Summary From Goodreads:
Seventeen-year-old Audrey Rose Wadsworth was born a lord’s daughter, with a life of wealth and privilege stretched out before her. But between the social teas and silk dress fittings, she leads a forbidden secret life.
Against her stern father’s wishes and society’s expectations, Audrey often slips away to her uncle’s laboratory to study the gruesome practice of forensic medicine. When her work on a string of savagely killed corpses drags Audrey into the investigation of a serial murderer, her search for answers brings her close to her own sheltered world.
“Monsters were supposed to be scary and ugly. They weren’t supposed to hide behind friendly smiles and well-trimmed hair. Goodness, twisted as it might be, was not meant to be locked away in an icy heart and anxious exterior. Grief”
So this book was honestly so so so AMAZING . I LOVE THIS BOOK, ONE OF MY FAVORITES BOOKS OF ALL TIME.
This book follows Audrey Rose,she comes from a wealthy family during the late 1880’s in London. She 17 years old and although in London there happens to be lots of expectations and rules of society and her dad, she is determined to study medicine. Against all society, she sneaks away to her Uncle’s laboratory to study forensics medicine. And then an investigation breaks out after Jack the Ripper strikes. Audrey Rose can’t help but get into the huge mess of investigation. Where she meets Thomas Cresswell, a perfect partner in crime for Audrey Rose. He’s an absolute a nerve racking character. He is honesty one of the funniest characters ever.
So I have a always been a huge history geek, and I love anything set in London. Its like a super huge weakness for me. The whole book’s atmosphere was mysterious, ad spooky. It made me want to hide under my covers. Throughout the whole story I was determined to piece it altogether but lets say I didn’t see any of it coming.
This is my new and one of my biggest OTPs now.
for Thomas Cresswell Please……..
Major swoon here here
“One taste of warm blood is never enough, Miss Wadsworth.”
Audrey Rose was a fantastic character, shes a huge feminist. And is incredible witty and stands her ground. Oh and lets not forget she incredibility stubborn.
“Roses have both petals and thorns, my dark flower. You needn’t believe something weak because it appears delicate. Show the world your bravery.”
“My heart raced. Part of me wanted to draw him into a hug and heal his wounds, and part of me wished to ferret out all his secrets and piece the puzzle of him together this instant.”
“Monsters were supposed to be scary and ugly. They weren’t supposed to hide behind friendly smiles and well-trimmed hair. Goodness, twisted as it might be, was not meant to be locked away in an icy heart and anxious exterior.”
