KIRKUS REVIEW

The fourth installment of the popular Shadow Falls series finds Kylie still confused about her supernatural status.

Kylie attends Shadow Falls, a camplike “school” in Texas that secretly trains supernatural teens to live in the normal world. The school hosts an assortment of vampires, werewolves, witches, shape-shifters and the like. Kylie has never been able to determine to which “race” she belongs. Kylie’s ghost dad told her she was a “chameleon,” but she doesn’t know what that means. Meanwhile, she’s still trying to choose between the two hottie guys who love her, werewolf Lucas and half-fae Derek. Also, Kylie gets continued visits from a ghost who looks just like still-living Holiday, the camp leader. Is Holiday in danger? What’s going on? New characters enter—could they be enemies? And could Kylie be in danger within Shadow Falls itself? Established romance writer Hunter lays out her plot threads and weaves in plenty of banter, much of it comic, between Kylie and her roommates. Constantly warned not to go into the woods, Kylie does so consistently and maddeningly, creating much of the book’s suspense. The ghosts easily come across as the most memorable, imaginative characters. It all fits the current paranormal craze perfectly.

Fans will like it. (Paranormal romance. 12-16)
