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…

My thoughts: I enjoyed that this book was unlike anything I have read before ( not to say there isn't books like this already on the market, just not any I have read). Being a teenager is hard enough for a "normal" teen, add in the fact that you just learned paranormal things do indeed extist and it just might push you over the edge. I was a bit worried when I started this book because in the short period between requesting to review this book and getting it I have falled off the YA wagon ( I am never on a wagon long). but I was hooked to this book from the beginning. C.C. Hunter brought every character in this book alive and made you feel for them on many levels.

If you are looking for a fun, new and fast read this is the book for you! I can't wait to see where C.C Hunter takes us next.

My Rating: 4 stars

A special thank you goes out to DAC for allowing me the chance to review this book!

Until next time...
Happy Reading!
