Description from amazon.com:
Author Lara Adrian returns to the mesmerizing world of the Midnight Breed, following new characters In this pulse-pounding and thrillingly sensual novel, New York Times bestselling into a dark future where an uneasy peace can unravel into war—and a great betrayal can mask an all-consuming love.
Twenty years after the terror of First Dawn—when mankind learned that vampires lived secretly among them—the threat of violence reigns as the two species struggle to coexist. The only group preserving the fragile harmony is the Order, an elite cadre of Breed warriors dedicated to protecting humans and vampires alike. And in this precarious world of torn loyalties and shattered trust, Mira, a fiery squad captain, finds that every fight bears an intensely personal cost.
Raised among the Order, Mira has always believed in the warrior’s code of swift—and even lethal—justice. But the one thing she desires more than the Order’s hard-won acceptance is Kellan Archer, a sexy but troubled Breed fighter. In love with him since childhood, Mira once broke through his tough exterior during an unexpected night of rapture, but the next day he mysteriously disappeared, never to return.
Kellan didn’t think he would ever see Mira again—or have to confront the truth of why he left. After abandoning the Order years ago, he now leads a band of human rebels intent on carrying out their own vigilante rule of law. Yet a high-profile kidnapping assignment brings him face-to-face with the past he sought to avoid, and the striking woman he has tried desperately to forget. And as tensions mount and the risk of bloodshed grows, Kellan and Mira must take sides—between the competing missions that dominate their lives, and the electrifying passion that claims their hearts.
Lara Adrian’s Midnight Breed Series continues with the next generation of Breed Warriors in Edge of Dawn. Just when you might think a series would get stale, Ms Adrian proves that sending a series on to further glory is totally possible. I am a huge fan of this series.
I’m not going to repeat a synopsis that has been given in the book description and by others. Suffice it to say there is pulse pounding action, a passionate love story, a falling from grace and eventual redemption and through it all, the feeling that we know these warriors intimately. This welcome addition to the series can be read alone but you really should treat yourself to what went before also. Dive in here and then start from the beginning with Kiss of Midnight. I’m sure you will understand why this series has multitudes of followers.
Note from Deet: I discovered this series, Adrian’s Midnight Breed hunky warriors series, shortly after becoming hooked on romantic vampires in the Twilight series and the Sookie Stackhouse series. From there I went on to J.R. Ward and Sherrilee Kenyon’s series. It seemed that vampires were only getting better and better, especially when I discovered D.B. Reynold’s Vampires in America Series. I’m always open to discovering new vampires so if you have suggestions send them my way.
