    I hate to say it, but I was disappointed by this sequel. It lacked the emotional depth of the first book, which dealt with Harper's mental health, her family relationships, and the possession of a young child by evil ghosts. Now that Harper and company have overcome those challenges, this story felt pale in comparison.There is one "emotional" scene at the start of the book. But it happened before I could really get my footing and honestly had almost no impact. I think that event would have been better saved for halfway through or even the end of the book.Without the character development, what's left is a solid ghost-hunting mystert. Harper builds up her Scooby gang, as she figures out the grim and grisly past of the island her family is vacationing on and moves to stop it. I guessed the "villain" as soon as it was clear there was one, though I wasn't trying to. Those of you who actively think about what's happening in a mystery will probably figure it all out immediately.There is quite a bit of gore mentioned, so be aware if that's something you'd like your middle-grade reader to avoid. There's also a ton of infodumping too. Harper is privy to visions from the past and they're basically all big chunks of exposition. Some of the same information was repeated several times, which was tedious. The ending also felt like a big, convenient rush to wrap everything up in a neat bow.I think there will be more in this series, and I'll certainly keep reading, but I've adjusted it expectations. I'm on board for a growing gang of kids becoming spirit hunters and solving ghost mysteries, I just won't expect any more of the depth the first book had. To end on a really positive note, the cover art is still gorgeous and I can't wait to see more of it.
