This book blew me away. Once I began reading it, I just couldn't put it down. Michelle Harrison is excellent at hiding the truth from you until she is ready for you to hear it. There were elements that I really didn't see coming and I really should have. The story builds at a slow pace, which adds to the tension as you become desperate to find out what is happening to Elliott. As the book progressed, I had to finish reading it in daylight, as some of the scenes really did freak me out.

Past Lives, a living and working museum really came to life for me.The author made the village accessible to her readers; I felt I could walk down the streets and be able to name all the buildings and which ghosts haunted them. I have visited a similar museum and I really felt Michelle had captured its essence in exquisite detail.

Elliot was an excellent character, right from the start you want him to discover the truth and learn to deal with everything happening to him. He wasn't perfect and I think that is why I liked him so much. Before his accident, he really had been one of those boys your mother always told you to avoid, yet the accident changed him, opened his eyes and his emotions to the world. You could see how he looked up to his brother, yet he soon realises that the people you love the most are not are not infallible.

The blossoming romance between Ophelia and Elliott was beautiful, yet edgy. Each hiding a difficult past they still haven't learnt to live with. They both have flaws, neither one perfect, yet they still fell in love with each other. The scenes between them were quite breathtaking.

There is something very British about they way Michelle writes, no fancy and far fetched ideas, the writing is realistic and gritty.

I loved this novel a really good supernatural mystery. After an accident Elliott died for two minutes and he is left with a supernatural gift. When he meets Ophelia they grow closer after he rescues her from an altercation, they grow closer and secrets are revealed and further mysteries ensue, A really good novel, very unusual and a departure from her previous novels which were also excellent/

This is a book for older teens, rather than the all-ages Thirteen Treasures series. It's a satisfying ghost story, with a well thought out ending, sympathetic characters, and a believable (for a ghost story) plot. Elliott, aged 17, has had an accident when he briefly "died", and since then he can see ghosts. At first he is terrified - and so is the reader - but then he decides to confront his problem by actively seeking out a haunted place. He goes to work in an open-air museum, which does ghost tours, and does indeed have more scary experiences, but also falls in love with an enigmatic girl who works at the museum. Gradually he comes to believe that the ghosts want to communicate with him to ask his help, and this leads him to uncover their stories, which are fascinating and plausible. One ghost in particular, though, seems intent on taking over his body - and his girlfriend, and this leads to a nail-biting ending for this well-written book.

I'll start this review by saying that I LOVE Michelle Harrison! Everything she's written so far has been just simply incredible. From The Thirteen Treasures, to The Thirteen Curses and The Thirteen Secrets, till now, with Unrest, she just knows how to hook you right from the very start.

Unrest is the tale of Elliot Drake. He's seventeen, and a few months ago, he nearly lost his life in a car accident. Just when he thought he'd be able to get back to some sense of normality, it all goes horribly, horribly wrong. He starts seeing things, things he wishes that he couldn't. It all happens when he sleeps. He see's his poor, defenceless body, and he's powerless to stop the dead that want to take it over.

I will say, that this book is not for the faint-hearted. It is downright terrifying. I even had to stop reading at a few points, because it was nearing bed time and I wanted a good nights sleep, nightmare, and hopefully ghost free! The images, the ghosts themselves. The bathtub... I'll say no more, other than SCARY! However, the fact remains that once you start, you just can't stop!

What I love about the book is its reality. Yes, we're dealing with ghosts - there are those that believe, and those that brush it off as tricks of the mind, but there's more to the book than just that. The characters are all well fleshed out. I love that Elliot isn't perfect. He's far from it. He's had his troubles, he's got a bit of a reputation with the ladies, and he's not exactly going to be awarded a Son of the Year award, but that's what makes him so loveable. He's flawed, just like everyone else, so he is fairly easy to relate to.

Michelle's writing as always is brilliant. Rich, engaging - the voice in this book is just perfect!

I'd heard a lot of praise for Michelle Harrison's The Thirteen Treasures series for younger readers and so was excited to hear that she planned to venture into YA with this standalone novel Unrest and it only took me until the end of chapter one to realize what all the fuss was about. The first chapter completely sucked me in, Michelle Harrison has this atmospheric way of describing what's happening that sent a chill down my spine. Her writing is suitably creepy and suspenseful and I became absorbed in this book from the start longing for the next chilling scene to get my next terror fuelled buzz and to find out exactly what was going on with Elliott and what happened to give him his strange abilities.

When Elliott is in an accident that actually clinically kills him for all of two minutes and is resuscitated by paramedics and brought back to life he finds himself somehow newly connected to the spirit world. Elliott's experiences with sleep paralysis chilled me to the bone. Sleep paralysis is a sleeping disorder I hadn't heard of prior to reading this book and I found it a fascinating albeit terrifying illness to read about. The way that Michelle Harrison connected the condition to a ghost story made Unrest something new and exciting to read. Whilst at its heart this book is a ghost story it also reads as part contemporary romance and part mystery too. When Elliott wasn't fighting off spirits trying to enter his sleeping body he also has a budding romance with his co-worker Ophelia developing, and had to learn the history and ghost stories of Past Lives the living museum where he's recently started to work. There are also the mysteries of the ghosts that haunt Elliott that he has to solve in order for them to move on.
