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, shapeshifters, 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…

The title of this book is what first caught my eye. After reading the summary on the back. I knew I wanted to read this book. Even the cover of the book is nice to look at. Overall the first appearance of the book is intriguing enough to pull me under my blanket and prepare for the long hall. And in true good book fashion I am not able to put this book down. Who needs sleep anyway...
Every teen or child wishes they could wake up and find out that they aren't who they think they are. I believe I wanted to be a princess... The best part of this story is that Kylie not only finds out she isn't who she thought she was but she isn't who anyone thought she was. And in typical self discover crisis Kylie's life sucks right now.
Her parents are getting a divorce, she was caught at a party, she is having boy troubles and her parents ship her off to a camp for troubled teens.
This novel is the first in the series. Kylie is struggling to figure out exactly who she is. In the mean time she has TWO hot guys and two best friends to keep her busy in her free time. Did I mention Kylie can see and speak to ghost? That is just one of the many talents Kylie discovers she has. Kylie attends a camp with almost every supernatural there is and strangely enough she doesn't seem to know which group of supernaturals she belongs too.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book and look forward to the rest of the series. I definitely recommend this book for any YA book fan. Without further ado... my rating.
