When you live a life of secrets, you trust no one and question everything
Nineteen-year-old Bess Martin has many secrets. She can outride, outshoot, and outsmart most people, but her greatest secret...she is the leader of the Phantoms, a spy organization.

After spending three years fighting in a war, eighteen-year-old Jack Martin returns home to Philadelphia with his sister Bess, ready to live a life of ease, but what is waiting for them is a task more difficult than any other battle they have fought.

When people start disappearing and the weather turns unusually cold, the city is in a panic. They believe the war angered a deity and that the disappearances are the sacrifices, but who will be next? When presidential hopeful James Monroe is targeted, all clues lead to the mysterious secret society known as Levitas. It is up to Bess, Jack, and their team of Phantoms to uncover a dark and winding plot that reaches further than they could have ever imagined. As their journey draws them deep into secrets of the past, Bess and Jack may come to find that a normal life is not possible when you are a spy.

Phantoms in Philadelphia by Amalie Vantana is the first book in the Phantom Knights series.  It takes place in 1816 and tells the story of Bess and her brother Jack, both spies, who are in search of the organization Levitas.  Through secrets and social formalities their world is not what it seems. Phantoms in Philadelphia is an excellent read.  It is fast paced and full of action and intrigue.  It is a good escape from reality and draws you in from the first page.

What an amazing story debuting a new series. Centered around two siblings, this story is full of espionage, intrigue, with a good dose of secret societies. Both will deal with being spies in a post-war world, and they still wonder who can they trust and would that trust cause their own fall? The characters are so personable, even as spies. I couldn't help but feel for both Bess and Jack, willing them to win, even against the odds they face. With the clever ploy of masks, Amalie Vantana brings their world to life in a fun way. I was so enthralled that I could not put the book down, and cannot wait to read more.

I don't usually give up on a book and not finish it but this one just could not hold my interest.

I was skeptical at first, but the story quickly won me over. I was riveted, the story sucked me in from the first page. I felt like I was in the book and when I found out who the White Phantom was I flipped out. I loved the t.v. show Lost and the twists and turns in this book reminded me of that.  I really enjoyed the fact that they kept me guessing what was going to happen next. Most books now days are extremely predictable and it was refreshing to read something that makes you think.  Another thing I like was that Jack and Bess both had constant struggles and they had to overcome them. I loved when they were fighting that giant guy, I was freaking out, it was great.  This is one of those books that I am sure I will read again and again. I also liked how the author followed both lead characters, that was really interesting and it let me see things from a totally different angle. Over all I loved it. The feelings, the characters and the situations, they all felt real. I can't wait to see what happens next.
