Review Something Strange and Deadly by Susan Dennard

Something Strange and Deadly (Something Strange and Deadly, #1)Something Strange and Deadly by Susan Dennard
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I never thought I would like this book but hey this is my year of reading books I never thought I would like.

And there is two things that bring up my attention ...
The 19th Century

I finish this book in one sitting and it was awesome and badass (especially for Eleanor) and it's just the first book... Imagine how incredible are going to be the next two.

The story is about a girl who ask a group that defeats zombies (in the book zombies are called the Dead) and spirits to find his brother that was kidnapped by the villain, the necromancer.

Characters: I just found another OTP to follow up and that pair is Eleanor and Daniel. I hate Eleanor's mother but the others characters like Joseph and Jie, I like them very much.
Setting: The 19th century, Philadelphia, US, and where zombies, ghost and magic , exist.
Narrative: Steady and in first person, in the point of view of Eleanor.
Cover: It's a gorgeous cover of the main character, Eleanor.
Story: Zombies, Spirits, The 19th century, a strong main character, magic, I haven't read something like this and it surprise me how good this book is.
Conclusion: This book was lovely, the characters likable (except for like 2 or 3), the story leave me wanting for more.

Well after I finish this lovely review, I'm going to search for the next book, I need to know what is going to happen and the good thing is that all the books have been release so my burden to wait for the other book is not going to be big.

  1. Ahh! I love the SS&D trilogy!

    The magic and the way everything works is such an interesting concept. And Eleanor and Daniel are one of my many favourite OTPs. ^.^ I need more of them, especially with the way the book ended.

    Oooh, Eleanor's mom. If you don't like her now, you'll dislike her even more in the next book. I sure did. Great review!
