Synopsis from GoodReads:
Trouble is haunting Cassidy Blake . . . even more than usual.
She (plus her ghost best friend, Jacob, of course) are in Paris, where Cass's parents are filming their TV show about the world's most haunted cities. Sure, it's fun eating croissants and seeing the Eiffel Tower, but there's true ghostly danger lurking beneath Paris, in the creepy underground Catacombs.
When Cass accidentally awakens a frighteningly strong spirit, she must rely on her still-growing skills as a ghosthunter -- and turn to friends both old and new to help her unravel a mystery. But time is running out, and the spirit is only growing stronger.
And if Cass fails, the force she's unleashed could haunt the city forever.
My Thoughts-Spoiler Free
I'm so glad to have read these back to back. I think I can honestly say that I liked this book better than the first but hear me out. I had the privilege of visiting Paris in 2017. It was an amazing vacation made even better by the fact that the hubs and I celebrated 20 years of marriage in the city of love.
I instantly knew the Opera House, the Louvre, Notre Dame, and the Mona Lisa painting. (it's a lot smaller than you think) and even though at the time of our visit the catacombs were closed, and after reading this, I'm okay that we didn't burrow down into the tunnels. *shudder*
Tunnel of Bones picks up right where City of Ghosts leaves off. Cass and Jacob continue their ghosts adventures in the city of Paris. Now that Cass has some experience as a ghosthunter, she has a *little* more control when the veil beckons her to the other side. Unfortunately, for Cass she unknowingly awakens a spirit who quickly becomes dangerous and seems to be following Cass all over the city, wreaking havoc on any who happen to be near her.
She must discover who this poltergeist was when he was still alive and make him remember, if she doesn't, the city of Paris will suffer forever. And to make matters worse, she's only in Paris for a few days. The clock is ticking and Cass is running out of time.
I love Cass and Jacob. I love how loyal they are to one another as spirit and human. In this book we finally get Jacob's story of how he died and it's a tear jerker. I'm looking forward to the third book next year and I hope this series will continue for a while.
