Review: Fierce Dawn by Amber Scott
Title: Fierce Dawn
Author: Amber Scott
Found at : Amazon
When I was sent the ARC copy, I admittedly was eager. I read Irish Moon by the author and I truly enjoyed it! I am overjoyed to say Fierce Dawn met and exceeded my expectations. It had all the elements that I really enjoy: supernatural, sexual tension and a great story!
Starting off, we meet the young Sadie Graves, who is taking care of a mentally ill mother and her little sister, Heather. Her mother is obsessed with her rambling journals and all Sadie wants is to be a normal teen. Little does she know her life is going to be anything but.
Flashing forward to adulthood, we find Sadie and her sister's positions reversed. With their mother dead, Heather has turned caretaker to the now broken Sadie. Sadie is trying to find herself again while convincing her sister and the psychiatrist she's OK. What she doesn't mention is the dreams of a gorgeous man that have been haunting her for the past 6 months. Imagine her shock to discover the man of her dreams coming to the library where she works!
It's not a coincidence that has Elijah there. Something is after Sadie and her life is getting ready to change in ways she never dreamed. He is there to protect her and try to fight the strong physical attraction that has developed between them. He keeps telling her (and himself) the attraction is not real but it sure feels like it is!
This book was so wonderful! The story is gripping and entertaining. The realization there's another world in the shadow of this one is compelling. I also LOVED the sexual tension between Elijah and Sadie as they tried to fight the strong mutual attraction between them while trying to get to the bottom of the conspiracy to destroy the human world.
I read this book in one day, it was just that good! It's up for Blog Tour De Force author Cage Match on April 18 and Bestseller For A Day on May 18, but don't wait that long! Download this now! You'll be glad you did!
