Title: Darkness Before Dawn
Author: J.A. London
Book: (Darkness Before Dawn Trilogy, #1)
This is a good book though I do recommend for you to read other books before this one. Some people probably will find it boring but hopefully some will still enjoy it!
Dawn Montgomery is an ambassador for the Agency. A role she was forced into after her parents were murdered by vampires. Now she negotiates the blood supplies for vampires in exchange for the city's protection. Her best friend is Tegan and her wonderful boyfriend is Michael. Everything becomes fairly normal until three rogue vampires attack her and her friend on a trolley.Inside the city! They aren't supposed to be that many inside the city's walls!
Victor is the mysterious guy who saves her and her friend from being killed. She mistakes him for a Night Watchman but he is something far darker. He's a vampire.
He seems to show up when she least expects it and ruins her relationship with Michael. One night she is summoned to Lord Valentine's house (he's the head vampire of their city and is supposed to protect the city) outside the city walls and she learns that Victor is his son. (kind of obvious!)
Anyway she and Victor have to fight vampires that are called Daywalkers (self explanatory!) and the ones consumed by the thirst. (the thirst is where vampires start to turn on each other...to eat!)
As she and Victor try to convince his father Valentine is aware of the attraction between the two of them and plans to exploit it. There is a battle blah blah blah and she goes home only to have a party that is infested with Daywalkers. They turn on the humans and blah blah blah they are disposed of by the Night Watchmen that are still human. Victor saves her etc.
That is pretty much it. Look for the awful review I have on the second book Blood-Kissed Sky.
