Daniel Sheridan is an engineer's apprentice on a haunted Mississippi steamer known as the Sadie Queen. His best friend-the apprentice pilot, Cassidy Cochran-also happens to be the girl he's pining for... and the captain's daughter. But when it looks like the Sadie Queen might get taken off the river, Daniel and Cassidy have to do whatever they can to stop the ghosts that plague the ship.
Fortunately, there happens to be a Creole gentleman on board by the name of Joseph Boyer--and he just might be able to help them...
Yes! A story about Daniel and how he met and joined up with Joseph. It also tells a very sad tale of a first love. A Dawn Most Wicked is a perfect "prequel" to Something Strange and Deadly. I put quotation around prequel because you should really read Something Strange and Deadly first.
I love the fact that these are the same characters we met and loved in the first book. They haven't changed, but instead we see a different side, and a deeper glimpse into who they are. It leaves me so excited for A Darkness Strange and Lovely's release! I am so glad I pre-ordered this novella.
