Born at Midnight is one of the books that can be chosen for the 2011 Debut Author Challenge hosted by Kristi at TheStorySiren.com.
I know I’ve already read and reviewed this book, but this is definitely a book to look for on March 29th and so I’ve chosen it for this week’s “Book Watch” post. Although I had a review copy of this book, I have this on pre-order so I can have the final version for my eBook collection.
This is the first book in a new series, so there will be a lot of adventures to come and mysteries to solve. Each chapter ends with a mini cliffhanger so you have to keep flipping those pages or you will be left hanging.
As this takes place, for the most part, at a paranormal camp, there are a wide variety of paranormal characters with differing abilities. And as there are two love interests, you will have to choose which boy is right for Kylie. I’m definitely thinking Lucas, but who knows what will happen in book two.
I love the cover for this book. It’s dark, mysterious, beautiful and purple.
The second book in the series, Awake at Dawn, will be out in October, so the wait won’t be too long. And a prequel novella, Turned at Dark, will be released before Born at Midnight, on March 15th. (This may be a new release date for the novella.)
I am definitely looking forward to reading the final version when it comes out at the end of the month.

One night Kylie Galen finds herself at the wrong party, with the wrong people, and it changes her life forever. Her mother ships her off to Shadow Falls—a camp for troubled teens, and within hours of arriving, it becomes painfully clear that her fellow campers aren’t just “troubled.” Here at Shadow Falls, vampires, werewolves, shapeshifters, witches and fairies train side by side—learning to harness their powers, control their magic and live in the normal world.
Kylie’s never felt normal, but surely she doesn’t belong here with a bunch of paranormal freaks either. Or does she? They insist Kylie is one of them, and that she was brought here for a reason. As if life wasn’t complicated enough, enter Derek and Lucas. Derek’s a half-fae who’s determined to be her boyfriend, and Lucas is a smokin’ hot werewolf with whom Kylie shares a secret past. Both Derek and Lucas couldn’t be more different, but they both have a powerful hold on her heart.
Even though Kylie feels deeply uncertain about everything, one thing is becoming painfully clear—Shadow Falls is exactly where she belongs…
