Shadows Fall Away by Kit Forbes
Publication Date: September 23, 2014
Publisher: Month9Books


Mark Stewart is one incident away from becoming a juvenile delinquent, and his parents have had enough. They ship Mark off to London England to stay with his eccentric aunt Agatha who is obsessed with all things Jack the Ripper. After a strange twist of luck, Mark is struck by lightning, and he wakes to find himself in 1888 Victorian London.

His interest in a string of murders Scotland Yard has yet to solve make him a likely suspect. After all, why would a young boy like Mark know so much about the murders? Could he be the ripper they’ve been searching for? Convinced the only way to get back home is to solve the murders, Mark dives headfirst into uncovering the truth.

Mark’s only distraction comes in the form of the beautiful Genie Trembly, a girl who is totally out of his league and who may have already caught the attention of the infamous ripper. To save her, he’ll endanger both their lives, and risk being trapped in the past forever.

When I was younger I watched a tv series, Jack the Ripper with Michael Caine (yes you are doing his accent aren't you!?) I was gripped, the dirty and quite frankly eerie streets of Whitechapel in London along with the scary true story of this monster was gripping viewing for my teenage self.

So when the chance to review Shadows Fall Away came up I very excitedly signed up, the story of a young man out of time makes for a really good read.

This is going to be a quick review as books like this need to be read and experienced first hand, I always feel I can never do them justice in tell you about them but the story is about Mark an American teen sent to live with his Ripper obsessed Aunt Agatha in London.

Literally struck by lightening, he wakes up to discover he isn't where he started off, in fact he isn't even in the same year or century for that matter!

He has been taken back to Victorian times, the London of Jack the Ripper's reign, finding himself meeting a relative and becoming the source of suspicion as he knows so much about the Ripper murders, Mark has no option but to try and get on with his new life in London and try and get to the bottom of the murders but he is also distracted by Genie Trembly a young girl who is the total opposite of him, he finds himself becoming extremely interested in her but so does Jack!

Will Mark be able to save her, will he be able to get home? Well I'm not telling you'll have to read this gripping tale for yourself!

Excellent young adult thriller - awarded 4 out of 5
