Reviews Awake at Dawn (Shadow Falls, #2)

  • Mateja
    C.C. Hunter wrote an amazing sequel to Born at Midnight. Everything I loved about Born at Midnight was present in Awake at Dawn. Awake at Dawn is absolutely unputdownable. I read this book in record time. I got up an hour early in the morning to read, I read on the bus on my way to class, I even ignored my friends at break time in order to immerse myself in Kylie's story. Awake at dawn is a delightful read with a plot full of twists and turns, ge...

    Brilliant sequel.I AM SOOOOOOO TEAM DEREK!!!!!UCH LUCAS CAN GET STUFFED. NORMALLY IM ALL FOR THE WEREWOLVES. BUT LUCAS... I JUST CAN'T. DEREK IS TOO HOT.PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, DONT BE STUPID KYLIE AND PICK DEREK, FOR GODS SAKE. I thought we'd finally find out what Kylie truly is in this installment... So it kinda dragged a bit and got a tad frustrating but next time maybe eh?

    May 10 2016Can't stop won't stop I seriously love this series!!July 16 2016Awesome sequel!!! These books I don't even know what about them but I just go through them so fast!! They are funny and even at some points I was crying just in love!!! Only complaint is that for certain parts it's very predictable

    Well, I won't be continuing this series. The issues I had with the first book, became even more glaring in Awake at Dawn. My main two issues were -✮ The pace seemed to drag even more. "....I mean, if I understand this right, someone is going to die. Actually die and it’s not going to be an easy death, either.” All the problems in Kylie’s life started bouncing around her head like ping-pong balls. Tears filled her eyes. It still hurt to ...
  • Beatriz Lins
    Born at Midnight was a great start to this series. I liked the writing, and even though Kylie was boring sometimes, it was still enjoyable. I didn't like certain things about it, like the shallow romance, and the mistery about what Kylie was. I hoped that, in Awake at Dawn, those things would develop, and we'd get to know a lot more about Shadow Falls. I can say, for sure, that this didn't happen. Well, to start with, Kylie doesn't know what she ...
  • Amber I. (AwesomeSauce Book Club)
    I would like to just say I NEED MORE LUCAS! Okay so you might guess I am a total hot werewolf fan. While I loved every minute he was in this book, I would like more, lots and lots more!!Awake at Dawn is a fantastic sequel. All of our favorites are back and just as loveable as before. Its just a fun new series with an amazing set of characters, one hot werewolf (okay the fairy is too, lol) and lots of mystery. Kylie is still trying to figure out w...

    Almost 400 pages and the only thing that pretty much happened was her breastestes mysteriously grew a cup size.
  • Dana Cristiana
    3,5 stars / 5.This sequel was far more interesting than the first "Shadow Falls" novel; especially in the beginning. But in the middle it was just a long process where little concrete things were happening.Kylie Galen met another ghost now, a woman. One that kept telling Kylie that someone dear to her will die soon and that she has to save that person. But Kylie didn't knew exactly who she refers to.Kylie goes to the waterfall, but no big deal is...

    Saying I was thrilled when Awake at Dawn arrived on my doorstep would out it lightly. I was beyond thrilled because after finishing Born At Midnight I was in love with the story, the characters and CC's writing. I devoured Awake at Dawn in one day and needless to day I was sad when it was over... We are back in Shadow Falls with Kylie, her great friends, the boys and the camp leaders. Kylie still has no clue who she is and what she will become ot...
  • Alexa ❤️
    5 Stars Awake at Dawn picks up where BaM leaves off with many more questions, a whole new ghost and reeling from the last eat drama which is also what AaD leaves us at the end as well. Kylie is going through more supernatural changes whilst mending her relationships with her parents and trying to decide between Derek and Lucas (what a dilemma to have!).We’ve been introduced to the main villain of the series now - finally And Kylie is getting c...

    I'm really enjoying this series! It's very addicting. This was a great sequel but it wasn't as good as the first book. Lucas Parker, you stole my heart! I love him so much!! I can't wait to read the third book! :) Read my full review here
  • Liz
    “Life isn't supposed to be easy. Generally speaking, the harder something is the more rewarding the results will be.” This is one of series that seem to get better with each book. I am glad I decided to read this one.In this book a new ghost starts to visit Kylie and warns her that someone she loves will die soon, but Kylie does not understand whom she has to save. Moreover, there is the problem with vampire attacks and her supernatural iden...
  • QiJia 치쟈
    This is a nice sequel. Though I still prefer the first book.It's still funny and adventurous and full of teen dramas.... which gets a bit annoying at times. Kylie is still trying to discover what she is. Is she a vampire? werewolf? shapeshifter? fairy? She's still confused with her feelings for Derek and Lucas but decided to give Derek a chance. And I must agree with Lucas, Derek is an idiot. Derek is patient and understanding guy BUT what the he...
  • E. C. McRoy
    I give this one a 3.6, meaning I really got into it despite there being things about it I didn't care for.*full review to come*
  • Caitlin Smith
    This series is so fun and entertaining!Awake at Dawn continues on from Born at Midnight and Kylie has finally come to terms with her situation. As new abilities awaken within Kylie, she longs to find an answer whilst also being haunted by a spirit that insists someone Kylie loves is going to die unless she stops it. Caught between a half fae with a kind heart and a mysterious werewolf she shares a past with, Kylie must figure out what is going on...

