The Mystery at Dunvegan Castle (Edinburgh Nights, 3)
It’s supposed to be a simple job: wait hand and foot on the attendees of the Society of Skeptical Enquirers’ biennial conference. And maybe steal something no one will miss. But when a scroll is stolen and a Librarian murdered, fifteen-year-old ghostalker Ropa is put in charge of finding the truth. She can do it, she knows she can, and more importantly, her mentor and everyone else are counting on her. If she fails, there could be war, and she could lose everything she’s working toward.
Ropa is a fascinating character, one that I found liking and disliking at times, but she feels real. The ending left me wanting to read the next book. This is the third book in the series; it’s not necessary to read the others to understand what’s going on, but if you want to continue reading the series after this one, you will want to read the others. The mystery was good; the clues are there, and as the truth is revealed, none of it was a surprise, but it’s not super obvious either.
