Awake at Dawn is the second in C.C. Hunter's Shadow Falls series. I loved this book! I thought the story was compelling and different than the average YA fantasy novel. I enjoyed the twists and turns in the story line and the back-story of romance. I like that the protagonist chooses not to focus on romance. It allows the reader to focus on the plot as well. I LOVE that the plot is not the romance!! There's an actual story here, people!
My only gripe is that it took me a wee bit longer than I would have liked to get used to the southern phrases like "darn it." I'm from the East Coast, people just cuss here. We don't use childish phrases like that. After I read the first book, Born at Midnight (review coming), I read about the author and realized why those phrases were in there.
Future readers of this series should prepare for all species of the supernatural. Prepare for a look into what that life as a supernatural would be like. And get ready for a beautiful look into self-exploration. Because supernatural or not, protagonist Kylie Galen is a young woman getting to know more about herself, her past, and who she will become.
