Shadow Falls: The Beginning

SFBeginningToday is release day for Shadow Falls: The Beginning! That’s one book containing both Born at Midnight and Awake at Dawn. Now, most of you have already read those books, but this book is a wonderful way to introduce your friends to my series.

Born At Midnight

Kylie Galen has had a lot of crap tossed in her lap lately. Her parents are getting a divorce for who the heck knows why. Her boyfriend broke up with her because she wouldn’t put out. And her grandmother died because . . . well, older people do that. But now, Kylie’s acquired a stalker and she hasn’t a clue what he wants or how to get rid of him . . . and she really wants to get rid of him because apparently she’s the only one who sees him. Thinking she may be losing it, her parents send her off to see a psychologist who gets Kylie sent to Shadow Falls Camp. Kylie and her parents think it’s a camp for troubled teens.

They thought wrong.

Kylie’s surrounded by vampires, werewolves, fairies, witches and shapeshifters. And if she believes what they tell her, she’s one of them. They’re just not sure exactly how she fits in. As Kylie struggles to cope with the realization that these creatures even exist, and the fact that she might not be human, she’s got two hot guys, a werewolf and a half-fairy vying for her attention. And they can just keep vying. Kylie’s determined that before she lets her heart loose on love, she needs to unearth the truth. What does the ghost want? Who can and can’t she trust? And most of all . . . What is she?

Awake at Dawn

Kylie Galen thought her life was a mess before she went to Shadow Falls Camp. However, now that she’s discovered she’s not human, the problems presenting themselves are anything but normal.

She’s determined to uncover the answer to her supernatural heritage, but with a ghost insisting someone Kylie loves is about to die, her newly developed sixth sense telling her someone is watching her and a rogue vampire on a murdering rampage, Kylie’s quest for answers is on hold. As if her life isn’t difficult enough, just when she’s about to give her heart to Derek, he starts pulling away. When Lucas comes back, Kylie feels more conflicted than ever. Kylie’s weekend with her mom should have been just the break Kylie needs, but it turns out to be her breaking point. Discovering her heritage may not ever matter if she doesn’t survive.

Shadow Falls: The Beginning is now available at Amazon and Barnes and Noble for one low price. But to celebrate the release, I’m giving away THREE copies of Shadow Falls: The Beginning to three people who leave a comment. (Sorry, but this giveaway is limited to U.S. residents only.)

  2. Awesome!
    I am loving the cover…..heck I love all your covers they are what I like to call bookshelf art 🙂

    This book would be a fantastic gift for my “adopted :p ” niece she is always looking for a new book to devour in one day lol.
    More than likey I will be buying it for myself as well I have it on ebook format but nothing beats the feel and smell of a book!

  3. I love your books. I plan on buying a copy of this one just so that I can add it to my collection. I have already pre-ordered Saved at Sunrise and Chosen at Nightfall. I can’t wait for them to come out. I love you and your books!!

  4. So excited. That means that I can have the first 2 books in one and make it easier for me to read through both of them and leave time to do college stuff plus go to work! Thank you so much. And I am maybe going (if work schedule lets me) to one of the tours in houston area! 🙂
    Have a nice day y’all.

  5. The first time I picked up the first book of this series from the library I could not put it down. I had to go back and check out each one as soon as I was finished with the last. I would love to own each and every one of the books in the series and I will one day, so I can read them over and over again which is good for some one that use to have trouble reading in school. My teachers told my parents to help my reading to get me books I loved to read to help me and by reading books like yours they do. Thank you

  6. I just love this series!! I have already read the books twice since I’ve gotten then and I’m probably going to read them again since there is a new one coming out!! So excited for it!

  7. Hi C.C. once again I hope you’re having a wonderful week. Everytime I see limited to U.S. residents only I think “yay I live in the U.S.”. Anyway I would very much love to have a new copy of The Beginning, and I always get tickled when I read the title. The Beginning seems so ominous, its good though and I could totally see a two part book deal on a short story and the last book simply called The Finally. Till next time, yours truely.

  8. I love your books! My best friend in the world does too, and so I’m entering this for her since she doesn’t own the books! You’re awesome!

  9. Hello um, so I love your books and I’m doing this thing for school and I need to collect data for it, your my favorite author and I was wondering if you would answer this small question which is… What is your favorite type of book,

    It’s for my math project and it would be awesome if voted too. 🙂

  10. Hi, Ive been a fan of your books since i picked up the very first one at a library. I was simply browsing the shelves when the cover immediately captured my eye, and i feel in love with the short synopsis on the back. I then proceeded to read all the books out in a matter of days. I am already counting down the days until the release of the finale. I love your books so much!

    Love Destiny

  25. Hi cc! Cant wait until the saved at sunset comes! It comes out 3 days before my bday so it will be an early gift! Also cant wait till chosen at nightfall comes out!!

  26. I was so upset because March 5 is my birthday, and I told my mom that I wanted Shadow Falls: The Beginning, but I didn’t get it. Granted I got the other books that I had told my friends I wanted, but I really wanted Shadow Falls: The Beggining. Then I thought well some one will give me money then I can buy it. I thought wrong. Nobody gave me money because they thought that it was too impersonal. The one thing that I had really hoped to get for my sweet 16 was the one thing that I didn’t get!

