Read + Review: No Dawn Without Darkness, by Dayna Lorentz

This book is about a deadly virus which spread inside a mall. The government locked everyone inside the mall to prevent the virus from spreading outside. The story is told by five different people: Shay, Ryan, Marco, Maddie, and Lexi. They try to do everything they can to get everyone alive out of the mall. Their different experiences inside the mall are told throughout the story. Some of them had to go through very depressing situations where their loved ones died inside the mall due to the virus.

I liked this book because there all kinds of things happened which I didn’t expect at all. The author did an amazing job of keeping the suspense in the story. At the end of every chapter I would goose bumps and I am so anxious to know what happens next. One thing I think the author did wrong was that there were some characters which weren’t necessary for the book.

The most memorable part of the book was when everybody was cheering for Maddie at school.
