Blog Tour De Force Cage Match review + giveaways: fierce dawn by Amber Scott

There is a particular kind of pain, elation, loneliness, and terror involved in this kind of madness. 
- Kay Redfield Jamison

Fierce Dawn
when they were teenagers, Sadie Graves and her younger sister Heather had to live through their mother's downward spiral as evidenced by self-mutilation and prophetic scribblings on her numerous journals. now twenty-two and orphaned, Sadie herself is taking medication and undergoing psychiatric care. she is having dreams of a winged handsome stranger and her behavior has become suspect to those around her. even her role as the eldest child has been displaced by Heather. unknown to Sadie, a trio of immortals headed by Elijah Stokes is shadowing her. together with Holly and Lyric, Elijah needs Sadie's help to find his teammate and friend who has disappeared in his search for the Book of Sorrows - a book believed to predict the marriage of the mortal and immortal realms.
reading half of this book was quite a struggle for me. there was so much information i needed to absorb and digest about prophecies, realms, a group of anti-human immortals called Illeautians, a mysterious book, changelings, feeders and a few other details. everything seemed like an enigma at first but it was a worthy struggle though because it did not stop me from devouring the rest of the book.
fans of the paranormal, urban fantasy and romance genres will enjoy and find something totally different and fresh from author Amber Scott. 
she has hooked me again with her skillful storytelling. i have read her other books and i am just amazed at her range of writing style - from contemporary romance stories like Play Fling and Just Desserts to the historical romance novel Irish Moon.
in Fierce Dawn, she scatters cryptic pieces of her story, populates it with strange yet interesting characers, provides twists and surprises then gathers them all together to a very satisfying finish. 

*Fierce Dawn is available at Amazon and in mutliple formats at Smashwords. for more information about Amber Scott and her work, please visit her weblog at http://amberscottproject.wordpress.com/
