Black Dawn is the eighth novel in the Night World series by L. J. Smith.


Maggie is the picture of an ordinary human teenager. Yet when her brother’s lovely girlfriend reports that he has been killed in a mountaineering accident, she knows it is a lie. 

The chase leads her to discover an entire community of human slaves ruled by vampires in the hollow of a Washington mountain. 

There also, she finds Delos, the second of the Wild Powers, the vampire ruler of this kingdom where she is a slave — and her soulmate. 

Her modern clothes cause the other slaves to hail her as a messiah come to bring them freedom.

Can even level-headed Maggie deal with her arrogant soulmate and an entire kingdom to be freed?
