Born at Midnight – C.C. Hunter

30 Jun

I’m thinking this post will be short and simple.

Did I like it? Not really.

Wanna know why?? Read on!


This cover is so pretty!

I’m a judge-a-book-by-its-cover girl and this book has a sweet cover.


Don’t miss this spectacular new series that will steal your heart and haunt your dreams,  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…

I can’t really think of a lot of things to say about this book.

It had love interests, which are necessary for me in stories, but they weren’t done really well. I have more to say on that topic but that would require spoilers. How about if I just say that there are 2 potential love interests (they’re in the summary) but neither one were believeable.

All of a sudden she was interested in Lucas, and Derek didn’t even talk to her for awhile.

It also took her wayyyyy too long to figure out what her “power” was. Now that I think about it, she never figured it out!! I think… Yeah I don’t remember it. So that was stupid. The author definitely set this up for a sequel. I hate when they do that! But anyway…

I gave this a 2.5/5 because I didn’t like it but I didn’t think it was that horrible. I read it to the end, which is more than I can say for some books. And the authors writing style was actually not bad.

Thanks for reading!
