Urban Fantasy Review & Contest: BURN THE NIGHT by Jocelynn Drake

Like your urban fantasy hot (literally, because we’re dealing with a firestarter here) and dangerous? The Dark Days series by Jocelynn Drake is all that, and today we’re looking at the final book in the series, Burn the Night. Read on to win a copy!

THE OFFICIAL BLURB: The Great Awakening approaches . . . After eons in exile, the naturi have broken their chains and now roam the Earth bent on revenge. It is the sworn duty of Mira, the Fire Starter, to protect the nightwalker race—though even she may be powerless to withstand the horrific onslaught. As Mira and her brave lover, the vampire slayer Danaus, stand ready to do battle, thousands of winged shapeshifters darken the skies. The war of ultimate extermination has begun, and the battleground is Mira’s home turf. The humans don’t yet recognize the doom descending upon them. And the nightwalkers will surely perish unless they unite with outcast naturi who claim to want peace. But these unexpected “allies” are the same demons who have long worked for Mira’s destruction—and in these darkest of days the lines between friend and foe will blur treacherously before the bloody end of all things.

MY THOUGHTS: I found the first Dark Days novel, Nightwalker, a tough read, and Mira a tough kickass chick to love (although vampire hunter Danaus had me from the word go), but this series really grew on me and now I find it sad to say good-bye with this, the sixth installment. Drake’s worldbuilding is beautiful and complex, and the war with the naturi that has built to a crescendo in this book didn’t disappoint. Think winged shapeshifters, Machu Picchu, and unexpected allies. All good.

  3. Heh, that was my impression of the series. I was given the 2nd, so went out and bought Nightwalker. (I *have* to read series in order!) By the time I finished Dayhunter I was hooked!

    Looking forward to getting Burn the Night onto the TBR Pile (as opposed to TBR List…) Not so much looking forward to another series I like ending. *sigh* I know they all have to end sometime, but it seems too many are ending NOW. :p

    Thanks for all the lovely giveaway chances!

    P.S. When do we get a cover to ogle on Amazon’s Royal Street listing? 🙂

  4. LOL. The ROYAL STREET cover is done except for a minor tweak–I’m just waiting for the go-ahead to post it. It’s by the same artist who did the Cassandra Clare Mortal Instruments covers and I love love love it!

  5. Love this series and I can’t wait to see how it ends though it will be a little sad.
