#1 New York Timesbestselling author Victoria Schwab invites readers to New Orleans in this instalment of her thrillingly spooky City of Ghosts series! 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...

So glad I got to listen to the excellent audiobook version of Cassie‘s continuing ghost hunting adventures, this time in New Orleans.🔸#octoberreads2021

Cassidy and friends are in New Orleans for this last one in the series (for now?). So atmospheric and I really loved the relationships developed here. These are MG books, definately, but they deal with death and can be quite scary at times!

Cassidy Blake goes to New Orleans to learn about southern historical ghost! She finally feels she might have some control over her ghost hunting abilities until she meets super scary ghost again and it all goes upside down. I love the friendship she has in these novels with Jacob who is a ghost himself, and Lara who traveled across the world just to help! Her parents, clueless are sweet too. These are just fun MG books I love reading!

I didn't like this nearly as much as the previous 2 books. It's still a cute ghost story though. Fun fact: based on the title only, I thought this would be set in Venice. But New Orleans was fun too.

One more down and I think my last for October's #aamveschwab. I enjoyed this one more than the first 2 of the series, and as a bonus I FINISHED A SERIES! I'll give it 3.75 stars but I don't think I'd read more Cassidy Blake if they come out.

I‘d be perfectly happy if Victoria Schwab kept sending her characters to haunted places for more adventures (think of the fun they‘d have in Gettysburg!), but if the series had to end this was a nice send off.

Goals met for #OutstandingOctober and anything else is just lagniappe. Bonus: three books read for #authoramonth

Andrew65 Brilliant 👏👏👏🙌🥳🍾🥂😍👍 2mo
rockpools And as an extra bonus, I learnt a new word from your post! Had to Google lagniappe- never heard it before! 2mo
Susanita @rockpools I figured it fit, since the book is set in New Orleans 😎 2mo

Susanita @Suet624 That does sound spooky! We took a ghost tour, and my niece (tenth grade at the time) was a little freaked out. 2mo

Another cozy morning spent reading while my husband and son are out hunting.

This is book 3 in the series and I think it‘s my favorite! Cassidy, Jacob and Lara team up in New Orleans after Cassidy starts being haunted by the Emissary of Death. The New Orleans setting is perfect for this supernatural ghost story and I love the Society of the Black Cat characters who help them.

This is also my October #bookspin @TheAromaofBooks

I didn‘t enjoy the last installment of the Cassidy Blake series as much as the first two. It didn‘t have the mystery of a ghost‘s past as the central focus, which is what I loved about City of Ghosts and Tunnel of Bones. However, it was a very satisfying ending to a unique series.

I should have saved this for Halloween. Spooky, fun, & an atmospheric setting in New Orleans. I enjoyed this third instalment in the Cassidy Blake series. This time, the threats & dangers are greater than before but nothing too scary for middle grade audience. 👍

BooknerdsLife Love this one! Not as spooky as the second book but still a great wrap up of a series 😊 6mo

Third book in the Cassidy Blake series.

This time, Ghost hunting in New Orleans - to be honest, after book 1 was set in Edinburgh and book 2 in Paris, I thought book 3 would be set in Prague. Yes, I didn't bother to read the blurb.

Cassidy‘s New Orleans adventure was just as much fun (and as haunted) as her previous two trips. She and Jacob attend a seance, check out some hotels and restaurants with tragic histories, and of course run into some trouble connected to the veil.

I got the Owl Crate for this one, just to see what it was like, and it came with these trading cards of the characters (❤️🐈‍⬛ Grimm!) and a mirror of course!

Fun spooky MG books. 👍

This middle grade series is the perfect amount of spooky with a brave and interesting main character. The pacing is spot on - they are entertaining reads for all ages. This third book in the series takes place in New Orleans. Having just visited for the first time in January, Schwab‘s descriptions took me right back to this fascinating city. Highly recommend!

It has been a while since I picked up a middle grades read, but I am glad that I invested in the Cassidy Blake books this week. I will definitely be reccommending these to some middle graders in my life. A kind of paranormal Nancy Drew.

thegirlwiththelibrarybag Ooh - a paranormal Nancy Drewe does appeal! Have you read any of her other books? 7mo
WriterAtHeart @thegirlwiththelibrarybag - I have read a number of her adult fantasy books, but this was the first book I have read by her for younger people. 7mo

The third and last book with Cassidy and her friends. And yes, it's a great and lovely ending. Schwab uses the same scheme here as she did in the other two books, and it works perfectly fine. She wrote a good ending with a catching story beforehead. Touching, funny, scary - everything we loved about the other books are to be found here as well.

