The fifth Dark Days novel goes back to the perspective of fire starter vampire Mira. Drake’s world continues to be filled with treachery and deceit, making trust and loyalty major story themes. In keeping with the brisk pace, there is plenty of dark violence and bloody consequences. First rate as always!

Having just locked the dangerous Bori away from Earth, Mira is snatched away and ruthlessly beaten by a creature claiming to be her biological father. “Jack” is unhappy with Mira being a nightwalker and wants her to use the powers of her bloodline for his benefit. Jack expects results — and soon.

Mira has been made a coven elder and her first assignment is to go to Budapest to rid it of a Naturi invasion. Suspecting a trap, Mira enlists the aid of her former enemy turned ally, Danaus. As the lives of Mira and Danaus entwine, their relationship may be key to their survival. (EOS, Aug., 384 pp., $7.99)

I love Jocelyn Drakes Dark

I love Jocelyn Drakes Dark Day novels. I love strong, beautiful bad ass women vampires. Women always seem to have to prove themselves in a male dominated vampire world, and stronger, older vampires always try to dominate and control them, especially sires. Mira is tough and ruthless, but there is a core of compassion and sensitivity inside her, after all she was human and a mother….once. She is a unique vampire with special abilities, she can manifest fire, most feared by vampires.

Ying and yang, paranormal worlds must be kept in balance and kept secret from humans. Danus is a vampire hunter, and not all human. His involvement and journey with Mira test his beliefs to the limits. He begins to see Mira for who she truly is, what they are really fighting for, and what part he wants to play in her life. Don’t miss this series, it is worth your while.
