Review: ReAwakened by Ada Adams

*Won a free copy 

Becoming a vampire guardian was Dawn Fairchild’s ticket out of the Scarlet House. Fresh off a successful mission, life in Angel Creek should have been great. But when her sort-of-maybe-boyfriend, Sebastian, disappears on a quest to help a beautiful vampire from his past, Dawn finds herself amidst a web of danger, lies, and deceit.

Joining forces with Razor, an enigmatic rebel lacking both a verbal and a physical filter, and her band of Misfits—Brooke, Sophie, Hunter, and Seth—Dawn is thrust into a race against the clock to solve the mystery surrounding brutal Born kidnappings and come to terms with the sudden discovery of her own unique powers. With time ticking away and Born vampires’ lives in jeopardy, it quickly becomes evident that someone—or something—desperately wants Dawn and is willing to shed any amount of blood to get her.

Dawn has only one chance to face her demons and overcome all obstacles standing in her way as she embarks on the biggest mission of her life—one that threatens a deadly outcome for all involved.

My Review

Dawn and her team have completed their first mission. But the casualties of that mission still haunt Dawn. The team tries to pull her out of it, but to no avail. Then she learns that Born vampires are going missing and that no one seems to be doing anything about it. And when Sebastian goes missing, Dawn takes it upon herself to get to the bottom of the missing Born. Only she discovers something a lot more sinister is going on and that someone wants her.

In ReAwakened Dawn's team of misfits is thrown into a mission that will put all their lives in danger. Because something sinister is hunting Dawn and will do anything to get their hands on her, even if it means torturing and killing everyone she cares about. This time around Dawn's team is a little more prepared for what they are about to face and are finally starting to look and act like true guardians of Angel Creek.

Each member of the team has shown significant growth since they were first found by Dawn, with each of them finding what they are good at and developing it so that they can form a stronger team. And as Dawn mourns for her loss the team does a great job holding things together and trying to help her pick up the pieces. They are ready to charge into battle to protect each other and their town.

Of course I love all the characters in this series, with Sebastian being my favorite, but along with a new mission comes a new character, and I have to say that I am loving the addition of Razor to the story. Razor is dangerous, carefree, fun, suave and sexy as hell, and the best part is.....he's Sebastian's brother! Eep! There are two incredibly sexy as hell vampires in Angel Creek. I think I just died and went to heaven. They are the perfect pair. Where Sebastian is debonair, Razor is snarky. Where Sebastian is conservative, Razor is brash. They are like yin and yang, light and dark and all kinds of deliciousness. The addition of Razor was a great move on author Ada Adams part and I really can't wait to see where she takes it next.

I love Dawn too. I mean who doesn't love a strong female character that can kick your butt up one side of the mountain and down the other. Dawn is strong, loyal, caring, and one heck of a leader. She will do anything for those she has sworn to protect, even if it means making the ultimate sacrifice.

Besides having incredibly sexy characters, Ada Adams gives us an incredible story that sinks it's fangs in you the minute you pick it up. ReAwakened really brings us everything you can possibly want from a vampire story: great action, danger, suspense, humor, mystery, love, and of course awesome vamps.

ReAwakened  gives us new villains to hate, new people to like or dislike and takes us on one heck of a twisty ride, delivering shock after shock! And let me warn you now, the ending will literally make you stop breathing, cry uncontrollably and stare at your kindle like it just grew a head. Now don't say I didn't warn you. Shocking ending aside, ReAwakened is a must read, and if you are a fan of The Vampire Diaries then you have to start this story.

"Oh come on, Razor Boy and Dagger Girl--it's brilliant! We're like an old-school crime-fighting team. Fighting evil, one bad guy at a time." (kindle, loc. 1523).

This is just one example of Razor's personality. He really adds that little spice to the story!
