Format: Paperback

Blurb: With radiant, snow white skin and hair, Percy Parker was a beacon for Fate. True love had found her, in the tempestuous form of Professor Alexi Rychman. But her mythic destiny was not complete. Accompanying the ghosts with which she alone could converse, new and terrifying omens loomed. A war was coming, a desperate ploy of a spectral host. Victorian London would be overrun.  Yet, Percy kept faith. Within the mighty bastion of Athens Academy, alongside The Guard whose magic shielded mortals from the agents of the Underworld, she counted herself among friends. Wreathed in hallowed fire, they would stand together, no matter what dreams or nightmares—may come. 

Review in 5: Beautiful, Action-packed, Moving, Interesting, and Powerful

Review: This book is somehow better than the first book in the Strangely Beautiful series. It started out a bit slow and I really didn't get into it until about half way through but...once I made it to a certain part (you will know when you read it) I was hooked and not letting go, it also seriously makes up for the slight slowness. This book picks up the storyline quite a bit, and it helps fill in some gaps about who Percy is and what she is meant to do, I love that about this book.

As with the last book, the characters and the writing are absolutely beautiful and there were so many moments where I was cheering and saying "GAH FINALLY" and jumping and there were also some moments when I was sad for the characters and even a point where I cried, yes people, I cried; such is the talent of Ms. Hieber, I don't easily cry at books. This is such a great book and such a great series...please check it out! Perfect for anyone who loves a great story. Period.
