Mira is now an elder after the Coven calls her to take her place among them. But Mira has more then just vampire politics on her mind for the feared naturi now roam the world and humans and vampires alike are not safe from them. Betrayal also looms for Mira as her trust is shattered by one person she never thought would do this to her and the vampires and humans she protects.

WAITING FOR DUSK is one fast paced wild ride from start to finish. When we open the first page of this fifth Dark Days book, we find Mira being beaten by her biological father, the devil, and powerless. Add that with Mira being told it is time to take her place as a vampire elder and to fight the feared naturi, well let’s just say things go from bad to worse that only get worse when her ally, the one she trusts completely betrays her in a way that shatters Mira. All I got to say is WOW! This book is one story that readers will fall in love with. I do have to recommend reading the series in order as each story capitalizes on the past book(s). All the reader can do once you get involved in this series is take a seat and hang on as it is about to get a bit turbulent for Mira. Ms. Drake is an eloquent storyteller who knows how to hook her reader from the first page and deliver a story that leaves them breathless.

Ms. Drake’s characters in the Dark Days novels are very well written, complex and are equally feared yet enthralling. It doesn’t matter if you love them or hate them, Ms. Drake gives you characters you can’t help but love to hate no matter what. The secondary characters also help keep the story moving at a nice even pace. Mira though is the star of the series as a master of fire as well as being a vampire though it pains her to know that other vampires fear her for her power is one that can really hurt a vampire. I just love Mira. She is a strong heroine who knows how to get things done, regardless of how she feels about it. She comes across as a tough yet vulnerable person who knows how to be hard for her job and soft when she is with her love, Danaus or with friends.

WAIT FOR DUSK is one wild ride from start to finish and I urge you to hang on to your hats as you follow Mira’s adventures in trying to stay alive and in one peace as she battles the naturi as well as the vampires who want her dead. Ms. Drake is one talented author and I can not wait to see what is in store in the final books of the series.
