REVIEW: The Demonhuntress: 1888 The Year of the Ripper

Book Title: The Demonhuntress: 1888 The Year of the Ripper

Book Description: “The Demonhuntress: 1888 - The Year of the Ripper” is a period piece that takes us to late 19th century London. The primary character is a young woman named Faustina Strauss. Faustina is 19 years old and she is ready to set the world on fire. In an age when women are expected to be refining their skills around the house, Faustina is attending medical school. She is excelling in her class work and has taken an interest in the practical application of her studies. Faustina wants to use what she’s learned about medicine to go into the field we know as forensic science. She wants to help catch Jack the Ripper. Faustina has enough information to do a decent psychological profile on what she believes motivates this killer. She knows their tactics. She knows the area most victims are taken from. Does she know if her plan will work?

Historical fiction has always held a special place in my heart. I think it’s because dad always explained key moments in history in that style. To me it made more sense that way. Otherwise it’s just memorizing and regurgitating a bunch of facts from a history book.

Mr. Linnaeus was an army of one for this book. He did the writing, artwork, lettering, and editing. That’s a lot of passion being put into a story.

He masterfully shows us what a remarkable woman Faustina truly is. She’s smart. Her observations and thought processes are decades ahead of her time. She’s strong. She’s fearless. She’s everything women 135 years later will want to be.

The artwork sets the tone for the story. It gives us the illusion of being in the 19th century by matching the artistic styles of the time. I particularly liked the devices Faustina came up with when she went hunting.

I grew up loving all things geek. I started reading and collecting comics when I was 8. My personal collection has roughly 8,000 books in it. When I’m not doing something geek-related I love spending time with my amazing wife and kids, gaming, and working on cross stitch projects.
