I enjoy the way this series keeps building on what’s come before. By now I feel as though Lockwood, Lucy, and George are my old friends! The Hollow Boy starts out with Lockwood & Co. struggling with small-time jobs while a big one is raging in the background. For me, it felt as though too much time was wasted before Lockwood & Co. were finally able to jump into the meat of the story. Once the jump was made, however, spine-tingling terror was nicely balanced with comments that had me snorting with amusement. There are struggles aplenty as Lucy's Talent has expanded to where she is able to communicate with ghosts and not just the snarky skull in the jar. I don't want to post any spoilers but I can say "Holy smokes! That ending!!!"

Another great installment in the Lockwood and Co. series. The skull is just as sarcastic and funny as always, as is George. Lucy's power to speak with ghosts grows and puts the whole team in danger on several cases. More about Lockwood's past is revealed and the team faces the scariest visitor yet. Stroud continues to bring great adventure, witty characters, and creepiness to this series.
