Greatest book I’ve ever read this series is one of the best I’ve ever read as well I can’t believe how good it’s written at some in this series I’ve found my self kind of in shock and jumpy???????
It is the best ghost book!
I have long been a fan of Jonathan Stroud, having read the Bartimaeus Trilogy many years ago. Loved the Lockwood series, and am very sorry to see it end. Great characters, terrific action, super stories that keep you guessing. Would recommend this series, and the Bartimaeus books, to readers of all ages!
