Chosent At Nightfall by C.C. Hunter - Book Review

Title: Chosen At Nightfall 
Author: C.C. Hunter 
Publication: April 23, 2013 
Series: Shadow Falls #5 
Format: Paperback 
My Rating: ♥♥♥♥♥


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 Review:

“This doesn't make sense." 
"I know," Kylie said. "And that seems to be the theme song of my life right now. Not a damn thing makes sense.”  

What a perfect end to the series! I loved this book so much. I am just now writing a review for this so I don't remember all the details but I do remember so many things that were just amazing. I couldn't help but notice there were a couple of spelling errors (I spot them really easily, they just pop up when I'm reading) but the great pace of the book didn't let it bother me too much. I am so glad with how this book ended, I have loved all the books in this series.

- Kylie
Such an amazing character. I think she deserves an award for one of the best female main characters. She is completely perfect and badass with her talents and just everything about her is great. She is a little pissy though and has more of an attitude in this book. Not as much Della though!

- Lucas
I love you. Marry me?
No? Ok. *hits head with a shovel and puts him in my trunk* Mwahahah
I love Lucas so much, I felt so betrayed by him in Whispers at Moonrise but I mean, I couldn't stay mad at him for any longer than the first chapter. He is just so sweet and amazing. If Kylie didn't have powers I would have fought her for him, but since she does...I'm just going to weep and love Lucas from afar.

- Derek
I love how it ended for Derek. He is such a great friend to Kylie and so incredibly sweet. I used to love him so much more than I loved Lucas but I'm team Lucas all the way.

Overall, I loved this book. If it wasn't obvious enough..  I just realized that there were novellas from Della's point of view, that seems so great! I can't wait to get those. This was such a great end to the series I'm so sad to see it go. There were so many scenes that had my laughing I had to keep rereading the lines because it was just so much fun to read those scenes over and over again...

“She tossed her towel on her dresser and turned to the bed where shed left her PJs. Only it wasn't just her PJs on the bed anymore.
Lucas, eyes wide, sat on the foot of her bed, about four feet from where she stood completely naked.
She squealed.
He laughed.
She dashed for the towel.
Once she had it around her, she glared from a still grinning Lucas to the door. "I'm killing Della!"
He laughed again. "I'm afraid I might have to protect her for this one.”

"I just..."
"Did I say you could talk?" he asked. He did three more pacing laps, as if working off steam, before he looked at her again. "Where were you going, Kylie?" When she just looked at him, he bit out, "Answer me."
"You said I couldn't talk.”

“Sometimes this just happens,” Kylie said, much calmer now that she had a sneak preview of his comeuppance.
“Just happens?” Burnett bellowed out. “Are you freaking kidding me! If you have sex, you use protection. It’s that simple. This shit doesn’t have to happen! This is nothing but carelessness. It’s irresponsible. It’s unforgivable.”
“Burnett!” Holiday rolled her eyes at Kylie and frowned. The fae knew exactly what Kylie was up to now. But Kylie wasn’t finished yet. “
Maybe we should put a rule in place. Any male who impregnates a girl should be neutered.”
“Enough,” Holiday snapped.
“Actually, that’s not a bad plan!” he growled.
“Burnett!” Holiday said in a stern voice. “Shut up before you embarrass yourself more than you already have.” When the vampire looked at Holiday, she continued, “Kylie didn’t buy the pregnancy tests for Miranda. She bought them for me.” Kylie flopped back against the seat again, enjoying the look of disbelief on the vampire’s face a little too much.
“Would you like a name of a good doctor who will schedule your little snip-snip operation?" she bit out."
