Review: The Girl Who Saved Ghosts by K. C. Tansley

by MK French

In the second book of "The Unbelievables" series, Kat is approached by the ghost of an ancestor begging for her help in solving a murder mystery. Kat has to learn how to use the magic she had inherited, especially before the Dark One tries to kill her and the other heirs to the families that hers is tied to.

Though I hadn't read the first book, there were enough references back to the events that I could continue reading this one without losing track of the plot or characters. The present is affected by Kat and her friend Evan going into the past, which is vividly described. The Dark One as the big bad of the series feels like yet another rehashing of an old trope. The villain in the past is a much more interesting one for Kat and Evan to fight against, and I enjoyed those sequences a lot.

Kat's yearning to know more about her father and his family made her very approachable, especially since I went into this book without the background of the first one. I liked the approach to magic here, and learning along with Kat how it worked. If this series is one with a family heirloom at the center of each book, then there are two more to go and possibly a fifth book in the series to wrap it all up. I hope so, anyway, because this is a fun concept to read about.
