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, 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…
I have to admit that I was so skeptical reading another supernatural novel but this book changed my mind.
Born at midnight is apalling, enthralling and truly fascinating. The characters have their unique qualities. The characters are alive and very realistic.
At first, Kylie wanted to just jumped out of her toilent-bound life, but ends up entering a supernatural world where she met different creatures she never thought exists.
This is a refreshing story about supernatural creatures. I'm so done reading vampires and werewolves stories and promised not to bother reading another but this caught me up midway of my sentiment.
An now just like Kylie, I am thorned between Lucas and Derek. Lucas, the bad ass hottie (not to mention Kylie's not so good childhood memories with him) and there's Derek, the cute and PATIENT guy as he call himself. Atleast two-thirds of the story, it was Derek whom was there having moments with Kylie. While the othe one-third Lucas was just there gazing at her (and it gave me a chill). I'm rooting for Derek but let's see what will happen to ghe next books.
One more thing is the revelations and twists of the story. It amazed me how it is well-written and how slowly secrets were unfolded.
Daniel. Daniel. Daniel. Daniel.
I imagine him as a hot soldier okay. Why do you have to die? CRIES
In a nut shell, I would recommend this book to others. It is worth a read especially if you're on your quest of not reading supernatural stories anymore. Thos will pull you back and you would just idly say, "wow i never thought I'm enjoying this". Believe me, that happened to me.
