    PDF/EPUB Maureen Doyle McQuerry Å PDF/EPUB The Peculiars PDF/EPUB à Å babyandbeyondshow.co.uk peculiars pdf, The Peculiars Epub Warning there will be spoilers in this review but most are minor I will mark the major spoiler in a spoiler tag Hmm So this is what steampunk is It doesn’t seem any different than any other genres other than the fact that it’s set in the late 1800’s which I found out a little too late in the book I believe at around 40% and it’s time period is at the dawn of inventions such as the “aerocopter” It’s upsetting that this book has gotten such a low rating of two stars from me because it sounded really promising and to be honest it started off pretty promising but after the first 10% or so it all went downhill If you’re like me and your main interest in reading this book was because of the little snippet on Goodreads saying ”A daring escape in an aerocopter leads Lena into the wilds of Scree to fend off the many life threatening dangers in the wilderness and confront her deepest fears”then and I hate to break it to you you will probably be disappointed like I was be

Is she then one of those Peculiar people? Do they even exist? Was her father really a Goblin as her grandmother likes to say? If so is she destined to be a wicked wicked girl since Peculiars are said to have no soul?On her 18th Birthday she is given a letter written by her father and decides to travel on her own to the northern wilderness of

    PDF/EPUB Maureen Doyle McQuerry Å PDF/EPUB The Peculiars PDF/EPUB à Å babyandbeyondshow.co.uk peculiars pdf, The Peculiars EpubReview on Linny's LiteratureThe moment that I saw The Peculiars' beautiful cover I knew I would have to read it regardless of my general aversion to steam punk and a few reviews I saw that were far from raving Well guess what the cover has virtually nothing to do with the book That lovely character with the wings? Pretty sure that's the daughter of the maid of the man that the main character ends up working forJust what? So right off the bat The Peculiars lost my trust It never redeemed itselfI'll be honest I didn't finish this book I tried I really really did Normally it takes me an average of three days to read a book but I've been reading this one for two weeks and I had to throw in the towel at 75% Why you ask? Three simple reasons

    PDF/EPUB Maureen Doyle McQuerry Å PDF/EPUB The Peculiars PDF/EPUB à Å babyandbeyondshow.co.uk peculiars pdf, The Peculiars EpubI’m a big fan of the steampunk genre I love all the cool gadgets and contraptions It was with great anticipation that I picked up this book Set in the late 1880’s the Peculiars had that uirky Victorian feel As for the steampunk elements aside from a horseless carriage they really didn’t make much of an appearance until about Chapter 9The Peculiars is the story of Lena Matascar a young woman with strange hands and feet Lena is leaving her home to travel north in search of her estranged father She travels by train to the seaside town of Knob Koster where she plans to hire a guide to take her further north to Scree On

    PDF/EPUB Maureen Doyle McQuerry Å PDF/EPUB The Peculiars PDF/EPUB à Å babyandbeyondshow.co.uk peculiars pdf, The Peculiars Epub355 starsIn The Peculiars Mcuerry has created a fascinating steampunk alternate history of the American western frontier In this new time line some people are born with genetic abnormalities like wings or elongated hands and feet Rumors abound about a strange land to the north – a land filled with vast natural resources beasts criminals and such peculiar people These stories are often dismissed by law abiding non peculiar citizens as fantastical tales and the superstitions of gullible and unenlightened people But Lena Mattacascar knows better Lena herself displays physical signs of what her family doctor and grandmother both call “goblinism” in her thin hands and feet with their extra knuckles and stretched out appearance Suspecting that the father who contributed to her peculiarities and who abandoned she and

    PDF/EPUB Maureen Doyle McQuerry Å PDF/EPUB The Peculiars PDF/EPUB à Å babyandbeyondshow.co.uk peculiars pdf, The Peculiars EpubWell the Steampunk genre seems to be the next trend in YA fiction I find the concept of a lot of these books fascinating but I'm not sure if they're really going to be my kind of thing I was very intrigued by The Peculiars I loved the awesome cover and the premise sounded different and interesting I definitely haven't read many books like this so have nothing to compare it with But really I didn't find this one all that impressive It wasn't bad but was missing that extra spark for meIt started off so well It's not exactly a very uick read but I still flew threw the first half of it I was so into this world and the characters I loved all the little inventions and I couldn't wait to find out about The Peculiars and Lena's real past I liked Lena a lot I could empathise with her easily and could understand why she made the decisions she did It's only n

    PDF/EPUB Maureen Doyle McQuerry Å PDF/EPUB The Peculiars PDF/EPUB à Å babyandbeyondshow.co.uk peculiars pdf, The Peculiars EpubI had to force myself to finish this There just wasn't enough oomph in the story to keep me interestedThe premise sounds good but the reality of the plot wasn't my cuppa Lena thinks she may be a Peculiar because she has really loooong hands and feet Her feet have soft suishy soles and her fingers have an extra knuckle Sorry but that sounds grossEvidently people are just starting to find out about the existence of Peculiars and the backlash is not goodShe meets another family of Peculiars during her adventure and they have little wings coming out of their shoulder blades Can they fly? NoOk so these guys are like the X Menbut without any superpowers BoooooringLena herself is not a particularly sympathetic character and nothing about her personality is super duper interesting So when you add it all up?It's not so awesome I wouldn't recommend thi
