Fantasy. Juvenile Fiction. Juvenile Literature. Mystery. HTML:A sinister Problem has occurred in London: all nature of ghosts, haunts, spirits, and specters are appearing throughout the city, and they aren't exactly friendly. Only young people have the psychic abilities required to see-and eradicate-these supernatural foes. Many different Psychic Detection Agencies have cropped up to handle the dangerous work, and they are in fierce competition for business.
In The Screaming Staircase, the plucky and talented Lucy Carlyle teams up with Anthony Lockwood, the charismatic leader of Lockwood & Co, a small agency that runs independent of any adult supervision. After an assignment leads to both a grisly discovery and a disastrous end, Lucy, Anthony, and their sarcastic colleague, George, are forced to take part in the perilous investigation of Combe Carey Hall, one of the most haunted houses in England. Will Lockwood & Co. survive the Hall's legendary Screaming Staircase and Red Room to see another day?
Listeners who enjoyed the action, suspense, and humor in Jonathan Stroud's internationally bestselling Bartimaeus books will be delighted to find the same ingredients, combined with deliciously creepy scares, in his thrilling and chilling Lockwood & Co. series.

    Skulduggery Pleasant de Derek Landy (nessreader)
    nessreader: strong likable girl heroes, the trappings of gothick (walking skeleton in skulduggery, ghost exorcism business in lockwood) without feeling creeping horror; the drama moves too briskly for that and the heroes take action rather than brooding

    Històries de fantasmes d'un arqueòleg de M. R. James (motorbuffalo)
    motorbuffalo: MR James wrote quietly creepy ghost stories whose meandering tone and academic language hid a dark, frightening trap waiting to be sprung on the reader.
  5. 00
    The House with a Clock in Its Walls de John Bellairs (motorbuffalo)
    motorbuffalo: If you like the Lockwood and Co. books I think you are likely to enjoy John Bellairs' books. The House With a Clock in its Walls is a good place to start. It has mystery, wizardry, and creeping horror.
  6. 01
    A Wizard's Guide to Defensive Baking de T. Kingfisher (Cloverlimes)
    Cloverlimes: Both 'A Wizard's Guide to Defensive Baking' and 'The Screaming Staircase' are fantasy YA novels where children do the dirty work. The 'Wizard's Guide' is more focused on action, where the 'Screaming Staircase' is more suspense/horror. The first also has a huge focus on baking, where the second is primarily focused on hunting spirits.… (més)

This seems like it’s going to be a great series. It was suspenseful, yet funny. I listened to the audio and enjoyed the narration. I’ve read several reviews that thought Lucy was a bit flat, but with the audio, I didn’t feel that way at all. It has a nice Harry Potter feel with both the world building, companionship and readability across all ages. ( )

This book is a lot of fun. Can't speak to the series (yet), but if you like this, there's more to dip into. This is paranormal horror with a YA slant - there's death, but it's not gruesome, graphic, or gratuitous. Reads fast in a good way. The characters are interesting and the plot and pacing are solid.

Depends on the reader of course, but I'd say a 14 or 15 YO with interest in the genre could handle this (but it's a fun horror-lite read for the olds, too).

I thought the Netflix rendition of this was pretty great and was disappointed it was cancelled. You don't have to watch, of course, but similar to Harry Potter, watching doesn't negate the enjoyment of reading (and vice versa), but is a way to see a creative vision of it brought to life.

Definitely worth a try! ( )

Loved it!! I love stories where Magic and the supernatural are front and center in the main world. Usually stories like this, the ghost hunters or supernatural experts have to keep hidden, to the shadows, because magic is one *big* secret. But in this world, the entire country adapted to supernatural threats and are apart of everyone's everyday lives. The pace was just right, and the author often put background information into the proper places in a way that didn't stall the story or make the reader forget at which point in time the story currently is. The characters are all pretty well rounded and not one dimensional, there are lots of moral grey areas that are fun to dissect and the overall storyline is hinted at many times for future books. However, often when the characters are fighting the "Visitors" the end to the fight seems pretty anticlimactic, which the MC actually points out, which is a nice kind of fourth wall break. Overall this is a great story and Johnathan Stroud has got himself another winner. ( )

The book that started me on long and enthralling love affair with horror. Stroud is remarkable and has built characters that you utterly fall in love with and paints such amazing scenarios. I will never forget wrecking myself staying up so late before school to finish this because of the utter heart-in-mouth, blood chilling grip the last few hundred pages had over me.
Might just be reminiscent but this book always holds a special place in my heart and is one of the books I will reread for fun when I want the pick me up. ( )

I wanted to give this book a try after seeing the Netflix series. It was a disappointment to hear that it was cancelled, so I thought reading the books might be nice! I'm all for giving an understanding rating to juvenile books even as an older reader, but this one was unfortunate. While I loved the characters in the Netflix series, getting inside the head of Lucy Carlyle was no walk in the park, and the characterization of the boys also left something to be desired.

I almost wonder if Jonathan Stroud shouldn't have made Lucy a boy instead. She's so against every other female character she interacts with even briefly, including the ghost, describing them in rather unflattering terms (and I won't even go into how she talks about George, it's gross). Her "connection" to Annie is more one of curiosity than a genuine wish to get the girl some justice. And while there are some nice spooky elements to this story and fun interactions between the main characters, overall the main trio are flatter than pancakes, even by juvenile standards. ( )

Of the first few hauntings I investigated with Lockwood & Co. I intend to say little, in part to protect the identity of the victims, in part because of the gruesome nature of the incidents, but mainly because in a variety of ingenious ways, we succeeded in messing them all up.
