by Livia Blackburne
August 4th 2015 by Disney HyperionAfter learning the truth about her bloodlines, Kyra can’t help but feel like a monster.
Though she’s formed a tentative alliance with the Palace, Kyra must keep her identity a secret or risk being hunted like the rest of her Demon Rider kin. Tristam and the imprisoned assassin James are among the few who know about her heritage, but when Tristam reveals a heartbreaking secret of his own, Kyra’s not sure she can trust him. And with James’s fate in the hands of the palace, Kyra fears that he will give her away to save himself.
As tensions rise within Forge's Council, and vicious Demon Rider attacks continue in surrounding villages, Kyra knows she must do something to save her city. But she walks a dangerous line between opposing armies: will she be able to use her link to the Demon Riders for good, or will her Makvani blood prove to be deadly?
In this spellbinding sequel to Midnight Thief, Kyra and Tristam face their biggest battle yet as they grapple with changing allegiances, shocking deceit, and vengeful opponents
Much Thanks to Disney Book Group for free copy .
I really enjoyed reading this book and even though i read this first before i read Book 1, it wasn't hard to follow along at all.
Kyra is half human and shape shifter but she is apart from both of her worlds and she is scared of her demon blood lineage, and that is adding to the fear and mistrust of the humans of forge. The Village she is staying at with her friends and family.
This picks up after the first book so some events are recalled, there is a war going on between the demon riders and the humans. Though Kyra's only allegiance is to those she chooses ts hard to stay in between the war and soon she has to choose to either embrace what she is.
All the while there is lingering feelings between krya and Tristam, a soldier for the Red council, there are complications. She's a shape shifter and neither of them trust kyra's blood line and with Tristam's family pushing him to marry a noble.
To be honest the romance was the last thing on my mind, i was more into finding out kayras backstory and about her lineage. Daughter of Dusk had everything i wanted , intrigue, mystery a whole of action and some romance. I Couldn't put it down .I'm glad i picked this book up and i can't wait to go back and read the first one.
I give this book four crowns
