Many times a sequel to a book lacks the magic that we fell in love with in the first, this is not the case with Prom Night in Purgatory. This beautifully written sequel to Slow Dance in Purgatory not only lives up to the first book, but in fact may surpass it. The book continues where the first book left off. I don't want to give spoilers away for either book so I wont say exactly where that is. But its perfectly done. One thing I loved about this book was the glimpses into the 50s. We got to know Johnny in this book in a different way than we did in the first. I also felt the extent of the feelings that Maggie and Johnny have for one another. Many times I found my heart beating harder during scenes where I can only imagine the characters hearts were barely being kept into their chests. Once again Amy Harmon has put out a beautiful book. I couldn't put it down. I hope I can continue to read many books by this amazing author. She has a way of keeping you glued to the book, not wanting to put it down. The book stays with you when its over. While I know this is the end of this book series and the end of the story of Johnny and Maggie, for now... I can't wait to read what other adventures Ms. Harmon can send me on.

4-stars — Huh, the book went in slightly different directions than I was expecting! I really didn’t expect the time travel-ish aspect to the story! No, that’s a lie. I knew there had to be something b/c of the hints at the end of the previous book. But I didn’t expect it to take up so much space in the narrative I guess. Or maybe I just didn’t expect the way everything would play out. I grew increasingly concerned as the book went on about how it was going to end. You guys have no idea how hard it was to resist skipping to the end to find out…SO HARD. I’m glad I didn’t though, b/c it added to the reading experience to feel that stress and concern. And all in all I was happy with the ending, though I wanted a bit more epilogue…it felt a bit fast and I needed more wrap up I think. The book was still written in third person omniscient, but it didn’t bother me as much b/c I was anticipating it. I was able to settle into the style. I still loved both Maggie and Johnny, though they go through some pretty crazy trials in this one…the universe really did try to mess with them. I felt for Maggie when faced with the suddenly alive Johnny. And I felt for Johnny’s utter confusion and devastation. I don’t want to get into it and give away spoilers, but as much as I was frustrated by their emotions/attitudes sometimes, I also truly understood them. And I truly loved some of their great romance scenes. Both prom nights were swoony for me, I truly loved them. I also really loved getting to meet some new secondary characters, especially Lizzie. She was hilarious. I enjoyed seeing some of the little side plots that spun out of their time machinations. I will admit that I was a bit bummed that we got basically no resolution with Shad, and only little bits with Gus. As I said above, I wanted a better wrap up for the ending. Not just the happiness stuff, but I felt like the whole Rodger plot was left unresolved…particularly the shadow stuff. I NEED ANSWERS!!! So yeah. This is a very sporadic and odd review for me. For some reason I had a harder time figuring out what I wanted to say, but I’ve decided not to stress it! I definitely enjoyed this conclusion to Maggie and Johnny’s story, I just wanted a bit more at the end.
