Publisher's Summary

From number-one New York Times best-selling author Victoria Schwab comes a sweeping, spooky, evocative adventure, perfect for fans of Stranger Things and Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children

Ever since Cass almost drowned (okay, she did drown, but she doesn't like to think about it), she can pull back the Veil that separates the living from the dead...and enter the world of spirits. Her best friend is even a ghost. 

So things are already pretty strange. But they're about to get much stranger. 

When Cass's parents start hosting a TV show about the world's most haunted places, the family heads off to Edinburgh, Scotland. Here, graveyards, castles, and secret passageways teem with restless phantoms. And when Cass meets a girl who shares her "gift", she realizes how much she still has to learn about the Veil - and herself. 

And she'll have to learn fast. The city of ghosts is more dangerous than she ever imagined. 

New York Times best-selling author Victoria Schwab delivers a thrillingly spooky and action-packed tale of hauntings, history, mystery, and the bond between friends (even if that friend is a ghost...).

Loved it

I've loved Victoria Schwab's other works , and I loved this one too. I'm hoping that there will definitely be a follow-up to this because I would love to see more of this story! (And if you liked "Anna dressed in Blood" you'll love the story)

An Intriguing adventure<br />

This was my first attempt reading something by this author and I ended up being pleasantly surprised. Though it was definitely geared toward young adults, older readers may still appreciate it. It was well written and though rather short in length, managed to pull off a fully developed storyline. Cute characters and solid narration.
