After City of Ghosts I pre-ordered Tunnel of Bones as soon as it came available. I love the concept of and interaction between Cassidy and her ghost friend Jacob so I really wanted to find out about their next adventure.
The story is written in a very pleasant style and I love the way we know Cassidy her thoughts, but so does Jacob. Sometimes it feels like it's a secret conversation between them and us, the readers. It's also fun to get to know more about a city and it's (ghost)stories while reading this series. I have been to Paris and a few of the places she mentions in this book. Would I go back now, it definitely would be a different experience :)
Definitely recommend it!
Reading it in physical format was easier because I could use the map to find where events were taking place. It was so easy to slip back into those characters and the world again so I can't wait for the next installment.
I really do like this MR series, and this second titles in the series has Cassidy in Paris with her parents and accidentally disturbing a poltergeist. Mayhem ensues, and she's got figure out how to help the spirit before it destroys the city. And her with it.
This is a great follow-up to the first book, and I really look forward to the continuation of this series. It's excellent that there are different places in each title, and some historical facts thrown in. Historical ghosts are often SO MUCH COOLER than any made up, and Schwab does a great job incorporating those old tales into her new ones. I love to recommend the first book to people, and this one will join the ranks!
