I received a copy of this book free from the author, no strings attached. However, I have been reading horror for a while, so I checked this out.

As the author gave this away for members of her email list, I started it. When I thanked her, I mentioned this CAN be read as a standalone book, which surprised her. (If you are kind to authors, the are kind back!) However, I have now downloaded the first one because there were just enough clues in this one to make me want to read the series.

After reading the first book yesterday and rating it similarly, I'm really not sure why I started reading this one today. (On finishing this one, I immediately started the last one thats on my Kindle) Its absurd as I find the whole premise to be so flawed & the comparisons with Harry Potter & Twilight to be ridiculously obvious....but why do I keep coming back?? I must enjoy it more than I am admitting to myself! The parts which are totally unique and inventive I really enjoy, like the r ...more

Same as the previous book...not much happening. I saw today though, that this book is great for readers around the age of 9. That could work...for 20+ I can not recommend it.

"The Afterlife Mission"

This is a paranormal story about life after death. The three main characters are Meghan, Mick, and Jason. Even though this is a book recommended for young adults, it's also a fascinating read for adults. Events here are very enthralling. Megan is in her afterlife and is being schooled how to ride Pegasus through severe storms. Mick is becoming a friend to her, and they're relationship may blossom further. Jason is her earthling ex-boyfriend who needs her help. She's always

This is a YA series of 4 books: Beyond, Serenity, Endurance, and Courageous. With that in mind, I'll say I really enjoyed them and found the subject matter and story progression original and very well written. Unfortunately, there were massive editing problems on the Kindle Unlimited copies I read, and that detracted from the read.

I have an interest in the afterlife from a very loosely-based Christian context and would think writing about would be pretty difficult. The story did not seem forced

I have to agree with Charlotte goodreads review (

I also really hate the relationship aspect in this book. I mean really hate it... I don't like either Jason or Mick... The hate Jason and I hate how Meghan is hung up on him. I hate how Meghan seems to be with Mick just because it better than being alone... I hate how Mick acts AND the engagement was just a joke, Plus how Mick thought that gave him the right on how to tell Meghan what to do... ARGHHHH!

Once Upon a Twilight
First I want to say how much I love the cover of this book. The colors, purple and white, on a black background spin around and look like some kind of electric tornado. Very cool!

In Serenity, Meghan starts her 2nd year of school. She and her class are learning how to fly on Pegasus' and fly through severe storms. She becomes closer with Mick and longs to visit Jason, hoping there is something she can do to help him. she essentially saved his life in the last book because she knew something bad w

One word pretty much sums up this book and that is "ugh." While there were (very few) interesting and exciting parts, most of it was pretty boring. I find the characters really one dimensional. Again, like the first book, the ideas are there but the execution wasn't.

And, unlike the first book, where I didn't care about the love story or who Meghan "chooses," I can officially say I HATE Mick. There is nothing hot, redeeming, or cute about him. I want to gag whenever he is around. SO bored.

I quite liked this book which is most suitable for the YA audience. The start was good and made me want to read on. I think that perhaps care needs to be made with the storyline, as I found myself making several comparisons to the Harry Potter series. For instance the teacher who prefers living and working in the forest who has a wolf and teaches the pupils about flying horses (Hagrid?). The pupil who can change into a creature of the night (Sirius/ Lupin etc). The magic invisibility stone (Harr ...more

Very disappointing after book 1. I loved book 1's exploration of the afterlife and being a spirit. The angels have been dumbed down in this book, not nearly as wise as written in book 1. This one loses the appeal due to the focus on the love story between the 16 year old spirit and a possessive 100 year old spirit (again a character that seemed to have lost about 50 IQ points since the first book).

Again, it has very heavy overtones to Harry Potter. We continue in the book to watch Megan deal with her afterlife. The cliche relationship between one girl and two very different boys also has me often thinking of Twilight. The true story of life continuing after we die, with hard choices and crazy adventures keep me reading.

This book was just as good as the first and I absolutely cannot wait to finish the third!
I will still recommend for our paranormal readers and any age starting with tweens.
I can't think of anything I really wasn't pleased with in the story. I just hope to find out what happens and what happened to our little spirit Meghan, so I am on to the next in line now.

Greeat story of the after life. All three are totally worth reading. Not my normal type of book, but me and my daughter really enjoyed it. Makes you wonder what life after human death is really all about. Sad and happy all the same to learn how she truly died and life after human death is just a new beginning.

This was a wonderful sequel. Every bit as good as the first book in the series. Now on to the third one - I am really excited to see what happens next. I can recommend this to anyone who enjoys a good paranormal romance.
