Mia Carrington has finally done the very thing she was destined to do all along—she's broken the curse on the Dark Elves.

In order to make up for her mistake, Mia has chosen to make the ultimate sacrifice: her mortal life. The Dark Elves are now wreaking havoc on the mortal world while the Light Elves are trying to gain alliances.

It seems now that Dugan has come into full

I can’t believe the Lark trilogy has come to a conclusion. I’m sitting here wondering what I’m going to do now that I’m done reading LIKE THE DAWN. First of all, I want to cry because I love this trilogy so much. Second of all, I want to cheer because the book ended exactly how I wanted it to. Erica Cope did such a wonderful job of wrapping up the trilogy, but leaving enough loose ends to make us wonder what is going to happen to the characters next.
Mia has grown up so much in this book. I’m ama

The final installment in the "Lark" trilogy is full of fun, action and pulls no punches. There are some hilarious new characters and a resolution to unanswered questions. There's a battle at the end that is realistic and people you care for suffer. I love this fun series and am very glad it ended the way that it did :) Can't wait for Erica's next book!

There is so much left in Mia's story and every last part of it will leave you on the edge of your seat ready for what's next. Check out this exciting ending to see how Mia and team take on Dugan and his army if Dark Elves to save her new world.

Mia is still reeling from having been tricked into releasing the dark elves from their curse. She is further frustrated by the lack of urgency from the council of light elves. On top of that she is still trying to choose between Grey and Jacoby and the council have thrown two more into the mix hoping she will marry another heir to form an alliance.

This was just very lackluster. Mia kept tripping over herself, literally, as a former cheerleader you would think she would have enough grace to not f

Like the Dawn is the last book in the Lark Trilogy. Just like the previous books, Like the Dawn is action-packed. The Dark Elves are plotting to take over the kingdom of the light elves, while the light elves are trying to figure-out how to stop them.

Mia is now a different person. She had to give-up her human family and Jacoby, deal with her feelings for Grey, and put up with the royals from the other kingdoms. She is doing all of that while trying to get the light elves to figure-out that in or

I want to first start off by saying that I love this series. Although Like the Dawn wasn't my favorite in the series it was a great ending to a wonderful trilogy.

Cope created a world that I enjoying loosing myself in. Her characters were believable and they made you feel for them. I was personally team Jacoby and that just goes to show how real these characters are written.

The ending was perfect. Although there was loss and I cried over all it ended the way I wanted it too, but I won't give th

A perfect ending to an amazing trilogy!

I have loved every minute of getting to know all of the characters that exist in Mia’s world. I have been emotionally invested in every single one of them since the very beginning and absolutely loved the new players introduced in this last installment.

This book was definitely my favorite of the three…although there was obvious drama regarding the impending war, I found myself cracking up constantly with the fun, lighthearted interactions between Mia and

Wow! This book! I think this is my favorite in the series. Besides Mia's whining half the time, anyway.
And I am totally in love with Jacoby. He is so sweet, hot and adorable! And I just KNEW that they were soul mates, meant for each other. I am so very happy about the ending, except one sad death that should not have happened so soon. I am not saying anything so I won't be spoiling it for you. But be warned to be shocked and a bit sad in the end.
I also liked Klaus. He was actually ki

Mia's world has been completely changed. She's not the girl she was in book one. We watch as she struggles to find herself in this new life and protect those around her. While she loves, she is not a slave to it, which is so refreshing. Imagine that, a heroine with a soft heart who is not ruled by it, who continues to think clearly and strategize to ensure the safety of her people. That said, the romance elements add a nice touch, and the romantic in me sighed happily when I read the Epilogue. I ...more

I have loved the Lark series and I couldn't think of a better way to end the trilogy then this. I loved the writing style, character development, and plot line through out this entire series. Erica Cope creates a world of fantasy and intrigue that sucks you in from the first page.
I adore Mia, Jacoby, Grey, Klaus, and Hugo, and really lets be honest... everyone else! The only thing that would have made the book better was if there were more fight scenes or a longer last battle. However, I really

There is only one word to describe this series. Stunning. I was hooked from the very beginning on all things Alfheimr! It will forever be it my list of fictional places I want to go to, along with hogwarts, panem and The Gallagher Academy.

This book brought together everything that the series is about; Kingdoms, balls, boys and battles. And even though I sobbed like a child when certain elves I dare not mention end up something I dare not mention I would happily read them all again because it wa

Lots of waiting around, being kind of diplomatic, not really preparing for every eventuality, not really doing anything again...? Then the final battle was just soooo anticlimactic. It was a cute story, it had lots of interesting world building ideas, it was just missing tons of oomph. Then the resolution of Mia, Greyson & Jacoby was lacking as well. I really don't understand the point of ...more

Open ended?

I really enjoyed this series right from the beginning, seeing Mia really grow up and come into her own against all the obstacles that where in front of her was satisfying and entertaining. As for Mia's love interest, in the end there really is just one choice for her as she struggles to find her footing in her new world. My one criticism is that the ending felt rushed and that may have been by design as there appears to be a story in the works that will include Grey and hopefully some

I am so happy to finally have had the chance to see what happens in this final installment of the Lark trilogy. I must say that Erica Cope did a wonderful job bringing it all together in the end. my only problem with this book was the battle at the end seemed way too short. it's like the battle was only 5 minutes long and Dark Elves would be much more powerful than they seemed in this book. Granted both sides are powerful in their own ways which is another reason they battle should have lasted l ...more

Holy hell! What a way to end a series let alone a book! I was about to to write a nasty ranty message to Erica saying how mean she is, until I read the acknowledgments. I'm glad to hear that this is not the end for the characters of the Lark series, especially Grey. Team Greyson all the way! It made me want to throw my iPad across the room in the way I threw Mockingjay. It was heartbreaking and thrilling and I just couldn't put it down until I finished it.

This book was ok. I found the lack of detail really irritating. I mean, I was able to start and finish this book in about two hours. I still like the characters but the whole "war" was comically easy to win. They have been battling for centuries? It seemed way too easy. I like how the series started but it just fizzled out and left too many things unfinished.

Wow! What a fantastic finish for a fantastic series! I loved this series so much and this book just completed it! I laughed, I cried, I even got frustrated! But honestly this was an amazing series and I'm so sad to see it finish.

This was a good book. The characters and writing were well done. Needed some more editing (maybe another look?), but I was glued.

A lot of awkwardness with Grey, Jocoby was kind of a pussy, and elves badmouthing the kings daughter. Other than that... pretty good
