Editorial Reviews

Review

A spooky and fast moving plot that keeps you on the edge of your seat until the shocking end...Dark Before Dawn is a special book that should not be missed. Fresh Fiction

Dark Before Dawn is a choice pick for those seeking works of modern fantasy and ESP. The Midwest Book Review

I was truly taken with this book...it takes a great plot to really stump and throw the reader off and Juba did an awesome job of keeping me interested. Shadow Kisses

This is a young adult novel, but I can tell you that as an adult I was completely drawn into the story and anxious to see how it would all end...Stacy has an easy way of writing that draws you into her stories and keeps you there. Peeking Between the Pages

Is being psychic all rainbows and sunshine like TV, movies, and people make it out to be? Is it really that neat to know things before it happens? Can there be an evil side to having psychic abilities? All these questions went through my head as I picked up and started reading Dark Before Dawn. In this book a teenager, Dawn, has the ability to "see" things before they happen and hear other peoples thoughts sometimes or feel their feelings/emotions. Dawn feels that she is on a whole different planet than her Mom, especially after her Dad was killed in a car accident when she was 7. When her Mom re-marries and they move to Maine to move in with Jeff (the new husband) and Ken (his son). The older Dawn gets the more questions she has about her, so called, gift. She doesn't understand it or how to control it or why she has it. Dawn is introduced as a misfit, confused, picked on teenager who has no real relationship with her family and is a social outcast (being in a new school certainly doesn't help that situation). To try and "fit in" or at least gain one friend she hides her ability, but when she sees the only boy, Scott, who was nice to her die in one of her visions shouldn't she try to warn him? Well, she does, but that leads to many bad things. The kids at school call her a witch and she becomes even more outcast, that is until Candace and Jaime befriend her. They have psychic abilities too (Candace more that Jamie) and tell her that Serina (a local psychic) helps then learn more about being psychic and wants Dawn to come to a meeting. So starts Dawns new friendship circle. However, should you really learn from someone who is willing to do it, not only free, but in such a way that makes you vulnerable?

I thought this was a well written book and would really suggest this to any young adults who are interested in the paranormal, but I would also suggest it to all readers of all ages.

Though I usually do not read teen books or books that are about psychics, I decided to read this one and I'm happy that I did. This book covers the problems that a teen girl has with the psychic abilities that she has and the abilities that others have. It covers the use and misuse of these talents. The story is interesting and keeps you reading to find out what happens to the characters. I enjoyed it.

What happens when E-S-P spells D-A-N-G-E-R? Well it could mean one of two things. One, you need to learn to spell properly - or two, you're a young girl with psychic powers and you've met other young girls with psychic powers and made some friends. Only for something sinister to be in the air...

Well, that's the plot today of the book Dark Before Dawn by Stacy Juba, a Young Adult Paranormal novel involving psychic powers. It may sound like the plot to a Charmed episode, but in actual fact, this is a lot more enjoyable (apologies to Charmed fans).

Like a lot of teenagers, Dawn has trouble fitting in and making friends. The fact that she seems to possesses psychic abilities and can read minds by accident doesn't help matters and can put her in some quite embarrassing situations. But when she makes friends with Candice and Jamie (two girls that also possess psychic abilities), they bring her to a powerful psychic called Serina, who seems almost too keen to teach her about her abilities. With it, Dawn learns new abilities that she never knew that she had, which empowers her and gives her more confidence. But there couldn't possibly be a sinister side to Serina and the girls, could there?

Well, I don't want to give too many spoilers - but if you know how most Paranormal stories go, you can bet that there will be some sinister dealings somewhere down the line!

I liked this one, it was a nice change to the amount of romantic novels I've done the last few reviews (not that I don't enjoy reading those of course). The language and writing style is simple to follow and very easy to read, making this perfect for teenage readers.

Just in time for Halloween is a chillingly creepy novel called Dark Before Dawn by Stacy Juba. I've read another of Stacy's books called Sink or Swim and I really enjoyed it so when the opportunity to review this one arose I jumped at it because it sounded so good to me. I love anything to do with psychics, fortune tellers, and teenagers who get themselves into scary situations and Dark Before Dawn didn't disappoint me at all. This is a Young Adult novel but I can tell you that as an adult I was completely drawn into the story and anxious to see how it would all end.

Dawn has had psychic abilities since the age of seven which seemed to manifest after the death of her father. Her mother has discouraged these abilities and basically pretended they didn't exist and wants Dawn to do the same. So Dawn spends a lot of time hiding her abilities from her mother and everyone else. It has made her seem a little strange to others and consequently led to her being one of the unpopular kids most of the time.

When her mother remarries Dawn finds herself with a new stepfather, stepbrother, and a new school. As usual she is singled out as not being part of the crowd and messing up in gym class sure doesn't help. Then it hits her. She has a vision about one of the popular boys at school and because she feels she couldn't live with herself if something happened to him, she warns him of the impending danger. When her vision comes true she is branded a witch and the teasing becomes even worse.

Then she meets Candace who tells her that there are others like her right in their town. Someone who can teach Dawn how to use her abilities. Dawn has a bad feeling about it all but agrees to meet his woman Serina.
