The Strangely Beautiful Tale of Miss Percy Parker


Publisher: Leisure Books

Publish Date: 20 August 2009

Origins: Author for Review

Format: Mass Market Paperback

Blurb: What fortune awaited sweet, timid Percy Parker at Athens Academy?  Considering how few of Queen Victoria’s Londoners knew of it, the great Romanesque fortress was dreadfully imposing, and little could Percy guess what lay inside. She had never met the powerful and mysterious Professor Alexi Rychman, knew nothing of the growing shadow, the Ripper and other supernatural terrors against which his coterie stood guard. She knew simply that she was different, haunted, with her snow-white hair, pearlescent skin and uncanny gifts.

Review in 5: Steampunk, Intriguing, Ghosts, Fresh, Beautiful

Review: I have had this book for way longer than I should have, and I apologize for that. I read it all in one sitting, after I finally sat down with it. It is amazing! This book has everything you can want in a great paranormal! It has ghosts, outcasts, sexy professors, friends, and amazing writing.

The characters in this story are the some of the best I have ever read and truly make the story so beautiful. They jump off the page and beg you to keep reading about them. The story itself is unique and fresh, such a great ingenious premise, and so different from so many other paranormal stories I have read. To continue on my gushing spree, the writing is so beautiful, almost lyrical and poetic in nature. I enjoyed jumping into the writing just as much as I loved the story and the characters.

I love this book, it is so beautiful and I can't wait to read the next one.
