Felicity Cole sells flowers in the streets of Victorian London to feed herself and her young brother. But she has a close-guarded secret-her brother is a Tainted, born with special abilities that society fears and a shadowy organization called the Hunstsman scours the country to eliminate. When Felicity becomes the target of one of these individuals, she discovers something horrible: she's Tainted, too.

Rescued by a mysterious gentleman on the eve of execution, she's whisked away to a school funded by Queen Victoria, established to train selected Tainted into assassins in service of the crown.

Struggling to harness her incredible strength, speed, and agility, and despised by her classmates, all she wants is to use her new position to find a cure so she can be normal and reunited with her brother.

But with the Golden Jubilee fast approaching and the discovery that there's a traitor in their midst, she has no choice but to embrace the one thing she's been fighting all along.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Praise for Game of Secrets:

"I really enjoyed Game of Secret! It reminded me of The Bone Season meets X-Men in how it addresses identity, loyalty, and the labels that the world can force upon you. London in 1887 is the perfect setting for this book with its call-back to the supernatural elements of the old penny dreadfuls at odds with a proud society on the brink of modernism and technology. It's an exciting, captivating, and inspiring story for any teen who has ever felt out of place, torn in two between the comfort of the familiar and the thrill of an unknown future. This is a great debut!" C. V. Wyk, author of Blood and Sand

"A captivating page-turner of a book that plunges the reader head-first into the grit and glamour of nineteenth-century Britain." -Heather Fawcett, author of Even the Darkest Stars and All the Wandering Light
