Cassidy Blake trilogy by V.E. Schwab

City of Ghosts (Cassidy Blake #1)

Cassidy Blake’s parents are The Inspecters, a (somewhat inept) ghost-hunting team. But Cass herself can REALLY see ghosts. In fact, her best friend, Jacob, just happens to be one.

When The Inspecters head to ultra-haunted Edinburgh, Scotland, for their new TV show, Cass—and Jacob—come along. In Scotland, Cass is surrounded by ghosts, not all of them friendly. Then she meets Lara, a girl who can also see the dead. But Lara tells Cassidy that as an In-betweener, their job is to send ghosts permanently beyond the Veil. Cass isn’t sure about her new mission, but she does know the sinister Red Raven haunting the city doesn’t belong in her world. Cassidy’s powers will draw her into an epic fight that stretches through the worlds of the living and the dead, in order to save herself.

I read this book back in 2019. Of course I was going to read it. It is written by my future wife (I do adore Ms. Schwab) and it is set in Scotland! Heck yes. I really enjoyed this book. The story line was so unique and the adventures Cassidy went on with Jacob. There was just enough spook to make it a great book to read during the month of October but also not too much to scare the younger crowd. Since this is definitely a middle grade book. I love the Harry Potter mentions in this book as well. Also the fact that V.E. Schwab lives in Edinburgh made reading this more magical because she knew her stuff. Of course now I have a long list of places to visit when I go.

I guess I did write a review….which can be found here


Tunnel of Bones (Cassidy Blake #2)

Trouble is haunting Cassidy Blake . . . even more than usual.

She (plus her ghost best friend, Jacob, of course) are in Paris, where Cass’s parents are filming their TV show about the world’s most haunted cities. Sure, it’s fun eating croissants and seeing the Eiffel Tower, but there’s true ghostly danger lurking beneath Paris, in the creepy underground Catacombs.

When Cass accidentally awakens a frighteningly strong spirit, she must rely on her still-growing skills as a ghosthunter — and turn to friends both old and new to help her unravel a mystery. But time is running out, and the spirit is only growing stronger.

And if Cass fails, the force she’s unleashed could haunt the city forever

Found this amazing piece of art on Veebookishbooks

Once again AMAZING! I mean I don’t even know what else to say. I read this one back in 2020. Looks like I didn’t write a review on my blog for it. So this will be it….probably short since it’s been a while. I do remember the feeling of claustrophobia at times. Especially when Cassidy was down in the catacombs. It is something I want to visit in my lifetime but the thought of being underground like that freaks me out. But I will try at some point. This one almost had me in tears at one point, but I don’t want to say much and spoil it. But please just go read this spooky series!


Bridge of Souls (Cassidy Blake #3)

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…

Amazing art found on Lisly’s World

Now I love all the books, the first grab me because of the Scottish setting, the second one had freaking bones everywhere but out of them all this one holds the number one spot. It had me on the edge of my seat the whole time. It was so exciting and adventurous. It takes place in the infamous spooky and haunted New Orleans. There were some Oh Shit moments, some OMG NO moments, and some almost crying moments.


Wrap up:

I know my reviews are short. But sometimes words are hard to come to me when I am trying to express how I feel about a book. Plus it’s been a while since I’ve blogged and written reviews. I will get back into the swing of things for sure. Just be patient and give me time. But on another note, GO READ THIS SERIES! It’s a fun adventure. Until next time…..Happy Reading
