Awake at Dawn (Shadow Falls Series #2) By: C.C.Hunter
From the moment Kylie Galen arrived at Shadow Falls Camp, she’s had one burning question: What am I? Surrounded by vampires, werewolves, shape-shifters, fae, and witches, Kylie longs to figure out her own supernatural identity, and what her burgeoning powers mean. And now she’ll need them more than ever because she’s being haunted by a new spirit who insists that someone Kylie knows – and loves – will die before the end of the summer. If only she knew who she was supposed to save. And how. But giving Kylie the most trouble is her aching heart. Gorgeous werewolf Lucas left camp with another girl, but he’s still visiting her in her dreams. And Derek, a sexy half Fae who’s always been there for her when she needed him, is pushing to get more serious – and growing impatient, especially when Lucas returns. Kylie knows she needs to decide between the boys, and it’s tearing her up inside. Yet romance will have to wait because something from the dark side of the supernatural world is hiding in Shadow Falls. It’s about to threaten everything Kylie holds dear and bring her closer to her destiny.
So let’s talk dirty. . . about the drama that is, not about the two hotties who still seem to be fighting over Kylie we will get to that later. Right now I want to go over the facts this book makes me cringe about. Fact number one I cannot stand the lack of action in this book like for the love of god I want something to happen other than Kylie going back and forth between two guys she likes. Number 2 is the fact that Kylie can talk to the ghost and everything but apparently ghost cannot communicate with her very well so all we get is some weirdo covered in blood telling her to fix things and then vanishes that is the most useless thing in the entire would like really come on. So far the only stimulating thing that has happened is Perry going wild and shifter fighting it out with Kevin now that was great! We also get occasional I feel someone following my presence but it results in a let down of nothing happening. I live in danger and excitement in these kinda of books but all I’m getting so far is boy drama which is in almost every book you will ever read.
Character-wise Holiday has grown on me I feel like she is someone I can love she has been broken my a men once before and now she might be trying to love again but her kids in her camp are her life and she does everything to protect them no matter what and her back and forth with Brunette is just the best. I love the pent-up emotions that they share with each other but refuse to act upon which is made even better by Della always telling them they should ” Bump Uglies”. Brunette is also starting to grow on me because his character has become so much more than a guy in a black suit is a douche bag, he has become a teacher and caretaker of the kids as well as watching out for Holiday.
My action came! FINALLY!! WE HAVE BROKEN THE ICE AND SHIT HAS HIT THE FAN! Although it was a very tiny fan we still got what we wanted. We have discovered the people who have been following Kylie and why they kidnapped her. We have been given not one but two pissed off she-wolf, a half skunk cat, along with heartbreak and new romance. What more could you ask for how about death and a lot of heartache, wrap that up in a box and put it under my Christmas tree because finally I have been given what I wanted all along but I will say it was given to me at the less than 100 pages mark and I now am still left with a cliffhanger until my next book in the series arrives. You heard right babes I am still going on with this series, I know you are probably asking why after I just like whinnied about it not giving me anything until the last 100 pages. It is because I was still interested in the book I before invested in the story and its characters even without the action. I need to know what happens with Kylie, Derek, Lucas, Della, Miranda, and even Brunette. I have grown attached to them. That is what makes this such a good series so far. Not just the plot but the characters.
The characters are not the icing on the cake in this book the characters are the cake and the plot is the icing. All the people in this book has grown and shown us a whole other side of them since the day we first arrived at the Falls. They aren’t characters anymore they are people that I feel like I have known my whole life and I’m falling in love with them all. That to me makes a book great.
Read this book if you read the first one and are still curious about how things pan out. Read this book and the first one if you are looking for a new series of new characters to fall in love with and a story to keep you carving for more. This book may not be full of fighting and action but it is full of drama, heart, and spirit, that is all I can ever ask for in a book.
