Book Review: VIOLET DAWN by Lynn Rush


By Lynn Rush

Published by Crescent Moon Press, 2013


In the darkest place, the Light shines brightest.

Emma's love saved Jake from life as a vampire. But their happily ever after is threatened by a savage Vamp seeking retribution for destroying the Avenos Trinity of Evil.

A mysterious stranger enters the mix, coinciding with the first Vamp attack in months. Emma's new friendship, and the suspicion and deceit surrounding it, further drives a wedge between her and Jake.

To complicate things, Emma is bitten by a Vamp with abilities no one has ever seen before, and that bite has left its mark.

A mark that might tear Jake and Emma apart forever...


Lynn Rush has done it again, with fast-paced action, heart stopping revelations and kisses hot enough to melt your e-reader. I loved this second book in the trilogy and can’t wait for the final installment in the series!

But, I digress. Back to this book. We start off months after the first book, where vampire huntress Emma Martin saved Jake Cunningham from being turned into a vampire and destroyed the Avenos and their dream of world domination. Emma has been training Jake in the ways of the hunter, and falling more and more deeply in love. They are both college students, and Jake is about to graduate with a master’s degree, as well as getting ready to propose to Emma.

The narration bounces between Emma and Jake, and it’s interesting to listen to each of their inner angst-y 20-something monologues. I also love their emotions, their love for each other. When a stranger gets thrown into the mix, their relationship is thrown into turmoil. Then when the vampires amp up the volume, turmoil goes turbo.

I read this book on a recent vacation and the only downside was having to power off my e-reader when the plane was taking off. This is a fun series, and I whole-heartedly recommend it to anyone who enjoys vampire reads.

About the Author:

Driven to write, Lynn Rush often sees her characters by closing her eyes watching their story unfold in her mind. Lynn Rush is a pen name that is a combination of two sources - Lynn, the first name of her mother-in-law, who passed away and Rush - since the author is a former inline speed skater and mountain biker. All of Rush's books are dedicated to Lynn, her namesake.

Rush holds a degree in psychology from Southwest Minnesota State University and a master's degree from the University of Iowa. Originally from Minneapolis, Rush currently enjoys living in the Arizona sunshine by road biking nearly 100 miles per week with her husband of 16 years and jogging with her two loveable Shetland Sheep dogs.
