At first it appeared to be a normal sickness, but when the bodies began to drop, the nightmare rose.

It soon appears that someone is trying to contain this disease, snatching almost every infected body during the night. As the government steps in, the people become aware that they are under attack from something much worse than a virus. Now they must ban together and fight for their lives against the creatures of the night.
Filled with suspense, fright, and action, Dead by Dawn is sure to be one of the best vampire fiction novels of the year. One of the greatest vampire plagues that you're not going to want to miss!

Where does Dead by Dawn rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I would say in my top 75.

What other book might you compare Dead by Dawn to and why?

Think about any zombie apocalypse book, but instead of slow walking zombies you have super fast, intelligent, very strong vampires, kind of like I Am Legend I guess.

Which scene was your favorite?

Any scene where Joe and Keith put the hurt on the vampires, those small victories keep you going because most of the book doesn't favor humanity.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

For the time no, but it was very interesting and kept my attention.

Post-apocalyptic vampires

I’ve grown rather tired of the zombie trope, so Dead by Dawn peaked my interest with its utilization of vampires instead of zombies. It starts off a bit slow, but once the vampires make an appearance it really picks up the pace with lots of suspense and action. I enjoyed how each chapter had a different set of characters and viewpoints that depict slice of life scenarios during the vampire outbreak. This book also provides terrifying vampires (not wimpy ones) along with plenty of gory scenes, which is a definite plus! However, the narration is a bit monotonous and I had difficulty distinguishing characters, but I did not let that bother me too much.

If you’re a fan this genre you should give Dead by Dawn a try- it has a enjoyable new spin on the tired old zombie apocalypse theme!
