C.C. Hunter wrote an amazing sequel to Born at Midnight. Everything I loved about Born at Midnight was present in Awake at Dawn. Awake at Dawn is absolutely unputdownable. I read this book in record time. I got up an hour early in the morning to read, I read on the bus on my way to class, I even ignored my friends at break time in order to immerse myself in Kylie's story.

Awake at dawn is a delightful read with a plot full of twists and turns, genuine emotions that reach your heart and make you...more

Born at Midnight was a great start to this series. I liked the writing, and even though Kylie was boring sometimes, it was still enjoyable. I didn't like certain things about it, like the shallow romance, and the mistery about what Kylie was.
I hoped that, in Awake at Dawn, those things would develop, and we'd get to know a lot more about Shadow Falls. I can say, for sure, that this didn't happen.
Well, to start with, Kylie doesn't know what she is. She spends the first half of the book searchin...more

Brilliant sequel.

I AM SOOOOOOO TEAM DEREK!!!!!


UCH LUCAS CAN GET STUFFED.

NORMALLY IM ALL FOR THE WEREWOLVES. BUT LUCAS... I JUST CAN'T. DEREK IS TOO HOT.

PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, DONT BE STUPID KYLIE AND PICK DEREK, FOR GODS SAKE.

I thought we'd finally find out what Kylie truly is in this installment... So it kinda dragged a bit and got a tad frustrating but next time maybe eh?

Saying I was thrilled when Awake at Dawn arrived on my doorstep would out it lightly. I was beyond thrilled because after finishing Born At Midnight I was in love with the story, the characters and CC's writing. I devoured Awake at Dawn in one day and needless to day I was sad when it was over...

We are back in Shadow Falls with Kylie, her great friends, the boys and the camp leaders. Kylie still has no clue who she is and what she will become other than knowing and finally accepting her ghost-w...more

I would like to just say I NEED MORE LUCAS! Okay so you might guess I am a total hot werewolf fan. While I loved every minute he was in this book, I would like more, lots and lots more!!

Awake at Dawn is a fantastic sequel. All of our favorites are back and just as loveable as before. Its just a fun new series with an amazing set of characters, one hot werewolf (okay the fairy is too, lol) and lots of mystery. Kylie is still trying to figure out what supernatural she really is. Now she is gaining...more

“Life isn't supposed to be easy. Generally speaking, the harder something is the more rewarding the results will be.”


This is one of series that seem to get better with each book. I am glad I decided to read this one.

In this book a new ghost starts to visit Kylie and warns her that someone she loves will die soon, but Kylie does not understand whom she has to save.
Moreover, there is the problem with vampire attacks and her supernatural identity. The hints are all contradictory and Kylie is mor...more

This is a nice sequel. Though I still prefer the first book.

It's still funny and adventurous and full of teen dramas.... which gets a bit annoying at times.

Kylie is still trying to discover what she is. Is she a vampire? werewolf? shapeshifter? fairy? She's still confused with her feelings for Derek and Lucas but decided to give Derek a chance. And I must agree with Lucas, Derek is an idiot. Derek is patient and understanding guy BUT what the hell was he thinking?!? As for Lucas I'm getting fon...more

OH my goodness I LOVE this cover<333 I can't wait for this book! Come quickly!!! <3

Fantastic sequel! I loved every part it. I loved discovering what Kylie was discovering, feeling what Kylie felt, and watching her grow. I have to admit, boy wise, I was Team Lucas after Born At Midnight. But, now, after Awake At Dawn, I am kind of split. Derek is just the all around great guy, with sexy green eyes and then there's also Lucas who you can't help but loving. ARRRGGG I'm not sure...more

I liked this book, but not as much as the first. It was still fun and I, of course, still love CC's writing. I just really want to know what Kylie is and I keep thinking come onnnnn already...I guess that's what she wants us to be like though, isn't it? As far as the boys I am definitely liking Derek, but I really seem to be in the minority it seems based on some reading I did on her blog. Most of her fans love Lucas. I do too! I just like Derek more :p

As in the first book I find the friends to...more

I remember liking the first book well enough to make a note to read this second one. But... why??? I can 't remember why I liked it enough to do so now. I pretty much skimmed through this book because I found myself losing interest really early on and zoning out. I just couldn't get into the characters, I just couldn't care about the plot, and I just couldn't stay focused on what was happening because it was all ridiculous roll-your-eyes teenaged angst. Sorry, I gave this book a shot but I'm not...more

I need some hawt Lucas and Kylie scenes ASAP!

