I don't know why everyone is so against Chase. I really like him and think they belong together. Yes, he hid something from her but maybe it was for her safety or even his own. Steve always seemed kinda blah to me. ...more

How are u going to end Eternal like that, release an awesome cover and then make me suffer until October, C.C. Hunter? Huh? The nerve!


Finally! I finished it and I was so happy with how it ended. But I am sad to see it go.

Thank you, C.C. Hunter for sharing your wonderful writing with readers like me. I deeply appreciate it.

I will most definitely miss Shadow Falls.

Update: DNF. I'm done with this shit. I knew it was coming but that doesn't make it any better. Chase is a lying, manipulative ass and I can't understand the appeal at all. I've seen rocks that are more attractive than him.
And another thing: lying is not hot or mysterious and just because a guy comes crawling back like a pathetic roach doesn't mean he's worth your time. Honestly.

Before reading:

I swear to God, if Della goes back to Chase, I am going to seriously hurt someone.

Why do these girls keep picking the wrong guy ALL the time?!

I want Della to be with Chase (he keeps things from Della but Della keeps things from him.) I HATE Steve what kind of guy leaves her like that and won't answer the phone. I do hope Kylie and Lucas are in this book and Miranda gets her happy ending!! I like Love triangles but this story doesn't seem like a love triangle b/c Steve left the story. If he comes back he sure dose NOT deserve her.

I'm very happy with who she ended up with too (But I won't tell) ;)

*I'm rerating a lot of the books I read in the past to fit my current taste. Most of the time it's downrating books that I thought I really liked at the time but there are a few exceptions. :) And it'd be too much to try to reflect these changes on my blog, so the ratings will remain as the original ones on Xingsings.

This was a fantastic conclusion to this amazing series! C.C. Hunter has always blown me away with her writing. She always manages to capture the right amount of humor, action, and romance in all of her books, and it makes for such an enjoyable read. This book has it all: drama (it knows no bounds in this one), pure craziness (come on, it's Della we're talking about here), susp

Della has grown into her new Reborn powers much more so than in the previous two novels but must put them to use all too soon. Her father is being charged with his sister's murder. Della knows her father isn't capable of murder but it's difficult to concentrate on clearing his name when her aunt's ghost keeps insisting he killed her. It's even harder to concentrate with a sexy vampire and a hot shape-shifter vying for her affections.

I had such mixed feelings when I finished this book. I was flyi

I definitely liked Della's trilogy more than Kylie's story. Della was less annoying and also more active. As in: she actually investigated. So her journey was definitely amazing. I loved that we got a multiple POV (Edit: I didn't really like how the two POVs just jumped around. You were invested in a scene and then BAM, different scene. And a lot was left to imagine for the reader, like Chase's fight at the prison. But the boring love triangle scenes were fully developed. Just great). C

Still here. Still miss you. Still love you.

I'm writing this review wit a crying and laughing eye, how you would say it in Germany. Unspoken was definitely the best book in the After Dark series, the most emotional, exciting, saddest and surprising one.

First of all, I repeat myself : I love Della. She is so so tough and fights for her dreams, although she is a broken hearted girl inside. However, thanks to the bonds in her life, she stands up and thought - no matter that others said.

I loved all the previous Shadow Falls books, and it makes me so sad that I didn't feel the same way about Unspoken. Sure, I loved the story, and I adore most of the characters, but I just can't stand the love interest. Seriously, why does Hunter keep on doing this? No, it's not sexy to be crazy jealous and acting like a little bitch, (view spoiler). No, it's not sexy for you to constantly only be thinking about sex and how to get it on. No, it's not sexy to try and force De ...more

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It was a really easy read that got me out of my reading slump. I actually like the After Dark series more than the original and just could not put this book down. Though I did kind of feel like scenes here and there cut out when they switched POV and that it did not flow as well as some of the other books.

