The Captain’s Log – the creeping shadow (Jonathan Stroud)

Ahoy there me mateys!  Day four with book four of the Lockwood & Co. series completed.  One more to go!  Arrr!  If ye haven’t read the first book in this series, the screaming staircase, then ye might want to skip this post and go read the first book.  Worth the read.  No spoilers ahead but if ye keep reading this log then ye have been forewarned and continue at yer own peril . . .

This Captain is one happy reader.  Ye see  me hearties, yesterday I thought book three was me favourite.  Now it is definitely book four!  Mr. Stroud ups the ante with this one and while I want to rant and rave about how wonderful this book is, I can’t.  Because spoilers.  The spoilers would abound.  Book three sets up book four and so I can’t talk about this one without ruining elements of book three.  And I would never do that to me crew.  So let’s just say that the friendships, ghosts, characters, and plot rock.  The writing style is awesome.  The ending was fierce.  I want more!

I am so very glad that I accepted this challenge am looking forward to reading and finishing the last book tonight!  I will succeed!  Arrrrr!

I normally put a blurb here but the blurb is soooo very spoilery that I shall not this time.  So there!
