Blood Rose Rebellion by Rosalyn Eves
Blood Rose Rebellion had such an intriguing premise – Victorian-like society where magical people are the elite and magic rules. This story had a lot of intriguing and beautiful folklore as well, but magic dominates the story and what happens with the characters. The system of magic is compelling and intriguing. And yes, it does have a few love interests 😉 I did have a few issues with it, but it was still interesting. Check out my review here!

These Vicious Masks by Tarun Shanker and Kelly Zekas
Okay, I loved this book. I love this series. It is set in Victorian London – and not alternate London like BRR. It still includes a compelling and intriguing magic system. There are secret magic societies, epic magical powers, and yes, a few love interests. It is pitched as Jane Austen meets X Men. This has a lot more humor than BRR, but BRR does have the amazing folklore while this does not. It does not get as creepy as BRR as well. However, the feeling of the story, the cool magic Victorian setting, the multiple love interests, and complex magic systems will still provide a lot fo the same feels that you might feel.
