Goodreads.com Description: “Return to the beloved world of Shadow Falls, a camp that teaches supernatural teens to harness their powers—and where a vampire named Della will discover who she’s meant to be.

For Della Tsang, Shadow Falls isn’t just a camp: it’s home. As a vampire who’s never fit in with her human family, it’s the one place she can truly be herself. But when a mysterious new guy arrives at camp, Della’s whole world is thrown into turmoil. Chase is a vampire with secrets, who knows more than he’s telling. But the more time she spends with him, the more she begins to trust this attractive stranger—and feel drawn to him. But romance is the last thing she wants—as she keeps telling Steve, the hunky shapeshifter who won’t stop trying to win her heart. And if Della isn’t careful, he just might succeed.  When a new case puts everyone she cares about in danger, Della’s determined to do everything she can to save them . . . even if it means teaming up with Steve and Chase, who leave her more confused than ever. With their lives on the line, will Della and her friends survive—with their hearts intact?”

About the Author:

C.C. Hunter grew up in Alabama, where she caught lightning bugs, ran barefoot, and regularly rescued potential princes, in the form of Alabama bullfrogs, from her brothers. Today, she’s still fascinated with lightning bugs, mostly wears shoes, but has turned her focus to rescuing mammals. She now lives in Texas with her four rescued cats, one dog, and a prince of a husband, who for the record, is so not a frog. When she’s not writing, she’s reading, spending time with her family, or is shooting things-with a camera, not a gun.

C.C. Hunter is a pseudonym. Her real name is Christie Craig and she also writes humorous romantic suspense romance novels for Grand Central. www.christie-craig.com

C.C. would love to hear from you. Because of deadlines, it may take her a day or so to get back with you, but she will reply. cc@cchunterbooks.com.

My Review:

I loved reading C.C. Hunter’s Shadow Falls After Dark: Reborn. This time I got to learn more about Shadow Falls resident Della Tsang, the mixed race vampire.

Once again I was delighted with a well-written story that has an intriguing plot mixed with a good dose of humor. I actually found myself liking the tough as nails Della. The young vamp is hiding a world of pain behind a tough shell. Hunter introduced new characters for readers to love, Jenny and Chase. Jenny is another chameleon who reminds me of a young Kylie. Chase is a drop dead handsome vamp who comes to camp and disrupts Della’s life. Throughout the book I routed for Team Chase simply because he had a better understanding of Della. But, Steve has no qualms or conditions for liking Della which is always a great thing for her.

I was happy to meet up with many of my favorite characters in Reborn especially Burnett and Holiday. Theirs is a very special relationship which definitely challenges the headstrong vampire.

The only thing I wasn’t happy with in this book was it left questions at the end. Fortunately, I have the sequel to Della’s story. I have a feeling Hunter will finally let readers know why her father is so distant to the young vamp.

    • I’m glad you liked the review. I’ve enjoyed C.C. Hunter’s books. They are interesting with just the right amount of humor. They’re like a palate cleanser after reading something heavy or really dark.
