Review: Dawnbreaker by Jocelynn Drake
After the gate was opened, Mira has finally returned to Savannah, her haven. However, the war is not yet over with the naturi and they are threatening Mira's only home. Naturi are all over the city hunting her down, killing the people in Savannah, as well. The naturi are driving her away from her home.
Mira needs to prevent Aurora from entering earth. They need to stop the ritual in Machu Pichu, again. With the help of Jabari, Danaus, Shelly, an earth witch, & Cynnia, the naturi princess, Mira must risk her life again for her people. Only this time, she doesn't know if she will come back out of Machu Pichu alive.
This book seriously has more action than the last one. The big battle with the naturi has finally come. This book is a great way to, somehow, partially end the saga of the naturi. This book contains a lot of heart pumping scenes, from the final battle to the kidnapping. I wasn't able to stop myself from actually finishing the book. My bags are big and dark because of this and I have a floating head for my classes.
Technically, the whole book is about stopping the ritual, which means Mira needs to enhance her powers to stop it. I love that Mira has finally tried to improve her abilities. Though, a bit lacking, it's totally an improvement. There are still a part where problems are piling up for Mira but it is totally less than the last 2 books. Still, I pity Mira for her problems and I hate Barrett in this book for being a total ass. Also, Mira seems to be more in control of the situations in this book, which is a total plus. Girl Power! However, she still can't stop Jabari & Danaus from making her a puppet.
On the relationship side, still no progress, folks. I think a lot of us are getting frustrated with how slow they are actually opening up to each other. Though, I could say that they are much more than friends now. They just don't know it yet. More trust & dependence. I can't wait for them to realize what they are actually feeling for each other.
Can't wait to read the next book.
PS: Sorry for the short review. School just started and it has been a chaos.
