My prediction for this book is that Lucas is going to be forced by his grandma to marry a were like Fredricka ( the were-bitch) in order to stay in the pack, but Lucas wants Kylie so I have a feeling he'll end up leaving the pack and being Kylie's soul mate. As for Derek, I'm at a loss as what is going to happen. i favor Lucas, I think because he's loved Kylie so long I think that they truly are soul mates, but I love Derek and his sensitivity swell:(((

WHISPERS AT MOONRISE just didn't quite do it for me, unfortunately.

The fourth and penultimate book in CC Hunter's SHADOW FALLS series brings us back to the Shadow Falls camp with Kylie Galen and the gang. We have just learned that Kylie isn't a vampire, a werewolf, a witch, or part-fae; she is all of them. Of course, we don't know what this means for Kylie; we just heard it from some dead guy

OMG i cant wait until October. It seems like this is the month for everything I want to read to come out. But hey I am NOT complaining. Now to make my little comments:
1) The cover could of been soooooo much better
2) I hope Holiday and the big sexy FRU vampire agent get together FINALLY
3) Miranda and Perry are goig to fall in love
4) Della is going to get a boyfriend who can treat her right and who knows what she is
5) Lastly the whole Kylie-Lucas-Derek situation. Really a part of me is confuse

‘Moonrise she thought. She felt again the whispers echoing in her mind. Whispers she couldn’t understand, whispers that both lured and frightened her.’ (Kylie Galen page 41)

Well we finally know what type of supernatural Kylie is - A Chameleon (not the lizard variety). now if only she could get everyone at Shadow Falls to believe her.

It was nice that Mario did not appear in WaM, it would be a bit boring and tedious if he appeared in every novel wanting a fight.

I devoured this book in a couple of days. I really can't get enough of the characters in Shadow Falls! Every installment just endears me more and more to their interactions, foibles, and character flaws. It all makes me love them the more. Except for one particular character in this installment. *grumbles emphatically* Whose name I can't say because of spoilers. Damn you spoilers, I so want to call this character out on their bad behavior!! Needless to say, that particular character went down in ...more

Oh my God!
Kylie is a Chameleon. What!?
And finally her pattern had changed Supernatural, as in, she can be a witch, fae, vamp, shifter...
It's so Cool!

but everyone was like

and Kylie was like

She totally poofed Zac Efron in their cabin instead of a 6-pack soda when she was a witch. It's more of Della's fault and it cracked me up. LOL

So many things are going on and since Kylie is just a girl, she can't handle too much.

She needs a break and her decision at the end is what's important. Hmmm...BTW

-Firstly, the writing was atrocious — not all of it was bad but A LOT of it was.

-The plot was weak and predictable. Kylie had yet another mysterious ghost asking her for help to catch her killer/find her body/get closure… Naturally, Kylie did very little investigating… But she did do a whole lot of moaning. So that's something… Right?
Also, Kylie tried to come to terms with who and what she was — which was annoying because that was what she was doing in the last three bloody books. Surely

Okay, we're four books into this series, and I'm afraid I'm calling it quits. The concept for this series was so unique and exciting, and it could have been a truly epic story. We're talking X-Men meets Harry Potter and blows them both out of the water! Unfortunately, it's fallen victim to stale plot, extremely repetitive dialogue/thoughts from the characters, and a "love triangle" so infuriating that I don't want the heroine to get either guy anymore.

It seems I'm in the minority on disliking th

"Why does my life need to be so damn hard?"

Kylie Galen thought finding out what she was would make things better, but it didn't. If anything it just complicated things even more. She has finally discovered what type of supernatural she is, well, sort of. She knows the name, but not exactly what it truly entails. She is a chameleon and no one seems to know exactly what that is, but Kylie's hopeful it doesn'

Kylie knows what she is now, but not what it means. She’s a chameleon? She’s a lizard? She has no idea what’s going on now and has more questions than answers. And to add to that, why did that ghost have Holly’s face? Holly isn’t dead yet…but does that just mean that she will?

