3 Books (Trilogy) by J.A. London

I finally finished the whole story! Three books total!

Book 1

At seventeen, Dawn Montgomery knows that monsters really do come out at night—after all, they are her job. It’s just after the thirty-years war between vampires and humans, and as an ambassador between the two sides (a role she inherited when her parents were killed), Dawn quickly learns that balancing schoolwork, teen life, and the requests of Lord Valentine, the most frightening vampire in the region, isn’t easy.

And it only gets more complicated when she forms a tentative friendship with Victor, the mysterious stranger who rescued her from a hoard of vampires…only to discover that not only is Victor a vampire, but that he is Lord Valentine’s son.

Soon Dawn is struggling to remember that with everything on the line, she can’t afford to fall for the enemy…

Book 2

Dawn Montgomery knows that monsters really do come out at night—after all, they are her job. It’s just after the thirty-year war between vampires and humans, and as an ambassador between the two sides (a role she inherited when her parents were killed), Dawn quickly learns that balancing schoolwork, teen life, and the requests of Lord Valentine, the most frightening vampire in the region, isn’t easy.

There’s nowhere left to hide. I thought vampires were our enemies—they controlled our lives, isolated our cities, and demanded our blood—until I met Victor. With Victor taking over as the new Lord Valentine, things were supposed to get better. Instead, they’re worse than ever.

Day Walkers, a new breed of vampires who can walk in the sun, are terrorizing the city. Blood supplies are low, and if Victor’s vampires don’t get enough, they will become infected with the Thirst—a disease that will turn them into mindless killers.

To stop it, I must journey across the desolate wasteland to the very place where the sickness began. I can only hope that the answers that await me are enough to save us all…before it’s too late.

Book 3

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.

My Review:
I gave these books a shot and I actually liked it. I think there are other reviews out there that thought the story was okay. As I said before I like to focus on books that capture my attention. This story did. I wanted to know what was going to happen to Dawn. I wanted to know about her friends, her relationship with the vampires and what Victor was all about. Although I did want to beat Victor’s father.

I liked how Dawn was always thinking of things and that she seemed very mature for her age. She even risks her life for her friends and her goal. I think Dawn is a character who knows what is right and is trying to do the right thing. She shows compassion, is ready to fight and tries to help in any way she can.

I liked her friends : Michael and Teagan. Then down the road meeting Ian, Faith and Richard. There’s a whirlwind of characters that just seem to sit well with the story.

Victor and Dawn – they’re sweet with each other. It’s a nice aspect in the story. I think they just click really well. It’s not like a major smooching kiss love explosion. To me it seems like a slow burn with them. I think their relationship will last.

Sin who is the villain of the story is just lost. Due to how he was raised and cast aside, he has lost himself to madness, revenge and darkness. He plots and goes after his plan. I don’t like him. Dawn does try to give him a chance but sadly he is too far gone. Does Sin succeed or no with his plan? Who will survive?

These books are a good way to escape what’s going on around you. As I said I like reading vampire fiction/YA/fantasy if the story stays with me.
