Two destines. One death.


“Her kiss could kill us, and my consent signed our death certificates.”


Eric Welborn isn’t completely human, but he isn’t the only shade in the small Midwest town of Hayworth. With one year left before his eighteenth birthday, Eric is destined to win a long-raging war for his kind. But then she happens. In the middle of the night, Eric meets a nameless shade, and she’s powerful—too powerful—and his beliefs are altered. The Dark has lied to him, and he’s determined to figure out exactly what lies were told, even if the secrets protect his survival.


Jessica Taylor moves to Hayworth, and her only goal is to find more information on her deceased biological family. Her adoptive parents agree to help on one condition: perfect grades. And Jessica is distraught when she’s assigned as Eric’s class partner. He won’t help, let alone talk to her, but she’s determined to change him—even if it means revealing everything he’s strived to hide.

“Miss. Thompson twisted the concept of Light and Dark, reversing the well-known roles, changing the time-old dance and making it her own. Brilliant and true, “Minutes Before Sunset” is thought-provoking, bringing real-life lessons and morals from a world of the supernatural.” – Live. Laugh. Read

~*~ New Release & Review ~*~ Death Before Daylight (The Timely Death Trilogy #3) by Shannon A. Thompson

Death Before Daylight (The Timely Death Trilogy #3)

Seconds Before Sunrise


Two eternities. One ending.

“Harmony would only come with destruction.”

The moment Eric and Jessica are reunited, they are torn apart. After the appearance of a new breed of shades and lights, the powers shift for the worse, and all three descendants find themselves face-to-face in the Light realm. When Darthon is in control, the last thing everyone expects is to finally hear the truth.

While Jessica learns the reason of her creation, Darthon’s identity is exposed to Eric – and only Eric – and Eric can no longer defend himself. With the eternities of the Light and the Dark resting on Jessica’s shoulders, she must chose who she will be: a light or a shade.

In the end, someone must die, and the end is near.


My Review:


I love it when you get so engrossed within a series of books that upon the last and final book, everything the author has built up to , comes together in perfect harmony, it’s fits and completes in perfection…..and this series was no different.

I’ve loved this storyline from the beginning, you find yourself being captivated by the love story of Eric and Jessica, the emotional and physical struggles they have to endure as a result of the ongoing war between the shades and the lights and of course this so called “prophecy” they are working towards.

 “Harmony would only come with destruction.”

We are constantly kept on our toes throughout this book, there are so many secrets revealed, so many twists playing around and a plot that you just couldn’t put down, not without wanting to know what the characters did next.

This third instalment brings us to the final showdown, and not everyone will come out alive…..
