There's nowhere left to hide.

I thought vampires were our enemies - they controlled our lives, isolated our cities, and demanded our blood - until I met Victor. With Victor taking over as the new Lord Valentine, things were supposed to get better. Instead, they're worse than ever.

Day Walkers, a new breed of vampires who can walk in the sun, are terrorizing the city. Blood supplies are low, and if Victor's vampires don't get enough, they will become infected with the Thirst - a disease that will turn them into mindless killers.

To stop it, I must journey across the desolate wasteland to the very place where the sickness began. I can only hope that the answers that await me are enough to save us all... before it's too late.

BLOOD-KISSED SKY starts up shortly after the cliffhanger ending of book 1. I love both the main character Dawn and her love interest Victor. I was just as shocked as Dawn was when she woke up and was still human after the ending of DARKNESS BEFORE DAWN. 

We get to visit another city and explore life outside Denver. Some of our favorite supporting characters are along for the ride and we get to know a little more about all of them. The romance is a tad bit on the sidelines as Victor tries to protect Dawn and pushes her away but you can still tell with every scene they are in together that the spark isn't going anywhere. 

There was tons of action and drama throughout and the world continues to get better and better. The biggest downfall for BLOOD-KISSED SKY? It ended to soon!! The ending revealed some astonishing stuff (which makes a lot of little things make a whole lot of sense), I love that this series leaves me guessing at every turn. I continue to be a fan and I'm going to be picking up book 3 AFTER DAYBREAK when it hits the shelf's June 2013.

I gave it 4/5 stars
