Book Review: The Creeping Shadow

Summary: After leaving Lockwood & Co. at the end of The Hollow Boy, Lucy is a freelance operative, hiring herself out to agencies that value her ever-improving skills. One day she is pleasantly surprised by a visit from Lockwood, who tells her he needs a good Listener for a tough assignment. Penelope Fittes, the leader of the giant Fittes Agency wants them--and only them--to locate and remove the Source for the legendary Brixton Cannibal. They succeed in their very dangerous task, but tensions remain high between Lucy and the other agents. Even the skull in the jar talks to her like a jilted lover. What will it take to reunite the team? Black marketeers, an informant ghost, a Spirit Cape that transports the wearer, and mysteries involving Steve Rotwell and Penelope Fittes just may do the trick. But, in a shocking cliffhanger ending, the team learns that someone has been manipulating them all along. . . .

Thoughts: I'll just point out here that there are a few discrepancies in the summary up there in comparison with the actual book. But it's nothing too big.  
 This is the latest installment in the series Lockwood and Co. which has me and Epic very sad. So much happens in here! We need the next book! 
 The story follows the previous set up by having three different plot lines going at once. They start out separately but slowly weave together to create a mind blowing, action-packed, terrifying, tale of horror and perfection!
 The writing never fails to make me laugh. Some of the most frightening scenes have had me tearing up and choking on laughter because of the clever sentence structure and, best of all, the back and forth dialogue. 
 And of course, the characters are the best. Literally my favorite combination of people, they make this series truly great. I had a tough time getting started in this book simply because of where the last one had left all of the cast but as I got into I was unable to put it down!

Content: The usual amount of language for this series (D***, C***, etc). Lots of frightening scenes with ghosts. some violence and plenty of mentions of gore. Otherwise clean. 
 Not a suggested read for anyone who frightens easily or who hasn't read the previous three books but a highly recommended read for those wanting a mostly clean, character driven book that full of thrills!
