About the Author
C.C. Hunter is the author of the young adult fantasy series Shadow Falls, including Born at Midnight. 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.
Top Customer Reviews
No one is perfect and nothing is absolutely perfect in this book. Everyone, all throughout is just trying to figure things out as they go along. There are family problems, relationship problem and etc... Not everyone gets along, feelings are confused and misunderstanding happen.
Kylie is typical book protagonist. She avoids things a lot and she isn't sure about what to do in certain situations, but she is an honest, good, and kind person who loves the people around her.
I don't know what is going to happen with the love triangle but I know who I am voting for. I really like both Derek and Lucas but I have to say that I am hoping it's going to be her and Lucas. I guess I am just going to have to wait until the next book "Taken At Dusk" to find out.
Awake at Dawn continues our story back at camp where we left off. Kylie is being haunted by a bloody woman who tells her that she needs to help a friend or her friend will die but gives no more information than that and her romantic relationships continue to confuse her. Kylie also starts getting powers and wonders what type of creature she will be.
Awake at Dawn was not as good as the first book in the series but did answer questions that were left hanging at the end of the last book and the tone continued to be the same. I did feel that the story moved slowly however and I didn't find myself rushing to find out what would happen next. I would recommend this book for readers who enjoyed the first book but if readers were unsure about the first book I'd skip it.
Appropriateness: There are some heavy make out sessions and some discussions of sex between the characters. I would recommend this book to teens 14+ that enjoy paranormal romance.
As if camp and dealing with being a supernatural isn't enough to keep her busy. Kylie has two potential love interests. She can’t seem to forget Lucas the werewolf who she has a past with that ran away from camp in the first one and Derek the half fae who can sense her attraction. Throw in a ghost who wants her help but isn’t giving Kylie enough information. Soon bodies are turning up in town accidents to the humans but victims of a rogue vampires. Parent’s day is just around the corner and Lucas has returned to camp. It’s enough to keep her busy. Will Kylie figure out what she really is? Who the ghost is trying to save? Will she choose Derek or Lucas?
I really like Kylie as a character even if she is caught in a love triangle which I can’t stand. Typically love triangles are game over from the start but I'm too enchanted by Kylie’s story. I think the characters are great her friends Miranda and Della are each unique with their own stories hidden within Kylies. I’m torn on which guy I like for Kylie but it’s hard not to cheer for the werewolf Lucas. I’m curious to see how this will play out.
