JOCELYNN DRAKEWAIT FOR DUSKThe Dark Days series follows a vampire named Mira with a fiery disposition and a vampire hunter named Danaus as they are forced to work together to thwart a dark race from its attempts to wipe out mankind.  Over the length of several books, Mira and Danaus have come to respect each other and see each other as comrades in arms.  They’ve even become reluctant friends, even though there is a lot of mistrust on both sides. 

PRAY FOR DAWN is the fourth book in the series and was just released at the end of June.  I really enjoyed writing this book because it gave me the chance for the first time to tell the story from Danaus’s point of view.  This was an interesting struggle because it was the first time that I had ever tried to tell anything from a guy’s point of view.  However, I enjoyed it because it was the first time that I was able to dig deeper into this mysterious guy’s past and do a little exploring as to why he acts the way he does.  Oddly enough, the book even delves a little into Mira’s own past and looks at how fragile her state of mind can be at times.

WAIT FOR DUSK is the fifth book in the series and was just released at the end of July.  In this book, I returned to Mira’s point of view and took my characters on a trip to Budapest.  Since I’ve never been to this location, I was forced to do a lot of research, which I thoroughly enjoyed.  Budapest is an interesting and beautiful city.  In WAIT FOR DUSK, Mira and Danaus’s burgeoning relationship is put to the test as someone tries very hard to come between them by manipulating one of Danaus’s weaknesses.

Overall, the Dark Days series has been a wonderful roller-coaster of fun to write and I hope my readers enjoy it as well.
