Bridge Of Souls – Victoria Schwab ★★★★

Blurb; Where there are ghosts, Cassidy Blake follows … unless it’s the other way around?

Cass thinks she might have this ghost-hunting thing down. After all, she and her ghost best friend, Jacob, have survived two haunted cities while travelling for her parents’ TV show.

But nothing can prepare Cass for New Orleans, which wears all of its hauntings on its sleeve. In a city of ghost tours and tombs, raucous music and all kinds of magic, Cass could get lost in all the colourful, grisly local legends. And the city’s biggest surprise is a foe Cass never expected to face: a servant of Death itself.

Cass takes on her most dangerous challenge yet…

My Review; This is book three in the Cassidy Blake series. An easy read. Devoured it. Loved the whole series but for me this is the best book yet! Is this the end for Cassidy has she gone too far now in the inbetween world? With her friends by her side surely she can overcome everything? Even death? Not without some losses surely. Or help from an unknown?

Gripping. Tense. Dark. This is a huge book in the series and I hope it isn’t the last book I want more… Please. Brilliant. Loved it all! Highly recommend. This is a series best read in order though. I love being lost into their world of supernatural, spirits and the dead. A well deserved four stars from me.

*BLOG TOUR* Deity – Matt Wesolowski ★★★★★

Blurb; Online investigative journalist Scott King investigates the death of a pop megastar, the subject of multiple accusations of sexual abuse and murder before his untimely demise in a fire … another episode of the startlingly original, award-winning Six Stories series.

When pop megastar Zach Crystal dies in a fire at his remote mansion, his mysterious demise rips open the bitter divide between those who adored his music and his endless charity work, and those who viewed him as a despicable predator, who manipulated and abused young and vulnerable girls.

Online journalist Scott King, whose ‘Six Stories’ podcasts have become an internet sensation, investigates the accusations of sexual abuse and murder that were levelled at Crystal before he died. But as Scott begins to ask questions and rakes over old graves, some startling inconsistencies emerge: Was the fire at Crystal’s remote home really an accident? Whose remains – still unidentified – were found in the ashes? Why was he never officially charged?

Dark, chillingly topical and deeply thought-provoking, Deity is both an explosive thriller and a startling look at how heroes can fall from grace and why we turn a blind eye to even the most heinous of crimes…

My Review; I absolutely love this series and author. From book one till now it is an amazing series I will always shout about and throw all the stars at. They seem to just get better and better for me.

I just love the whole lay out of each book in this series. A podcast style. Interview style. Makes easy reading. Split into six episodes. Six differing views. It always leaves the reader open to their own interpretation of what happened or what they think. Its cleverly written and absolute perfection. It is easily devourable (is that a word?) And will be over before you think. So… This time I paced myself! I did 2 episodes each day just to make the book last that little bit longer for me. But now… A long wait till the next one. 😦

This book focuses on the god of the music industry Zach Crystal. I must admit I’m still very undecided on my views over it all! Hmm. A very dark, deadly, twisted and part horror story I would say. But I loved it all! Very descriptive and I loved the tree house hide out setting and the woods too adds a bit of darkness and suspense amongst the stories and accusations.

Whose side are you on? Who do you believe? What is the truth here? An outstanding series. Another well deserved five stars. Highly recommend the whole series. My first book in my top twenty reads of 2021! Well deserved.

Tunnel Of Bones – Victoria Schwab ★★★★★

Blurb; 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.

My Review; This is book two and I would recommend you read City of Ghosts first as it refers to the previous book and sets it up and explains perfectly for you to understand book two. After reading City of Ghosts (book one), I couldn’t wait to dive into this one. Yet again it was amazing! Another easy read I enjoyed.

However, in this book it gets more dark, more riskier and more deadly. Cassidy is forced to face a poltergeist (a strong spirit), but in order to help him pass to the other side she must find out about the boy, his story and his death. This puts herself and her family at the risk of accidents, death and scary situations. Will she succeed?

With Jacob by her side and never far from her parents filming their show in paris Cassidy has to find the chance to end it all for good. Tense. Gripping. Page turner of a read. Perfect for young adult readers who love a ghost story. A well deserved five stars from me. Highly recommend.
