Beyond the Grave by Mara Purnhagen

Publisher: Harlequin Teen

Published: August 23, 2011

In the conclusion to the Past Midnight series, there are a lot of unknowns that still need to be figured out. Charlotte is still recovering from the attack that happened to her and her family three months ago. Everything has changed since then. She missed out on prom.  She’s going to a local community college instead of going out of state, her mother is still in a coma, but at least she still has her boyfriend Noah. But lately Noah  have been very secretive and seems to be pulling away. It

When strange things start happening and Noah disappears, Charlotte must find out what’s happening and fix it before another disaster falls on her and those around her. She must fight the paranormal and get her life back, she is done moping and waiting around for things to change back to normal.

Personal Thoughts: 

What a great conclusion to the Past Midnight series! There was so much action packed into this novel it’s crazy. The author did a good job of incorporating the other two books into this one with little tidbits to inform the reader of something that happened in the past. A reader can pick this book up and not feel like they are missing a piece of the puzzle. One thing that was a shocker for me was the additional characters Michael and Marcus and the the plot twists that happened with them.

The complexities of what was happening to Noah and those around him brought everything together in the end. It was interesting to see that Bliss went from ‘I hate you’ to ‘let’s be friends’ in this book. It shows that some times you can’t judge people and that they have their reasons for being the way they are.

Out of the three books in the series, I think this one is my favorite overall.
