Turned at Dark is a quick, fun and at times humorous short story about how Della became a vampire and how she ended up at Shadow Falls. It is a prequel to the full length book, Born at Midnight, which will be releasing in two weeks.
This is a great way to introduce this new series, get a feel for the author’s writing style and meet one of the more i...more
Turned at Dark tells the story of Della and her transformation from Asian American teen, under a tremendous amount of pressure from her pride-stricken father to bloodsucking vampire. I really enjoyed the realistic issues Della faced before her transforma...more
The perfect start in this series since it tells the story about Kylie's newfound best girlfriend Della and how she became a Vampire. Perfect to get in the mood, or if you are already read BaM and are now waiting anxiously for Awake at Dawn...
Woops, and did I mention it is a free download?? ;)
I was thrilled when I found out that C.C. Hunter’s Born At Midnight, one of my anticipated reads for this year, has a prequel and it's available up on the publisher’s site and we can all read it for free! So I went there in a heartbeat and read it.
Turned At Dark is a quick-read yet it includes ideas and glimpses on what to expect on Born At Midnight. I really enjoyed Della as a character and I also like the fact that she was actually a human first. I though...more
Della is such a character. The moment I read about her in Born at Midnight, I knew I’d enjoy her. So when I found out she had her own novella, I couldn’t wait to read it.
Della is the resident vampire at Shadow Falls summer camp and like others. She’s learning where she fits into the world now that she’s been turned. Now Della wasn’t bitten, so ther...more
I downloaded this short story a while ago and was really excited to read it, but I had to finish the book I was reading then it ended up in my 'pile'. If you watched my TBR video I posted yesterday, I went through everything I had and I saw this listed. As it was only 32 pages I decided to dive in.
We follow Della Tsang through her transformation into a vampire and her introduction to the worlds darkest creatures. Werewolfs, faes, shape-shifters, vampires, they are all there. The story was short and simple and after it I started reading the first few chapters of Born at Midnight, only to realise that the fear I had was true.
These series isn't really for me. Maybe in the future I'll give it a shot, but not now...
This gives the expanded background story on Della, and how she ended up at the camp. It's nothing vital, considering she explains what happened to her in the first book. However, it was short and free. So, definitely not a bad thing if you want to kill ten minutes.
The descriptions and dialogue are all well done. The main character, Della, is another strong young female character. Can never have enough of those!! :) Si...more
As you may know from reading Born at Midnight, the first book of the Shadow Falls series, Della Tsang is Kylie Galen's Vampire friend. Here, we learn how Della was turned into a vampire and how she came about Shadow Falls. We also go into a bit more depth of Della's life before Shadow Falls and a brief history about Supernaturals. Warning though: like Forgotten Lyrics by Amanda Hocking (which I'm currently reading), it's a quick read. Actually, even...more

After attending a party, Della is attacked and injured. She is saved by her cousin. . . who is supposed to be dead. Della learns that he is a vampire and that she isn’t so normal herself, or even as human as she would like to think.
Della - I believe Della will be a secondary character in the rest of the Shadow Falls series if the blurbs I’ve read are correct (I dou...more
This book covers the life of Della Tsang, the vampire at Shadow Falls Camp and how she came to be after her cousin Chan who is also a gang member turned her. Her boyfriend was a jerk and her parents thought she was using drugs. So she turns to Holiday Brandon, the leader at the camp for help. That's where it ends and goes right into Born at Midnight, the first book in the Shadow Falls...more
On suit Della, une jeune fille asiatique qu’on dit obstinée, et dont le père n’aime pas les signes de faiblesse. Je crois que ce second point la caractérise mieux que le premier. En attendant son petit ami (a...more
This is a prequel short story to the Shadow Falls novel series, starring Della Tsang, who is the roommate of the title character in the series, Kylie Galen. This is the story of how this friend was changed from a normal half-Chinese-half-Caucasian teenager into a vampire. As far as these prequels go, I thought it was pretty good. It's a decent length, and most of my Kindle file was the actual short story, not the preview...more
Della Tsang’s transformation was wonderfully written. The way how the ‘virus’ spreads was also unique. It was less mythical and less magical, more medical. Della’s disbelief, hesitation and worry that...more
Turned at Dark is a novella in the Shadow Falls Series for which I am definitely going to read. It follows 16 year old Della Tsang who has never seen a ghost until the night she sees her dead cousin Chan zipping across the street and ducking into an alley. Chan has been dead for less than a year, or so she thought. Della actually attended his funeral. Della is hardhead and refuses to believe what is right in front of her with a world full of Vampires, Shape-shifters, Fae,...more

With the same lighthearted and fun feel that we get from Born at Midnight C.C. let's us in on Della's tale of how she was turned into a vampire and made her way to Shadow f...more
I would love other little treats like this from other characters point of view. It really helps you better understand where they are coming from.
I heard a rummer there is going to be a spin off series to Shadow Falls featuring Della. I hope it is true! She has so much of a story to tell!
This little short changed that. It was well written a very funny in parts. Vampires are my least favorite paranormal creatures and I tend to shy away if they're the main creatures in the story....more
I am reading Born at Midnight and really enjoying it. I like most of the side characters from that book, including Della. This little short story is about her, Della, and how she became a vampire. It was okay. I mean, I guess I know Della a little better now. She has one strict family, and I felt a little bad for her. But that was it, nothing really happen other than what Della went trough as she was "turning". It's a really short story so I'm g...more
I liked the different take on vampires here. Well, not that the vampires are different, exactly, but I like that the way a vampire is created is different. It's funky. There was no biting involved. I liked it. Of course, I like the biting part too, but I liked that CC Hunter gave us mythology that was...more
