Review : The Madness Underneath (The Shades of london #2) by Maureen Johnson

“A new threat haunts the streets of London. …Rory Deveaux has changed in ways she never could have imagined since moving to London and beginning a new life at boarding school. As if her newfound ability to see ghosts hadn’t complicated her life enough, Rory’s recent brush with the Jack the Ripper copycat has left her with an even more unusual and intense power. Now, a new string of inexplicable deaths is threatening London, and Rory has evidence that they are no coincidence. Something sinister is going on, and it is up to her to convince the city’s secret ghost-policing squad to listen before it’s too late.”

That ending……. oh god, that was so unexpected, i don’t even know what to say! it’s shocking and it will change the story in so many ways, can’t wait for the next one!
Once again, i have to say that Johnson’s writing is wonderful. She has a way of creating relatable characters. Rory is amazing. She is even funny in the worst situations. I love how smart she is. She is also full of flaws and that makes her more human than other main characters i have read about. I adore reading from her POV.
The story in this one was less interesting than the first one. i think this book was more of a inbetween story. it was getting us ready for the third one. The first part was not much of a story, nothing was really happening. I kinda didn’t really care because Rory is just so fun to follow. I would say the story really picks up at the end, this is why i’m very excited for book 3!
I really did enjoy this book even with the lack of story. I still think this series is entertaining and so fun to read! i highly recommend it.
