Bridge of Souls (City of Ghosts #3)Featured
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 traveling 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 colorful, grisly local legends. And the city's biggest surprise is a foe Cass never expected to face: a servant of Death itself.
This series has been very popular (I have two copies of the first book, and they're always checked out!), and it's one that I enjoy as well, even though I'm not a huge fan of creepy books. Cassidy's off beat relationship with Jacob, her travels with her parents, and the descriptions of local ghost lore all combine in a delightfully creepy way. There's definitely at least one more book needed to finish off the story, and my feelings would not be at all hurt if there were two!
Cassidy Blake is an in-betweener( someone who can cross the Veil and help confused ghosts cross over). Jacob is her best friend, who just happens to be dead. And her parents are Paranormal Inspectors with their own TV series that goes to haunted places around the world. I love Cassidy's character. She's curious, not scared to solve a paranormal mystery, and isn't afraid of ghosts she encounters. She takes chances and wants to help those who wander on the other side of the Veil.
There's fast-paced action set in New Orleans, one of the spookiest places in the United States. I loved all the backstories of the haunts that Cassidy's parents take her to. Plus, her gift of being an in-betweener is fascinating.
In this story Cassidy finds an antagonist that is out to get her. A mystery messenger of Death, who crashes a seance with a chilling messenge. A messenge that drives Cassidy to get help from her friend Lara and also to contact the elusive Society-a group of both dead and living people who help with things through the Veil.
The only thing that kind of bugged me is how oblivious her so-called Paranormal Inspecter parents are to her ability, though I kind of think her Mother does have a clue.
I really love this middle-grade paranormal series which started in Scotland, landed in Paris, and now ends in New Orleans. Readers once again follow Cassidy, Jacob, and Lara into trying to not get in the path of the very creepy Messenger of Death.
Chilling, spooky mystery set in the haunted city of New Orleans. Only now Cassidy has to avoid being taken by a messenger of Death itself. Sure to please fans of a good, engaging paranormal series.
