Nina ✿ Looseleaf Reviews ✿
I've been following this series since the beginning, and I could cry over what a good ending this was! It's been a real trip, learning to love Rain, deciding whether or not to trust Aurora, mourning the beloved characters lost. This was a perfect conclusion with plenty of action. There was a happy ending, but not everything was perfect. A lot was lost and the characters had to make some difficult decisions and hard personal growth. Well done! It's been a pleasure taking this journey with you, Sa ...more
Review of White Dawn by Sara Baysinger
Rating: 5/5 stars.


"Is this what it feels like to really cry?" sang Kelly Clarkson. Yes, I guess so. Were you able to hear my heart breaking into pieces? Now I'm a living zombie. Because White Dawn was the last book in the Black Tiger series, but I'm not ready to let this world go. I'm not ready to let Ember, Rain and Aurora go. Even Titus, who turns out to be someone new in this last chapter of the story. Wow. Just. Wow. That ending, the plot twists that o

While the plot continued to be entertaining, I struggled with the switch of point-of-view characters in this book. In the first 2 books, we had one POV character, then in the 3rd book, we had (mostly) 2 POV characters (neither of which was the same character from the first 2 books).

Overall, by the end, a satisfying conclusion to this trilogy.

First thoughts: Wow! There is a lot that goes on in White Dawn, so I think I'll take it character by character. First up, Rain.

I've had a love-hate relationship with Rain throughout the series. Fortunately, White Dawn ended on the love scale. :) Rain wrecked me with his sorrow and with his love for his Ember. I wanted to cry and shake him at the same time, lol. But in the end, he remembered Who is greater and straightened up.

Aurora. So it took me a better portion of this book to decide if I even

Once I finished reading WHITE DAWN, I went back and reread most of book two, ASHEN CITY, and it helped open my eyes to the power of this novel. WOW! I sooooo understand where Rain is coming from and the deep heartache he had in this novel. Though I certainly don't approve of some of his actions, I get it, and the author did an amazing job of capturing his emotions.

Confession: I wasn't as fond of Aurora. I liked her character, but can't deny tha

this is a 4.5 stars

I finished this book a few days ago (I was kindly sent an arc from the author for an honest review). Although I really liked this book it is my least favorite in the series.
it lacked that very fast paced action that characterised black tiger and Ashen city and I found the first part to be a little boring.
besides that, I really really liked this book. the characters were amazing (Rain is still my favorite obviously) and I especially loved Rains Pov chapters. I loved the fact

Wow. I had a feeling the last book of this trilogy would be epic, and I was not disappointed! It was interesting to get to know Aurora better as she dealt with the very realistic struggles of making significant changes to an established government. Her narrative wasn't as exciting as Ember's, but I appreciated her distinct voice and the way she worked through her tortured past during the course of the book. Rain continued to be unpredictable and short-tempered, but I loved how the development of ...more

What an amazing ending to the Black Tiger Series! Baysinger's characters show the complexity of the human soul: the good and bad, moral and evil, beautiful and horrid. Who chooses to follow the good, moral, and beautiful within? And, who chooses to follow the bad, evil, and horrid within? As in real life, humans are not "black and white" beings, rather shades of gray. Will change come to the people of Ky or will they remain as they are, or even worse? The way Ky is ruled is absolutely terrible, ...more

I received an ARC for review for an honest review from the author.

I loved White Dawn! We get inside Aurora and Rain's point of view, which was wonderful. The characters stayed true to form throughout this book, and there were twists and turns along the way that keep you reading. The back story is woven into this third installment well, allowing us a closer glimpse of the main players thoughts and motives. And the spiritual element grows as the story continues, which I loved. The answer to who i

White Dawn, the final book of the Black Tiger Series was a good read. Discover what happens in the country of Ky and all the people we have come to know, such as - Rain, Aurora and Titus. There were some surprising twists with a whole lot of action, revenge, danger, romance and some good and bad surprises.

Just a note that there is some language that not be acceptable to all people, but it is a good story and I enjoyed this finale.

Absolutely in love with this series!

Well written, great flow, and you really feel connected to the characters. A very emotion inducing, heart pounding and at times amusing ride. The subtle morals littered throughout the story really speak to you and the descriptions draw you into the world. Locations and characters are easy to picture giving them a very 3 dimensional feel. Looking forward to reading more from this author

I think this book was too long. I really enjoyed the other two and was excited to read this one. I didn't like how the first two books were from Ember's perspective and then this one was from Rain and Auroura's. The writing didn't distinguish which character was talking (other than the headers) and it was confusing and sometimes I had to go to beginning of the chapter to see who was talking. ...more

First of all, what a beautiful cover! It is perfect and so fresh, brisk, colorful, hopeful, and meaningful to the story.

I am still stewing on this third and last installment. It was so different from the first and second books. Everything that was hinted at came to a head in this one. I still didn't expect the twists and turns. I still laughed, cried, was wowed, shocked, and left with many thoughts.

There are very powerful themes of redemption and forgiveness, and the struggles to arrive to the
