Waiting on Wednesday: Darkness Before Dawn by J.A. London

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

This week's "can't wait to read" selection is:

Darkness Before Dawn by J.A. London
Releases on May 29, 2012

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.

It seems like the new trend in vampire books is "vampires have taken over the world and a few humans must learn how to survive!" And I love it. After reading and loving The Immortal Rules by Julie Kagawa, I'm excited to get my hands on more dystopic vampire fiction!

Thanks for checking out my Waiting on Wednesday!

  1. This sounds really good. I really like this new take on vampires that we currently get in YA (another example would be THE HUNT by Andrew Fukuda) and can't wait to see what this one will be like. :)
