Twenty-four years have passed since the last sunrise, and for almost three decades, the creatures of the night have walked the day without fear. Once, humanity fought bravely against the coldblood legions, but now, we exist only in a few scattered settlements—tiny sparks of light in a growing sea of darkness.

Gabriel de León is the last of the Silversaints, a holy order ded

I feel like vampires are only actually good about 20% of the time but god I can’t wait for this

No romantic sparkling vampires here!

I like the sound of this book. Like getting back to the basics when vampires were scary monsters, instead of romantic Hero’s/heroines. I feel like I felt all those years ago when I wanted to read Interview With A Vampire, long before the movie was filmed. I can’t wait to read it! I want it now!!!

Here's the thing: I still haven't read a single book by Jay Kristoff—*takes cover from the assault of the fans*



—okay okay WAIT! There's a but to that! *placating tone* but by the time this comes out, aka Fall 2020, I'd have read many of his books as I already plan to. So let's be civil (😒) and appreciate the fact that:

It rhymes I repeat THIS IS NOT A DRILL the title actually rhymes! 😂 *dies giggling*

On the one hand, it's about vampires.
On the other hand, it's written by Jay Kristoff.

I hope this isn't a redux of my Renee Ahdieh "THE BEAUTIFUL" fiasco, because I love that vampires are becoming popular again, but I also really want the stories to be good.

I know Jay Kristoff is kind of a big deal but he's not what's drawing me to this book.

First of all, vampires. I am so glad they're back!

Second of all, IT'S ILLUSTRATED BY ONE OF MY FAVOURITE ARTISTS EVER. Nan Fe is an amazing artists and draws dark and bloody stuff and I love her. Just some examples:



Look at that blood bending Katara!!! I stan.



MY SON KAZ BREKKER



Lila Bard looking hot and deadly.



Kate and... Sloan... from Monsters of Verity.
