Born At Midnight Review


One night Kylie Galen finds herself at the wrong party, with the wrong people, and it changes her life forever.  Her mother ships her off to Shadow Falls—a camp for troubled teens, and within hours of arriving, it becomes painfully clear that her fellow campers aren’t just “troubled.”  Here at Shadow Falls, vampires, werewolves, shapshifters, witches and fairies train side by side—learning to harness their powers, control their magic and live in the normal world.
Kylie’s never felt normal, but surely she doesn’t belong here with a bunch of paranormal freaks either.  Or does she?  They insist Kylie is one of them, and that she was brought here for a reason.  As if life wasn’t complicated enough, enter Derek and Lucas.  Derek’s a half-fae who’s determined to be her boyfriend, and Lucas is a smokin’ hot werewolf with whom Kylie shares a secret past.  Both Derek and Lucas couldn’t be more different, but they both have a powerful hold on her heart. Even though Kylie feels deeply uncertain about everything, one thing is becoming painfully clear—Shadow Falls is exactly where she belongs…

This took me probably about 2 weeks to read lol. It's pretty good, but I wasn't reading it every chance I got, I think it's because I read Touch of Power by Maria V. Snyder at the same time I fell in love with it, so it was hard to go back and forth to this one. I found Kylie kind of hard to connect to, and she was a bit annoying. Instead of having a thought and moving on, it felt like it took a whole page or two dissecting every little thing a guy did, what he said, etc. Like get over it already.  It was also a bit frustrating how she couldn't just accept she's a paranormal, drove me a bit nuts. 

Other than that though, it had a good pace and didn't waver from the main story too much. A few "big things" happen, but not really too much. I got excited a few times but I never really got pulled in like I wanted to. I think I'm still gonna buy Awake At Dawn, though, to see where things have gone from here. Could have been a little faster paced, but it was pretty good.


  1. Hi Jessica -
    I found your blog from Book Blogs and thought I'd hop on over and check it out. I felt pretty much the same way you did about Born at Midnight. I haven't even picked up Awake at Dawn yet, haven't decided if I want to read it. Anyway, your blog is fun, and I'm a new follower!
