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.

I wish I can say that I liked this book more, but I didn't. I have been following this series from the very beginning. And while the first two books I enjoyed immensely, I felt like this book did nothing but repeat itself. Another haunting, more dealing with drama with friends, and boyfriend drama. I was hoping that I get more different element in this book. I still love the paranormal aspect to it but of course wanted something new added as well. What I liked most about this book are the characters. The main character, Charlotte has come a long way from where she started. She is much more confident in herself and her abilities. She no longer hides in the shadow of her sister. I loved how strong she is and does not give up. She knows what she wants and goes for it. Though you do see her slide a bit, but it makes her characters much more approachable. The plot of this book is my only gripe. I do like how the reader got to see more of the Watcher and great paranormal aspect. I was just tired of seeing the same fight. You know what I mean? I hoped for a bigger or better fight. Something different in it. I also enjoyed the great family dynamic in it. This family has been through it all. They manged to stick together and not give up. A great paranormal book with great characters, you want to read this book! If have started this series or have followed it from the beginning, you see the growth of Charlotte and who she is meant to be. Ms. Purnhagen did a good job on closing all the lose ends, and giving the reader a very satisfying ending!

Purnhagen is back with the third installment in her Past Midnight series and I have to say that I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I've been waiting for it to come out for the better part of a year, since I stumbled upon the series and read Past Midnight and One Hundred Candles-then reading the in-between novellas to tide myself over: Raising the Dead, and Haunting the Night. In my opinion, Purnhagen is a very gifted storyteller, capturing the reader through the fast-paced action that begins on the very first page. The beautiful writing, including imagery and other figurative language, also helps keep the reader immersed in the story, and I love being swept away by a scary, mysterious ghost story. Beyond the Grave continues the story of Charlotte, picking up where the series originally left off, and I love that, even without reading any novels prior to this third installment, Purnhagen presents the story in such a way that the reader can follow, and understand, exactly what is happening (though doing it this way will give away some spoilers). This novel is like a rollercoaster ride, moving quickly from action to action, yet not leaving the reader behind, by any means. It is very well written, and I am always shocked by how well Purnhagen is able to make all the details fit, even ones that seem miniscule, bringing them to the forefront later on within the novel. I really enjoyed this novel and recommend the series to everyone, young and old alike as this series is a lot of fun! Four stars.

This was the seconnd book that I have read in this series. I would love to read the others. It stands alone, but does mention things from the other books. The book starts with Charoltte saying,"I never should have sent my boyfriend to the electric chair." Noah is strapped to a electric chair at Southern Penitentiary. They are are vidio taping at the closed prison to finsh the DVD for thier work. Mr. Pate is the prison historian says it is not hard to sit in the chair. So they hooked him up but he could not spend even 5 minutes. Charoltte's mom has been in a coma for over 3 months since the attack by a watcher. She is in a long term care center. It has been getting harder for Charoltte to see her mom. She has been getting panic attacks since the attack when she hears loud banging noises. Charoltte's dad is spending even some nights at care center. So she has hid the panic attacks from him. Shane and Noah's mom are planning their wedding. Shane is also trying to finsh the dvd since her parents cant do it by the time the contract says. Shayne is her uncle. Noah is Charoltte boyfriend. Noah has been sleep walking and lying to everyone about what he has been doing lately. Michael is new guy Charoltte met who is a protector assigned to her and her mother to fight the watcher (is a evil spirit of someone that takes possesion of another and is hard to stop.)when he comes back. The story keeps my attention did not want to stop reading last night but had to finsh it this morning. I would love to read more books in this series. I was involved in the story and wanted to find out what was really going on with Noah and If her mom ever came out of the comma. I was given this ebook in exchange for honest review.

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. Harriet Klausner
