Gr 5-8–In the third installment of Schwab’s “City of Ghosts” series, 12-year-old Cassidy Blake finds herself in arguably the most haunted city in the world, New Orleans. In the previous book, Cassie and her parents visited Paris to film their ghost-hunting show, The Inspecters, where she attracted the attention of a poltergeist and ran into a mysterious and terrifying skull-faced being. When Cassie enters the Veil during a tour of New Orleans cemeteries with her parents, she discovers that the skull-creature in black was not a figment of her imagination and it has followed her across the Atlantic. Cassie and Jacob must team up again with Lara, Cassie’s in-betweener friend from Scotland, to locate a secret society that might know how to banish the monster stalking her. This is a solid entry in the series and builds upon the already established world rules. It explores the meaning of friendship while it introduces readers to new locations and their history, allowing them to tag along for a spookily exciting adventure.
VERDICT Purchase where magical realism adventures and previous books in the series are popular.
