Taken at Dusk (Shadow Falls #3) by C.C. Hunter

Book Summery (Via Goodreads): Kylie Galen wants the truth so badly she can taste it. The truth about who her real family is, the truth about which boy she’s meant to be with—and the truth about what her emerging powers mean. But she’s about to discover that some secrets can change your life forever…and not always for the better.

Just when she and Lucas are finally getting close, she learns that his pack has forbidden them from being together. Was it a mistake to pick him over Derek? And it’s not just romance troubling Kylie. An amnesia-stricken ghost is haunting her, delivering the frightful warning, someone lives and someone dies. As Kylie races to unravel the mystery and protect those she loves, she finally unlocks the truth about her supernatural identity, which is far different—and more astonishing—than she ever imagined.

Book Review:
Ok, I'll be honest. I fell in love with the series from the first page of the first book. This book is no exception. In Taken at Dusk, we learn more about Kylie and her supernatural abilities. Also, things between her and Lucas heat up. I love that Hunter incorporates the supporting characters well into the story as well. I have grown found of them all. I felt like this book was more about self-discovery for Kiley. The interactions with the "evil" characters felt rushed and were rather brief. Other than that, I really enjoyed this installment of the Shadow Falls series.For some reason, I thought this was a trilogy. I am sooooo happy to discover that this is an on-going series. I can't find anything that says "there will be x number of books," but the series does not seem to stop in the next book that is due to be released. Ok, I'm a geek, I admit it. Anyways, I highly recommend this series, especially if you like paranormal YA. :)

Favorite Quote:
“Wow," Miranda said, "You'd better be careful Della. In the last few days, I think you've used up your vampire quota of apologies for the next ten years." 

Cover Art Commentary:
I wasn't a fan of the series' covers (pictured below) at first, but I have fallen in love with them. They all look gorgeous together don't they?