This series is pretty great.
The first time I read this book I was legit blown away by how freaking awesome it was.
But now.....
Well, don't get me wrong, it's still super, but it wasn't exactly as I had first remembered it.
Oh well though, there goes my too high expectations......tsk tsk.....
So basically, besides that negative point, this book is a perfect second installment.
The characters....great. The plot....can you say confusing? Yet in a good way and its so mysterious.
Oh god the drama and come...more

If you haven't read Born at Midnight what are you waiting for? Check out my review
Not too long ago I read Born At Midnight and I really liked it. It was natural that I would read Awake at Dawn and I'm glad I did. Kylie has a spirit visiting her, saying that she has to save someone but the ghost won't tell her who. Lucas ran away with Fredericka but visits her in her dreams. Derek wants Kylie to forget Lucas but how can she?
Shadow Falls is a series that is very addicting! C.C. Hunter created...more

'Awake at Dawn' is the second in the Shadow Falls series, chronicling Kylie Galen's coming of age (and supernatural-icity!) with her new found friends, life, and love-interests. This book really helped cement my connection to all of the main characters established in Born at Midnight (Shadow Falls #1). I think Kylie is a likeable protagonist, dealing with real-life issues that make you genuinely feel for the predicaments she finds herself in throughout the novel. I LOVE her two best friends at S...more

Kylie doesn’t know what she is. Kylie kisses a boy. Kylie has a sudden not-so-climatic event. Kylie still doesn’t what she is. Kylie is at the end of book two.
For me, that was exactly what it was like reading this book. I remember I complained about the fact that Hunter didn’t use first person in the first installment of this series and unfortunately I have to do it again. In my opinion, if you’re going to write in third person, you should write in a way that your characters name isn’t repeated...more

I just made up my mind, seeing I just read all in quick succession, that my stars for this series is going to be decreasing in the coming future. This is so because:
1. No self respecting person is going to lead another guy on just because you heard a 'rumor' the guy you love is shacking up with another girl. That's just one step closer to being that woman on her fourth husband.
2. It is true we girls love a bad boy, but I never heard anything about a bad boy with no baggage so I have nothing to s...more

Awesome sequel to Born at Midnight. :D It was pretty neat that Kylie showed symptoms of a few different species. I'd love to know what the hell she is. o.e

My thoughts on the characters
Derek was okay until a little more than halfway through the book. Jerk.
Miranda is adorable. I want to squeeze and hug her.
Della is funny as hell. I can relate to her though.
Kylie is...I don't even know. I will by the last book, hopefully.
Lucas is...ugh. <3 Team Lucas all the way~

Can't wait for Taken as Dusk~

I NEEEEEED this book! Like now! Today! Yesterday!
I don't care how, I just need it.

I SERIOUSLY HOPE THIS SERIES HAS 20 BOOKS IN IT!!!! I LOVE THEM THAT MUCH!

Awake at Dawn is book two of the Shadow Falls Series. This is a exhilarating series about a young girl’s journey to discover just who and WHAT she really is. Book one introduced readers to a plethora of various character and supernatural talents. With her two best friends one a witch and one a vampire; Kylie is beginning to find a home at Shadow Falls. It is also to her benefit to have a very hot Fairy beating down the door. Even though a very hot Werewolf seems to occupy a lot of her thoughts....more

I got halfway through. It was too slow and I know it's supposed to be suspenseful "OH WHAT IS SHE OMG" but it's not written where it's suspenseful, it's just annoying. Not to mention she cries about EVERYTHING. And I feel like her accent goes in and out. It's kind of like she doesn't have an accent, and then every 10 chapters she says y'all. For some reason that really annoyed me.

The characters that started out funny are getting OLD. Della is a whiny, "bad-ass" wannabe bitch. She stalks off and...more

Review courtesy of Dark Faerie Tales.

