Kylie Galen's about to spend the next three months trapped with a bunch of freaks. After getting caught at a party with alcohol, she's shipped off to Shadow Falls Camp - a camp for troubled teens. And these kids aren't normal freaks, either. As Kylie discovers, they're freaky freaks - witches, vampires, werewolves, fairies, and shapeshifters - and the camp is a training ground where they're taught to harness their powers.

All Kylie wants to do is finish out her sentence at the camp...but everything changes when she meets Derek and Lucas. Derek is a smokin' hot guy with magical powers who's making it painfully clear that he wants to be more than just friend. And Lucas is a werewolf pack leader with whom she shares a secret past. Lucas has always made Kylie's insides melt - unfortunately, he wants nothing to do with her.

Now Kylie's got two boys playing tug of war with her heart - and a sneaking suspicion that she has magical powers of her own. After Shadow Falls Camp, how will she ever be able to go back to her normal life again.

Review: Kylie's not a bad kid, she was in the wrong place at the wrong time...and it wasn't somewhere she wanted to be anyway. She was caught at a party where alcohol was available (and she's underage) and decides to take her lumps. It doesn't help anything that her supposed best friend is only worried about herself and her parents are splitting up. Now she's really all alone - sent away to a camp...for freaks. Really freaky people, that is - such as vampires, witches, fae, shapeshifters, and humans with supernatural gifts. Kylie's sure she doesn't belong here...or does she?

Kylie and the other kids are awesome! I love the characters and the universe that Ms. Hunter has created in the first of the Shadow Falls series. I hope there are many more to come. :-) There's suspense, action, mystery, paranormals, and romance all wrapped together in a coming-of-age story that keeps you on the edge of your seat. Ms. Hunter has more than the potential to create many more wonderful novels, she has the ability to do so! She's a wonderful writer whose words captivate you from the first page. Pick up Born at Midnight and lose yourself in Kylie's world...

Shadow Falls series: Turned at Dark (.5), Born at Midnight (1), Awake at Dawn (2), Taken at Dusk (3), Whispers at Moonrise (4)
