Eyecatcher: Something Strange and Deadly by Susan Dennard

Something Strange and Deadly
by Susan Dennard

ISBN: 9780062083265
Release Date: July 24, 2012

from the author's site: 

There’s something
strange and deadly loose in Philadelphia…
The years 1876, and 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.

why it caught my eye: 

I LOVE that cover. It's absolutely gorgeous. That was enough to entice me to find the blurb on the author's site, and I have to say I'm intrigued. I love Victorian stories as well as all things paranormal so I suspect I'm going to love this one as well. Too bad I have to wait until July for it. Guess I'll just have to be patient. :)
