"Daywalker is the winner in the science fiction category of the 2009 Los Angeles Book Festival.
Twenty-five-year-old Jesse Collins is an enigma: he is half vampire, half Landian, and he was raised by humans. The humans call him a dhampir, an abomination born of a mortal mother and vampire father; they say he should never have been born. Vampires call him a daywalker, a hybrid created to hunt and kill other vampires during the day; they say he should be killed. The Landians believe Jesse represents a power that must either be controlled or destroyed.
But there are also those who believe Jesse could be their salvation-if he can manage his warring genetics and temper his volatile emotions. A war between the Landians and the human Confederation of Planets is imminent, and Jesse may be the only one who can stop it. He is torn between his three worlds, unable to commit to only one. He longs to be normal, but he can't deny his vampiric nature or ignore the telepathy and empathy he inherited from his Landian mother. To complicate his life further, Jesse is being trained by the humans to fight the Landians as part of an elite military unit called the Shadowmen.
Opposing loyalties weigh on Jesse's heart and mind as he heads into battle to save the Confederation of Planets in this gripping science-fiction adventure."
