Synopsis (goodreads): 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....
Darkness Before Dawn is a fresh new story with captivating characters, unexpected plot twists, a fascinating setting, and a compelling voice. Written under the name J. A. London by a talented mother-son team, the trilogy is perfect for fans of True Blood and the House of Night and Morganville Vampires series.
Why I need this: I'm a huge fan of paranormal and dystopian novels and this book is both!! It just sounds so intriguing and a little scary to think of a world where vampires rule the world. Where they're the predators and we're the prey, living in constant fear that at any moment we could be next. And of course there's a guy to change the girls view of the world and make her fall in love (I'm assuming!). And just look at that cover. It's gorgeous. It was the cover that initially drew me in to read the synopsis, and now I simply must have it.
What are you waiting on this Wednesday??
