Kylie Galen's life hasn't been the same since her world was turned upside-down in Born at Midnight, Shadow Falls #1, and now an epic conclusion to her journey—not to mention a tough choice between two guys!—is brewing in Chosen at Nightfall:

When Kylie Galen left Shadow Falls, she thought it was the hardest decision of her life. Heartbroken and separated from everyone she loves, she has to embrace her abilities and what it means to be a chameleon. But as Kylie's journey comes to a close, she must return to the camp that started it all... and she must finally chose between the two boys who love her. The werewolf who broke her heart when he chose his pack over her, and the half-fae who ran from their intense attraction before they ever really had a chance. For Kylie, everything will finally be revealed and nothing will ever be the same.
Addictive, emotional and dangerous, the shadow falls series is perfect for those wanting a series to drag them straight into a new world.

I do not want to write a summary of this novel, as it is the last in the series and I really do not want to risk spoiling anything!

The characters in this novel and series is what really makes the books so special and addictive. Kylie is kind, generous, loving and determined, a protagonist whom you will instantly route for. Therefore, the secondary characters of this series really add the fun and comical moments to the novels like Della and Miranda; this series would not be the same without them.

In terms of the love triangle, in the end I didn't really mind who Kylie ended up with. It was strange because Lucas and Derek became very similar to one another, like they were the same person, and in the end I could tell who she was going to pick and was not disappointed. The love triangle, I must say, was executed perfectly and one of the best I have read yet.

The plot of this final novel was fast paced and shocking, with many twists and turns that I was certainly not expecting. I was definitely gasping at moments. Hunter really did a wonderful job of bringing this series to a close and I look forward to seeing what she will do with Dellas spin off series as she was one of my favourite secondary characters. Overall, a dangerous, action packed conclusion, that brought in a few surprises that really added tension and suspense to the novel.

I cannot wait to read Dellas spin off series!

Dead Jed is Shaun of the Dead meets Diary of a Wimpy Kid. Jed's not your typical junior high geek. He is, to use the politically-correct term, cardiovascularly-challenged. And while his parents have attempted to shield him from the implications of being 'different' for as long as they could (Jed was 8 and at a friend's sister's birthday party when he blew his lips off onto the cake in front of everyone, finally prompting the “Big Talk” from his parents and an emergency SuperGlue repair by his dad), 7th grade at Pine Hollow Middle School as a target of Robbie the supreme school bully and his pack of moronic toadies is rapidly becoming unbearable.
From being stuffed in a filled trash can as “dead meat” and into a trophy case as the bully's “prize,” to literally having his hand pulled off in the boys' room (Jed's always l…

When Mara Dyer wakes up in hospital with no memory of how she got there, or any explanation as to why the bizarre accident that caused the deaths of her boyfriend and two best friends left her mysteriously unharmed, her doctors suggest that she start over in a new city, at a new school, and just hope her memories gradually come back. 

But Mara's new start is anything but comforting. She sees the faces of her dead friends everywhere and now she's started to see other peoples deaths before they happen. Is she going crazy? As if dealing with all this isn't enough, Noah Shaw, the most beautiful boy she's ever seen, can't seem to leave her alone. But does he have her best interests at heart, or another agenda altogether? Thrilling, dark, addictive and haunting, The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer was surprising and not what I originally was expecting. I have h…
