It’s Boston, 1919, and the Cast Iron club is packed. On stage, hemopaths—whose "afflicted" blood gives them the ability to create illusions through art—captivate their audience. Corinne and Ada have been best friends ever since infamous gangster Johnny Dervish recruited them into his circle. By night they perform for Johnny’s crowds, and by day they con Boston’s elite. When a job goes wrong and Ada is imprisoned, they realize how precarious their position is. After she escapes, two of the Cast Iron’s hires are shot, and Johnny disappears. With the law closing in, Corinne and Ada are forced to hunt for answers, even as betrayal faces them at every turn.
Why I'm Waiting...
The cover is what drew me to this book at first. It reminded me a little of the Disney movie "The Princess and the Frog" because of the time period and the voodoo looking necklace. Who cares it's set in Boston, it should totally take place in New Orleans. The part that really got me wanting to read this book was the "afflicted" blood...illusions through art...imprisoned...betrayal...looks good!!
