”Secrets followed Lockwood about like the flapping of his coat, and it was nice to be close enough to feel them brush against me too.”

The more “Lockwood & Co” books I read, the more I want to dive into this world. It’s really amazing and something completely different to all the other fantasy books I usually read. Stroud invented such an intriguing world that it gets difficult not to believe in spectres, malaise and ghost lock. XD I mean alone the effort he put into his glossary is more than

I was in the mood for something spoopy for Halloween.

But I think I'm done with this series now. First off, the thin story is stretched over 374 pages when it easily could have been told in ~120. Second, now that we know the secret that Lockwood has been hiding in that room, his mystique is all gone, leaving him quite bland. Third, Lucy is threatened by a new female on the job. Jonathan Stroud, you should be ashamed of yourself for this. Is that really what you want to do with that character? Luc
This is a reread.

Second time reading this really stirred up emotions for me. That ending brought tears to my eyes and I just want to lay down and cry. Who knew this series could affect me like this?

I seem to love this even more reading this the second time. For me, this book is the best in the series. I am absolutely terrified to start the next book. I haven't read that book at all and was rereading the previous three in preparation for it. I'm so nervous and scared for what's going to happen w

I love this book.I can't get over it, I want to swallow it and I want to stare at it for a looong time.


The Hollow Boy is the third book in the Lockwood & Co. series and damn you, Jonathan Stroud for making me such an unrepentant fangirl to Lucy and Lockwood..


Speaking of Lucewood love team, there's another character added to our little band of psychics. Holly Munro is this goody-two-shoes,I'm-so-perfect-and-you-ca

Lockwood and Co. continue to freak me out and melt my heart at the same time. I’m. Just. So. Invested. In. Everything.

So, let me tell you, if you looking for creepy, this book has got it. If you’re looking for complex characters that will own your soul, this book has got it. If you’re looking for mysteries and thrills, this book has got it.

What a great cliffhanger! I really enjoyed The Hollow Boy which is the 3rd book in the Lockwood & Co. series.

First, the name of the book, The Hollow Boy was only a small portion of this book. The book was much more involved with other ghost hauntings. It also dives into personal changes within the paranormal group, Lockwood & Co.

I thought this was a good addition to the series and the book starts off with the crew of Anthony Lockwood, George and Lucy tackling ghosts while there's a ghost

Thoughts: I'm happy to say Jonathan Stroud really stepped up his game in this installment. In The Hollow Boy we get all the ghost chasing fun we've had in the previous two books, but with a little darker tone.

By darker tone, I mean the hauntings and description of the haunts had a more horror feel to them. Now, I'm not comparing this to a Stephen King book, but I felt more of a terror vibe with this as compared to the creepy and spooky atmosphere of books 1 & 2.

It has been about a year and

Consider Luckwood NOT failed. Slow burning, but definitely no fail.

But why...

Why must there be another cliffhanger? STROUD.

Honestly, this series just keeps getting better and better. It's a big call, but here goes - this is the best series to come along since my beloved Mr Potter. I never want this series to end.

This installment has a lot of humour (love that skull!), a lot of character development for Lucy, and A LOT of chills. I read the book in the cold hard light of day (after being scared silly reading the first installment at night), but frankly the climax of this book still scared the bejeebus out of me.

Looking back at my reviews for the first two books in the Lockwood & Co series, I learn that apparently the second book (The Whispering Skull) ended on a massive cliffhanger. But since there was so much time between me finishing the second book and starting the third, I completely forgot what the cliffhanger even was. If it got resolved in any satisfying manner in the beginning of The Hollow Boy, I didn't notice. So that's probably not a great sign.

We're at the third installation of what is

Absolutely brilliant and terrifying! And the most petrifying plot twist I've ever read!!! (view spoiler)

The Lockwood series are not for the faint of heart. People will ask: "What, the bloody hell, is she talking about? This book is targeting middle-school children! Does she get scared by her own bloody shadow?" and I'll just send my army of rabid bunnies after them, because reasons. This series will leave you with eyes wide open during the night and feet shive

Another good chapter in this series. I could have missed the angst between Lucy and Holly over Lockwood but it did produce one very funny scene.

4.5 re-read, this time with husband. What can I say? I couldn’t resist?
“Because you're unique . You shine like a beacon, attracting the attention of all dark things." It chuckled. “Why do you think I'm chatting with you?”

Ok, I am completely hooked on this series. Stroud builds on the previous two titles, deepening the development of our cast, while offering the expected thrilling action scenes, spine-tingling moments, and of course the humour and snark. We also start finding out a little mor

SO MUCH TO SAY. First: who thought a cliffhanger ending was a good idea? WHY? (It's a good ending. It grows organically out of the story. I just hate cliffhangers.)

Even with an abrupt end, the story crackles. I find the worldbuilding so compelling, and I never get bored of the different ways ghosts manifest and the many problems they can cause. I think The Hollow Boy dials up the series elements: there are more threads introduced that aren't wrapped up than I remember from the previous two books

this was as good as any of the other in the series. Stroud has created a world filled with fun, fear, mystery, conspiracy, and humor. I never want this series to end! and its Perfect for Halloween!!!!!

I was thrilled that my library finally got the audiobook for this latest release in the Lockwood and Co. series. I've been listening to it from the beginning and I hated to have to change format. The narrator is a different person, but she was very good. She brings Lucy, George, Lockwood and the other characters to life distinctively.

I was slightly less impressed with this than the previous books, but it was still very good. I wasn't sure I liked the addition of a new agent to the team. The tri

You know, it doesn’t often happen that I rate books higher as the series goes along. But this third installment definitely deserves that. Jonathan Stroud stepped it up a notch.

Especially in the plot department and world building. Things from the first and second book, like the figure on the goggles in the first book, are now becoming a part of a larger plot. Not everything is clear about this larger plot yet, but they are slowly falling into place. Another aspect that I liked is that I am getti

Definitely my least favourite of the series to date. Everything that I said last time stands, but I wanted to punch Lucy in the face for approximately 60% of the book. (Although to be fair, I kiiiiiind of wanted to punch Lockwood in the face for approximately 60% of the book too. So there's that.)

The trio are at the top of their game and their camaraderie has never been better, so it comes as quite a disappointment when Lucy arrives home one day to find the boys have added a new member to the team: Holly Munro. On top of dealing with the new member of the team, Lucy is struggling to come to terms with her developing powers of being able to communicate with spirits and is torn between the desire to investigate them more and in keeping herself and her team safe.

The third part of the Lockwood-series is my favorite so far. In addition to the ghost-hunting-adventures, which are always fun to read and entertaining, a new character is introduced as part of the team of Lockwood & Co.! I liked that Strout added a girl which brings a little more tension and jealousy to the mix. Also the story focusses more on Lucys abilities and the story behind Lockwoods family, which I loved to read about.

This book picks up where the second left off and, as usual for this series, delivers an exciting, terrifying horror adventure. The stakes are higher now because a serious incursion of Visitors (call them ghosts, spirits, haunts, whatever) is troubling Chelsea, and the best efforts of the big ghost-fighting agencies aren't enough to stop it. Lockwood, Lucy, and George aren't invited to the party--too small, and the powers involved are, again as usual, a little jealous of their success. But when L ...more

More like The Girl Who Got Gaslighted (Lockwood & Co.). Still scary and more accurate.

I have LOVED the last two in this series, so I started this one with a lot of faith.


I'm always interested when writers write main characters of the opposite gender. Ditto when they write in first person in the opposite gender. I think it's an interesting choice, and I'm always curious why they made that choice. I've really loved Lucy through the last two installments, but, she's had these occasional m
