The Girl Who Loved Ghosts by K. C. Tansley ~ a Review

by MK French

Kat is in her senior year at McTernan Academy, but her magical training means abandoning her best friend.  In the meantime, Evan is struggling with all of his real-world responsibilities as well as being the Kingsley heir and new owner of Ravenhurst manor. He and Kat have to travel into the past again, but completing their quest not only puts Kat in mortal danger but will require changing the past. Protecting everyone she loves means that Kat must risk destroying every relationship that matters to her.

The Girl Who Loved Ghosts is the third book in The Unbelievables, after The Girl Who Ignored Ghosts and The Girl Who Saved Ghosts (read my review). KC Tansley loves the cover art for this one, and I do love the castle looming in the background. With this book, it dives right into the action right away. There is only the briefest of summaries of what the important bits of prior books are, so you'll likely miss the importance of being the Langley heir and the Kingsley heir, as well as why the Dark One is so frightening for all of them. If this is the first book you pick up, I do suggest going back to read the first two in the series first to better understand these concepts. You can pick things up as you go, but it'll save you some confusion along the way.

Kat outright states in the beginning that she would rather that Morgan hate her for pushing her away and stay alive, especially after the vision she had in book 2. Morgan and Seth follow Kat and Evan as they travel to Dunbarton, the Langley ancestral home, and are serious in their desire to assist in the current quest to find Ravenhurst manor. Kat's father Maximilian is even less of a father figure in this one, all in the name of training her. The further Kat goes into the past, the harder a toll it takes on her magic. It also opens up more possibilities for things to go wrong, which they inevitably do. Time travel is dangerous, and we discover more about the heirs and the dangers of the Dark One.

This isn't the end of the Unbelievables series, and there are plenty of tantalizing hooks for the next novel.
