I was more than ready to start this, because I had recently finished the first title in the trilogy. Masterfully wrapping up some loose ends from the first book, while opening other threads, it is obvious that the author knows her craft. Ends on a heck of a cliffhanger, and I can't wait to read the third book to see what happens! Way to keep an audience coming back! Highly atmospheric, sometimes I could almost smell the London in the story, and the creepiness factor kept me turning pages and shivering. Loved it, can't wait for the next one!
