Summary

Step into the world of Shadow Falls, a camp that helps teens tap into their special…talents. Once you visit, you'll never forget it - and you'll never, ever be the same.

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.

Awake at Dawn is the second installment in C.C. Hunter's young adult fantasy series.

breath taking

It turns and twists and you can really relate to it and the reader is good at all the different characters, so you can tell who is who!! One of my fav's and the second is even better!

Love the book, but the accent throws me off

Absolutely love the Shadow Falls series, so much so that I have the Kindle version which I read at night and then purchased the Audible version so that I can hear it when I’m driving or in the shower.

My only issue with the Audible version is the narrator’s accent (which obviously is just personal taste), the narrator has a Southern accent (which at times gets even stronger depending on which character she’s speaking as).

I’d prefer for the narrator’s accent to be ‘Standard American’ (i.e., neutral accent), which I feel is pretty standard (no pun intended!) when it comes to voice over work, like narrating audiobooks (unless, of course, the book specifically makes note of a character’s accent).

It probably has to do with the fact that— living in a big metropolitan city— that’s my accent and the accent I hear most of the time. But yea, that’s my only “complaint” (if you’d even call it that).

heroine cries constantly.

I love this kind of book, the basic premise which is of course formulaic, but Kylie just cries too much. moments of weakness are fine but emotional fortitude is far more attractive then the constant woe is me.

Shadow falls here I come

This book is an amazing sequel it is a fun roller coaster all the way to the end. The narrator, Katie Schorr, does a great job of bringing the characters to life. By the end of the book you will want to read or listen to the next one.

Horrible. 🤬😡

The reader who reads the book to you sounds like she’s swallowing marbles. With a fake southern accent. Every character has the same southern accent. When she does the male voices they sound no different. You can even hear the reader pause and swallow and breath heavy.

It left me confused on who was who. Very poor story telling.. I only made it to chapter 5 when I had enough of it. I want my money back.

Did I fail to mention the stupid accent?? WHY??! 😡😡 ANNOYING!!!!.
