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

Waiting on Wednesday is a meme hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine, that features future books I'm highly anticipating for this year . 

Darkness Before Dawn

by J.A. London

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.

This book really sounds like one I'll really like. And I absolutely love the cover! And plus I just love vampire books!


  1. The cover is gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous! Kind of reminds me of Fallen. The story sounds good too, but whenever I see "Lord Valentine," I'll just think of the Mortal Instruments series, hahah.
