Evelyn is on a quest for revenge.

England, 1883. On the run with the grieving Sebastian Braddock, Evelyn wants two things: to be reunited with her friends, and to get revenge on the evil Captain Goode. Not only has he misused his and Sebastian’s powers to rack up a terrible death toll, but he's also completely destroyed any hope of Evelyn or her friends regaining the life they once knew.

Evelyn is determined to make Captain Goode pay for what he's done, but is her revenge worth risking the lives of Sebastian and her friends? Or is it better to flee the city and focus on staying alive? And with the Captain spreading lies about Sebastian in an attempt to flush them out of hiding and turn the populace against them, does she even have a choice at all?

What people are saying about the These Vicious Masks trilogy:

"I'm not sure how to properly convey how much I adore this trilogy. The characters are smart and sweet and flawed and relatable. ... Get ready for a twisting, turning ride full of squees and sighs and book-flinging and maybe some tears. I was so thrilled to get an early copy of this book, but now I'm just envious of everyone who still gets to experience it for the first time." —Destiny Soria, author of Iron Cast and Beneath the Citadel, on These Vengeful Souls

"Very well done indeed! Having loved the first book, These Vicious Masks, I was quite eager to read its sequel which I am thrilled to confirm is just as thrilling, if not more so, than its predecessor. ... Overflowing with thrilling plot twists, fascinating characters, and proving itself as an overall exhilarating read, These Ruthless Deeds pens its drama with a sharp knife dipped in darkest blood, curling its tale with poise, short-breaths, and an unyielding hand." —Pooled Ink, on These Ruthless Deeds

"These Vicious Masks was every bit as good as I hoped! Intriguing and gorgeous from start to finish! I highly, HIGHLY recommend this engaging tale of a 19th century England society, complicated by mysterious abilities, kidnapping and a swoony, Darcy-like love interest." —The Forest of Words and Pages, on These Vicious Masks
