Summary, etc.:
Now in Paris with her parents who are filming their TV show about the world's haunted cities, Cassidy Blake (who can see ghosts) and her friend Jacob (who is a ghost) are alert for trouble, especially when the filming takes them into the underground Catacombs, the empire of the dead, where Cassidy accidentally awakens a powerful poltergeist spirit--one whose mystery she must solve before his power in unleashed on the whole city.

    There's a lot of darkness lurking in the City of Light, as Cass discovers on her parents' latest ghost-hunting assignment. Their reality-TV gig takes the family (and Cass' BFF Jacob, a ghost) to several iconic Paris locations, but their first stop at the catacombs becomes the epicenter of the story's action. There, Cass is besieged by restless spirits trying to pull her into the Veil, a sort of paranormal purgatory, and when they succeed, the ghost of a young boy follows Cass back into the living world. Soon, the increasingly dangerous accidents dogging Cass' steps reveal that she's dealing with a poltergeist, and the only way to send this disaster-causing boy on is to discover what happened to him in life. Schwab's sequel to City of Ghosts (2018) is another hair-raising romp for middle-graders ready to dip their toes into horror. Mystery and Paris history intermingle nicely, and a subplot involving Jacob's past intensifies readers' investment in the characters. Readers can jump straight into the series here, but have book one at the ready.HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: That buzz you're feeling might be from spirit energy, or it's from the excitement the publisher is drumming up with a national author tour and a Halloween campaign.
