The Girl Who Saved Ghosts by K.C. Tansley
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
5 Cranky stars
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. Without reading the first book, you'll be lost.
Kat is returning for her senior year of high school followed by ghosts who want their reckoning. Given that she only recently re-accepted the existence of Unbelievables, she works towards helping when she can. That is, of course, until she discovers that a malevolent force called the Dark One is out to destroy her. She then decides to travel to Dumbarton to find answers. With the help of Evan, and two great aunts she only recently found out existed, she fine tunes her powers as a priestess (what a witch is called in this world) and attempts to solve yet another murder mystery while trying to save herself.
Traveling back in time to 1831 Vienna, Kat and Evan learn more about Kat's family and the relationship between all of the families mentioned in the first book. But will they find what Kat needs in time and get out of the past alive?
Just like the first book this is a super fun ride. The time traveling aspect of it is well done and keeps your interest so well you feel like you're actually a part of that world. The characters are well written and perfectly developed. The grammar, writing style, and flow of the story are near perfection. I'd definitely recommend this book to anyone looking for a fun and engulfing read.
