Step into the world of Shadow Falls, a camp that helps teens tap into their special…talents. Once you visit, you’ll never forget it—and you’ll never, ever be the same.

From the moment Kylie Galen arrived at Shadow Falls Camp, she’s had one burning question: What am I? Surrounded by vampires, werewolves, shape-shifters, fairies and witches, Kylie longs to figure out her own supernatural identity…and what her burgeoning powers mean. And now she’ll need them more than ever, because she’s being haunted by a new spirit who insists that someone Kylie knows—and loves—will die before the end of the summer. If only she only knew who she was supposed to save. And how…

But giving Kylie the most trouble is her aching heart. Gorgeous werewolf Lucas left camp with another girl, but he’s still visiting Kylie in her dreams. And Derek, a sexy half Fae who’s always been there for her when she needed him, is pushing to get more serious—and growing impatient, especially when Lucas returns. Kylie knows she needs to decide between the boys, and it’s tearing her up inside.

Yet romance will have to wait, because something from the dark side of the supernatural world is hiding in Shadow Falls. It’s about to threaten everything she holds dear…and bring her closer to her destiny.

The second book in this series does not let you down. Kylie is still at camp and still on the search to self discovery. And of course she still has two hot guys to choose between. This book really hooks you on the surrounding characters. I love how the author is slowly dragging us deeper into the lives of each character. They each have so much personality and really bring the story alive. It is nice to see an author put so much time and thought into the back stories of each supporting character.
Great detail and a great story. Very comforting that the second book in the series carries on the love for the characters and story. Couldn't wait to sink my teeth in to the next installment of the Shadow falls series.
