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.

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.

Really wished I hadn't waited about 2.5 years between reading Shaedes of Gray (book 1) and Blood Before Sunrise. It took me a while to get back into the feel of the world and remember what happened in Shaedes of Gray. But Amanda Bonilla did a good job of recapping some of the events in the first few chapters without it being an information dump. I won't wait as long to read the next book, that's for sure!

Bonilla took her world building from Shaedes of Gray and kicked it up a notch. There's more Fae mythology through in and the plot that revolved around it kept me guessing. And just when our heroine, Darian thinks she knows how to play the game, the chess pieces are changed on her.

One thing I got a little tired of was Darian doing what many UF heroines do, runs off to fight the "world" by herself. She tries to keep all her loved ones safe by running into danger without their help. I can only hope that she will learn to let them in. Even a kick-butt heroine needs help from time to time.

I was all about Tyler in the first book but he got on my nerves a little this time. But the Jinn couldn't help it. He was under the influence of some serious magic mojo so I'll forgive him for his caveman attitude against Darian's friendship with Raif. Although Darian needs to learn to balance her relationships between the to guys.

I liked seeing more of Xander. He's the perfect character that you love to hate and hate to love. I can't wait to learn more about him and see him and Darian interact.

I'm enjoying the Shaede Assassin series by Amanda Bonilla and I'm going to continue with book 3, Crave the Darkness but first I'm going to read the two short stories, When Shadows Call (a prequel about how Darian became a Shaede) and Lost to the Gray (book 2.5 told from Tyler's POV).
