    1. Reviewed by Jaglvr for TeensReadTooLIFEBLOOD is the second book in the DARKSIDE series by Tom Becker. The story picks up a few months after everything that happened in DARKSIDE. Jonathan Starling has remained in Darkside with Elias Carnegie. As with the first story in the series, the pair gets drawn into a mystery that soon turns to them trying to solve a murder. They are approached to discover who an unknown victim is. The problem is that the victim was murdered the same way as another infamous [...]


    2. Jonathan Starling has been spending a lot of time in Darkside—perhaps too much. When his werewolf friend Carnegie is asked to investigate a gruesome murder, Jonathan eagerly tags along. It turns out that this new murder may be the first clue in twelve years to the murder of James Arkel, grandson of Jack the Ripper. But as Jonathan and Carnegie start investigating and figuring out how certain Darksiders are connected to the Arkel murder, someone, or something, is trying to stop them. But Jonath [...]


    3. I loved this book! I love those happy, pearly, everything-goes-great, fairies and princesses, true-love-conquers-all storiesbut sometimes you just need a good old horror! Fighting and mysteries, threat of brutal murder at the next turn of a corner, and of course never knowing who is a friend and who is actually the great grandchild of Jack the Ripper and is out for your throatGosh I love this book! I cannot wait for the next book. Totally brilliant on the part of the author, I thank him very muc [...]


    4. This is one of the best books I've ever read. It kept me waiting. It never jumped to far ahead in a chapter, it keeps you thinking as you read. It has a great ending to all the problems to every mystery they are trying to figure out. Which is like 5 at once. So you really have to be able to follow whats going on cause most chapters switch from scene to scene.


    5. --Full, non-spoiler review courtesy at Book & Movie Dimension a Blog--It was on a day a while ago when headed to the public library to venture to discover some good/amazing book finds that found Darkside by Tom Becker. The book cover was so exquisite and, oh, the premise just as mouth-watering. When headed home soon took of at at an earnest pace to make progress with it. The hours of entertainment that went by were many. It was at that moment that realized it was one of those novels , a read [...]


    6. "The torrent of blood came gushing down without warning, hitting Jonathan Starling before he could react. The last thing he had seen was the playing card of the Jack of knives grinning up at him from the table, and then a thick red waterfall engulfed him."Tom Beckers Lifeblood hooked me with its unique detail, and one of a kind plot. With each page that was turned my mind craved from more! My heart was racing and prickly fingers tap danced up and down my spine.Darkside and Lightside might be con [...]


    7. Darum geht es:Nachdem Jonathan und sein Vater nur knapp Vendettas Fängen entkommen sind, hat Jonathan beschlossen, vorerst in Darkside bei Carnegie – seines Zeichens Detektiv und Wermensch – zu bleiben. Er erhofft sich, dort etwas über den Verbleib seiner Mutter herauszufinden, die seit zwölf Jahren spurlos verschwunden ist.Doch bevor er auch nur den ersten Schritt in dieses Richtung unternehmen kann, bittet der Reporter Arthur Blake Carnegie um Hilfe. Eine grausam zugerichtete Leiche wur [...]


    8. This is the 2nd book of Tom Becker's Darkside series. If you read the first book and loved it, you will definitely love this one. If you haven't read the first one, you should start with it. First off, I love the cover of this book. The hardcover version I received had a wonderfully colored dust jacket with a little window that let you peep at drawings on the book itself. The real surprise was when you removed the dust cover and found the book decorated with strange creatures all over. I immedia [...]


    9. The adventures with Jonathan and Carnegie in Lifeblood pick up from the end of Darkside. Jonathan is still in search of clues about his Mother while staying in Darkside with Carnegie. It starts really well with lots of fighting and violence which is great. I love Carnegie's character and i did NOT guess who the Ripper was at all which is brilliant just as i did not guess who Vendetta was in the first book. Tom Becker is brilliant at keeping the secrets very low key so you don't guess the twist t [...]


    10. Gazing out the carriage window, Jonathan was dizzied by the sheer scale of the borough; roads that spiralled and intersected around one another in fiendishly complicated knots, the rabbles of people that seemed to congregate on every street corner. He had no idea Darkside was so huge. It was almost as if it was alive: a grimy, infested organism filling its lungs with smoke.At that moment, he seemed to be surviving on anger alone.…an accent that tinkled like crystal.


    11. I read the first one and was intrigued. I mean an entire world hidden in London with all the less desirables? ruled by Jack the ripper and his decendants? It's dark but not too dark. Exciting and mysterious. thoroughly enjoying it so far


    12. The sequel to Darkside, Lifeblood is also a pretty good book. I found a little harder to follow than the first, just because there were so many new characters. Lifeblood is more of a mystery story than its predecesor, but it's still very good.


    13. This was a fun read. Good sequel to the first book, I'm looking forward to reading the next installment. Junior high age and up









    14. This book was brilliant, the characters colourfully written and the two worlds inhabited by the books man characters are wonderfully descriptive


    15. Fantastic read that involves; London, mystery and chase! Set in a Victorian Gothic type setting mixed with modern. Can't wait to explore the other works in this macabre series.


    16. This book was okayI liked the Ripper part and how we got to see more of Carnegie's work. But I liked the first one better.


    17. I still can't believe this is in juvenile. Not as altogether spooky as the first but more violent and more mystery. Definitely building toward a great conclusion




    18. The book was okay. But it kept taking me back to the very first one. There were so many things in this book, that just made me think it came right out of the first one. Kind of boring.
