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.

This review should be easy, right? All I want to say is "THIS BOOK IS AMAZING, YOU SHOULD READ IT" but, the books you love the most, are always the hardest reviews to write. I really just want to write a bunch of OMGs, and swoons, and loves.....but here goes trying to write an intelligent review that makes sense!

I was so excited to be able to dive back into the Angel Creek series. I absolutely loved ReVamped. Everything about it was wonderful and it was easily one of my favorite books of the year. Now, only a few months later, ReAwakened is also on the top of that list. Ada Adams is truly a fantastic author! This story has one of the most original vampire plots out there, the characters can seriously be my best friends, and the writing is fast paced and kept me interested the entire time.

The book starts out a little while after the events that went down in ReVamped. Dawn is still dealing with everything that had happened, and boy, did a lot to happen. What I love about Dawn is how strong she is. She doesn't let her emotions hold her back. Even while dealing with her own crap, she was always there for her friends, no matter what their problem was.

My absolute favorite part of ReAwakened was learning about the backgrounds of the characters, especially Hunter. All we ever knew about him was that he was a druggie guitarist whose band was about to become nation wide famous before turning into a vampire. He was a loner, who usually stayed quiet when around everyone, but in ReAwakened  he finally opened up about his past and it explained so much about his character. I am whole-heartedly a Hunter girl now!

We are also introduced to some new vampires, including Razor, who happens to have a very interesting connection to Sebastian. I loved Razor. He's gorgeous, sweet, and a doctor!! Can't get much better then that! And I love how much he made fun of Sebastian for being emo and moody.

This entire story was about character development, especially comparing these characters to how they were in the first book. I love the direction that every single character is going, well except Sebastian's character.....but I won't give anything away, and if you read the book you know EXACTLY what I am talking about.

As much as I loved all of the characters, I really missed Ethan, like a lot. But I have been assured that he will be playing a big part in the third book!

There is a lot happening in ReAwakened, but it never became to much to handle. Adams has a talent for incorporating many story lines effortlessly and seamlessly. Everything worked perfectly together and I seriously loved every single minute of this story.

I HIGHLY recommend this series. I recommend this story to YA lovers, New Adult lovers, vampire lovers, adults, old people, teenagers, basically everyone!  Go and get yourself a copy NOW, you won't regret it!
