The end of an Empire, the rise of a Queen
Emory Fae enjoys leading a quiet, normal life. That is until two mysterious, and handsome soldiers show up at her apartment, and the life she knew is instantly whisked away. Memphis Carter and Brokk Foster come from the magical and war ridden world of Kiero, and upon Emory's arrival she will discover she is the long-lost heir to the Royal Line and is thrown into the Black Dawn Rebellion with a dynamic role to ignite the rebels and reclaim her throne.
With both men being darkly woven in her past Emory uncovers hidden secrets, a power held long dormant, and will soon realize there are worse things than supernatural humans, love, loss, betrayal, and a Mad King.
Some things are better left in the shadows
When I first started reading I must admit I was a bit confused. It took me a while to figure out what was going on. You start the story at an odd place where you have to try to put together what is happening. Later on, though, I figured out enough where I knew what was going on. The characters are interesting and of course it's not a romance without a love triangle. The story is a unique fantasy. I do wish it was a longer novel. Overall Black Dawn is a well-written fantasy that I enjoyed. Three out of five stars.
