A simple mission turned deadly.

Nineteen-year-old vampire Dawn has led a sheltered life within the confines of her father’s presidential headquarters. Upon being sent on a mission to revamp four goofy misfits into guardians of a peaceful little town of Angel Creek, Dawn believes that all her dreams have finally come true. What starts off as a simple task, turns into something unexpected, changing Dawn’s life forever and leading the action-loving, thrill-seeking vampire teen on a path of mystery, danger and intrigue.

When a human girl is kidnapped by a group of rogue vamps, Dawn discovers that there is more going on in Angel Creek than meets the eye. And it all connects to Ethan, the cute newcomer who seems too perfect to be true, Sebastian, the mysterious vampire with a turbulent past, and even Dawn herself. Dawn must not only succeed in revamping the troubled recruits, but must also prevent the vampire race from being overtaken by a malevolent villain who has a strange and obsessive fascination with her. As threat escalates, romance blooms, and ghosts from her past begin to surface, Dawn is sure of only one thing: her life will never be the same.


This was a nice, exciting read but I didn't like it as much as I thought I would. There were a few things that annoyed me so that's why I only gave it 3 stars.

The first thing that annoyed me was when Dawn went to Angel Creek to recruit the new guardians. They all just gave up everything and went with her without so much as a questioning why them? If that was me and some stranger just told me to follow them and to go to an isolated cabin in the middle of woods with them I would like to think I'd be a little hesitant :P I mean sure they were told that they were selected to be the new guardians of the town but they all expected it too quickly for my liking. I mean whats to say that she was actually telling you the truth? You know what they say. Don't get into a van with a stranger just because he offers you sweets. 

Another thing that annoyed me was the love interests. Ethan bugged me. It wasn't a case of insta-love but it wasn't far off it. How can he have fallen so head over heels for Dawn after just one encounter?? Seriously they spoke like two words to each other and all of a sudden they are both mad after one another. Sebastian wasn't as bad. I could kind of understand his attraction to her and Dawn's attraction to him but even still. It just felt too rushed even though they didn't kiss until the very end of the book. I also didn't find him as brooding and moody as everyone else makes him out to be. He didn't come across as that much of a "bad boy" in my opinion. And another thing, after what Ethan did I would not have forgiven him as quickly as the others did. No way!

So your probably wondering why I even gave it 3 stars but apart from all the above it was an interesting read. The big surprise at the end was quite a shocker and the action scenes were good so I will read ReAwakened just to find out what happens next. But overall I was kind of disappointed :(

  1. Aww that's too bad. I got this one a little while ago but I haven't read it yet (this is the real danger of ebooks!). Hopefully I will be able to enjoy it.
