Historical Fiction Review: Resurrection by Amy Carol Reeves

Resurrection by Amy Carol Reeves (Ripper #3)

Egalley thanks to Flux Books

Synopsis from Goodreads
When she catches Edmund Wyatt following her through the streets of London, Abbie Sharp learns that every British monarch for hundreds of years has known about—and financially supported—the Conclave. Furious that the monarchy would cooperate with such a nefarious group, Abbie refuses Wyatt’s request for help in catching the person who is blackmailing Queen Victoria with this secret information. But a far greater threat emerges when the Ripper, Max, returns and brings a string of new murders with him. Abbie must choose whether to help the Queen she now despises or stop Max from succeeding at his most diabolical plan yet—the creation of a whole new Conclave aimed at usurping the British throne.

A solid series! Ghoulish, bloodthirsty and undeniably Gothic.

I remember thinking that the main heroine Abbie Sharp, is an exceptionally strong and wilful woman. It's a pleasure to read about her from the first book to the last.

Resurrection is a fiery conclusion of the chase started in the first book, where young Abbie connected on psychic level to a mysterious assassin of The Conclave, Max. After a period of quiet following the destruction of lamia and William's release, Abbie and Simon return to London to get back to their work in Whitechapel hospital.

However, yet again the city is shaken by a series of grisly murders where the victims from all ages and social backgrounds are being attacked and cannibalized. Alarmed, Simon, Abbie and William, suspect that Max is behind it all as the last remnant of The Conclave. In addition they receive a call from a representative of The Queen in the matter of The Conclave, who tries to force them to solve the murders for him.

The book is intense, violent and pretty grippy in a typical for Miss Reeves manner. I love how she doesn't soften the blows for her characters and make the consequences of their actions and decisions as real as possible. Abbie with her knives is phenomenal, and the final fight only proves that. Great historical paranormal fiction; I really enjoyed it and secretly hope for more.

Читала последнюю книгу этой серии с большим удовольствием. Всё-таки, Мисс Ривз умеет писать мрачные, напитанные напряжением и вспышками насилия готические романы.

Абби конечно замечательная главная героиня. Она не прячется за спинами Саймона и Уильяма, а первая несётся в бой, а уж как она своими ножами орудует... ну просто прелесть!

В последней книге серии, наше трио наконец-таки сталкивается лицом к лицу с талантливым психопатом, Максом, и остатками Конклава, вместе с их гулиями, которые набрасывается на людей по всему Лондону. 

Готовьтесь к похождениям по кладбищам, копанию в библиотеках, склепам, кровищи и прочим радостям столкновений с древними секретными сообществами с манией величия. Рекомендую.

In case of zombie apocalypse

Hey, guys! I feel like I should say this just in case :)
If you'd like to sponsor a fellow book addict who sometimes can't sleep at night worrying that she won't have enough books to read if internet goes down in the event of zombie apocalypse (I'm convinced it's one of the top five ways to go for human race) you can donate through Paypal to olivesandacorns at gmail dot com or buy a book through any of the links provided with my reviews which will send me a small percentage from the sale. All proceeds will go towards my enormous TBR. I will also shelter you on the remote farm in Portugal when zombie apocalypse starts provided you survive getting there. There will be books, yay?
Thank you! Love you all
