Imagine reading a children book, one of those simplistic ones with many rhymes and pictures to your son/ daughter/ younger sibling. Overtly historical, it also encompasses a degree of Indian folktale, a ghostly guardian angel watching over one of the teenage protagonists. As each victim's identity are uncovered, Rossel recognizes them as fellow musicians from a specific concert as well as his lover Sofia. Nothing special and it felt a little rushed, but it's based on a good idea, it had a great writing style and characters with a lot of potential.

Jacob lives in the realm of the living with Cassidy, but Cassidy now can open and enter the veil, and see the ghosts that are stuck within it. But when Cass meets a girl who shares her "gift " , she realizes how much she still has to learn about the Veil — and herself.There was a little bit of foreboding at the end of the book so we’ll see what’s going to happen next. Usually, if a plot isn’t good, I’m pretty much fine with it, as long as I like the characters and their development was good. The whole concept of their television series and having to travel to different locations for filming is so exciting; opening up numerous directions for this series to go in. Cassidy Blake isn’t the most popular girl in her school, but she has the only friend that she needs; a ghost named Jacob that saved her from death.

I used to stay up all night in my room scared out of my mind watching it, so when I read the synopsis of this I knew I needed to read it. So why only four stars well whilst music plays a significant part of the story, and I am afraid quite a lot of the in depth musical explanations went straight over my head and bored me. After all, she and her ghost best friend Jacob have survived two haunted cities while travelling for her parents' TV show.Started like Gorky Park then when you realise the plot and the reason I thought it all a bit far fetched and silly. There were many HP references that warmed my heart but I am not sure if MG readers would feel the same about it. I didn’t get warm with Lara but she’s not really a cordial character so I guess I wasn’t supposed to like her all that much. The late-Stalinist era is vividly rendered in all its paranoid horror, the cast is colourful and the whole thing, with its emphasis on musicology and the horrors of the infamous Leningrad blockade, has a pleasing thoughtfulness, intellectual rigour and historical depth.
