Come with me to Victorian London, where we’ll enjoy the sights and then take a trip to Edinburgh, Scotland; maybe even visit a dark estate nearby, where numerous children await their fates. They’ve been gathered together, you see, because they are unusual. Some can heal, others, well…. best not discuss it. They’re called the Talents, and someone is hunting them. If you want to extend your visit, you’ll want to read Ordinary Monsters. It’s all in there. And there’s more to come since this points to a new trilogy. So don’t take my word for any of this. Just take the trip yourself and find out why these children are being hunted by that man made of smoke. Don’t close your eyes, though. You never know what might come up behind you!
