I just read the Shadow Falls series and I LOVED it! It consists of 5 books: Born at Midnight, Awake at Dawn, Taken at Dusk, Whispers at Moonrise, and Chosen at Nigthfall. I may be growing up but I still love young adult fiction. This series reminds me of what would happen if you put Harry Potter and Twilight into a blender and mixed it up. It has super naturals, magic, and a love story. The series is about a girl who learns that she may be more than just your average human. It all begins when she starts seeing a stranger that no one else can see. This forces her mother to put her into therapy which somehow leads her to attending the summer camp, Shadow Falls, for troubled teens. However, upon discovering she may not be human, she is left not knowing what she is or where she belongs.
The journey of self-discovery that, Kylie Galen, goes through is incredibly honest and captivating. There is a love triangle with a charming fae and buff werewolf, but it does not consume the whole story line. The young lady finds herself in some scary confrontations with evil (evil vampires, evil spirits, even evil animals) where she must find the courage to fight for her life and the lives of others.
The tone of this series is very relatable to anyone who reads it. It makes you think of how important friendship is. I must admit that the ending was a little too well wrapped up for me, but it does not change the fact that I will read the series again. Among the super naturals that belong to this series are werewolves, faes, witches, shape shifters, and some other super natural that is truly unique.
When reading this series be prepared to read all 5 books at once. I know I could not wait to see where the next book would take Ms. Galen, in her adventure of becoming a force to be reckoned with.
Overall, I think it is a must read series if you like young adult fiction. What did y’all think of the series? What books do you recommend?
