When Rory moves to London she expects to find fun and maybe a little romance, but what she gets is so much more. The first day she arrives marks the first Jack the Ripper-like killings that soon go crazy around London -- every little detail exactly the same. And what if she is the only person that can stop the killings? I found this book to be very fun and fast-paced, however if you scare easily I would not read it. It is very gruesome in parts (especially in describing the murders, and the mutilated bodies.) I personally found The Name of the Star to be fascinating and fun, thought I didn’t like Roy’s character all that much.
