Would you sacrifice everything for a world you barely knew?

It has been over a year since Charlotte and Kevin first stepped through the gate into Energo, and neither has been able to settle back into a normal life.

Even though she tries to deny it, Charlotte is in love with Calvin and can’t push him from her mind. She distracts herself with the antics of James and her growing friendship with Liam—the one person who seems to understand her.

Kevin is starting to adjust to his new identity as a college student and basketball player, but he can’t seem to shake his feelings for Samantha, his fear for Charlotte’s safety or the sensation that basketball is no longer enough.

When they unexpectedly return to Energo, both Charlotte and Kevin must face their fears and step up to become the leaders they were always meant to be.

Have you ever wondered where you go when you die?

Meghan is 16 when it happens to her. 

She wakes up on a flying steamboat on her way to a school run by Angels in a white marble castle. 

It is a school everybody has to go to before they are let into Heaven. 
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 heavenly 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.

Beckoning Light book Review

Oh my, where to start.  First, a brief apology that this is so late in posting.  I have been having major computer issues with my computer randomly turning off and just got my new computer today and it too much longer than I anticipated getting it set up.  But enough about me, let’s get to the good stuff.

“Beckoning Light” by Alyssa Rose Ivy was an engrossing read.  I was drawn into the story almost immediately.  At first I thought it was just going to be a sweet romance between a finally come of age girl and her older brother’s best friend and childhood crush.  Boy was I wrong.  It was so much more complex and intriguing that that. 
Charlotte, one of the two main characters, is drawn to a gate in her garden.  This creepy gate that was kept locked and forbidden her entire life; but she had seen lights in it before… or maybe it was just a dream.  Then she can’t let it go and eventually finds a way in. It was kind of like a grown up “Secret Garden” with a dark side.
I was drawn to the character of Charlotte who was painfully shy and felt socially awkward, much as I did as a teen, so she was very likable as she tried hard to overcome her shyness because it hurt her brother.
Kevin, the other main character, was Charlotte’s older brother and his life revolved around basketball until his sister disappeared.  The story is told back and forth between their two points of view.
I would definitely recommend this book for anyone who likes the idea of another world and a secret entrance to another world.  It was a quick read for me as I was very involved in it.
