MY THOUGHTS
Ever since I picked up Born at Midnight four years ago, I've loved every one of these Shadow Falls books, so I was ecstatic to receive this book for review! I really enjoyed this last installment of Della's series!

Della's currently in what you would call a situation. Her father is going to go on trial for murdering his sister, a murder in which he didn't commit. Her father has also been border-line cruel with Della ever since she's become a vampire and she's convinced that he believes her a monster. Della has to track down her uncle, who may or may not have been who killed the sister. To top it all off, there are people being gruesomely murdered, she has a few ghosts hanging around her, and she's still bonded to Chase.

Make makes this book so different from the others is that we don't just follow Della, but Chase as well. I love Della. She's a fantastic MC and a badass. Yes, she can kick butt, but she has a strong attitude, won't take crap from anybody, and speaks her mind. I like Chase as well. I don't like how he he keeps lying to Della, but he the kind of guy who won't take crap from Della if that makes any sense. I gave this book 4.5 stars. The only reason why I couldn't give this book a 5 is because while I like Chase as a person, his point-of-view bothered me. He was sometimes borderline obsessive other Della and it kind of creeped me out at times. Other than that, it was fine.

I oddly like how the plot of these books have a merging of mystery and paranormal. Obviously, the paranormal is strong in this series, but I felt like the mystery aspect really came into this one. I don't even know where to start with this because SO MUCH HAPPENED! This was not a finale that lacked action or plot! The characters have to delve deeply to find out who is behind the sister's murder and the murders around town, as well as numerous other things they have to deal with in their lives. I thought it was fantastic how it was all dealt with and how things were able to wrap up!

As for romance, there wasn't a whole lot of actual romance in this book. There was mostly some angst throughout the book, especially from Della, but the major mystery plot took the wheel, which I am quite glad about. Don't worry, guys, there are some scenes!

IN CONCLUSION
Overall, I loved this book (and I loved this series)! Other than some issues with Chase's POV, this book was incredibly riveting and action-packed! I loved reading this series from Della's perspective and now it's like when Kylie's story came to an end, but I'm excited to read Miranda's story!
