About this Series
J. M. Miro introduces readers to the dark, labyrinthine world of The Talents in this epic historical fantasy series set in the gaslit streets of Victorian era London.
The first book Ordinary Monsters (“a towering achievement”- bestselling author Joe Hill) introduces the misfits, orphans, and runaway children who all share in common supernatural abilities. Charlie Ovid has a body that heals itself, his friend Marlowe shines with a strange bluish light that melts or mends flesh. Together, with a jaded detective, they make their way to a creepy estate outside Edinburgh where other children with gifts – the Talents – have gathered at the Institute. There, they must learn about their inner powers, as well as the nature of the shadowy monsters stalking them. Riveting in its scope, exquisitely written, this fascinating series presents a catastrophic vision of the Victorian world—and of the gifted, broken children who must save it.
