The characters and story were amazing and a joy to listen to. The reader did an excellent job of portraying the story twists as they happened.
The characters and the plot were all amazing, but I have to say that the characters were my favourite.
I couldn't choose a favourite scene if I tried, I would honestly keep changing my mind all of the time.
Primarily it made me laugh as have all of the books in this series, but it grips you from start to finish and always leaves ME wanting more.
I can't rate this entire series highly enough...BUY THEM ALL!!!
"Best series since Twilight and Harry Potter!"
Romance, Suspense and humor.
Kylie, Della and Miranda make a great combination!
Very emotional book. Made me laugh and cry.
Great series, definitely recommend!
"Fun book, but narrator needs water!"
This series consistently entertains. The latest entry is no exception. I liked learning more about the chameleon supernaturals,
I've got a soft spot for wolf boy, Lucas
Take a sip of water!! Seriously, sometimes iI was cringing. The sound of her swallowing and trying to gather saliva is just gross, and it happens so often, my heating gets extra sensitive to it. If she did it, say, once or twice, I might not even notice. But it just. Gets. Gross. She had this happen on one or two other books in the series (can't remember which), though this may be the worst case. She was fine on the last book.
I like the love triangle; I'm a sucker for that stuff.
A big pet peeve of mine in this series is how amazingly often the author describes Kylie's feelings as a sensation happening in her chest or, more often, her heart. Just about everything "pulled on her heart strings" or "swelled up in her chest" or "squeezed her heart," and, oh yeah, her heart whispers to her all the time. It's a really busy heart. I'm amazed the editor or copy editor never pointed this out, the constant repetition of pretty much the exact same metaphor. Though maybe they did, and the author didn't want to listen...
This whole series was great.
I am team Lucas
I have listened to her before and I think she did a great job.
I didn't want to stop listening to it.
"Love the book, but the narrator is sometimes cringe worthy.."
I love young adult books and this series was amazing. One problem. I felt like my ears were bleeding from LISTENING TO THE NARRATOR SWALLOW CONSTANTLY. It LITERALLY made my ears hurt and I contemplated buying the actual book instead of listening. It was disgusting and she does it throughout the ENTIRE book.
"Felt a little forced"
I feel like this last book felt a little forced and drawn out. I had to put it down for a few month and then come back to it.
Love this series! Will listen again many times! Loved to see a future follow up novel of them all grown up!
Having someone else read the book so I could get a better chance to visually imagine the plot and get to know the characters on a deeper level. The narrator gave the characters personality that I might have overlooked if I read the book on my own.
The book is the finale to the Shadow Falls series. I was so sad to be finishing it because I had grown to love the characters and be wrapped up in their lives. What I love about this series is that the setting was here in Texas where I live. It allowed me to feel magical....like there was a possibility that this had all taken place around Houston and there were such things as vampires, werewolves, witches, shapeshifters, faeries, and chameleons! The FRU was real as well as the camp! The author did a great job making the reader feel like it could be all real. I did get frustrated with the main character, Kylie Galen. She loved to torture herself by letting her feelings go back and forth between Deric, the fae, and Lucas, the werewolf. Luckily, that finally is resolved in this book and I like who she chose. I think he was the best one for her. A few surprises pop up throughout the book...we find out about Kylie's mom's b/f (John), we learn more about the chameleons, we learn the crazy warrior ghost's identity, we get to meet both sets of Kylie's g-parents (on her dad's side), and as usual...crazy stuff happens! It is a great series! Love it!
"WHY DOES IT HAVE TO BE OVER!"
You dont even have to ask YES YES and YES again. This story had me cancelling activities to keep listening. i have never found a better YA series.
Kylie, She is an amazing girl and really can help anyone learn to over come personal obstacles. It is such a fun life to feel involved with.
There are too many! but I adore when she starts learning how to use her many many gifts.
All this book had me laughing holding my sides! crying and thinking about it long after I finished the book.
ABSOLUTELY WORTH A CREDIT!!!! I would suggest this to ANYONE!!! I give it a 20 out of the 1-10 scale
"Awesome YA series!!"
The last book in a series is always bittersweet. You want to know the end so you don't have to keep waiting for the next book but you also want your book friends to keep visiting you! Sigh, I loved this whole series. So many wonderful and engaging characters. I can only hope that the Della spin-off series happens and we get updates on the Shadow Falls gang.
Kylie is working on discovering what it means to be a Chameleon with her own kind. They are so cut off from the outside and antiquated. She feels just as lost as she did before going to the camp. Things move along quickly and the threat of Mario pops up again.
Of, course she has another ghost this book demanding help and being super vague. As usual the big reveal is unexpected. This ghost was definitely more of a presence than some of the past spirits. I was happy with the whole resolution there. It seemed very fitting.
Once again most of the story is spent on the great Derrick or Lucas debate. At teh begininhg of the book I thought I knew who I wanted her to choose. But some things were made very clear like who really cheated and who didn't. In the end, I was happy with how things played out. Although, I thought she could have come to some of her decisions way sooner. In the end things made sense and you knew the pairing was right. Fated!
Loved all the side stories going on this book! Holiday and Burnett ( cutest couple ever!!), Della and Steve(oh, I can not wait for this book), Miranda and Perry(sickeningly sappy cute), and several other surprise couples. Really great seeing everybody develop and get their happy-ish ending!
Really well written and perfectly paced. I was pleasantly surprised that with all the drama going on around her Kylie did not go all angsty teen. She stayed the spunky gal I have loved since the first book! I felt there were still a few vague spots in the story at the end but maybe they will pop up in the spin-off series. Most notably things that make Kylie extra special even in her own kind.
Sure some events were way predictable, but if you are clued into foreshadowing it is easy to see the writing on the wall. Not everything was fomula, there were plenty of side twists and turns to keep things fresh and a reader on her toes!
Overall, it was a wonderful reading experience. I laughed. I cried, I never wanted it to end! This is one of those awesome series that I will talk about with every teen I know!
"A very disappointing last book to this series"
I'm not one to usually write a review on the books I listen to, but this one has been so bad that I've to write something! Ok, the series haven't been outstanding or anything like that. They've been fairly entertaining and I found the original concept of the books to be interesting enough. But, in the last book, the main character goes from mildly annoying to completely and utterly ridiculous. Everyone's attention is focused on this girl who for some unexplained reason is repeatedly told: "you're the only one that matters" and is absolutely adored and defended by everyone around her. It's not like she's some female Harry Potter or Frodo, which I think is what the author is aiming to create, but the plot fails to be relevant enough for this girl to be the savior/protector of the magical, or human, world. Also, I'm sorry, but I fail to see how a 17 year old virgin can possibly know more than her own grown adult teachers about sex and contraception to the point that she is the one everyone goes for advice on this topic and she becomes so weirdly involved in the sex life of all those around her while her own love life is such a joke! I couldn't be bothered to listen to most of this book, I ended up falling asleep, and skipping to the end to know that much at least, but even then was mostly meh!
