Shadow Falls Camp is back in session with the most explosive installment yet. A shocking new threat will rock Shadow Falls—changing it forever and altering Kylie's journey in ways she never imagined.

Even at a camp for supernatural teens, Kylie Galen has never been normal. Not only can she see ghosts, but she doesn't seem to belong to any one species—she exhibits traits from them all. As Kylie struggles to unlock the secrets of her identity, she begins to worry that Lucas will never be able to accept her for what she is, and what she isn't…a werewolf. With his pack standing in their way, Kylie finds herself turning more and more to Derek, the only person in her life who's willing to accept the impossible.

As if life isn't hard enough, she starts getting visits from the ghost of Holiday, her closest confidante. Trouble is, Holiday isn't dead…not yet anyway. Now Kylie must race to save one of her own from an unseen danger before it's too late—all while trying to stop her relationship with Lucas from slipping away forever. In a world of constant confusion, there's only one thing Kylie knows for sure. Change is inevitable and all things must come to an end…maybe even her time at Shadow Falls.

The breathtaking fourth installment of the New York Times bestselling Shadow Falls series from author C. C. Hunter...Whispers at Moonrise.
This series just gets better and better. My mind has blown! I am just speechless. And this cover... just beautiful! I love the colours!

I am not going to give a summary for this one as I do not want to risk spoiling anything!

Kylie's strength in these novels just keeps growing as she becomes more confident in herself, yet not over-confident. I think she has become much more relaxed and as a person we are constantly uncovering more about her as she finds out, making her character feel more realistic alongside helping you as the reader connect with her. And the secondary characters, I love how we are learning more about Perry, alongside seeing Burnett and Della express their emotions more. The love triangle in the fourth novel. Totally Team Derek now. I mean Lucas, really, he is so controlling and treats Kylie like a child who does not understand anything, and then that scene... WHAT!?

I believe one of the most engaging things about this series is the journey you travel with Kylie trying to uncover what she is. I loved her determination and constant belief in the fact that her father told her she was a Chameleon, and Kylie trying to solve what this mysterious supernatural breed is was fascinating and addictive.

The plot of these novels just gets more engaging and addictive as it goes on. I loved the action and mystery of this novel, I felt gripped from the very beginning and could not put it down. Alongside this, the emotions in this novel, there were definitely some emotional scenes. I think the plot of this novel really stood out from the previous books, it was dark and mysterious, alongside fast-paced and had you on the edge of your seat at times. It was dark and creepy, alongside sad and tense. But that ending. Oh. My. Gosh. I just, I have no words, no words, except that I need the final novel.

Lets just say, this series is addictive. Now, I am off to devour Chosen at Nightfall.

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…
