The Girl Who Ignored Ghosts (The Unbelievables #1)
The site of a grisly mystery, the Isle of Acacia is no place for a girl who ignores ghosts, but the ghosts leave Kat little choice. Accompanied by her research partner, Evan Kingsley, she investigates the disappearance of Cassie Mallory and Sebastian Radcliffe on their wedding night in 1886. Evan’s scientific approach to everything leaves Kat on her own to confront a host of unbelievables: ancestral curses, powerful spells, and her strange connection to the ghosts that haunt Castle Creighton. But that’s all before Kat’s yanked through a magic portal and Evan follows her.
When the two of them awaken 129 years in the past with their souls trapped inside the bodies of two wedding guests, everything changes. Together, Kat and Evan race to stop the wedding-night murders and find a way back to their own time—and their own bodies—before their souls slip away forever.
Kat ignores ghosts. In her childhood she embraced her power and acknowledged that she could help the lost souls around her. A possession left her scared and she was forced to forget about them in order to keep safe. Now however, as she researches the death of a young couple for school with a group of knowledgable classmates, she gets sucked back into the supernatural world. Suddenly the ghosts are back and if she wants to keep her friends safe, she has to acknowledge the ghosts again.
This was a very engaging, beautifully written story that I couldn't put down! I fell into the story quickly and ended up loving every interaction. History, romance, mystery. The author brilliantly wove a tale of a centries long murder finally being solved through supernatural means. A tale bound to leave you shivering from the darkness and evil within, it truly is hard to put down.
New friendships blossom in this story, and I enjoyed how the author did it. They couldn't stand each other at first, as one seemed to think the other didn't work for anything, just had it handed to them. That changed after they were both thrust back in time, left in bodies that don't belong to them when a murder is soon to happen. They learn to be there for each other, trust and accept each other. It was lovely.
This is a great book that I definitly reccomend!
The farther the story goes along, we see how much the past and present are intertwined. In both past and present we see betrayal and hurt, curses, and of course many unbelievables. The idea of the unbelievables was fresh and original. The characters were very relatable, and the more I read, I felt like they were old friends of mine. I couldn't put this book down, with all the twists and turns, I couldn't wait to see what more would be revealed about the night of the murder and how it affected the present. This books is something everyone would enjoy reading, no matter what their age. I definitely believe in the unbelievables and I can't wait to see what happens in the next book! Maybe some romance between Kat and Evan, and of course more riveting plot twists! Love this book!
