Mayhem - Sarah Pinborough

I am reading this one for the supernatural square!

Now this one is getting really creepy and scary. It's an interesting twist on the vampire story - I'm not sure if I am going to use it for supernatural or put in the vampires vs. werewolves box.

So far, I'm really enjoying the foggy, Victorian London atmosphere!


“The Jack they seek—this rabid killer of women—he is nothing. He is simply an effect. What I seek—the thing I seek—brings mayhem and wickedness in its wake, spreading it like this choking fog across the city. It runs in the water of the river, and it will destroy men’s souls.” The brutality in his voice was gone; his words were soft, and the foreign lilt was like music.
