My Rating: ♥♥♥♥♥
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.
The breathtaking fourth installment of the New York Times bestselling Shadow Falls series from author C. C. Hunter...Whispers at Moonrise.
“We all must pay a price for following our own paths. But... it's not always fair to ask others to pay that price."
Ah so many emotions! I'm still trying to settle through them. I finished this book a few minutes ago so I'm still trying to see how I'm going to write this review. Let me just start off by saying, WHY LUCAS?!? You have crushed my heart. This was such an awesome installment to the Shadow Falls series. I am surprised that the whole plot ending thing went by so fast! I wanted it to be more detailed. And why a cliff hanger? Ugh! I can't begin to explain how much I want the next book in my hands at this moment. I just want to read Chosen at Nightfall right now. I laughed so much through this book and cried a lot. I was in a whole emotional outburst through this book, I got some weird looks from my family. I loved this book!
I seriously love Kylie's character. She seemed very rude in this book than in the others, I know she was going through a lot but she had a pissy attitude which I found a little annoying. Other than that, her character is just amazing. I don't care that she finds herself weird, I find her so freaking badass. Just that she can do so much amazes me. I love seeing her powers grow through every single book.
AHH! You killed me. With those few pages, you have killed me. I just can't. I was growing onto Lucas, I have been so in love with Derek that in this book I was finally loving Lucas but I just can't believe that whole thing that just happened. I do wish there were a little more scenes with Lucas and I hated how he rarely made time to see her saying the whole "pack" thing. I got tired of it. He should have sat with her at lunch, told her he loved her. Boy you were too late!
I did love Derek but in this book he just seemed like a really good friend. I remember in the other books how much more he was involved and even though there were a lot of scenes with him and her thoughts about him, I was just wanting more Lucas. I do love Derek, I think that he may have made a better boyfriend than Lucas but there are things about Lucas that just makes my heart melt.
- Holiday & Burnett & Della & Miranda
All very important characters that are just amazing. I love every single character in this book!
Overall, I think it is pretty obvious how much I loved this book. This is my favorite of the series so far and I am hoping to get the next book as soon as possible. That cliffhanger killed me as well as Lucas's betrayal. I need to know what happens! It did feel a little dull at times and I just skimmed through some pages but I found this book incredible
