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.
I was really excited to read this story. It looked different from the other vampire stories I have read before. The story was fast paced, and pretty well written. The only problem was that I just couldn’t get into the story. It was different in some ways, but it was also too much like all the other vampire books. It was different in the fact that it was futuristic, and everyone knew vampires existed. It was also a love tale, more than anything. I was really hoping for a story without all the mushy love scenes. Over all the entire book wasn't bad, I just wasn't that interested in the book. That being said I would encourage anyone who wants to read the book to do so. Just because didn't care for the book doesn't mean you wouldn't.
