Step into Shadow Falls, a camp for teens with supernatural powers. Here friendship thrives, love takes you by surprise, and our hearts possess the greatest magic of all.
Kylie Galen wants the truth so badly she can taste it. The truth about who her real family is, the truth about which boy she’s meant to be with—and the truth about what her emerging powers mean. But she’s about to discover that some secrets can change your life forever…and not always for the better.
Just when she and Lucas are finally getting close, she learns that his pack has forbidden them from being together. Was it a mistake to pick him over Derek? And it’s not just romance troubling Kylie. An amnesia-stricken ghost is haunting her, delivering the frightful warning, someone lives and someone dies. As Kylie races to unravel the mystery and protect those she loves, she finally unlocks the truth about her supernatural identity, which is far different—and more astonishing—than she ever imagined.
My Rating of this Book – 5 out of 5 Stars
Okay, so I have really fallen in love with this series! I absolutely love the mystery, the humor, and the typical (and not so typical) supernatural-teen issues. Each novel is one step closer to the truth about Kylie’s family origin, but also each holds an entertaining mystery to solve. I had mentioned before that Awake at Dawn (Shadow Falls #2) was more drama than mystery (which I still believe), but Taken At Dusk really made up for what the second novel lacked. The twists and turns in its pages never disappointed.
Also, I have to say I really love both Derek and Lucas. They are both such great characters. However, after reading Taken at Dusk, I think I finally fell into the ‘Team Lucas’ category. Ugh, I always hate putting myself into a bucket, but in this case I just can’t help it. As great as Derek is, Lucas captured my heart in this novel.
So if I didn’t say ‘love’ enough times already in this review, I’m going to say it again: I’m totally in love with this book! I can’t wait for the next one.
