For real though, if he could crawl up Kylie's arse and live there, he would.

EDIT:

So I've had enough time to convince myself that Kylie's gonna end up with Derek... I'm in depression mode. I was just trying to keep my hopes down, because I get dissapointed a lot.
So now i'm just like this

'"I love you," he said, his voice almost musical with happiness.
She shot him a scowl. "Isn't saying that a bit dangerous considering these aren't wooden swords and the ends aren't even taped?"
He laughed.'

Pre-reading review:

LOOK AT THAT COVER!


Kylie's all:


I'm personally throwing a big "THANK GOD SHE HAS TO CHOOSE BETWEEN THE TWO GUYS" Party. Thank the Lord! She's gonna make a decision! (*mutters* please not Lucas please not Lucas please not Lucas please not Lucas please not Lucas!)

Half a star for the lovely cover, and half a star for the very few decent secondary characters. Yes, I know, I'm being generous but I'm in a giving mood. Free sweets for everyone!

P.S. hope she ends up with Lucas.I know what he did was wrong but think about it....He did everything just to be with her! because when he would be in wolf council he could change things just to be with her! He loves her with all his heart i can tell by the way she explains him and i'm pretty sure that he would want Kylie to be his only love his only passion his only....wife not that stupid were he was supposed to marry for his fathers trust.

Every other book in the series has been brilliantly magnificent and quickly became my favorite. I'm pretty much shocked to the bones that i didn't love this one, especially because it's the last book in the series.

Ok, so I can't say I'm very surprised. I can however say that even though I predicted it, I still enjoyed it. I have a few issues with it- but seeing as the series is over I'll just put them to rest too.







I really don't understand how people can pick Lucas. No matter how you dress it up he still cheated- whether or not it was for 'the greater good' of his pack, he still cheated, lied and had the cheek to be so possessive whilst this was all going on! They've always- to me- had more of

I have to say reading this second time around I do agree that the last book is my favorite in the series, I would give it a 4.5/5 stars. Also completely agree with what I said first time around reading because this isn't the best series I've ever read but it's just pure entertainment to read!

Spoilers may be concerned; I'll really try to avoid them. I fell that I read this book just to finish this series. First two books were amazing. I loved them, but since then it was worst and worst.
I don't actually know what to say about this book, it was quite about nothing, and since the beginning, I knew that it was going to finish with happily ever after. So pathetic. And finishing the whole Mario thing was so unbelievable fake!
I never liked Derek and nothing change.

OMG I am so flipping mad a Lucas right now!!! I just finished book 4 and I loved it of course. But now it's gonna drive me crazy til this books comes out.. Can't wait. I really hope she chooses Lucas I know what he did is wrong and I really like Derrek but the passionate Love that Lucas has for her has me won over. Anyway can't wait for chosen at nightfall to come out so we can see who she chooses...

I thought this book was by far the weakest book in the series. Kylie had developed into a whiny self-obsessed pansy who spent most of the book too afraid to face her own problems. Sorry to any Lucas fans but I thought she made a poor decision and the ending was forced. Lucas was an over-controlling, possessive and jealous a## the entire time and she glorified him and refused to see any flaws in him. I think it would be different if their relationship was based on more than just a schoolyard crus ...more

JUST CHOOSE LUCAS PLEASE. Derek just annoys the shit out of me -_- he's the safe option. Lucas isn't and I find him a more interesting character.

I DONT GET HOW PEOPLE WANT HER TO PICK DEREK LIKE WHY. OKAY I GET YOU'RE MAD A LUCAS. BUT. JFISODJFIOSJASD. just no Derek -.-

After reading-

OMG this was a perfect ending.

Let me just say I really love this series. And I love Derek and Lucas equally. But if that happened to me i would choose Derek. Unlike Lucas he isn't embarrassed to be seen with Kylie, just because his clan thinks its wrong. I know he's doing it for her in his own way but that doesn't give him the right to always be overprotective all the time. And Kylie always apologizes when she's done nothing wrong. That really frustrates me.

5 Stars!

“You will come to me, Kylie Galen, come to me willing to die, to suffer at my hands for my pleasure, because the price will be too great! Your weakness will take you down.” (Mario page 367).


The end of an era!!
(Bit don’t worry this may be the end of Kylie’s story but Della has her own trilogy and Miranda has her own novel as well - so you can get your Shadow Falls fix!)

As you can see from my rating, I was not a huge fan of the book or the series. Here are some of the reasons why:
1) Kylie is selfish and an entirely unlikable character. Throughout the whole series, I just kept wondering why I was reading it. While the others characters in the book tell her how she is awesome and selfless, all I can see is how judgmental and self-centered she is.
2) She is constantly obsessed with doing what is 'right,' which generally involves always telling the truth and not ha

A thrilling end to the bestselling series that started with Born at Midnight. If you loved the first four books, you'll find this one hard to let go off long after you read the last word.

Though I wasn't a fan of the series from day one, this captured my attention. It had everything a good supernatural read had: love triangle with two smoking guys, Derek (faerie)and Lucas (werewolf), strong and independent lead (Kylie) and a good plot. Fast forward four books and here we are now, at the end.

Okay, I'm finally getting around to reviewing this. I've been procrastinating writing this cuz I wanted to give a really good review without giving things away. So here we go...

I just want to start by saying what an amazing author C.C. is. Her books always pull me in and keep my reading really late into the night, and this book was no different!

I was sad going into this book knowing that this will be the last book through Kylie's POV, but C.C. does a really good job at ending her story. I mean s

This was Shadow Falls for Kylie, and everyone in it. ^_^
Such a sweet, protecting and loving family.

And what a fabulous ending! This read had me wanting to punch some of the characters, hug them; or squealing, crying and doing the happy dance! PERFECT! :D

Due to how it ended, I don't feel VERY bad at saying goodbye to Kylie, Lucas, Derek, Della, Miranda, Perry, Holiday, Burnett, and each and every character in the book.

“She tossed her towel on her dresser and turned to the bed where shed left her PJs. Only it wasn't just her PJs on the bed anymore.
Lucas, eyes wide, sat on the foot of her bed, about four feet from where she stood completely naked.
She squealed.
He laughed.
She dashed for the towel.
Once she had it around her, she glared from a still grinning Lucas to the door. "I'm killing Della!"
He laughed again. "I'm afraid I might have to protect her for this one.”

“I...I'm sorry," Kylie mumbled.
"Don't you even try to talk your way out of me being pissed!" Burnett growled. "Not a word!"
"I just..."
"That's two words and I said not one!" he snapped, and he swiped his hand through the air for emphasis.
Kylie bit down on her lip, and wouldn't you know it that's when the tears started flowing. Big, fat, and fast tears. She sniffled and wiped her cheeks with the back of her hand. Her breath caught in her chest. But damn it. Why couldn't this have happened when she was alone?
"Those tears do not affect me, young lady!" He pointed a finger at her. While she couldn't hear his heart beat to the rhythm of a lie, she heard it in his voice.

"I just..."
"Did I say you could talk?" he asked. He did three more pacing laps, as if working off steam, before he looked at her again. "Where were you going, Kylie?"
When she just looked at him, he bit out, "Answer me."
"You said I couldn't talk.”
