The Whispering skull by Jonathan Stroud
In the six months since Anthony, Lucy, and George survived a night in the most haunted house in England, Lockwood & Co. hasn't made much progress. Quill Kipps and his team of Fittes agents keep swooping in on Lockwood's investigations. Finally, in a fit of anger, Anthony challenges his rival to a contest: the next time the two agencies compete on a job, the losing side will have to admit defeat in the Times newspaper. Things look up when a new client, Mr. Saunders, hires Lockwood & Co. to be present at the excavation of Edmund Bickerstaff, a Victorian doctor who reportedly tried to communicate with the dead. Saunders needs the coffin sealed with silver to prevent any supernatural trouble. All goes well-until George's curiosity attracts a horrible phantom. Back home at Portland Row, Lockwood accuses George of making too many careless mistakes. Lucy is distracted by urgent whispers coming from the skull in the ghost jar. Then the team is summoned to DEPRAC headquarters. Kipps is there too, much to Lockwood's annoyance. Bickerstaff's coffin was raided and a strange glass object buried with the corpse has vanished. Inspector Barnes believes the relic to be highly dangerous, and he wants it found.

Valentine by Jodi McAlister
A strange, black-as-midnight horse appears during a party. Frustratingly good-looking Finn throws a horseshoe at it, scaring it off before Marie can pat it and adding to the list of reasons why Pearl has hated Finn her whole life.

When the horse reappears in Pearl's yard and leaves her in a coma for three days, only to wake again at Finn's touch, Pearl starts to wonder if something supernatural is behind all these sinister happenings. She soon discovers that fairies known as the 'Seelie' and their wicked kin, the 'Unseelie', are hunting for a fairy changeling known as the 'Valentine'. While Pearl believes Finn is the real 'Valentine', the two supernatural forces suspect Pearl, so she maintains the façade while trying to work out how to stop the fairies before more people die.
