Step into the world of Shadow Falls, a camp that helps teens tap into their special…talents. Once you visit, you'll never forget it—and you'll never, ever be the same.
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.
My first review of Awake at Dawn
This was such a great book! We learned more, like another aspect of Kylie's powers, that she's a protector, and investigating into her dad's adoptive parents, and yeah, there's lots of romantic entanglements, from Kylie between Derek and Lucas, Miranda between Perry and his friend, and Holiday and Burnett.
I loved the fact that hey, these are people, and they get into arguments, like when Kylie told Burnett about how Holiday had a vampire fiancé who stood her up at the altar. And the subsequent cooling of the relationship between Holiday and Kylie.
And then how mad Perry was that Miranda kissed another dude, fighting him, and afterwards, kissing her, and then walking away. Not his smartest move! And yeah, it was great that he was worried about Miranda at the end!
Oh, and Kylie has some healing ability, because she healed Sara of the brain tumour, and she healed Lucas' battle wounds. And yeah, I didn't connect the ghost and who she was worried about, and Sara's phone call, this time, but oh, well!
Really enjoyed this book, can't wait to reread more!
