The first Eve of Eternal Night (read my review here) was written by Amber Lynn Natusch while the newest release is by C.N. Crawford. These books do not have to be read in an order as they happen about the same time to different people. Dawn is down on her luck.

And much to Holly’s unhappiness, Dawn has her boyfriend Luke.
