These Ruthless Deeds by Tarum Shanker and Kelly Zekas - ADVISABLE

Shanker, Tarun and Kelly Zekas These Ruthless Deeds (These Vicious Masks, #2), 313 pags. Swoon Reads, 2017. $11. Content: Language: PG-13 (16 swears); Mature Content: PG-13; Violence: PG-13.  

Evelyn has the power to heal others, but since the loss of her sister she feels untethered.  When the Society of Aberrations tries to recruit Evelyn, she is hesitant because they collect people with powers and assign them missions that don’t always seem on the up and up.  Evelyn has her close friends, Mr. Kent and Sebastian, the boy whose powers she off-sets because he has the power to take life, but she is still unsure if the Society is for good or bad.  When a mission goes wrong, Evelyn has to decide for herself and the friends that are loyal to her, if she is going to challenge the Society of Aberrations.  

I enjoy this series.  Even though it’s a second book, the action is non-stop and I could quickly remember what happened in the first book.  I love the characters and the setting of 1880 England.  The mature content is French kissing and the violence includes torture.  

MS, HS – ADVISABLE.  Reviewer, C. Peterson.
