Darkness Before Dawn Review

Leave a comment

5 of 5 stars false

Yes! Vampires who are doing what we all know they ought to be doing – controlling the world, corralling humans within walled cities, effectively creating human-blood-bank farms. If you’ve ever wondered why beings with such phenomenal power and ability would do otherwise then this is the book for you. And yes, there is romance and it is believable. Forget the regular high-school scenario of new girl/boy sees their soulmate, this is far more realistic…except, uh, with vampires.
Dawn (ironic:Vampires have to hide from the dawn?) is the new delegate trying to forge better relations between the vamps and humans. Her boyfriend Michael is training to be a vamp-killer, her best friend Tegan (who all the boys love) finds herself falling for the strange new boy. Then, Dawn meets Lord Vamp’s son – I won’t tell you his name for it will just give the game away.
Ooh, some sneaky surprises are in store towards the end.
I really enjoyed the story, the writing was delightful and not overtly sweet or overtly self-absorbed and the characters were just a teeny bit flawed.
Nicely done Mr/s London. Can’t wait for Bk 2.

I am a wild-haired author who cannot stop writing. The writing process is not a task for me. It is an extension of myself. When I write I lose myself as easily as if I slipped into the story for a swim. Writing became a serious part of my life in Decmber of 2009. Unless you're reading this in 2014 it wasn't that long ago, and the bug hit me hard and fast. My first novel, Banished, was published in March 2010 and is available at If you read it, or anything else I've written, I hope you'll post a review and let me know why you lied it - or even why not!
