These Vengeful Souls by Tarun Shanker and Kelly Zekas - ADVISABLE

Shanker, Tarun and Kelly Zekas  These Vengeful Souls (These Vicious Masks #3), 290 pages.  Swoon (Feiwel and Friends), 2017. $11.  Content: Language: PG-13 (29 swears); Mature Content: PG; Violence; PG-13. 
Evelyn, Sebastian and her group of friends are on the run since Captain Goode has pinned the deaths of a hundred plus people on their magical powers.  Goode has duped the government leaders as well as most of London into believing that he is the good guy because he can suppress the special powers of others, but he is simply creating illusions of his heroics.  Evelyn has to outsmart Captain Goode to save those like her with the help of her closest friends. 
I enjoyed this trilogy and I think that the world and it’s magical powers are well explained and make sense as different problems are solved.  Even though there are a lot of characters, they are distinguishable and their powers are unique. I especially liked Mr. Kent’s humor.  My only issue with this book is the epilogue-specifically the date of the epilogue in relation to the end of the book-it was disappointing.  The violence is threat of torture and battling with magic.
