The kooky psychologist gets Kylie sent to Shadow Falls Camp. Kylie and her parents think it's a camp for troubled teens. They thought wrong.

"Don't miss this spectacular new series that will steal your heart and haunt your dreams, Welcome to Shadow Falls camp, nestled deep in the woods of a town called Fallen..."

One night Kylie Galen finds herself at the wrong party, with the wrong people, and it changes her life forever. Her mother ships her off to Shadow Falls--a camp for troubled teens, and within hours of arriving, it becomes painfully clear that her fellow campers aren't just "troubled." Here at Shadow Falls, vampires, werewolves, shapshifters, witches and fairies train side by side--learning to harness their powers, control their magic and live in the normal world.

Kylie's never felt normal, but surely she doesn't belong here with a bunch of paranormal freaks either. Or does she? They insist Kylie is one of them, and that she was brought here for a reason. As if life wasn't complicated enough, enter Derek and Lucas. Derek's a half-fae who's determined to be her boyfriend, and Lucas is a smokin' hot werewolf with whom Kylie shares a secret past. Both Derek and Lucas couldn't be more different, but they both have a powerful hold on her heart.

Even though Kylie feels deeply uncertain about everything, one thing is becoming painfully clear--Shadow Falls is exactly where she belongs...

I absolutely fell in love with this book, I read two pages and was caught. I couldn't put the book down. I honestly didn't think I would like it much, but it was recommend to me so I thought I would give it a try. It really was an amazing read. It's not slow at all and it kept me wanting to read more and more and more. The book is based around the mystery of Kylie and why she can do what she can do and I couldn't wait to find out all the secrets. In the end, I still didn't know and now I must read more of the series. The main character is a bit whiny at first, but she's written well and she gets better. She learns to deal with her issues and embrace the paranormal world and along the way make some really good friends. The title fits in with the story and the cover is absolutely beautiful, I love the colors and it fits well with the story. I want to read the rest of the series, and can't more

Review: Slowly getting through my long list of TBR, this one has been on my list for a long long while. I have had the book sitting on my shelf, I just never had the chance to fit in my schedule. Finally I did and I am very happy to have finally started this wonderfully talked about series. I really really liked this book. It was a bit slow in the pacing at times for me but there was a lot of building of relationships and laying of puzzle pieces to create a very mysterious paranormal story. Long Story Short: Kylie was in the wrong place and the wrong time and ended herself up in a heap of trouble. Kylie's parents believe that she needs some help dealing with their divorce and that is why she is acting out. They send her to a camp for troubled teens that Kylie's counselor recommended. In only takes a short bit before Kylie realizes she is in a camp for paranormal teens not troubled teens. She is told she herself must be a paranormal but Kylie is positive she is not. She would rather believe she is just nuts or has a brain tumor. What Kylie doesn't expect is to make some great friends, fall for two gorgeous boys, and undercover some dark deep family secrets. My Thoughts: This was wonderfully written story. I am so excited to start another paranormal story that has some of the great aspects of a paranormal read with a very fresh story line. The plot is only just started in this book and it seems to me that its only going to get better. I am happy that all the books are currently available and I can just keep on keeping on and read all about it. The story is definitely one worth reading. The pacing was a bit slow for me at times, but the author did a wonderful job of building the characters and the story. I am just a little bit ADD and when the pace slows I have a bit of a hard time with continuing. I am glad I did though. It really picked up towards the middle and the story went from good to great. So many secrets, so many stories, so many great characters. Every time I thought I had things figured out the story took another turn. It was great. The characters were pretty awesome. I liked the main character. She was in denial for most of the book but she was pretty level heeded, in fact that is probably why she was in so much denial. She was way to level headed to believe anything paranormal existed and she may be one of them on top of that. I also liked her roommates very much. I loved Della and Miranda, their constant bickering was a real comediac act. They were both really loyal characters. I love loyal characters. The love story wasn't the entire focus,which was good for me. I love romance in my books but I do get tired of them being the total focal point. It is still very important to the story and a big part of Kylie's new life but there was so much more going on. There was a bit of insta-love but not the oh my I can't live without you type of insta-love but the kind of insta-love that is clearly insta-attraction. There is a love triangle of course and argh when will these stop. I really don't think it was needed in this story but it's there and I do love both boys already. I know this triangle is going to break my heart one way or the other. Lucas is the brooding bad boy full of passion and Derek is the sweet can't resist you kind of boy. I really did fall for both of them. I am hoping there will be a clear winner for me later on in the books. In The End: It was a great read and I will for sure carry on with this more

