Publisher Description

A young woman discovers her mysterious powers could help catch a killer in the first book of The Diviners series--a stunning supernatural historical mystery set in 1920s New York City, from Printz Award-winning and New York Times bestselling author Libba Bray.

Evangeline O'Neill has been exiled from her boring old hometown and sent off to the bustling streets of New York City--and she is ecstatic. It's 1926, and New York is filled with speakeasies, Ziegfeld girls, and rakish pickpockets. The only catch is that she has to live with her uncle Will and his unhealthy obsession with the occult. Evie worries he'll discover her darkest secret: a supernatural power that has only brought her trouble so far.

When the police find a murdered girl branded with a cryptic symbol and Will is called to the scene, Evie realizes her gift could help catch a serial killer. As Evie jumps headlong into a dance with a murderer, other stories unfurl in the city that never sleeps. And unknown to all, something dark and evil has awakened....

So good

Very different then I thought it was going to be.

Amazing!

I loved this book from the moment I picked it up. The setting is so detailed and so are the characters, but there is also things you don't see coming and add a shock factor. The way the author brought in the bits of supernatural genre is stunning. I'll probably end up reading this over and over.

A must read for older ages!

The book is not for children, but it's fantastic. It has a darker theme and his intense at times. This book just draws you in with the atmosphere and characters. I love the time period and the sassy main character. I have been waiting over a year for the sequel, I can't wait.
