Darkness Before Dawn
The war is over. The humans lost. And in the shattered world that arises, the vampires are king. They rule over the remaining walled cities with an iron fist, none more terrifying than Lord Valentine. His concern is with blood and blood alone, and seeing that it is ‘donated’ on time.
It’s Dawn Montgomery’s duty to ensure the safety of her fellow humans within the city, but also to serve as Delegate to Lord Valentine. She is the conduit between the two worlds, the human and vampire, and the youngest to ever do so.
But when Lord Valentine’s son, Victor, steps into her life, everything changes. She assumes he wants her blood, like all vampires. But he’s after more: her heart.
She has awoken ...
Denver is in more danger than ever before. Sin is no where to be found, but his Day Walkers run rampant. A new threat rides into the city, and demands Dawn's immediate surrender. And the one person she needs to rely on, Victor, is learning that being the new Lord Valentine requires sacrifices from him ... and from humans.
Dawn is certain she'll find answers, and the city's salvation, in another land. With old friends Tegan and Michael and new allies—Richard, Faith, and legendary vampire hunter Ian Hightower— she must travel by the Night Train across the country, heading toward Los Angeles, the place Sin once claimed he was from.
But the journey is perilous, and the city holds its own secrets ...
And what of the nightmares that are haunting her? Will they vanish with coming day, or will they drive her to the brink of insanity?
After Daybreak brings J. A. London's romantic dystopian Darkness Before Dawn series to a thrilling conclusion.
Dawn grew up behind a wall, terrified of the vampires outside who controlled the lives of humans and demanded their blood. But when she became a delegate for her city and met Victor, she realized that not all vampires were the same, that maybe one could be trusted.
Now Day Walker Sin is infecting his followers with a disease that turns them into mindless killers. Dawn and Victor will have to convince humans and vampires to band together to stop him, because alone they will all die.
After Daybreak is perfect for fans of the YA series Morganville Vampires and the Vampire Diaries.
