Description:



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 filled with magic.

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 knows 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.



Beyond is a Young Adult Paranormal Romance and the first book in Willow Rose's popular Afterlife-series.

4.0 out of 5 stars Beyond--T.P Boje March 4, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
My Opinion:

Beyond is a whole new world that explains what happens to people after they die. It's a creative read that shows people exactly what happens when you start messing with other people's destiny. Mehgan is a brave, caring girl that just wants to help, but you know what they say about good intentions: The road to hell is paved with good intentions.

The Good:

Beyond was an easy book to peruse, due to the delightfully descriptive prose. T.P Boje did an excellent job at making sure every image she tried to portray was accurate and clear. I really enjoyed her way with words.
The whole Spirit world is so original (except The Academy), but we'll get to that later), I have never heard dying explained quite like that before. The whole idea that people die and go to school to learn how to survive as ghosts is so new and intriguing; that was one of the novels main draws for me, when I started it.
When Meghan was taken by Mick to see how ghosts are taken by other Spirits to join them in the Afterlife, my favorite part the lady that was in a car accident was allowed a second part at life. It was another very unique way of explaining how people come back to life after their hearts stop.
I loved the part about Michael Jackson. I cracked up when a kid in Mehgan's year at The Academy asked the teacher if, since he saw MJ, does that mean he's innocent? Hilarious, T.P.
Rahmiel is a favorite, as well. She sounds so adorable and kind (which would make since, as she is an Angel...), I kinda wish she was real, so I could give her a big, cuddly, hug.
Funny quote:

"Where are your rabbits?" I asked him.
"Where they always are," he said with a smile.
"Making more rabbits?"
"You said it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good book November 3, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
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.

1.0 out of 5 stars Wish I had just read the free preview. November 16, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Definitely not what I expected. The premise is cool. The cover art is gorgeous. My first problem was when the main character refers to this being a book. I don't like books or movies wherein the writer has to point this fact out. This annoyed me but I went on.

Spoilerish comments follow.

First, we have our newly dead heroine who has no clue where she came from, or how she got there. One presumes that this mystery will be cleared up.

Meghan's Afterlife begins with finding herself on an outmoded form of transportation, to wit: a steamboat. (As I continured to read, I thought, it should have been a train.) The newly dead are called Ru'ach. BTW, after this initial bit of information, the term Ru'ach seems to have been replaced by the term students. It annoys me when an author doesn't use their own universe's terminology correctly or consistently.

A tall lady spirit introduces herself as a teacher at the Academy of the Spiritual Realm. The train, excuse me, boat, took all our newly dead, aka students, to a castle where a tall man with a beard called out "New students, follow me" and he leads them to the door. Did I mention there are twins? Mischievous Twins? Anyway, the newbies are led to a door and are met by a tall woman and introduced by Hagrid. I mean, by the tall un-named man with a beard. After arriving at the castle/school. The headmaster wore a long white robe and had long white hair and beard and told the students they must be sorted. I had to read that twice. Yep. Sorted. It said sorted.

The castle has no stairways, because spirits don't need stairs. There is a magic bell that students can use to summon help but are warned against unnamed, dire consequences if they ring it unnecesarily.

3.0 out of 5 stars A quick read with a great story. February 4, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
There's the age-old question "What makes a book, the writing or the story?" Most of the time, I say that both components are essential to creating a book worth reading, but sometimes elaborate prose that flow off the page and twist your mind are overwhelming and you just want to be told a good story. That's what it was my experence reading Beyond. The writing was not bad, please do not misunderstand me, but it wasn't particularly stunning. Some of the dialogue was stilted and there could have been a lot more details, but the book was quick and refreshing and told a story that was interesting.

The world was set up very decently. I still have some questions, but there are more books in the series and I can't expect (or even want, really) all the worldbuilding in the first book. There were a few things I found slightly unbelievable or inconsistent, but in the end, those things didn't matter. I also found a few things to be slightly similar to the world set up in Harry Potter. Not exactly the same, but just similar. That's not a bad thing, persay, but it subtracts from the originality, obviously.

Now the plot and main storyline were what I really adored. I loved reading about this whole new life after death and I liked how the characters in this novel didn't just turn into all-knowing being when they died. Instead they have to attend an academy, no matter how old, where they learn special things like how to fly or walk through walls. The religious aspects in this book are there, but not preachy or overwhelming. There are good spirits and there are bad, and the good must continuously fight the bad spirits' influence. There are hints and talk about an ancient war and Heaven and I'm hoping there are more of those things in the next books--in the same nonpreachy way, of course.
