Awake at Dawn
Author: C.C. Hunter
Rating: 2 3/4 stars
Summary: Now that she’s settled in at Shadow Falls Camp, Kylie Galen’s determined to discover the extent of her supernatural abilities. But with a ghost insisting someone Kylie loves is about die, a rogue vampire on a murdering rampage, and her sixth sense telling her someone is watching her, Kylie’s quest for answers is quickly put on hold.
To make matters worse, just when she’s about to give her heart to Derek, a half-fairy, he starts pulling away. When Lucas, a werewolf with whom Kylie shares a secret past, returns, Kylie’s feels more conflicted than ever. Her weekend with her mom should have been the just the break Kylie needs, but it turns out to be her breaking point. Someone from the dark side of the supernatural world has plans for Kylie--and it'll take all her resources to get back to Shadow Falls alive...
Review: We have our answer: this series stays semi-okay. Nothing really changed from the first book except for even more boy problems. About half of this book was about Kylie trying to decide between Lucas and Derek. Ugh. Super-short summary of this book: Kylie can't decide between Lucas and Derek, but she's leaning toward Derek. Half-way through the book, Derek dumps her. For about five pages, Kylie is close to getting forcibly engaged to a vampire. Lucas is there for the entire book. I am thoroughly annoyed.
