Friday, September 23, 2011

Now that she’s settled in at Shadow Falls Camp, Kylie Galen’s determined to discover the extent of her supernatural abilities. But with a ghost insisting someone Kylie loves is about die, a rogue vampire on a murdering rampage, and her sixth sense telling her someone is watching her, Kylie’s quest for answers is quickly put on hold.
To make matters worse, just when she’s about to give her heart to Derek, a half-fairy, he starts pulling away. When Lucas, a werewolf with whom Kylie shares a secret past, returns, Kylie’s feels more conflicted than ever. Her weekend with her mom should have been the just the break Kylie needs, but it turns out to be her breaking point. Someone from the dark side of the supernatural world has plans for Kylie--and it'll take all her resources to get back to Shadow Falls alive...

Goodreads Summary

This is the second book in the Shadow Falls series and it is easily as awesome as the first!  Kylie is still the main character and just as confused as ever about her supernatural talents-could she be a werewolf? fairy? vampire?  She continues to develop and hone quite a few amazing super powers through this book.  She is also confused about Lucas and Derek.  She knows it is time to choose between them, but she can't decide.  There are pros and cons to both boys.

Kylie is a fun main character.  She is smart, somewhat impulsive, and powerful.  Her two best friends are consistently at her side and the reader will be able to tell that they truly are her friends.  The boys, well, the reader will be happy with the scenes in this book-now Kylie just needs to choose...or wait for something to force her hand. 

The events in this book are exciting, there is almost always something new or exciting going on.  The reader will easily connect to Kylie and even to some of the secondary characters.  The reader will be left wanting more at the ending...and will get his/her wish-there will be another! This book is recommended to young adult/teen readers.
