Waiting on Wednesday #23

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme created by Jill @ Breaking the Spine where we feature some of our most anticipated releases. We're hoping most of you have heard of these titles so we can rant about how excruciatingly long these publication dates are. 

Alex's WoW Pick

Title: These Vicious Masks
Author: Tarun Shanker, Kelly Zekas 
Pages: 352 pages
Published: February 9th, 2016
Genre: Historical Fiction, Paranormal Romance
Jane Austen meets X-Men in this gripping and adventure-filled paranormal romance set in Victorian London.

England, 1882. Evelyn is bored with society and its expectations. So when her beloved sister, Rose, mysteriously vanishes, she ignores her parents and travels to London to find her, accompanied by dashing Mr. Kent. But they're not the only ones looking for Rose. The reclusive, young gentleman Sebastian Braddock is also searching for her, claiming that both sisters have special healing powers. Evelyn is convinced that Sebastian must be mad, until she discovers the strange tales of extraordinary people are true-- and that her sister is in graver danger than she feared. 

I can imagine this book being as kick-ass as the movie, League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. It's about these group of people with special abilities who come together to stop an evil man from using abilities to crush the world *evil laugh*. I'm looking forward to the historical aspect of this book as well. Victorian London? I'm hoping it's the dark side of London and very grotesque!

What are you waiting for?
