This book revolves around Rory, an American girl who is spending her senior year at a boarding school in London. While she is at school she has a frightening experience that leaves her with strange abilities and in a lot of danger. I would rather not say too much about the plot because this book is so mysterious, the less you know about it the more you can be surprised. But I will say it revolves around someone recreating the Jack the Ripper murders in modern day London.
I will say that this book creeped me out! I was reading it in bed one night and had to put it down because I was getting a little freaked out, but in a good way if that makes sense. The characters are very likable. I found Rory to be such an entertaining character to read and enjoyed her narration of the story. Not only did this book creep me out, it made me laugh too.
I think this book was a great set up for the rest of the series and now that the background story is set the next books can really take off. I just saw that the third book is set for release in March of next year. I would recommend you check this book out if you are looking for something a little bit different from what you usually read, or if you like creepy mysteries.
