Eternal by C.C. Hunter

Shadow Falls, a school for paranormal teens, wormed its way into my heart when I read Kylie's first book: Born at Midnight. I had no idea that the series would continue on past Kylie's story, but it has and I am loving Della's story as much, if not more than, the original series.

Della is unique. Not only is she stubborn, tough as nails, and sarcastic, Della is a Reborn. Being a Reborn means having stronger vampiric powers than the average vampire. It also means that she is now bonded with Chase - a mysterious vamp that is less open than Della, which is quite the accomplishment because Della does NOT talk about things. EVER.

Being bonded is difficult for Della, especially since it is something she doesn't want and she most definitely doesn't understand. But being bonded to Chase as a Reborn is not the only thing connecting them. They also seem to have a ghost who wants both of their help, which only makes things even more complicated than they were to begin with. Now Della, with Chase's help (whether she likes it or not), must follow the clues left by the ghost before they run out of time. However, the ghost connects Della to more than to just Chase.

The ghost also continues Della's search for the truth behind her family secrets and reveals her father's dark past. This has Della questioning everything she has ever known and loved.

Filled with excitement and romance, Eternal is a must have for any Shadow Falls fan. Don't miss this second book in the Shadow Falls: After Dark trilogy. C.C. Hunter manages to once again make readers laugh, cry, and genuinely care about the characters in this fantastic book about paranormal teens. The ending will have you begging for more (or it will have you tossing the book across the room, like I almost did). Della and the whole Shadow Falls gang do not disappoint.

P.S. Be sure to check out my tumblr where I am having a giveaway to promote the Shadow Falls series in honor of the release of Eternal on October 28!

Haha! Fooled Ya!

Going with my no excuses mode, I'm going to just hop right in.

Sorry I haven't done as I said. I am going to try to be present more than I have been for the last couple of years...the key word there is try. I know I still owe a Chosen at Nightfall review, but I now also owe a Reborn review and an Eternal review. Seeing as Eternal is the one I have most recently read, I am going to post that review first. And here is the good news. I already have that review written! I just need to edit it and make sure it is what I want to publish, so yeah. I will have it posted tomorrow for sure and that is a promise.

In the meantime, you should go to my tumblr (here) to check out the Shadow Falls: After Dark giveaway I am hosting. I hope you all are doing well and here's to fresh starts (again...)!

I'm a Terrible Terrible Person. Not That I Didn't Already Know This.

Hi. Been a while. I know. Sorry. I'll try to not make excuses. So yeah.

I've done a lot of reading since I last wrote. Like a lot of reading. And the one thing I really want to talk about is Chosen at Nightfall by C.C. Hunter. But before I get there, let me say that I'm not going to make promises that I can't keep. So I'm going to start over fresh. I'm going to take this blogging thing one day at a time and hopefully I'll get you all to forgive me.

The first thing I would like to do it revamp my reviews of books. I'm going to work harder on them. I'm going to try and make them sound less cheesy and less alike. I'm going to try to make books sound more awesome, if that is even possible. So I might take longer on a review. I might even read a book twice before getting around to a review. And that is what I am going to do with Chosen at Nightfall. I read the book in one sitting originally while I was still taking classes at university. Hopefully I will be able to sit down and be less rushed this time around. The Shadows Falls books are definitely meant to be gobbled up, but they are also meant to be savored. Now is the time for savoring.

So readers look out. I'm going to be getting a new review out to you in the next week (not a promise, but a commitment...I hope). I am also going to get back to some more personal blogging. And be sure to check out my other blog ( I have some writing that I'd like to put on there. Here's to a new experience from me!

So long time no write...sorry about that. You know that thing called school? I am busy trying manage classes and homework which leaves some free time, but I honestly don't know what I have been doing with that free time besides being lazy.

Anywho, I'm here with exciting news! C.C. Hunter has released the new date her newest Shadow Falls book will be released and much much more at her blog: here.It looks as if Chosen at Nightfall won't be the last Shadow Falls book...I'm really excited to see more from Della's point-of-view. But mostly I want to know who the heck Kylie ends up with. It is going to drive me crazy I am sure.

So I have read more books, but expect all of the reviews I have been meaning to do before I get to the latest books I have read (not even going to mention what they are because that is sort of pointless...). And I'm off to do more school.

Whispers at Moonrise by C.C. Hunter

Of all of the things her dad could have told her, why did he have to say that she, Kylie Galen, was a chameleon? What did that even mean? And why did he tell her that the would figure it out together?

Kylie's life has always been a mess, but this - this topped it all off. Between trying to figure out what being a chameleon is and figuring out her feelings for both Lucas and Derek, Kylie is stressed out to the the max. Being a chameleon has almost distracted her from her ghost problems. Almost.

When the ghost she is helping looks suspiciously like the camp leader, Holiday, Kylie really begins to freak. The ghost wants to tell her something important, but like every other ghost Kylie has ever come across, this ghost won't just come out and say it. And with the possibility of Mario's gang being after her Kylie just wants to stop worrying about everything.

Kylie's world has never been thrown into such disarray before. C.C. Hunter is able to show how Kylie's life is spinning out of control and readers will be with Kylie every step of the way. More than one mystery is taking place in Whispers at Moonrise (the fourth book in the Shadow Falls series; other reviews can be found here) and readers will read chapter after chapter to see if their suspicions are correct. Out of all of the Shadow Falls books, Whispers at Moonrise is more focused on the mystery surrounding Kylie and her ghosts, but it still has the love triangle between Kylie, Lucas, and Derek. There is even mystery in Kylie's love life. What exactly is Lucas up to and why won't he tell her things? Join Kylie in finding out what her future holds for her and those she cares for in Whispers at Moonrise.

Received ARC from publisher. Whispers at Moonrise will be available October 2, 2012.