A perfect end to a fantastic series, UNSPOKEN delivers two exciting and danger-filled mysteries, a tumultuous love story, a caustic but lovable heroine, a charming and swoon-worthy if not entirely trustworthy male protagonist, an overprotective but heroic father figure, a couple of persistent ghosts, several beloved characters, humorous dialogue, great writing, and an emotional roller coaster ride or a few. It promises to be wildly entertaining, completely captivating, more than a little bit ner ...more

Ever since I picked up Born at Midnight four years ago, I've loved every one of these Shadow Falls books, so I was ecstatic to receive this book for review! I really enjoyed this last installment of Della's series!

This book wasn't fun at all. All the shadow falls books have been fun, this one was just depressing, which was mostly due to our narrator and her never ending self-hatred.
Also the scenes were split between Chase and Della (if you didn't already know who she would choose, the POV's really give it away) and they just cut out in the middle of conversations and it would go back in forth for literally the entire book. I don't know if there was a full scene in here. And the entire book was the SAME E
I was annoyed with the start of this one. Della was once again not listening to things, but jumping to conclusions, which lead to issues later. Like any teen thinks she knows all, when she didn't know crap. I liked that Burrnet tried to reign in Della by pointing out her mistakes in a good way.

The way that Della treated Chase annoyed me as well. She knows how he feels about her, has even admitted to herself that she loves him, yet time and time again she yells at him and pushes him away.

another perfect ending to an amazing novel! I have loved the shadow falls series for a long time and when I found out there was a spin off series I was overjoyed. while it was a trilogy, I feel that the pacing was wonderful, which is true for this book. there was so much to be concluded and tied together and it was all resolved by the end, even if I was worried near the last few pages about some things not happening the way I wanted them too. this book was absolutely phenomenal and I'm always re ...more

This book was way above my expectations, it had the perfect amount of humor, mystery and action to balance it out!!

Della is the MC of this series and a very good one at it! She is headstrong and determined to get her dad off a murder that he's accused of. The only lead she has in the beginning of the book is Chase, who also happen

*My Thoughts*

Unspoken is the final novel in the Shadow Falls: After Dark trilogy. This trilogy features 17-year old vampire Della Tsang, the best friend of Kylie Galen, and Miranda Kane. It has been a very long 9 months for Della. First, she finds out that she carries the gene that transformed her int

Spoilers for the first two in Della's story!!!!
Just had an all nighter reading the first two books in Della's trilogy, love chase bit I'm kinda getting annoyed by the whole "I can't like him/I think I love him" scenario. C.C. Hunter is a good writer but even at the beginning of the 'After Dark' I felt it was just like Kylie's story... Uncle= Grandparents. Love, "good guy" then "bad guy". Honestly I liked the story so I'm kinda hoping for a Miranda story soon.
Was feeling disconnected during the reading but I liked the mystery.

Interesting ending to Della's trilogy. I struggled alot with parts of this book. But others were so intriguing and fun that I never even considering putting this down. So let's chat about what I liked and didn't.

Things I loved
- The development of Della's family and her relationship with them. Don't get me wrong, they weren't all happy developments. But they were well written and not sloppily thrown together. I loved seeing how these relationships shaped and affected Della. And it was just so int

​This book was a lot better about having a strong female role, because i was afraid that Della was going to become Bella from Twilight! The book focuses less on romance as Della dives in to her job as investigator and solving cases. A case she works on is trying to solve a murder mystery with a lot of her family past involved in it. A lot of twists come in this book about dark secrets of the vampire council and Della is once again confused on what to do. im not sure what to think of this book bu ...more

These books were so much better than the original Shadow Falls ones were. I love Della, I want the best for her. And I like Chase, even if he was 'hiding' things from her. I still think he was a way better love interest than the two buffoons Kylie had.

One thing about these books I will say, though, is that they are unnecessarily long. Was there any reason each of these books had to be 400 pages? There was too much repetition, a few too many random scenes that didn't progress the plot or the cha

I received this ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review, I was in no way compensated for this review.

C.C. Hunter brings an exciting and thrilling conclusion to the Shadow Falls: After Dark trilogy. Unspoken brings us to the end of Della’s story and I couldn’t be happier about it. Well…maybe a teeny bit happier as my ship sunk faster than the Titanic. But sigh, can’t win them all!

Della’s main focus continues to be trying to clear her father’s name for the death of his sister so many
