Review: Light of Dawn by Vannetta Chapman

Light of DawnLight of Dawn was a great conclusion to this dystopian series! I enjoyed reconnecting with these characters again and seeing how they had continued to adapt to the new reality that they all lived in.

This story had many situations in it that required the characters to decide what the right thing to do was. I appreciated that these characters were better prepared to make these decisions as they faced danger during their travels. They had developed a necessary awareness and understanding of how they new world order worked and what their place in it was. I enjoyed seeing their strengths shine through, yet also watching as they made decisions that others might not make because it was the “right” thing to do for someone.

Light of Dawn had danger, romance, camraderie, and plenty of tension which left me anxiously turning page after page to see how everything worked out! I have enjoyed all of the books in this series.

(5 stars)

I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.


Light of DawnBefore Dawn, What Dangers Lurk in the Darkness?

For nine months, since a devastating solar flare caused a complete failure of the electrical grid, Shelby Sparks and her diabetic son, Carter, have been living at the ranch of Shelby’s high school sweetheart, Max Berkman.

Mostly insulated from the chaos surrounding them, Shelby and Max discover that the Texas government has fled the capitol and is barely maintaining control of the state. The governor needs volunteers to search for the new federal government, but no one knows exactly where it might be located—if it even still exists—or what perils await those brave enough to take on the mission.

Compelled by Carter’s desperate need for insulin and their God-given sense of duty, Shelby and Max answer the governor’s call and set out on a treacherous 600-mile journey, where they will experience the terrifying effects of unrestrained anarchy. If they have the faith and fortitude necessary to reach their destination, what will they find when they get there?

In this thrilling conclusion to the Remnant trilogy, America is left teetering between total collapse and the dawn of a new and vastly different reality.
