Whispers at Moonrise!

It’s here! The big day is FINALLY here! You know what I’m talking about. It is release day for Whispers at Moonrise. Thanks for waiting so patiently for this day. But you don’t have to wait any longer.

So what happens in Whispers at Moonrise? Those of you who follow me on Facebook and Twitter have been getting my list of things you’ll learn in Whispers at Moonrise, but I’ll post it here for those who haven’t seen it.

1. Kicking your boyfriend’s father’s butt might not be good for the relationship.
2. Sometimes following your heart means breaking some rules.
3. Getting trapped in a grave with three dead girls is not a walk in the park.
4. Your parents breaking up sucks. Your mom having a boyfriend, and kissing him in front of you, sucks BIG TIME.
5. When your boyfriend says one thing, but does another, what do you believe? His actions or his words?
6. You can’t always protect the ones you love. Sometimes the only way to protect them is to tell them the truth—even if it hurts.
7. When you are in love, you usually want to talk a lot more about your boyfriend than your girlfriends care to hear.
8. You shouldn’t mess with magic if you don’t know what you’re doing. Especially when someone could end up sterile.
9. Sometimes it is the little choices we make, and not the big ones, that define who we are.
10. Be careful what you wish for or you might end up turning a bright shade of red in the boys’ bathroom.

Okay, but what about for those that know all that? Hmmm…looks like I may have to reveal a few more things.  Like Kylie learns that there is a bit of magic in all of us. And when someone is willing to kill for you, they just might not be the enemy you thought them to be. I could say more, but I think it would be better if you just read the book.

To celebrate the release of Whispers at Moonrise, I will be appearing at a number of places for signings and talks. So, here is my schedule, but keep in mind, I will probably be adding to this list. I will keep you updated on Facebook and Twitter. I hope many of you can attend. I’d LOVE to meet you!

And to cc: It’s ok to change your mind and add a extra book or two really I wouldn’t mind lol

  29. AHHHHH! I just got it. There was another book (history eww don’t know how it got there) in front of your books so i moved it. I am frantically reading. I love it! Thank you for being amazing!!!!

  30. I bought Whispers At Moonrise at Barnes & Noble today and I’ve started to read it. I’m only on page 10 and I’m already enjoying it.

  31. OMG I can’t wait to get my own copy!!!!!!! If I don’t get my grubby little hands on it this week, I’ll definitely be getting it next week. AHHHHHHH I’m sooooo EXCITED. I LOVE this series so much and I never want it to end!!!! But there is that one quote “All good things must come to an end” but we still have Chosen at Nightfall to come so I won’t be sad until then.

    Thanks for this giveaway!!!!!!!! and keep writing on!!!!

  32. I have the book preordered and I should get it by this weekend… I am so excited!!! this is one of my favorite series’ and i cant wait to find out what happens to everybody at shadow fall 🙂

  33. I LOVE your books….I started reading them based on a recommendation from a friend. I was skeptical at first being in the 40+ crowd. What possibly could I enjoy reading about a teenage girl? Ya know, been there done that?? LOL Kylie is a great character to follow…she is courageous and strong and firm in her convictions. I am soooo glad that I have read them all and will be picking up my copy of Whispers at Moonrise this weekend! I can’t wait for my daughter to get a little older so she can read them too!!

    • I have a lot of young readers, Kim, but I also have many “young at heart” readers, too! And I am right there with you in the “young at heart” category.

  34. Ohmygoodness. I LOVED it, pre-ordered it on my kindle and stayed up past 3 am finishing. Also bought it for my best friend’s little sister who I got to read the series. Love your books(:

  35. I bought it yesterday after work! And I stayed up way too late reading it! Can’t wait to get home from work today so I can continue reading!

  36. Second I got the book I read it all they way through! I feel with each new book I learn more about each character and become more attached to them! Now I have to wait for the next book 🙂 While I wait for the sadly last book 🙁 I will just have to reread the series again! Thank you CC for allowing me to escape my world even if it’s just for a little while !!!!

  37. YAYAYAYAYAYAYAYAYAYYYYY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    I haven’t done the pre-order so yea, im getting my mom to go to barnes and noble……
    but she can’t go until another week…..
    oh well i can wait
    So excited for whispers at moonrise!!!!!

  38. i should be getting mine tomorrow…. i preordered mine…. like in june…. lol…. i love all of your books and i hope you keeping writting….

  39. I have become a very big fan of this series!! I could not put it down from the moment I picked up the very first book. From that moment it has become my all time favorite series of all time. I have been pacing the floor waiting for my order of Whispers at Moonrise to arrive. Cant Wait!!!!

  40. so first off thank you ms. hunter for making me cry i was totally unprepared for that. next now that im finished with the book what do i do with the rest of my life? Grrr

  41. Oh my gosh it’s finally out! The timer says 0 seconds left! I have been waiting forever for this book and NOW IT’S HERE. Sorry for the caps but I’m excited.

    • Oh my gosh Mrs.Hunter I just read it and I can’t stop gasping! I NEVER EXPECTED KYLIE TO LEAVE. This is crazy. More out of control than the 2008 financial crisis. More unexpected than when Dumbledore dies in the Harry Potter series. CRAZY BUT SUCH AN AWESOME BOOK. I hate it and I love it.
      Oh my gosh.

  42. I was one of the people to win a Shadow Falls book!! I loved it!! I read in one day, I was that excited!!! Now I want to read Chosen at Nightfall REALLY badly!!!!!!

