One night Kylie Galen finds herself at the wrong party, with the wrong people, and it changes her life forever. Her mother ships her off to Shadow Falls—a camp for troubled teens, and within hours of arriving, it becomes painfully clear that her fellow campers aren’t just “troubled.” Here at Shadow Falls, vampires, werewolves, shapshifters, witches and fairies train side by side—learning to harness their powers, control their magic and live in the normal world.
Kylie’s never felt normal, but surely she doesn’t belong here with a bunch of paranormal freaks either. Or does she? They insist Kylie is one of them, and that she was brought here for a reason. As if life wasn’t complicated enough, enter Derek and Lucas. Derek’s a half-fae who’s determined to be her boyfriend, and Lucas is a smokin’ hot werewolf with whom Kylie shares a secret past. Both Derek and Lucas couldn’t be more different, but they both have a powerful hold on her heart.
Even though Kylie feels deeply uncertain about everything, one thing is becoming painfully clear Falls is exactly where she belongs…
This book started a little rocky for me, and at first I wasn't sure about it at all, but after I got into the novel (30-50 pages) I ended up loving it. This novel kind of puts me in mind of Hex Hall, which I absolutely LOVED, because of the camp of supernatural "freaks."
There were two things that kept me hooked in this one: Boys and the mystery of what kind of supernatural Kylie was.
Three potiental love interests in this book had me flipping the pages faster than I thought humanly possible. They all had likable quailties. Kylie could have easily picked any of the three as her main love interest and I would have still loved the possibilty that the other two were still on back-up. Such a great romance in there.
Kylie's supernatural ability makes her the freakiest freak at the school. Her power is as much a mystery to everyone else as it is to her. She didn't even really know she was gifted until she was shipped off to this camp. I love it when a main character is super special in some way.
Read this one if you like HAWT love interests and mutlitple supernatural creatures in one story.
