I love just about everything Maureen Johnson has written her characters are great and I love her stories. Her series tend to be quite different from each other but they are all good in their own right. Maureen Johnson is not only a great writer but she is also amazing on Twitter I highly recommend following her. ( )

If it's possible I think I liked this The Madness Underneath by Maureen Johnson better than the The Name of the Star! I decided that I wanted to finish this series before moving on with the Truly Devious series and I'm really happy with my decision!

Johnson really expands on the possibilities of the first book and then layers in more mysteries. I didn't think that was even possible! She takes the things that we learned in The Name of the Star and then gives us more details to realize the full potential of what's happening. I really liked that Rory spent most of the book learning more about the history of the sight and more about what that will mean in her day to day life.

In The Name of the Star Rory's just learning about what has happened to her and how a very select group of people use that ability. In The Madness Underneath she's learning a bit more about what this actually means and even goes into how this might affect the rest of her life. I think Rory's character developed pretty nicely due to the reflection and knowledge she gains in this book.

I actually really missed a lot of the secondary characters from Wexford. Jazza, Jerome, Alister, and even Charlotte only received maybe 20 pages or so. I do understand that Rory's life has grown past that stage. Perhaps we're meant to feel that as I'm sure Rory is too. I'm hoping they'll make more of an appearance in The Shadow Cabinet.

I'm beginning to learn that Maureen Johnson is the queen of cliffhanger endings. I immediately wanted to go find my copy of the last book and just dive right in. I know myself better than that though. It is not worth risking burn out so I am going to force myself to read a book or two between them. She has tempted me though! ( )

First of all, this is the middle book in a trilogy. The author does enough to let the reader know what happens in the first book. Rory is in Bristol with her parents and healing from a knife wound given her by the new Ripper. She is seeing a therapist but having some trouble because she can't tell her the real story of what happened in London. Besides signing the Official Secrets Acts, she has real reason to fear that telling her story will cause her to be committed to a psychiatric facility. After all, being attacked by a ghost is not something that is easily believable.

Rory misses her friends at Wexford and especially misses Stephen, Callum and Boo who worked with her as a member of the Shade Squad whose job was to eliminate troublesome ghosts. Since moving to Bristol, she has lost all contact with them. She has also developed a startling new power. She is a living terminus; touching a ghost causes them to disappear.

Meanwhile, things aren't going well for the tean in London. As a result of their encounter with the Ripper, all three of the terminus that allowed them to remove evil ghosts have been lost or broken. The team is in danger of being disbanded leaving all three of them jobless.

Things are manipulated to get Rory back to London and Wexford and potentially save the team. Returning to London and school has problems for Rory. She is so far behind in her schoolwork and exams are so close that she doesn't have a hope of catching up and passing her exams. And she is more interested in a new mystery in which a nearby pub owner was supposedly bludgeoned to death by one of his employees. Some research tells her that the school and the are were built over a former facility where those with mental illnesses were warehoused. She fears that the battle with the Ripper has opened up a crack that is freeing some of those patients now as ghosts.

Rory is also still having issues regarding the battle too. When the head girl Charlotte raves over the therapist she is seeing, Rory decides to see her too. Jane Quaint is a mysterious character who does seem to have helped Charlotte and who helps Rory too after their first session. But Jane has a hidden agenda that runs counter to the work of the team. Jane wants to isolate Rory from her friends and family in order to fulfill Jane's agenda.

Rescue by the team leads to heartbreaking consequences and also leads to a cliffhanger ending. ( )
