'The Empty Grave' Continues Or Ends Lockwood & Company Series By Jonathan Stroud ~ Kernel's CornerOnly I am a little anxious after hearing a few months ago that this will be the last book in the series. I almost thought we are not even halfway through the series, because there are still much to learn in this believable, creepy, and scary -- yet exciting -- world. This series moves on with the fifth book called The Empty Grave and it will be published just in time for my birthday this year. This could be a wonderful gift idea. I just need anyone to confirm that this isn't the last book in the series, please. So far no official cover has been released yet, but the synopsis has already been revealed, and you can read it below.
