Vampires, Werewolves, and Fairies, Oh My!: A Review of “Born at Midnight”

Hello readers, and welcome back to Sabrina’s Book Corner! This week we will be talking about Born at Midnight by C.C. Hunter.

Kylie Galen is shipped off to a camp for troubled teenagers for the summer. Soon after she arrives, it becomes clear that Kylie has a very different definition of “troubled” from the campers at Shadow Falls. Because “troubled,” for them, means supernatural.

Vampires, werewolves, shapeshifters, and fairies who find it difficult to hide their powers in the human world make up the cast at Shadow Falls. While Kylie has never felt normal, she definitely doesn’t belong at a camp for troubled supernaturals, but everyone insists that she is one of them, even if they can’t figure out what kind of supernatural being she is.

Of course, then enters more trouble in the form of Derek, a half-fae who makes Kylie’s life feel normal again, and Lucas, who is really familiar, but doesn’t seem interested in sharing how he and Kylie may know each other. With her life falling apart and Shadow Falls coming under attack, Kylie finds that she might just be right where she belongs.

C.C. Hunter weaves together a fast-paced supernatural story with a couple of interesting twists, too. Born at Midnight is a fun and fast read for any fan of the supernatural.

That’s all for this week, and as always, happy reading!
