REVIEW: Pray for Dawn (Dark Days #4) by Jocelynn Drake

Rating: 3 out of 5 stars, Genre: Fiction/Vampires, Pages: 367, Level: Easy

Book Description:

Pray for salvation…

Pray for daylight…

Murder has pulled Mira out of the shadows and back into the living world…

As the fire-wielding enforcer of the nightwalker coven wrestles with the mind-destroying ghosts of her dark past, the slaying of a senator’s daughter in Savannah threatens to expose her kind to the brilliant light of day. The dawn of chaos has come. The naturi have broken free of their eternal prison to feed on the defenseless and unbelieving of an unprepared Earth.

Mira and Danaus- vampire and vampire slayer- must unite to prevent the annihilation of their separate races. But for Danaus the challenge is intensified, for he must also fight the bori who covets his soul. And Mira, the nightwalker he must protect- whose power is the Earth’s last hope- is rapidly going insane.

Pray for Dawn is the fourth in the Dark Days series about vampires, well, mostly vampires. As with its predecessors, it is entertaining enough for me to finish out the series, mostly because I am waiting to read about the two main characters hooking up. You get a little preview in Pray for Dawn, but no more.

One of my biggest critiques of this series is that it feels as if Drake is trying so hard to prove that female authors are capable of writing a good fight scene. Unfortunately, she overdoes it in my opinion. There are so many fight scenes that I got bored. Less fighting! More sex!

In all honesty, I think the Dark Days series will be enjoyed by those readers who love everything vampire whereas occasional readers of the vampire sub-genre are probably less likely to enjoy it. In my opinion, it is okay, hence the 3-star rating.
