Darkness Before Dawn-- Claire Contreras
Holy hades Batman, this book is dark....... But damn oh damn did I love it!! Second book to There is No Light in Darkness, and by far, even better. We pick up immediately where we left off in book one, after the evil cliffhanger occurs that tore our hearts out of our chests. Here we see just how dark and ugly the lives of Cole and Blake can get, and how desolate they are when separated. It is heart wrenching to read what they have to go through to find their way back to each other, and that they have to face the ultimate loss to get there. This book also delves deeper into the mystery of both of their pasts, as well as how they are intertwined even more than they imagined. New relationships are formed, which sometimes strains, almost breaking old ones. You basically have to see someone start their life over again- after having everything that they believed their life to be- really not be true at all. It is a nice balance of romance and suspense and all out heartbreak. Some of the most heart breaking stuff that I have ever read- and I even read Jacinda Wilder's Falling Into You..... which was the most gut wrenching story ever. I simply loved the story of these people and love even more that they finally got their happy and peaceful ending. 5 stars all the way.
