    Possibly the most disappointing ending to a series I've ever rea

    Possibly the most disappointing ending to a series I've ever read. There were so many events set up and carried over from the second book, yet in stead of exploring or resolving those events, the author ignored them, and chose to end the series on an abrupt, frankly cliche happily-ever-after. The "climax" was lackluster and really had nothing to do with the rest of the series, and it felt like the villain was taken out of character to make it happen. It was as if the author got bored or rushed and decided she didn't want to properly develop and wrap things up. For something that had such a strong start, this truly was a sloppy conclusion.

    Satisfying Continuation of the Series

    This third installment helped fill in a number of the questions from the second book, and was a satisfying read in itself.

    4.5 Stars

    After Daybreak has exceeded my expectations, and was more then I could of ever imagined! When I read Darkness before Dawn, the first book in this trilogy, I was hooked! This series captivated me, called to me, and stolen my heart! The desire, devotion, and determination of Dawn's character just captured my heart and sucked me in! She wanted an new way for her people and vampires alike. She wanted them to be able to live as one. Forge an alliance, and except each other for who they are. And she was determined to see it happen one way or another...

    This series is definitely one of my all time favorites, and will live in my heart from years to come! As always the writing was captivating, addicting, and heart-throbbing! After Daybreak has everything a reader could possibly want and more! It had action, adventure, twist and turns, loyalty, war, an amazing plot, and of course a juicy ROMANCE! It was amazing, with surprises around every corner. When I thought it couldn't get anymore amazing then it was, then BAM, I was tossed another crazy thing I didn't see coming! Phew...I mean this series is definitely one of a kind, and I am so sad to see it end! Why does it have to be a trilogy, WHY? Why couldn't it have like 6 or more books?? I would read them ALL!!

    Anyways here's the Plot:

    This book picks up exactly where book 2 left off. With Dawn and Micheal fleeing the mountain top to escape from the manic Day-walker Sin, and his insane desire to conquer the world with his infected vampires, the Ones called The Chosen Ones. The Chosen Ones are infected with the Thirst by drinking Vampires blood, not human blood! It drives them insane, eating away at their brain until their body becomes uncontrollably strong, with razor-sharp teeth that form where their fangs once were. Sin, the ruler and creator of all Day-walkers, has been drinking the blood of his Day-walkers for years. Sitting in the shadows, waiting for the blood to take effect and consume him, so he can become infected. The Chosen Ones are stronger, faster, and unstoppable to any Day-walker, lesser-vampires, human and even the Old family. His time is near, his plan is in motion, and his Day-walkers are in place, all he needs is the blood to fully take effect. Then he can become infected and run through Vampire cities, and take them over one by one, until he's conquered them all!

    As Dawn and Micheal race down the mountain to escape Sin they realize Micheal is injured badly, and in need of serious medical attention. If not he might not make it back to Denver alive. Just when all is but lost, they come across a town willing to help them. In this town they find something they never could of imagined. A new beginning! A new way for vampires and humans to live in peace with each other! And they think maybe, just maybe, all is not lost and they can all live as one!

    With the newly discovered information that Dawn and Micheal found while in L.A. they start planing immediately on how to take down Sin and his army of Day-walkers and Chosen Ones! But they can't do it alone. They need the help of Old Family if their going to be able to put and ended to the Thirst and take down Sin and his Army. The Chosen Ones are strong, stronger then Old Family. So they have their work cut out for them if their going to succeed.

    Dawn is still struggling with the fact that she has Vampire blood racing their her veins. And that the Montgomery's might very well be the lost family on the Vampire tree. But the most scariest part about it all, is that she might very well be related to the most evilest thing on earth, Sin! Oh, and theirs still the problem of the death warrant out for any living Montgomery's! So if she's revealed to the Old Family, and they still want the death warrant fulfilled, then she might not make it out alive! She has to deal with all this while preparing to take down Sin, and keeping her feelings for Victor in check. And she thought it couldn't get any worse, She was wrong!

    The odds are against them, and if they don't get help from The Old Family soon, and come up with something fast, then Sin will get what he wants and take over, and make the terrible world that they live in now seem like paradise to the new world that Sin will create!

    I loved it, Truly an EPIC Series that will have the reader staying up late and craving more! This series ended on a perfect level with enough closer, even though I would of liked more of the New World Order but it was enough that I can except that its over!

    Perfect!!!

    The Darkness Before Dawn series is honestly in my top 3. Its so action packed and suspenseful and romantic. And its not often that the main character is as strong and confident as Dawn, which is refreshing to read. This was a great final installment. Woudnt change a thing. I highly recommend this read.
