Overview

There is no sanctuary in the night . . .

Feared even by her own kind for her mastery of fire, the nightwalker Mira is summoned by the coven to take her rightful place as Elder. But with this honor comes grave responsibility—a commitment to the annihilation of the unleashed naturi. For now the foul creatures walk the earth—and neither vampire nor human will survive their horrific onslaught.

A tide of blood is sweeping relentlessly across the European continent, as Mira is dispatched to Budapest for the most devastating test yet of her astonishing powers—and falls into a well-laid trap. With the dark secrets that haunt her growing darker by the hour, she must confront the terrible truth of her past and protect her fragile sanity in the face of unanticipated treachery—a betrayal by her trusted ally, her beloved enemy, the vampire slayer Danaus.

Editorial Reviews

Jeaniene Frost
“NIGHTWALKER is an action-packed, stellar debut. Jocelynn Drake will have you coming back for more.”
Vicki Pettersson on Nightwalker
“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.”
Romantic Times BOOKclub
“The action is riveting, the violence intense and the plot gripping. Score another win for Drake!”

    Misleading

    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!

    Review From My Urban Fantasies

    Originally published on my blog, My Urban Fantasies.
    (myurbanfantasies.blogspot)

    Wait For Dusk starts seconds after where Pray For Dawn ends. Mira has just been kidnapped by the "witch" who helped Danaus and Mira banish the bori. The "witch" is actually a shapeshifting god who's been know by many names including Loki, Coyote and Raven. He asks Mira to call him Nick, short for Old Nick which is another name for Satan. Nick is also Mira's biological father. Although Nick is super pissed that Mira has become a nightwalker, he has decided to modify his plans instead of just killing her. Mira has to complete a task before Nick decides to move forward with those plans. Mira has to learn to take control of Danaus' and Jabori's powers. Nick refuses to let anyone have control of Mira other than himself of course. If Mira fails, Nick will make her human again and force Mira to have his child. Eww. And that's just the first chapter!

    Valerio shows up a few minutes after Nick has left Mira. It's time for Mira to take her place on the coven. Things suck for Mira, as usual, when she arrives in Venice but the danger does not truly begin until Mira arrives in Budapest to rid it of the naturi. In Wait For Dust Mira is fighting on several different fronts. Mira's sure Macaire wants her dead, the naturi are attacking, to make Nick happy she'll have to control Jabari, there's Nick himself and the one person who Mira trusted most betrays her. If it was not for the book blurb I would have never seen Danaus' betrayal coming. It's sad, some of it could have been avoided if Mira and Danaus' actually talked to each other like adults.

    Wait For Dusk is definitely worth 4 stars. I loved watching the relationship between Mira and Danaus develop, despite the fact that Danaus acted like a rat bastard. This book is definitely a must read.

    Readers will appreciate this urban fantasy

    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.

    Fun, fast, series with a very likable heroine, but Danaus is a total jerk. He is supposed to be much older than Mira, but he sure hasn't learned much in his long existence. He is sullen, petulent, juvenile and unlikable. But I will read the whole series because of Mira.

    Decent Read, but nothing new

    I've read the whole series and enjoyed the first 4 quite a bit. Sadly, this book didn't offer up anything new and is a weak addition. I will check out the next installment and keep my fingers crossed that it picks up.

    Drake Does it Again!

    Drake does it again! With various lycanthropes, warlocks, vampires, naturi and bori all wanting Mira dead, she has more than her hands full. What's a fire starter to do?

    Thank heavens for Danaus, an honest-to-goodness vampire slayer with unusual powers of his own who just so happens to be on Mira's side. Go figure! With their powers entwined-when needed-countless friends ready to help.and even a few "associates", add to that an endless supply of rage, and you have the makings for one hell of a fight!

    Mira's father is Satan himself-goes by the name of Nick-and enjoys torturing her in very special and colorful ways. Having the ability to use and manipulate fire, I guess she's her father's daughter. Seriously though, in this continuation from "Pray for Dawn", Drake kept me on the edge of my seat once again. Putting this book down was nothing short of the same torture her characters endured on this fabulous journey she's created.

    No one does it better than Jocelynn Drake. Only she could make a romance between a vampire and slayer and make it believable, beautiful and fun to read.

    Thank you, Jocelynn, for showing me what vampires can do and what they're about. Thank you for weaving together a great tale of danger, intrigue, violence, loyalty, sacrifice and love. I have a new genre to read and add to my quickly growing repertoire. I can't wait for the next book!
