4.0 out of 5 stars A new twist on the paranormal genre, 4 Jun 2012
By 
This review is from: Cameron's Law (The Adelheid Series Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Supernatural Mix of Sub-Genres, 10 Jan 2012

This review is from: Cameron's Law (The Adelheid Series Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
I read a short story by Mia Darien in the anthology, Wake Up Dead, and wanted to read more of her work. Cameron's Law didn't disappoint. As a matter of fact, it was refreshing to read a paranormal crime novel with supernatural characters that did not rely on gore and sex to propel the storyline. Darien actually took the time to write quality thriller with an abundance of nail-biting mystery and suspense.

Preternatural Expert Advisor, Sadie Stanton has opened her own agency to provide paranormal services and help supernatural citizens adjust to a more public life. She is also a vampire, and a major proponent of Cameron's Law, which gives rights to vampires, werewolves, and other species. She is assisted by a werewolf, Madison. The interaction between these two characters and others in their office pulled me into the story from the beginning of the novella. I was very eager to learn more about the fascinating world that Darien created; I have a serious appreciation for authors who fashion the settings before the characters, without relying on elaborate set-ups.

Detective Vance Johnston is a shape-shifter investigating recent attacks on werewolves by vampires. Concerned that the unrest will undo Cameron's Law, Vance and Sadie work with the leaders of the Pack and Coven to find out what has triggered the unsanctioned violence between the species. In the process, Sadie is framed for the murders of a slayer and a shifter, but she finds help in the unlikely form of a Hunter named Dakota.

The story is followed by a Guide to the Preternatural, which includes information on the array of characters within Cameron's Law: vampires, shape-shifters/shifters/were-creatures, humans with paranormal abilities (animators, necromancers, summoners, and psychics), and lesser-known species (theriomorph, fae & daemons).

I can't wait to read more by Darien!

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Cameron's Law (The Adelheid Series Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
If you are a fan of True Blood and the series it was based on you should find this book right up your street.Its not a copycat but its a new world where vampires, weres, shifters etc are out in the open,this was a recent event and is not to everyones liking.This is the first in the series and introduces some great characters, I especially like the fact that there are so many strong female characters I really enjoyed it, and am excited to find a new series I like so much, already downloaded the next book and can't wait to read it.
