New England, 1892. Newly arrived in the US after a failed attempt at finding adventure in eastern Europe, Abigail finds a job assisting a private detective that investigates unexplained occurrences. Jackaby claims to see supernatural creatures, and is certain the recent serial killings are the work of a non-human creature.
This was a very well done book. It has been picked for several young adult reading lists and awards, though there is nothing that particularly makes this a YA-only title. The author managed to introduce characters and a world for a series while still having definition in the “case” storyline. A second ebook, “Beastly Bones” has recently been added to Freading.
