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.

My Thoughts
This is the second book in the series and I jumped right into it after loving the first. Kylie is still trying to figure out what she is and of course seeing ghosts every other day is normal for her.
The romance is still around and Kylie is currently dating Derek, but he’s pushing for more than she wants for the moment and Lucas is on her thoughts and dreams, even after leaving. I’m not a big Lucas fan, but Derek is also not my favorite person because I can never know if he’s toying with Kylie’s feelings. So still don’t know with one is best.
The ghost this time is a women and she has no memory of her life or name, no nothing, so Kylie’s job is very difficult on this book, but we discovered some important things about her powers and her dad comes to visit after summoned, because he’s not allowed to stay for long anymore.
I love this teenage investigation side this book provided, we discover some clues about Kylie’s powers along the way and also discover how the ghosts are important and usually connected with her life. I’m loving how the author managed to introduce a world of paranormal teenagers living together and actually getting along while improving their powers.
This series was a surprise for me and was great to find and be able to read the first three books in line.
