YES I AM NOW AVAILABLE Stalking Jack the Ripper Hunting Prince Dracula Escaping from Houdini Becoming the Dark Prince Capturing the Devil Shall we see about solving another gruesome murder, my love Thomas Cresswell, confirmed angelIf you hear sobbing around the world on September 10th, it s likely due to the fact that Capturing the Devil released and we re all having to say goodbye to Thomas Cresswell I mean, the series Yes, totally the series It s no secret that I jumped onboard the Stalking Jack the Ripper series fashionably late, but I m so glad that I decided to finally give these a try, and it was really nice to be able to binge them all back to back without waiting for years between releases My relationship with these books has been tumultuous, so you can be assured I m not blowing smoke by recommending this installment, as I have been brutally honest about my feelings toward each book as I ve read them Minor spoilers in the remainder of the review for the previous books in the series.When I began Stalking Jack the Ripper, I was sorely disappointed due to the fact that the culprit is evident from the beginning of the book Many, MANY fans encouraged me to keep going, and that the rest of the books were a huge improvement from the first, which they were right about I found myself the oddball out in finding my favorite installment and now possibly tied with this one being Escaping from Houdini, maybe because I love books set on cruise ships, traveling carnivals, and over the top drama Each book seems to give us a case that is pertinent to that installment, while also giving us some sort of twist pertaining to the overall arc of the series, and I love this Going into Capturing the Devil, I had some ideas about how things would wrap up Having read the author s notes in the afterward of each novel, I gleaned that she was writing these books based off of popular conspiracy theories sprinkled with historical facts, which makes for an engrossing read IMO, there aren t enough engaging historical mysteries in the YA realm, and the author does a fine job of creating an oppressive, haunting atmosphere in each setting, so much so that the setting is a character itself There was a nice little twist at the end it will shock some and others might say I knew it all along Either way, the beauty of this tale is that it isn t dependent on this twist, due to the fact that we have a hardcore heroine with the wickedest cane in the world, a tender romance that has been tested by time and trials, and a satisfying wrap up to give everyone the fuzzies This series is definitely one that you want to read in order, and even though I had a rocky beginning, I m glad that I invested the time and energy into knowing these characters and solving the mysteries Many thanks to the publisher for providing my review copy THEY JUST ANNOUNCED THERE WILL BE A FOURTH BOOK Me. I was born with the devil in me And he has been with me ever since Basically me throughout the entire book I m sure some people had the tiny nagging voice in the back of their head whispering What if the final book is awful What if Kerri pulls a Veronica Roth on us but not me I have an unbeatable and slightly unrealistic faith in this woman to create a story that will satisfy And I am happy to announce that it did The fourth and final NO WHYYYY book of my favorite series was amazing The characters, plot, and audio were superb and I honestly could not have asked for This final book did an amazing job of wrapping up every plotline and loose end in one beautiful and spectacular bow Even though I loved all the plotlines, I ll discuss my favorite one first Audrey Rose and Thomas I have never shipped a couple so hard and guess what guys view spoiler THEY HAD SEX AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH hide spoiler This is the fourth and last installment in the Jack the Ripper series and I did a buddy read with the awesome Shannon Reads Reels The last book had me slightly on edge in certain parts due to the sort of love triangle thing going on, so I was hoping this one would be smooth sailing with my favorite duo, Thomas and Audrey Thomas is probably one of my favorite male book characters ever, and he was his normal witty and awesome self here I loved the banter between him and Audrey At times, I did get frustrated with Audrey but it s been like that this whole series, but I really do like her There was some great mystery here and some neat reveals My favorite part was the swoon, though Oh, and there was some serious swoon I also hated Thomas s father, and hate is probably a nice word about that gent Kerri just has such wonderful writing and description that keep me captivated page by bloody page And yes, there was plenty mention of blood Overall, I adored this one so much and can t wait to read books from Maniscalco The third book isn t even out yet and I m already over here dying for book 4 Welp I officially don t have words This was an epic roller coaster of feels and I loved every single page of it.Full review to come. 4 29 19Still don t love the cover model, but, from the second half alone, this is my favorite cover for the series I hope at the end, regardless of whoever they have to take down in this book, we get to see Audrey and Thomas as married I love them both so much and I want to know they re going to be happily solving crimes together for the rest of their lives. Such a wonderful and exciting ending for Audrey Rose and Thomas I loved this conclusion and it really is just what the series needed.
