Pray for Dawn by Jocelynn Drake

Pray for Dawn is the Fourth installment to Jocelynn Drake’s series but with a different narrator then all the others. The first three books where told by Mira, the 600 year-old firestarter vampire but this one is told by her counterpart Danaus, the vampire hunter. I liked the different POV. Mira is not the most reliable source of reality so it makes sense for the change of narrator.
I really liked the new character Lucy, she is a spit-fire teenager and I agree with Danaus that she reminds me of Mira. And the sexual tension between Danaus and Mira is getting to high for them that they start to act on it but of course the dude messes it up. One of my favorite sense comes from Danaus's screw up.
Flopping down in the chair I had been seating in only moments ago, I put my elbows on my knees and dropped my head into my hands. What a fucking mess!
“Women.” A heavy voice sighed from above me. “Who understands them?”

With the way Pray for Dawn it’s a good thing the wait for Wait for Dusk is not long with its release date being days away on July 27th.

Pray for salvation . . .

Pray for daylight . . .

Murder has pulled Mira out of the shadows and back into the living world . . .

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 naturi 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.
