About this deal

Da mir das Setting bei „Black Sun“ sehr gefallen hat, habe ich mich auf „Der kalte Glanz der Newa“ sehr gefreut! So, all in all I’m really happy I’ve read this story and can’t wait to read the next books in this series. His inquiries take him from Leningrad to Moscow and involve victims of the Soviet gulags to the highest offices in the land.

Mary King's Close" sounded too fascinating to pass on it and since I’m a little history geek Edinburgh sounds like the perfect place to be. In a society riven with fear and suspicion, where a single slip of the tongue can lead to a lengthy sojourn in a Siberian gulag, or an instant death sentence, Creed captures this atmosphere perfectly throughout.

At the beginning I was bored then I was excited and these feelings were changing over and over again.

At Books2Door, we believe that reading is a fundamental skill that every child should have to help improve their vocabulary, grammar, and critical thinking skills. I alwasy make stupid excuses to re-read my favourite books, but here I actually had one that could be counted as a real reason to re-read a book, not just because I loved it. And when her parents host a TV show about the wolrd most haunted places, they end up going to Edinburgh.I don’t know whether that has to do with the fact that this is a middle grade story or that I didn’t feel the excitement and thrill I’ve come to expect of Schwab’s stories. She loves fairy tales, and folklore, and stories that make her wonder if the world is really as it seems.

The last thing I want to touch on is Cassidy’s best friend, Jacob—a little ghost boy who saved her life, and in the process, became tangled up in her everyday world.I know this is supposed to be darker, as far as content, but it still could have had more humorous banter, or something to keep me engaged. Hooking you from the very first page, it has just the right amount of spookiness, mystery and action, keeping you on the edge of your seat without getting gory.
