These Vicious Masks by Tarun Shanker and Kelly Zekas

Amazon USA Amazon UK
Review by Suze
Evelyn's parents want her to get married as soon as possible. Evelyn doesn't like to be part of society and isn't interested in a beneficial marriage. Her sister Rose also has different plans for her future. She wants to become a doctor and Evelyn would love to assist her. She'd do anything for Rose. When Rose disappears Evelyn travels to London to look for her. Together with her friends Mr. Kent and Mr. Braddock Evelyn tries to find out the truth about her sister's disappearance. She learns some shocking things about herself and the people she's dealing with and she doesn't have much time to adjust. In a world filled with secrets it isn't easy to find out who she can trust. Will Evelyn be able to save her sister?
These Vicious Masks is an amazing book about special abilities, society life and people who have things to hide. Evelyn is fierce and fearless. She will do anything to protect the people she loves. This means she makes mistakes, but she's willing to put herself at risk for the sake of others over and over again. I liked that about her. Fortunately there are also people she can count on in return. The connections in this story are unique and I found them fascinating. People have hidden depths and I often couldn't wait to find out what they were.
The story has been cleverly constructed and the writing is fluent and entertaining. These Vicious Masks is an adrenaline rush, there's never a dull moment. I liked this fantastic rollercoaster ride. The ending is unexpected. I was surprised by it and loved it. If you're looking for a quick, quality read about a great topic get this book. I loved the story and the main characters are absolutely fantastic. 


  1. I've not heard of this book series, I shall have to check them out :)

    1. I'm not sure if it's going to be a series, but I definitely hope so...

  2. Is this a historical fiction novel, or in a modern setting? It sounds like the beneficial marriage thing would be during the 1800s or something.
