Loved all the characters in this story, befors, heroine, evil villain vampire lords who still think the Victorian era is the way to gobest friends, evil vampire day-walkers and back from the dead brothers.
There is one train that goes through and it is like a huge event when it comes to town.
Not quite a five star book but pretty dang close! And there was one event that really made me angry: Victor is unlike any vampire Dawn has ever met.
Darkness Before Dawn
I was pissed that Old Perv kissed Dawn and told her how much he cares about her and how he wants her, only for him to turn around a few hours later and say that they can’t be together.
I hate it when the authors do that. And with a limited supply of blood, the starving vampires outside those walls are getting more desperate and keeping them out is becoming more challenging than ever. Mysterious, hot and a vampire. However, that would not have been such a disappointment if Dawn hadn’t been such a dull heroine.
And she can’t really blame him for that since she herself hated vampires up until Victor started grooming her. Apr 16, Khanh, first of her name, mother of bunnies rated it liked it Shelves: First things that I did like: There is a love triangle, which while I am not a big fan of them I have come to almost expect them in YA novels. Never did, but certainly don’t anymore.
I mean, like, ending right in the middle of a scene. Let me start with the world-building. Yet like Celaenaher mad ninja skills never come in use when they’re needed. The author wanted the gravitas and romanticism of the Victorian times but couldn’t even give a good enough reason for infusing Victorian-esque customs into the story. It added a new element to the Vampire Genre with the Thirst! But the disappointment didn’t last long, because shortly after I realized that series was over, I got wind of this upcoming release and couldn’t have been more excited to see what the mother-son team was capable of.
Alas, we’ll have to wait until Christmas What pulled me out of the story at various times during the read was some of the writing and character development. In this futuristic dystopian society in which humanity is reeling from a past war with Vampires that humans lost.
It had enough action and suspense to keep me reading. However, the predictable and stereotypical teen drama ruined it for me. She fights as best she can and suddenly hears fighting elsewhere. Even though I love me some sexy vamps when I’m reading a paranormal romance, when it comes to YA the notion of friendly vamps that don’t have to drink human blood has been overdone and I like this new direction we seem to be heading.
The ending was a definite cliffhanger.
Darkness Before Dawn Trilogy by J.A. London
I recently read The Mortal Instrumentsin which the head bad guy is also named Valentine. Now the job falls to Dawn to become the new delegate. And of course Michael wouldn’t want to give blood since he hates vampires.
Why the hell did he even tell her all that in the first place?? Written beautifully, I am able to step into a world of darkness and full of blood driven vampires.
So here we are in Denver, and our heroine Dawn is the new .ja.london to the leader of the local vampires, Lord “Bloody” Valentine. Dawn is not some stupid girl. I realize vampires are basically non-existent nowadays but to me a vampire book is like chicken noodle soup when you have a cold, it’s just good for the soul.
