From Library Journal:

Lee Nez, a Navajo and New Mexico patrolman, stumbles upon the attempted hijacking of a U.S. Army convoy. In the struggle that follows, Lee is seriously wounded but not before he has a chance to hide the convoy's valuable cargo-a container of plutonium. Hijacker Wolfgang Muller uses his vampiric blood to heal Lee's wounds, but this is not an altruistic act. Muller wants to know where the plutonium is hidden, but Lee refuses to divulge the information. Because of the mixing of human and vampire blood, Lee has taken on many telling characteristics-aversion to sunlight, enhanced physical powers, and immortality. He has in fact become a "nightwalker," the Navajo equivalent of a vampire. Although the authors have a command of Navajo culture and lore, this novel falls short owing to tedious dialog, wooden characters, and a predictable plot. Still, followers of their Ella Clah novels will probably find this book of interest. Second Sunrise is the first in the "Lee Nez Night Walker" series. [CBS is developing a series based on Ella Clah, which may increase demand for back titles as well as this new series.-Ed.]-Patricia Altner, Information Seekers, Columbia, MD (c) Copyright 2010.
