Blog Tour: The Girl Who Saved Ghosts

About the Book:
Title: The Girl Who Saved Ghosts
Author: K.C. Tansley
Publication date: October 17th 2017
Genres: Mystery, Time-Travel, Young Adult

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 traveling 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.

Author Bio:
K.C. Tansley lives with her warrior lapdog, Emerson, and two quirky golden retrievers on a hill somewhere in Connecticut. She tends to believe in the unbelievables—spells, ghosts, time travel—and writes about them.
Never one to say no to a road trip, she’s climbed the Great Wall twice, hopped on the Sound of Music tour in Salzburg, and danced the night away in the dunes of Cape Hatteras. She loves the ocean and hates the sun, which makes for interesting beach days. The Girl Who Ignored Ghosts is her award-winning and bestselling first novel in The Unbelievables series.
As Kourtney Heintz, she also writes award winning cross-genre fiction for adults.

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 Girl Who Saved Ghosts is an excellent addition to The Unbelievables series, and makes me want the third book right away! With richly described characters and a more in-depth look at the spirit world, this novel has everything you could want in a sequel!

One of the things I loved about the first novel was the rich storytelling and how intriguing Ms. Tansley made the spirit world. I didn't think it was possible, but she made me love the world she created even more! She delves further into the spirit world as well as the curses and legacies surrounding the 4 families. I love how things are tying together and it makes me even more excited for the third book. While I didn't love the time travel aspect as much as I did in the last book, I still enjoyed it quite a bit. I think the reason though was because I was so interested in what was going on in the present with the characters! Kat and Evan learn more about their respective family and Kat explores the extent of her "powers." And when an unexpected character shows up, I really wanted to see the interaction between him and Kat. 

One of the things that I had a little bit of a problem with in the first book was the lack of character development for the main characters. However, this was completely resolved in this book! Kat is fleshed out a bit more and we start understanding her perspective on things. She is still very relatable, but I connected with her more this time. I do want to learn more about Evan though. He's still a bit mysterious, but his true colors are starting to come through, and let's just say I'm now shipping Kat and Evan even harder than I was in the first book (who knew that would be possible??). I love how protective Evan is of Kat while still giving her the space to embrace her "powers" and be her own person. 

While I do wish that we would have seen more of Morgan and some of the other characters, this book really was about Kat and Evan learning more about their families and histories. But hopefully we see more of Morgan in the next book because I adore her character.

This is such a fantastic series and has all the right elements of a perfect paranormal read. Ms. Tansley's writing is even better than in the first novel, and the story is addicting from page 1. I highly recommend checking out this book (especially since it's almost Halloween and who doesn't love a good ghost story in October!).

Happy reading :)
