Week 34 Reviews: Taken at Dusk, Whispers at Moonrise, Saved at Sunrise, Chosen at Nightfall




From Goodreads:
Step into Shadow Falls, a camp for teens with supernatural powers.  Here friendship thrives, love takes you by surprise, and our hearts possess the greatest magic of all.

Kylie Galen wants the truth so badly she can taste it. The truth about who her real family is, the truth about which boy she's meant to be with—and the truth about what her emerging powers mean.  But she's about to discover that some secrets can change your life forever…and not always for the better.

Just when she and Lucas are finally getting close, she learns that his pack has forbidden them from being together.  Was it a mistake to pick him over Derek? And it's not just romance troubling Kylie. An amnesia-stricken ghost is haunting her, delivering the frightful warning, someone lives and someone dies. As Kylie races to unravel the mystery and protect those she loves, she finally unlocks the truth about her supernatural identity, which is far different—and more astonishing—than she ever imagined.

From Goodreads:
Shadow Falls Camp is back in session with the most explosive installment yet.  A shocking new threat will rock Shadow Falls—changing it forever and altering Kylie's journey in ways she never imagined.

Even at a camp for supernatural teens, Kylie Galen has never been normal. Not only can she see ghosts, but she doesn't seem to belong to any one species—she exhibits traits from them all. As Kylie struggles to unlock the secrets of her identity, she begins to worry that Lucas will never be able to accept her for what she is, and what she isn't…a werewolf.  With his pack standing in their way, Kylie finds herself turning more and more to Derek, the only person in her life who's willing to accept the impossible.

As if life isn't hard enough, she starts getting visits from the ghost of Holiday, her closest confidante.  Trouble is, Holiday isn't dead…not yet anyway.  Now Kylie must race to save one of her own from an unseen danger before it's too late—all while trying to stop her relationship with Lucas from slipping away forever.   

In a world of constant confusion, there's only one thing Kylie knows for sure.  Change is inevitable and all things must come to an end…maybe even her time at Shadow Falls.

From Goodreads:
Nestled deep in the woods, Shadow Falls is a secret camp where teens with supernatural powers learn to harness their abilities and live in the normal world.  But Shadow Falls is facing a problem that could finally expose them to the rest of the world.  Humans are showing up dead, and rogue vampires may be to blame. 

Camp resident Della Tsang, who's still coming into her own vampire powers, is assigned to help find those responsible. If she succeeds, maybe she'll even land her dream job: working for the F.R.U., the enforcers of the supernatural world.  But when she sees that her new partner is a hunky shapeshifter, things get complicated.  Steve, too gorgeous to be trusted and capable of seeing through her tough-as-nails exterior, knows just how to get under her skin.  And only hours into the mission, Della realizes rogue vampires aren't the only threat she's facing. If she's ever going to complete her assignment, she'll need his help…but learning to trust him will be her hardest challenge yet.

From Goodreads:
Kylie Galen's life hasn't been the same since her world was turned upside-down in Born at Midnight, Shadow Falls #1, and now an epic conclusion to her journey—not to mention a tough choice between two guys!—is brewing in Chosen at Nightfall:

When Kylie Galen left Shadow Falls, she thought it was the hardest decision of her life. Heartbroken and separated from everyone she loves, she has to embrace her abilities and what it means to be a chameleon. But as Kylie's journey comes to a close, she must return to the camp that started it all...and she must finally chose between the two boys who love her. The werewolf who broke her heart when he chose his pack over her, and the half-fae who ran from their intense attraction before they ever really had a chance. For Kylie, everything will finally be revealed and nothing will ever be the same.


My first review of Taken at Dusk, Whispers at Moonrise, Saved at Sunrise, Chosen at Nightfall 
My Review:
This is just a fantastic series. It balances the normal of boys and emotions and friendships, with the supernatural, bigger then life, with bad guys after your capture, and if against them, the bad guys as a group as is the case of Kylie, kill you. Not fun! Well, to go through. But to read? So much!

So much happens in these books. We meet Kylie's dad's adoptive parents, but then it turns out that it isn't them, we meet a ghost that was killed by FRU that turns out to be Kylie's grandma, and that the people impersonating her dad's adoptive parents were Kylie's grandpa and great aunt. And that's just Taken!

Well, we also find out that her species is called chameleon, because they can change their brain patterns, and with the pattern, they become whatever species that brain pattern is,  and their strengths and weaknesses. Which is pretty cool. And another special thing, that helps the above, is that they, if having parents from different species, don't have a dominate species. They have both, and they carry that down to their children and onwards!

And the ending! With John, her mom's boyfriend, turning out to be Mario's son, and Red's dad, and the husband of the ghost that wanted Kylie to learn how to fight, to the death. And yeah, that Kylie ends up using that skill on John instead of Mario, that was awesome!

Just loved this series, so freaking good, and yeah, I just can't wait to read Reborn and be in this world some more!!!
