Dark Before Dawn by Monica McGurk

I have to admit something. I have not read the previous books in this series. I now wish I had, however, the book stood well on its own. Monica was successfully able to bring in the past without it taking over the story. This book reminds me of the Fallen series by Lauren Kate, but it stands on its own phenomenally. 

Dark Before Dawn was a wonderous journey. An Angel fell in love with a human. Michael fell in love with Hope. Their love is what every woman wants. Ironically enough, they hope for that kind of love. I have that kind of love. One must fight for true love. Most importantly, Monica teaches forgiveness. Can you learn to forgive the person who has hurt you the most? The person who has tried to kill you, multiple times? The person who sold your little sister into prostitution? I bawled like a baby. I kept putting myself in Hope's shoes, wondering how I would handle what she has gone through. Monica also wrote on how strong a woman can be, but also how one person could tear that strength away. 

Dark Before Dawn has amazing characters, and a fantastic story that I did not want to end.


Thank you for allowing me to read and review this book. I loved it so much.
