Overview

Their mission was to save the world.
Their destiny is to fall in love.
 
Twelve years since the Change, Penelope Sheehan is one of the few still practicing magic for the good of humanity. To infiltrate the notorious O’Malley organization, Pen poses as an abducted girl—until a furious lion thwarts her mission. When the beast turns into a devastatingly handsome man, she recognizes in him the troubled boy she once knew.
 
Since becoming a skinwalker, Tru Daugherty has allowed his animal nature to take over. Aloof and cynical, he’s a creature of instinct and impulse, living only to satisfy his senses—ignoring the scarred heart nobody has ever reached. He’s also the best man to help Pen bring down the O’Malley crime ring.
 
Fighting alongside the last holdouts of humanity, they unleash a passion that tempts them to risk everything for love. But if they succeed, Tru and Pen hold the power to brighten the Dark Age for all time.

This series really grabbed me as I had not read anything by Ellen Connor before. I hope this author/s continue with more stories like these. The characters are very well developed and you find yourself rooting for them. I like who Tru turned into after his part in the original story.

My Review: This is the final book in the post-apocalyptic series by the writing team of Ann Aguirre and Carrie Lofty. This has been a wonderful series of books and I was NOT disappointed by this final book. In this book, we revisit Tru and Penny (now Pen) twelve years after they first appeared in Nightfall at the ages of 15 and 9 respectively (if I am remembering correctly.) They haven't seen each other in years. It is just a matter of fate that throws them in one another's path and unfortunately the years apart have been harsh for both of these people. There is a certain fatalistic approach to how both of them live their lives. This new world is such a harsh one and as it stands at the beginning of the book, neither one of them honestly has a reason to live. They are simply surviving. It's such a harsh reality for the sweet kids that we got to know in book #1. Tru has been devastated by caring before and when Pen's mother died right after the change she forgot how to care in self-defense. It is easier and safer not to care for each of them. That is why this is such a beautiful love story. As they learn to open themselves up to each other, you can't help but cheer and hope for them. Even the name of the novel, Daybreak, shows a new hope as they help this new world transition into one worth living in. And that is what this book is about. It's about establishing a new society about the whole rather than the individual as they emerge from the horror of the last twelve years. Pen and Tru are instrumental in that change. Overall, this is a very serious novel, but there are wonderful moments of brevity provided by Tru's inner-lion who honestly feels that Tru would be better off with a pride of six women to serve him. LOL! I really loved those little internal talks between the two of them! It was fun to see that little bit of humor added into the story. Like I said, this was the perfect ending to this series. I know that this is supposed to be the end, but I am really hoping that someday we will see a short novella about the people that the three books focused on finding each other again. Each book is completely a stand-alone novel, but all the characters started out in this crazy journey together. It would be nice to see some sort of reunion among them.
