Blurb (from Goodreads):

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 choose who she will be—a light or a shade.
In the end, someone must die, and the end is near.


This book was everything that I wanted it to be! It was intense, sooo many things happened, so many revelations, I loved every single bit of it!

*A bit spoilery for those who haven’t read the previous books in this series.*

In the third and last installment of the Timely Death trilogy, Jessica has gotten back her memory but it has triggered something else as well. A new problem arises as Jessica is forced to choose between the Light and the Dark. With new revelations, chaos is ensured but someone has to die to ensure the balance between the Light and the Dark is restored once again. Will Jessica and Eric be successful or will it ultimately lead them to their downfall?

The plot was spot on! The story picks up from where book 2, Seconds Before Sunrise left off. Jessica has gotten back her memory but Darthon kidnaps Eric and Jessica and takes them to the Light realm. Something or the other continued happening and it was hard to put down this book! So many truths came out in this book and I was glad that all of my questions were answered. Eric and Jessica had to face more difficulties than the other, I hated Darthon even more when he controlled Eric’s voice but I loved how much they trusted each other. I simply loved them together!

“We were together even when we were apart.”


I was mostly right about Zac and Robb and like Jessica I did the same mistake as well, the plot twist was pretty awesome, I really wasn’t expecting it but I liked how everything turned out. The appearance of a new breed increased my curiosity, Jada was a great character and although I was a little unsure about her in the first but then I loved her and I was surprised the hell out when I learned about her human identity, I didn’t even think that for a second! But it was an awesome surprise!

The impending fight finally happened and I liked the way it was executed. I loved Jonathan and Jessica’s friendship and I loved how he trusted and supported her as a guard and a friend. Jessica handled everything maturely in this book. The final fight was intense and I was freaking afraid for a second but everything flowed out just the way I liked. The ending was not what I was expecting but I was left satisfied.

Overall, Death Before Daylight was a fantastic last installment in the Timely Death trilogy! The plot was great and the characters were interesting and I was intrigued throughout the book. Although there isn’t much romance but I loved every bit of Eric and Jessica together. The writing was smooth and it was fast paced throughout the book. I seriously can’t wait to read more by this author!
