Review: Taken at Dusk by C.C. Hunter

Taken at Dusk (Shadow Falls, #3)
Taken at dusk by C.C. Hunter
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.

Blkosiner's Book Blog review
     This one sucked me in and didn't let go just like the others in the series. Kylie continues to surprise me with her bravery and determined mindedness to find out who and what she is. Every time something new arises, I am just as surprised and intrigued as she is.
     The plot doesn't get old either, there are new twists, and the characters always have something going on that keeps me guessing, swooning, and wanting to read more.
    Okay, so about the romance, especially at the beginning... Kylie is being blind and unfair about Derek. This observation is from the last of the second book and the first few pages of tad so it may be unfair of me add week, but i think that Derek is right and out odd not that it is too hard to be with her but that she truly hadn't decided and that really want fair to him for her heart too be divided brethren him and Lucas. But from the beginning it seems that Lucas will get house chance to shine and win her heart.
    Bottom line: Great addition to a superb series.

My question to you, my lovely readers:


  1. I love this series! New interesting takes on supernaturals. I really enjoyed this one. I don't understand Kylie and her choices in romance though. Jaclyn @ JC's Book Haven

  2. Have never read a single CC Hunter book -- will put this series on my list!

  3. A love triangle, how original *eye roll* Why must YA always do that?

  4. I didn't actually read your review since I haven't read books 1 and 2 (which I've had for months!) I have been meaning to start this series for the LONGEST time. *sigh*

    1. I totally understand. i end up skimming a lot of reviews because I still need to read.

  5. I haven't read any of these, but I'm glad it was a lovely addition. It's nice to have sequels in a series that are just as intriguing as the first.

  6. I also love this series a lot :) I got book 4 when it was released but still haven't had a chance to devour it. I'm hoping to get to it very soon.

  7. I haven't read this series but I have always loved the covers. I'll have to add them to my list. Thanks for sharing! :)

  17. I love the cover, but I'm not into romance that much. A little is okay but if half the book is about the love triangle... I'll pass.
