Overview

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 . . . with unholy alliances and earth-shattering betrayals taking hideous form in the shadows.

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 a shocking revelation: that Danaus, the only creature she dares to trust, is something more than the man he claims to be . . .

Editorial Reviews

Vicki Pettersson
“An unflinchingly self-assured first novel, chiseled with subtlety and irony into a darkly suspenseful and blessedly surprising story. In exacting detail, and with prose as silky and enticing as her protagonist, Drake has composed a love letter to the vampire genre. I wish I’d written it.”
Kim Harrison
“An intoxicating mix of jet-setting action and sparkling turns of phrase that let me taste the Nile and feel the British fog. NIGHTWALKER is a must-read addition to the urban fantasy genre, filled both with action and satisfying characters.”
Jeaniene Frost
“NIGHTWALKER is an action-packed, stellar debut. Jocelynn Drake will have you coming back for more.”

    Day Hunter

    I recommend you read Nightwalker before tackling this novel. This book is fast paced and action-packed but there were a ton of little battles, as oppose to staying on track with the war, so to speak. Nevertheless, there still wasn't a second to waste and the book is very entertaining. The perception of danger seem to lurk around every corner and most of the times, I was on the edge of my seat; while at other times, I felt like the author was stalling and dragging out the story line with a lot of meaningless, albeit interesting, conflicts. I was a bit annoyed with the ongoing storyline of Danaus and Mira trying killing either other. It's been so overused and it doesn't even seem likely at this point. However, I still recommend this book and I will read the next book Dawnbreaker. If Dawnbreaker turns out to be another stalling tactic, I'm not sure I will continue to read the series.

    This entire series is frustrating and lacks clear cohesive storytelling. Regret reading it and I do NOT recommend it. There doesn't even seem to be any editing or revising.

    This is the second book of the series and I don't know, it just wasn't that great for me. I am not that blogger that goes and bashes the author and the book, but I just didn't like this follow up story. There was a lot of development with the characters, and you find out more about Danaus. I would recommend readers who have started this series to continue reading, there is more to this story and I do want to follow till the end.

    The Best

    This one is my favorite but the storyline in some of the other novels are beter than this one but the characters take yoy by suprise most of the time and one of my favorite urban fantasy series. The for book three hit home for me and i really thought that the first anf fourth books are the best because of the rich diologue and the characters changing throughout the years.

    Review From My Urban Fantasies

    Originally published on my blog, My Urban Fantasies. (myurbanfantasies.blogspot) The naturi are back. Rowe is trying to release his queen. All that is needed is a human sacrifice, at the right place at the right time, to break the seal. The newly formed triad, Sadira, Jabari and vampire hunter Danaus, is humanity's only hope. They will use the most powerful weapon the nightwalkers have to defeat the naturi, Mira. Mira has just learned that she is nothing more than a weapon. She was created to be a tool for the original triad, a way to focus their power through her. Mira finds out that the Coven has been experimenting on her for centuries, seeing who can control her and then wiping her memory of the entire thing. Mira is crushed to learn that Jabari, a man whom she thought was her mentor, savior and friend, thinks she is nothing more than a weapon to be used and disposed of when she is no longer useful. Lucky for Mira that she is still needed because not only can she be used against the naturi, Mira is the one who created the seal that traps the naturi queen. Dayhunter picks up a few moments after where Nightwalker ended. Mira now has to stop the naturi while being tangled up in Coven politics. Mira finds that she is a pawn in a chess game, being manipulated by powerful nightwalkers, each with their own agenda. It's hard to go into more detail without giving away spoilers. Needless to say Dayhunter is much better than Nightwalker. It's action packed and character relationships become more complicated, especially between Mira and Danaus. Mira is quickly becoming my favorite character, even though lately she doesn't know what the hell is going on or who she can trust. Despite all of this Mira tries to stick to her code of honor. Even under the haze of blood lust and fatigue Mira refuses to kill a human when she feeds. My favorite scene is in the church, when Danaus and Mira have this incredible conversation about how good and evil are not as black and white as most people believe. And as an added bonus we find out who/what Danaus is. Sorry boys and girls, it's just to good to spoil.

    Good series!!!

    I really like this series; a perfect balance between vampire politics and just bloody action. Not too strong in the romance catagory, but its slowly building, which i totally appreciate. Looking foward to the slow and easy progression of Danaus's and Mira's relationship.

    Great read in the urban fantasty genre. Perfect for Halloween!

    I like this author. A unique spin on the tortured "good vampire with a soul" genre. Not very much sex or tension in this novel although she sets the stage for it. LOTS OF fighting bad guys- a unique species of evil determined to kill off everyone, yada, yada,yada. I look forward to her next book. Wish she could give her heroine some more "juice" --this girl needs to believe in herself more!

    Same scenario

    This book is alot like the first, Mira is still after Rowe and the only thing that EVER happens is fighting, there is one small love scene but Mira is so cold that it isn't exciting. This series makes no sense to me simply because there after the nurturi to save their vampire race BUT the vampires in these books aren't even worth saving!! There heartless creatures, even Mira who's the main character. The whole relationship between Mira and Danaus is all over the place, In this book we find out exactly what Danaus is and learn that he's a HUGE hypocrite because he's constantly saying that vampires are evil (which in this series they are but..) but he's got something actually EVIL in him and Mira never calls him on it. So far this series makes no sense whatsoever and how can you love a series when the characters are bad? I almost can't stand Mira.

    I read the first and this second book. Good action, ok plot, ok writing. the relationship between her and Darius is still unclear to me, I want to find out and might be the raison I'm reading it. This book is just OK, could be worst and have read worst!

    The second installment of the series by Jocelynn Drake, excellent read. One should read the first though as there are things within this one that will make one wonder unless the first has been read. I've added Ms. Drake to my favorite authors.
