Trouble is haunting Cassidy Blake . . . even more than usual.
She (plus her ghost best friend, Jacob, of course) are in Paris, where Cass’s parents are filming their TV show about the world’s most haunted cities. Sure, it’s fun eating croissants and seeing the Eiffel Tower, but there’s true ghostly danger lurking beneath Paris, in the creepy underground Catacombs.
When Cass accidentally awakens a frighteningly strong spirit, she must rely on her still-growing skills as a ghosthunter — and turn to friends both old and new to help her unravel a mystery. But time is running out, and the spirit is only growing stronger.
And if Cass fails, the force she’s unleashed could haunt the city forever.
This series is so much fun! I don’t read Middle Grade books very often but when I do I want them to be written by Victoria Schwab and I want them to be about ghosts 😜
If the title and cover don’t give it away this book takes place in Paris where the first book takes place in Scotland! Yes I should have mentioned this is book two about Cassidy Blake and her ghost best friend Jacob. Cassidy can sense and see ghosts and is able to cross the veil into their world. This book was delightfully creepy and was a little darker than the first book which I appreciated. I did read this back in October for a spooky Halloween read, and yes I am just now writing my review at the end of December 🤷🏽♀️
My only gripe with this book was that it wasn’t as twisty and turny as the first book. This one was pretty straightforward, which worked for the story but I missed all the questioning I had in the first book as to what was going to happen! The ending of this one does leave it pretty open and was honestly very creepy so I’m excited to see where book three takes Cassidy’s story.
I listened to this on audiobook and it was fantastic! If you enjoy audiobooks as much as I do then I highly suggest this one. The narrator was fantastic and easy to follow plus it makes this book a very quick read.
