Everywhere Katie looks, she sees his face—her dad. The one she left in the rubble.

Her real dad won’t admit there’s a problem, Tristan is about to give up on her, and she almost gives up on herself—until she meets Portia, the girl with a solution. But not every rabbit hole is worth going down—or coming back from.

Worst, people are missing and no one knows if its the

This book is one hell of a ride. I went through so many feelings regarding Katie from liking her to hating her, to cheering for her. She is very well written.

The book doesnt disappoint in the side characters either. West is snarky, sarcastic and such a good friend. Funny, too. And his relationship with Zuri is so relatable.

Just read this book. I loved the first one, The Keepers Vow but Darkness Comes at Dawn blew my mind. Perfect sequel.

Some minor spoilers here:

It is fair to say I have really enjoyed the dark twist that this sequel offers. Makes Katie more real, well, made ALL characters more real. People falling and people getting up, and falling again, and hitting harder and perduring in our worst moments. This is what this book is about, about recovering when you reach the bottom of a pit, in finding the light within those around you or on those who are new and able to see as you are. Katie here matures, even with all her

Equally as impactful as the first book; Darkness Comes At Dawn had a lot of gripping, relatable content sprinkled throughout. I'll try not to get spoiler-y with this.

Characterization: There were definitely periods of regression in Katie's character--which, as far as I'm concerned, is realistic. Seldom do people change their ways--especially their worst habits, their sense of self-doubt, their reckless behaviour or tendency towards selfishness--overnight. Though I did find myself getting pretty

Francina's writing comes into its own in this book. I still had problems with the copy editing. There were sentences that were malformed and other mistakes that shouldn't have been in the book at release or should have been fixed after the fact.

Katie finally grows into maturity, letting the chip fall from her shoulder and coming into her own. I'm not sure where the series is meant to go from here, but it obviously isn't over. I expect there will be another book. I hope there will be another

While it was frustrating at the beginning to deal with the characters' angst, it also was nice to have the actually deal with events from the previous book. And then, just when I started wondering if this was going to go anywhere, the ending brought an intensity I wasn't expecting. Very much hoping the third book gets released in the near future.

Super awesome paranormal young adult read with real world themes and beautifully fallible characters. Can't wait for the next book!
