Something Strange and Deadly
By Susan Dennard
Publisher: HarperTeen
Publication Date:July 24, 2012

Parasols, corsets, and…zombies?! The Luxe meets The Forest of Hands and Teeth in this compelling and witty debut novel-the first in a trilogy that will thrill fans of A Clockwork Angel and lovers of romance, things Victorian, and the macabre.
Sixteen-year-old Eleanor Fitt's brother is missing. And when she discovers that the Dead are rising in Philadelphia and wreaking havoc throughout the city, she knows that her brother is involved in some way. So Eleanor enlists the help of the Spirit-Hunters, a motley crew hired to protect the city from supernatural forces, believing their skills can save her brother. But as Eleanor spends time with the Spirit-Hunters, especially their handsome inventor, Daniel, the situation becomes dire. Now, not only is her reputation on the line, but her very life may hang in the balance.
Susan Dennard weaves together vividly imagined scenes of action, adventure, and gorgeous Victorian fashion to create an entertaining tapestry of humor, horror, and romance. Readers will be intrigued from the start.(synopsis from Edelweiss)

I am looking forward to reading this one. What are you waiting on?

I can't wait for this book too! The cover is very pretty, yet it still has a dark type feel to it. And, the synopsis sounds pretty cool! I'm excited to read it, when it comes out [the release date seems so far away...].

Okay, so I love the whole description, until I hear zombies...
I should probably just make myself read a zombie book b/c who knows? Maybe I'll actually like one in stead of just assuming I wont'. This one could be a good place to start! :) Thanks for sharing.
