Summary: (From Goodreads)
Don’t miss this spectacular new series that will steal your heart and haunt your dreams, Welcome to Shadow Falls camp, nestled deep in the woods of a town called Fallen…

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…

The Story:
This book is about a young girl named Kylie. She is going through some hard time. Breaking up with her boyfriend, her parents getting divorced and growing apart from her best friend.
And suddenly on top of everything she is being sent away for a summer camp.
Which turns out not to be an ordinary camp.
She learns so much and meet so many people. She didn´t even know existed before now. And suddenly she is one of them. But who are she? Will she find out the inner truth about herself.

My Opinion:
OMG. I loved this book. I was hooked from page 1. :)
This was something different. Which made me blow away. Or none less new to me. Never read about a summer camp full of paranormal creatures.
The story also have the classic triangle love story. Which I most of the time loves. In this book it was so good. I got frustrated sometimes xD
And not to mention the hot werewolf. Which should be a must in every story :P haha
What more can I say. It was interesting following Kylie on her trip to find out the real truth about herself. etc.
So I give this book 6 out of 6 stars.
And just waiting impatiently for the next book :)
