Don’t miss this spectacular new series that will steal your heart and haunt your dreams: Welcome to Shadow Falls camp, nestled deep in the woods of a town called Fallen.…
One night Kylie Galen finds herself at the wrong party, with the wrong people, and it changes her life forever. Her mother ships her off to Shadow Falls - a camp for troubled teens, and within hours of arriving, it becomes painfully clear that her fellow campers aren’t just "troubled". Here at Shadow Falls, vampires, werewolves, shapshifters, witches and fairies train side by side - learning to harness their powers, control their magic, and live in the normal world.
Kylie’s never felt normal, but surely she doesn’t belong here with a bunch of paranormal freaks either. Or does she? They insist Kylie is one of them, and that she was brought here for a reason. As if life wasn’t complicated enough, enter Derek and Lucas. Derek’s a half-fae who’s determined to be her boyfriend, and Lucas is a smokin’ hot werewolf with whom Kylie shares a secret past. Both Derek and Lucas couldn’t be more different, but they both have a powerful hold on her heart. Even though Kylie feels deeply uncertain about everything, one thing is becoming painfully clear - Shadow Falls is exactly where she belongs.…

Yes, I think this book has a refreshing spin on the legends of "Monsters." Any teenager could relate to the chaos that occurs to the main character of the book as far as identity issues and divorce is concerned. The book's plot was filled with many twists and turns. I got sucked in pretty easily after the first couple of chapters. There were some predictable moments where I could guess what was going to be revealed before Kylie realized it, but the book was still enjoyable!
I liked that the concept was original. A world filled with "monsters" trying to learn how to survive through having to co-exist at a camp for supernaturals. I also enjoyed the romance in the book. Being married, it's fun to get a glimpse into that young love/ hormonal/ emotional chaos of new romance. The two guys swooning for her attention sounded pretty hot to trot so I am hoping this turns into a movie!
I have never listened to Katie Schorr before but her voice is pleasant. At first, I thought her voice would grate on my nerves but after a while I began to grow accustomed to it and could visualize the characters. She did a good job of bringing the characters to life and painting the setting of the story through her voice.
"Who knew being a teen was so tough?"
I have been happily married for 17 years, I have 3 children (12, 14, & 16), and 2 dogs. I am currently working on a 2nd degree. Life is chaotic and stressful, but I wouldn't change it. I am blessed and enjoying my life.
I really liked this story. First of all, it is a teen's book. One that I wouldn't mind my teenagers listening to. The main character Kylie is adorable. Her character really grows through out the series. Topics like sex, teen pregnancy and divorce are addressed. Just to let you know how much I liked it, I have listened to 3 of the books since Friday! And will download the 4th soon. The supernatural element, along with heavy subjects that teenagers have to deal with, and a glimpse at how stupid the parents can sometimes be ( lol yes, I am a parent!) makes for a really great story!
Wow, as if being a teenager dealing with the threat of her parents divorcing and having concerns about her own sanity because she has horrible nightmares and sees ghosts, now she is sent to a camp that she thinks is a punishment for a misunderstanding of events at a friends party. But the camp is not punishment, its a camp for teens who just happen to be supernaturals learning about their abilities as werewolves, witches, vampires and more and how to live in a human world and be accepted.
Kylie is certain there are no such thing as supernaturals much less that she could be one herself. But she may be wrong about that.
Its a good story, the characters are interesting and I look forward to following the mystery of Kylie discovering which boy she will choose to learning just what it is she may be.

I have not read the print yet to judge.
I lied how no matter the diffenerence in people in a crunch you could stick it out and over come all.
No I have not but I was really impressed with her
Yea how the councel holiday really put her self out there for the kids with issues.
I can not wait to hear or read part 2 now.
I loved the slightly different take C C Hunter has on all of our favorite supernatural beings. A refreshing twist to my favorite genre.
Hmmm, I don't like to give anything away in book reviews. So, we will just say that my favorite in this story would be 'soldier dude'
This is my first audio book experience, considering I enjoyed the crap out of it and I always thought it would depend on the narrator. I'd say she did a great job through out. The guys voices were a little different, but not horrible.
There were two scenes that had me close to tears, one happy and one that touched my heart.
I can't wait to continue reading/listening to this series! Hope the rest are of the same caliber as the first!
I love to read... love to listen while I walk my dog, Sally Jo.
This was a great book... very different take on vamps, witches, werewolves and the like. I thought the narrator moved things along at a perfect pace and had a good voice for the story. For those of you who like to be entertained, buy this book. I am glad I did.
I probably ranked as a book to read again someday, or maybe a book to be recommended to a friend.
At first I was a little skeptical about the book, I thought "another book with young supernatural" but to read the review I thought it was worth giving a vote of confidence, and I do not regret. The story is intriguing. You're stuck at the end
No one in particular.
I agree completly with who wrote the the book review. This book is amazing.
I would recommend this book. It wouldn't be the first I would choose, but I wouldn't advise against it.
Discovering the love story behind everything.
She interpreted simple sentence structure improperly. Pauses in the wrong places, voice changes that I felt were unnecessary and distracting. I'm not sure if she herself has a southern accent or she was attempting it for the main characters sake, but I would have much prefered a straight read. Some of my issue with how the delivery was made I can see may not be the narrators fault. Part of my annoyance was with "she said", or
"he said", after every spoken line. I may also be in the minority when it comes to different voices, ect. in the delivery. I just want the book read to me with inflection. One person altering their voice, unless they are gifted at that, is just distracting. My imagination will do the rest, just as it would if I were reading it myself. I also wondered if the narrator had pre-read the book. You know, practiced. For the flow to have been as bad as it was at times it made me think she hadn't. I'm not sure what protocol is followed by the narrators, but practicing doesn't seem like a bad idea. We are paying for these audio's after all.
