Blog Tour Review: ReAwakened

Author: Ada Adams
Publication Date: November 27, 2012
Series: Angel Creek # 2

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.
“Sure, I could say the word “love” in at least twenty different languages, but actual matters of the heart stumped me. If there was a gene responsible for uncomplicated interactions with guys, I was pretty sure that I didn’t possess it. That’s not to say that my life at the Scarlet House hadn’t provided me with plenty of opportunities for physical interactions with men, but most of the guys were at least three times my age – both in vampire and human years – and the physical contact usually entailed combat.” – Kindle Copy

“Brooke groaned. ‘Couple or not, isn’t he from like the 1800’s? Chivalry isn’t dead, you know.’” – Kindle Copy

“‘You must stay far away from this,’ he cautioned. ‘This whole thing is bigger and more dangerous than any of us can even comprehend.’ With that warning, he let out his final breath. The team and I spend the rest of the night digging our attackers’ graves.” – Kindle Copy

“I opted for a slow walk through the forest, not wanting to rush toward what I was certain was an empty home, surrounded by angry clouds and enveloped in darkness. The rain was cool, yet it felt incredibly soothing against my skin. Ever since I was a little girl, walking in stormy weather had served as a means to release anxiety. There was something liberating about gliding through the rain; I found a magical sense of comfort in letting it wash away all frustrations of the world.” – Kindle Copy

Ada Adams has done it again! I never thought that it would be possible to WOW me in a sequel like this, but boy did she ever?!! From the very first page I could not put down this book, and I was very anxious to follow Dawn and the Misfits on another journey. Ada has a way of grabbing readers and allowing them to never lose hold. She takes you on a fast-paced journey throughout every page, but she also knows how to slow readers down and allow them to enjoy Dawn’s scenery. I couldn’t ask for a better sequel and I am so happy to give this book 5 big, pink cupcakes!
Ada gives you action and tons of adventure. This is no understatement, and the best part about it is that the action is one you will never get lost in. Her writing is so clear and concise and you always know which characters are doing what. Even is Seth does try to kill a massive werewolf with a spatula! And Dawn is just such a kick-butt heroine on top of it all. Her lethal combat and weaponry skills only improve in this book, and I just cannot get enough of the confidence that she carries around. I never get tired of Dawn and I am definitely rooting for her 100% while reading. This book is a bit different as far as her love life goes, and all I can say is, hang on tight!!
I absolutely love the world that Ada has created in this series, and it only gets better from here. I love her invention of Blood Cola, Blood Vodka, etc. This type of added detail only makes things more realistic for me while reading. Dawn is at times a serious character and the conflict that they face is more times than not fatal and deadly, so having small details attached to their world can help to make the reading a little more light and enjoyable. Combat is great, especially to read about Dawn in combat, but it is nice at times to feel a connection to the setting and characters who are among other things, vampires! I often wonder if we could assimilate into a world where vampires walk around freely, and then I just come to the conclusion that we should probably just leave that to Dawn and her gang of Misfits.
I love the gang of Misfits and besides Dawn, they are probably my favorite part of this book. Their stories continue to develop in this book as well. I highly recommend any lovers of young adult fiction or vampiric worlds to pick up this series! You will not regret it.
