I Hunt Killers by Barry Lyga

It has been far too long in my opinion since I have reviewed a book, so here it goes. This book is one that I had been waiting for for a while, and I finally got it on my kindle in the beginning of April. I read it and loved it.

This book is truly amazing. It makes you think, it makes you wonder, and it will creep you out. It sure creeped me out at times. This book follows Jazz, who is the son of an infamous serial killer named Billy Dent. But, Billy has been locked up for a few years. Jazz wants to live a normal life, but that’s hard since his dad has been teaching him how to kill since he was little. Now, bodies are piling up in the small town he lives in, and he’s the only one who knows how a serial killer thinks.

This book is violent. Like, really, really, really violent. There is some major gore at parts. There is also mentions of, well, serial killy stuff, like cutting people up, mentions of rape, and other stuff. I recommend for older teens. But this book is amazing, and I do think people should read it. Apparently, there’s a T.V. series being made but it doesn’t look that good since they made Jazz a girl (which I find weird). But this book is amazing!

Ripper by Stefan Petrucha

This book was really fantastic. It has so many twists and turns and surprises. I read it in only a few days. The story plot is interesting, the characters are great, and the mystery is the best.

This book takes place a few years after the Jack the Ripper killings in White Chapel. Except, this book takes place in New York City. The main characters are Carver Young, Delia, Finn, Mr.Hawking, and Jack the Ripper. Carver just wants to find his dad and gets adopted from an orphanage by retired detective Mr.Hawking and is allowed to do so. Delia wants to be a reporter and gets adopted by two people at the Times and gets to work there. Finn was a bully at the orphanage and wants to stay top dog and be with his gang, but it doesn’t work out that way when he gets adopted by the district attorney and his wife so they look good. Together they figure out who Jack the Ripper is and the mystery of Carver’s past.

This book is really good, but is violent and gory, so I would say 12+ (since this is Jack the Ripper). I highly recommend!
