For those of you new to BookTasty, Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme (hosted by Breaking the Spine) that I participate in. Each week I highlight an upcoming new release that I’m particularly excited for.
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 to get back to her friends. 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.
I just finished The Name of the Star, the first Shades of London book, in December and I was completely obsessed with it for the entire week I listened to the audiobook! It was just so creepy and intriguing! Also, I had just come home from my vacation to London so reading about all the locations I’d seen made it that much more awesome, so I cannot wait for The Madness Underneath! Actually, I have the ARC from NetGalley (THANK YOU Putnam Juvenile!) so I don’t have to wait until February 26 to read it! YAAAAY!
