The only negative thing to say is that it ends way too soon! Can haz moar Girl and Ghosts, plz?
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 atmosphere of the book. While reading, you can feel the danger and the urgency. You will actually feel like you’re strolling down the streets of Vienna with Kat and Evan, facing death and danger right along with them. I hope to see more from this series soon, as it has become one of my favorites of all time. I give The Girl Who Saved Ghosts 5 out of 5 stars.
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! 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 time, which is saying something because I don't really like historical-type books, which this definitely has a hint of. I also started reading Clockwork Prince earlier this week, which also takes place in the 1800, so yeah, I've been really enjoying reading about this time period. But I'm definitely not gonna go off and start reading historical fiction any day in the near future. Lol. But I did enjoy this and the supernatural touch it had to it. I guess that's the combo I really like: a little bit of historicalness with a whole of supernatural stuff going on!
Speaking of supernatural (and not my favorite TV show, Supernatural hehehe), I also loved the ghost aspect to this as well! I love the good ol' "I see dead people" trope! However, the one thing that bothered me in the previous book was that Kat didn't believe in ghosts? What?! Well, she obviously believed in them because they were right in front of her face and she could see them with her eyeball, but she kept telling herself that they weren't real or something? Look, I understand why she did it—it kept her safe all those years from evil entities. But still. It was honestly a ridiculous concept. I am so glad that in this book she is embracing her abilities, now that she is learning more about them. She is even helping out these ghosts with their unfinished business... you could say she is saving these ghosts. Hehe.
I also loved seeing Kat develop her powers because she can do so much more than see ghosts! Her abilities are very witch-like, but apparently she is a priestess in this world. Either way, I like that and really enjoyed the magical aspect to it! I also liked the more in depth explanation of the relationship between all four families. It's a really interesting relationship they have. I am very much interested to learn more and what the deal with the Mallorys is.
I really like Kat and absolutely ADORE Evan! I totally didn't remember that Kat and Evan didn't end up together in the last book! WHYYY?! I love them together! But then I re-learned (because I totally forgot) that Kat is only a couple months away of turning 18, so she is still underage, while Evan is 20 years old. And Evan being the amazing, decent human being that he is (and Kat too), has not initiated anything... romantically anyway. But the sexual tension is real and I live for it! I am looking forward to the day when they get together!
But there were a couple of off things in this book for me, unfortunately. First of all, you may have noticed me not remembering a couple of things about the previous book. I read The Girl Who Ignored Ghosts almost exactly TWO years ago, so you can see why I was struggling with recalling certain things about the book. While there was a little bit of a recap of what happened in the previous book, I definitely could've done with more details. Like Seth and Joshua—were they in the last book? Were they important? I mean, I think so, but I don't really remember. Gosh, maybe my memory is just going, going, gone! Lol.
Another thing was that the ending seem to drag out forever. I almost feel like the book should have ended soon after they came back from their, ahem, trip. Granted, I don't know what the next book will be like (because I assume there will be a sequel, right? Right?!) so maybe all that happened in the ending wouldn't fit with the beginning of the next book? I don't know. But I definitely struggled through that.
However, all that did not deter me from my overall enjoyment of this action-packed book! Ghosts and time travel and magical powers... yes please! I am very much looking forward to the future (past?) time travel adventures Kat will have and learning more about the families and this crazy, fun world! Would I recommend this series? YES!
After a tumultuous summer spent investigating a century old murder mystery and discovering her paranormal powers, Kat is looking forward to returning to her predictable, mundane school life. Then the bloodied ghost of a little girl appears, begging Kat to help prove she didn't commit a murder. Additionally, Kat is warned by other ghosts that the Dark One is looking for her. Kat travels to her ancestral home in the hopes of learning more about her gifts and to seek help. Once she and Evan arrive, they discover that the only way to have a future is to again travel to the past.
I have a weakness for time travel adventures and I love Tansley's rather unique spin on the concept, particularly in this novel. It allows the reader to watch history as it unfolds and I enjoyed watching Kat and Evan try to fit all the pieces of the puzzle together. Now that the premise of this series was firmly established in book one, this installment starts to explore the bonds between the families more. I found myself really emotionally invested in the characters from the past. As their story unfolded, I couldn't help but hope that Kat would find a way to change the past.
While Morgan, Kat's best friend, was missing from this novel, we did get to meet some other wonderful characters. Kat's aunts are a study in contrasts and I liked watching her interact with them. I'm still not sure how I feel about Kat and Evan's romantic relationship but I loved how their partnership evolved in this book. It will be interesting to see how their hereditary roles change their relationship in the future. I wasn't a huge fan of the amorphous the Dark One concept but the main villain in this story made up for it. She was wonderfully dark, I love it when the reader can somewhat empathize with the villain of the story.
The Unbelievables is a series that's worth picking up if you're looking for a fun paranormal read full of family curses, magic, and historical fiction. The Girl Who Saved Ghosts was a strong sequel and I'm intrigued to see where Tansley takes the story next.

Magic, murder, ghosts, and time travel part 2.
While this isn't the ideal stand-alone second book, it's a wonderful continuation of the first.Read more