More reviews on my blog at This book is a thrilling paranormal series that kept me up all night. It was a fantastic read, another book that will definitely be on top of my favourites this year. A well written novel that a paranormal lover should watch out for . I just LOVED IT. I loved everything about this book, narration and plot was fabulous , I felt really connected with every characters. I was drawn to the humors and mysteries and deep in to the awesome world that C.C. Hunter made. And lets not forget the intensed romantic scenes of our heroin Kylie. eeeeh Kylie's life was falling apart, not mentioning her so complicated lovelife too but also a very shocking truth that she was yet to find out when her Mom signed her up to Shadow Falls Camp. From there her life will never be the same again. I am so excited for the next book to come out, Im absolutely going to watch out for it. Recommended! So enjoy reading! If you loved this one too as well as I did, well cheers to that! xshow more

Kylie's life is really sucking right now her boyfriend has dumped her and is now shacked up with someone else her parents are always fighting and are now getting a divorce and to top it all off, she is seeing someone that's not there her life could not get any worse right nope it can. Trying to escape for free hours, she heads to a party which ends up getting police searched and everyone is arrested. Her mum has had enough and send Kylie to camp over the holidays only problem is this camp is full of supernatural weirdo's and all Kylie can think about is getting home to her normal life the only problem is could Kylie really be a supernatural to. When you start this book, the first thing that hits you is how much I loved Kylie's thoughts and feelings when she is feeling down she always seems to think something so funny you want to laugh your head off. Kylie is really confused with everything that's happening in her life, but I felt that really, deep down, she knew all along that something was not right. She was a great character that you could not help but love and her two roommates are brilliant they all worked really well together, which made the book really easy to get into. Now the story line was all about supernatrals trying to get along at camp but there were also lots of other things going on like Kylie finding out who she is and whether she can trust Lucas and Derek. Then there is the fact that someone at camp is really out to close the camp down your mind spends lots of time trying to work out who's doing it and which boy (Lucas or Derek) you like best and want Kylie to end up with which is really hard because I really loved both guys. The author gave you lots to think about and made the story easy and exciting to read. The ending for me was good it sorted out a lot of loss ends and keeps it well open for the next book in the series all together the book was well written it had lots of dark and light moments that made the book fresh and fun to read. Five stars for all reviews follow best books blog more

4.5 Stars Spoiler Alert! Kylies life is falling apart with her grandmas death and her parents marriage coming to an end not to mention her recent break up. Apart from that she suffers from nightmares and is being stalked by a ghost. Just when she thinks her life cannot get any worse, she ends up at a camp, forced upon the revelation that she's a part of a whole different world; the supernatural and she happens to be the freak of the freaks because no one seems to know what she is exactly. Kylie finds herself attracted to Derek, a half fae but convinces herself that it's because he resembles her ex boyfriend Trey. Her roommates become her good friends and she begins to warm up to them. Not having believed that she truly is supernatural, she makes it her quest to find out whether and what if true starting with the possibilities of other logical reason for her "supernatural symptoms". Her life gets complicated with the attraction cum fear she has for Lucas, a werewolf that ignites her passion; her growing feeling for Derek and Trey wanting to get back with her. Meanwhile, the camp is tied to a mystery FBI Investigation in which Lucas is a suspect resulting in him running away from the camp. As she struggles with her mixfeelings of Derek and Lucas, the ghost that has been following her, makes a progress contacting her and a discovery about her dad sends Kylie reevaluating her perception regarding her parents and rethinking her decision to leave the camp. Kylie and her friends decide to investigate the case for themselves when it threatens them. And Kylie discovers yet another secret... ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ I really enjoyed reading this book; it was captivating. The idea of the camp and the setting feels refreshing and enchanting. It started off slow as with most books; it's understandable since it's setting up for the sequel but the second half got more interesting. The characters were well shaped with their distinct personalities and they were fun and easy to relate with especially Miranda and Della, Kylies friends and also Holidays character; it had depth. I liked how all the characters were introduced and grew and progressed slowly. There is a balance in Kylies personality that I appreciate; it's realistic and believable. As with the boys, I still haven't decided which team I am on. Their characters need to grow more into three dimensional. Although I normally go with the "bad boy" character, for now I see myself leaning toward Derek. In my opinion, the author could have worked more on physical detail than explaining too much especially in Kylies more

Kylie gets caught with alcohol and sent off to Shadow Falls Camp. She's expecting three months of nerdy kids and a boring camp. What she finds is a camp of freaks . . . real freaks like vampires, fairies, witches, werewolves, and shapeshifters. The camp is really a training ground where the kids can learn to master their powers. Kylie is sure there's been a mistake. Her only hope is to finish out her sentence and make it home alive. But things get complicated when two very different boys come into her life - and even more complicated when Kylie discovers she may, indeed, be right where she belongs. BORN AT MIDNIGHT captivated me from the beginning and kept me reading through to the end. This glimpse into the dark side of a strange and mysterious camp kept me reading. I wanted to put it down because my eyes were tired, but I couldn't bring myself to do it. I've added this to my re-read list and look forward to another visit to Shadow Falls more