5 🌟A great read! Fantastic setting. Reading about New Orleans was fun, and spooky! This book had some of the creepiest and most haunting moments in the entire series. I loved seeing Lara again, and getting more of Jacob and Cassidy‘s friendship. But the stakes were so high that I was so nervous for Jacob. I loved this book, and I‘m satisfied if this is the end of the series, but I would absolutely read more stories set in this world! #middlegrade

I fall into the story and always forget Cassidy is so young, only twelve.

The books are always so haunting. Always have a good plot and the climax is always so fast paced and thrilling. I enjoyed this third installment.

In the next book I‘d like to get more history of “in-betweeners” or veil walkers and more information on Jacob and how he and Cassidy are connected along with where he may end up. Just what is beyond the bridge of souls?

Tarot isn‘t a crystal ball, it‘s a mirror. Tarot cards don‘t tell you what you don‘t already know. They make you think about what you do. Those cards just make you think about what you want, and what you‘re scared of. They make you face those things. But nothing can predict the future, because futures aren‘t predictable. They are full of mysteries, and chances, and the only person who decides what happens in them is you. 102

The 3rd (and last?) book in this middle grade series did not disappoint. I highly recommend The City of Ghosts series for anyone looking for a light, fun, easy read.

I love how the author takes the reader to a different country every book! This one was set in New Orleans.

Schwab‘s Cassidy Blake books are my favorite books by her, well that and The Near Witch, so when I saw this Owl Crate junior box I had to get it and it‘s so cool! All of the contents fit with the story which follows Cassidy, her parents, and her best ghost friend Jacob to New Orleans where she tries to solve who the skeleton man is that is following her and why; all while her parents visit the most haunted places for their paranormal show. 👇

Palimpsest The other fun fact is I visited New Orleans several years ago we stayed at Place d‘Armes and went on a ghost tour that featured some of the places in the book. Great continuation of this series! (edited) 8mo

🎧 I LOVE this MG series.

Fun, quick, simple read. Just what I needed to get back into this other 19 hour adult fantasy. 😫

There are multiple Harry Potter mentions again.

This time Cass, Lara & Jacob are in NOLA & the emissary of death has his eyes set on Cassidy. It will take both of her Best friends to get her out of this mess.

Fun romp through ghost land. We meet Lucas & Phillipa (members of the Society of the Black Cat).

Let us not forget that amongst all her fabulous novels for adults and YA Victoria (V.E.) Schwab has this great middle grade series. This time taking readers and heroine Cassidy Blake to New Orleans. I thought New Orleans has been center stage plenty of times, but leave it to Victoria Schwab to bring out some little-known gems about The Big Easy. #middlegrade #audio #ghosts #series

This was a cute continuation I totally would have missed without Litsy. While it feels more of a fall book I assume it got pushed back to not a come out right on top of Addie LaRue, even though this is for kids.

In the third book, Cassidy Blake and her parents are in New Orleans for the next filming location of their tv show.

I really enjoyed the scenery descriptions of New Orleans and the history about it interwoven into the story. In the third book Cassidy has to make a huge decision that doesn‘t have a good end either way she chooses. I saw recently that this is being made into a tv series and I‘m so excited for it.

This 3rd installment in the City of Ghosts series was pretty suspenseful. My heart really goes out to Cassidy‘s friend, Lara. I absolutely love this MG series and I really hope Schwab continues with it.

Palimpsest I‘m waiting for book three to come in the mail! I think this series is fantastic. When I got City of Ghosts out of the library a couple of years ago I couldn‘t put it down until I finished it. I was bored by comparison with Addie LaRue even though that book is for adults and this for kids. Just my opinion. 9mo

Cassidy Blake is back! This time she‘s with her parents in New Orleans to film the latest episode of their television show. Of course her best friend Jacob, a ghost, is with her &, unsurprisingly, trouble finds her—the worst sort of trouble & she‘s going to need all the help she can get if she is going to survive. I❤️this MG series with all its chills & thrills. It perfect for young readers looking for a spectacularly creepy read. On sale 3/2/21.

That little scream of excitement no one but me heard (hopefully) was me walking into work and finding a whole stack of ARCs from Scholastic. Sonnenblick‘s books are always fantastic & honestly, I want to know how one goes about failing show & tell. I love Schwab‘s middle grade series and find Older‘s stories to always be fun & interesting. I don‘t know anything about the bottom book but the shoes on the cover are fabulous.
