Book Review: The Madness Underneath by Maureen Johnson


In this sequel to The Name of the Star, Rory is still recovering from a near-fatal stabbing, but she wants to help her friends Boo, Stephen, and Callum destroy ghosts. When they land a case, Rory throws herself into it–maybe a little too much. One thing leads to another, and then she’s in over her head. Again. This time, though, she doesn’t need saving–she needs to save her friends.

With a monumental ending that will leave you screaming in frustration and anger, this was a great second book that left me wanting and waiting for the next one. The mystery, sic-fi, and touches of romance and history makes the Shades of London series spellbinding. Recommended for 11 & up.
