Title: Tunnel of Bones (Cassidy Blake #2)
Author: Victoria Schwab
Genre: Middle Grade Fantasy/Paranormal
Publication Date: September 3rd, 2019
Synopsis: “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.”
I was excited for this to come in the mail on release day! I absolutely loved the first one as it was a great mix of spooky and adventure. It sucked you in and of course, this one did the exact same thing!
Cassidy is a fun character to read about. She is all for adventure and heading into the Veil unlike her friend Jacob, who actually is a ghost. I love the bond between them and it continues to grow. There also is a scene where we get more about his background and how he died. It was heartbreaking but I am glad that it was included since I am sure that it will be quite significant as the series goes on.
I was glad to see that characters from the first book were back again for book two. Lara is very knowledgeable about ghosts and helps Cass as much as she can. The banter between Jacob and Lara is also always fun to read about. New characters also make appearances and it wouldn’t be a paranormal book without the ghosts which there are plenty of!
The setting was intriguing and spooky. The catacombs of Paris are definitely up there on places to visit but if it is anything like Cass’s adventure, I think I will just stay home, ha. It also wouldn’t be a trip to Paris without the Eiffel Tower, which was also included on their tour of the city.
Overall, this didn’t lack at all and my expectations were easily met. I can’t wait for the third book especially since it will be set in New Orleans. If you haven’t started this series yet, I definitely would recommend it.
