Review : The Shadow Cabinet by Maureen Johnson 

Rory and her friends are reeling from a series of sudden and tragic events. While racked with grief, Rory tries to determine if she acted in time to save a member of the squad. If she did, how do you find a ghost? Also, Rory’s classmate Charlotte has been kidnapped by Jane and her nefarious organization. Evidence is uncovered of a forty-year-old cult, ten missing teenagers, and a likely mass murder. Everything indicates that Charlotte’s in danger, and it seems that something much bigger and much more terrible is coming.
Time is running out as Rory fights to find her friends and the ghost squad struggles to stop Jane from unleashing her spectral nightmare on the entire city. In the process, they’ll discover the existence of an organization that underpins London itself – and Rory will learn that someone she trusts has been keeping a tremendous secret.

In this exhilarating third installment to her New York Times bestselling series, Maureen Johnson brings the sinister streets of London to life with her signature wit and page-turning suspense.  (From: Goodreads)

This is the third book of this series.  I enjoyed the first book.  The second book…hmm…general.  However, the third book was interesting.

Things I Liked About It 

– the story 

The story was really gripping.  I just wanted to turn one page after another.  I finished this book in no time.

Things I Disliked About It 

Honestly, there was nothing I didn’t like about this book.

Fun Quotes 


Boo wheeled around and widened her eyes so suddenly and so extremely that I thought they might come out of their sockets.  Because that can happen.  I mean, I know it happens to dogs.  One of our neighbors at home had a pug whose eyes used to come out every once in a while, and they’d put her back in.  They call him Popeye.  Swear to God.



Her eyes welled up, and she dabbed them dry, which was a terrifying thing to watch, considering how long her nails were.



You should read this book if you

– like other books in this series 

– want to play ghost detective (umm…not that cool like Supernatural hunter tho)

– want to read a great thriller
