Book Haul: A Little Bit Dystopian



Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga’s Reviews. I get to show off the books I’ve gotten recently. These books may not be dystopian, but they have some end-of-the-world vibes.

Review: City Of Ghosts by Victoria Schwab


City Of Ghosts by Victoria Schwab



Series: City of Ghosts #1
Genre: Middlegrade fantasy / horror
Pages: 285
Content warning: Death, monsters, violence

Cassidy Blake's parents are The Inspectres, 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 Inspectres 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.
