Sojourn by Jana Oliver

London, September 1888. An aged Queen Victoria rules. The threat of anarchy hovers in the air. A new kind of evil lurks in the back alleys of Whitechapel. Enter Jacynda Lassiter, a Time Rover on a mission—find an overdue ‘tourist’ and return him to 2057 before he changes history.

Victorian London is a dangerous place for the unwary. Mysterious shape-shifters haunt the streets, making friend and foe indistinguishable. When a fellow Time Rover is murdered, Jacynda’s mission becomes personal. Can she trust the two gentlemen who come to her aid, or do they harbor their own dark secrets?
In a few days, Jack the Ripper will add to his bloody legacy. But old Jack isn’t the only threat in Whitechapel. Unless Jacynda can outwit a madman, her Victorian sojourn will rewrite history—and end at the point of a blade.
from Goodreads

I bought this book after reading  Forsaken and Forbidden from The Demon Trapper Series for the  Dewey's Read-a-Thon October 2011. This book is nothing like them. This is a Sci-fi historical mystery book and I still enjoyed it very much. So much that I think I will buy the next book in the series very soon.

I read this book as part of the Winter's Respite Read-a-Thon.hosted by Michelle at The True Book Addict.

Update 28/1-2012: Less than 24 hours after writing above post I have now bought both the second and third book in the Time Rovers series.

It also qualifies for: 
100 books in a year Reading Challenge 2012, 
Goodreads 2012 Reading Challenge, 
2012 Ebook Challenge,
