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, shapeshifters, 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…
“No, as in I didn’t wake up screaming bloody murder. I just passed out when a bloody ghost showed up for a visit. After a visit from a shape-shifting kitten and a perverted toad.” Kylie
C.C. Hunter created a story that had me feeling a variety of emotions. Maybe she was trying to leave readers feeling like Kylie was? A bit lost and confused.. not really knowing where she stands in the world. With one foot in the human world, and one in a cabin with a Vampire and a Witch? It’s bound to get a bit crazy.
It’s also got just enough of the dark stuff. It’s not all witty comebacks, spells gone awry and hot shapeshifters. Things get scary for Kylie. They get bloody and ghostly, and Kylie needs to figure out what’s going on before something worse happens. I loved the mystery and excitement mixed in to this story! Thankfully, ALL of the books in this series are out now, so if you love it.. You won’t have to wait to read #2 like I did!
