Whispers at Moonrise
At a camp filled with vampires, werewolves, and fairies, Kylie Galen has always struggled to figure out what she is. Now she finally knows the truth - but she's left with more questions than answers. She doesn't have a clue what her heritage means or how to harness her newfound powers. All she knows is that she needs to sort out her feelings for Derek, the sexy half-Fae who just confessed his love, and Lucas, her werewolf boyfriend who seems more committed to his pack than to their relationship. All the while, Kylie's dealing with a group of underground rogues who want her dead and a mysterious grandfather who makes it clear he doesn't trust the FRU...or Shadow Falls. Soon Kylie will have to choose: Will she stay with the new family she's formed at Shadow Falls, or will she leave with her grandfather and embrace her destiny?

May contain spoilers Whispers at Moonrise is the fourth book in the Shadow Falls series. And with only one more book planned in the series, I know I'm going to be deeply saddened to leave this world which I've really enjoyed spending time in. Kylie is living at Shadow Falls, a camp for supernaturals. But Kylie isn't like the other kids at camp, she's not a vampire, or werewolf, or shifter, or fae. She's a chameleon, which means she has the DNA for many different types of supernatural. Not many chameleons exist and very little is known about them, so Kylie feels like a freak. She hasn't yet learned to control her changes so she's never sure what she's going to be at any one time. She's also a ghost whisperer which means she sees spirits and helps them to solve their problems so they can cross over. And if all that doesn't make her weird enough, she's also the first half blood protector. She gains amazing strength and speed when someone else is in danger but she can't protect herself in dangerous situations. Kylie has two amazing, hot guys vying for her attention. Derek who's fae and Lucas, a werewolf. When she appears to have made her choice, a whole new can of worms opens up and she's left miserable. She has two brilliant best friends, Miranda who's a witch and Della, a vampire, who she also shares a cabin with. The trio really care for and look out for each other. Kylie has an extremely close relationship with the camp leader, Holiday, a fae. Burnett is another camp leader, a vampire, who is crazy about Holiday. Kylie has been trying to get them together for a long time as she's sure Holiday feels the same but won't give in because she's been hurt before. But being a chameleon, so unusual and so powerful, brings with it it's own danger for Kylie. She's on the radar of a gang run by Mario, also a chameleon, who previously kidnapped her and wanted her to marry his grandson. He is ruthless, killing his own grandson when he tried to protect Kylie. And the FRU, kind of like the supernatural FBI, want to carry out tests/experiments on her, the same experiments that led to the death of her grandmother. Her grandfather wants to take her away to live with him so he can protect her and teach her what she needs to know to survive as a chameleon. She doesn't want to leave Shadow Falls as it feels like her home, the only place she belongs. Whispers at Moonrise is a brilliant instalment in the Shadow Falls series, maybe the best one yet. A killer is on the loose. Having already killed three girls, Holiday is next on his list. And with only the help of one of the dead girls, Kylie must try to find out who the killer is before time runs out. She's also dealing with her own problems of being on Mario's hitlist, trying to figure out more about being a chameleon and not feel like such a freak and, deal with the fact that she and Lucas are spending very little time together, the reason being, that the pack doesn't approve of her. From the very first book, this series reeled me in and has kept me riveted since. And now, with only one more to go, Chosen at Nightfall will be a bittersweet read. I can't wait to have it in my hands yet I don't want this series to come to an end.show moreby Suzanne Finnegan
Be sure to check out my blog, for more book related stuff, like book tours, and giveaways and more. <a href="http://concisebookreviewsbymichelle.blogspot.com"> Michelle's Paranormal Vault of Books </a> Whew, this book took me on a heck of a ride, emotionally. I loved it more than I can even say. I am a huge fan of the Shadow Falls series, and had waited too long to read this, (Ok I did the Audible audio book thing with my Kindle purchase) and if it wasn't for being able to listen to it on Audible, I would still be waiting. As I would be able to listen while doing housework, or other tasks that I could not do while reading, lol. I have so many tour books to read, I have to read them every-time I can actually read. Anyway, so happy I was able to do this. Fans of Shadow Falls will love this book, its funny how the series gets better and better, if that's even possible. I do not want to spoil anything, so will keep this short. I will say, I was disappointed to not get more of Derek, as he is my favorite guy by far, and I always thought he should be the one Kylie to be with, but after what Lucas does to Kylie, I really believe it even more. He is a JERK. Will not say more, if you read it, you will know why. If not, better get too it. lol. I loved how Kylie got to discover more on her powers and what it means to be what she is. I wont mention that either, as I worry someone will read this who had not read the last book at least, that spilled the big answer to what kind of supernatural Kylie is. Its a journey for sure, and will keep you enthralled from the start. I know it did me. 5 out of 5 stars for me. LOVED it.show moreby Michelle's Paranormal Vault of Books
