Series: Jackaby 3/4
My Rating: ★★★★☆
Disclaimer: I bought this myself, all opinions are my own.
Ghostly Echoes is William Ritter’s third instalment in the Jackaby series and I’ve just got the Dire King left until I’ve completely finished the series! I rarely read entire series so quickly anymore, mainly because I’m reading new releases but you can’t blame me.. right?
We continue on our investigative journey with Abigail Rook, our main character whose point of view we see from and Jackaby the paranormal detective. In this novel we are solving the case of Jenny who is the ghost whose house Jackaby lives in, I’m really glad that we get to see some back story to Jenny as we don’t know why she died as her case went cold, that is until some similar murders are being made.
This one was a fun read, not as fast paced like the second book but it was just as good, the characters are still continuing to be interesting and lovable but I still want to find out more about Douglas, he’s a duck who was once human but we don’t really find out more about him as the series has progressed. I feel as though this series has gotten better since the first book, I didn’t find the second one predictable like the first even though when I think about it now, it was staring me in the face and this one was slightly more obvious as I had ideas that mostly turned out correct minus one detail that I didn’t even think of.
IThere’s not much more I can say about this book as that would spoil you all so I shall leave this here, I can say that I am excited to read The Dire King though to round off this series, I hope that it’s good and that it doesn’t let me down!
