Review: Born at Midnight by C.C. Hunter

Title: Born at Midnight
Author: C.C. Hunter
Source: Received through publicist in exchange for an honest review


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…


Born at Midnight is the first book in the Shadow Falls series by C.C. Hunter. It's a young adult paranormal story featuring Kylie – a 16 year old who doesn't believe she is anything but normal. When she is shipped off to a camp for troubled teens, she realizes that some myths are real and that maybe she isn't who she thought she was.

This book has a lot of emotions mixed in, which are right on track with a hormonal teenager. Kylie is the type of girl who never really fit in, and never felt confident in herself. Since that description fits me well, I was able to connect with the character. At Shadow Falls, Kylie meets Derek and Lucas. This begins the love triangle, which is done perfectly in my opinion. Now that I've finished this book, I still can't decide which guy I like more. Kylie seems to feel differently, but equally, for both guys. Each one has traits that appeal to her. Each time I was leaning one way, I would be swayed back the other way.

There are a lot of wonderful characters in this book. They were very well written and fun to read about. I liked reading the interactions between Kylie and her new paranormal friends. They each had unique personalities and they added a lot of humor to the book. There was also a lot of mystery in this book to keep you guessing and turning the pages. Luckily, the next 2 books in this series are already out so I don't have to wait long to find out where the author takes this story next!
