The Empty Grave ends the Lockwood & Co series, that with this novel reached the fifth installment. In the ending of the previous novel (The Creeping Shadow), thanks to the skull’s revelations, we could guess the main narrative line of this novel.
The Lockwood & Co. team main focus here is to understand better the outside world, discovered in the previous novel, but they also are after some ghosts, and these parts of the book are mainly interesting because they provide info about the feeling of the main characters.
To talk about the plot of this novel is quite hard (if one wants to avoid spoilers), so I leave the book to the readers.
I liked very much this ending novel, also because of some well-devised plot twists. The characters are always coherent with the background built with the previous books; here the main focus is on Lockwood and on his recklessness in finding dangerous situations, as Lucy has by now understood.
This series is a very good and enjoyable one, an absolutely suggested read.
