Chosen at Nightfall ”Chosen at Nightfall” is the 5th and final installment in ”Shadow Falls” series. A thrilling end to the epic best seller YA paranormal series. It had everything to catch my attention from the first book, a awesome kick ass heroine, love triangle between flawless heroine who is struggling to get to know her true powers, a bad ass werewolf and a handsome faerie.

Now that Kylie is away from shadow fall she is still struggling to to adjust with her kind. To be a chameleon is not that easy they are very strict and old fashioned people who never allow their children to go out to the real world. However angry she must be on her boyfriend Lucas, but she has to return to the camp. There is someone targeting her loved ones and this time she can’t give up. Will she fit in the paranormal world? Will her kind accept her to go into the dangerous task? What will happen to her love life? Who is really in danger? To get answers for this questions you will have to read the book.

I don’t want to spoil the series for others who didn’t read, but I am glad that Kylie made the right decision about her relationship. I am happy about how the series ended. My rating: 4 out of 5. It is must read series for paranormal fiction fans.

Taken at Dusk”Taken at Dusk” is the 3rd book in Shadow Fall series. I am reading a lot of series nowadays like ‘Vampire Dairies”, ”Vampire Academy”, ”House of Night”, and ”Drake Chronicles” it is really confusing to remember the stories.

Shadow Fall series is about Kylie Galen  who was sent to a supernatural school where she encounters all supernatural characters like fairies, were wolves, vampires, shape shifters and witches. But she is unable to find out what she is even though she has this ghost whispering powers and some  unknown special powers she can’t decide what she is. In the 3rd book Lucas is back and Kylie is about to fall for him but she learns that his pack is not happy with it. Even though she let go of  Derek there is something which is troubling her while looking his way. Now that Kylie knows who is  her real father, she is searching for real grandparents so that she can know where did her powers come from and do her kind have a name?

It is a good read, but you can only understand the story if you have read  the other two books in the series. My rating: 3 out of 5.

Untamed Untamed is the fourth installment in the popular House of Night YA fantasy series by P.C & Kristin Cast. After reading 3rd book in the series  ”Chosen” I was not sure weather I liked the series anymore. But ”Untamed” was interesting read.

Zoey Redbird’s friends are pissed at her, in one week she has gone from having three boyfriends to having none. With the brutal murders of two important vampire teachers, The House of Night has upped it’s security. But Zoey is not safe, dark evil is slowly raising it’s head. Neferet is playing a dangerous game and has decided to raise an ancient demon. There’s a new powerful fledgling in The House of Night: James Stark who Zoey Redbird immediately forms a connection with. But while going through change he dies! Eric is back but he gives her silent treatment for cheating on him. This book is full of suspense and it is the best installment compared to first 3 books in the series.

It is a good story but few things are repeated.  For example vocabulary lessons from Damien, dressing style of ”Twins” and they are not really related but how they are ”Twins” and how grandmother  calls Zoey the Cherokee word for daughter and how  the word makes her feel safe. People who are reading series will get bored becuase they have read it hundred times before reaching the 4th book. My rating: 2 out of 5. I wanted to give 3 for the interesting story but then looking at the writing style and repeated explanation I gave 2.

Awake at Dawn There are like 9 books to review in my ”read” list and I am too lazy to write reviews. ”Born at midnight” is the first book in Shadow Fall series which I totally liked and rated with  4 stars. ” Awake at Dawn” is also a wonderful book about supernatural creatures. Not only vampires and werewolves but also fairies, shape sifters and witches are part of this Shadow fall series and that makes  it different and interesting.

Kylie Galen is trying to fit in the school of supernaturals, there are vampires, werewolves, shape-shifters, fairies and witches, but Kylie is still trying to figure out who is she and where is belongs? She drinks blood and likes it a lot, everyone thinks she is vampire and going to change soon. But that never happens. She suddenly gets physically strong and emotional, everyone thinks she is about to change into a were wolf and that never happens either. But other that identity issues she has got boy friends issues. She was strongly attracted to Lucas, a hot were wolf but one day  he ran off the campus with a she wolf  but still wrote letters to Kylie saying he loves her! There is Derek, a sexy half Fae who’s always been there for her when she needed him, and now he is pushing her to get serious with him. She can’t decide cause she can still feel that attraction for Lucas. Its like relationship ship roller coaster  everywhere. She can’t forgive her step father for what he has done, and her human best friend seems changed and uncertain about their friendship. As she has this ghost whisperer power she is daily encountered by ghosts. But there is something dark lurking in shadow falls which is dangerous. Not to forget that Lucas is back and Derek is restless.

My rating: 4 out of 5. These supernatural books are driving me crazy. I always get confused with the story line of Vampire Academy, Vampire Dairies, Shadow fall series, House of night series, Drake Chronicles. Oh my God! so many series to read. I think there are more, but right now I can’t remember names.
