Editorial Reviews

Books With Bite - Savannah Valdez
With an amazing start to this series, I couldn't wait to dive into this one. It gave me what I wanted. A fierce girl fighting her anything and everyone around her...

Red Dawn is a great addition to the series. It's exciting yet the reader is easily able to step right back into the story with no confusion. The small parts of the plot add up to a bigger picture that will be ready to explode in the next book. Red Dawn is passionate and fierce.
A Dream Within A Dream - Stephanie Ward
The story was very well written and the action is fast paced, which made this a real page-turner for me. I got sucked into the book and ended up reading it in one sitting. I really enjoyed every aspect of this book and I'm definitely looking forward to the next book in the series.

    Red Dawn (Crossroads Academy #2) / J.J. Bonds

    This review was originally posted on Big Al's Books and Pals review blog on December 28, 2012

    Things at Crossroads Academy are a little different this school year; there are new handbooks with new rules, new students, and worst of all uniforms. When the formula for the cure to the blood disease, ‘otrava de sange’, is stolen and all evidence points to Shayes’ friend Dr. Phillips, who has also disappeared, Katia calls in a favor from the school’s computer whiz Blaine. With less information than they need, Katia, Nic, and Keegan (Shaye’s boyfriend) take off for New Orleans and beyond, searching for the missing life saving formula that Shaye needs.

    The new fall session at Crossroads Academy starts with Katia and Shaye now sharing a dorm room. Katia has definitely gotten her snark on in this book, her dialogue is very entertaining. Katia has learned to deal with her past over the summer months and has come back stronger and more confident.

    I felt more comfortable with Katia in this book; she is not holding back secrets as she did in the first book. She is head strong and dives into places she has no business being. The plot is full of adventure, intrigue and action as Katia, Nic, and Keegan, who is a mixed-blood vampire and a member of the school staff, take off half-cocked for New Orleans. Keegan seems to be familiar with the dark underbelly of New Orleans as they look for a person called The Shadow who they hear is responsible for the thief. The Shadow is a shifter, who J. J. Bonds has redefined to serve her story. I can not wait to see what she re-invents next. 

    What our group of rescuers uncovers is something they never expected. I could see the foreshadowing of an uprising involving the mixed-blood vampires in future books.

    I was pleased to see Katia face the one biggest fear she has in this story. It will take a while as she struggles to get a good hold on it, but she is trying. I did find it difficult to believe that the Elders Council failed with all their resources where these kids succeeded. But I believe this happened because our young vampires were more focused on clearing Dr. Phillips of this theft, despite the evidence, rather than hunting him down. This is an entertaining series that is better suited for older teens because of mildly offensive language.

    FYI:  Some mild language that some parents might not find suitable for younger teens. I found no significant errors or issues.

    When I read Crossroads, I felt that Katia was keeping everyone at arm’s length, even me as a reader. But when Red Dawn starts, everyone is returning from a summer break, and it seemed that summer break did her well. She came back to school no longer the loner kid. She was excited to see her BFF Shaye and see where things stand with Nik. Katia hasn't talked to him all summer long so she doesn't know if he still feels the same for her. So yeah, I really liked Katia more in Red Dawn.

    Also, in my review of Crossroads I asked for a little more romance. And when you ask, you shall receive. (Yes I know she had already written Red Dawn before I asked, but play along with me ok?) Although it wasn't a crazy amount, I still got little snippets here and there to make me a happy reader.

    One other thing that I just adored was Katia's relationship with Shaye. With everything that goes on in this book the reader can tell that Shaye came first with Katia. Katia wouldn't take her focus off of her best friend and was doing everything possible to find that cure. I love that kind of friendship in books.

    With Red Dawn, I felt the author was a little more relaxed and confident in her writing. I really liked this book a lot better than the first with everything that goes on. I loved the journey the characters took this time around and thought it was much more interesting. People who love a good action read will definitely enjoy this series. Red Dawn is a fast paced read, so keep don't want to miss a thing!
