Book Review: Taken at Dusk by C. C. Hunter (Shadow Falls #3)



Summary (from Goodreads)

Title: Taken at Dusk

Author: C. C. Hunter

Publication Date: April 10, 2012

Publisher: St. Martin's Griffin







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.
 


My Thoughts:


Hi everyone and welcome back to Katie’s Corner! I’m moving on with Shadow Fall Series and today I have the 3rd book for you. If you have never heard of this series then my advice: check it out right now, you can find my reviews for book 1 and book 2 just by clicking on them. If you are a fan or not so much, I appreciate if you keep reading and afterwards if you share your thoughts with me. Always love finding a person who loves the same series!

Now, let’s get back to the story. We have left Kylie wondering what kind of supernatural she is, as well as with a big boy problem at hand. Oh, add to the chaos that she is being hunted down by a weird supernatural, and you get her life at the beginning of the book. Does any of this improve? Let’s just say not really. She does find out what she is, but still doesn’t understand what it means, not spilling a secret here! She does choose the guy, and thank you for picking my choice – Lucas, though the guy acts most of the time like a total jerk, with his whole pack business and wanting Kylie to become the werewolf too much. Even though I like him, he still pissed me off in this book, though it was not as much when I first read it, as now I at least know what the problem he was dealing with. Getting to the juicy part! The villain is still on the run, wanting now Kylie dead more than ever, plus now FRU also wants Kylie to run some tests on her! What’s she going to do? That’s in the next book and for you to know. Though we get to see some good guys die as well as some bad guys coming to the “good” side.

We meet some family members, and Kylie’s ghosts are as confusing as ever, but she’s finally getting a grip with her powers. Or better be said, she still in process and whatever her brain pattern shows right now doesn’t really help to solve the mystery. We get to see at least one relationship progress normally that’s Miranda and Perry. Those two finally get together. But before that happens, there are tons of awkward but also very fun moments. Especially someone turning into a kangaroo. I doubt you’ll be able to hold laughter when you know who was turned.

Finally there’s some development between Burnett and Holiday, I’m so rooting for those two! I hope you will grab your copy now, if you haven’t read it yet. You’ll love Shadow Falls camp, soon to be a boarding school. Enjoy it to its fullest and don’t forget to share your thoughts below! Stay tuned for more reviews as well as promos. Don’t miss your next favourite book or manga! Happy reading!

XOXO
