Overview

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?

    awesome

    I loved this book. The development was wonderful and it just sucks you right in. The characters are so easy to like and the storyline was great. It was beautifully written with only minor mistakes. If you like vampire/were stories that aren't too childish or whiny, this would be something right up your alley.

    Fun To Read

    I loved how the story started out with humans knowing that there were supernatural creatures. Therefore, there was none of the overly done 'what is she/he'. The plot jumped straight into a mystery with the right amount of humor and romance. It was clean story that young teens and adults would enjoy.

    Cameron's Law is not a typical paranormal story involving vampir

    Cameron's Law is not a typical paranormal story involving vampires and werecreatures. First off their existence has been revealed and the world is still reeling. The book follows Sadie Stanton, one of the first vampires to reveal herself and a driving force behind the passage of Cameron's Law (the law making preternatural creatures citizens). She runs a business helping the supernatural community and helping regular humans who have issues that may be supernatural.

    Sadie is actually a pretty normal person, other than the liquid diet and no sunlight thing. She is dealing with trying to get her office staffed with all of the special ability people she needs to be an effective force for the good of the people. She is also recovering from heartbreak in the book meets an new potential love interest. If you are familiar with my reviews you know that kind of plot development can be a bit of a turn off for me, but Mia does it in a way that doesn't bother me. Sadie also has a pretty potent sarcastic streak which led to some amusing interactions between her and the other characters. Overall this was a bit of a new take on using paranormal creatures in a book and I really enjoyed the premise. I'll be checking into the second book fairly soon for sure.

    Great read though the ending felt rushed

    This was a great free book. The writing style was different but definitley enjoyable. It was from the main characters POV and because she was quirky herself it kept the book fun and interesting. The guide to the preternatural was a great addition but would have been more helpful if put at the beginning of the book. Because this book had a different spin on the supernatural and it wasnt really explained in the book itself I would definitley recommend that you read the guide at the end before you read the book itself or you will be left wondering about a few things. The only negative thing I will say is that the end felt rushed. I dont want to give anything away so I will just say that the author explained what happened but didnt exactly elaborate on why it happened. All in all this book was good and I would definitley read more of her work. I would love it if this were turned into a series with more from these very enjoyable characters. Especially more of Sadie and Dakota!

    Good story

    This vampire/werewolf novel was more of a mystery. I liked the character's wit and sarcasm. I felt that it had a decent plot, but lacked a certain flow. The romance seemed forced to me. Basically i would say the story was medocre.

    There are times when I just want to curl up with a good book and devour it like a cupcake. That is how I feel about this book and any from Mia Darien. As a reviewer I do not like to talk plot lines as I want other people to be surprised as I am in them So just let me say that this book was a fun, entertaining take on paranormal romance and I will re-read this multiple times.

    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.

    The book started out well.  I loved Sadie right from the very beginning.  The sarcasm, the snark.  Those are always traits I treasure in a character.  The book frequently had me laughing, or just the slightest of smiles at little comments and quirks.




    Some of the people reviewing commented that it was a little too obvious who was behind everything.  That is totally true.  Many times, I actively try not to figure out whodunit in a book — I want to be surprised — and this was definitely the case with this book.  And yet, I knew whodunit halfway through.




    It also could have done with another editor.  I repeatedly found misused words, and overused words, to name a couple things.  And I got sick and tired of how often the author used the word "that."  It's the most commonly overused word in the English language, and by about 30% in, I was getting really frustrated.




    Around Chapter 15 or 16, things started to go downhill.  Sadie knows what she should do, but she does stupid stuff anyway (I'm trying to avoid spoilers here), making me lose respect for her. She knows better.  And then a little bit later, she just makes it worse by breaking the law, and then the entire slate gets wipe clean at the end of the book.  Neither she, nor anyone who helped her break the law, get in trouble.  Nobody presses charges, even though they have more than enough evidence to do so.  The world doesn't work that way.  It just seemed like the author wrote herself into a corner, but wanted it to end a certain way so she wrote the ending all pretty and happy anyway.




    That being said, while I find myself frustrated right now, I did actually enjoy the book.  Not exceptional, but not terrible either.  I got frustrated with her overuse of "that," but it really wasn't difficult to read her writing.  I wanted to straggle Sadie for being stupid, but all in all, I enjoyed her, as well as some of the other characters in the book.  I felt invested in her.  I felt compelled to read on, even when I was irritated with her and the author.  It was a quick and compelling read.  It could have been better.




    ePub copy received in exchange for honest review.

    This is an intriguing read.

    Though "anyways" is too prevalent for my taste and the text isn't technically perfect (minor tense confusion, etc), this is a read worth the time.

    I recommend for fans of fiction, specifically that involving vampires and werewolves.

    A little twist on the vampire saga and to top it off the main characters are female.
    A good entertaining story.
