She tried to ignore them. Now she might risk everything to save them.
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. Then the ghost of a little girl appears and begs Kat for help, and more unquiet apparitions follow. All of them are terrified by the Dark One, and it soon becomes clear that that this evil force wants Kat dead.
Searching for help, Kat leaves school for the ancestral home she’s only just discovered. Her friend Evan, whose family is joined to her own by an arcane history, accompanies her. With the assistance of her eccentric great aunts and a loyal family ghost, Kat soon learns that she and Evan can only fix the present by travelling into the past.
As Kat and Evan make their way through nineteenth-century Vienna, the Dark One stalks them, and Kat must decide what she’s willing to sacrifice to save a ghost.
In the highly anticipated follow-up to K.C. Tansley’s bestselling and award-winning debut, readers find Kat Preston trying to start a normal senior year after a summer spent time traveling, breaking curses, casting spells, and talking to ghosts. Unfortunately for Kat, the ghosts have other ideas…
Sjeez, I’m very happy I’m not Kat. After her first adventures in The Girl who Ignored Ghosts, she kind of directly gets sucked into the next story in this second part of the Unbelievables. To fully understand the story I would recommend to start with the first one in the series.
But KC Tansley certainly knows how to keep the pace up. Now it is up to Kat to go back into time to retrieve an ancient dagger for the Kingsley family. But there are forces out there, who are not amused that Kat has altered the past by resolving the murder on Cassie.
In order to help her defend herself, she leaves with Evan to stay with her two eccentric aunts. After several attacks, Kat and Evan are recovered enough to travel into the nineteenth century and they inhabit the bodies of Ellie Langley and Percy Kingsley. But with a twist here…
Of course, the retrieval of the dagger doesn’t go to smoothly, so Kat and Evan find themselves in several tricky situations. However, throughout the book the total family history of both the Langley, Kingsley and the Radcliffe family is being revealed. Hopefully there will be more books on the other artefacts of the different families. Another five out of five stars for KC Tansley.
