Review: This is the first book in the Shades of London series and I really liked it. The plot was well paced and exciting and I liked the inclusion of the Jack the Ripper story. The mystery and suspense made it hard to put this book down after things got going. I also really enjoyed the setting of boarding school in London. I always enjoy books that have a really unique setting and I think this one added a lot to the story. The way things eventually played out was exciting and then ending was a slight cliffhanger which made me really excitied to continue with this sereis. The characters in this book were very well written and unique. I really liked Rory as a main character. She was a very believable character and I liked that she showed her fear yet still was strong when it mattered. Jazza was also a really fun character. I wish she had been included more especially in the second half of the book. Boo, Stephan and Callum were interesting as well. I hope we get to know them better in the next book. I am really looking forward to seeing where this story goes in the future books of this series.
