We d A bit on the slow side, but for the most part I really enjoyed this! Books with missing cover.

I really want to applaud Ms Bray for doing so many different things and getting them all right. Books and movies do not scare me often, I avoid horror because I’m mostly immune to it.

But New York City isn’t about just jazz babies and follies girls. Political groups clashing with the government, wounds aching because the loved one lost to the Great meaningless War.

When the police find a murdered girl branded with a cryptic symbol and Will is called to the scene, Evie realizes her gift could help catch a serial killer.

She is a Ziegfeld girl with a hidden power of burning things down. Speaking of unnerving, Sam Lloyd was introduced when Evie stepped of the train, and I was completely swept off my feet. No access to e-mail. Also, Libbs understand why some people would find the s slang irritating, but I was so charmed by the characters and fiviners that I really didn’t mind. I’ve been a die-hard Libba Bray fan ever since the fabulous Gemma Doyle books.


She ran toward life full tilt while Jericho held back, not daring. She’s never fit in in small town Ohio and when she causes yet another scandal, she’s shipped off to stay with an uncle in the big city.

The Facebook page really helpful with Pictures and advertising divjners the 20s ,even Naughty John’s horrible tune. Just imagine the 20’s——the roaring 20’s, with the speakeasies and the flappers and all that wonderfulness.

What is it about writing an author bio that gives me that deer-in-headlights feeling? At the same time, an ouija board has awakened a spirit by the name of Naughty John.
