The chains that have bound the naturi are now broken and as they roam the earth bent on taking their revenge. Mira, the fire starter is determined to defeat them and put them back where they belong. With the help of her love, vampire hunter Danaus, Mira needs all her strength, her power and her allies as the naturi army comes knocking on her door. The days are dark and about to get darker still as the lines between friend and foe, allies and enemies blur and the final war is reached between nightwalkers and the nature. Will Mira be able to stop the coming onslaught and still live to see another day?

The final book in the exciting Dark Days series is here and Ms. Drake delivers on action packed story to end all stories. With amazing cast of characters, a few plot twists I didn’t see coming and an ending that leaves you gasping for breath, Ms. Drake delivers one of her best work yet in BURN THE NIGHT. With her amazing storytelling, this author delivers the finale readers have been clamoring for. The writing is tight, story flows smoothly and the characters weave a spell around you as you try to see if Mira and her friends & allies make it to see another day.

Mira is a vampire who is also a fire starter, feared by her kind, destined to do great things but first she needs to lick her wounds from pasty events. Too bad she doesn’t get that time. The naturi are bent on coming out of the shadows and have their revenge…too bad the nightwalkers are determined to keep them there. A war is brewing but Mira is tired of fighting. BURN THE NIGHT is a story of not just Mira and her lover, Danaus, it is also Nyx’s story as well. The point of view switches between Mira and Nyx so be prepared as some may not enjoy this aspect of the final book. The growths of the characters are amazing. I loved how Mira and the rest of the characters grew in all the books and as they get ready for this final battle, the readers are on the edge of their seat, hoping for Mira’s survival and the Naturi’s defeat.

The ending of BURN THE NIGHT is a story that isn’t just a cookie cutter type of ending of a series but one fraught with twists and turns that keep you on the edge of your seat. This is a story that is best to savor and enjoy, as you find yourself rooting for Mira and Danaus to win the day. This is a truly enjoyable book that when you flip that last page you need to read it again. I do encourage that you read the series in order as each book builds upon the past ones. BURN THE NIGHT is one wonderful read that I can’t wait to read again. I look forward to seeing what this author has in store next for her readers.
