Horn Book Review

In City of Ghosts (rev. 11/18), set in Edinburgh, twelve-year-old Cassidy and her (ghost) best friend Jacob narrowly escaped being trapped in the Veil between life and death by a malevolent spirit. Now, Casss parents are filming their paranormal TV show in Paris, where Cass and Jacob are drawn into the orbit of another dangerous entity: a poltergeist. The pair must banish the creature before its mischief escalates to mayhem for the entire city. As they learn about the poltergeists human life and tragic end, Cass grows concerned that Jacobs increasing kinetic abilities and caginess about his death are indications that, like the poltergeist, he may forget his humanity and turn violent. Schwab skillfully weaves her settings atmosphere and history into the brisk adventure; the claustrophobic-feeling climactic scene set in Pariss infamous Catacombs is especially immersive. Jacob, previously mostly a source of comic relief and moral support for Cass, here takes a more central role and ultimately reveals some details of his own poignant backstory. Scary and sad moments are balanced by the supportive friendship and witty, pop-culture-reference-filled banter between Cass and Jacob. A final spooky incident will leave readers impatiently awaiting the next ghost-hunting expedition. katie bircher September/October 2019 p.99(c) Copyright 2019.
