Stuntwoman Dawn Madison continues her search for her father and her battle against the vampires infesting Hollywood in this uninspired sequel to 2007’s Night Rising . Dawn is still dealing with the painful legacy of her beautiful movie star mother, Eva Claremont, and her fear that both her parents have lost their lives to L.A.’s undead underground. Now, hoping that the mysterious Jonah will lead her to the underground and her father, Dawn has to track down a killer who, like everyone else in L.A., wants to be famous. Along the way she’ll have to decide whether she can trust her monster-hunting comrades, pill-popping psychic Kiko Daniels and chemistry wizard Breisi Montoya, or her friend Jacqueline, who bears an eerie resemblance to Eva. A preponderance of dangling plot points and red herrings may leave readers, like the heroine, on uncertain footing with no clear way to turn. (Feb.)
