Lly I can t wait to see what s in store for the gang in the books to comeThe characters as the same as your remember Endlessly charming in their individuality and each witty as hell I was surprised the find that the character I was most excited to see wasn t Lockwood Kaz Brekker has fficially ruined me but the skull Yup The skull He s still a sassy annoying little cretin but God he was a delightThe imagery and the description were also a true delight Stroud definitely upped his game in that department Like this books shows us some f the creepiest "Ghouls And Ghosts In The "and ghosts in the It was all very well doneAll in all it was a very enjoyable read I just I just can t help but feel a tad disappointed by the initial pacing issues as well as the character growth Or lack thereof I felt like there were so many pportunities for these characters to grow and evolve as people but there really wasn t much evolution There were few changes yes but for the most part they re all pretty much the same Which is sad because considering everything they ve been through in the last couple books there s definitely room for a little believable character changeOh well who knows what surprises the next book will bring I NEED IT NOW PS Lucy REALLY needs to get The Taste of Spruce Gum over the Holly hate It s gotten reallyld 5 stars all ver againThese books are so near and dear to my heart Lucy Lockwood and George are wonderful and I love them so much They are some f the best written characters I ve come across in YA fiction and they stand with the greats Percy Jackson Harry Potter etc And She Stoops to Conquer of course the skull His sass takesn a whole new level here and I can t tell you the number Slow Getting Up: A Story of NFL Survival from the Bottom of the Pile of times I bustedut laughing at something he said XDI don t even know if I can write a full and coherent review for this book because I am currently hugging the book to my chest trying my best to Orb osmosis myself into this world Can I pretty please be a partf the Lockwood and Co team t minus 32 days until The Empty Grave and my fingers are crossed for some major Lucewood shipping please and thank you D Update 8717 So I m rereading this because book 5 comes The Dandy and Lady Penelope out next month and I am absolutely in love with Lockwood Lucy and George Holly is justkay WHAT WAS THAT ENDINGHOW AM I SUPPOSED TO MAKE IT TILL SEPTEMBERIM IN FULL FREAKOUT MODE HERE PEOPLERTC ONCE I CAN STOP SHOUTING According to the description this ne has an unexpected cliffhanger ending Well I guess it s not so unexpected now but the next book doesn t come ut till September which means a tortuous wait through the summer cries softly Oh well I have to read this NOW There s this badge Multi-Family Therapy on the coverf the books Stroud is a genius Obviously that s 100% true And to be honest The Creeping Shadow isn t even flawless perfection In fact it s the most flawed in the series It s still awesome though And very much so Because when it works it works brilliantly I really can t recommend it enough The series that is because skipping ahead to this book without reading the first National Geographic Field Guide to the Birds of North America, 7th Edition ones would be cheating yourself Obviously Anyway if Stroud were to write and release a new chapter in this series daily for the restf my life I wouldn t skip reading a single ne Save maybe if I was to sick to read Then I might have someone read the chapter to me Obviously my expectations for this installment has been massive But to address its imperfections the first third r so was slightly disappointing at times not bad just somewhat fumbling r even lacking in smoothness chapter 6 and 12 especially I m nitpicking f course but it did feel verly repetitive in places and although it s been a year since I read The Hollow Boy I certainly didn t need this amount f repetition Think good thoughts about a pussycat on say the founderf The Fittes Agency for instance really One, Two, Three Me once would have been plenty Also I had hoped for a higher flowf cases In that regard I felt a bit let down at least for a whileWhen finally the story finds itself it becomes every bit as brilliant as the previous installments so even It s really just an amazingly compelling series One f the very best A definite all time favorite For lots f reasons really The characters are amazing the story is brilliant it s witty it s exciting it s well plotted The style is awesome the alternate Britain is eery and compelling Did I say brilliant Really that s a word you cannot use to much in connection with this seriesI m well aware that I can t make anyone love the series like I do Obviously we connect with stories in different ways and at different times if ever To me. Te and remove the ‘Source’ for the legendary Brixton CannibalIt’s a tough assignment Made worse by the tensions between Lucy and the ther agents – even the skull is treating her like a jilted loverWhat will it take to reunite the team Black marketeers an informant ghost a These books keep getting excited than the last neAt first there was a bit disappointment when Lucy was working as a freelancer but eventually she joined again with the Lockwood Co and guess what The story became exciting Why does always Stroud ends the book with a major cliffhanger I have this huge crush with Lockwood and every time his name pops up I drool This is the 4th book f the series and if you haven t read the ther 3 yet close this
