Goodreads Synopsis:

Dawn has come, a time for heroes to rise. 

Draco has lived long and felt the pain of loss more than anyone in one lifetime could imagine. Immortality was given to him as a gift, a gift that failed him and turned him into a shell of the man that has nothing left but to wait out the end of existence alone. 

Until her. 
Rose is an empath who sees more than who Draco is supposed to be: she sees him, and what they could be. 
Together, they will begin the search for others with extraordinary powers, to stop a war that’s been brewing for over a millennia. 
The journey is only beginning, and an unnamed enemy has started to make his mark on their world. 
The dawn of heroes has finally arrived. 
Only time will tell if it’s too late to defeat the upcoming darkness of night that now descends upon all of mankind.

Book Review:
Pre-reading Thoughts:

I follow the author on instagram and I love the way that her books look. They are aesthetically pleasing and they sound pretty cool. I also decided that I would take a chance and see if I could grab a copy from Social Butterfly PR.

Thank you so much to Social Butterfly PR for sending me a copy of this book to review! Just a small disclaimer for those reading this review. I have received this book to review. Please note that this does not affect my opinion in any way. All thoughts are my own.

Writing Thoughts:

I really enjoyed the author's writing. It was good and easy to get into. The dialogue was a bit awkward in the beginning but it did even out a little bit later in the book. The author would also sometimes attach a lot of imagery to one thing but not enough on another thing.

Plot Thoughts:

The book was long but the plot just flew by. It wasn't that the events happened too fast, although the first "action" scene with the three main characters did, I was just addicted to the story. I just wanted to know what happened next. There was a lot that the author could have fleshed out but at the end of the day, the book was really good.

Character Thoughts:

Ugh!! I loved Rose and Draco. They definitely had an insta-love situation but honestly I was there for it. The characters were a bit underdeveloped but they did grow as the book went along. I think that overtime they will become round characters. 

Final Thoughts:

Overall, I was genuinely surprised by this. I thought I wouldn't really enjoy the story but I was surprised by how much I did like it. There were definitely some areas that weren't perfect but as a debut book for the author, it was really good. A lot of things that I picked up on were common first time mistakes that can be fixed with practice. The writing was good and drew you in but the dialogue could be awkward at times. The plot just flew by and in one case it felt like a scene needed to be a bit more fleshed out. The characters did lack some dimension but they were all interesting. This book is not suitable for young readers as there are some explicit scenes. I really liked this book and I cannot wait to see how the characters grow in the next book. Thank you so much to Social Butterfly PR for providing me with a copy fo this book.

Yours in Reading,
