Something Strange and Deadly by Susan Dennard

 From Goodreads

There’s something strange and deadly loose in Philadelphia… 

Eleanor Fitt has a lot to worry about. Her brother has gone missing, her family has fallen on hard times, and her mother is determined to marry her off to any rich young man who walks by. But this is nothing compared to what she’s just read in the newspaper— 

The Dead are rising in Philadelphia. 

And then, in a frightening attack, a zombie delivers a letter to Eleanor…from her brother. 

Whoever is controlling the Dead army has taken her brother as well. If Eleanor is going to find him, she’ll have to venture into the lab of the notorious Spirit-Hunters, who protect the city from supernatural forces. But as Eleanor spends more time with the Spirit-Hunters, including their maddeningly stubborn yet handsome inventor, Daniel, the situation becomes dire. And now, not only is her reputation on the line, but her very life may hang in the balance.

First I love this cover. I am really excited to read this book. Now I am about to say something that may go against the popular vote but...I don't like zombies. *ducks as the unruly crowd throws rotten vegetable's* But I am very excited to read about the Spirit-Hunters. 


  1. OMG love the cover of this book, and It sounds fabulous!!

  2. ooooooh, Kriston! Great find. I haven't heard of this one before. I love the cover too. Thanks for letting me know to look out for it.

  3. Thanks for stopping by Laura and Missie. In a way the plot reminds me a tad of Clockwork Angel. But I'm still excited for it.
