Let me set the record straight. My name is Charlotte Silver and I'm not one of those paranormal-obsessed freaks you see on TV…no, those would be my parents, who have their own ghost-hunting reality show. And while I'm usually roped into the behind-the-scenes work, it turns out that I haven't gone unnoticed. Something happened on my parents' research trip in Charleston—and now I'm being stalked by some truly frightening other beings. Trying to fit into a new school and keeping my parents' creepy occupation a secret from my friends—and potential boyfriends—is hard enough without having angry spirits whispering in my ear.

All I ever wanted was to be normal, but with ghosts of my past and present colliding, now I just want to make it out of high school alive…

Short & Sweet: Past Midnight was exactly what I was looking for. A fun, fast paranormal read. Looking at the outside, I was surprised at how short it was. At 216 pages, Past Midnight is more than meets the eye. Not overtly scary but paranormal enough to satisfy my paranormal craving. The characters were engaging. The plot was different, in a completely amazing way. And the romance did not follow the stereotypical formula that I feared it might.
Final Verdict: I want more of this series… right now! Purnhagen hit it out of the park with this one. I loved almost everything about it. Past Midnight toes along the edge of being creepy without going over into the too scary zone. No need for night lights for this one. Purnhagen definitely has a fan in me with this amazing series. Cannot wait to get my hands on the next installment.
