    A great end to a wonderful series!

    Beyond the Grave is the last book in the series, and I am going to miss it! That being said, this book was not my favorite of the series. While it was still a great read, it seemed to lack a little of the punch the previous installments had. For the epic conclusion of the series, I think I expected a little more action and, while there was action, I just think the story would have felt fuller with more. There was such a build up throughout the previous novels and novellas that it left me feeling a little like some key scenes had been cut. There was also a bit less of the romance that the others stories had, and I missed those emotional pieces of the story.

    One thing that I very much did like was the author's ability to bring in bits of the back story of the series without going off point or dragging down the pace of the story. The flashbacks were worked into the storyline in a way that allowed the reader to understand or remember situations from previous books without a complete retelling of a scene. All in all, one of my favorite young adult, paranormal series.

    The latest Charlotte Silver teen paranormal investigative thriller is an entertaining tale

    Being part of the almost famous Silver paranormal investigative family, teenager Charlotte enjoyed her life though her older sister Annalise was considered the sensitive. All that changed when the Watcher attacked her mom Karen leaving her in a coma (see One Hundred Candles). Her father Patrick has ended his paranormal research spending all his time at the bedside of his wife. Their cameraman Shane, like a brother to her dad, has not been able to get him to move on.

    Charlotte whose hand was scarred and still feels guilt over the Watcher incident four months ago has a new concern. Shane has filled in the leadership gap to complete a contract left void by Charlotte's parents. He uses Charlotte's boyfriend Noah to film a reenactment. However, Noah seems different and distant. She is worried about what happened when they were paranormally assaulted as a bruise he received remains though somewhat faded. Charlotte fears her Noah has been possessed perhaps by the Watcher.

    The latest Charlotte Silver teen paranormal investigative thriller (see Haunting the Night and Past Midnight) is an entertaining tale with a super late twist. Although similar in tone to One Hundred Candles, fans will enjoy Charlotte's escapades as she struggles in her angst-laden life made worse by what has happened and is happening to her loved ones. Young adult readers will appreciate Marla Purnhagen's teen urban fantasy.
