October-Adjacent Book Review

I should have been telling you about this book series years ago when it first came out. But maybe you're already a fan.

The Lockwood & Co series are some of the best middle grade books out there, written superbly by Jonathan Stroud. They are perfect for the season with ghosts, creepy things, humor, and suspense. These exciting adventures starring the Psychic Detective Agency are filled with great characters and incredible character arcs continuing throughout the series. Lucy, Lockwood and George are smart, have secrets, and fabulous paranormal talents. Not a series to miss, it’s one of my favorites!

From the Publisher: There is an epidemic of ghosts in Britain. Their touch brings death, and only children have the power to fight them.

Lucy Carlyle, a young psychic investigator, joins London's smallest agency, run by the charismatic Anthony Lockwood and his ever-hungry assistant George Cubbins. Together the trio must investigate some of the spookiest and deadliest spectral hauntings in the city, armed only with the tools of the ghost-hunting trade (magnesium flares, iron filings, chains and salt bombs), their courage and a thermos of tea.

Ghosts and ghouls beware!
