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.

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.

City Of Ghosts – Victoria Schwab ★★★★★

Blurb; Cassidy Blake’s parents are The Inspecters, a (somewhat inept) ghost-hunting team. But Cass herself can REALLY see ghosts. In fact, her best friend, Jacob, just happens to be one.

When The Inspecters head to ultra-haunted Edinburgh, Scotland, for their new TV show, Cass—and Jacob—come along. In Scotland, Cass is surrounded by ghosts, not all of them friendly. Then she meets Lara, a girl who can also see the dead. But Lara tells Cassidy that as an In-betweener, their job is to send ghosts permanently beyond the Veil. Cass isn’t sure about her new mission, but she does know the sinister Red Raven haunting the city doesn’t belong in her world. Cassidy’s powers will draw her into an epic fight that stretches through the worlds of the living and the dead, in order to save herself.

My Review; THIS WAS BRILLIANT! I bought it ages ago as the cover is gorgeous and caught my eye. I’m surprised at how much I loved it and enjoyed it. I can honestly say I’ve not read anything similar to this before. It’s was an easy read for me and I devoured it in a day but I just loved it. It’s a unique story.

I love Cassidy’s character the fact she has a ghost as her bestfriend and can see ghosts (the inbetween). She thinks she’s the only one who can do what she does but then she meets Lara and she is just what she needs. She understands Cassidy and is the same as her.

Things turn tense when Cassidy gets her life stolen off her by an evil ghost then it’s a race against time to get her life back and she has consequences to face afterwards. Lara teaches her about what she can see and do… Her purpose.

I’m currently reading book two (tunnel of bones) and it’s just as good. Highly recommend. A light read, but a brilliant one. Five stars from me.
