REVIEW: Dawnbreaker (Dark Days #3) by Jocelynn Drake

Rating: 3 out of 5 stars, Genre: Fiction/Vampires, Pages: 384, Level: Easy

Book Description from Barnes & Noble:

“The dawn brings new terror for the creatures of the night…

Those of her race fear Mira for the lethal fire she bends to her will- a power unique among nightwalkers, both a gift… and a curse.

The naturi despise Mira for what she is- as they prepare the final sacrifice that will destroy the barriers between the worlds. And once the naturi are unchained, blood, chaos, and horror will reign supreme on Earth.

Mira can trust only Danaus, the more-than-mortal vampire slayer, though he is sworn to destroy her kind. And now, as the day approaches when titanic forces will duel under cover of darkness, destiny draws them toward an apocalyptic confrontation at Machu Picchu. But all is not lost, for a wild card has been dealt to them: a rogue enemy princess who can change the balance of power and turn the dread tide.”

Dawnbreaker is another entertaining addition to the Dark Days series.

If you are really into these types of vampire novels, i.e. beautiful vampires finding their way through confusing politics and prophecies, fighting other supernatural creatures, occasionally getting hot and heavy, then you will enjoy Dawnbreaker and the Dark Days series, at least the first three books. 1. There is no guarantee you will enjoy the rest of the books in the series, just look at my review for the last in the Sookie Stackhouse series. 2. There’s no hot and heavy in Dawnbreaker that I remember.

That last comment is the problem with this series. While it is mildly entertaining, it just feels like more of the same old stuff. Planning, fighting, planning fighting, suggestive look, planning, fighting, planning, big battle, end of book. At least throw in a mommy porn sex scene once or twice. Alas, there is none. Also, I don’t remember a lot of it. That’s not good, and that’s why it only gets three stars.

Anyway, if you enjoy the series, you will enjoy Dawnbreaker. It was entertaining enough for me to continue with the series.
