After a summer spent in a haunted castle—a summer in which she traveled through time to solve a murder mystery—Kat is looking forward to a totally normal senior year at McTernan Academy.

The Girl Who Saved Ghosts by K C Tansley is Book II of The Unbelievables, so this will be a short but ‘you will want to read this book’ review.

She had put a target on her back from the Dark One, after solving the Radcliffe mystery. Back at school, and the ghosts are relentless, wanting her help.

Kat is headstrong, protective, sometimes reckless. She puts her life on the line. She is the peacemaker between the four families, the Radcliffes the Kingsleys, the Mallorys and her own family, the Langle

Thanks to netgalley and the publisher for allowing me to read this ARC in exchange for an honest review.
I found this book far more engaging and interesting to read than the first in the series. Again the writing structure was fairly simple but somehow the plot developed quickly and aroused my interest in Kat and Evan and their family legacies. Consequently I began to read more quickly in order to see whether their plans would be successful in strengthening their bond and increase their powers to

In one of those happenstances you can't predict (either that or there's a wave I'm not seeing) I've read several girl-who-helps-ghosts stories lately. After the high octane adult ones, this young adult offering seemed slower paced and less intense, but that might be a function of its being aimed at the younger reader.

This is the second in the series, but I figured out pretty fast what was going on, partly because some tropes are familiar after decades of reading.

The Girl Who Saved Ghosts is the second book in The Unbelievables series, and it was as enjoyable as the first book. Much like the First book, The Girl Who Ignored Ghosts, my feelings are somewhat mixed. Certain elements of the story I really enjoyed whereas other elements didn’t quite live up to what I had been anticipating. As with the first book, it’s more of a three-point-five-star read.

The Girl Who Saved Ghosts builds heavily upon the events of the first book, meaning you need to read the f

A big shout out to NetGalley and Beckett Publishing for the ARC for my honest review.
I have not read the first book-I actually didn't notice that it was the 2nd in a series. I have now obtained the first book but I am reading them out of order.
It actually reads rather well as a stand alone-I didn't feel like I was missing that much by starting with the second. It certainly didn't detract from the book. I enjoyed this book as I never knew what was going to happen next. No spoilers as it appears
Reviewed on Lili Lost in a Book

I remember really enjoying the sequel to this book, so I was very excited to read this book! And I was not disappointed! Overall, I very much enjoyed it!

The thing I really loved about the first book was the time travel aspect, and I am happy to report that we get that again in this one! Yay!

Hahahaha! This is the best thing ever! <3 Cas/Misha :)

We are going back in to retrieve more family heirlooms and maybe help out some ghosties and clear up another murder mystery. I am all for that! I just really love going back in

What a page turner, I couldn't put it down once I started reading. This is the second in The Unbelievables series but can be read as a stand alone.

Kat spent the summer in a haunted castle where she traveled through time and helped solved a murder mystery. She didn’t do it alone, Evan was with her and she couldn’t have done it without him. Which wasn’t a surprise once she realized the history behind their families and the ties that bind them together.

Now Kat is back at McTernan Academy for her senior year. After spending most of her life making sure that ghosts couldn’t contact her, it seems like the floodgates are open. She is being asked

Kat gets to meet her family in this book and learns a lot about the history of all four families that are bound together. Kat and Evan travel back in time to find the missing dagger that Evan will need to protect him. He almost dies saving Kat before they arrived to her family's home, so getting this dagger is a must. This time Kat wants to see if she can do more to change the past and protect Ellie and Percy who died a long time ago. Kat gets hurt in the process. While healing, Kat and Evan spe ...more

Thank you to the publishers for providing an ARC of this book through NetGalley.

I find myself really enjoying this book, and I wish book 3 were available immediately, because I just want to continue the story.

