Serie: Shadow Falls #2
Release date: 2011
From the moment Kylie Galen arrived at Shadow Falls Camp, she’s had one burning question: What am I?
Surrounded by vampires, werewolves, shape-shifters, fairies and witches, Kylie longs to figure out her own supernatural identity…and what her burgeoning powers mean. And now she’ll need them more than ever, because she’s being haunted by a new spirit who insists that someone Kylie knows—and loves—will die before the end of the summer. If only she only knew who she was supposed to save. And how…
But giving Kylie the most trouble is her aching heart. Gorgeous werewolf Lucas left camp with another girl, but he’s still visiting Kylie in her dreams. And Derek, a sexy half Fae who’s always been there for her when she needed him, is pushing to get more serious—and growing impatient, especially when Lucas returns. Kylie knows she needs to decide between the boys, and it’s tearing her up inside.
Yet romance will have to wait, because something from the dark side of the supernatural world is hiding in Shadow Falls. It’s about to threaten everything she holds dear…and bring her closer to her destiny.
Gosh after reading Born at Midnight, I really couldn’t wait to see what this book was about. Just as the first one, I loved this one as well! Where do I even begin? Kylie, the main character, is very likeable, dealing with real-life issues that makes you genuinely feel for her throughout the novel. I just love her best friends Della and Miranda, they are so full of humor and their own personal issues are dealt with in Awake at Dawn perfectly. The relationship with Kylie and the camp leader Holiday grows in this book and I found it very nice how Holiday is a caring and giving character. It’s also very interesting to see where things are going with Holiday and Burnett!! The love life of Kylie is good too. Again, like I said in the review of the first book, it’s not the main issue of the book like it is with so many YA books. The book is mainly about self discovering and the side issues are her love life/friends/parents etc. What I like about her love life is, it’s not an easy one. They are not throwing themselves at Kylie. No, instead Kylie has also problems with boys. I find myself not favoring one of the boys, which mostly is the case with love triangles. I think Hunter did a good job on that! The powers of Kylie are developing throughout the book and in the end there are a lot of things that become clear, not what she is though. It looks like she’s a bit of everything! And the end was really killing me! I’m very curious to see where life is heading for Kylie, so I’m going to read the third one very soon! All I can see, it’s really a must read series!
