Format: Paperback
In book three of the Vampire Babylon trilogy, the team is still devastated by their encounter with the Vampire Killer. Dawn Madison and her new `family' must forge on to find the nest of the Vampire Underground - where Dawn suspects her mother is now hiding with her master. The team is still searching for Dawn's missing father, but Dawn's developing feelings for her mysterious new boss and the seemingly tamer Matt Lonigan, a local PI, are complicating her ability to think clearly, much less act rationally. When Dawn is suddenly driven from her refuge she doesn't know where to turn or who to trust - or which offer she should accept...

There are so many sub-plots to follow in this trilogy it's not funny. The characters are easy to follow until you get to this book, but things start to get a little murky part of the way through this one. Eva, Dawn's mother, has kidnapped Frank, Dawn's father and Dawn is trying to rescue him and kill her mother. But Eva is still her mother, so Dawn's conflicted. Unbeknownst to Dawn, she has forged a relationship with the master of the Underground, Benedikte, who has become Matt Lonigan in the hopes of winning Dawn's love. Eva is under orders to bring Dawn to the Underground - the last place Dawn wants to go, unless it is to rescue Frank.

Jonah is counting on Eva's love for Dawn - or obsession with her, whichever it may be - to finally give away the location of the Underground so that he may destroy it and confront the Master behind it. But Dawn and Kiko don't understand the why - why is it so important to kill them and why is Jonah so obsessed with hunting them down? And who are the Friends? Using Kiko's powers, Dawn is thrust into a violent vision of the past which answers their questions, and then some.

The Elite class vampires have been recalled to the `Underground'. Their secret society is known, and an attack is feared.

Limpet and Associates are on lockdown and going a bit stir crazy. Is this the end? Should she just leave? To convince her to stay Kiko brings her on a vision with a dagger. The vision is disturbing. Men worse than beasts and monsters.

Dawn Madison is more than just strong. Her mind has the ability to push things and protect her, and she is getting stronger. Jonah considers her dispensable. All this time he has been using her as bait to draw out the Master, or in his human looking form, Matt Lonigan, a man Dawn has feelings towards.

Frank Morgan is a vampire, and held hostage by his vampire and deceased wife Eva Claremont, and Dawn's mother in her attempt to reunite the family without Breisi. The only way to return him to his human state is to kill her mother. Can she do it? Which side is Eva on? More likely her own, but if the Master who is infatuated with both women, finds out, will he destroy her? Is anybody safe from his wrath and his continuing decline into insanity?

Jonah Limpet reveals another secret. Another entity, The Voice, lives in him. Costin, an evil vampire, is after his sovereign who turned them. If he, the Dragon, should rise again, it would be Armageddon. Can humanity be saved?

Break of Dawn by Chris Marie Green is a fast, easy read, with few details, however the characters will stay in your memory long after you've read the story. I would rank this story a four because it relies on events happening in the previous two books to propel the story forward.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
"Break of Dawn" is a great end to Chris Marie Green's first story arc within the Vampire Babylon series. This reader would suggest first reading Night Rising and Midnight Reign in order to get a full understanding of the story line.

Dawn's life as a stuntwoman is but a memory. Her main focus now is to save her father and help "The Voice" conquer the master of LA's underground vampire nest. Oh, and another item high on Dawn's list of priorities is getting revenge on her "undead" mother! (Oh dear! Mama Drama!)

Dawn's on a rampage and the development of her newly acquired skills makes her one tough vampire hunter! But she's stubborn too. She's determined to figure out "The Voice". She won't give up until she is able to find out who and/or what he is. The unfortunate side to this determination? Dawn may find out that too much information just may force too many choices that she is not necessarily ready to make.

One vampire master is vanquished, many questions are answered and relationships further developed. But, as per the post script, the journey to Dawn and Costin's ultimate goal is still quote the adventure to be had!

An excellent urban fantasy with a very different love story. If you've ever wondered about "spirit" sex, Chris Marie Green does a great job of portraying the "out of body" sexual experience. As with the previous two installments, readers will be kept feverishly turning the pages!
