Shadow Falls Camp is back in session with the most explosive installment yet. A shocking new threat will rock Shadow Falls—changing it forever and altering Kylie’s journey in ways she never imagined.
Even at a camp for supernatural teens, Kylie Galen has never been normal. Not only can she see ghosts, but she doesn’t seem to belong to any one species—she exhibits traits from them all. As Kylie struggles to unlock the secrets of her identity, she begins to worry that Lucas will never be able to accept her for what she is, and what she isn’t…a werewolf. With his pack standing in their way, Kylie finds herself turning more and more to Derek, the only person in her life who’s willing to accept the impossible.
As if life isn’t hard enough, she starts getting visits from the ghost of Holiday, her closest confidante. Trouble is, Holiday isn’t dead…not yet anyway. Now Kylie must race to save one of her own from an unseen danger before it’s too late—all while trying to stop her relationship with Lucas from slipping away forever. In a world of constant confusion, there’s only one thing Kylie knows for sure. Change is inevitable and all things must come to an end…maybe even her time at Shadow Falls.
The breathtaking fourth installment of the New York Times bestselling Shadow Falls series from author C. C. Hunter...Whispers at Moonrise.
“John rose to his feet and apologized to Holiday. Her mom seethed. Her dad tried to talk to her seething mom. Holiday tried to touch everyone. Burnett continued to glare green daggers at John, proving how hard it was for a vampire to accept an apology. Not that she blamed him. Kill him. Kill him. She cheered the vampire on. Lucas hadn’t stopped scowling at Derek and Derek hadn’t stopped ignoring Lucas.”
Favorite Character: Kylie. She’s just a strong character.
“Kylie Galen stood on the porch outside the Shadow Falls office, panic stabbing at her sanity.”
My Musings: Whispers at Moonrise was another great installment in the Shadow Falls Series. In this novel, we follow Kylie in her search to find out what exactly she is, and what her father meant when he told her that she was a chameleon. Hunter’s writing in this novel was great, just as the previous books. Hunter’s writing was descriptive and personable, and it enabled the reader to relate directly with Kylie.
I really enjoyed Kylie’s character. She’s strong willed and determined to find out what she is. She makes sacrifices for this information, and yet she plows on. She’s a headstrong and intelligent character, and the way she acts and matures over the novel is admirable. Another character that I like is Della. She’s protective and somewhat rude, but I love how she looks out for her roommates no matter what. I really enjoyed the romance in the book. As you should know by now, I’m a sucker for a love triangle with two swoony guys. I loved the tension and the events pertaining to the romance. It built on each other, and resulted in a love triangle that has you rooting for both male characters.
The plot of this novel continues to revolve around Kylie’s supernatural type. However, there are many great subplots and events throughout the novel to keep it interesting in itself. The characters face many crazy things, and this novel kept me pulled in the whole way through.
Overall, Whispers at Moonrise was good read. It combined paranormal, romance, and the search for your heritage into one exciting journey.
