I don t know about everyone else but I m always a bit sceptical about bridging short storiesnovellas There are some woeful efforts out there that are nothing than changing perspective on a scene by writing he said instead of the original she said But the reason I keep reading them anyway is there are some true little gems out there Sarah Maas efforts are outstanding as they are standalone whilst furthering the world building and characterisationI digress a little but my point is that I approach them with some trepidation As can already be seen by the number of stars I ve given this the trepidation wasn t warranted in this case and this story joins the ranks of the best in novella land I can never get enough Lockwood and Co love em love em love em but this is a fun addition to the series as well In this installment Lockwood Lucy and George are hired to clear a ghost with a penchant for knife throwing from a school Whilst short it has the same delicious creepiness whilst not scaring the pants off me that s a good thing Now who s for toast

Final rating 355This was a fun and uick read set within the world of Lockwood Co It was nice getting to go on another job with the team as I absolutely love these characters There s nothing spoilery here but having knowledge of agencies and how they operate would be helpful although not entirely necessary as any crucial information is provided The mystery is set up uickly and solved neatly It does lack the overall charm and excitement that I ve come to expect from this series however I realize that s not possible in so short a tale What I think really sets this apart is how it was created with input from the fans That s such a great way to engage children in the storyIf you want to see the original posts along with the options not chosen visit the following links1 2 3 4 5 6
