"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