  43. I am soooo trying to get my mind off of whispers at moonrise cuz I preordered it and I don’t know when I’m gonna get but I told friends and family exept adults that if they touch my book when I get it I will rip off their hand and feed them to Mississippi and little black my cousins dog but when I get it that’s all I think about. But right now I’m reading four different books so I don’t obsess over it cause if I did id be pullin out my hair

    • ok I just found out my book was sent yesterday and the estimate date is the 10th hopefully before and I hope you all have a very scary halloween!! I am very into halloween my math teacher is making us do a project Math-O-Lanturns its fun!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Anyway those fans who already have the book I’m so JEALOUS!!!!!!! But its only fair 🙂 ok peace out girl scouts

  44. I bought Whispers at Moonrise yesterday and I just finished reading it today! I loved it so much! I was always Team Lucas, but I like Derek way more after finishing this book! I cannot wait until the next book comes out! It seems so long from now but I guess I just have to be patient. I’m sad that the series is coming to an end after Chosen at Nightfall comes out, but I now it will be epic!

    It would be awesome if CC would do a spinoff series, whoever Kylie doesn’t choose to be the one as a narrator! (:

  45. I love reading all of your comments. Thanks! I am busily working on “Chosen at Nightfall.” I will hate to see it end, but everything is getting wrapped up in this book. End, it will. Never fear, though, I already have a contract for my next YA series. It will have all the elements you loved in SF, friendships, loyalties, hot guys, laughter, and unforgettable characters.

    • There is no doubt in my mind that your next series will be amazing but it won’t be shadow falls. I’m going to miss kylie and derek maybe lucas but idk after reading whispers. I cannot wait to see your next series though. I love your writing C.C and I hope that I can get the rest of my friends to experience the beautiful mystery that is shadow falls. 🙂

      • the next series hopefully its as addicting as shadow falls. i dont want to see shadow falls end but things have to end like harry potter had to end twilight had to end and so did the matched book series in november it will. anyway i cried at the end whispers at moonrise just so sad and i guessed at what a chameleon was before it came out and i was right i am awsome

  46. I finished the book 2 days ago. I dont know how CC makes it feel like you are there. She must put a spell on the book. I am really sad that Lucas did that. But on the bright side WE KNOW WHAT KYLIE IS!! I hope CC makes more books after this series like, what Kylie does with her life. If she get married or not or has kids. Either way I LOVE theses books. I will be really sad to say goodbye. Thank you CC for wrighting the books.

  47. i preordered it and was so anxious to get it as soon as i got home. Unfortanatley i didnt realize u cant get it shipped to ur house the day the book comes out ( i was miss informed at barnes&noble when i preordered it). So after i called and they told me that i couldnt wait to get it in the mail in a few days I drove to barnes and noble and bought a copy, i couldnt wait anylonger to read it i was so excited all day and really disappointed when i got home. I stayed up till 3:30 a.m. reading the book and finally finished it. I’ve been rereading it everyday since i got it, and my second copy came in the mail today so now i have 2.

  48. OMG I totally cant wait to get it !!! I begged my mom so hard!!!! I re-read the books I have like 17 times!! C.C Hunter’s books blow me away!!! They are like sitting on the edge of you seat, reading until 3 o’clock in the morning amazing!!!! I CANNOT wait… These books set me for happiness all day!! 🙂 I do think you should make the series longer than 5 book though! I mean like some of your fans have no life with out reading your amazing books! *like me* You should totally pick me for a copy of the book…I would be so excited!And my sister never reads…NEVER! But thanks to your help i got her to read these books so make more than 5!! please!
    *Kayty the girl who loves your books Koch*

  49. I got my book today I’m takin a break from reading rite now but believe me ill finish tonight so far I can’t believe anything in it

  50. I just finished the book… i’m now crying far more than i should be… I love Derek and hope he gets Kylie because he deserves her! I like Lucas but…….. that thing…you know kinda gets in the way! Plus Kylie and Derek are perfect together. I can’t believe how much i am crying! I really hope Derek and Kylie will end up together, my heart is telling that they are meant to be. I love them together, ever since the beginning. Lucas i want to end up with Fredricka. Ahh! Kylie+Derek=4ever!! Fredricka+Lucas=4ever!! I am going to be heartbroken if it ends differently. Plus i need Della to get a Bf. I love her!

  51. I just finished reading whispers at moonrise. I cried so many times but mainly at the end. I can’t believe that happened. I cannot wait for chosen at nightfall because I have to know what happens next. I also found out that the bookstores don’t like it when you buy a book woth nothing but change lol. I had to have whispers though I think I counted change for a solid hour lol. But I loved the book and id gladly do it again 🙂

  52. I’m so excited about this book, OMG!! But I’ve to wait until the end of october to read it because I bought it in amazon and I live in Brazil…I dont even know if there’s a release date for brazil yet…but I’m happy that in a few days I’ll read it, can’t wait!! Thanks so much for writting, you’re awesome CC.!! Team Lucas XxxX

  53. I literally just discovered your series yesterday and I can’t wait to read them. I found you through your guest blog post on Writer’s Digest which led me to your books. I downloaded your short story Turned at Dark and loved it! I’m reading your books immediately! I’m glad that I didn’t have to wait for the release of the newest book – it’ll be out by the time I get to it. Would be even better to win it 🙂

  54. My favorite character? Man, that’s really hard. I like both Miranda and Della equally, and Holiday and Burnett too. Maybe Miranda, if I had to choose one. I just love her kind and fun nature! (:
