We don't know that much about Emily Jane in Into Darkness - we're just told the basics of her history - and I know why now. It's so we could get this amazing story about her without anything feeling repetitive. There isn't a ton of backstory about the world and I was glad for that. It was written for people that had already read the other one, yet it was not a sequel. It is its own story.
Emily Jane has a tragic past. She is part of a family of drifters - something that is feared and detested by most. When they are betrayed, she must fight with everything she has to protect the ones she has - knowing full well that saving them may not even be in the realm of possibilities.
Through the capture and torture, she meets Will, our favorite hero from the first book. It was good to see him through her eyes as the kind savior. It does a lot to help us understand their friendship in Into Darkness.
This book was the perfect length to read in one sitting and I recommend you do.
This is a unique portrayal of creatures who drink human blood. It fills you with emotions seeing how inhumane people can truly be, and how fear is spread when the ulterior motive is greed. Although it's a prequel to another novel (which I haven't read), it is complete in itself, but leaves you wanting to read more, to see where the story goes.
As a novella, Into the Cool Light of Dawn was a great introduction to a few of the characters from Into Darkness – however was written well enough to be able to be read as a standalone story.
As with Into Darkness, I couldn’t put this book down. From the point of view of a young girl, a minor character in Into Darkness, this novella explores the unfairness and judgment faced by Emily Jane through no fault of her own – but is written without judgment – allowing me to empathize to a certain extent, while forming my own opinions.
Only complaint from me was the length – it was finished too quick!
Am really looking forward to more installments of these novels, to explore more of the characters in this series.
