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.