Quick & Dirty: This was a really good sequel to Born at Midnight. The story was really interesting and filled with great action, good humor, and an interesting love triangle.

Opening Sentence: “You have to stop it, Kylie. You have to. Or this will happen to someone you love.”

The Review:

Kylie has finally accepted that she isn’t normal. She went to Shadow Falls at the beginning of the summer and found out that the supernatural exist and that she is one of th...more

Do kids really still say, "Will you go out with me?" when they are not referring to a date, but a relationship? It really takes me back.

I was in grade ten (I'm from Canada, so for you US citizens, that means I was a sophomore) when a guy asked me to "go out." We were at a dance, dancing to a slow song that I don't remember when he looked at me with his chocolate brown eyes and said in his Aussie accent, "Wanna go out?" I thought of the guy I really liked (who didn't like me back) smiled and sai...more

Awake at Dawn is the second book in the Shadow Falls series by C.C Hunter and continues on where Born at Midnight left off.

Our main protagonist Kylie Galen is still trying to work out where she fits in at the Shadow Falls camp for supernatural beings. She has settled into their world and is slowly discovering new and exciting abilities but no-one is able to tell her exactly what she is.

Throughout this story, Kylie has a ghost trying to give...more

Rezumat:

„Identitatea” supranaturală a alui Kylie este încă sub semnul întrebării, ea punându-și în fiecare zi aceeași întrebare: ”Ce fel de creatură sunt eu?”.

Deși directoarea taberei, Holiday, și prietenii săi îi oferă tot sprijinul lor, Kylie trebuie să se confrunte cu tot felul de probleme, printre care și relația cu tatăl său vitreg și sentimentele ei pentru Derek și pentru vârcolacul Lucas. Iar dacă as...more

To be perfectly honest, I probably wouldn’t have found the motivation to keep reading this series if my sister hadn’t given me a copy of the second book. It’s not that the first book was bad by any means, it’s just I’m not big on series, and the first book, while being enjoyable, didn’t really grip me.

But, I don’t know, I kinda got into this second book. I think it’s because Kylie’s finally accepted her supernatural-ness in this one, so she’s not annoyingly walking around going, “I couldn’t pos...more

Kylie and her cabin-mate besties vampire Della and witch Miranda are back in the thick of it at Shadow Falls in Awake at Dawn by C.C. Hunter. A fantastic follow-up to Born at Midnight, I was ecstatic when I got my copy in the mail and proceeded to put all other things aside as I lost myself in a world full of young paranormals at a ‘special’ camp soon to be a school where they explore and learn to control their gifts.

At Shadow Falls, an extremely peaceful setting all is not as it...more

I love sequels that don't fall flat. The kind that continue the story and all the points from the first book without dragging. It's refreshing, absorbing, and fun! And this book lived up to it all!
I love Kylie. She's such a perfect heroine and her relationship and comments with Miranda and Della were just hilarious! Perry is definitely growing on me too.
Speaking of characters growing on me, can we say Lucas anyone?
I definitely enjoyed getting to know him better and as I the end of his book...I'...more

Another great book in the series! Oddly enough it's as good as the first and as a general rule of thumb the second in a series is usually a let down.

When the book starts, it's a few weeks where we left off from the first. Lucas is gone, he is with Fredricka and Kylee is still semi seeing Derek. Kylie is still trying to find out what she is. This book leaves with new powers, and Kylie still being in a tug of war with her emotions over Lucas and Derek.

The best thing about this book, is the charact...more

C.C. Hunter grew up in Alabama, where she caught lightning bugs, ran barefoot, and regularly rescued potential princes, in the form of Alabama bullfrogs, from her brothers. Today, she's still fascinated with lightning bugs, mostly wears shoes, but has turned her focus to rescuing mammals. She now lives in Texas with her four rescued cats, one dog, and a prince of a husband, who for the record, is...more

“When one door closes, find another."
Kylie gazed back up. "And what if there isn't another door?"
"Then you try the window."
"And if there's not a window?" Kylie asked.
"Then you find a sledgehammer and make a window.”
