Unspoken (Shadow Falls: After Dark #3) by C.C. Hunter
Publication Date: October 28, 2015
Despite her superhuman
strength and enhanced senses, Della Tsang's life as a vampire certainly
hasn't been easy. Especially since she was reborn and bound to the
mysterious, infuriating, and gorgeous Chase Tallman.
there's one thing that's always kept Della going, it's her dream of
being an elite paranormal investigator. Her newest case is the
opportunity she's been waiting for, but as Della tries to solve the
twenty year old murder and clear her father's name. She uncovers secrets
about the vampire council. And about Chase.
Feeling betrayed by
all the secrets he's kept hidden from her, Della is determined to keep
him as far away from her heart as she can. But she'll need his help to
solve the case that will lead them into the darkest and ugliest vampire
gangs in town and into the scariest reaches of her heart.
This was a fantastic conclusion to this amazing series! C.C. Hunter has
always blown me away with her writing. She always manages to capture
the right amount of humor, action, and romance in all of her books, and
it makes for such an enjoyable read. This book has it all: drama (it
knows no bounds in this one), pure craziness (come on, it's Della we're
talking about here), suspense, and laugh-out-loud moments. Suffice to
say, this was the perfect way to end the series, and I think Unspoken will please all fans.
has always been such an interesting character to me. In the original
Shadow Falls series, she was a bit of an enigma. We never got a truly
good grasp on her. That was why I was so happy to have an entire series
about her. I felt throughout the course of this series we got to see a
side to Della that most people didn't see. We were able to understand
her much better. Regardless, she has grown leaps and bounds from when
we first met her, but she is still Della through and through. I love
her spunk, her feisty nature, and her sarcasm. She is a tough girl on
the outside, but vulnerable on the inside. Della has a lot going on in
her life, and all our questions (and hers as well) are answered in this
novel...especially in regards to her father's behavior towards her.
There were some scenes that broke my heart, and all I wanted to do was
give Della a hug. Della is such a relatable character, and I loved how
C.C. Hunter portrayed that in the books.
While I have never
been a fan of love triangles, the one between Della, Steve, and Chase is
definitely an interesting one for sure. There is plenty of drama, and
it makes for a good read. There were a couple times that I wished Della
would just admit what she was feeling and be with who she truly wanted
to be with (not giving away any spoilers!!), but I did like how Della
reasoned everything out. She realized what she felt toward Steve and
Chase respectively, and acted on that. I felt Della went about it very
intelligently, and it showed just how much she has grown. Matters of
the heart are definitely not something that are to be rushed in to, and
Della did take her time with her decision. But when she does make her
decision, it's makes for a really sweet and cute moment at the end of
Overall, this was a great way to end the series. There was
of action and plenty of twists and turns. C.C. Hunter
resolved the story of her aunt's murder very well, and I liked the turn
the story took. The story is a little darker, as it delves more into
the gang world, but it makes for a great read! This is a must read for
all Shadow Falls fans, and not to be missed!
*I received an ARC of this novel from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
Happy reading :)
