Whispers At Moonrise by C.C. Hunter

From Wiki: Even at a camp for supernatural teens, Kylie Galen has never been normal. Not only can she see ghosts, but she doesn’t seem to belong to any one species — she exhibits traits from them all. As Kylie struggles to unlock the secrets of her identity, she begins to worry that Lucas will never be able to accept her for what she is, and what she isn’t… a werewolf. With his pack standing in their way, Kylie finds herself turning more and more to Derek, the only person in her life who’s willing to accept the impossible.
As if life isn't hard enough, she starts getting visits from the ghost of Holiday, her closest confidante. Trouble is, Holiday isn't dead... not yet anyway. Now Kylie must race to save one of her own from an unseen danger before it's too late - all while trying to stop her relationships with Lucas from slipping away forever. In a world of constant confusion, there's only one thing Kylie knows for sure: Change is inevitable and all things must come to an end... maybe even her time at Shadow Falls.

Blog Reopening!

Hey! How are you liking the new blog? I'm sorry I haven't updated in a long time; I've been working on my other blog, Emma Reader's Blog (I found a post that I didn't get to finish and post; the summary of Torn. So I'll be doing that now). As you can see, I've made some new changes to the site. It's not the final layout, but it's as good as it's going to get for now.

Let me explain some stuff. Before, I had three tabs with lists of links containing the book summaries I wrote. But I thought that was a waste, so I combined all three lists onto one page. Much better, no? I'm also going to post more book summaries and all that, but not in the exact same format. I probably won't write them, just steal them from Wiki.

That's another thing I have to tell you guys that have only been following this blog (not that many, but I'm going to say it anyway); Information Forest is now going to be a "helper" for my other blog. Helper, as in, used for the needs of Emma Reader's Blog. I had been posting my book reviews on the other blog and realized that I never posted a description of the books. So the people reading the review would have no idea what I was talking about (unless they read the book already themselves). That's probably the biggest change I made, though you might not be able to tell just by looking at it.

But like all changes, I had to delete some stuff. Below is the content that I had to remove from it's original spot on the site, but couldn't stand deleting permanently (jeez, I'm such a packrat!).


Below are various announcements by yours truly. If you want to know when the next book summary is coming out, look here.


Wow. I'm really sorry! I was going to post in last month, and I just kept forgetting! I thought I was only two weeks late, not a whole month! But the Switched summary is posted now, and I didn't even put that much effort into it. I realized that the only reason why I started writing summaries in the first place was because I couldn't find them for the books I wanted in the first place. So, it's up there. I'll be posting the summary for the sequel shortly in a similar format.


Looks like I won't be posting the Switched summary this week. Perhaps next week I will have more time.


I've decided to read Switched; a relatively shorter book compared to the Seven Realms series. At the moment, I'm about fifty pages in. It's not very much, but I hope to post the summary by the end of the week.


I just finished typing up the Exiled Queen summary! Talk about tiring. I wrote twenty pages worth of summary information, but I was just so tired of this that I edited big chunks of the story out of the summary. It still is a very long one though. One of these days I'm going to have to go back and edit each one. Hopefully my summaries will get shorter.


I'm finishing up The Exiled Queen today. I should be able to post the summary as early as tomorrow!

About Site 

Welcome to my site.

If you randomly stumbled across this site, heard a friend talking about it, etc, you probably don't know what this is all about. After all, the name of my blog isn't that revealing, is it? The truth is, I made this blog without posting anything on it way before I started typing this. Sure, I could have started fresh, but I thought, "What's wrong with this blog?" The answer: nothing. So I kept it.

Now, this blog is about books. If your a fire-breathing, sword-using, marshmallow-eating book hater, I'm kicking you out of my site (virtually, of course). It's mainly for my own use, but I can share. I'll be writing a short (or very, very long) summary about the books I read so that I can remember everything about the books in a series after waiting a year or so for the next book to come out. However, if there is already a suitable summary somewhere in the World Wide Web, then I will be posting that instead. This is not a replacement for reading books!

This idea came a little belated, so I might start writing summaries in the middle of a series. But when I have time (or when I can find the books), I'll fill in the blanks. As far as this making-a-site thing, I have about half a percent of experience. But, as a newbie, I'll try my best to be as informational as possible.

Thanks for reading all this; enjoy!

-Emma Reader

Torn by Amanda Hocking


From Amanda Hocking's Blog: Wendy thought she finally understood who she was and what she wanted, but everything changes when the rival Vittra come after her.

She's caught between two worlds, torn between love and duty, and she must decide what life she is meant to lead.


From Wiki: The start of the book begins almost exactly where the end of Switched left off, with Wendy and Rhys running away from the palace in the Trylle's Förening. The two arrive at the home and Wendy attempts to explain to her "host brother" Matt that Rhys is his brother. He reacts with disbelief yet she tells him that she cannot tell him where she has been or Finn's part in it all.While in the midst of trying to understand what has happened, Matt finds a disliking towards Rhys.
Later that night, Finn visits her and attempts to convince her to return to Förening with him. She refuses as another tracker, Duncan, shows up with the same goal. Wendy tells both that she will not return to Förening and they leave. Two Vittra members, Loki and Kyra, attack the house as Finn and Duncan leave and take the three to the Vittra palace to the King, in which Wendy is left badly injured by Kyra.While taken as prisoner by the Vittra, Wendy is severally injured and Matt asks a guard to bring in a doctor to heal her.
There (after being healed by a female Vittra), Wendy practises her power of persuasion on Rhys with an unusual side effect. She is taken to the King named Oren who informs her that he is her father and the woman who healed her her step-mother, a result from a prior union with Elora in an attempt to unify the Trylle and the Vittra. Loki allows the three to escape with help from Tove, Duncan and Finn and they return to Förening.
At Förening, Wendy begins classes with Tove, the skilled Markis who possesses grand powers of psychokinesis, to strengthen and control her own power. She is also assigned Duncan as a bodyguard.
One night, Elora alerts everyone nearby to the appearance of a Vittra on their perimeter. It is revealed to be Loki, and Wendy insists on imprisoning him instead of executing him. Wendy's powers begin to grow stronger as does Matt's relationships with Rhys and young Marksinna Willa.
Using her more-controlled powers, Wendy manages to get the location of Finn from Duncan and visits his family home where his mother raises Angora goats and his father is also a tracker. Finn shuns her on the grounds of the prejudice surrounding such a relationship.
Wendy confronts her mother about what Oren told her in her stay at the Vittra palace, to which Elora tells Wendy of her past and the arranged marriage between Wendy's father and her. Elora says that her parents thought of it as a good idea, so she did it without question. She tells Wendy that she has arranged her marriage to Tove to which Wendy objects. Elora begins to bleed from her nose and collapses, later informing her that she is dying from her precognition painting. Wendy learns that the powers used by the trolls age and drain them. Wendy eventually accepts the proposal and the two become engaged.
Wendy then finds that Loki has escaped now that Elora's hold on him has weakened and he asks her to escape both the Vittra and the Trylle with him, knowing she is not happy. Wendy does not accept and instead turns her time to learn the "dead language" of the Trylle so that she can better help the commune. Finn helps her with this until they experience a brief romantic interlude which Finn's father interrupts. Finn leaves, embarrassed and tells her that duty over love was the best choice for him.
The book ends with Tove giving an engagement ring to Wendy and they enter their engagement party together.
