This week I read: The Screaming Staircase by Jonathan Stroud, which is the first book in the series Lockwood & Co.
When London is overrun by malevolent spirits, a talented group of young psychic detectives compete against other ghostbusting agencies in the debut of a new series that finds three intrepid colleagues investigating one of England’s most haunted houses.
I enjoyed this book so much that I have already borrowed the second book in the series, The Whispering Skull. The ghost hunting adventure was fast paced and I was hooked from the beginning. It was everything you want from a thriller with some spooky ghosts and a great deal of suspense that keeps you turning the pages right through to the end. If you’re looking for a fast paced adventure or if you enjoyed Jonathan Stroud’s Bartimaeus trilogy you should give this series a shot! You can find it in the Juvenile Fiction section at J STROUD.
