Overview

Out of the shadows…

For more than a decade, Caro Barrett has had doubts about the death of her husband, who disappeared while looking for a tribe of day-walking vampires in an African rainforest. Now, their daughter is struggling through her teenage years without a father. Waiting in the wings is an ancient vampire ready to possess Caro’s heart—and to protect them both from harm. And, with her husband declared legally dead, Caro feels it is finally time to move on…

A hemisphere away in a windowless compound, an Ottoman vampire lies dying from a rare blood disease, which has made him vulnerable to the faintest bit of light. Yet he is determined to vanquish its power over him—to feel the sun on his face one last time. And in Caro’s darkest fears he will be lifted into the light of day…

Editorial Reviews

Kirkus Reviews
Half-vampire Carol Barrett faces familiar-seeming perils as well as romance in the second of a series of paranormal thrillers. Caro's vampire biochemist husband, Jude, vanished in the jungles of Gabon after accepting a dubious commission from the pharmaceutical corporation Al-Dîn. Caro now raises their daughter Vivi alone, hiding her from the vampire cabal that believes that Vivi is the prophesied child who signals the end of their race. As Caro slowly accepts that she will not see her husband again, she allows herself to fall in love with Raphael, an ancient vampire playboy. Meanwhile, Al-Dîn's operatives embark on a murderous search for Vivi, whose genome could hold the key to permitting vampires to withstand the sun. Maitland knows how to write tight action and steamy sex scenes, as well as vividly describe exotic locations. She's also got some definite insight into the mind of the teenage girl. Sadly, though, Book 2 of this series (Acquainted with the Night, 2011) seems remarkably like a retread of Book 1, just with different players. In both novels, Caro moves beyond her tragic romantic past to seize love and have transcendental sex. She also spends each volume on the run from a pharmaceutical company that employs vampires who are so selfishly, uncontrollably violent that they murder people essential to fulfilling their or their employer's goals. It's refreshing to encounter vampire antagonists who are simply nasty, as opposed to magnetically attractive in a sinister way; however, most of them behave so shortsightedly and short-temperedly it's incomprehensible how they manage to survive their decades of undeath, let alone accomplish anything of substance. Above the common run of vampire fiction, but not all that it could be.
Library Journal
After Caro Barrett's husband is officially declared dead, she prepares to get on with her life and considers accepting the protection of an ancient vampire who can use his powers on her behalf. Danger to her and her child, however, lurks half a world away, in the form of a dying Ottoman vampire in the sequel to Acquainted With the Night.

    Our Review, by LITERAL ADDICTION's Pack Alpha - Michelle L. Olso

    Our Review, by LITERAL ADDICTION's Pack Alpha - Michelle L. Olson:
    *ARC Received from the Publisher in exchange for an honest Review

    When this book came in the mail from the Publisher and I looked up the series on GoodReads I knew immediately that I'd want to read
    them. I didn't, however, expect to enjoy it as much as I did. 

    This is a long book, it's 560 pages, and I absolutely could not put it down! My first reaction upon finishing it was this: "Oh wow! I rarely cry
    over books, but the hold that this book had over me & the ending had me in tears for sure. Outside of that, it was like a James
    Bond/Bourne Legacy flick meets Blood Diamond on paper, all with vampires... Super strong & sassy heroines. Incredible heroes.
    Utterly despicable villains, & a story that just wouldn't quit. I loved it all!!"

    Husband and wife, Caro and Jude, are madly in love but in need of money. They have a 3 year old daughter whose very existence sparks
     fanaticism and has had them on the run for years just to be safe. You see, Caro is a hybrid, a 1/2 vampire, and Jude is a vampire, but
    wasn't when Vivi was conceived, thus making Vivi a 1/4 vampire and the talk of the entire immortal race for one reason or another;
    especially those that are of the paranoid or superstitious variety.

    In order to make some extra money for the family, Jude decides to take a position in the African rainforests for a company called Al Din,
    utilizing his skills as a biochemist to study a new species of bat that has been discovered, but he has no idea what he's walking into
    there and he mysteriously disappears, leaving long time friend of the family and Godfather to Vivi, Raphael, to step in once again as
    protector and continue the farce he's played for well over a decade, denying his feelings for Caro while trying to convince himself that just
    being part of her and Vivi's life is enough.

    *sigh* Oh how I'd love to tell you more, but I don't do spoiler reviews, so you're just going to have to check it out for yourself to find out
    what happens! :) Let me just say this in addition to my little summation in my intro above - While this book is an Urban Fantasy it felt so
    very real! While unbelievably action packed and full of twists and turns, danger, intrigue and surprises, it all felt like it could happen
    (albeit with a little stretch of the imagination of course, but that's why we read UF and PNR, right!?). It also has some wonderful romance,
    and was so vividly written in every aspect that I truly was drawn in and invested in everything the book had to offer.

    LITERAL ADDICTION gives Hunting Daylight 5 Skulls and highly recommends it! The last bits of the book took my breath away and I can
    only hope that the next installment shakes things up even more. I have found a new top 10 UF series and can't wait for more from Piper.

    Okay

    The ending was lame and ruined what could have been a much better novel.

    Mediocre.

    Measurably better than Maitland's previous book in this beginning series. Rather light and casual semi-mystery story.

    So much more than a paranormal romance I¿ve discovered a new ser

    So much more than a paranormal romance
    I’ve discovered a new series!  Today’s Book of the Day is two-for-one.  Fellow Tennessee writer Michael Lee West has duplicated herself into writing alter ego Piper Maitland.  Berkley sent “Hunting Daylight” by Piper Maitland for review.  Along with it, they sent the first book in the series, “Acquainted with the Night.”  I started reading the series and fell in love with both of them.  If you read the cover of “Hunting Daylight,” the books come across as a paranormal romance.  That shortchanges both and is far from truth.  These are books about vampires for smart readers.  Romance is the least of it.  There’s action, strong characters, fast, easy writing, science, humor, suspense, murder, thrills, romance, smart concept, delightful plotting, and even the author commitment to not always write outcomes in the way that readers might want.  It’s a ballsy ride.  In a literary genre full of vampires jumping page-to-page confusing action with plot, this is a novel for the thinking reader.  To enjoy the story to the fullest, start with the first one and read forward.  I started with the second, stopped, went to the first, and was glad I did.  Both books are over 500 pages and you’ll read them with the ease of 200.
