Turned at Dark is a bonus Shadow Falls short story
Independent and strong-willed Della Tsang did not believe in ghosts, until she sees her dead cousin in a dark alley. She did not believe in vampires, until she turns into one. Should she follow her vampire cousin’s lead and walk away from everything she knows, or join Shadow Falls, a camp for special teens.

My Review
The Shadow Falls series is one of my all time favourite series, I'm on the 'Street Team' for the series to help promote it, It's just one of those series that captures your heart and mind.
I downloaded this short story a while ago and was really excited to read it, but I had to finish the book I was reading then it ended up in my 'pile'. If you watched my TBR video I posted yesterday, I went through everything I had and I saw this listed. As it was only 32 pages I decided to dive in. 
C.C Hunters writing just grabs you and pulls you in. Within the first paragraph I was back into the world. This novella follows Della and shows us how she became a Vampire, when everything in her life changed. I always liked Della so it was great to see an insight into her past and how she dealt with it and why she ended up where she did and with the attitude she has.
I want more like this, 32 pages passed in a flash and i wanted more.
I'm now even more excited and looking forward to the newest book 'Chosen at Nightfall' which is due out this year in June! These characters have become like friends to me and I want to see what they are up to now. 
C.C Hunter is a wonder with words!
If you haven't read this series yet, you are seriously missing out, find a copy of 'Born at Midnight (bk1) and get stuck in!
