This was a super-readable teen paranormal thriller ā€“ not necessarily two genres that I completely gravitate towards, but in this case it really worked for me. The London boarding school setting drew me in, and Johnson makes good use of the history of London and its geography, plus all the mythology surrounding the Jack the Ripper killings. This was legitimately quite creepy at times, without going too far and leaving me unable to sleep without a light on ā€“ a balance that I, as a total wimp, really appreciated. I was left wanting a bit more development from Rory, the protagonist ā€“ but Iā€™m hopeful that will come in future volumes, which I will certainly be reading.
