I've been listening to the Secret Histories audiobooks again while working out, and I've been trying to figure out what happened to Jacob Drood, the ghost that haunts the old family chapel. He was present in the first and second books (I think he was part of Eddie's council during the second), but other than meeting him in limbo in the fifth, I don't think Jacob has shown up anywhere since. Were there any other Jacob sightings that I missed? Hopefully he didn't accidentally run into the crew from the Carnacki Institute...

Yes, but I can't remember which book.
It was a plot point that was resolved. I'll have to either skim through the books! Or maybe someone can point you to the relevant chapter of the right book?

Hi Alyindar

The story of how Jacob came to haunt, and his future was in the second book Daemons are forever. Everything explains its self near the end, and i believe as of the way it ended jacob is unlikely to be in any other books. Shame as he was a good character.

Ahh, I admit I've only read the second and third books once (although the rest of them got two or three reads), I'll keep an ear out as I go through the audiobooks.

Seeing Jacob showed up briefly in the 5th book I'm hoping he will reappear in one of the later novels of the series.
Mind you, I also keep on hoping for the miraculous reappearance of Roger Morningstar and Harry Drood so I'm big on the hoping when it comes to characters (re)appearing ^__^
