And I obviously know that authors have no control over their covers, but I wish the cat was replaced with Jacob. We work closely with publishers and authors to ensure that we offer the best books on the market for your child. But when Cass meets a girl who shares her "gift " , she realizes how much she still has to learn about the Veil — and herself. Es herrscht eine gute Spannung von Beginn an, da man als Leser herausfinden möchte, warum ausgerechnet die Leichen wie auf Notenlinien hinterlassen worden sind. It has a lot of harry potter references which can you find just okay like me or can really annoy you.

Cassidy's parents just so happen to be a well-known author duo who have written a book series that's like a mash-up of history and ghost stories.He went on to graduate from Southbank University in London with a 2:1 in politics and since then he has had various jobs in retail, cinema, and telesales and has kept a keen, almost obsessive, interest in current affairs. So scary and Rossel is so brave to pursue the murderer despite the likely consequences for him and those he cares for. I know this is supposed to be darker, as far as content, but it still could have had more humorous banter, or something to keep me engaged. 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.

Since it is a middle-grade novel and tuned for a younger audience than ADSOM and Vicious it comes without saying that it is less suspenseful and intricate than her YA or adult novels. I saw someone compare this novel to “Strangers Things meets Ghost Hunters” and I 100% agree with this sentiment.

Ich habe selber gemerkt, dass ich einzelne Stellen zwei Mal lesen musste, weil ich zum Beispiel ein Schlüsseldetail überlesen habe. Don't be deterred by the wooden beginning, which for some could be a deal breaker in those first pages of deciding whether the story is worth sticking with, as you're unlikely to be grabbed instantly.

Despite me being annoyed by all the Harry Potter references (they were literally everywhere, please stop), this was a solid middle grade book. Da mir das Setting bei „Black Sun“ sehr gefallen hat, habe ich mich auf „Der kalte Glanz der Newa“ sehr gefreut! I loved the idea of this semi-tangible thing that Cassidy could cast aside to enter the world of spirits, and you can tell that the entire dynamic of the Veil is one that Victoria has thought out in complexity, from the consistent rules it has. Registered office address: Unit 34 Vulcan House Business Centre, Vulcan Road, Leicester, Leicestershire, LE5 3EF.I would reccomend if ofc too younger readers and for Ve schwab fans who want too read more of her different works , just dont go in expecting something like her adult books. I’m absolutely in love with Jacob and Cassidy, their like partners in crime you want to team up with and go on a ghost hunt. I have read quite a few books set in this particular period, and can honestly say that Creed does bring something new and fresh to this genre of crime fiction.

Jacob lives in the realm of the living with Cassidy, but Cassidy now can open and enter the veil, and see the ghosts that are stuck within it.I absolutely adored the world Victoria created here, and thought the Veil itself was a delightful touch. I don’t know whether that has to do with the fact that this is a middle grade story or that I didn’t feel the excitement and thrill I’ve come to expect of Schwab’s stories.
