If you haven't read Jackaby by William Ritter then stop what you're doing and put it on hold now. The third installment of this paranormal mystery series just came out this week and I cannot wait to dive into its pages. The story revolves around two main characters, Abigail Rook and R. F. Jackaby. Ms. Rook is a plucky young woman who has traveled to New England to escape her family's expectations that she becomes a proper lady and wife. Abigail wants adventures, not manners and society and so begins her search for a job. When she applies to a strange advertisement in the paper she finds herself working for the mysterious Jackaby and soon the two are caught up in a bewildering case involving a serial murderer. With Abigail's keen eye for ordinary details and Jackaby's background in the unexplained the two become a great team in the face of a dangerous monster. This book has been touted as a “Sherlock Holmes meets Doctor Who, and Buffy the Vampire Slayer” and I cannot imagine a more compelling description to a story than that. The second book in the series, Beastly Bones, takes Abigail and Jackaby out of the city and into the country to uncover a mystery surrounding missing bones at the site of a dinosaur dig. Only the bones might not belong to a dinosaur after all, and who, or what, is attacking everyone in the valley? In this third installment, Ghostly Echoes, Jackaby and Abigail are tasked with helping a young ghost solve the mystery surrounding her own death and the mysterious disappearance of her fiance on the day she died.
If you love fantasy, mystery, and/or historical fiction then I highly recommend this series to you. I've also heard they are great on audiobook! Check out the links below to reserve yourself a copy today.
