Review: Darkness before Dawn (Darkness before Dawn #1)

Only sunlight can save us.
We built the wall to keep them out, to keep us safe. But it also makes us prisoners, trapped in what's left of our ravaged city, fearing nightfall.
After the death of my parents, it's up to me--as the newest delegate for humanity--to bargain with our vampire overlord. I thought I was ready. I thought I knew everything there was to know about the monsters. Then again, nothing could have prepared me for Lord Valentine . . . or his son. Maybe not all vampires are killers. Maybe it's safe to let one in.
Only one thing is certain: Even the wall is not enough. A war is coming and we cannot hide forever.

 It took a little while for this book to make it to the top of my read & review pile. By the time it did, I was ready for a good Vamp story with bite. This book fits that description perfectly. I really like the way the story takes off with action & mystery and never slows down. There is a very mysterious feel to the story. The main character is fiesty and funny. Filled with action, excitement and Good vs. Evil. The farther you get into the story the more you wonder ʺJust exactly who are the Good Guys?ʺ. The writting style had me completely absorbed till the wee hours of the morning. The strong and complicated storyline is twistingly exciting, and WOW what a shocker... This book has made it into my top 20 favorites. I can not wait to get my hands on the rest of the trilogy!! If you've been away from Vamps for awhile and would like a good book to come back to, this is the book for you. Enjoy!

  1. I'm reading this right now and so far it's pretty good!

  2. I'm taking a break from Vamps but I remember a deluge of cover reveal for the next book in the series, I guess it's really good!
