"It gave her a small sense of control."
I also found Kylie to be a somewhat childish protagonist. Seriously, I'm younger than this girl and I'm more mature than her. That line comes from when she ever so slightly rebelled. Rebelling is interesting... when done right. Actually, there isn't really much of a right in rebelling I'll change that. Rebelling is interesting, if not done in the way Kylie Galen was doing it.
Awake at Dawn was slightly better than Born at Midnight but not by a lot. I will not lie to you guys. I fell asleep while reading this book. It was seriously in my hand. That's hardly ever happened to me before.
Anyway, I think I'll buy and read the next book.... eventually. But I can't guarantee that it'll happen any month soon. The only reason I want to get the next book (I only want it a TINY bit) is because 1. Luke 2. I want to know what she is, it's probably some creature the author made up. Not really much to do with the plot, I know.
Here's the synopsis after that long rant:
Step into the world of Shadow Falls, a camp that helps teens tap into their special... talents. Once you visit, you’ll never forget it—and you’ll never, ever be the same.
From the moment Kylie Galen arrived at Shadow Falls Camp, she’s had one burning question: What am I? Surrounded by vampires, werewolves, shape-shifters, fairies and witches, Kylie longs to figure out her own supernatural identity…and what her burgeoning powers mean. And now she’ll need them more than ever, because she’s being haunted by a new spirit who insists that someone Kylie knows—and loves—will die before the end of the summer. If only she only knew who she was supposed to save. And how...
But giving Kylie the most trouble is her aching heart. Gorgeous werewolf Lucas left camp with another girl, but he’s still visiting Kylie in her dreams. And Derek, a sexy half Fae who’s always been there for her when she needed him, is pushing to get more serious—and growing impatient, especially when Lucas returns. Kylie knows she needs to decide between the boys, and it’s tearing her up inside.
Yet romance will have to wait, because something from the dark side of the supernatural world is hiding in Shadow Falls. It’s about to threaten everything she holds dear... and bring her closer to her destiny.
