Don’t miss this spectacular new series that will steal your heart and haunt your dreams, Welcome to Shadow Falls camp, nestled deep in the woods of a town called Fallen…
One night Kylie Galen finds herself at the wrong party, with the wrong people, and it changes her life forever. Her mother ships her off to Shadow Falls—a camp for troubled teens, and within hours of arriving, it becomes painfully clear that her fellow campers aren’t just “troubled.” Here at Shadow Falls, vampires, werewolves, shapshifters, witches and fairies train side by side—learning to harness their powers, control their magic and live in the normal world.
Kylie’s never felt normal, but surely she doesn’t belong here with a bunch of paranormal freaks either. Or does she? They insist Kylie is one of them, and that she was brought here for a reason. As if life wasn’t complicated enough, enter Derek and Lucas. Derek’s a half-fae who’s determined to be her boyfriend, and Lucas is a smokin’ hot werewolf with whom Kylie shares a secret past. Both Derek and Lucas couldn’t be more different, but they both have a powerful hold on her heart.
Even though Kylie feels deeply uncertain about everything, one thing is becoming painfully clear—Shadow Falls is exactly where she belongs…
Born at Midnight is one of those novels I didn’t really any expectations about. It was one of those books that sit in my bookshelves. I finally read it last week, and I simply couldn’t put it down once I started it! I really had no expectations about this novel, as I hadn’t read many reviews about it. All I knew was that it was about a camp full of supernatural. Yet, HOLY SMOKE! THAT WAS SOOO GOOD!!!
I didn’t think I would get into the story as much as I did. That’s why I had decided to start the book before going to bed. WRONG IDEA! I ended up reading it in one sitting, only to finally be able to go to bed at 3AM. I just had to know what would happen next, to discover what Kylie really was.
The first novel in this series more about setting the tone for the series, and about presenting the characters, yet it never got boring to me. Even though there wasn’t killing action in most of the book, there was some action toward the end. Still, the characters in the novel really made it interesting, in my opinion. Kylie was interesting to me, especially since she didn’t simply want to believe she was a supernatural. I liked that about her, as it made her more believable in my eye. Her ex, Trey, was one character that I really dislike, as he was such a prick. I had trouble believing he acted with Kylie sometimes. Derek was one character that I started disliking toward in the middle of the book. There was just something about me that made me unable to trust his intentions towards Kylie. I can’t really say why though. Then, there’s Lucas that I ADORE. There’s just something about him that made me swoon. I can’t wait to read more of him in the next book.
C.C.Hunter created a series that will get you addicted. It is a novel you should really pick up soon if you haven’t yet. I can’t wait to finally discover what Kylie is!
