From #1 NYT bestselling author Victoria Schwab comes a sweeping, spooky, evocative adventure, perfect for fans of "Stranger Things" and Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children. Ever since Cass almost drowned (okay, she did drown, but she doesn't like to think about it), she can pull back the Veil that separates the living from the dead . . . and enter the world of spirits.

Here, graveyards, castles, and secret passageways teem with restless phantoms. And when Cass meets a girl who shares her "gift," she realizes how much she still has to learn about the Veil -- and herself. And she'll have to learn fast.

This is a very sweet story and it does indeed remind me of Ghost Whisperer! But yeah, I love Cassidy! And I can't wait to read what's next! ( )

City of Ghosts
(Cassidy Blake #1)
by Victoria Schwab
Wow, I didn't know this was a middle grade book when I ordered it from the library but I would say it's a book for middle grade and up! I enjoyed it so much! I am a senior and I found it thrilling, entertaining, suspense sprinkled throughout, and bits of humor. It's also about family and friendship.
Cassidy is our gal of the story. She drowns then comes back, saved by Jacob who is a ghost. Since her accident, she can see and hear ghost. She can also go between, a place that shows ghosts in their time as they were about to die. She has to be careful there! Fortunately she has her best friend Jacob who is not just a friend but her protector.
Cassidy is looking forward to a long summer at the beach cabin where there isn't any ghosts. But her parents have a surprise, their ghost novels are picked up by a network and they will be travelling to haunted places to film. What happens when she goes to the city of ghosts in Scotland she will remember forever! Very thrilling!
Very enjoyable entertainment and just the right trepidation was added for a great creepy factor. ( )

This is a fun story, and it left me with questions about where the series will go from here. (Good questions, mind you. No cliffhangers here.) I'm curious to see what troubles Cassidy gets herself into next time, and where her ghost hunting parents will take the family next. I want to know more about Jacob. I really like the character of Lara, and want to see if she shows up again.

Though this is a middle grade book, it could be enjoyed by older readers also. There is a little bit of explanation of words—usually in reference to the difference between American and British English—but not so much that it got on my nerves. Also, most of that happened toward the start of the story, when the family was getting settled in Edinburgh. Once the action started picking up, I didn't notice many (if any) breaks to explain the language.

Side note: though there is a cat on the cover, Grim the cat doesn't feature much in the book. Cassidy's sidekick is the ghost Jacob, not the family cat. ( )

I'm going to admit first thing that City of Ghosts is the first Victoria Schwab book I've read. Ok....Ok....I can hear the snorts of derision and feel the side-eye glances.... I do have several of her novels on my bookshelves. My TBR pile is ponderous (literally THOUSANDS of books) and I hate cliff-hanger endings where I have to wait a year or more to find out what happened. So generally I wait until a series is on book 3 or 4 before I start reading. Victoria's books have been waiting patiently on my list for me to get to them..... With millions of readers and thousands of glowing reviews for her work, she hasn't missed me.

I read the book blurb for this series, and immediately broke my rule. City of Ghosts is the first book in the Cassidy Blake series. Book two won't be out until sometime in 2019. But, this YA series sounded like so much fun to read, that I jumped right in. I took my chances with cliff-hangers.....so stop snorting and side-eyeing me. I read Victoria Schwab! And loved this book!

Cassidy Blake can see dead people. While that's nothing new....she had to actually almost die to gain that power. Not only does she see dead people, her best friend is....you guessed it....a ghost. Cassidy's parents are excited that their book series has been picked up as a television series. The Inspectres will shoot episodes in haunted places around the world. First destination? Edinburgh, Scotland. Cassidy and her BFF Jacob soon meet up with an evil spirit that wants Cassidy's life force. Can she escape? Or will she really be a ghost this time?

Great story! I listened to the audio book version, narrated by Reba Buhr. She reads at a nice pace, with great inflection and acting skills. The story definitely kept my attention from beginning to end. And I can't wait for the next book! This series is YA...so there isn't any cussing or adult themes. Just an enjoyable story. Cassidy is definitely a teenager, but she's also determined to help people, even dead ones. Her friendship with Jacob is sweet.

Overall, an entertaining, slightly spooky, story. Great start to a new series. And YES -- I'm going to start reading the other books by Victoria Schwab that are now calling me from my TBR shelves. How could I not? ( )

What a spooky little ghost adventure! I didn’t expect to enjoy this as much as I did. We got ghosts, a trip through Edinburgh, some local history, and a heroine who is far braver than I was at her age.

It’s definitely a middle grades novel, but I think teens would probably enjoy the plot and a lot of the action, even if the writing style is on the simpler side. ( )
