This week, the book on Ely's wishlist is:
The Madness Underneath (Shades of London #2) by Maureen Johnson
After her near-fatal
run-in with the Jack the Ripper copycat, Rory Devereaux has been living
in Bristol under the close watch of her parents. So when her therapist
suddenly suggests she return to Wexford, Rory jumps at the chance. But
Rory's brush with the Ripper touched her more than she thought possible:
she's become a human terminus, with the power to eliminate ghosts on
contact. She soon finds out that the Shades—the city's secret
ghost-fighting police—are responsible for her return. The Ripper may be
gone, but now there is a string of new inexplicable deaths threatening
London. Rory has evidence that the deaths are no coincidence. Something
much more sinister is going on, and now she must convince the squad to
listen to her before it's too late.
In this follow-up to the
Edgar Award-nominated The Name of the Star, Maureen Johnson adds another
layer of spectacularly gruesome details to the streets of London that
will keep you on the edge of your seat until the very end.
I recently read the first book, The Name of the Star, and I seriously cannot wait until I can get this one!!
