Turned at Dark Edit
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.
Born at MidnightEdit
In June, Della arrives at Shadow Falls Camp for the first time. On her first day, she befriends Kylie Galen and Miranda Kane, who are also her roommates. Though Kylie is afraid of her at first, she becomes more comfortable around her.
Near the end of Born at Midnight, Della and her friends concoct a plan to prevent the camp from getting shut down for incidents happening at the nearby wildlife park. While Della scouts the area for guards and later watches for FRU agent Burnett James, Kylie and Derek sneak into the wildlife park to communicate with the animals in hopes to find out what has been happening. In the midst of a battle against the Blood Brothers, Della comes to their aid, before Burnett and the FRU's agents arrive.
Awake at DawnEdit
Della is upset at Kylie for running away in the middle of a vampire ceremony, and at Miranda for badmouthing her culture. But she learns to overcome those issues in time.
While reading about accidents that happened months ago, Della worries that she might be responsible for them because of her transformation. She eventually tells Burnett about her suspicions, and gets taken to the station for investigation. To her relief, she wasn't responsible.
During parents weekend, Della and the campers return home. While at home, Della is ordered by her father to pee on a drug-testing stick every day. During this weekend, she also finds out that her ex-boyfriend Lee has started seeing someone else.
Taken at DuskEdit
Della tells Kylie about Lee's new girlfriend, and makes a pact with her to find new romances. She agrees to be more approachable to shape-shifter Steve. In the end, however, she goes against her word. At one point, she bursts into tears and tells Kylie how much she misses being human.
After an old couple impersonated themselves as Kylie's adoptive grandparents, Burnett assigns shadows (a follower or bodyguard of sorts) to watch over Kylie. Della is her first shadow.
When Ellie Mason, Derek's ex-girlfriend, first came to Shadow Falls, Della was very hostile toward her due to her loyalty to Kylie. However, as time passes, she starts to like her better, to the point where she encourages her to make new friends and votes her into the vampire group. When Ellie died, Della, like many others, are devastated.
Whispers at MoonriseEdit
In spite of Ellie's death, Shadow Falls returns to its normal state after the funeral.
After finding out about Kylie's supernatural identity and her grandfather's demand to remove her from the school, Della worries that she may have to lose another friend.
This eventually happens when Kylie decides to live with her grandfather to learn more about her kind.

Camp resident Della Tsang, who’s still coming into her own vampire powers, is assigned to help find those responsible. If she succeeds, maybe she’ll even land her dream job: working for the F.R.U., the enforcers of the supernatural world. But when she sees her new partner is the hunky Shape-shifter, things get complicated. Steve, too gorgeous to be trusted and capable of seeing through her tough-as-nails exterior, gets under this vampire’s skin. Only hours into the mission, Della realizes rogue vampires aren’t the only threat she’s facing. If she’s ever going to complete her assignment, she’ll need his help… but learning to trust him will be her hardest challenge yet.

Della returns to Shadow Falls Academy with Kylie already back from her stay at her grandfather's, Miranda pressures her to tell about the hickey that she received from making out with Steve, who she constantly tries to push away. Della later tells Kylie what had transpired during her and Steve's mission for the FRU. When Steve pays blood to spend an hour with her, she refuses, but Steve throws her over his shoulder and carries her away, much to her dismay. Though she temporarily shows more affection to Steve, she eventually goes back to ignoring him in the end. She sits by Miranda and Perry at Burnett and Holiday's wedding with Steve near by.

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 Shape-shifter 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.
