“The Shadow Falls series belongs to my favorite YA series. It has everything I wish for in a YA paranormal series. A thrilling tale that moves with a great pace, where layers of secrets are revealed in a way that we are never bored. It continues a gripping story about self-discoveries, finding a place in the world, friendship, and love. So if you didn't start this series yet, I can only encourage you to do so.” ―Bewitched Bookworms on the Shadow Falls series

A perfect mesh of mystery, thriller, and romance. Vampires, weres and fae, oh my!” ―Romantic Times

About the Author
C.C. Hunter is the author of the young adult fantasy series Shadow Falls, including the books Born at Midnight and Awake at Dawn. She grew up in Alabama, where she caught lightning bugs, ran barefoot, and regularly rescued potential princes, in the form of Alabama bullfrogs, from her brothers. Today, she's still fascinated with lightning bugs, mostly wears shoes, but has turned her focus to rescuing mammals. She now lives in Texas with her four rescued cats, one dog, and a prince of a husband, who for the record, is so not a frog. When she's not writing, she's reading, spending time with her family, or shooting things--with a camera, not a gun.
C.C. Hunter is a pseudonym. Her real name is Christie Craig and she also writes humorous romantic suspense romance novels.

First 50 Pages: I flew through this entire book in one sitting, like I have with the previous titles. I also believe that each of the books get better and better as they go, because I really loved this one! It is full of twists that I didn't see coming and it has a lot of action in it, too. That is one thing that I really love about these books, that they are unpredictable which is a rare find recently.
Characters & Plot: When I first read the first book, Born at Midnight, I was instantly drawn into the plot line and each of the characters. We are introduced to Kylie, a girl who doesn't have very good luck who is sent to a camp for teenagers who are "troubled." When Kylie arrives at Shadow Falls, she realizes that there is more than meets the eye since the camp is full of teens with supernatural abilities, with some not knowing the exact extent of their powers, including Kylie. Then in Awake at Dawn, the second book in the Shadow Falls series, Kylie knows for sure that she has some kind of special powers and she continues on the path of self-discovery. There is also the introduction of a love triangle between Kylie, Lucas and Derek, as well as other supernatural beings on the hunt for Kylie, but she has no idea why they want her.Read more ›
The one complaint I HAVE to mention that I'm noticing about Kylie however is she always seems to want the boy she doesn't have. Here she has two boys madly panting after her--Derek and Lucas, and she always seems to be dreaming the most about the one she doesn't have. When she was with Derek, it was Lucas that she wanted, and now that she has Lucas and Derek is on the sidelines as a "friend," she is fantasizing about being with Derek. So this is very annoying because at this rate, she'll lose them both. Maybe she deserves to.
Miranda and Perry are finally working it out in this one which made me happy. There's a new character named Ellie. There isn't much more to add, Lucas and Derek, Holiday, Burnett, even Red and Mario make appearances. There was a few twists with the "bad guys" and I liked that.
Here's what I didn't like, I mean really hated, I almost rated it a 3... The ending. Here it is, I had no idea this wasn't the last book. I'm thrilled that it's not I love the kids at Shadow Falls but seriously, the ending was like Deja Vu to the ending of the last book in this series. That really had me disappointed, I would've liked an original ending.
Yes Kylie got some answers, but the ending still, besides that, is an exact replica of the ending of the last book. Meeting her grandparents, questioning her identity, etc...
*Complimentary copy provided. This does NOT affect my review in any way.*
I received Taken at Dusk from St. Martin's Press/Griffin, including Born at Midnight and Awake at Dawn, book one and two in the Shadow Falls Series, since I hadn't read the series then. But I can promise you, that I devoured this series in two days (three books in two days!) and absolutely loved it.
This is a popular series among paranormal junkies out there, but when I first heard of it, I decided not to read it. Why? Because at the time, I had been reading Hex Hall by Rachel Hawkins, and the blurb sounded suspiciously like that of Hex Hall. Once all the starred reviews started pouring in though, I regretted it, so I'm glad to have a chance to read the entire series!
Taken at Dusk starts immediately where Awake at Dawn left off, Kylie about to meet her adoptive parents, the ones who just might have the clue to finding out exactly what she is. But when she gets there, her "adoptive parents" and her barely get ten minutes before they're ushered out and it looks as if the couple weren't her adoptive parents, but were, instead, imposters. Shocking! And then animals are suddenly protecting her. An eagle that suddenly catches a snake mere inches from her feet, a deer jumping in front of her just before lightning strikes the spot she would've been in if not for the deer. But why? Taken at Dusk raises more questions than it answers, leaving readers shocked and mystified.
I fell in love with our characters in book one, wanting to hug the life out of them in book two, and started crying for them in book three.Read more ›
