If you’re looking for something that’s a change from the constant wave of dystopian blather in YA literature, The Peculiars is it. It’s an adventurous story with a likeable heroine, set in a quirky historical time period. Steampunk fantasy? Sure, why not?
McQuerry is a natural writer, and I delighted in every last page, here. Her characters are colorful and creative, and each setting is full of detail. I loved the fun of reading historical fiction mixed with fantasy. I’ll be looking for more from McQuerry in the future.
