Review: Kylie’s life has been one huge whirlwind for months. She never felt like she belonged anywhere, not at home, not at school, and now not even with her best friend. That is, until she got to Shadow Falls, where nothing is as it seems. After discovering that she isn’t completely human she makes it her quest to find out what type of supernatural she really is and when she finally figures it out, well let’s just say it isn’t what she was expecting. Turns out she is a Chameleon, that is to say that she has a bit of every type of supernatural in her blood and she can become anyone of them as needed. Plus, she is a protector. In this installment of Kylie’s story, she has decided to go all in with Lucas and to just be friends with Derek. She is also determined to find out what it really means to be a Chameleon. As always, she has a new ghost to contend with AND her mother’s boyfriend, whom she doesn’t trust even though his pattern shows that he is just a regular old human.
I am giving this book 4 1/2 stars out of 5. In my opinion, this series only gets better the longer it goes. It is so easy to get lost in these books, lost at Shadow Falls camp turned school for supernatural teens. The characters have shown amazing growth and development throughout each book, but I feel like their progress becomes more pronounced as the story goes. I love how easy it is to relate to the characters and how beautifully C.C. Hunter describes the camp and all of the characters. There is only one more book in this series and I must say that I am truly saddened to be coming to the end of the Shadow Falls journey. I sincerely can’t wait to see what is going to happen next! As to why I am giving a half star instead of going for the whole 5 is this; even though Kylie chose Lucas, there is so much trying to break them apart, including Derek who is still trying to pursue Kylie. Also, part of the end of this book goes along the same vain and I was spitting nails after the last page. Which makes me even more anxious to read Chosen at Nightfall, the last book in this series.
As with the previous books I recommend this book for grades 9th/10th and up. Be sure to check your local library for the Shadow Falls series!
