these vicious masks pub day


Dearest Swoon Readers,

We're so glad you're here to share this glorious occasion with us. We must confess that today is a particularly special one, as it is the publication day of These Vicious Masks by Tarun Shanker and Kelly Zekas! We hope you will join us in celebrating this ridiculously awesome book.

What people are saying about These Vicious Masks:

"Striking a strong balance between romance and mystery, this novel captures society’s rules just as well as it does the unbelievable powers of the main characters. Readers will easily be swept up in its fast pace and sympathetic narrator, who is filled with both self-doubt and resolve to do anything to protect those she loves. This is a perfect pick for someone who wants a little magic in their Victorian novels, and its combination of historical fiction and mysticism will remind readers of Libba Bray’s Gemma Doyle trilogy." —Booklist

"This tale has brisk pacing, plenty of action, and a heroine with more than her fair share of girl-power confidence." ―School Library Journal

"These Vicious Masks was every bit as good as I hoped! Intriguing and gorgeous from start to finish! I highly, HIGHLY recommend this engaging tale of a 19th century England society, complicated by mysterious abilities, kidnapping and a swoony, Darcy-like love interest." —The Forest of Words and Pages

"These Vicious Masks is one of those books that you can’t help but adore from the moment you begin reading. ... simply tons of fun!" —Books & Cleverness
