I knew when we participated in the cover reveal for Born at Dawn that it was going to be a book I wanted to read. Luckily, TBR and Beyond Tours is also hosting a book tour for it as well. As a fan of fantasy, this one sounded right up my alley. Today I want to tell you about this book. I’m currently reading it and loving it, but I’m in a bit of a slump and having a harder time really sitting down to read. Hopefully that changes soon!
A big thanks to the author for providing me with an e-arc to read and review.
Born at Dawn by Christina Davis
Genre: Young Adult Fantasy
Publishing Date: November 15, 2020
When a heist goes terribly wrong and the binding spell holding 17-year-old Neva’s powers at bay is shattered, the half-human thief knows she’s in trouble.
Neva has always hidden her Da’Valian heritage while working risky jobs to make a name for herself and serving at her family’s tavern, but she won’t be able to hide much longer. She can either risk the safety of those she cares about or seek out her mother’s people to gain control over her emerging powers.
The Da’Valia are beautiful, brutal creatures created by the god of war, and the austere Da’Valian soldier Astiand reluctantly agrees to take Neva to his clan under his protection. She makes unexpected friends, including the handsome fighter Emiliand, and a new enemy in the clan’s ruthless leader.
Spying on her guardian, the sly heroine quickly discovers just how deep she has stumbled into a dangerous, developing clan feud.
Will she be able to embrace who she is in time to keep her loved ones safe?

About the Author
Christina Davis was raised in the Santa Cruz Mountains and is a California girl at heart. She spent much of her childhood in and out of hospitals and embraced reading as an escape. After being home-schooled through high school, she graduated summa cum laude from San Jose State University and attended NYU’s Summer Publishing Institute before embarking on a decade-long career in journalism. She enjoys chocolate, cosplay, coffee, and board games, but not necessarily in that order. She now lives in beautiful Monterey County with her husband and daughter.
I am so glad I decided to participate in this tour. I’ll definitely be keeping an eye out for the sequel. What do you think? Does Born at Dawn sound like a book for you?
