There’s nowhere left to hide. I thought vampires were our enemies – they controlled our lives, isolated our cities, and demanded our blood – until I met Victor. With Victor taking over as the new Lord Valentine, things were supposed to get better. Instead, they’re worse than ever. Day Walkers, a new breed of vampires who can walk in the sun, are terrorizing the city. Blood supplies are low, and if Victor’s vampires don’t get enough, they will become infected with the Thirst – a disease that will turn them into mindless killers. To stop it, I must journey across the desolate wasteland to the very place where the sickness began. I can only hope that the answers that await me are enough to save us all… before it’s too late.
I enjoyed this one as much as the first which is a somewhat new experience. I usually either prefer book 2 or dislike it, but Blood-Kissed Sky was a great follow up to Darkness Before Dawn. We get to no more about the Vampires as well as see Dawn and the other characters mature and start to figure out who they are. The only thing I disliked about the book was Dawn and Victor’s relationship. Are they together or not? Dawn talks like they are, but they aren’t. And Victor is turning out to be as bad as his father, but in different ways. I’m really not sure how I feel about him at this point. I’m hoping he redeems himself in the next book. I predicted the Los Angeles twist as well as another twist in the book, apparently the only people who didn’t see it coming were the characters in the book. I’m looking forward to seeing how the trilogy ends in After Daybreak (which is already downloaded from the library and waiting for me to start reading it.)
