People, my blogging has been shamefully lax of late.
I blame computer problems, having a ton of kids, and that I'm trying to FINALLY write a book that's been clawing to get out of my brain for quite a while...In short, it has been typical chaos at my house.
(Case in point: while I wrote these two sentences, my three year old emptied all my Christmas wrapping paper from the storage box and is happily wrapping herself in purple ribbon. Let's see how long the belated little elf can entertain herself!)

she thought possible: she’s become a human terminus, with the power to eliminate
ghosts on contact. She soon finds out that the Shades—the city’s secret
ghost-fighting police—are responsible for her return. The Ripper may be gone,
but now there is a string of new inexplicable deaths threatening London. Rory
has evidence that the deaths are no coincidence. Something much more sinister is
going on, and now she must convince the squad to listen to her before it’s too
In this follow-up to the Edgar Award-nominated THE NAME OF THE
STAR, Maureen Johnson adds another layer of spectacularly gruesome details to
the streets of London that will keep you on the edge of your seat until the very
