Taken at Dusk (Shadow Falls #3)
Step into Shadow Falls, a camp for teens with supernatural powers. Here friendship thrives, love takes you by surprise, and our hearts possess the greatest magic of all.
Kylie Galen wants the truth so badly she can taste it. The truth about who her real family is, the truth about which boy she’s meant to be with—and the truth about what her emerging powers mean. But s
I’d kill for you, Kylie Galen. But more than that, I’d die for you.”She felt a tear roll down her cheek. “You’d better not die on me, Lucas Parker.”
yup I'm back to being team Lucas! xD
I really like how the plot is such a mystery and when you're on the kindle version you read the last page and then say, 'wait that's it?' because the plot keeps you glued to the pages so much. I am gett...more
This series always seems to somehow entrap me in its pages. I read Taken At Dusk in a matter of hours and I loved every moment of it.
We are back at Shadow Falls and Kylie is still trying to process everything that has happened to her with the vampires. Things are never quiet for Kylie though, soon a women who cannot seem to remember who she is, is stalking Kylie and bringing a grave...more
I was so excited when I finally was able to read this book early, and as always, CC Hunter never fails to amaze me with her story-telling, I just loved this series. And I liked the new characters and mystery she added that has kept me more interested. So the story deals with Kylie, who is trying to figure out what she really is and trying to fit where she really belong in this new world she found. Kylie seemed to grow more through out the story which is really real...more
Taken At Dusk is book 3 of the Shadow Falls series, a series that is named after the summer camp turned school for supernatural adolescents. At least I thought Shadow Falls was supposed to be a school beginning in book 2. However, it turned out at 83% in book 3 Shadow Falls was "getting the camp ready to become a full-blown school." What?!
All this time Kylie was going to a camp, not a school. Fine. Then where were the camp activities in book 3 that supposed to have...more
So we now know what Kylie Galen is. She is a…wait for it…yup, here it comes, oh God it’s still so damn funny… A…C-H-A-M-E-L-E-O-N! Yes! You read that right! She’s a freaking lizard! Oh God! It actually took my brain a few seconds to come around the fact that what I read was the word “chameleon”. So jokes aside, it does seem to be the perfect name for her kind. She just realized from Red whose real name was Robertson that she is a different kind of supernat...more

I really hate this series. I'd hoped that it would get better, but it hasn't. The writing is awful at best and the plot line is either her gushing about a guy, her moaning about her life, or her not being able to make her mind up. Sometimes all at the same time!
No but really this book series is abysmal. She just started saying about how her mum should forgive her dad for cheating on her. Quite simply, fuck off.
The fact that she couldn't forgive the guy she flir...more
When Derek tried to get close to her she always pushed him away telling him she didn't want the other campers to know how she feels when he's close, that she was ashamed of her feelings (desire, blah, blah). She repeated that same sentence over in over in book 2, and now it's Derek fault because he coudn't stand watching her always thinking about Lucas or because he dind't stood by h...more
Absolutely brilliant :)
"I'm in love with you, Kylie." He looked almost embarrassed by the admission. He jumped up, took one step away, then swung around and faced her again. "I don't expect you to say it back and I don't think this will change your mind about anything. But you deserved to know. And I needed to tell you because.....I've never felt this way before-for anyone."
"But I have to go. Thank you, Kylie Galen. Thank you for being my friend. Thank you for teaching me to think beyon...more
Shadow Falls is an addicting series that keeps you on the edge of your seat. Taken at Dusk is the third book in this intense series and was as thrilling as usual. Taken at Dusk might be my favorite in the series so far.
Kylie is still in the dark but what kind of supernatural she is. Problems arise in Shadow Falls between the campers (soon to be students) and outsiders continue to cause problems. Taken at Dusk continues where Awake at Dawn left off. Kylie is still in...more
Lucas keeps hoping that she will become a werewolf, but Kylie doesn't think she is. She knows that she is something, but no one knows. She is ge...more
One of my favorite things showcased in this book was how other people have lives. Not like I'm saying they don't in other books but somehow Ms. Hunter manages to capitalize on it so well! I'm just as invested in Miranda and Perry and Holiday and Burnett as I am with Kylie and her guys!
And speaking of guys...I'm back on Derek's team! Seriously how can...more
Kylie still doesn't know what she is, and in this installment she is being visited by a woman with a shaved head with a huge scar on it, who is sometimes pregnant but doesn't know her name or what happened to her. her only message is "one will live and one will die." So that's the big mystery of...more
The love triangle continues. In the first book, I was leaning toward Lucas. In the second book, I couldn't decide. Now, I want Kylie to choose Derek. However, Derek has done something that really up...more
"I feel as if nothing in my life makes sense anymore. Everything is changing."
Holiday wrapped her hair into a rope. "Change isn't the worst thing, Kylie. It's when things aren't changing that you have to worry."
"I disagree." Kylie dropped her chin down on her kneecap. "I mean, I know change is necessary for growth and all that stuff. But I'd like one thing in my life to feel...grounded. I need a touchstone. Something that feels real."
Holiday raised her brows. "Shadow Falls is re...more

Quick & Dirty: Really fun YA paranormal with an engaging story, fun characters, and a really good premise. The drama is a little over done at times, but overall I really enjoyed this book and would highly recommend it.
Opening Sentence: They were here.
Kylie Galen has been at Shadow Falls all summer now, but she still hasn’t been able to figure out what she is. With new powers and traits emerging all the time she honestly has no idea what she is...more
This book is one massive labyrinth. There are a lot of passages I need to get through—dark ones before I reached the goal. It was exhausting. There were fun times though. But I felt drained. When I gotten to my desired destination, I don’t feel fulfilled. It wasn’t a rewarding moment.
You have no idea how much I wanted to know what Kylie was. That’s why I compared this book to a maze. Because some of the things happened were dragging. It took a while before I finally got the answer. When I f...more
First of all I am glad I finally got to find out what Kylie is, it took forever! I totally get it though and I can't wait to learn more. As for the rest of the plot there were some interesting things going on. For one Red really surprised me. It was nice to see more of the friendship between Kylie, Della, and Miranda and what happened when Kylie's old life crept in. I feel bad for Kylie in general because...more

"Kiss my apologetic ass!" Della snapped.”
Kylie stopped and swerved around... "Okay, let's get something out in the open. I know you had sex with Derek."
"Damn!" Perry said, and grinned. "This is gonna be better than I thought.”
