So, how's my gap year going? Is it giving me a taste of the ghost-hunting business or is it just dumping me into situations where I could e/>So,

So what do you do, or rather, in my case, what do I do when I get a free book, generally, if I’m being honest, trying to be as nice as possible and also maybe being a little bit biased and giving it a solid four star rating when it might not actually have been. Oh also, generally an either very short or very long review. This might have been even more so the case going into this book when the author follows you on Twitter for some reason, but let me just say, this book by Australian author Micha ...more

When eighteen year old Anton Marin decided to spend the year contemplating whether or not to carry the Marin family legacy, meandering the streets of Melbourne at night in an age old tradition of easing the passage of spirits into Elsewhere with his new colleague and friend Rani Cross. A Former Londoner and member of the Company of The Righteous. Weepers, Moaners, Lingerers and ghosts who manifest as Ragers haunt the abandoned streets and landmarks of Melbourne but although of late, have become ...more

Trigger warnings: death, torture, murder, probably a few other things that I've forgotten whoops...

I absolutely ADORED Gap Year in Ghost Town so the second this was announced, I was INSTANTLY EXCITED. And it's possible that I overhyped it eeeeeeever so slightly in my mind because while I still really really enjoyed this and the humour was still absolutely wonderful and I still adored every second of the Melbourne setting, there was something about this that dragged. Maybe it's me bec

More clever Anton snark, more Rani sword-wielding magic and more Bec google-fu genius.

A couple of new fun characters, the reappearance of a missing person, and Anton's super-suave style.

Also lovely glimpses of a few of Melbourne's historic buildings.

It's all so good, with even more to come.

The perfect follow up to Gap Year. Set a few months down the track, Anton has finally started to find his feet as a ghost hunter. His self-proclaimed 'more-mature-Anton project' resonated through his friendships, family and career goals (which, admittedly, were mostly about staying on this side of the living/dead veil). This book did everything a good sequel should: it answered a few leftover mysteries by raising even more intriguing ones, the characters made all the wrong mistakes for the right ...more

I received a copy of Graveyard Shift in Ghost Town from Allen & Unwin Australia to review.

Acclaimed Australian author Michael Pryor revisits his Ghost Town young adult series with another entertaining and intriguing story, Graveyard Shift in Ghost Town.

Anton Marin is having an extremely odd gap year. As a member of an infamous outcast ghost-hunting family, Anton can see the ghosts that linger in our world, and he has recently taken up the family business. Working with

This is a fun book. Not sure who the target audience is though. I guess it is for young adults. I was glad to see that the author has got rid of some of the annoying aspects of the first book in the series such as the potential romance with Rani, and all those bloody awful dad jokes. It seems the author is now heading into sci-fi territory with this series. I’m not sure I’m interested in that aspect. The third book may not be a winner for me.

I absolutely loved the first book in this series and had high hopes for the one. Just didn’t quite do it for me as much sadly. Plenty of clever humour and great descriptions of the city if you’re a Melbournite or know the area well.
