Chosen at Nightfall by C.C. Hunter




Book Summery (Via Goodreads): Don’t miss this magnificent final chapter in the breathtaking Shadow Falls series! Kylie’s epic journey is about to lead her exactly where she belongs...
When Kylie Galen entered Shadow Falls Camp, she left her old life behind forever and discovered a world more magical than she ever imagined. A place where you’re two best friends can be a witch and a vampire... and where love doesn’t happen the way you’d expect.
When Kylie’s most powerful enemy returns to destroy her once and for all, there’s only one way to stop him—to step into her full powers and make a stunning transformation that will amaze everyone around her. But her journey won’t be complete until she makes one final choice…which guy to love. Should she choose to the werewolf who broke her heart but will give anything to win her back, or the half-fae who ran from their attraction before they had a chance? Everything she’s learned at Shadow Falls has been preparing her for this moment - when her fate will be revealed and her heart claimed forever.

Book Review:
Ok, I'm just going to come out and say it...this is probably the weakest book in the series. I have really enjoyed the Shadow Falls series, but let's be honest, it's fluff...sexy, supernatural fluff. That's what I love about this series! I picked up this book with gusto, ready to get lost in a good paranormal romance story. However, what I got was a lot of introspection and chatty dialog. There was very little action (romantic or otherwise), and the pacing was a bit problematic. There's usually a good "showdown" towards the end of each book, and I was a little disappointed this time around. Like I mentioned, I read a lot about Kylie's thoughts, feelings, and insecurities. I would have rather been reading about steamy romances and supernatural showdowns. Also, the love triangle was very predictable. I did enjoy learning more about Kylie's supernatural abilities and the ghost story arc was really interesting. Ultimately, I was a bit underwhelmed. I noticed at the end of the book that Hunter is writing a spin off series based on one of the supporting characters from this series. I'd be interested in checking it out.

Favorite Quote:
“Oh, I brought you something." Her mom pulled a bag from her purse. "I know how you like T-shirts," she said.

Kylie couldn't help but think, My mom went to England and all I got was a T-shirt, but she smiled and pulled it out of the bag and then chuckled when she read the script across the front: My mom went to England and all I got was this T-shirt.

"Perfect," Kylie said.” 

Cover Art Commentary:
Quite possibly my favorite cover in the series! I love the colors and the water has significant meaning!
