After such a long time(?), now I've a chance to write down mini review about this book.
The Whispering Skull is a second book of Lockwood & Co. series which I have finished it a few weeks ago. It's about another scary things happened in London, not too scary but creepy—at least for me. Not like the first book which contains a mysterious staircase and dead girl, the second book used mirror and skull—obviously, because the title is 'The Whispering Skull'
I have to say, I got bored at first. The beginning was so slow—for me—but it well developed too. No rush here, just like water flowing calmly.
But the plus point is... You can imagine the situation easily. You can feel all the emotion; scary, horror, terror, happy, also... Sweet.
The characters are still gorgeous as before. I love their cooperation with a touch of argument. Lockwood, Lucy, and George look good together.
Ah, I forgot. It'll be a new character here. Which is the main star of this terror.
Yep, you can guess it!
It's Skull! A type three ghost who really like babbling, making some rude comments, and teasing everyone—especially Lucy. I love Skull's sarcasm, just like how I love George's sharp tongue. Their comments always trigger funny moments .
The second book is scarier and creepier than the first one. But, trust me(?), it won't make you can't sleep. Unless you read it in front of the mirror alone at home and playing Für Elise song. .
My suggestion is you must be patience with the long descriptions. Try not to rush it, just read it in relax mode so you won't left any details toward the mystery.
Because... Let me tell you something.
The plot twist nearly ending really upset me, even though I knew what will happen after everything had done
