Whispers at Moonrise by C.C. Hunter ~ Review

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.

I continue to enjoy this series.  There are great characters, an interesting paranormal world and a story that keeps the pages turning.  Good stuff.

Kylie is a great main character.  She's struggling with her feeling between two boys (I'm not struggling at all though I was in book one), and trying to figure out who she is and how she fits in this world.  Sounds like what most teens are going through until you add the supernatural aspects of the story.  I think that's one of the things I like most about this series.  It truly is about the issues teens struggle with and even some adults.  Add in the witches, wares, shifters, vampires and fae and things get very interesting.

I love Kylie's best friends.  They are great fun and always have Kylie's back.  I enjoyed the relationship that built between Holiday and the resident vampire, Barnett.  The shape shifter Perry is another one I really enjoy.  By far the best two are Derick and Lucas.  Yes, it's a love triangle but that's not the focus of the story.  I had these two tied in book one.  No clear cut choice.  But that has changed.  After book 3, I have landed on Lucas' side.  At the end of this book, I was more than mad at him.  But I haven't switched sides.  Yes, he needs to do a lot of groveling but I'll eventually forgive him.  Hopefully, Kylie will too.

As you can tell, the characters have my emotions involved.  That's always a good thing for a character driven reader such as myself.  But there's more to love about this book.  I love the world of supernaturals that this series has.  It feels like a place I'd be happy to live and be part of.  A place that makes escaping there enjoyable.

The writing continues to be good.  I look forward to book 5 and the finish of this one.  

If you have haven't read this series, it's a good one and well worth your reading time.
