Review: The Madness Underneath by Maureen Johnson

I read this immediately after the first book in the series. It’s darker and far more serious than The Name of the Star.

I was annoyed at how Rory handled everything especially with regards to her schoolwork. I did like the fact that there was more focus on The Shades and while I did enjoy reading about Rory and her friends in school, it was clear that she belongs with Stephen, Boo, and Callum. The subplot was also creepy and unsettling and the ending was completely unexpected.  I wonder why Maureen Johnson decided to go in this direction.

Having said that, I still enjoyed reading The Madness Underneath and I am really interested to know where this story is headed.  I did miss Alistair, though.

This was a post by Hanna, who is about to have a love affair with mulberry jam.
