Series: Shades Of London #1
Author: Maureen Johnson
Genre: Young Adult, Fantasy
Publisher: Putnam Juvenile
Release Date: September 2011
What is it About?
A American teenage girl has a near death experience at her new London school and life becomes horrifically different .
I wasn’t expecting so much fantasy from a Maureen Johnson book but I thoroughly enjoyed all the mystery and trills. I liked that I really didn’t know where the story was going. I thought that her third roommate was going to be a bad guy and it ends up going a totally different route with her.
I also hope they bring some the special characters, meaning the ones only certain people can see.
I am definitely interested in where the series will be taken. It was a fun read better then I thought because I wasn’t thrilled about the Ripper character but it surprised me in the end.
