Darkness Before Dawn Review

342 pages

This electrifying new trilogy blends the best of paranormal and dystopian storytelling in a world where the war is over. And the vampires won. Humans huddle in their walled cities, supplying blood in exchange for safety. But not even that is guaranteed. Dawn has lost her entire family and now reluctantly serves as the delegate to Lord Valentine, the most powerful vampire for miles. It isn’t until she meets Victor, Valentine’s son, that she realizes not all vampires are monsters....

Sometimes I think there are too many vampire novels. Then I read books like this and realize that there are still new ways of presenting them out there. Dawn isn't necessarily the best heroine ever. Dawn isn't an amazing fighter or the bravest person in the room. However, Dawn has an amazing heart and strength of character. The two men in Dawn's life are similar in their desire to protect her but that's where the similarities end. Michael is human and strong and brave, but a little too brave at times. Victor is loving, strong, and a genuine good person, except he's not a person but a vampire. The story moved at a great pace and kept me interested in every new development that was thrown my way. There were a few slightly predictable points but there were also some huge unexpected twists. I definitely enjoyed this novel and I can't wait to read the next one. I would recommend this to anyone who likes vampire novels and paranormal fiction.
