In My Mailbox #42

I haven't made an In My Mailbox, in a VERY long time! Yes, that's very true!

I'm actually trying to catch up with all the books I have in my shelf, that I haven't read yet! Once I'm pretty much done, that's when I'll go back to buying more books! I just feel bad, for books that have been sitting on my shelf for months, that I still haven't read them.

But this week I did receive one book...

The Peculiars
The Peculiars, byMaureen Doyle McQuerry.

"This dark and thrilling adventure, with an unforgettable heroine, will captivate fans of steampunk, fantasy, and romance.

On her 18th birthday, Lena Mattacascar decides to search for her father, who disappeared into the northern wilderness of Scree when Lena was young. Scree is inhabited by Peculiars, people whose unusual characteristics make them unacceptable to modern society. Lena wonders if her father is the source of her own extraordinary characteristics and if she, too, is Peculiar. On the train she meets a young librarian, Jimson Quiggley, who is traveling to a town on the edge of Scree to work in the home and library of the inventor Mr. Beasley. The train is stopped by men being chased by the handsome young marshal Thomas Saltre. When Saltre learns who Lena’s father is, he convinces her to spy on Mr. Beasley and the strange folk who disappear into his home, Zephyr House. A daring escape in an aerocopter leads Lena into the wilds of Scree to confront her deepest fears."
