Midnight Hour is the conclusion of the Shadow Falls: After Dark series and it is given from Miranda Kane’s point of view.

Miranda and her sister go to a fortune teller that practices dark magic. When something goes terribly wrong, Miranda finds herself accused of blowing up a drug den and wearing a moving magical tattoo. Just when she thought all the bad has fallen her sister disappears.

There is love triangle between Miranda, Perry and Shawn. Which it seemed pretty obvious from the start which wa

I'm so upset that this series has come to an end!!! It was a perfect way to end it, with a book from Miranda's POV... Although I adore books about witches so I do wish there would have been more! This one, just like the others in the Shadow Falls/After Dark Series, was filled with humor, suspense, and heartwarming moments. Hunter has the amazing ability to make you laugh and cry in the same sentence. She is a master storyteller and has created such an incredible backdrop for amazing characters t ...more

As sad as it was to know that in a few weeks she wouldn’t call Shadow Falls her home, she knew change was inevitable. And while this address wouldn’t be listed on forms, it would always be listed in her heart. She took with her the life lessons she learned. Here, she’d found self-confidence. She’d learned how to dream, how to never turn away from a leap of faith.

She learned the value of friendships. Of laughter during hard times. Of love.

I can’t believe it is over! I have grown to really love these characters and will surely miss them. These books have always got me out of my reading slumps and been with me for some time now. For the conclusion I was happy to hear from Miranda’s POV, but I would have liked more books from her than the one. Miranda definitely picked the right guy in the end and provided a great fair well to the Shadow Falls world. If you have not read this series, what are you waiting for? You really are missing ...more

*My Thoughts*

Midnight Hour is the fourth and final installment in C.C Hunter's Shadow Falls: After Dark series. In what may be the most ironic move on the author's part, dyslexic witch Miranda Kane gets to close out the series. As readers of this series know, Miranda is the roommate of Chameleon Kylie Galen, and Vampire Della Tsang. But, what's even more curious, is that Hunter adds the perspectives of shape-shifter Perry Gomez, (M

For a change the love triangle didn't bother me. I didn't love it, but I also didn't hate it. maybe that's because it wasn't so prominent and neither of the guys were dicks. And that I really love Perry. His storyline was awesome. And I live for the Perry-Burnett relashionship. Again, I loved the multiple POVs. But there were still a few tiny things that bothered me.
1. That Shawn just found another girl. In all three love triangles everybody was happy in the end. Just great. But doesn't
Turns out Miranda Kane had been worried about never being a good witch for nothing, she finally found her way and her magical abilities are awesome.

Glad she got her own story finally but sad to leave Shadow Falls behind after reading the novella collection next and rounding out another great series set in that world and following up with all the characters who inhabit it.

It looks like this is the final book in the series of Shadow Falls books and spin-offs. I love these characters, and I am really going to miss them. It took many books for me to warm up to Miranda, but I am glad she was the lead in this one. I love a good transformation, and Miranda went from the helpless, whining, constant-obsessing-over-boy-drama third wheel in the group to a badass who can fight her own battles... while obsessing over boy drama a little less. The girl grew on me, and I think ...more

I finally, finally, finally finished this series!

I really love these characters. I feel like they have grown into some of my own best friends.

With that being said, I tend to lose interest in the story line with this book and the last one and was pretty much just holding out to know what everyone's final fate was.

I can't put my finger on why exactly but I just couldn't get into the mystery and the problem solving. I guess I just have enough faith that the characters will figure it out that I don'

I will not get emotional writing this review, I promise! Who am I kidding? I read the dedication page and got emotional! I’ve been with the Shadow Falls series all six years that it’s been showing up on shelves. The mystery that was Kylie Galen, the snarky vampire that was Della Tsang, and the dyslexic and oh-so-lovable witch that was Miranda, hold a special

Review: 5 out of 5 stars

I think Midnight Hour by C.C. Hunter might be my first 5 star rating all year! I am so sad to see the Shadow Falls: After Dark series come to an end, it’s been one of my favorite YA Paranormal series.

Midnight Hour is our favorite kind-hearted, lovable and at times ditzy witch Miranda Kane’s book, she has to go through many struggles in this but along with the other characters we have met throughout the series and their unwavering support she got through it all.

Dyslexia is NOT A CURSE!!!!

Today I was procrastinating doing my homework by going through goodreads. I clicked on Midnight Hour book because I am sucker for covers with girls in floaty dresses (shallow but sadly true). I was completely shocked and insulted by the first sentence of the blurb:

"Being a dyslexic witch is a curse in itself,"

I am dyslexic and proud of it. Dyslexia allows people to think outside the box and be creative in ways non-dyslexics can't. That is not to say Dyslexia is alw

Oh, how I hate to be at the end of all the Shadow Falls books! I still have the novellas, but I have thoroughly enjoyed each and every one of these 8 books. Hunter has a way of pulling you into her stories and making you identify with her characters. I am looking forward to reading another series from her!

Such a great ending to a great series. The friendships in this book was one of the main reasons I loved it so much. Damn though cc Hunter has a thing for love triangles. Who knew that Miranda was such a badass. I think Della is my fav from the trio.

This series was so fun to read. I love all the characters and it was great getting to see each of the girls and them coming into themselves and their powers. The romantic relationships were good, but the friendships were the best part. I love seeing girls empower and support each other. The different supernatural creatures made the series very interesting and the bits of humor lightened the books. I highly recommend this series and will definitely be reading these books again!

Ugh! The series is over! I have been addicted to this series ever since I picked up the very first book: Born at Midnight. Once I started it, I binged on the whole series! To see the characters leave any future pages that could have come breaks my heart. Okay, so on to the review.
First, this book is Miranda's story. She's a dyslexic witch with issues. Her family is a hot mess. She has a choice to make between two very different guys. Magic has gone awry and she is t
I started reading C.C Hunter's books back when Kylie first started at Shadow Falls and was a total misfit. But then she met her two best friends: Della and Miranda. They were a balanced trio, always keeping each other in line.

I was SO excited to finally get into Miranda's head. Her and her pinky swingy head. :D The book starts out with Miranda and Tabitha (sisters) going to a cabin to get their fortunes told because Tabitha wants to know if what she has with her boyfriend is real. But things go

Returning to the world of Shadow falls, Midnight Hour gives us the much desired adventure starting the beloved friend and witch, Miranda. While going to see a love witch with her sister, things go very awry and once again and Miranda is thrown into another action packed magical adventure. Along the way she encounters, ghosts, explosions, gangs and armadillos, oh my! Through it all, she has to sort out her love life and protect those she loves.

Midnight Hour has everything you could wish for in a book: romance, humor, suspense, action, and undeniable lovely strong beautiful characters!
You won't be able to stop yourself reading it because it's so addictive. And once you've finished it, you will regret it and wish the book has a few more pages...
