Cass can survive in the Mist.1 The secret in her blood could help everyone, but does she want to save an evil world of people who killed the poor to save themselves, and tried to kill her because of her special ability? Still, in this world the heroic Captain Greeley rescued her from life on the streets, and Theo Winchester is willing to forsake his privileged life to find a cure for the Mist. How can Cass confront her hatred and distrust of the echelon, working closely with Theo to find a cure for the Mist and a solution for the zombie-like Turned? Morgan L. Busse’s Blood Secrets charts a satisfying conclusion to the Skyworld duology, with dashing prose that draws readers into this world of steam and mystery.
