The story of Jack the Ripper has been one that always intrigued me. I have read all the reports and seen all the movies on it. I am not sure why I find it so interesting but when I saw the synopsis for this book I knew I had to read it. I think Kit did an amazing job, you really felt how life was in 1888 London and she kept with the real story just added her own spin to it. I didn’t mind the POV that were told by Mark, Genie and Aunt Agatha but sometimes it got me a bit confused but I was easily able to figure it out.
I love the idea of this story, Mark gets struck by lightning and travels back in time to 1888 London just when Jack the Ripper started his murder spree. Mark becomes friends with a very independent Genie but can he find his way home and help Genie not be Jacks next victim and sacrifice his way home.
Mark is a bit of a pain in the neck but I actually enjoyed him and Genie was very independent but sometimes she got on my nerves, I know she wanted to help but i don’t think she really understand the women’s situations. The chemistry between Mark and Genie was cute seeing two people from didn’t times and how different they both were, he offended her often it was rather funny. It has a few slow spots but I think that helped build the story better. I don’t want to give a lot away and would really love for you to experience this book first hand like I did, Kit Forbes did a fantastic job and she has such great details. I look forward to reading more from her.
recommend: Yes, this is a great read for YA and adults.
(Please ignore any typing issues I broke my finger and I was having a hard time writing this, I also may add a few more details when it heals plus I will come back to fix it, thank you)
