Summary: There’s something strange and deadly loose in Philadelphia…

Eleanor Fitt has a lot to worry about. Her brother has gone missing, her family has fallen on hard times, and her mother is determined to marry her off to any rich young man who walks by. But this is nothing compared to what she’s just read in the newspaper—

The Dead are rising in Philadelphia.

And then, in a frightening attack, a zombie delivers a letter to Eleanor…from her brother.

Whoever is controlling the Dead army has taken her brother as well. If Eleanor is going to find him, she’ll have to venture into the lab of the notorious Spirit-Hunters, who protect the city from supernatural forces. But as Eleanor spends more time with the Spirit-Hunters, including their maddeningly stubborn yet handsome inventor, Daniel, the situation becomes dire. And now, not only is her reputation on the line, but her very life may hang in the balance.

OMGosh look at this book cover! I am so in love with it. I can't stop staring at it. Argh! Amazing. And then obviously the story sounds sooooo good, it reminds me of Dearly, Departed by Lia Habel-- a zombie steampunk adventure!! I'm all about it!

What is everyone else waiting on this week??

  10. So funny, because when I first saw this book I thought the same thing - that it reminded me of Dearly, Departed. I'm extremely, EXTREMELY excited for this for the zombies (I have a fetish) and I can't help but be pulled in by the cover as well (I'm basically a cover slut)!

    Have an amazing reading week!
