Ghostly Echoes by William Ritter
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I've always really liked the Jackaby books by William Ritter. Originally, I only tried reading the first book from the library, as I am trying to be very careful with my book buying habit. When I was done with it though, I promptly went to my local bookstore and bought a copy. I was at the store the morning Beastly Bones was released and I read that one in a single sitting once I finally had a moment to just sit and enjoy it.
But I've been waiting for THIS book. This was the story I wanted to read, the story that delved into Jenny Cavanaugh's past, that finally began to pick apart her mystery and fill in pieces of the world I have been itching to know. And this book did not disappoint me. As each piece was revealed and the story moved forward, I kept grinning like a fool because it was just so much fun to get to each juicy reveal and look back and see how it's all been connected from the start of the series. The characters are solid, the pacing was smooth and when all is said and done, I LOVED this book. But of course, now I have to wait a good, long, time for the final book to be released. I'm just glad it ended the way it did. It had enough to leave the reader hanging but still feel satisfied at the way the story wrapped up. My plan is to start the series over from the beginning during the next week, that's how much I love these characters.
Rating: 9.5 Stars. You need to read this series from the beginning to truly appreciate the story developed in this book.
