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…

My Thoughts:

I enjoyed this book. Not a bad start to a new series and I'm curious to see where the series will go. Kylie is kind of whiny but at the same time I understand what turmoil she must me going through. Parents having issues, finding out everything she thought was a myth is true, finding out she might be different, hormones out of control, etc.

The boys in the book, wow hard to choose which one I like. I find Derek to be a great choice but then I think Lucas is a dang good choice as well. Hmm decisions, decisions. I loved Holiday's character. I think my only issue is she seemed almost like one of the teenagers at the camp instead of an adult running it. It's only a small issue though.

Okay I loved Kylie's roomies! They cracked me up with their constant bickering! Perry was pretty dang funny too. Kylie's parents annoyed the heck out of me but that's what parents are for lol.

All in all, not a bad read and I would definitely recommend it.

Thanks for the intro to a new series. Reading other blogs is dangerous to my TBR list!

What a great cover! Hopefully the protagonist doesn't continue being whiny - I'm not a fan of that either - because the premise sounds great.
