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…


Wow!  I had no idea how much I would love this book.  From page one up until the last word on the last page, I was entranced with everything the author brought to the reader.  I loved the characters and the supernatural world that were involved.

Kylie is having a hard time in life right now.  Her parents are getting a divorce, she finds herself being arrested at a party, and eventually finds herself enrolled at a summer camp.  Shadow Falls is not just another summer camp for troubled teens though.  Shadow Falls is a camp for supernaturals who are trying to adjust to their new abilities and fitting into the world with normal humans.  Supposedly, if you were born at midnight, you might have special talents and be a supernatural creature instead of a regular human.  Kylie is shocked and refuses to believe that she could be anything besides normal.  She may see a ghost once in awhile, but she still refuses to believe that she is anything but human.

This is one book that will leave you craving for more by the time you finish it.  Yes, it wraps up nicely, but it leaves just enough unanswered questions to have you anticipating the next book in the series.  With shocking discoveries, suspenseful mystery, supernatural creatures and romance that blossoms, I was hooked and did not want to stop reading!  I can’t wait for the next book and it left me wishing that I was born at midnight so I could go join Shadow Falls Camp!
