[Waiting On Wednesday: The Spiritglass Charade]

Waiting On Wednesday happens every week on Wednesdays (hence the name) and is hosted by Breaking The Spine.  It's were people talk about the books they want to read about that aren't out yet.

My pick this week is...

"The Spiritglass Charade"
Author: Colleen Gleason
Release Date: October 7th, 2014


After the Affair of the Clockwork Scarab, Evaline Stoker and Mina Holmes are eager to help Princess Alix with a new case. Seventeen-year-old Willa Aston is obsessed with spiritual mediums, convinced she is speaking with her mother from beyond the grave. What seems like a case of spiritualist fraud quickly devolves into something far more menacing: someone is trying to make Willa "appear lunatic," using an innocent-looking spiritglass to control her. The list of clues piles up: an unexpected murder, a gang of pickpockets, and the return of vampires to London. But are these events connected? As Uncle Sherlock would say, "there are no coincidences." It will take all of Mina's wit and Evaline's muscle to keep London's sinister underground at bay.

I adored the first book in this series, even if it wasn't perfect and I can't wait to see what Miss Stoker and Miss Holmes are up to this time. The word is imaginative and so awesome. If you haven't read The Clockwork Scarab, do it!

What are you waiting on this week?  I wanna know!

Ooh, I still haven't read the first book, even though it's sitting on my shelf from BEA... *bad blogger* BUT I'm excited by the idea behind it and now that the second one is coming I know I have to get my butt in gear!
