The Haunting of Alaizabel Cray by Chris Wooding
This is a definite action mystery with just enough of a creepy romance feeling to keep you in suspense until the very last page. It is set in London during a time when the world seems to be falling apart. The world has been overrun by evil monsters, where people are afraid to even step outside their doors at night. And the only things to protect them are wych-hunters. This story is about one such wych-hunter, Thaniel Fox. While out hunting one night he comes across a wild and somewhat crazy beautiful girl. He takes her home, and upon her waking finds that she seems to be possessed by some evil being that seems to attract every evil and horror of the city. Feeling the draw to protect her, he and his hunting partner decide to do everything possible to keep her safe from the evil threatening her and the rest of humanity.
I recommend this book to anyone who has a love for the weird and strange. It has nonstop suspense and action that anyone would love.
