Maureen Johnson – The Shadow Cabinet


1Maureen Johnson is a formidable presence on Twitter. Much like Jenny Lawson / The Bloggess, she makes you feel like you would be the best of friends if you knew each other in real life. Or at least that she might let you hang out with Zelda while she does authory things.

The latest book in MJ’s The Shades of London series is out today. The Shadow Cabinet is a wonderful continuation of The Name of the Star and The Madness Underneath. Through a preorder delivery fluke I got mine yesterday so I read it last night. Unlike TMU, it will not cause you to swear nor will it make you fling the book across the room. It is delightfully creepy and full of awesomeness.

It’s a 5 Star book. My only issue with it is that it makes me want to read the 4th book in the series immediately. I want the next book right now.
