C.C HUNTER HAS DONE IT AGAIN!
Title: Whispers at Moonrise (Book 4 of the Shadow Falls Series)
Author: C.C Hunter
Genre: Young Adult – Paranormal
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.
C.C Hunter has once again delivered a fantastic installment in the Shadow Falls series, Whispers at Moonlight, this series just keeps getting better and better!
For those of you who haven’t read the previous books in this series and you love books about the supernatural, complete with all different types of supernatural species, great character detail, great plots full of action and mystery and of course great romance, then this series is for you. I promise this series will not disappoint you – so get to it!
This book is definitely my favorite installment to the series so far, I was completely absorbed in the plot, which involved Kylie’s further self-development. The reader finally discovers what species she actually belongs too and has a lot of questions answered, which naturally results in more questions left pending. And it doesn’t end there, the readers gains so much insight; into her love life drama between two boys, her family drama with her parents, school starting with intriguing new teachers and new freshman students on the prowl for future mates and her latest ghost visitor who has warned her someone very close to her is in danger and is fighting against the clock to figure out the next mystery before it is too late.
What I love about this series is the range of characters and how they are constantly evolving throughout the series. Each character is brilliantly written and very likeable in their own individual ways but I would like to make a special mention about my two favorite characters, who would have to be from the vampire corner, Burnett and Della. Both of these characters show such a hard, cold, complex, stand off-ish exterior but slowly remove their layers to show they are warm, loyal, trustworthy, pure hearted, with a firm grasp on the true value of friendship and love. I really admire the author’s ability to create such multifaceted characters that help to tell a great story.
Now, this love triangle between Kylie, Lucas and Derek – I have to say I am team Derek all the way! So far, all I have witnessed in this relationship between Kylie and Lucas is a great physical attraction which may simply be lust for each other, even though they say the love each other, how can they? I know they have a past going back to when they were kids but at the moment Kylie needs him the most to help and support her with her new self-discovery and ghost issues, he is never around. Lucas has his own issues and goals that he is trying to deal with and conquer, none of which he can be open and honest about with Kylie. The whole time he is expecting Kylie’s trust and understanding only to show his true colours through the way he treats Kylie at the end of this book. This tells me he is a huge JACKASS! No matter what his reasons are or what he is trying to achieve, no girlfriend should have to supportive of those kinds of actions!
In complete opposition to Lucas is Derek – sweet, sweet Derek, who has told Kylie directly he is in love with her, who is supportive and understanding of her new self discovery and ghost issues. He is her rock and a great friend and in my opinion he understands who Kylie is and what she will become. I only wish there was more focus on his character in this book, hopefully the next installment will have a happy ending for Derek – please, please, please; fingers crossed!!
I love the way this book ended. It was so unexpected and brilliantly written that I am now desperate to read the next and final installment to this series. I am intrigued to finally see how this story ends for Kylie and the related characters. So my copy of “Chosen at Nightfall” has now been pre-ordered and the count down is on, bring on April 23rd!!
