"Some mysteries were built so intricately, it took centuries to unravel them. Castle Creighton waited over a century for its chance." Author KC Tansley

Kat Preston grew up from a babe around ghosts and they became a normal part of her life until nine years of age when a sinister ghost inhabits her body while she's sick. Only with the help of another ghost named Toria, is she able to get the ghost out of her body and is told she has to become an unbeliever and needs to surround herself with the same kind of people since ghosts can only break through into the world of the living by being around strong believers.

While growing up around ghosts, she learned a bit of their world including that they are not troubled souls waiting to be crossed over. Most wanted what they call a reckoning which is what she provided, but ghosts are only a piece of soul shattered by death that is left behind. The rest of the soul is reincarnated and shards that splinter off of the ghost chunk become what are known as spirits.

Now eight years later, she realizes that she can no longer ignore the ghosts and can no longer run from them when she is given a research paper on the double murder mystery of the Sebastian Radcliffe and Cassie Mallory at Castle Creighton near Wright, Connecticut on the Aisle of Acacia and has to try to solve it for a university professor teaching at her prep school, Mc Ternan Academy. The paper receives a great grade and she is reminded her summer will be taken up with more research on location at Castle Creighton as part of a team that includes: TA Seth, her best friend Morgan, and Seth, a university student along with the remaining Radcliffe heir. But when she gets to the castle, nothing is as it seems and the ghosts will no longer be ignored.

This book was absolutely amazing! The storyline and plot were well-written and well-developed as well as having amazing complexity with so many twists and turns that this professional reviewer never saw coming. They kept me on the edge of my seat the whole roller coaster ride through the story until the very end. This is not a book you can read small parts of each night, it is book that will hook you to the point where you will have to read it all in one sitting. The characters were believable, realistic and complex in an atmosphere that makes them question everything, everyone and even their own sanity at times. The back story was perfect in how it was injected into the story itself. The scenes were descriptive and easy to visualize as were the characters' physical appearances, dialogue, demeanors and behaviors. The elements of the supernatural or paranormal, whichever you choose to call it, were elegantly deployed too.

Overall, Author KC Tansley has written an engaging story that will immediately hook and draw the reader right into her world of mystery, suspense, intrigue, romance, betrayal, curses, spells and the paranormal along with its many twists and turns that can't be foreseen in a place where nothing is as it first appears. I know one thing for sure, I have found a new favorite author and cannot wait to read more books by this amazing and brilliant author!!
