From Goodreads:

England, 1883. Still recovering from the loss of her beloved sister, Evelyn is determined to use her powers to save other gifted people from those who would harm them. But when her rescue of a young telekinetic girl goes terribly wrong, Evelyn finds herself indebted to a secret society devoted to recruiting and protecting people like Evelyn and her friends.

As she follows the Society’s orders, healing the sick and embarking on perilous recruitment missions, Evelyn sees her problems disappear. Her reputation is repaired, her friends are provided for, and her parents are newly wealthy. She reunites with the dashing Mr. Kent and recovers the reclusive Mr. Braddock (who has much less to brood over now that the Society can help him to control his dangerous power). But Evelyn can’t help fearing the Society is more sinister than it appears...

There seemed to have been a theme this year with Victorian London and paranormal. This series, The Dark Days Club, A Shadow Burning and Bright. Probably some others that I've missed. Which was nice, it was what I cut my teeth on as a reader when I was in high school. History and intrigue and propriety warring with bizzare magics. Considering the first book, I'm curious as to how this will all turn out. How much everything will explode. Because it's book 2. Things will explode.
