"Meghan is 16 when she dies.
She wakes up on a flying steamboat on her way to a school run by Angels in a white marble castle. On the boat she meets Mick who has been dead for more than a hundred years but still looks like a teenager. He helps her past the difficult beginning at the new school in a new world. One day some of Meghan's roommates find a mirror in the cellar of the school and they persuade her to go through it with them - well knowing it is strictly against the rules of the school. Meghan ends up back on earth where she meets Jason. But Jason is in danger and Meghan know something important. Something that is a matter of life and death. Soon she is forced to choose between the two worlds. The one she belongs to now and the one she left."
I wanted a different type of book to read, so this is a refresher. I really like how everything fit well together, even with the consequences.
What I enjoyed most about this book is the great plot. We have a young girl who dies and is now in training. She learns about what she can do as a ghost, including helping the living. This is the part that I like most. I love that she had a heart of compassion to help others. But, also the consequences of what happen when you mess with fate. She learns it the hard way and this is where I want to see her grow. She adapted fast and made of her mind of what to do.
Now, the love interest. It's where I want it to be. I'm hoping that she be able to find someone to a friend to her. I'm hoping as the series goes on, we see Meghan find her true love. Though, I think she already found it. She just doesn't know it yet
I really love how in the end it all made sense. Every single part of the story had a bigger part to it. I loved watching and feeling Meghan emotions and thoughts goes through my head.
Beyond is a great start in the series. I really enjoyed stepping into Meghan shoes and following along with her. This series has great potential and I love to see where it goes. Beyond is a great story.
I give it 3 BITES!
