Summary: Goodreads

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 just finished the first three books in this series a few weeks ago, read the review here, and I was delighted to be able to get a copy of this one so quickly.  I was not disappointed with Whispers at Moonrise at all.  It kept up the fast pace of the previous three books and was in fact even more amazing.    There was more tension, more romance, more mystery and way more confusion for poor Kylie.

My fervent hope is that one of the larger tv companies will pick up this series and make it into the next Vampire Diaries.  Let me explain - we have a bunch of good looking teens at at school camp.  Each one is a different type of paranormal and they are all expected to get along.  A main character who cannot seem to decide what type of paranormal she is - cue different one for each episode.  The main character is also a ghost whisperer - cue different ghost mystery for each episode.  Secondary characters who have crushes on each other left right and centre - cue different romance each episode.  A steaming triangle between main character, a werewolf and a fae - cue romantic angst each episode. And for a bit of humour each episode - have one of Miranda's witchy spells go wrong.  Then we have two positive influence adults who also have a romantic connection with major sparks - cue adult romance each episode.  Lastly, throw in the shadowy govenment agency that definitely seems to have their own agenda - cue creepy grey-suited guys in the background each episode. 

Sounds amazing doesn't it?  Please, please, please somebody out there see the potential in this series for tv, I really want to see it on the screen.  I'll take a movie if I can't have a series.

At the end of this exciting volume I find out that there is a fifth and final installment coming out in Spring 2013 called Chosen at Nightfall.

 Thank you Ms Hunter, I'm having fun with this series.

  1. I haven't read these CC Hunter books, but I do want to. Some teens at work tell me I should. I think the covers are so pretty, and although I haven't read the books, it does seem like they would make an awesome tv show. Here's hoping!
