My e-mail this morning included a promotional note about Claudia Gray's recently-released novel Fateful, which I skimmed with tepid interest. The cover didn't catch my eye, and our "To Be Read" shelf has enough historical YA romances on it to supply a mid-sized bookstore. But as I kept reading, my interest level grew exponentially. According to the plot description, this book features:
A) an Upstairs, Downstairs romance between a long-suffering housemaid and a rich young man with a dark and mysterious past,I am going to read this book; I like an author who's not afraid to go big or go home.
B) a setting aboard the RMS Titanic, and
C) werewolves. (Seriously.)