I still struggling with my feelings towards this series.

I’m not going to go into to much detail in this review, this is book 4 so if you want my thoughts on the characters check out my other reviews, because they haven’t really changed.

Ok, first things first, the damn love triangle! I just want it to be over! I have gone back and forth between Lucas and Derek so many times during these books and I’m just done. At the beginning of this series, I favoured Lucas, now he’s an overprotective ass
You can't take these books seriously. Which I don't. They're so bad they're good.

The thing that annoys me about these books is not the dragged plot that just repeats itself (I survived Glee season 3).

But Kylie. Everyone only thinks about Kylie's safety, Kylie's species, Kylie's love life.

And everyone forgives her and defends her. In their world she can do no wrong. Sometimes it makes sense, like when she went into the woods to save... someone. Other times it didn't. Since when can a child ask so
OMFG!!! I'm crying like a freaking baby right now!!! Why did it have to end this way?! WHY!!!!!?

You know that feeling when you read a book, get completely lost in the story, and before you know it you finished it and you just want more and more and more? You know that if you won't know what happens next soon, you will explode? Well that's how i felt. This series seriously NEVER disappoints me! :) I have waited SO LONG FOR THIS HEAVEN!!!

Whispers at Moonrise is the fourth book in the Shadow Falls series. And with only one more book planned in the series, I know I'm going to be deeply saddened to leave this world which I've really enjoyed spending time in.

Kylie is living at Shadow Falls, a camp for supernaturals. But Kylie isn't like the other kids at camp, she's not a vampire, or werewolf, or shifter, or fae. She's a chameleon, which means she has the DNA for many different types of supernatural. Not many ch

2) That she found out what she was.
3) That we actually found out a little about Holiday's past

Kylie is still trying to come to terms with being a chameleon. At least, that's what her dead father keeps insisting that she is even though no one else seems to have heard of chameleon supernaturals. She's also attempting to deal with the fact that Lucas' pack doesn't want him to see her anymore because she's not a werewolf. Life is getting complicated again. But all of that falls to the wayside when Kylie's newest ghost shows up. This one looks exactly like one of her closest friends - a frien ...more

Second time reading, first time reviewing

Kylie is too nice for her own good. She's like a saint, so patient and understanding and always putting others first. It makes her a great protector, but she kind of gets walked on and her feelings hurt. I liked seeing her learn about being a chameleon and find some of her family and people. I do like Lucas, but this time through I'm more team Derek. I forgot that Lucas basically keeps Kylie his dirty little secret and keeps important things from her. Mea

Again, this is a 3.something rather review.

I'll say that I'm glad that some of the romance has worked itself out, even if some of it got all messed up, too. The family bonds are... Yeah. Interesting.

I think I consistently appreciate the ghost parts of these stories. They add in some real drama and spookiness in an otherwise very romance oriented series. This time especially was creepy because of who the ghost was and what they were trying to accomplish. There was a real applicable ghost story th

We are back with Kylie who is finally finding herself. She is starting to really realize who she is, and what she is. She’s still causing trouble with her two best friends. And, than there are the two guys who love her. Derek and Lucas. Oh, how I love thee. I seriously don’t know who I want Kylie with. I like them both for their own r

“Take some very deep breaths," Miranda said. "Relax. Concentrate. Then envision a frosty six-pack and wiggle your pinky."
A frosty six-pack. Kylie inhaled. He held out her pinky, and right then Della chimed in. "We are talking a six=pack of soda, not a cold guy with good-looking abs, right?"

There was a strange kind of sizzle in the air. And suddenly appearing in front of the refrigerator was a shirtless, shivering guy with great abs. His blue eyes studied the three of them in complete bafflement.

"What the...!" he muttered.
Kylie gasped.
Miranda giggled.
