These Vicious Masks
by Kelly Zekas, Tarun Shanker   


Evelyn has no interest in marriage and even the dashing Mr. Kent can't make her want to live up to society's expectations. She'd much rather assist her beloved sister Rose in becoming the world's first female doctor. But everything changes the night she meets Sebastian Braddock – not only is the reclusive lord both vexing and surprisingly attractive, he's also quite possibly mad, and his interest in Rose is galling. So when Evelyn wakes up to discover that Rose has disappeared, she immediately suspects Sebastian.

But then she discovers that Sebastian's strange tales of special powers are actually true, and that Rose's kidnappers have worse in mind for her than simply ruining her reputation. Surrounded by secrets, lies, and unprecedented danger, Evelyn has no choice but to trust Sebastian, yet she can't help but worry that Sebastian's secrets are the most dangerous of all…


"Absolute page turner!"  By Ashia 1 year ago

These Vicious Masks is an absolute page turner! The combination of historical and paranormal makes for a refreshing change. The story moves at a steady pace with a mix of action and revelation that is compelling.

My only gripe is that once the idea of people with powers emerged, suddenly, everyone has power! Er..that makes it a bit unbelievable. However, what I also like is that the ending is not contrived, and even the hero and heroine's parting is realistic. I can't wait to read the next installment in this series.
