The Haunting of Alaizabel Cray by Chris Wooding

"Set in a strange, alternative London with a darkly Gothic feel, this enormously inventive and gripping novel combines a Buffy the Vampire Slayer background with a scary Jack the Ripper plot. It has terrifically cinematic scene-setting, more tension and suspense than a Hitchcock movie, and wonderful action sequence...not to be missed." -- The Daily Telegraph

Seventeen-year-old Thaniel Fox is a wych-hunter in city that is being terrorized by gruesome creatures of the night. While tracking one such beast, Thaniel discovers Alaizabel, helpless, half-insane and posessed by a powerful spirit. In his efforts to help Alaizabel Thaniel uncovers a terrifying plan that threatens to destroy all of humanity. A horror story, a love story and an intriguing mystery all rolled into one; The Haunting of Alaizabel Cray has it all and more. For a truly creepy spine-tingler with compelling characters you can't do better than Wooding's new book.

DGS again...just finished reading this, it's S.U.M.A. (that's Super Ultra Miracle Atomic, means about 100 "very"s) whamtastic. Very nice book.
