Quickie Review: Turned at Dark (Shadow Falls #0.5) by CC Hunter

Synopsis (Goodreads):
Independent and strong-willed Della Tsang hadn’t believed in ghosts until she saw her dead cousin darting into the shadows of an alley. She hadn’t believed in vampires until in the dark of that same night she is turned into one. Introduced to a strange world of supernaturals, she struggles to accept this new reality. Unfortunately, the boy she loves senses something different about her and can’t accept her. Should she follow her vampire cousin’s lead–walk away from everything she’s knows and loves—and fake her own death? Or should she set her pride aside and ask for help from the camp leader of Shadow Falls—a camp where supernaturals go to learn how to cope with their powers. Either way, her life as she knows it, will never be the same.
My Thoughts: A nice setup for the Shadow Falls series.  I mean, it was interesting enough that I'm looking at the 1st book in the series with an acquisitive gleam in my eye.  That must count for something, right?

I liked the different take on vampires here.  Well, not that the vampires are different, exactly, but I like that the way a vampire is created is different.  It's funky.  There was no biting involved.  I liked it.  Of course, I like the biting part too, but I liked that CC Hunter gave us mythology that was slightly skewed.  Does that make any sense?  Okay, how about this: I liked that we were given a different take on vampirism.

Short and sweet, it definitely tickled my fancy.
