Book Review : Seconds Before Sunrise ( The Timely Death Trilogy #2 ) by Shannon A. Thompson

Seconds Before Sunrise (Timely Death, #2)Seconds Before Sunrise by Shannon A. Thompson

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

OMG What an ending !

I want to begin with saying a huge Thank You to the lovely Shannon A. Thompson for sending me an ARC of her magnificently book for review and send her a huge hug. I’ll always be amazed by her work and she knows it – if she did not know it, now she does !

Thrilling, Captivating and Addictive

Seconds Before Sunrise is The Timely Death Series sequel , which means that it picks up right from where the first book has ended. This book has been magnificent – and I really mean it -, full of magic, twists and lots of action. I only wish that Shannon would be a little bit less mean, harsh and violent with her characters. Despite that, I have enjoyed this one as much as I enjoyed the first one.
Seconds Before Sunrise also gives us more insight on the characters and we get to see just how much they have grown since book one. In its essence, the book deals with the effects of the decisions that have been made by the end of the first book, and it focuses on the characters’ personal difficulties. After Jessica has decided to let the DARK erase her memory to keep everyone safe, now she is bound to get it back with any price. In the meantime, Jess begins having different dreams – which aren’t quite dreams at all – so she goes out after Eric to get some questions answered. With Eric’s birthday approaching fast,and the battle he has to face against Darthon the other descendant, things tend to get more stressful for everyone. But that is not all, each side has its own people coming to Hayworth to assist in the prophetic battle.

Things are turning a little bit ugly not just between DARK AND LIGHT in this short amount of time, but also between Jess and her friends – Robb, Zack and Crystal. To be honest I used to like Robb in the beginning but now I only hate him. As for Zack I never liked him, anyway, so there is nothing new to add about my feelings for him. If in the first book I did not have any kind of suspicions regarding Zack, now I’ve grown more and more suspicious of him. I hope to find out if my suspicions were right and my gut hasn’t lied to me, in the next book.

What makes this book/series a MUST READ are the language, the strong characters and their unnerving nature.

About Cristina

I started this blog for quite a few reasons: 1. To share my opinions about books I read. (I'm open to recommendations) 2. To express myself in the only way that I love,which is of course writing 3. To connect with people with whom I may share the same interests I read and write because it offers me an escape door from the world we live in. A door which allows me to be whomever I want to be, live wherever in this big world,set off on adventures and most of all because it brings my imagination back to life from its very very long sleep. And of course...Because I love to !! Here are some basic things about your host and writer.. My name is Cristina and I come from Bucharest ( also known as The Little Paris ) were I was born, raised and am currently - still - living. I’ve finished my studies a few years ago and got my bachelor degree at Dimitrie Cantemir University, in my hometown; in Economics. I have to admit that this specialty wasn't my first choice. I have been weighing my choices – as in, to what they can provide me in future – both while I was still in high school and after. Initially I wanted to go to Foreign Languages, but I had a big fall the moment I saw that it wasn't acredited – huge disappointment washed over me. I am still a bit disappointed about that to be honest. I have a huge passion for writing ever since I was little, and even if I had times when I didn't (or couldn't) write anything, now I am right back on track. My dad is the only one who knows how much passion I put into what I write and doesn't giggle or grin when I bring it up. I love having someone’s support no matter how little it is,it still means so much to me. Love, Cris ♥ Hope that those who will follow me like what I post around here and - why not - maybe give some ideas about new topics. :) If anyone wants to add something on the blog please contact me at
