Goodreads Synopsis:

A breathtaking new installment of the bestselling Shadow Falls series for young adults by rising star C. C. Hunter!At a camp filled with vampires, werewolves, and fairies, Kylie Galen has always struggled to figure out what she is. Now she finally knows the truth, but she's left with more questions than answers. She doesn't have a clue what her heritage means or how to harness her newfound powers. All she knows is that she needs to sort out her feelings for Derek, the sexy half-Fae who just confessed his love, and Lucas, her werewolf boyfriend who seems more committed to his pack than to their relationship. All the while, Kylie's dealing with a group of underground rogues who want her dead and a mysterious grandfather who makes it clear he doesn't trust the FRU . . . or Shadow Falls. Soon Kylie will have to choose: Will she stay with the new family she's formed at Shadow Falls, or will she leave with her grandfather and embrace her destiny?

My Review:
      Kylie finally knows what she is!! After all this mystery and going through hell to find out what her identity is Kylie is relieved. But she still have many questions that are unanswered. Her grandfather has finally showed up to help Kylie and wants her to move in with him. This is where the hard part comes. Kylie must decide if she wants to stay at Shadow Falls and be with her friends or go with her grandfather who is willing to teach her about her ancestors/abilities. This is a very hard decision for Kylie, not to mention Derek just confessed his love for her, Lucas has been acting like a jerk, and Kylie's seeing the ghost of someone close to her that's still alive! Can things get any worse!? How can she possibly handle everything, and keep her sanity? What sacrifices will Kylie have to make in order to find out about herself and where she ultimately belongs?

Some of the characters pissed me off a lot in this book. Lets start with Lucas. He is arrogant, a jerk, and most importantly he ignores Kylie. Since Lucas's pack forbids him to go out with Kylie, he has been keeping his distance. This distance has caused a riff in their relationship making Kylie feel unloved and abandoned. Even though, Lucas is in love with Kylie, he must abide by the rules of the Pack in order to become the Alpha. Derek on the other hand, is a sick love puppy, who won't back down from Kylie. Derek wants Kylie and he is always there to support her. But Kylie is in love with Lucas and there in lies the problem. A predictable love triangle with Kylie in the center of it all. Kylie is also an annoying character in this book. She takes her time to deal with Derek's confession and is stringing him along. Just let him go already!? Holiday and Burnett are my favorite of them all!!!!!! They are so cute together. You can tell Burnett loves Holiday a lot even though he is a tough, bad-ass Vampire. I can't wait for Perry and Miranda to get together! And Della is just a hoot!

Overall, lots of mystery, action, suspense, and a fast pace. I really liked how Hunter incorporated different supernatural characters and gave the story line an intriguing factor. And I love the supernatural being that Kylie finds out she is. Its super cool and something totally different!
