Once again, Abigail Rook and her employer Jackaby have been called upon to investigate a supernatural and weird case – their specialty. From shapeshifting kittens to a large beast, they really do have their hands full this time.

I think this series is just full of fun and adventure. Looking for something light-hearted? Read this. Looking for something fun? Read this. Looking for a mix of mystery only seen on Sherlock and Doctor Who? Read this. We revisit our favourite characters, Jackaby, Abigail, Jenny, plus many others. For those that loved Jackaby, well it is an obvious choice to pick this up, for those that haven’t read Jackaby, then I highly suggest you do.

I didn’t enjoy this as much as the first one, hence the lower rating (I rated Jackaby 4.5), and I can’t really put my finger on it. Abigail’s and Jackaby’s witty back-and-forth was still entertaining, but not as entertaining as the first. The story was fun and original, filled with adventure and mystery. I wouldn’t go into this if you are looking for something serious, while it has serious elements in it, it is a fun, light-hearted and easy read.

I liked the romance and again, like the first in the series, I liked that it didn’t take too much away from the main plot and that Abigail realised she can have both – the work and the romance.

Overall, this is a series that I would definitely recommend!

P.S I really love these covers, they are so beautiful.

MY RATING: ★★★★☆
