Title: Cameron's Law
Series: The Adelheid Series, Book 1
Author: Mia Darien
Publisher: Mia Darien
Description: Vampires are people too...
That's what Sadie Stanton has been trying to get people to understand, and what the business she's setting up in the paranormal hotspot of Adelheid, Connecticut, is aiming to do. Cameron's Law has made all supernatural creatures legal citizens, and the boy next door has suddenly become the werewolf next door.
Not everyone likes that.
Now vampires have started attacking werewolves without provocation, and as if her fledgling business and preternatural rights poster girl status isn't keeping her busy enough, people are looking to Sadie to help keep these events from giving their enemies the ammunition to repeal the law and push them back in the shadows.
But her notoriety comes with an even higher cost. Can she find a way to keep the city's two biggest paranormal populations from descending into chaos and war, while her very help shoves her into the crossfire?
Review: Sadie is a famous vampire. She isn't happy about that, but it was the result of losing someone she loved as well as trying to pave the way for all supernatural beings to be accepted in the mortal world. A year ago she was forced into the spotlight as a person involved in the legislature creating Cameron's Law, a law that allowed some protection to the supernatural beings. No more creating false identities to compensate for living more than a century. No more hiding in the shadows. They could all come out in the open and act like normal human beings. The only problem is that vampires seem to be going crazy and randomly attacking werewolves with no intention of feeding. They are truly random attacks and somehow Sadie is getting put in the spotlight again for this. On top of that, the cop on the case is provoking feelings that she hasn't felt in over a year.
I really enjoyed this book. I have been selecting anything with a pretty cover that looks like Urban Fantasy or Paranormal Romance to read right now since those are the genres I love and haven't been signing up for book tours (for fear of not finishing by my due dates). This book gave me hope that maybe I am ready to start signing up for tours again since I read it in about three days. The story was a little slow getting started in terms of where it was heading. It feels like the story is going in one direction at first and then it takes a turn that, while obvious, seemed unexpected to me. I loved the character development. The romantic element was subtle and exciting even though there really isn't a lot of action in that department. I would recommend it to a YA audience that enjoy these genres. It was very well written and highly enjoyable.
