For centuries Mira has been a nightwalker—an unstoppable enforcer for a nameless organization that manipulates earth-shaking events from the darkest shadows. But elemental mastery over fire sets her apart from others of her night-prowling breed... and may e all that prevents her doom.

Thi foe she now faces is human: the vampire hunter called Danaus, who has already destroyed so many undead. For Mira, the time has come to hunt... or be hunted.

Different characters mime appropriate awe and ask staged questions, like " Are n't you called the 'Fire Starter'? " to signal the reader.

Drake 's writing suffers from omniscient first person, so that Mira tells us her skin glows " like white marble " and relays non-person male lead Danaus' thoughts- " something about me bothered him "- even though she 's no mind-reader.

Once we meet the less pompous Mira whom we hould have met at page one, we wil finally stomach her narration, and he plot speeds along.

What I did fee, though, why I feel like it deserves more than 1 stars, is the implicatio that it 's different ( and I loooove different!) How was it different? Well, the main villai is a 600-year-old ( or 800?), extremely powerful being.

Unfortunately though I finished reading " Nightwalker " a few days ago, I 'm actuall having difficulty extracting myself from Ms Drake 's world.Mira has been a vampire for over 600 years.

She does, unsurprisingly, kill any humans or supernatural creatures who threaten to expose or disturb the comfortable life she 's carved out in Savannah.

Surely when a slayer appears in her territory, she agrees to extract all the information she can before she kills him.

Fabulous! If you like your urban fantasies a bit ark, with strong sexual elements but no real 'romance', at least not yet ... I ca n't recommend " Nightwalker " highly enough.

Good ending twist, definitely interested in how the plot progresses in the firs book.The tone of memoir is extremel ark, more like Jim Butcher, or early Anne Rice etc, than the lighter stuff we 're used to, and I like that as a change.

She 's likable, caring, protective, and completely Bad-Ass! This very powerful Nightwalker Mira battles an army of Naturi, a group with two main goals sacrifice humans and destroy Nightwalkers alike.

Danaus, a nearly 2,000 year old hunter seeks the elp of Mira to eliminate the Naturi, with the only promise that he would defend her so that he may do the honors of destroying her life.

On multiple occasions I wanted to scream into the nove and say " rip eachothers clothes off already " Danaus is a smolderingly sexy, powerful, strong, attentive, gentle, caring, protector of Mira Vampire Hunter.They both want eachother and they struggle throughout this whol book fighting it.

;) Also I enjoyed another powerful Ancient Nightwalker Jabari, one minute he loves Mira as a mentor the next he 's promising to kil her because she has disobeyed him.

Jabari wishe to use Mira and manipulate her to his own will and with Danaus around he feels threatened.
