Quote of the day: “I’d have been dead a long time ago if not for my friends, one of whom had just jumped off the cliff after me.
I’d have been a lot more appreciative if he hadn’t pushed me first." Cassandra Palmer ― Hunt the Moon by Karen Chance

Review: Pray For Dawn by Jocelynn Drake

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

My rating:
-Frigging Amazing! Why did it have to end?!


Pray for salvation . . .

Pray for daylight . . .

Murder has pulled Mira out of the shadows and back into the living world...more Pray for salvation . . .

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.

The Synopsis is pretty big and has enough detail of the plot, so I'm just going to talk about characters and what I thought of the book overall alright? :)

My Thoughts:

WOW! Ms. Drake has outdone herself this time. I'm a fan of this series from the start and after reading each book, I cant wait to read the next, but after reading this book, I'm left BEGGING for the next. Wait for Duck cannot could out fast enough. I thought no other book would have a cliff hanger like Dreamfever by Karen Marie Moning had, but Pray For Dawn did. July 27th, can't come fast enough!

If your a fan of this series, you must know how alluring this series can be. Mira is an amazing female vampire and Danaus is a powerful male who is only about half human, and the rest...well, it's a secret for those who haven't' read the series!
But what I loved most about this book is that we got to walk in Danaus's shoes. I didn't expect we would never have a full story through Danaus's perspective and first POV, but we get it in this book, and it's well worth the wait.
Danaus is a trouble character, and I never new how to take him when it came to Mira. I knew I had feelings for her, but I wanted to know which kind exactly. Although, he doesn't pour his feelings out exactly, he does open up more than ever..Even if it's just to himself. What was odd, was seeing Mira from someone else's perspective. She was different. Not bad, different, just different. I seen her more as a female, and less of a vampire. Just as Danaus starts to. And we get to see her fights and actions in a new light. I liked the change, and I also can't wait to be back in Mira's head and see Danaus's facial expressions being described again. I sort of missed how she takes everything he does into consideration and we get to read of it.

Danaus and Mira have been a favorite duo of mine for a while now. They have been building their relationship through each book, and I'm so happy what came of them. If you read these books, then you know what I'm talking about. They are an original pair, who will take over your thoughts, even days after reading about them. Danaus and Mira master the 'Love/Hate' phrase, and Ms. drake masters the vampire genre! She is one of my favorite authors and I will be first in line on the 27th for Wait for Dusk. You better not get in my way! ;P
