A breathtaking new installment of the bestselling Shadow Falls series for young adults by rising star C. C. Hunter!
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?
My Review: kylie starts off the book calling herself a lizard. Apparently her dad said thats what they were and that they will figure it out together, but Kylie still doesnt know what he meant by being camilion. So Kylie walks behind the office and stares off into the woods. She hears something calling her to the woods. Before she can think about it Derek shows up and he and Kylie talk. He still feels what Kylie feels and loves her. Kylie and Derek continue to talk when Lucas shows up and acts up. Kylie ends up running from him and goes to her cabin. She os in a bad mood and takes it out on her friends Della and Miranda. Once calm enough Kylie goes to look for Lucas. Finding that hes in the woods, she goes there to find him. Della and Kylie make it to the woods and find that they arent alone. They met with a group of werewolves. They mean no harm though, one of then is Lucas's dad abd only wants to talk. Lucas appears and begins to talk after telling the girls to leave. Now late at night Kylie has a vision that scares her. Della comes to check on her afterward and then leaves. Once better Kylie goes outside to meet Miranda in hopes of making Socks a real cat again. Miranda tries and fails, but as Kylie takes Socks back in she mentions something and it turns Socks the sunk into Socks the cat. Now what could Kylie be? Is she a witch? For the meantime Kylie just goes with it. Meanwhile the voices from the woods keep calling Kylie but now she hears a scream and her instinct to protect takes over. She goes into the woods and saves a girl and as she leaves the fog turns into someone she knows. She gets back to camp and Burnett is angry. Besides that they fins out that the girl Kylie brought is really Lucas's sister. They talk and then Lucas shows up, and then he notices Kylie's new pattern. He doesn't seem to happy about it. After a while Holiday and Kylie talk, Derek tells Kylie that Holiday had a sister who matches the description of one the ghost's she has been seeing. Kylie wonders why she hasn't mentioned it. Then later Lucas comes by and fake breaks up with Kylie and she doesn't quite know how to respond. So Kylie goes on with her life, and helps Della and Miranda set up the dinning hall for the welcoming. Miranda is upset about how Kylie reacted to being a witch, but they make up and all three girls just talk and have some fun. However Kylie felt uncomfortable with everyone staring at her pattern. On the other hand as she goes around Derek comes up to her and they find out another puzzle piece to the ghost problems. But that will be held off for now. The next day she heads to the falls with Holiday and Burnett. They talk more about her grandpa and that they haven't hear much yet, so they just talk, until the ghost appears. They ghost starts up telling Kylie she has to protect Holiday, but before she could get more Holiday's phone rings from an usual person. After that they leave with Burnett taking to Kylie wanting to know everything, and so Kylie reveals all. Shortly Kylie comes up with a plan. Later that night after getting an e-mail from her grandpa she decided to go meet him. She heads toward the cemetery, on her way Lucas and Perry find her, but she didn't have time to waste, so she ditched them and ran quickly before they can catch her. Just outside the cemetery Kylie encounters Hanna and get alot more information on how to help her and Holiday. After that she heads into the cemetery. She finds her grandpa and her aunt who both confirmed just what Kylie is and he grandpa wants to take her with them but she wont go, she knows that Shadow Falls is where she is meant to be right now, and to top it off she now has a vampire pattern! Before she can learn more Perry and Lucas finally caught up to her, and just like that her aunt and grandpa were gone. Kylie runs off back to Shadow Falls and upset at Lucas, but before she can hop the gate to Shadow Falls Lucas tackles her down. Kylie is upset but then she ans Lucas are fine again. He also explains a way for them to get over the gate without triggering the alarm. Now Kylie just toss and turns with worry of everyone looking at her pattern. The next day Kylie goes to find Holiday only to find she is meting with her ex who may be a killer. She and Burnett go to find her. They find her and once Holiday sopts them she comes out and after looking at Kylie they leave and that's when Kylie reveals to Holiday about her twin sister being dead. Now I can write about page after page after page, but then my review would take up the whole front page. So I will leave the rest of the book for everyone to read. However this is just another AMAZING book in the series with only one left to go.
