Book Review: Taken At Dusk by C.C. Hunter

Taken At Dusk (Shadow Falls #3)
By C.C. Hunter
Release Date: April 10, 2012
Summary: 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.

Review: It's about time this book came out! I fell in love with the first two books of this series months ago, and words can't even explain how excited and happy I am that I finally got to figure out what happened next in the books!

I absolutely love Shadow Falls and all of the people there. Holiday and Burnett are bickering in their flirty way as usual and Kylie is still torn between Lucas and Derek. Even though she thinks she's figured out who she wants, there's always something that makes her question who she really wants to be with (I'm team Derek all the way!). 

Della and Miranda are awesome as usual and I love their side stories! I really care about if they're happy too, so I love being able to see what's going on in their own love lives. New characters are introduced (like Derek's ex-girlfriend) and we figure out more about Kylie's freaky ghost that's been stalking her. Oh, and Kyle finally gets closer to figuring out just exactly what she is. 

In the third book of this awesome paranormal series, there's tons of action, suspense, and mystery that it always keeps you on your toes. Kylie finds even more powers and deals with even more problems, oh and everywhere she goes it seems like someone is killing her. So I'd say there was never a dull moment. Never!

This book, of course, leaves off on another cliff-hanger and the next book doesn't come out until October! Grrrrrrr I don't know if I can wait that long! Everything about this book is awesome. This is the kind of series that makes you want to lock yourself in your room and not come out until you're finished. Seriously, I hated having to put it down! Make sure you check out this series if you haven't already!
