He hammered her in the jaw cursing Mira for being a nightwalker as if that is the most sinful abomination in creation. Still recovering from her successful but harrowing triumph that has kept the perilous Bori from conquering humanity (see Pray for Dawn; better yet the entire Dark Days saga), Mira is further stunned when the man battering her claims to be her father. In between the vicious beating, she insists her dad is dead, but he proclaims otherwise and demands she use her paranormal power of being the only nightwalker who brings the fire for his profit or she and her loved ones and allies will suffer the consequences.

The coven makes her an Elder and sends her to Budapest to repel the deadly onslaught of the Naturi incursion. Mira fears a set-up as she knows few if any trust her because her skills make her unique by placing her with a foot in each camp. She turns to Danaus the vampire slayer for back-up. However, in Hungary, as she learns who her dearest so called dad is, Mira is right about treachery, but wrong as to the source.

As dark and bloody as its four predecessors, Wait for Dusk is a terrific entry in which this round Mira tells the tale. The story line continues the overarching theme of back stabling treachery with the mantra trust no one especially family and loved ones. Readers will appreciate this urban fantasy as the European vampire and human communities are being overrun by the insidious bellicose Naturi.

The big tagline for this book is that Danaus betrays Mira, I honestly don't understand this and how he exactly betrayed her. The cover shows a couple all hot and heavy but there is only one sex scene through the whole book and its toward the very end. I thought that FINALLY Danaus and Mira would be together from the beginning and they'd explore their relationship through the entire book as they took on the world but nope, just once and it's back to business as usual, it's like Jocelynn Drake doesn't know how to write anything besides action sequences. She uses the same phrases over and over in every book which drives me nuts! A book should have some humor, romance, action and suspense but her Dark Days series is all fighting, all the time. The characters aren't even worth saving which is what the entire series is based on, doesn't make sense to me to write about saving the vampires and then to write them as heartless monsters??? One good thing about book five is it's the best one out all the rest but still not great. Mira cleans out some annoying pest, finds out who her father really is, takes back her freedom and finally hooks up with Danaus. I also really like the side characters but was really ticked when i read about what happened to Tristan. I've already invested my time into reading all 5 books and now i'm calling it quits, Jocelynn Drakes writing remains the same and i don't see any reason to buy anymore of her books ever!
