Book Review: Beyond the Grave

I can't move forward with my life, until I know my demons are confined to the past…
Being Charlotte Silver, the daughter of famous paranormal investigators, means my life isn't like that of other teenage girls. Especially after what happened to my parents. Things changed. I missed prom and deferred my big college plans. But I still have my boyfriend, Noah. He's everything I could want—if I can figure out what's up with him. Suddenly Noah is secretive.

I fear it has something to do with what happened to us three months ago. The bruise Noah suffered during a paranormal attack has never completely faded. Now I've learned Noah is researching demons. And when he disappears, it's up to me to find him—before something else does.

Goodreads: 3/5 stars

While I loved, loved, LOVED the previous books in this series, Beyond the Grave was my least favorite. Nothing happened for at least the first 100 pages, and I found myself thinking about other things—homework, watching T.V., reading other books in my TBR pile. I also found some of the plot twists predictable.

I really hated that this just wasn’t my favorite. I wanted that heavenly feeling. You know, the kind you get when a series ends, you sit back and sigh, maybe even smile to yourself? Yeah, that didn’t happen for me. :(

But I do love Charlotte, the Silvers, Noah and everyone else in these books. I think the characters are awesome and I’m glad everything was finally resolved with the Watcher. Mara Purnhagen is a fantastic writer and I’ll read anything she publishes in the future.
