Educational Value Some references to places in London, especially cemeteries and along the Thames. Positive Messages Bravery and not giving in to fear are essential for survival in the ghost-catching business.
They're a good team but also competitive and take too many risks trying to win a bet. Some explosions, fistfights, and rapier fights among the living cause injuries; a man is stabbed in the back with a knife and dies.
The slicing up of one "Visitor," or ghost, is gory enough that narrator Lucy warns readers to skip ahead if they're squeamish. Plenty of talk of the way Visitors died, and repeated mentions of a man who was eaten by rats. Bleeding walls, hungry rats: really not for the faint of heart.
You can read my review here. Plus —huzzah! You know you want to fall back into a world where specters haunt the streets and psychic children carry swords. Reeeeaad meeee.
Clever readers would have no trouble starting with the second book, as long as they could throw themselves unreservedly into the setting of post-Problem modern London. The problem being ghosts, of course, the history of which is developed a little further in this second installment.
Lucy, George, and the ever-dashing Lockwood made quite a name for their rag-tag agency after their adventure in Combe Carey Hall where, yes, the staircase was rather unhappily vocal. Bruised pride and broken faces abound.
As luck would have it, Lockwood and Kipps find themselves called together quite soon. An every-night graveyard job went badly awry when a definitely-haunted and probably-cursed mirror is stolen from the scene.

The mirror has an irresistible pull, but anyone who looks into it goes very mad and is quickly dead. The twisted individual who created the mirror centuries before was Dr. Bickerstaff: a man obsessed with finding out what lay beyond mortal perception, who was pleased as plasma to harm other people in his quest to find out.
With the mirror at large in London, the living are at risk. Racing against nefarious antique dealers, dangerously obsessed academics, and their horrid rivals, the young psychics will have to draw on all their sword skills and quick wits to find the mirror before calamity finds them.Cathleen Young.
Maybe this was just a weaker story - other reviews seem to agree that it wasn't as strong as the first book - or maybe the joy at finding a new Stroud series had worn off.
Overall story summed up in one word: So, who do you call? The Disorderly Knights.
Agencies employ psychic children to help dispatch the dead permanently. Sign in.
But still an awesome series for all ages!! When I got over my shock, I ran outside, and looked up and down the corridor. Personalize Common Sense for your family.
