Cover Shot! Something Strange and Deadly by Susan Dennard

Here is another 2012 book that I am frothing at the mouth to get my hands on.  Something Strange and Deadly by Susan Dennard has zombies!  And a girl in a really, really big dress!  How does she walk through doorways wearing that?  Despite the impracticalities of a skirt that large, this is a very stunning cover.  Is this on your wish list?



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.
