Gabrielle's 5 ***** Review:
I started reading C.C Hunter's books back when Kylie first started at Shadow Falls and was a total misfit. But then she met her two best friends: Della and Miranda. They were a balanced trio, always keeping each other in line.
I was SO excited to finally get into Miranda's head. Her and her pinky swingy head. :D The book starts out with Miranda and Tabitha (sisters) going to a cabin to get their fortunes told because Tabitha wants to know if what she has with her boyfriend is real. But things go to hell before they can find anything out. The building explodes and they barely get out with their lives.
Tabitha's boyfriend keeps looking guiltier and guiltier as the book goes on but Tabitha insists he's innocent. Miranda tries to take her sister's side but when the evidence builds up more, Miranda is starting to think maybe Tabitha's blinded by love and that maybe Anthony is guilty.
Then, there's a point of view for Perry. He found his family and is trying to find evidence to bring their gang down but not everyone trusts him so they keep a close eye on him.
In the middle of everything Miranda is trying to figure out if she wants to stay with Shawn (her new boyfriend) or go back with Perry (Does he deserve her after everything he put her through?) But I kinda started to dislike Shawn because he doesn't always seem to be too loyal.
Tabitha disappears and they can't figure out if she's kidnapped or if she left on her own free will. But the longer they take the more danger they could be putting her in... Especially when there are gangs out there willing to kill anyone in their path to have both the sisters.
I am sad Miranda only gets one book but C.C Hunter made this book worth it. I couldn't stop reading it. I needed to know where Tabitha was and why she was missing. Miranda really stepped up to the plate and gave her all to get her sister back which I think is awesome. It gives young girls someone to look up to because Miranda isn't normally the type to stand up and do whatever it takes. It shows anyone can do it and not just the tough ones like Della.
I'm sad Shadow Falls is over but this was a great conclusion! Definitely a 5 star read for me. I can't wait for more from C.C Hunter. (Even though it won't be more Shadow Falls!)
There are two series before this book (but you can read it as a standalone):
Shadow Falls series AND Shadow Falls: After Dark! Check those out if you haven't yet.
