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 nature 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.

Review: This is the 4th installment in the Dark Days series. The naturi have broken free and are going after everyone they feel are a threat to the earth (as they are nature spirits/beings) - including vampires, humans, and every other being that isn't them. Meanwhile, a senator's daughter is killed to bring the vampires out in the open, Danaus is fighting against the bori who holds half his soul, and Mira is going insane while trying to keep up with everything going on.

While this wasn't my favorite out of the series so far, I liked the change in point of view, from Mira in the first three books, to Danaus in this book. I found the story intriguing and it gives foreshadowing of the things to come. Overall, a good read and thankfully the 5th book came out on July 27, 2010!