I much preferred this book to book 1, and I really like the developing relationship between Kat and Evan. The unfortunate side effect of this book lasting three weeks with Kat in Dumbarton, is that the side characters like Seth and Morgan aren’t present, and it just reinforces this lack of

“The Girl Who Saved Ghosts” is the second book in the imaginative “Unbelievables” series that combines mystery, time travel, and ghosts with a hint of romance. It begins when Kat Preston Langley who’s beginning her senior year at McTernan Academy is visited by the ghost of a young girl who insists she did not kill the Kingsley heir and needs her help to prove it. With the curse of the Langley Legacy and the determination of the Dark One to kill her, Kat is reluctant at first to help Ella Harding ...more

While this isn't the ideal stand-alone second book, it's a wonderful continuation of the first. Without reading the first book, you'll be lost.

*I've got this book from NetGalley in exchange of an honest review*

It is a second book in The Unbelievables series, where our young Kat uses her powers to help ghosts instead of ignoring them. As in a first book she gets in to a much trouble and has to go to the past to fix some things. That is my brief synopsis of this book.

I ended up liking this book better than the first one. In this one I was expecting the time travel aspect and I thought that it was actually done better than in the first book. There were some little twists I didn't see coming that I thought enhanced the story. This book had fewer characters which I actually liked a lot because I felt like it was a big hard keeping up with all of them in the first one. There is definitely room at the end of this story for continuation but honestly I think it cou ...more

The stakes are even higher in the second installment of this series. I mean, we were talking life or death before, but we're *seriously* talking life or death here. Without spoiling anything, everything is amped up for Kat and her friends when she travels to her ancestral home and meets relatives she just recently discovered she has. I loved the first book, but I *LOVED* this second book. There's a sense of danger looming over Kat and Evan throughout the story that really drives home the entire ...more

The Girl Who Saves Ghosts is as engaging, adventurous, and mysterious as the first in the series! There is murder, romance, friendships, rivalries, and powerful dark magic all combined into a lovely tale of history and the supernatural. It's perfect for fans of history and paranormal!

I was pleasantly surprised by this book. For me, it had elements of Harry-Potter-esque writing, and also reminded me of The Twilight Saga. Kat and her college friends are strong characters, and I was really swept up by the writing style. KC Tansley is a new author for me, and I felt like I really "got into" the story very quickly and my intest didn't wane. I do want to read the first book to get more background as to how the story started from the beginning of the series. Even though I started w ...more

As soon as I turned the last page for The Girl Who Ignored Ghosts, the first book of this series, I immediately reached for this one. The Girl Who Saved Ghosts expands upon the foundation laid in the first book, exploring the mysteries of Kat's magical heritage and her family history as Kat and Evan embark upon another time travel adventure.. This one was more character-based, fleshing out and developing the characters.

As she does in her first book of the series, author K.C. Tansley deftly weaves real-world concerns of a high school senior into her time-travel murder mystery. However, in Book 2, the stakes are even higher, our understanding of Kat deepens, and answers to questions about the Langley legacy posed in Book 1 are revealed by the novel’s end. Kat’s quest (you’ll have to read to find out exactly what that is—no spoilers in this review!) deepens the theme of personal sacrifice and how everything gaine ...more

K.C. Tansley’s Unbelievables series captured my imagination when I reviewed the first book in the series two years ago. Now, with the second book, The Girl who Saved Ghosts, I feel like I’m revisiting old friends. They’ve grown and changed a bit since our last meeting, but Kat and Evan are still brave, kind, and a little bit reckless, the way we all wish we could be.

Kat, I felt, was the most changed, since her decision to allow ghosts back into her life is literally draining the life from her, b

Wow, wow, wow!! This was a fantastic sequel to The Girl Who Ignored Ghosts! I was happy to have both books so that I could read them back to back because I absolutely loved the world that Ms. Tansley created in the first novel.

The story begins by Kat being bombarded by ghosts looking for their reckonings so they can move on and not stay tied to this world. They all seem to be terrified of the Dark One who has made issued a death threat against Kat.

She receives help from an unlikely source, her dad’s family, a man whom she has never met.
She must travel back in time, with her friend Evan, to find a dagger if she has any hope of defeating the Dark One.

Kat has been in a struggle since they came home from Castle Creighton. She's been constantly hounded by ghosts who are lining up for the chance to get their "reckoning", or their final piece before they can move on. They're lining up waiting to talk to her which is sapping her of all her strength. It leaves her helpless and weakened which is not good because of what fate has in store for them.