  27. I love reading!!! I typically go through a book in a day which doesn’t work out very well for me!! Lol!! I keep having to go back to the library or download new books on my Kindle Fire!! My favorite books, by far, are your Shadow Falls series. Whenever I start reading one of them, I can’t put it down until I’ve read the whole thing! I just keep rereading the series over and over until the next book comes out!!!! It never gets old!!! I’d love to have a copy of Shadow Falls: the beginning!! Two books in one!! Awesome!!

  28. I get more and more excited everyday waiting for the next book in the series to come out! I have a playlist i listen to while reading your books, and one song i associate with them, and whenever i hear it i long to read your books and get excited to read the next one! I talk about it constantly, my friends are probably starting to get annoyed. And i’m trying to convince them to read them with me! They’re so close to reading, I’ve certainly intrigued them. 😉

  29. I am so excited for the new book!! Can’t wait to read it! This is what I’m probably going to be reading once it comes out instead of studying for my finals. Thank you C.C. Hunter for writing these book! I keep recommending them to my friends.

  30. Ah. ohmai. I love the covers so much. and i cannot imagine how thick it would be :’D so yeah basically, i love this series so much. and i have to finish it before my upcoming exam!! cannot wait for the fifth book too~

    Auntie, I sent you an email! :))

  33. I absolutely loved Born at Midnight and didn’t receive the pleasure to finish reading the series! I have not been able to find any of the other books in my area except for the last book. So far I have the first and the last book! I would love to have this to add to my collection! Thank you for this opportunity and chance! I have thought you writing is AmAzInG!! <3

  34. I read the first 4 books in 3.5 days and am beyond excited for April 23rd!! I got a few more people hooked on them too because I couldn’t stop talking about them! Ahh!! Is it April yet?!?

  35. I’m so excited for the last book..!! i swear that when I read what Lucas had done to Kylie, I literally almost had a fainting moment. I am so intrigued to find out what happens next :)) Thanks for being such an awesome author and for helping people distress with life and dig into an awesome world of irresistible supernatural beings :))
    P.S. I have already pre-ordered the last book 🙂


  37. I love Born at Midnight but I love Awake at Dawn more because in that book Kylie and Derek look a lot more like a couple and they are PERFECT for each other 🙂

  38. I love it!! This past summer, I was re-reading your series and stupidly took my copy of Born At Midnight to the pool with me. My husband decided to cannonball… My copy got soaked! lol. I’d love a new copy and one that contains the first two would be twice as fabulous!! Thank you for the opportunity to win a copy of your new double-book with the gorgeous cover!!

    My friends have all loved your books when I recommend them!

  39. LOVE LOVE LOVE this series!!! Really hoping i get to go to your book signing on the 28th in Dallas (thats my bday, btw)

  40. Yay yay yay yay yay yay yay yay yay yay yay yay yay yay yay yay yay yay yay yay! The first two books are the only ones I dont have cause I borrowed them for my friend when I read them. I’m super excited. Now to convince my dad to drive me to the bookstore…Then ONTO NARNIA!!!!! sorry, I had some chocolate…

  41. I can’t wait for the new book!!!!! I really would love it if I won this!!! But if somebody else does it’s fine with me, because they will be happy. I love your work! Kepp up the GREAT work C.C!!;)<3

  42. Hey CC!!!!! I dont know of anyone has asked u this l8ly, but seriousy, HOW ARE YOU?? you probably are under a lot of stress from your book coming out! Will kylie ever shapeshift?? Because she hasnt yet

  43. I checked out Born at Midnight at my library and loved it! I can’t wait to read Awake at Dawn especially if I could have my own copy.

  44. I am so happy for u!! I wish i could be as succesful of an author as you! Thanks for the chance to win the book!

  45. OMG!!!! I can’t wait until chosen at nightfall comes out, I’m sooooooo excited.You write the greatest books. i finished one three book series in two weeks. i’m so bored and can’t wait for chosen at nightfall to come out.

    • believe me, I felt the same thing when I finished reading Whispers at Moonrise. Now and then, I would think about it, and sometimes I get as desperate as you do.

  46. When i first got your books i was like “well i should start it now i guess” then i finished reading the 4 books in 2DAYS! I am crazy obsessed with your books and i think the rest of the fans are 2! 🙂 Hope i win the Beginning so i can have the whole series because i already pre-ordered Saved at Sunset and Chosen at Nightfall!

  47. All Good Things…

    We’re just weeks away from the release of the final Shadow Falls novel and what a ride it’s been. The laughter, the heartache, the joys, the romance, the angst – well, if it has to end, it’s been a great journey. Thanks for a wonderful series!
    P.S. Hopefully Chosen at Nightfall gets me off the fence and I’ll finally choose Team Lucas or Team Derek!

  48. I just bought this book today and I am so excited to start this series! Was wondering if the other books will become 2 in 1 books as well?

  49. When I got the last book in the shadow falls series I was devastated that I wouldn’t be able to find out what HAPPEND ON THE TRIP kylie and lucas would take to Dallas , Texes and what happened to the cute shapeshifrter and della tang. What I’m trying to say is saying good bye to the best book I’ve ever read in my life is like saying I just got put in a coma for thirteen years. In the mean time when you write another novel be sure to make it best seller just like the shadow falls series!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
