Everybody knows how much I love vampire books so when I got asked to be on this tour I jumped at the chance and I am so glad I did. I loved this book so much that I can't wait to go buy book 2 and read it. On my stop there is a spotlight, my review, and awesome giveaway. So let's get started and meet the author Ada.
“Many people sing in the shower. I write scenes in my head and act them out.”
As a writer and an actress, Ada spends most of her days immersed in imaginary worlds. Much like the kick-butt female characters she enjoys writing about, Ada is a martial artist with a Black Belt in Shotokan Karate. She is also a big proponent of lifelong learning and has attained a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology (it aids in creating characters with unique quirks!) as well as a Masters of Science in Education.
Ada began her writing career at the age of three with a string of short stories that only a mother could love, and has been inventing quirky characters and imaginary worlds ever since. She is an editor-in-chief of VEUX Magazine (www.veuxmag.com) and a passionate advocate for the arts. A self-proclaimed book and TV junkie, she also loves animals, chocolate, and bubble tea.
Ada lives in Toronto, Canada. When she's not writing, you can find her on an adventurous nature hike with her puppies, Caramilk and Oreo. Or, more likely, deep in a jar of Nutella...
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.
Dawn is the born vampire daughter of the vampire president. She has been sheltered all her life while getting the best teaching in everything from history to combat training. But when her dad send her on her very first mission to
to train new
vampire guardians to watch over the city he thinks it will be an easy and quick
assignment. But it becomes clear quickly that Dawn is being hunted since she is
so special but who is hunting her and why? Dawn will need all the help she can
get if she plans to stay alive and find out who is hunting her. Angel
has created with her vampires is so unique. She has them living along side
humans peacefully, where they are worshipped by them. Sounds like it can’t work
but Ada pulls
this off so well. Not to mention there are two types of vampires in her world
the made and the born. If your one of the few born vampires, you are special
and rare. I loved this concept as I think it’s very fresh and new vampire lore.
If you love strong kick ass heroines then you will love Dawn. She is defiantly on my top list of favorite heroines for 2013. For being only nineteen she is strong which made me forget her age in the book. But for as strong as she is there is a vulnerability to her also which makes it easy to connect with her. Her two love interests are as different as night and day. Ethan is suave and wants nothing more then to protect Dawn every chance he can. Where Sebastian is the dark bad boy we all know has a sweet side that just makes us love him even more. It was so hard for to pick who I loved more. But as secrets and pasts are revealed I found myself routing for Sebastian more and more.
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—orsomething—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.
