Goodreads Synopsis

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 .

The whole concept of this book blows my mind. I guess that I have never given much thought to vampires taking over. You always see the stories over vampires hiding in the shadows or trying to mask their existence. It will be a whole new reading experience to see it the other way around.
And you know me. I need to have that romance in my books. A world of monsters with one being the exception? Count me in! Can't wait!

What are you waiting for??

This one looks soo pretty, i agree, it does look like Fallen. It's pretty amazing. Thanks for sharing it, I hadn't heard about this one.

It's very spooky to think vampires would take over. But I'd like to think they'd be too self interested to actually get their act together (just look at the Occupy Movement!). Awesome book idea though. Will check it out.

PS. I am your Bookworm Secret Santa! I hope you had a fabulous holiday and that Eden and Blood Red Road are an awesome read.
