I am in so in love with all these covers They re so beautiful I cannot wait to get my hands on this book This series always seems to somehow entrap me in its pages I read Taken At Dusk in a matter of hours and I loved every moment of it We are back at Shadow Falls and Kylie is still trying to process everything that has happened to her with the vampires Things are never quiet for Kylie though, soon a women who cannot seem to remember who she is, is stalking Kylie and bringing a grave warning And with that warning eerie things are beginning to happen With the boy situation how do you chose over two amazing, and sexy, guys who love you Well, Kylie decides to give Lucas a chance but, his pack may stand in their way Other than that chaos, Kylie is desperate to figure out who she is and she just may be getting closer But when some truths are revealed will Kylie be ready to hear the answer Taken At Dusk is full of thrills and some twists that I honestly didn t see coming I simply cannot get enough of Kylie s reality I love how C.C Hunter made her supernaturals and each lore that goes along with them For some reason, a lot of characters really stood out for me in this installment I found myself adoring Della and her wittiness And, Perry oh my gosh that boy can make you laugh Even the new character, Ellie I wanted to hate her and at first I did But, she grows on you so quickly, and I ended loving the role she played.And finally the boys I ve been constantly on the fence even though I leaned toward Lucas , and I have to say I think I m still sitting on that fence I don t know how C.C does it But, there are things about both boys that you fall in love with and things about both boys that you want to kick them for I must say, I was extremely happy with what happened with Kylie and Lucas in this one I found myself enjoying their story line But, Derek is still there and the things he does just make you want to root for him too I am so excited to see what C.C decides to do with these two fine fellas, because I love them both.I always get so pulled into these stories that I feel completely sad when they re over These books make you laugh, they make your stomach drop, overall they have an ease of trapping you in the story from beginning to end I just want to know what happens next I want to know what Kylie completely is I want to laugh with Della, Miranda, and Perry I want sexy times with Derek and Lucas All I know is that C.C Hunter definitely did not disappoint with this one And I cannot wait for Whispers At Moonrise I m finished And it was amazing Gods, I want to know who the ghost was at the end of the book And I totally called the ghost being Daniel s mom when you saw her first being pregnant And the Brightens , I d figured they were her real grandparents, and I d been close The woman had been her Great Aunt What she really was, I really wasn t expecting that but I loved it all the same May 11 2016I forgot how truly funny this series is Yes, it s not the best series ever but it s just so much fun July 20 2013Loved this book but it took me awhile to read it Overall I enjoyed it I m so tired of hearing Kylie complain about Derek ending their relationship They didn t have any relationship.When Derek tried to get close to her she always pushed him away telling him that she didn t want the other campers to know how she feels when he s close, that she was ashamed of her feelings She repeated that same sentence over in over in the second book and now it s Derek fault because he couldn t stand watching her always thinking about Lucas or because he didn t stood by her side so she could keep hurting him and pushing him away Now, when she s making out with Lucas, she s not ashamed any Or when he tells everyboby he s her boyfriend without even asking her first She s such a hypocrite.And then she gets all crazy about Derek sleeping with Ellie and thinking he betrayed her, while Lucas slept with Fredericka when they were away She forgives Lucas for sleeping with Fredericka immediately, but she keeps acting like a bitch with Derek for about 300 pages HYPOCRITE. Bisher mein Lieblingsband der Reihe Life s hard Love s harder I was so excited when I finally was able to read this book early, and as always, CC Hunter never fails to amaze me with her story telling, I just loved this series And I liked the new characters and mystery she added that has kept me interested So the story deals with Kylie, who is trying to figure out what she really is and trying to fit where she really belong in this new world she found Kylie seemed to grow through out the story which is really really good But her feelings for these two hot guys charming fae Derek and badass werewolf Lucas are still floating Well if you ask me, dunno who to pick I m crazy over Lucas but I m also fond of Derek He grew on me from the second book so its kind of difficult to choose for Kylie right now We will see how it goes, lets hope that CC would really pull this one up neatly I also loved the side characters around Kylie, CC really did a great job creating a story that doesnt only revolves with our protagonist self discovery but also extended to her supporting characters Oh, and I really really think Della the vampire is a kickass I loved her The plot twists were intriguing, there were a right amount of mystery, tension, laugh out loud moments, romance and emotional scenes Overall, I really really liked this book, this is the kind of book series that every teenagers should read, Kylie is really a