About book Taken At Dusk (2012)

2.5 StarsThis would be a really good series if it was about the supernatural. The Miranda/Perry and the Kylie/Derek/Lucas thing is getting a little hard to take. Especially the stuff with Lucas. You want to like him, but he is a jerk. He has double standards and he gets mad when he does not get his way. Every time Kylie gives in and overlooks his flaws, it is too reminiscent of an abusive relationship where one partner keeps going back. I think with a lot of editing this series could have actually have been a really top-notch series. *Step into Shadow Falls, a camp for teens with supernatural powers.  Here friendship thrives, love takes you by surprise, and our hearts possess the greatest magic of all.*Kylie Galen wants the truth so badly she can taste it. The truth about who her real family is, the truth about which boy she’s meant to be with—and the truth about what her emerging powers mean.  But she’s about to discover that some secrets can change your life forever…and not always for the better.Just when she and Lucas are finally getting close, she learns that his pack has forbidden them from being together.  Was it a mistake to pick him over Derek? And it’s not just romance troubling Kylie. An amnesia-stricken ghost is haunting her, delivering the frightful warning, *someone lives and someone dies. *As Kylie races to unravel the mystery and protect those she loves, she finally unlocks the truth about her supernatural identity, which is far different—and more astonishing—than she ever imagined.### ReviewPraise for the Shadow Falls series:“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“TAKEN AT DUSK starts off with action and never loses momentum. C.C. Hunter takes readers on a supernatural thrill ride, full of suspense, drama, laughter and intense emotions from page one all the way through the last page, ending in one of the biggest cliffhangers I've read.” –Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews“Ms. Hunter handles this series with such deftness, crafting a wonderful tale that speaks to the adolescent in me. I highly recommend this series filled with darkness and light, hope and danger, friendship and romance.” –Night Owl Reviews (Top Pick) “*Taken At Dusk* has even more drama and answers for Kylie.  Jam-packed with action and romance from the very beginning, Hunter’s lifelike characters and paranormal creatures populate a plot that will keep you guessing till the very end.  A perfect mesh of mystery, thriller, and romance. Vampires, weres and fae, oh my!” –*Romantic Times*“The evolving, not-always-easy relationships among Kylie and her cabin mates Della and Miranda are rendered as engagingly as Kylie's angst over dangerous Lucas and appealing Derek. Just enough plot threads are tied up to make a satisfying stand-alone tale while whetting appetites for sequels to come” –*Publishers Weekly*“*Born at Midnight* is addicting.  Kylie’s journey of self-discovery and friendship is so full of honesty, it’s impossible not to fall in love with her and Shadow Falls..and with two sexy males vying for her attention, the romance is scorching.  *Born at Midnight* has me begging for more, and I love, love, love it!” –*Verb Vixen*“There are so many books in the young adult paranormal genre these days that it’s hard to choose a good one. I was so very glad to discover *Born at Midnight*. If you like P.C. and Kristin Cast or Alyson Noel, I am sure you will enjoy *Born at Midnight*!” –*Night Owl Reviews*“This has everything a YA reader would want…I read it over a week ago and I am still thinking about it. I can't get it out of my head. I can't wait to read more. This series is going to be a hit!” –*Awesome Sauce Book Club*“Seriously loved this book! This is definitely a series you will want to watch out for. C.C. Hunter has created a world of hot paranormals that I didn't want to leave.” --*Looksie Lovitz Book Blog*“I absolutely LOVED it. Wow, it blew me away.” –Nina Bangs, author of *Eternal Prey*"Fun and compulsively readable, with a winning heroine and an intriguing cast of secondary characters” –Jenna Black, author of *Glimmerglass*### About the Author**C.C.
