Dayhunter (Dark Days #2)
A new day dawns blood red
A master of fire, Mira is the last hope for the world. For centuries she has secretly enforced the history-altering edicts of the Triad. Now she and her unlikely ally--the human vampire hunter, Danaus--have come to Venice, home of the nightwalker rulers. But there is no safety in the ancient city, for the threat of conflict is in the wind . . ....more
Dayhunter is an fast paced action packed Urban Fantasy read. I'm a huge fan of this series and cannot wait for Dawnbreaker. She also has a anthology for this series in Unbound called The dead, The damned and the forgotten. Also a great edition to this series.
Dawnbreaker has lots of twists and brings a lot more to the table for Mira and Danaus to handle.
I love the characters in this series. Mira(Master of fire) is a vampire who can co ...more

This is the second book in the Dark Days series by Jocelynn Drake.
The Premise: 600 year old nightwalker (aka vampire) Mira is the narrator in this series who is the only nightwalker to ever exist with the ability to control fire. She and other supernatural creatures (who humans are unaware of), have been fighting an epic battle against the return of the naturi, a race of powerful beings who believe humans, nightwalkers and everyone else should be extermina ...more

Mira doesn't want anyone to depend on her and she sure as hell doesn't want to have to depend on someone else. Or so she thought. When she decides to take Tristan under her wing and save him from his creato ...more
Drake manages to keep up a heady mix of interesting plot twists and super-fun-to-read characters to boot. The book starts out with Mira and company arriving in Venice to meet with the Coven about the impending war/battles with the Naturi, ...more
I think Mira is pretty bad ass as well as Danaus. We find out what he is in this book and I get kind of angry because he is (not going to tell you) something that everyone she be shunning, not him getting to shun everyone else. I also got mad ...more
Dayhunter stayed true to the theme of the Dark Days. It stayed true to Mira and her fight against the Naturi. It stayed true to the action. It stayed true to Nightwalkers.
I liked Mira.
I liked Danaus.
I liked Jabari.
I liked the story.
I liked the tension between Mira and those in the Coven. There is tension for Mira as she does not know who to trust...Jabari? Danaus? Who?
Dayhunter was far more focused on the chase...the need to beat the Naturi. It ...more
After the last battle with the Naturi, Mira and her human vampire hunter Danaus must appears before the Coven in Venice, the home of the Nightwalkers. Mira knows it could be a trap and starting a fight with one of the ancient vampires could be a dangerous task, but she hates their corru ...more
It starts where the first book ends. Mira, Tristan and Danaus have to appear in front of the Coven. They arrive to Venice and from that moment the actions begins and never stops.
By the end of book one Mira learns that she can be manipulated by Jabari and by Danaus. This makes her feel unsafe. The peace she has had for years is gone.
She finds herself wanting to protect Tristan and takes him under her care against her selfish nature. Her "new family" keeps o ...more
I had a real hard time understanding the time of person Mira is. Is she a killer? Is she cruel? How deep are her morals? I found everything very double standard. She kills vampire weaklings but she's a protector of humans? Is that just to make thing she's tough and at the same time sympathise with her?
If she hates the naturi why would she make an spectacle of hers ...more
This time reading Dayhunter I was able to detach myself from the characters and comprehensively experience the book. I think one of the major problems I had with the series the first time was that I was too invested in Mira and her tragedy of a life. Now I can appreciate a more well-rounded view of the world without getting hung up on the little details that affect Mira's life.
Saying that I don't think I would give this installment 5 stars now. I didn't enjoy it enough for it ...more
Throughout the book Mira is trying to find a balance between the nightwalker world and her own morality. She is constantly being judged by those around her, and on more than one occasion those around her are manipulating Mira into positions that she never asked to be in.
I think one of the main reasons that I love this book is because Mira is neither completely good nor completely evil. She just does what she thi ...more
- Who Mira is
- Who Danaus is
- What are nightwalker and naturi
- What are The Elders and Coven
Assuming people who read this review already read Nightwalker, but not read ...more
Most of the book is set in Venice, Italy. We meet several other vampires, including the Coven and a few more weres. The plot moves along nicely and is still not too predictable with lots of twists and turns. We find more out about Mira's powers and why Jabira has not killed her yet. It seems everyone has their own agenda and a lot of secret (or not so secret)alliances. We still do not have a clear line of who is good and who is ...more
