  • A must-have for YA fantasy fans!

    I received a free copy of this book with the option of leaving an honest review. I found myself liking Jessica more in this book than in the previous books. Upon discovering her destiny, Jessica really comes into her own and steps up to the plate to make a tough decision. Jessica's destiny and role in the prophecy were incredibly well thought out and executed. I figured that she and the other characters had overlooked something about the prophecy, and I was surprised by the twist that Thompson gave it. However, the prophecy and Jessica's destiny aren't the only surprises in store for readers. Thompson reveals more about Eric's mother, Darthon's identity, and there are even more surprises that I won't mention to keep from spoiling the book. Everything was flawlessly executed in this book: the characters, the dialogue, the setting, the clean romance, the intriguing plot, the final battle; all of it! Thompson has taken a standard trope in YA fantasy and put a really compelling and unique spin on it. I enjoyed every second of this book and had a hard time putting it down! Death Before Daylight and "The Timely Death Trilogy" by Shannon A. Thompson is a must-have for YA fantasy fans of books written by Stephanie Meyer and Cassandra Clare!

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Great Trilogy

    Characters Just like the first two books, this one continues on with great character development, realistic attitudes and believable emotion. The characters are a major success for this trilogy and I think the author should be proud of her work. A large part of the storyline (for all three books, so not a spoiler!) are the hidden identities of people in the Dark and the Light. These identities were well written and some of them were complete surprises for me once they were revealed. There were times when I thought I knew who they were, picking up on different hints, only to realise I had been misled. I enjoy surprises! Plot The plot for book 3 was not quite what I was expecting, but I am glad it did not end up being predictable. There would have been an easy way out for the ending but I think it took a deeper, more meaningful path instead. It left me feeling a mixture of emotions. I found myself impatient with the pace during the start, since I could not tell where the story was heading. I did not quite understand some of the character decisions but I developed an understanding for them later in the book. Eric had some limitations that I feel could have been explained more because I found myself thinking of ways he could get around it. I have no doubt there would have been an explanation as to why these ways would not have worked, but it would have been nice to read a little more detail just to be sure. World Many of the locations were quite familiar from the first two books, though, as I mentioned in my other reviews, I would have liked more description for them. I found the Light realm a little confusing. I am not quite sure I grasped the image properly. The basic concept was really interesting though. I am not sure why there was a Light realm but not a Dark realm. The Dark had their own place to go, but it seemed completely different. Grammar and Writing This was another well written book. I did not come across any typos or errors, though I am also not sure I would have picked up on them if they were there. I was so focused on finding out what happened that I could have easily missed something. Overall I am definitely glad that I picked up this series again. Some of you may recall that I read book 1 a few years ago and had not had the change to continue. It was always on the back of my mind though. Now that it’s over though, I find myself disappointed that there is not another one to read. I really enjoyed the unique descriptions of the Dark and Light and how they went against the stereotypes. This is definitely a series I would recommend to urban fantasy lovers. I look forward to reading more from Shannon A. Thompson. I also think she should consider writing a book about the history of the Dark and Light realms. It was talked about during the trilogy but I would absolutely love to read it in detail.

    Thanks for your feedback!
