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 that his strange tales of extraordinary people are true—and that her sister is in graver danger than she feared.
Jane Austen meets X-Men!!! Do I need to explain more about why I want to read this book? I grew up watching X-Men: Evolution cartoons. Didn't miss an episode. My favorite characters were Wolverine, Rogue, and Shadowcat. No specific reasons why I liked them much. But I remember concentrating too hard on an object to move it around like Jane and Professor Charles and trying to walk through the walls like Kitty did. Lol! How I wished to be a mutant and save the world *Hides Face in Palms*. And Jane Austen, one of my favorite writers. She made me fall in love with all that's "Proper English" and soon I became an Anglophile. Well... These Viciouc Masks is set in Victorian England- another reason why I'm eager to read it. I'm ready to meet Evelyn, Rose, Mr. Kent and Sebastin Braddock. Are you?
