Publisher Comments:

Don't miss this spectacular new young adult fantasy series from C.C. Hunter! Born at Midnight will steal your heart and haunt your dreams. Welcome to Shadow Falls camp, nestled deep in the woods of a town called Fallen…

One night Kylie Galen finds herself at the wrong party, with the wrong people, and it changes her life forever.  Her mother ships her off to Shadow Falls—a camp for troubled teens, and within hours of arriving, it becomes painfully clear that her fellow campers aren't just "troubled." Here at Shadow Falls, vampires, werewolves, shapeshifters, witches and fairies train side by side—learning to harness their powers, control their magic and live in the normal world.

Kylie's never felt normal, but surely she doesn't belong here with a bunch of paranormal freaks either. Or does she? They insist Kylie is one of them, and that she was brought here for a reason. As if life wasn't complicated enough, enter Derek and Lucas. Derek's a half-fae who's determined to be her boyfriend, and Lucas is a smokin' hot werewolf with whom Kylie shares a secret past. Both Derek and Lucas couldn't be more different, but they both have a powerful hold on her heart.

Even though Kylie feels deeply uncertain about everything, one thing is becoming painfully clear—Shadow Falls is exactly where she belongs…

Review:

"Sixteen-year-old Kylie Galen wants to believe it was a case of wrong place, wrong time that landed her in the Shadow Falls Camp for juvenile delinquents. She'd rather focus on big issues like her grandmother's death, her parents' divorce, and her ex-boyfriend's betrayal. Instead, she is surrounded by 'freaks,' who she's asked to believe are vampires, werewolves, and fairies. Kylie's ability to see ghosts doesn't make her a supernatural creature, too, does it? Hunter, who writes romance novels as Christie Craig, treads familiar territory by using a camp-cum-school for misunderstood magical youth as the setting for her first YA novel, which kicks off the Shadow Falls series. After the info-dump beginning, the story settles into an entertaining series of romantic quandaries and breathtaking revelations that propel Kylie on her quest to discover whether she is, indeed, human. The evolving, not-always-easy relationships among Kylie and her cabin mates Della and Miranda are rendered as engagingly as Kylie's angst over dangerous Lucas and appealing Derek. Just enough plot threads are tied up to make a satisfying stand-alone tale while whetting appetites for sequels to come. Ages 12 — up. (Apr.)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright PWyxz LLC)

Synopsis:

Born at Midnight is addicting.  Kylies journey of self-discovery and friendship is so full of honesty, its impossible not to fall in love with her and Shadow Falls..and with two sexy males vying for her attention, the romance is scorching.  Born at Midnight has me begging for more, and I love, love, love it!” –Verb Vixen

Born at Midnight has a bit of everything…a strong unique voice from a feisty female lead, a myriad of supporting Supernatural characters, a fiery romance with two intriguing guys - mixed all together with a bit of mystery – making Born at Midnight a sure fire hit!”  --A Life Bound By Books

“There are so many books in the young adult paranormal genre these days that its hard to choose a good one. I was so very glad to discover Born at Midnight. If you like P.C. and Kristin Cast or Alyson Noel, I am sure you will enjoy Born at Midnight!” –Night Owl Reviews

"Fun and compulsively readable, with a winning heroine and an intriguing cast of secondary characters” –Jenna Black, author of Glimmerglass
