4.0 out of 5 stars Dayhunter, 1 Sep 2009
This review is from: Dayhunter: The Second Dark Days Novel (Mass Market Paperback)
Mira has been a nightwalker (a vampire) for centuries. But she has a secret that makes her a very valuable commodity, or target, depending on the person -- the unique ability to summon fire. Fire being fatal to all nightwalkers but her. Enter the enigmatic Danaus (a vampire hunter) with his own mysterious past. However, Mira and Danaus have learned to put on hold their killing ways to work together to stop the naturi from opening a portal between worlds. Banished for eons beyond the world's boundaries, the malevolent naturi prepare to feed once again upon a vulnerable earth -- and treachery is opening wide the portal that will enable their dread re-emergence. The great battle that has always been Mira's destiny is looming, and she must remain powerful in the face of the manipulative vampire Coven and protecting those she cares about.

I really enjoyed this book; it was as entertaining and nicely written as 'Nightwalker' but also built on the characters and effectively expanded the world. I liked meeting one or two lycans and the Coven were an interesting bunch. There were a lot of side plots in 'Dayhunter' which seemed to be setting up things for future stories. This didn't bother me in the least, as it looks as if the side excursions will likely bear fruit at some point in the future of the story. The talk of the Great Awakening pointed to some tough times ahead.

We see most of the characters from the previous book reappear here: Danaus, Tristan, Jabari, Sadira etc. I liked learning more about Tristan and hope we can see him develop into a stronger nightwalker. His weakness as a vampire was emphasised a great deal, and he needed Mira's protection to function under the watch of the Coven. This kind of underscored the Coven as a brutal political and ruling force, but I'd like to see him become stronger. I was glad to see Ryan again, although we didn't get to learn much more about his character... other than a very impressive display as to just how powerful he is. Rowe was surprisingly interesting as well. Drake did an efficient job of adding in shades of grey into the characters here; it made things a little more compelling and shook things somewhat.

The novel ended on an intriguing note. I look forward to seeing the inevitable occur!
