Book Review: Nightwalker
Book 1 in the Dark Days series
AUTHOR: Jocelynn Drake
GENRE: Urban fantasy, vampires
PREMISE: A female vampire teams up with a vampire hunter against her better judgement.
MY REVIEW: My thoughts about this book can be summed up in one action: shrug. It's a pretty standard Urban fantasy book. About the only unique thing going for it is that the main character is a female vampire but even that has been done a few times (Bloodshot by Cherie Priest for example, and Bloodshot did it better in my opinion).
It's got okay world building, okay characters, okay writing. There's nothing really much to whine about and yet it's nothing really memorable either. This series is clearly just there for the people that want more vampire urban fantasy. Which is okay sometimes you have books that are just there to fill a demand for them.
So I don't think this series is a must read. You certainly could do worse. But you could do better also. If you really want a female vampire I'd go with Bloodshot instead.
WHO SHOULD READ: Urban fantasy fans
MY RATING: Three out of Five shrugs
