She tried to ignore them. But some things
wonâ€™t be ignored.
Kat Preston doesnâ€™t believe in ghosts. Not because sheâ€™s
never seen one, but because she saw one too many. Refusing
to believe is the only way to protect herself from the ghost
that tried to steal her life. Katâ€™s disbelief keeps her safe
until her junior year at McTernan Academy, when a research
project for an eccentric teacher takes her to a tiny,
private island off the coast of Connecticut.
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. Evanâ€™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 thatâ€™s all before Katâ€™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 timeâ€”and their own bodiesâ€”before their
souls slip away forever.
