"Waiting On" Wednesday (#55) The Shadow Cabinet (Shades of London #3) by Maureen Johnson


“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

This week I'm picking:
The Shadow Cabinet (Shades of London #3) by  
Expected publication: February 10th 2015 by Putnam Juvenile

From Goodreads: 

The thrilling third installment to the Edgar-nominated, bestselling series

At the end of Maureen Johnson’s New York Times bestselling novel, The Madness Underneath, Rory, Callum and Boo are reeling from the sudden and tragic death of their friend and squad leader, Stephen. The Shadow Cabinet picks up where readers left off, and now Rory is convinced there must be a way to bring Stephen back. Meanwhile, new dangers arise: Rory's classmate Charlotte is missing, and Jane and her nefarious organization are clearly planning something big—with Rory as their most valuable asset. Time is running out as the ghost squad struggles to protect London and Rory fights to bring Stephen back.

Why I'm Waiting:
Book 2 was a disappointment, but I am curious to see if book three can redeem the series.  I may regret reading it, but I do want to see how it all ends.  I feel like I've been waiting for this book for forever.


  1. Since I haven't read the rest of the series I skipped the synopsis but I like Maureen Johnson's books in general :) Thanks for sharing!

  3. EEP! Can't wait for this one! I haven't read the second book yet--and totally avoided looking at the description here!--because I heard the ending was cliffhangery! So I'm holding off til February it seems to read it so I can go back to back with this one!

    Here's my WoW

    Have a GREAT day!
