Needless to say,i became a huge fan of Downside Ghosts series by Stacia Kane.If you have read my previous reviews of the other 2 books in the series i'm guessing you understood how much i liked them!
City of Ghosts,is as good as the previous books and if i may say even better!

Downside Ghosts series is among those series that just gets better by each book and each one of them manages to grab the reader's attention and suck him even deeper into an amazing world!I find it hard to write this review cause i think that i have already said everything in my previous reviews...The plot is amazing and the world where the story unfolds is getting even crueller, book by book, but still beautiful in it's own ways!I think that for a world where no religion exists,this book's characters are really religious,but believing in themselves and their own power rather than somewhere else.

I just loved the way the relationship between Chess and Terrible builds up.It's among the most believable couples i've encountered in books,with a relationhip not full of roses or any other sweetness,something that surely fits with the whole setting of this story.Nothing here is easy or beautiful,but still,you get to love every aspect of this world!Every character here isn't sketched perfectly but his darker emotions are vividly displayed!And i just loved that!That's how real people are,not just perfect,conscious and righteous the whole time!And maybe that's why i enjoyed every single page of this book,scratch that,of every book in this series!

The plot again follows the same steps,as in the previous books,but here we get to learn more on everything!More on the characters' life,more on the world,on the politics and the way everything works,plus more on the Lamaru,the really bad guys!All in all,a more than decent book and definitely the best series i started this year!I'm guessing my Christmas came earlier,when i decided to pich this series!
