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
The cover is simply gorgeous! Though I must say, on covers lately, there's always a face on it, personally, I'm finding it a little over done now and want to see some more mysterious and creative ones.
On to the story! 19 year old Dawn is a kick-butt protagonist who is uber intelligent and may have issues in dealing with the boys department since she has forever been kept under the wing of her Father, the President of the Vampiric citizens around the world. During the coarse of the story, Dawn receives the chance to leave home and venture out to Angel Creek, set on revamping some vampire misfits into hero's.
While reading, I got a little bored due to some things being a little too wordy at times and the text being a little descriptive. I ended up catching myself skimming throughout the coarse of the story. As a teenager myself, I have to admit that I don't have much patience when things get largely based towards the descriptive writing on surroundings and such.
Since Dawn is 19, she's practically a mature adult, and it shows in her personality, so while reading, I didn't find myself to be very amused because she was so mature and experienced in certain ways, therefore, her thoughts didn't really appeal to me and I couldn't find a way to relate to her on any level.
The characters around her, such as the 4 misfits, I thought would add in a load more comedy, but I didn't really see much and sort of wished for a little more, so it could seemingly balance out the anxiety levels within the story.
The main story base I thought was really creative, and was clearly really interesting when certain mysteries began to unravel and twists were unexpectedly added. I enjoyed that coarse.
But mainly, I didn't really enjoy it as much as I thought I would have, and I think this book would appeal better towards an older age group, because being a teenager myself, I got a quite bored.
Ada Adams is a great author in sorts and I greatly admire her at writing this book, nor do I mean anything harsh against her. Its simply an opinion and its obvious that this book just wasn't my style nor taste.
