Review: Dahlia (Blood Crave #1) by Christina Channelle

What would you do if your dreams were more than just dreams?
When you knew in the depths of your soul that you were unlike the rest?
For seventeen-year-old Dahlia Winters, this is her truth. Her coping mechanism is to simply forget and deny the strangeness that is her life. Orphaned, her past remains a mystery. Now residing with a foster family, she finally feels normal--or attempts to. Yet, dreams continue to torment her. Not only consumed by visions of miraculously healing wounds, but of a lust for something she should never naturally crave.
Then a green-eyed stranger enters her life echoing her inner thoughts and voicing warnings about others wanting to harm her. He knows things about her that no one should possibly know, and he awakens her in ways she never expected.
This leads Dahlia to discover who she really is, for she is more than just human. With this newfound knowledge, and the elements suddenly fighting against her, she finds it hard to trust anyone. And as she finally awakens and comes to grips with the power she possesses, she fights to stay alive.
Before the world, as she knows it, ceases to exist.
 I really enjoyed reading this book. It was a refreshing new look at this genre. Not the typical ʺfish out of waterʺ tale. I liked the way the Author allows the main character to find each puzzle piece at precisely the right moment. Keeping the storyline fresh and mysterious. Her existence has always been a mystery to her. One that I was interested in watching the main character figure out. With the help of some unexpected allies. Very complex & thorough writting. It's hard for me to accept that this is the first for this author. I can't wait to finish the series. The storyline has a completely new take on the whole vampire origins thing. There is never a dull moment in this paranormal fantasy. This is a wonderful start to a highly recommendable series. Not at all your average vampire/angel book. Hope you enjoy the ride as much as I did! Happy Reading!!!
