Extreme Identity Crisis

Happy Tuesday Everyone,


At last! The day I review C.C. Hunter’s YA series, book one, Born At Midnight is here. Some of you (that I’ve talked to personally) know how I feel about this book; others, are unaware. Either way, I plan to give you a taste of what C.C.’s Shadow Falls series (well at least book one) is like:

Teenage years are hard enough, but when you face your parents’ divorce, losing your boyfriend (just because you wouldn’t have sex with the jerk), a therapist who recommends some camp you never heard of, plus you and your best friend aren’t exactly as close as you used to be all at once, it can be a recipe for a really bad day. For Kylie Galen, it most definitely is one heck of a crappy day.

Kylie soon learns that Shadow Falls, the camp she's sent to, isn’t quite what she thought it would be. Vampires, werewolves, shape shifters, and fae running around…straight out of the imagination. How can such things be real? Why do they keep insisting Kylie is a supernatural like them? So what if she sees ghosts? Whoop-de-do that she was born at midnight. She’s still human…right?

But a stalker soldier dude, her vampire and witch roommates, and a fae camp counselor, beg to differ.

What will happen to Kylie if she accepts she just might be one of them? And if she is, what the heck is she? And why, when people know she sees ghosts, are they afraid of her?

Come join C.C. Hunter on a most unique identity crisis journey in a whole different spin on the paranormal in this brand new incredible YA series. I love this book and can’t wait to read Awake At Dawn (book number 2 in the series, being released in October of this year).

CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED!If you aren’t sure about whether to embark with us, then let C.C.’s giveaway help change your mind.