    Loved it!I liked the story and the characters so much! I didn't even care about the love triangle! OK, I have to admit that for some reason I prefer Lucas (he's more mysterious) from Derek (he's just a nice guy). Kylie is a very interesting character! She is a good and true friend, smart and funny and a typical teenager. I was happy to see that she has a better relationship with her mother because I have to admit that I like her mother a lot!Also...
  • Emily
    After reading the first book in the series, Born at Midnight, I just had to read the second book because of the cliff hanger that was presented. Awake at Dawn was a mystical book that once again brought me back to shadow falls, a camp full of supernatural creatures. The protagonist Kylie Galen still isn’t able to figure out what type of supernatural creature she is and she is determined to find out. Although she might just look like a teenage g...
  • J. Lee
    Kylie doesn’t know what she is. Kylie kisses a boy. Kylie has a sudden not-so-climatic event. Kylie still doesn’t what she is. Kylie is at the end of book two. For me, that was exactly what it was like reading this book. I remember I complained about the fact that Hunter didn’t use first person in the first installment of this series and unfortunately I have to do it again. In my opinion, if you’re going to write in third person, you shou...
  • Darren Hagan
    **3.5 stars****No spoilers**I don't really know what to say. It was fun, easy to read, had some nice friendships and an improving mother/daughter relationship. Some of the imagery was beautiful, for example "Kylie popped up from her chair and shot out of the dining room like someone wearing white and in desperate need of a tampon."......Jokes aside, it wasn't terrible. There was far too much relationship drama and if we don't find out what Kylie ...
  • Jena
    OH my goodness I LOVE this cover
  • Mary-ellen
    We discover more about Kylie's abilities in this one, which makes things more interesting, but also a little unbelievable. It did get a little tiring that it was so obvious what the ghost wanted her to do, but she was so obtuse about it. These books are a good escape read. If you can get past things being a little predictable, and the sex-shaming, they do have some fun elements.

    My REVIEW -
  • Mada
    Loved it. Derek is amazing and I really like Burnett and Holiday. They are so funny togheter. Can't wait to read Taken at Dusk.
  • Catherine Ford
    I give this book a solid 4 [yes I've been watching too many cooking competitions lately] I enjoyed this book just like I did the first one. I believe all teenagers should read this series because it deals with a lot of teen stuff and gives very wise advice. I also like the emphasis it places on friends and family. I guessed who was to be saved from the very beginning I just didn't know from what, so that part was slightly boring. But, the kick as...
  • Jennifer
    The Good: Kylie still doesn't know what she is, so that still annoys the hell out of me. But, she's getting there. She's dealt. She's accepted. Most of the time, she still has a ghost issue. She's figuring it all out and it's extremely interesting. I love her getting closer with Miranda and Della. They have a very authentic teen girls at camp getting becoming friends thing going on, with all the insecurity and vulnerability that goes with that. A...
  • Amanda ♕ Bookrose
    This second book was totally better than the first one (even though I missed Lucas during half of the book). I think that there is a little character growth going on with Kylie which is a major improvement. She accepted that she's a supernatural and tries to know who she really is so she's on the right path. One thing I didn't like is how she always holds herself back with the boys. I'm not telling her to throw herself at them either, but she hol...
  • Megs ♥
    I liked this book, but not as much as the first. It was still fun and I, of course, still love CC's writing. I just really want to know what Kylie is and I keep thinking come onnnnn already...I guess that's what she wants us to be like though, isn't it? As far as the boys I am definitely liking Derek, but I really seem to be in the minority it seems based on some reading I did on her blog. Most of her fans love Lucas. I do too! I just like Derek ...
  • meghann
    I love this series. It just works for me. The whole "growth spurt" thing had me rolling my eyes though. What's that? You woke up with bigger boobs, longer hair and are a couple of inches taller? Your milkshake is now bringing all the boys to the yard? The struggle is real. I do hope that mystery is solved in the next book before a J-Lo butt is thrown in. Other than that, it was a great book, and I can't wait to start the next one.
  • Kris
    I remember liking the first book well enough to make a note to read this second one. But... why??? I can 't remember why I liked it enough to do so now. I pretty much skimmed through this book because I found myself losing interest really early on and zoning out. I just couldn't get into the characters, I just couldn't care about the plot, and I just couldn't stay focused on what was happening because it was all ridiculous roll-your-eyes teenaged...
