The Dawning of Scarlett
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
As a pale revenant—the vampire faction believing all life is sacred—sixteen-year-old Scarlett Ellis has learned to hide in the human world. She goes to night-school, works at a coffee shop, and her uncle Chasem trains her in martial arts. No matter what, she has to be prepared, because when she turns seventeen, she’ll be of Dawning age—and her biological father Apollo vows to see her dead first.
Expecting her Dawning to be impossible, she accepts the fact that she will become a rogue, forever hunted by revenant renegades and outcast by her own people. Scarlett thinks she’s prepared for this—until the curly-haired Nicholas Lightener walks into her life and asks her out on a date.
Torn between her feelings for Nick and the danger of the revenant world, Scarlett’s strange life is turned inside-out when she’s kidnapped and forced to do the one thing she swore she’d never do. Plus, she has no idea whose memories keep appearing in her dreams, or if they can even help her. Determined to free herself from a death sentence, Scarlett must fight to become who she was born to be.
The Dawning of Scarlett will take you to a world you have probably never been before.
Scarlett is a young girl who wants nothing more out of life but to live a “normal life” which to her means having friends and a boyfriend. But Scarlett has been denied these things for most of her life. Scarlett has been trained by her uncle Chasem in martial arts and to always be prepared no matter what. You see in less than a year Scarlett will be seventeen years old and will be of dawning age. But her biological father Apollo will never let her live to see this day if he can stop it. He will never let her dawn.
Chasem has always known that is why he has given his whole to training Scarlett to always be on guard and to always look over her shoulder. Instead of teaching her about the day she dawns and what that consist of he has taught her how to defend herself and to win. He has taught her never to give up no matter what.

I do like reading a good vampire story but I think The Dawning of Scarlett tops that list by a land slide. The Dawning of Scarlett is unlike any vampire novel I have read in the past. The Dawning of Scarlett is fill with a lot of great characters both good and bad that will take you to a world that you have probably never been before. It will reach out and grab a hold of you and will not let go until you have the last page. You will be so immersed in Scarlett’s world that you will think that you are like a shadow following her around. You will feel what she is feeling. Jennifer Osborn knows how to create a story that jumps right off the page at you and swallows you up and spits you out right into Scarlett’s world.
