Waiting on Wednesday (69) — Darkness Before Dawn by J.A. London

“Waiting On” Wednesday spotlights upcoming releases that everyone’s excited about (created by Jill at Breaking The Spine.)

Darkness Before Dawn

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

Darkness Before Dawn will be released on May 29th, 2012 by HarperTeen.

What are you waiting on this Wednesday?

    The cover alone is stunning!

    I'm growing a bit tired of Vampires, but this sounds like an interesting spin on them.

    Stop by and see what I'm Waiting On this Wednesday!!

    MUST HAVE THIS! I agree with Lauren that the cover looks like the Fallen books, but that's okay, because those are gorgeous and this one is as well. As long as the story is different which clearly it will be based on the blurb:)

    I've been looking forward to this one for a while. This one seems like it will be darker than most of Rachel Hawthorne's books.
