About the book:
Now that she’s settled in at Shadow Falls Camp, Kylie Galen’s determined to discover the extent of her supernatural abilities. But with a ghost insisting someone Kylie loves is about die, a rogue vampire on a murdering rampage, and her sixth sense telling her someone is watching her, Kylie’s quest for answers is quickly put on hold.
To make matters worse, just when she’s about to give her heart to Derek, a half-fairy, he starts pulling away. When Lucas, a werewolf with whom Kylie shares a secret past, returns, Kylie’s feels more conflicted than ever. Her weekend with her mom should have been the just the break Kylie needs, but it turns out to be her breaking point. Someone from the dark side of the supernatural world has plans for Kylie--and it'll take all her resources to get back to Shadow Falls alive...
Awake at Dawn is book two of the Shadow Falls Series. This is a exhilarating series about a young girl’s journey to discover just who and WHAT she really is. Book one introduced readers to a plethora of various character and supernatural talents. With her two best friends one a witch and one a vampire; Kylie is beginning to find a home at Shadow Falls. It is also to her benefit to have a very hot Fairy beating down the door. Even though a very hot Werewolf seems to occupy a lot of her thoughts. The story continues to become more twisted as Kylie discovers more talents that seem to point her in several different directions. As if her life wasn’t complicated enough strange things are happening around Kylie, and it seems see has captured more than a Fairy and Werewolf’s eye. Although, their purpose seems to be a lot more sinister.
The Shadow Falls books had me captured from the start. It is an exciting journey to follow, and I love the characters for all of the quirky and steamy charm. For a young girl like Kylie is wonderful to see her spreading some roots, and find a place that she feels at home. Although, even among misfits she seems to still have a borderline misfit quality. As a truly unknown species readers will never know what to expect. Awake at Dawn as broaden the horizons, and shed little light on what to expect next. With the plot thickening I can’t wait to see what is in store for this character.
