Summary: It's taken a long time for me to feel like a normal teenager. But now that I'm settled in a new school, where people know me as more than Charlotte Silver of the infamous Silver family paranormal investigators, it feels like everything is falling into place. And what better way to be normal than to go on a date with a popular football star like Harris Abbott? After all, it's not as if Noah is anything more than a friend….
But my new life takes a disturbing turn when Harris brings me to a party and we play a game called One Hundred Candles. It seems like harmless, ghostly fun. Until spirits unleashed by the game start showing up at school. Now my friends and family are in very real danger, and the door that I've opened into another realm may yield deadly consequences.

Review: Charlotte and her ghost-hunting parents are back in this amazing tale of ghosts, romance and some scary moments!

Have I sold you yet? If not just trust me, you don't want to miss the second installment in the Past Midnight series. Because One Hundred Candles was even better than the first book.

My admiration grows for Charlotte each time I read about her. She's a very strong character and like I said I really admire her. I believe she has some amazing qualities about herself and she's always growing, changing, developing some more.

I'm in love with the slight creep factor in these books! There are some intense moments where I was just a little scared...but not too scared. Purnhagen gets you scared but doesn't over do it. There was some awesome supernatural stuff going on in this one. I say "stuff" because I really don't want to spoil how awesome it really is.

And then we have a little developing romance. It was super cute. I love high school mixed with supernatural, especially in this series. High School is SO well done and believable. I love the characters and the school so much that I'd even consider going there just to me friends with Charlotte, Avery and Noah.

This series gives me so much pleasure from reading it and with some twists and turns all during the book I'm dying to read the next one!

Rating: 4.5 stars
