Liberty Delacort doesn't believe in Vampires. Then she meets the father she never knew, just before his death, and learns she's the last of the Van Helsing bloodline.
Eli, a 300 year old Vampire, doesn't believe Liberty has what it takes to stand between the humans and the Evil Ones on Sang Croc Island, and orders her back to the mainland.
Ryan, a friend of Liberty's late-father, disagrees and insists that Eli provide the promised training.
Now the Full Moon has come and Liberty must stand in the gap. But unbeknownst to her--she's fallen for the wrong vampire.
"An adventure where vampires rule. Liberty is delightful [and] we get a hero and anti-hero. It's tough to choose between the two." ~ Reads and Reviews

Liberty Awakened is the first in a new series by best-selling author Alicia Dean. This is a fun adventure through French Polynesia where vampires rule the island with only a famed Van Helsing hunter to keep them in check. Along comes the innocent and lovely Liberty, who learns of her heritage and her destiny to hunt and kill vampires. We meet Oklahoma native Liberty Delacort shortly after her high school graduation. She appears to be a typical eighteen-year old with a long-term boyfriend and best friend she’s known since grade school. That changes in an instant following a betrayal that cuts Liberty deeply, driving her to follow a path she didn’t even know existed, but one that holds her destiny in its hands. After receiving a package with information on a father she thought long dead, Liberty finds herself traveling to the island of Sang Croc in French Polynesia. There she meets her father and the destiny promised in the mysterious package, tumbling head first into danger, romance, and vampires. This was definitely an entertaining read, with vampires living on a tropical island, lush island locales, a father famous in vampire circles, and the discovery that-surprise!-Liberty has vampire hunter blood running through her veins. Liberty is a delightful, if not naïve, heroine who finds herself caught up in the danger the island offers and, naturally, a love triangle complete with sexy Australian and brooding vampire. While I liked Liberty, she begins the book as a bit of a cliché character, but by the end she really comes into her own, emerging as a strong heroine with insecurities that any of us can relate to. Dean is a prolific writer of romantic suspense and paranormal romance, but this is the first of her books I’ve read outside of the Kindle Worlds program where she’s published, among others, two Vampire Diaries novellas. Her writing style is quick and to the point and just a bit predictable, but her characters whether vampire or human are lively, quick-witted, typically good to look at and always up for a good adventure. I look forward to reading more of Liberty’s adventures in Liberty Divided, book 2 of The Isle of Fangs series.
Liberty is a regular 18 year-old girl who just graduated high school. At least she thinks she's just a regular girl. But after dealing with some high school drama, she receives a letter and a photo with a mysterious invitation to visit a place far away, and she can't resist. Especially after she and her mom have a falling out. The more space Liberty can put between her small town and her, the better. So she takes off for a tropical island. And her life changes big time when she discovers some dark secrets on the island and in her family's past. Alicia Dean's crisp writing style will keep readers turning pages and wanting more. Strong, relatable characters and detailed descriptions of the island. I can't wait to read the next one. Highly recommend.
An interesting take on Vampires and Vampire Hunters "I received this book from eBook Discovery in exchange for an honest review." An interesting tale about Liberty as she comes to terms with who she is and what she must do
I received this book from eBook Discovery in exchange for an honest review. Liberty Delacort is on top of the world! She has just turned 18 and has a great boyfriend, Cam, whom she has loved since the 9th grade. She just graduated from high school and plans to start college in the fall along with her best friend, Alyssa. Then her world crashed around her. How could this have happened? While still mourning her losses, Liberty receives a letter that changes her life forever. Liberty flies from her small-town home in Oklahoma to Sang Crok, French Polynesia! There she meets her father, whom she has always been told was dead…suddenly, her world is laid on its ear! The book has interesting characters, an ingenious plot, and wonderful twists and turns. For a quick read that will leave you wanting more, I recommend “Liberty Awakened”.
