Summary
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.

  6. Darkness before dawn is just like a story i read on fanfiction! I loved that story so I'll definitely be purchasing this book. The only difference is that the fanfic story used Twilight Characters. Bella was the human that didn't trust vamps. Edward comes along and shows her that not all vamps are bad. They fall in love. I swoon. Lol

    Thanks for stopping by the Bookshelf! :)
