(by Goodreads)

Sarah Latham is the epitome of an all-American sweetheart. She’s a cheerleader with good grades, a judge for a father, a homemaker for a mother, and a reputation that makes everyone else look like devils. But after being kidnapped, something triggered inside Sarah and she’s no longer made of sugar and spice.

Acting Chief of Police Aaron Grant and his FBI girlfriend Teresa are left chasing their tails after bodies start dropping and they can’t find the sinner they’re searching for because she’s disguised as an angel. Wyatt quickly becomes Hell as it becomes apparent that Sarah isn’t the only mentally unstable person in town.

The secrets that had been buried under the Alaskan ground are beginning to ascend to the surface, but their ascension won’t come with forgiveness. It will only come with more death—a Devil’s Dawn.

“She thinks you’re crazy,” she says.

I shift my car into drive. “Well, she’s right.”


My Opinion

Devil’s Dawn introduces the readers to the main characters Aaron, Teresa and Sarah. Taking turns, Aaron, Sarah and other relevant characters tell us about their lives – not only about current events, we also learn a little about their past. This book has a pleasant flow; the individual chapters are not too long, the respective header shows you unmistakably the current narrator and the time she or he is telling about.

With Devil’s Dawn, Charlotte Raine has created a different approach on telling a romantic supense series. Devil’s Dawn is a well balanced romantic suspense read with believable characters – believable because we get some insight into their ways of thinking, getting to know possible virtues and flaws. Charlotte Raine slowly reveals her characters’ stories; the story has a steady pace – it is just right, keeping the thrill on an equally steady level. I was drawn into the story, a luckily invisible observer. Devil’s Dawn is a good read for romantic suspense fans, enjoying suspense, trips into criminals’ minds and a love story on the side.

This is a very pleasant read. I need to get hold of the first instalment as I am very curious about Grant & Daniels beginnings.


In brief:

Plot Some twists
Mood Suspenseful
Pace Steady
Characters Developed

Charlotte gets inspiration for her writing from the scenic but serene mountains around her home in Vail, Colorado.
