Full Review:

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 was far more focused on the action than the relationships. We do indeed meet knew characters. We do indeed learn more about Danaus. We do indeed learn more about Mira. I, however, am a relationship girl. I like to read about growth in a relationship - an attachment of sorts. Dayhunter did not provide relationship growth or even character growth.
Yet, with that said, I see the relationship with Mira and Danaus as one that needs time to grow, time to replace suspicion and distrust with trust and need. Yeah, as I reflect, I am glad that the relationship between Mira and Danaus grows slowly instead of at rapid speed.
Dayhunter was more a story of Mira's fight for truth, protection, survival and responsibility. She is alone...alone emotionally.
