Review of One Hundred Candles by Mara Purnhagen

One Hundred Candles (Past Midnight, #2)One Hundred Candles by Mara Purnhagen

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is the sequel to Past Midnight, but could be read as a stand alone book.

There is a darker edge to this one compared to Past Midnight. Charlotte has some pretty heavy stuff to deal with- parental problems, relationship problems and a demon that is following her!

Despite this there is something refreshing and light about this series. Ms Purnhagen deals with these issues without overdramatising, keeping them realistic and believable. Charlottes reactions to events are believable and she is -as much as possible- a normal, likable girl.

The ending is not quite a cliffhanger but does make me interested enough to look out for the next in the series to see what will happen.

I enjoyed this story just as much as the first. It is a quick, interesting read and suitable for younger teens.
