    Whitechapel, November 1888: Jack the Ripper is hard at work. He's safe behind locked doors in a one-room hovel with his unfortunate victim, Mary Kelly. With no need to hurry for once, he takes his time gleefully eviscerating the young woman. He doesn't know that a 15-year-old boy is cowering under Mary's bed....

    What would have made Savage better?

    There were too many side stories for my liking. My mind started to wander after a while.


    Has Savage turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    I wanted to like this book and the way it started out was very promising. However, the chase for the ripper was too meandering and tedious. I ended up skipping chapters just so I could see how it ended, only to find that I didn't care anymore.

    In 1878, two young stage magicians clash in the dark during the course of a fraudulent séance. From this moment on, their lives become webs of deceit and revelation as they vie to outwit and expose each other. In the course of pursuing each other's ruin, they will deploy all the deception their magician's craft can command. Their rivalry will take them to the peaks of their careers, but with terrible consequences.

    Story
    (10014)

    This is a tale of sorrow, a tale of survival, a tale of one man's search for meaning in his universe, and how that search, and the indomitable will that drove it, gave birth to a legend.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I absolutely loved this book. I found the characters so interesting and engaging. I couldn't wait to find out what happened along the way. The book is well read and just left me with such a fulfilled feeling when it was done.

    Rebekkah Barrow never forgot the attention her grandmother Maylene bestowed upon the dead of Claysville, the small town where Bek spent her adolescence. There wasn't a funeral that Maylene didn't attend, and at each one Rebekkah watched as Maylene performed the same unusual ritual: She took three sips from a silver flask and spoke the words "Sleep well, and stay where I put you." Now Maylene is dead, and Bek must go back to the place she left a decade earlier. She soon discovers that Claysville is not just the sleepy town she remembers....

    "Decent Story, Terrible Reader"
    Overall

    I actually liked this story overall and would probably have enjoyed it a lot more if there had been a better narrator. Emma Galvin pretty much reads the entire story in a dull monotone voice that at times had my thoughts drifting elsewhere. It was hard to listen to her for extended periods of time since her voice just made me sleepy. A decent story overall though.
