    1. I was drawn to this in a charity shop mainly because I liked the cover - sometimes that has worked out really well for me and other times not so muchdly this time it was a not so much.I struggled to connect with the characters because they were all very one dimensional - there was little insight into what they were thinking, feeling etc just what they were doing. Admittedly I haven't read the first book so I didn't entirely understand the background of the characters so perhaps that made it hard [...]

    2. In this second instalment of thirteen-year-old Penelope Tredwell's gothic London life, one of the stories she pens under the name of Montgomery Flinch is being brought to life on camera. I thought this was a great route to take the plot, Penny and the other main characters as well as some new additions forward and into yet another sinister tale. From the first page, you are taken to Victorian London with elegant descriptions and gothic writing. Christopher Edge is one of my personal favourite au [...]

    3. Penelope Tredwell is 13, but that doesn't stop her from owning the Penny Dreadful, a magazine filled with horror stories of her own writing. No one knows the stories are written by Penny, as she writes under the name of Montgomery Flinch and has hired an actor to play the part of the now famous writer. Talking movie pictures are beginning to capture the population of Victorian Britain's imagination, and a filmmaker has approached the Penny Dreadful for permission to turn one of Montgomery Flinch [...]

    4. I found this at work while tidying the kids' section, and it looked awesome so I borrowed it. I'm really glad I did. Penny Tredwell is a 13 year old orphan who lives in London in 1900. Along with her guardian, the lawyer Mr Wigram, she owns her father's magazine 'The Penny Dreadful'. The Penny Dreadful is very popular for its tales of terror, written by one Montgomery Flinch. Unknown to everyone except the very small staff of the monthly magazine, 'Montgomery Flinch' is actually Penny herself. S [...]

    5. Penelope Tredwell, thirteen year old proprietor and writer for popular Victorian magazine The Penny Dreadful, is back in her second historical-alternate-history-mystery-horror-paranormal tale starting six months after the end of Twelve Minutes to Midnight.This time she’s pulled into the new and exciting world of the moving picture when the mysterious Mr Gold offers to make a film of one of Montgomery Flinch’s tales of terror.Shadows of the Silver Screen has a similar pace to Twelve Minutes t [...]

    6. When I requested SoSS from Netgalley (in exchange for my honest review) I had no idea what to expect. Judging from the cover it could have been a children's book or an adult book with a quirky cover. I also didn't realize it was the 2nd book in a series. Technically, I guess this is geared towards middle school kids, but is fine for ages 8 and up looking for a clean read and stands alone well despite my having some initial questions about the set up.Edge did a good job of setting time and place [...]

    7. In this follow-up to Twelve Minutes to Midnight, Penelope Tredwell continues to write thrillers that are published in the newspaper she runs. But when the man she has hired to be her public face signs over the rights to a spooky story she wrote earlier, he begins to make a movie of the story but revises it in interesting ways. When things start to go awry on the set and Penelope starts playing the role of Amelia, readers will wonder how much is fact in this fictionalized account of a cruel arist [...]

    8. This was a great book. I think that the ending was the best part. Penelope Tredwell, the author of the Penny Dreadful magazine, while pretending to be "Montgomery Flinch" was tricked into giving away the rights to one of the first stories from the magazine. It was then made into a movie that was soon played from one of the first projectors in the world at a theater. The projector wasn't just any old projector, though. When the movie played, about ten minutes into the performance, the special pro [...]

    9. A cracking story which lived up to the anticipation. I love Penelope and the penny dreadful. For me the best thing about this series is the feel they give you for Victorian London. Whilst there is a paranormal twist it doesn't overtake the story. For me the real joy of this book was following Penelope on her adventures around Victorian London and playing detective with her. Without giving too much away I found the story brilliantly engaging and it kept me completely hooked. If you liked Philip P [...]

    10. This was a wonderful slighty steampunk, slightly gothic story set in Victorian times.The heroine, Penelope, is the owner and author of the Penny Dreadful - a popular magazine filled with tales of adventure and horror. But in this latest episode one of her stories causes frightening problems when a filmmaker decides to make a film using his latest new fangled cameraI really enjoyed this and would recommend it for anyone who likes a good story, even though it's aimed at the 9-11/young teens audien [...]

    11. Keine Lust mehr nach 26%. Die Dinge, die mich im ersten Band gestört haben, gehen genauso weiter. Dazu kommt, dass nicht mal der Fall (welcher Fall eigentlich, bisher gibt es noch keinen richtigen) spannend ist. Könnte sicher nett sein, aber ich nutze die Zeit lieber für ein wirklich gutes Buch.

    12. *Warning: This text contains spoilers* This was defintely great, but I liked the first one better. I felt like it needed a bit more of the soul-stealing Amelia Eversholt and maybe some more ghost appearances. The ones that were in there were great, though. An interesting concept.

    13. i have this book my friend gave me she caught an autograph from christopher edge lucky huh? so let me tell u she is lucky and by the way she do not like this book so thats why she gave it to me and i am almost in chapter 6

    14. I have come to the conclusion that this author is a great story-teller but not a very talented writer. He tends to be adjective heavy (rather like most high school essayists) and verb light. Still, if you read this book quickly to just extract the story, the story is quite good.

    15. A good Gothic book about moving pictures, a soul grabbing spirit and an unscrupulous money grabbing producer. An easy read which was hard to put down.

    16. Nice. But a bit too formal in writing for a kids book. Formal writing and child's theme do not go great together. But interesting. Not too bad. Great for kids, adultst so much.

    17. Most definitely has some scary moments and would satisfy those asking for a scary book. The writing was a bit uneven and it was an easy, fast read.
