A sei mesi da quella terribile notte, in cui Anthony, Lucy e George sopravvissero in una casa infestata da fantasmi, l’agenzia di acchiappafantasmi Lockwood & Co. non ha più fatto molti progressi. L’agenzia rivale cerca sempre di mettergli i bastoni tra le ruote, senza permettettergli di portare a termine alcuna missione. Anthony non può che prendere una decisione: sfidarli nella soluzione di un caso; e chi perderà sarà costretto ad ammettere la sconfitta niente di meno che sul Times. La sfida ruoterà intorno al mistero di Mr. Saunders e della riesumazione del cadavere di un dottore vittoriano capace in passato di comunicare con i morti... “Rimarrete svegli a leggere fino a notte fonda, poi però dovrete dormire con la luce accesa. Stroud è un genio nell’inventare un mondo completamente credibile che somiglia moltissimo al nostro e che contemporaneamente è così spaventosamente diverso. Mettete Lockwood & C. nella lista dei titoli da leggere!”

”Well,” Lockwood said, “if you judge success by the number of enemies you make, that was a highly successful evening.” Did I ever mention that I love “Lockwood & Co” ? Those three are so funny and amazing and it was a pleasure to be able to dive back into their world. It felt like I never left it and Leggi tutto

Y’all wanna know a secret?? I read this book back in June and I seemed to have forgot I had to write a review for it. 😉 😉 😉 There’s something with the books in this series that starts off REALLY slow and takes me quite a while to get into, but once I’m into it, I CANNOT PUT IT DOWN. "It's hard to sa Leggi tutto
This is a reread. LOOK I'M CRYING. I AM DYING. THAT ENDING IS SO SWEET AND I JUST WANT TO CRY. The characters, the plot twist, this entire story is just so incredible, hilarious and everything I need in life. I love George, Lucy and Lockwood more than I love myself and that probably sounds really sad Leggi tutto
4 starsReview to come Still great but I didn't love it as much as the first. This one had a big of a drag in the middle. But still an awesome series for all ages!!
So this sequel finds Lockwood and Co. on the hunt for an artifact known as the bone mirror (which has powers that are speculated upon, but never fully explained): They are guided by a glowing green head in a jar: Along the way, they find themselves in a restricted library: And then sword-fighting ensue Leggi tutto
4.5 stars This was just wonderful. The action, the romance, the suspense. Agghhh I can't get enough of it! Lockwood, Lucy, and George have become my newest book BFFs. AND THAT ENDING.

4.5 re-read "Well,' Lockwood said, "if you judge success by the number of enemies you make, that was a highly successful evening.” I had high expectations for this book, having loved the first one, and thankfully The Whispering Skull didn't disappoint. Stroud builds on the previous events as well as o Leggi tutto
Ahhh that ending!! Good thing book 3 is sitting (somewhere) in my basement and March 1 is only days away. For record I totally figured it was something like what it is behind it all. A great little story, but not as good as the first. This one lacked some ambience at times that book 1 was sooo grea
