Review: Born at Midnight by C.C. Hunter

Released: March 29, 2011
Publisher: St. Martin's Griffin
Rated: YA
Series: Shadow Falls, Book 1
Buy: Amazon
Welcome to Shadow Falls camp, nestled deep in the woods of a town called Fallen…One night Kylie Galen 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, and within hours of arriving, it becomes painfully clear that her fellow campers aren’t just “troubled.” Here at Shadow Falls, vampires, werewolves, shapshifters, witches and fairies train side by side—learning to harness their powers, control their magic and live in the normal world.
Kylie’s never felt normal, but surely she doesn’t belong here with a bunch of paranormal freaks either. Or does she? They insist Kylie is one of them, and that she was brought here 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 smokin’ hot 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 feels deeply uncertain about everything, one thing is becoming painfully clear—Shadow Falls is exactly where she belongs…

What I thought

I'm glad I finally gave this one a chance. I've had it on my tbr list for a while now, I kept looking at it and for some reason, always left it on the list to pick something else up. Born at Midnight was a fun read.

Going in, I knew I was going to have something to snipe about. I really do hate love triangles. I always feel like I pick the wrong guy. (I'm not telling you who I picked). I haven't taken the time to go around to the authors blog to see if this series has a number of books planned out or not, but I'm hoping that the love triangle gets cleared up.

I found the story line interesting. I liked the idea of the camp. I really did. Even more, I liked how we have to learn, along with Kylie, what she really is. And if we want to believe, even if she may not. I loved the mystery aspect and I loved how we weren't in the know when Kylie wasn't.

I'm definitely going to pick up the next book. There are a lot of great characters and great potential for this one. I am definitely glad I finally got my hands on it.

I'm really interested in this one. I'm with you on love triangles though I do enjoy them but I find they usually pick the wrong guy. I hope this one gets worked on in the following books. Great review!

I love this series, I have read the two books published until now and I can´t wait until April for the third book. I agree with you this is a "need to be read" book.

I agree this is a fun read! It doesn't top my list but I did really enjoy it.

I've seen lots of good reviews for this book. I'm still a little unsure whether it's for me cause of the love triangle, but sometimes they work out so maybe it would be okay... hard to say. Someday I may have to give it a try.
