Rewiew of Fierce Dawn By: Amber Scott

Snarling teeth, glowing eyes. Someone--something--is after her.

The man who haunts her dreams enters her reality, claiming she's transforming into a changeling--not quite immortal but no longer human.

Battlelines are drawn and blood spills as the two fight not only for her life, but for mankind's as well.

My Review

Have you ever wondered what it would be like trying to start a normal life again after you have been committed?  Sadie didn’t.  She was living it.  Being raised with a mom that was less than, well ok A lot less than sane, didn’t help her case any.  The doctors and her sister had her labeled as the predetermined daughter to follow in her mother’s footsteps.  All because of the breakdown she had after her mother died.  But that was behind her now.  She was out and trying her best to get off of the medication the doctors put her on.  She didn’t need to live her life in a fog.  What she needed was feel alive and normal again.  To be an active part of society and to be able to get back some of the life she lost.  So, she was having sex dreams about an incredibly hot angel.  That was kind of normal right?  When was the last time she had sex?  It was just her body’s way of telling her she needed it.  And so what if they were so vivid and detailed she could paint him from memory and journal about him.  It didn’t make her manic just because she was obsessing with him.  He wasn’t real…or was he?
Elijah had enough problems then chasing after a human who was supposed to be some sort of something else.  He had a missing brother to find and stop before he did something drastic like end one of the realms.  But here he was following a girl on a hunch from his sister.  He didn’t feel any vibrations from her and he was a seeker.  Worse yet, she expected him to invite Lyric back into the group so he could get a feed off of her and tell him what he thought.  He didn’t need a feeder around him, especially one that had supposedly kicked his addiction and was supposedly trying to stay clean.  Lyric was no longer one of his brothers and he couldn’t trust him as far as he could toss him.  So why had he intervened and saved her from being date raped at the club?  Why was he lying to her family about being her boyfriend and why did he feel the need to keep her safe?  And what was this pull he felt deep within himself, this need to have her close, no matter what the cost?
Sadie sees and feels things that aren’t there long before Elijah steps into her life, well steps out of her dreams and into her life that is.   She can’t decide if she really is slipping off into insanity or if something else really is happening to her.  I love Sadie.  She is by far my favorite character.  She’s so believable.  The way she goes about rebuilding her life never knowing that something else entirely is actually happening to her.  You feel her pain and her anger as everything she’s struggled to accomplish falls apart again and again.  She has to recreate her world all over again but at least she’s armed with the knowledge that she was never insane.  That the things she did and the things she felt were real and not just created by a sick mind.  Just as she knows she loves Elijah, way before she ever admits it.  She comes to trust her instincts and feelings when she realizes her role in life is way beyond anything she could have fathomed.  This book was so intense that I couldn’t put it down.  It is so much more than a paranormal love story.  Scott has a wonderful imagination and shows you just a glimpse into this realm she has created.   She’s stretched proverbial boundaries and given a fresh take into the fantasy world.  This is a book that has you questioning whether the reality of her world could be a possibility.  I enjoyed it immensely and would recommend it highly.  I can’t wait for the next installment!!
