If you look under "entertaining" in the dictionary, you'll find Born At Midnight printed in big letters. The idea of a supernatural teen camp is so intriguing and Hunter definitely follows through with her brilliant concept. You'll fall in love with the characters and their abilities so...come join me as a big swooning mess?
Kylie's parents are divorcing, her jerk boyfriend's dumped her for someone else and she has a crazy stalker no one else can see. Things can't get any worse, right? After being caught at an unsupervised party, Kylie's therapist tells her mother to send her to a "camp for delinquents". I think we all know what comes next. Kylie begins an exciting journey at Shadow Falls Camp, learning more about herself than she ever would've thought possible. This will be just as much a learning experience for readers as it will be for Kylie. You'll have the time of your life and wish you were a little wrong in the head yourself!
Kylie is a brilliant narrator. She's hilarious in typical teenage fashion. She forms lasting friendships, has issues with her parents (but rightfully so!) and meets two boys she just can't resist. They're both amazing in their own way and I honestly can't decide between them. I can't imagine how Kylie will! Pick a name from a hat? Eenie meenie miney mo? Close her eyes and point? I'm dreading decision time! Derek is the sweetest and most persistent half-fae on the planet and Lucas is a seductive werewolf with an undeniable soft spot for Kylie. Lucas' past with Kylie is quite shocking but you'll have fun peeling back his layers and seeing what's really underneath!
The mythology and mystery in this book are great. All of the students have a unique ability and all were born at midnight. *ghost noises* Shadow Falls Camp was originally formed so that the different races could learn to cooperate with each other. I loved seeing them all interact, sometimes as best friends and sometimes as enemies… Old habits die hard! What's my favourite character, you ask? Perry, the most talented and obnoxiously flirtatious shapeshifter in the world. He turns into a unicorn…he turns into a cute kitten to cuddle up to Kylie's breasts…need I go on?
The ending of Born At Midnight left me with so much hope. The sequel will be amazing, thanks to some interesting developments, and I can't wait to explore! The friendships are heartwarming, the mysteries slightly bloodcurdling, the romance smoking and the plot magical. What else could you possibly want or need?!
Was this a fantastic book or what? Cannot wait to get my hands on the sequel! I know it's out in America already...Australian date is pending...
