“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.”
This is the second book in the Shadow Falls series; there are five books in this series all of which have been released. This is a pretty typical YA paranormal read but it is incredibly addicting and hard to put down. I have really been enjoying it!
I absolutely could not put this book down. The broader mystery of what Kylie is is still slowly being revealed and Kylie goes through a lot of changes in this book. There is also a mystery contained in this book about the most recent ghost that is haunting Kylie.
This is an easy and fun read, the story just pulls you right through the book. There is a love triangle in here which I normally don’t like, but for this book it really works. I enjoyed both of the male leads Derek and Lucas. Many secrets are revealed for both of our male leads as well. They also both have very good chemistry with Kylie which makes for a fun tension filled read.
Overall I really enjoyed this book a ton and can’t wait to read the next book in the series. I love series that have a mystery contained in each book and then a broader storyline as well. I would recommend to those who enjoy paranormal YA books. This book is well written and very entertaining!
