Welcome to Shadow Falls, nestled deep in the woods of a town called Fallen…
Kylie Galen has never felt normal. One night she 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—but within hours of arriving, it becomes clear that her fellow campers aren't "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. They insist Kylie is one of them, and that she was brought to Shadow Falls 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 brooding 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 is uncertain about everything, she starts to realize that Shadow Falls is exactly where she belongs…
Don't miss this spectacular, New York Times bestselling, young adult paranormal romance series from C. C. Hunter! Born at Midnight will steal your heart and haunt your dreams.
Sixteen-year-old Kylie Galen wants to believe it was a case of wrong place, wrong time that landed her in the Shadow Falls Camp for juvenile delinquents. She'd rather focus on big issues like her grandmother's death, her parents' divorce, and her ex-boyfriend's betrayal. Instead, she is surrounded by "freaks," who she's asked to believe are vampires, werewolves, and fairies. Kylie's ability to see ghosts doesn't make her a supernatural creature, too, does it? Hunter, who writes romance novels as Christie Craig, treads familiar territory by using a camp-cum-school for misunderstood magical youth as the setting for her first YA novel, which kicks off the Shadow Falls series. After the info-dump beginning, the story settles into an entertaining series of romantic quandaries and breathtaking revelations that propel Kylie on her quest to discover whether she is, indeed, human. The evolving, not-always-easy relationships among Kylie and her cabin mates Della and Miranda are rendered as engagingly as Kylie's angst over dangerous Lucas and appealing Derek. Just enough plot threads are tied up to make a satisfying stand-alone tale while whetting appetites for sequels to come. Ages 12 up.
