What is it about? (Summary from GoodReads)
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.
I quite enjoyed book one, and since Schwab is one of my favourite authors, I really wanted to pick this one up!
Again I really enjoyed the humour in this book! Also the writing style is so good! I just flew through this book, I think I read it in 3 hours!
The friendship between Cass and Jacob might be my favourite thing about this whole series! In my review for the first book I said there was not much character development, but I think in this book there is definitely some development!
(yes I’m currently reading my review for book one..)
In my review for book one I said that this was so different from her other work, because it is middle grade. And also that the introduction was quite long. I didn’t have that problem this time, since I knew what to expect, and this one doesn’t really have a huge introduction since it is a sequel. So compared to the first book, I feel like there is a bit more action in this one!
I also said that Cass felt older (14) than she is supposed to be (12), which I still agree with. Since she makes decisions that feel a bit above her age?!
Last thing I want to compare, is that it felt like the archived, which it still does! But, you know, the concept is so good!
I really enjoyed this book, and can’t wait to see where the next book will take place, and what adventure it will bring!