great protagonist, although flawed, but great There are questions that needs an answers so cant wait for the fourth installment Lines I loved Thing is, those two sort of go hand in hand Not that you ll ever really forget, but you accept that it happened and move on You accept that all people make mistakes No one is perfect And what if you can t Kylie watched a bee buzz past her What if I can t ever really forgive him Then you let go, she said There are no guarantees, Kylie countered Not with love or with life But we can t go through life never taking a risk And that s what we are all agreeing to do Put our hearts out there Take a chance with a boy We might end up hurt, but we might not. 5 Stars Yes we finally find out what Kylie actually is view spoiler hide spoiler CAUTION Long Review, Spoilers Taken At Dusk is book 3 of the Shadow Falls series, a series that is named after the summer camp turned school for supernatural adolescents At least I thought Shadow Falls was supposed to be a school beginning in book 2 However, it turned out at 83% in book 3 Shadow Falls was getting the camp ready to become a full blown school What All this time Kylie was going to a camp, not a school Fine Then where were the camp activities in book 3 that supposed to have the kids learning and respecting supernatural cultures and be all kumbaya and crap Because one scene of a group activity serving another episode of When Kylie Gets Attacked and one scene of a camp festival serving another episode of Everybody, Especially Those Two Boys, Loves Kylie didn t count.In short, TAD failed to maintain its setting.Kylie shouldn t be worrying about her mother discovering her secret life in the supernatural world She should be worrying about her mother discovering she have been sending Kylie to play hooky.Kylie the BumSo what is Kylie doing at Shadow Falls if she s not learning anything and evil dudes keep trying oh heavens are they trying to kill her there It was the question that persisted in my mind as I read over 107,000 words of the novel I hazard Kylie going to Shadow Falls was so she could discover her supernatural identity because she sure as white on rice wasn t human.Shadow Falls was the only safe place Kylie knew where the supernatural races gathered I guess Kylie didn t give a hoot whether Shadows Fall was a camp or school as long she got her answer Because knowing what magical creature you are is somehow important than getting your education and preparing for your future so you can have money for food, shelter, and clothes Alrighty then At least she has a goal.Kylie the Wanna be SinnerIn TAD, Kylie was presented with the theory that she may be a protector I thought perhaps it was our answer Except one teeny tiny eensy problem What the frell is a protector Kylie s gal pals said it s someone who is super, super rare, with strength greater than a vampire s They can be anything, but they re known to be good and pure Sort of the Mother Teresa of supernaturals, usuallyonly one protector born every hundred or two hundred years And that s all we ever learn because Kylie was repeatedly sidetracked by boy troubles to pursue the matter facepalm The ditz couldn t keep sight of her goal.It gets worse The ditz took the Mother Teresa reference literal because she thought being a protector meant she to had be a nun and she didn t want to be a nun or any other sort of a saint In her own words, she said she wanted to sin, i.e to drink, to tell dirty jokes, to do things with boys chapter 22 Sweet Jesus Honey Dews Putting aside Kylie s purity shit, if Kylie bothered to learn about protectors, then she might have learned earlier on as opposed to near the end of the book that protectors weren t supernatural saints Protectors protect people, they don t go and become nuns This was one the many examples of Kylie being a dumbass.Kylie the DumbassAnother example was Kylie s insistence on helping an amnesiac ghost after Holiday told her the ghost may be a hell bound spirit in chapter 21.Why didn t Holiday warn Kylie about this in book 1 when Kylie first confessed she saw dead people instead chapter frigging 21 of book frigging 3 What kind of a camp counselor is she Isn t Shadow Falls supposed to be a place of education, not keeping people ignorant To be fair, Holiday was redeemed after she quickly conceded the matter to Kylie Kylie, OTOH, did nothing to redeem herself I believe Kylie was equally at fault for failing to learn about hell bound spirit as Holiday was at fault for failing to teaching Kylie Kylie should ve taken the time out to learn about her ghost whispering power instead relying on Holiday to tell her everything every time Kylie encounter something ghosty For a girl who whined at people for not helping her, she hardly did anything to help herself.Moreover, I couldn t believe Kylie used the stupid excuse that her heart told her it s the right thing to do by helping the ghosts The ditz can t even decide between two boys, so her heart isn t the right body part to listen Maybe if she d use her brain, she would know.Kylie the HypocriteIf she d use her brain, she would realize she had no business asking Ellie if Ellie had sex with Derek Kylie wasn t with Derek, she was with Lucas Whatever Derek and Ellie did was their own business Derek and Kylie sharing a past didn t afford Kylie the privilege to intrude.I was astounded to read Kylie admitting she was a virgin to a stranger to Ellie didn t sit well with her chapter 25 but confronting a stranger about their sexual