Summary (from Goodreads):

Step into Shadow Falls, a camp for teens with supernatural powers.  Here friendship thrives, love takes you by surprise, and our hearts possess the greatest magic of all.

Kylie Galen wants the truth so badly she can taste it. The truth about who her real family is, the truth about which boy she’s meant to be with—and the truth about what her emerging powers mean.  But she’s about to discover that some secrets can change your life forever…and not always for the better.

Just when she and Lucas are finally getting close, she learns that his pack has forbidden them from being together.  Was it a mistake to pick him over Derek? And it’s not just romance troubling Kylie. An amnesia-stricken ghost is haunting her, delivering the frightful warning, someone lives and someone dies. As Kylie races to unravel the mystery and protect those she loves, she finally unlocks the truth about her supernatural identity, which is far different—and more astonishing—than she ever imagined.

The third installment of Hunter's Shadow Falls Series is another brilliant and fantastic read! This is honestly the best book in the series ... so far.
The plot is not mainly focused on the main character - which is great since the first and second book of the series was mainly about Kylie. In this book, I actually got a taste of Della and Miranda's relationship and guess what? I am satisfied. The romance and love triangles are still present in the book but actually, for the first time, I'm not annoyed and disgusted. I can't believe I am saying this but I am hoping for more love in the next book. The adventures and conflicts were also great! The twists and turns were not vague and the story flow was nice and steady in a good way. Throughout the book, I was mad, happy, surprised and jumpy. Most of the scenes and moments in this book made me feel a lot of emotions.
The weird thing is, I can't help but feel one negativity for this book. The plot is always repeating. Another ghost came into Kylie's life. Another ghost. I get the fact that there a lot of ghosts out there but I think Hunter needs to realize that another conflict (not a problematic ghost, maybe?) is essential because if you actually keep repeating the conflict and problem in the series, you wont' actually enjoy it. That is all.
The positives beat the negatives. Yay! All in all, this book was a blast! I can't wait to read the next installment, Whispers at Moonrise, soon. I hope the next book could surprise me.
