A new day dawns blood red
A master of fire, Mira is the last hope for the world. For centuries she has secretly enforced the history-altering edicts of the Triad. Now she and her unlikely ally—the human vampire hunter, Danaus—have come to Venice, home of the nightwalker rulers. But there is no safety in the ancient city, for the threat of conflict is in the wind . . . with unholy alliances and earth-shattering betrayals taking hideous form in the shadows.
Banished for eons beyond the world's boundaries, the malevolent naturi prepare to feed once again upon a vulnerable earth—and treachery is opening wide the portal that will enable their dread re-emergence. The great battle that has always been Mira's destiny is looming, and she must remain powerful in the face of a shocking revelation: that Danaus, the only creature she dares to trust, is something more than the man he claims to be . . .
I am two books into this series and already in love. I just can't get enough of these UF/PNR meshes. This book has a UF feel with enough of the sensual not to be a tease. I love the characters, the drama, and the plot of this book....so basically everything.
I think Mira is pretty bad ass as well as Danaus. We find out what he is in this book and I get kind of angry because he is (not going to tell you) something that everyone she be shunning, not him getting to shun everyone else. I also got mad about half way through the book when he did something that just wasn't kosher, with Mira or with me. I was totally feeling the same thing that Mira was feeling as I was reading. This author has that ability, so watch out.
There is also a scene towards the end that is a little like, wtf? I get why it's there but I also am thinking the author needed to throw some smex in there. I listed the few things that pinched my nerves but that doesn't mean I don't adore this book. They already set it up for the next book and I can't wait to see what will happen in Mira's world next.