activity was R U FUCKING KIDDING ME Kylie was completely blinded to her hypocrisy I really, really, really wanted Ellie to bitchslap Kylie.Kylie the Useless HeroineBasically, for the entire novel, Kylie was useless She wasn t assertive in her goal to discover her supernatural identity She wasn t even assertive in helping the amnesiac ghost until the ghost resorted to giving Kylie visions, visions that forced Kylie to walk in the ghost s shoes in the ghost s dying moments That s why I called BS on Kylie s excuse that she just wanted to do the right things and be altruistic Bitch, please It was like Kylie wanted the ghost off of her back.Pretty much every time I thought Kylie was about to become productive in her self discovery quest, she got sidetracked with her boy troubles.The Love Triangle, aka Kylie the Fickle GirlfriendThe series didn t just drag out the mystery of Kylie s supernatural identity, it also dragged out Kylie s love triangle I truly thought things with Derek were over in book 2 Foolish me Derek came back in TAD and the status quo of the love triangle reaffirmed itself.Things started to look up when Kylie attempted to get over Derek and hooked up with Lucas For while, I liked Lucas until I realize how Kylie tells everything to Lucas, but Lucas hardly tells anything to Kylie.I did not like how Lucas kept silent that members of his race disapproved of his relationship with her I didn t like how Kylie have to find out about it from Fredericka, the bitch werewolf crushing on Lucas, and Lucas s grandmother And if what Ellie screamed at Lucas in chapter 23 was true, then Kylie should breakup with Lucas before she learn the hard way that Lucas will choose his pack over her.Yet the ditz didn t even bat a thought at Ellie s outburst She immediately accepted Derek s apology in the next scene To be fair, Lucas flattered her after his apology and it couldn t be helped that Kylie was a ditz and befuddled by the seduction of corny lines.Finally, near the end of TAD, Derek confessed his love for Kylie and the poor ditz was befuddled some What a girl to do with two unsuitable boys Things I Didn t Like Overall, I didn t like Kylie the ditz I didn t like the two boys mooning over the ditz I didn t like the ditz s self involved gal pals Della and Miranda and their love triangles Della with Lee and Steve, Miranda with Perry and Todd This series is shitting love triangles The one character I did like TAD killed view spoiler It was Ellie Poor vamp never got a chance hide spoiler This review features spoilers I really hate this series I d hoped that it would get better, but it hasn t The writing is awful at best and the plot line is either her gushing about a guy, her moaning about her life, or her not being able to make her mind up Sometimes all at the same time No but really this book series is abysmal She just started saying about how her mum should forgive her dad for cheating on her Quite simply, fuck off The fact that she couldn t forgive the guy she flirted with a bit for having sex with his ex girlfriend when he saw her again, despite the fact that he was not dating Kylie at the time, or indeed ever had dated her, is just fucking ridiculous THEY NEVER DATED.THEY JUST HOOKED UP A BIT.THEN SHE IGNORED HIM AND BLANKED HIM FOR NO REASON.THEN HE LEFT.THEN HE HAD SEX WITH HIS EX GIRLFRIEND.NOW SHE WON T TALK TO HIM AND IS ANGRY.what And yet she thinks that her step dad, who carried out an affair with a very young intern behind her mothers back, should be forgiven No I m sorry Kylie, you don t need to come down from that high horse, you need to be DRAGGED And not to mention her old best friend was DYING OF CANCER and even though she thinks she s cured her, she couldn t be assed to even check Really Class A bitch act you ve got going on here And I genuinely cannot even talk about the boy situation here, she is utterly ridiculous If a girl acted like this in real life both guys would dump her ass and move on And if a guy did this to her she would be heartbroken and angsty as fuck Stop with the damned double standards Really to summarise, I gave the first book a chance It was bad, but had potential I figured it was a debut novel and the sloppiness lack of talent would be things improved by experience and finding a decent editor Instead, the writing went downhill Oh The second book was awful in the extreme, with random plot lines springing into action put of nowhere and disappearing again The other characters have NO backstory what do ever, and the lack of physical descriptions is just disgusting The characters, with the SOLE exception of the main one, and her two love interests , feel like 2D cardboard cutouts Even the love interests, Derek and Lucas have not been given much detail Derek doesn t have a last name or a general physical description what the fuck is his hair colour and Lucas doesn t have an personality besides dominant and overbearing Literally, she doesn t know anything about either of them really Expect that their hugs are wonderful and they are like soooo buff And on the subject of hair colour still, the author regularly reminds us of Miranda s coloured hair, but the thing isshe never mentions what fucking colours are in her hair Or whether it s all over coloured or just highlighted It s confusing and whilst the story is not all about the characters looks, of course, being able to actually build a mental picture of the main characters is rather a prerequisite So overall, this is a real failure in the publishing world.
