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-whispering gift.
But she is still confused and desperately wants to know who and what she is.
With Lucas gone, she's drawn even closer to Derek who never hided his deep affection for Kylie. But other Love stories and romances unfold during the story. There is Miranda and her crush on Perry the powerful shape shifter and there is Holiday the camp leader and the Vampire...

In Awake at Dawn friendships and relationships, that have been formed in Born At Midnight grow deeper and more meaningful and I loved seeing this. The unusal friendship between Della, Miranda and Kylie is beautiful. The girls fight and piss themselves off ever so often but in the end they love each other and are truly loyal.

Kylie grows and comes slowly to terms with being supernatural and not "normal" anymore. Still, deep down she's lonely since she still is no step further about discovering her true self. But in Awake at Dawn we will see Kylie grow even more exceptional than she already is and there are a few twists and turns you might not expect that were truly intriguing.

Kylie and the boys... Oh My.. the boys! Lucas is gone and Derek is there trying to get Kylie's full attention, but she's still reluctant to fully commit to Derek. She stands herself in the way of letting her emotions loose, but on the other side there is still Lucas in her mind...

I admit, I fell for Lucas in Born At Midnight but now I am so very torn. Derek really really grew in this book and I crushed hard on him here... He's sexy, hot, sweet, cute and ..did I say hot? I remember CC saying that people who are Team Lucas might change their mind after reading Awake at Dawn... well she didn't promise too much. I still love Lucas (a lot!!) but now, I'm torn between those two hot boys, just like Kylie...

I also very much love the deep connection she has with Holiday the Camp leader. They are more than just "teacher" and "student" she's more than a sister and I loved that Kylie had someone she could confide to ...

Awake at Dawn was full of growing relationships, friendships, love and romance. Following Kylie's journey to discover her true self was wonderful and I loved every minute I spend with Kylie and the others. This will be a series that will have a place in my heart with characters I deeply care for and love. I can't wait to learn more about Kylie, I can't wait to see who she will choose and I can't wait to hear more about Holiday, Miranda, Perry and Della.. Is there a place for me in the Shadow Falls camp? ...
