Summary: (from goodreads) It is Meghan’s second year at The Academy.

But something evil is threatening the students at the Academy and Meghan is no longer safe within the walls of the castle. Something causes several of the students to be caught in the middle of a nightmare, that they can’t wake up from.
Soon they realize that they might have a traitor in their midst.

Serenity is the second book in T. P. Boje's Afterlife-series about a young girl's life after death. It is great for the young reader ages 9 and up.

First I want to say how much I love the cover of this book. The colors, purple and white, on a black background spin around and look like some kind of electric tornado. Very cool!

In Serenity, Meghan starts her 2nd year of school. She and her class are learning how to fly on Pegasus' and fly through severe storms. She becomes closer with Mick and longs to visit Jason, hoping there is something she can do to help him. she essentially saved his life in the last book because she knew something bad was going to happen to him and did everything in her power to stop it. Sadly, it backfired and even though Jason lived, he did not have a very good life to look forward to.

There is an element of danger in this book. Something is causing some of the student to be caught in the middle of a nightmare...screaming. Meghan starts to hear voices and she becomes worried because the voices are threatening HER. You'll find yourself racing through the last few chapters to see just how it will end.

I enjoyed this book and getting to know some of the characters a little better. Meghan and Mick's relationship is more played out than hers with Jason in the first book, so it was more clear how they felt about each other. I missed some of the characters from the first book and I really didn't like the dark moods that Mick would get caught up in at times. But other than those things, I really liked this book and am enjoying this series. I can't wait to get my hands on the next book.
