“Absolutely wowed me!”—Romance Readers Connection

“One of my favorite new series . . . [and] one of my new favorite heroines of 2011.”—Heroes and Heartbreakers

About the Author

Amanda Bonilla lives in rural Idaho with her husband and two kids. She’s a part-time pet wrangler, a full-time sun worshipper, and only goes out into the cold when coerced. When she’s not writing, she’s either reading or talking about her favorite books.  

More About the Author

Amanda Bonilla is the author of the Shaede Assassin urban fantasy romance series.

The debut novel in the series, SHAEDES OF GRAY, was nominated for Best Urban Fantasy Protagonist of 2011 by Romantic Times Magazine.

Amanda lives in rural Idaho with her family. She's a part-time pet wrangler, a full-time sun worshipper, and only goes out into the cold when coerced. She loves the outdoors, black clothes, pink appliances, and thinks junk food should be a recognized food group. Amanda is the wife of a fire chief, the mother of a college student and a middle school student and the caretaker of far too many pets to list.

Amanda first fell in love with urban fantasy and paranormal romance when she read MOON CALLED and hasn't once looked back. She's an avid reader and firmly believes that nothing is better than new book smell!

This is a great new urban fantasy series, set in a unique world with intriguing characters.
Clare
And the ending was so bittersweet, it really made me want to know where everyone was going to go from here.

I love the relationship that Darian and Raif have and it seems to only grow stronger as time goes on.

I am a huge fan of Amanda Bonilla, and it's really not just her writing that I love. She is one of those authors who is very accessible to readers and I love that about her. But her writing is really awesome too. I really loved the first book in the series, and I really enjoyed the novella (seriously if authors keep putting out these great novellas I'm going to have to rethink my anti-novella stance). So I have been waiting for book two and it finally arrived. I was very curious to see what was going to happen to Darian now that the big battle from book 1 was over.

The plot of the book was not exactly what I was expecting. Shaedes of Gray was very much a book where the plot action based and you had this feeling when you were reading it that the stakes couldn't get any higher. I did not get that feeling from BBS. For me this entire book is so character driven, although there is plenty of action scenes, and when you finally find out what is really going on you realize the stakes are pretty high), but mostly it's so about the characters.

Darian is still finding her way as this new "changed" being that the events of book one left her in. She has also found herself in a relationship with Tyler who she does truly love, but after not letting anyone close to her in 100 years there are certainly some growing pains that need to be worked out. It also doesn't help that someone is clearly messing with Tyler's bond to her and it's make their situation all the more tense.

Raif is such a great character, and you really get to see how much Darian loves him. He has become really like family to her, Bonilla refers to him as a brother type love, but he kind of feels like a cross between brother and father type figure.

Blood Before Sunrise starts couple of months after the events in Shaedes of Gray. Darian and Raif have been searching for months for the Oracle, Delilah. When they finally find her her mind is not as once was, she is talking so much nonsense that is difficult to understand what she is really saying, but in one of her ramblings she says that Raif daughter, Brakae is not dead. Raif doesn't want to hear anything about it; he has suffered for Brakae's disappearance for years and won't believe a crazy maniacal Oracle. But something in Darian tells her Delilah is telling the truth.
Raif is her best friend, the man she loves like a brother. Darian knows how much he has suffered because of the disappearance of his daughter, for that reason she wants to find her for him and sets her mind in finding Brakae.

Reading some books is like taking a ride in a roller coaster of emotions. Reading Blood Before Sunrise is like taking a ride in the first row of that roller coaster. This book grabs you from page one to the end without letting you go, not even to take a breath, be ready to swoon, laugh and almost cry. You heart will rise and hurt and you will experience every feeling in between. Mrs. Bonilla's writing is so good and vivid that she will make you experience this and more with her words.

Darian has come a long way since we met her in Shaedes of Grey. She is learning to live a life where she is not alone, where she has people that care for her and she can count with them. She has Tyler who loves her unconditionally and is willing to die for her, Raif who is more than a brother to her and even Xander who publicly admires her and covets her.
But getting there has not been an easy road. All this is new to her and sometimes she just doesn't know how to do it.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
The world building in BLOOD BEFORE SUNRISE gets kicked up a notch as the story take us to the Fae side of the world and provides us with a whole new landscape to get to know. Darian also learns more about why she is different then the other Shaedes.

Darian did not have a good time during BLOOD BEFORE SUNRISE. Darian's decision making reverted back to her doing what she felt was right instead of trusting those around her to help her when she needed it which made some situations she found herself in worse then they could have been. She is extremely loyal to her friendship with Raif but it causes a huge problem with her love Tyler. Some crazy magic is going on that makes it all worse but lets say it was crazy and frustrating and all around heartbreaking to have to witness.

There is a great deal of action, I don't think it was as much as book 1 but there were plenty of stressful situations thrown into the mix. The ending was both heartwarming and heartbreaking and Im dying to see more of the fallout of Darian's actions. BLOOD BEFORE SUNRISE is a must read for fans of the Shaede Assassin series.

REVIEW:
I so love reading a second book in the series and loving it as much as I did the first book. Blood Before Sunrise, second book in the Shaede Assassin series by Amanda Bonilla rocked! It was full of everything I love about Urban Fantasies, the characters are better than ever, the action is always keeping me on my toes and of course the romance that turns the heat up. This series has climbed to the top of my list as one of my favorites. Let just say Bonilla knows how to keep her readers wanting more with this fantastic world she has created.

Blood Before Sunrise follows Darian, who once again puts herself in the middle of a whole lot of chaos. After finally tracking down the Oracle, who in her crazy state mentions that, Darian's Guardian and friends Raif's daughter is actually still alive. She sets off trying to find out where she is and getting herself deeper into danger, thus putting her lover and Jinn in the same boat. But she doesn't seem realize her actions could have major consequences and that she could get more than she bargained for.

Darian, I could talk about this girl for hours, good and frustrating but she's awesome no matter what. She tough and knows it very well, but what she doesn't realizes is that by putting herself in the line of fire is having an extreme effect on her friends and lover. In this book she does a lot of acting and not a lot of thinking, which with the situation of finding her friends daughter it's understandable but has a some fall backs. She gets sucked into the realm of the faerie and what she finds there is one heck of a wakeup call.
