The Name of the Star (Shades of London #1) - Maureen Johnson 2.5 - 3 stars. An interesting read, particularly the Jack the Ripper murder/mystery bits, but alas, "Name of the Star" wasn't nearly as gripping or suspenseful as I'd hoped it would be. Maybe that's because the first 80-90% of it felt like a long prologue or introduction to a bigger & better story. I wasn't bored, per se; I just wasn't fully engaged until the last few chapters. The sequel to "Star" releases in 2013. I'm curious enough to add it to my TBR pile. Hopefully it will pack a bigger punch than its predecessor.
