Book Review:
The Madness Underneath by Maureen Johnson

Title: The Madness Underneath
Author: Maureen Johnson
Published: 2013
Language: English
Pages: 305
Rating: 3/5

This is the second book in the Shades of London series. You can read my review of the first one here:
The Name of the Star.

As this is a book in a series, this review might contain spoilers.

Fresh from defeating the modern Jack the Ripper, Rory is back in London. There's been a sudden change in her, something unexplainable, something both exciting and scary, which she has to figure out if she's going to help out with the next mystery.

This book was pretty good, though not as good as the first one. I felt like the mystery was a bit jumbled and the resolution very quick. There's a lot of other stuff going on next to the mystery, and that takes up a lot of space. A bit too much, if you ask me. I felt like the mystery aspect of this was done half-heartedly, and it's sad because it had to much potential!

I still find the characters interesting and the whole paranormal aspect really fascinating. I am, however, left a little unsure as to where this will go next, because I have a feeling and I'm not sure I love it.

I will read the next book in this though, because Johnson can clearly write, and the ending of this was really good. It's all that stuff in the middle that gets in the way, but we'll see!

I would recommend this series if you enjoy paranormal books and ghosts.
