Review: Dark Before Dawn by Monica McGurk


It’s darkest before the dawn . . . and that can be very dark indeed.
Twelve years have passed since Hope Carmichael helped fulfill the ancient prophecy that permitted the Fallen Angels to return, forgiven, to Heaven. Now a lawyer at twenty-eight, Hope—along with a resurrected Michael, the archangel who loves her—has been presented by Heaven with a choice: one that could either result in Hope never seeing her family again, or the world losing its greatest angelic protector. At the same time, Hope’s young sister Aurora struggles to help a school friend resolve her dark personal issues, all while being observed by a sinister adversary from Hope’s past, working on a plan for revenge that may soon plunge the entire extended Carmichael family into tragedy.
The culmination of the saga begun in Dark Hope and continued in Dark RisingDark Before Dawn returns to the world of the Archangel Prophecies, telling one final story of adventure, moral urgency, and the ultimate choice Hope and Michael make between the human and the divine.

Rating: 4/5

Dark Before Dawn is the third book in the Archangel Prophecies series by Monica McGurk, you can find my reviews of the previous books here {Dark Hope - Book #1} and here {Dark Rising - Book #2}.

Twelve years have passed and Hope is struggling to forgive Michael for his silence - two years of silence, where she wondered whether he would ever return to her ... whether he was alive or dead. But there is a greater issue on the horizon, one that has put her family and neighbours at risk - Lucas has been released early, and he's looking for revenge. Can they keep her family safe?  

As with the other books in this series, this one deals with the dark side of humanity - that of human trafficking. It is well written, and well researched. It contains descriptions of drug use, teenage prostition and violence - all of which are elements of human trafficking and are therefore relevant to the story.
