Best Seller For A Day Book Review: Fierce Dawn

Fierce Dawn (ParaRealm)
Author: Amber Scott
Title: Fierce Dawn
Publisher: Tholden Press
Publish Date: April 1, 2011
Buy: Amazon
Review Copy Provided By: The author
Book Blurb: Snarling teeth, glowing eyes. Someone--something--is after Sadie Graves.
Elijah Stokes, the man who haunts her dreams, enters her reality claiming she’s transforming into a changeling--not quite immortal but no longer human.

Battle lines are drawn and blood spills as the two fight not only for Sadie’s life, but for all of mankind's as well.

Review: I've read a lot of Amber Scott's books and I've loved them all. This one was no exception, but it was a little harder for me to get into, mostly because I only casually read paranormals. If you love paranormal, and you don't read this, well....YOU SHOULD.

There is so much going on in this story. It starts with Sadie and her sister, Heather coping with their mother's issues, then flashes forward to Sadie dealing with her own problems and Heather acting the part of the concerned parent. (Even though she is the younger sibling). One thing I can say throughout most of the book, Heather was obnoxious. She spent so much time worrying that Sadie was insane, that it was hard to believe she wasn't. She definitely would have driven me there!

The real essence of this story is the relationship between Sadie and Elijah. There's some sexual tension here that you need a knife to cut! Elijah is a seeker from another realm. Sadie is a human..or she thinks she is...actually she's a changling. Not quite human but not totally immortal. Immortals view love in a different way from humans and this is really the key to keeping that tension level high.

She's also the key to finding a long lost book that has information about the two realms. There are a lot of people looking for Sadie and most of them aren't looking for her for good reasons.

Ms. Scott keeps this story moving at a fast pace by combining mystery, romance and a lot of the unexpected. There were quite a few plot twists near the end that I definitely didn't see coming. I'm looking forward to the second book in this series.
