Title: Awake at Dawn (Shadow Falls #2)
Author: C.C. Hunter
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 book in the Shadow Falls series by C.C. Hunter. I think I liked it even better than the first! In this book, Kylie still struggles with what she is. She is also still trying to deal with her feelings for Derek and Lucas. There was more excitement in this book though.
It was interesting watching Kylie's abilities emerge and realizing that she is so unique from the others at Shadow Falls. One of her abilities is communicating with ghosts. A ghost comes to her in this book, telling her that someone she loves will die if she doesn't do something – but she isn't told who is in trouble or what Kylie is able to do to help. This puzzle torments her throughout the book. It must be very troubling to know that someone's life depends on you. Of course, Kylie is a little slow to see the signs that are pointing to a certain person...
The love triangle continues. When I read the first book, I was leaning toward Lucas. Now, I can't decide which one I want Kylie to choose. They are both great guys who adore her. There are a lot of great characters in this book. The author did a wonderful job with characterization. It's not often that I'm interested in the lives of the supporting characters.
There was some excitement at the end, though it felt kind of rushed. This one ended in a bit of a cliffhanger – not a huge one but big enough to make you look forward to the next book. Luckily, I won't have to wait because I have book #3 right here waiting on me.
