Synopsis: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.
My Thoughts: I loved this book, completely loved it! I think that I enjoyed it so much because it just seemed so different from the normal vampire book. Normally, vampires are made out to be super hot, strong, seductive and suave. In Ada Adam's novel, they are pretty good looking still, but not all are strong and agile, or seductive. In fact, the misfit vampires seem about as far as you can go from what's "normal" for vampires. And that cover? I love it!
In Adams' world, the vampires are coexisting with humans quite peacefully. They have products in all of the stores so that the vampires don't need to feed off humans. There is Blood Cola, Blood Beer, Blood Vodka and vampires can't forget to eat a healthy diet of garlic so they can venture out into the sun. There are two ways to become a vampire; the classic way, to be made a vampire, and then there is the extremely rare way, to be born a vampire. Dawn, our protagonist, is a Born vampire, so she will age until she dies unless she has a child, which is extremely dangerous.
I had a really hard time putting this book down once I started reading it. I was just so engrossed in the world Adams has created that I had to read it all. I kept thinking I knew what was going to happen next, but I just never saw what was coming. There is a huge revelation for Dawn that I was just so shocked for,did not see it coming at all. I had to keep reading after that!
There are two love interests for Dawn. Ethan, a human, and Sebastian, a vampire. Both are super hot and amazing, but who will Dawn choose? Before this mission she had no idea how to talk to guys. So it's pretty amusing reading about a vampire who is completely speechless around guys.
I literally laughed out loud multiple times while reading, getting me strange looks from the people around me. I was sad and just clinging on in anticipation in other parts. I just can't say enough good things about this book. I loved it, you need to read it, it's amazing. Forget what you know about vampires because Adams will completely blow your mind!
