Title: The Unnaturalists
Author: Tiffany Trent
In an alternate London where magical creatures are preserved in a museum, two teens find themselves caught in a web of intrigue, deception, and danger.
Vespa Nyx wants nothing more than to spend the rest of her life cataloging Unnatural creatures in her father’s museum, but as she gets older, the requirement to become a lady and find a husband is looming large. Syrus Reed’s Tinker family has always served and revered the Unnaturals from afar, but when his family is captured to be refinery slaves, he finds that his fate may be bound up with Vespa’s—and with the Unnaturals.
As the danger grows, Vespa and Syrus find themselves in a tightening web of deception and intrigue. At stake may be the fate of New London—and the world.
So far I’m really liking this book and I’m halfway into it. I like the world building and I like the characters. Well, Vespa has gotten a bit irritating every now and again but on the whole she’s turned out well. I can’t decide if Syrus or Pedant Lumin is my favorite character. It’s a tie for now.
The reading of it has gone quickly. I started at 3% yesterday and finished at 58% by the end of the day. I didn’t read incessantly either. I was watching baseball and things like that. So it seems like a quick read. Maybe that means I’ll finish it today! I can’t wait to share my thoughts with you in my review!
