Taken at Dusk by C.C. Hunter
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Publisher: St. Martin's Press
Date Published: April 10th 2012
Genre: Young Adult Paranormal (Romance?)
Mixed feelings about this book. I mean, on one hand, you finally find out what the hell Kylie is. But on the other, it's taken so damn long to find out and everything in her life is a mess.
Now some people like messes. They can fun to read about. But Kylie's messes seem to be never-ending. It grows tiresome. And a lot of them are totally insignificant.
Lucas's pack doesn't want them together, because she's definitely NOT a were. That puts pressure on their relationship. And Derek, well, she still seems to like him (I can't for the life of me understand why).
Overall, this book is kind of hectic. I like it, but I don't like all of it. And I don't understand Mr. Evil-Dude's fixation on Kylie. She hasn't really done anything to warrant a join-us-or-die situation. It's a little confusing.
I guess if you've read the first two books then go ahead and read this book (though I'd borrow it from the library or a friend, I wouldn't buy it). See what you think.

Step into Shadow Falls, a camp for teens with supernatural powers. Here friendship thrives, love takes you by surprise, and our hearts possess the greatest magic of all.
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.
