"Spectacular! I love Della's sarcastic and yet deeply sensitive perspective and can't wait to see how things unfold for her."-- Fresh Fiction

Just when Della feels like she's starting to figure out her life, she finds herself reborn ...and her new existence comes with a whole different rulebook.
Della's secret powers always made her feel like an outsider in the human world. Now, just when she's starting to feel like she belongs--at Shadow Falls, a camp for teens with paranormal powers--her life is turned upside down all over again. Attacked by a deadly virus, she must make the difficult choice to be reborn . It's her only chance at survival, but it comes with a price: It irreparably bonds her to Chase, a tall, dark and mesmerizing vampire who makes her laugh one minute and infuriates her the next.Chase already knows too many of Della's secrets, and being eternally bonded to him is the last thing she wants. Even worse, she doesn't fully understand what their bond means. Is the attraction she's started feeling for Chase real--or does fate have something else in store? And what does that mean for Steve, the hot shapeshifter whose kisses make her weak in the knees? Now Della's battered heart is about to take another hit. While investigating her latest case, she discovers shocking evidence about her father's dark past, making her question everything she believes to be true...and her place in the world she loves.

I still don't quite understand how Miss Hunter can set up an entire book surrounding a central issue (in this case, two missing fresh-turned vampires) and resolve it within the last 50 pages of the book. I was wading through new evidence, new pieces of information that would lead to Natasha and Liam's discovery for about 300 pages, but I was so invested that I almost didn't notice. Until I figured that I would just have to wait for the next book to see what happened to the vampires, and then suddenly, the pace picked up and WHAM! conflict solved. Don't get me wrong, I like that it was resolved, but I just felt like it happened a little too quickly, like it was rushed a bit. But Della and Chase! Made up for the whole thing. Not too much of a love triangle anymore (thank goodness. Honestly, I'm more sad about Perry leaving Miranda than Steve leaving Della) and Della begins to put her trust into her new FRU/Vampire Council partnership. And THEN! Oh yea, so, Chase has been lying the whole time (a small part of me figured that was the case) and has known and been in contact with Della's uncle. Not only that, but the ghost, Natasha's mom (and Della's aunt) is still hanging around after her daughter was found out, which means that she's there to find out about her murder/get justice. And even though it could be her father that did it, I'm betting that her uncle was the real murderer. She needs to stay away from her uncle, get Chase away from him, help prove her father innocent of the murder, and rebuild her family relationship (my heart tore at the 'dirty laundry' comment). I'm anticipating the next book with much enthusiasm.

This book was really good and another great addition to the Shadow Falls Series. I am really enjoying getting to know more about Della in this series and this book provided a lot of background as well as providing even more questions about her family history. I also enjoyed seeing how the relationship between Della and Chase evolved during this book. The book ended on a cliffhanger and I can't wait to find out what happens next for Della and her family.
