Secrets...

The Diviners

Title: The Diviners
By: Libba Bray

New York City, 1926

After inadvertently causing a scandal back home in Ohio, Evie O’Neill is sent to New York to stay with her Uncle Will, who runs the Museum of American Folklore, Superstition and the Occult. While Evie is excited about coming to New York, seeing an old friend, and visiting speakeasies, she is uneasy about her uncle’s line of work. If Uncle Will looks closely enough, he might find out Evie’s secret, the real reason she was sent away from Ohio—Evie has the ability to “tell your secrets simply by holding an object dear to you and concentrating on it.” People with powers like Evie’s are known as Diviners. They are seen as both valuable and feared. Evie knows she can’t keep her secret from her uncle for long, especially after Will is called in by the police to help investigate a series of murders that may be tied to the occult. The investigation will show Evie the dark side of New York City and bring her together with people who are more like her than she ever could have imagined.

Something wicked this way comes.
