Edge of Dawn

The Midnight Breed, #11

Edge of Dawn gives new life to the Midnight Breed series. The wildly popular series continues with a whole new generation of Breed warriors and the amazing women they love. Lara Adrian takes the series on an action packed thrill ride with this story of lost love that refused to die. Mira's world was torn apart when she lost the man she loved. Now that she's been gifted with a second chance at love...nothing but death could tear them apart.

It's been twenty years since First Dawn, when the existence of the Breed was revealed to the world. Worldwide panic led to an epic battle between Breed and mankind. Now, just as peace is finally on the horizon, a powerful new enemy emerges...a deadly threat to human and Breed alike.

Mira has trained and fought hard to win her place within the warrior ranks of the Order. But she has never forgotten the warrior she loved and lost eight years ago. When a diplomatic mission goes awry, Mira is taken hostage by rebel fighters. She is devastated to learn that her captor is none other but her fallen warrior, Kellan Archer, the man Mira still loves.

Eight years ago, Kellan saw his destiny in the eyes of his lover. He knows he is destined for a death that will break Mira's heart. So when he is presumed lost in an explosion he allows everyone to mourn his death. That betrayal is his way of protecting Mira from the pain of his fate. Although, he is now the leader of a ragtag band of rebels, Kellan was never far away from Mira. And now, a botched mission brings him face to face with the woman he betrayed. Despite the danger, Kellan may not be able to let the woman he loves go this time. But it may be too late for the star crossed lovers when Kellan is betrayed by one of his own men. An innocent man is killed... sealing the fate that Kellan glimpsed all those years ago.

As a devoted fan of the Midnight Breed, I had my doubts about jumping the series twenty years into the future. I wasn't so sure the author could pull it off...but do it she did. Like the master storyteller that she is, Lara Adrian, has given this series a new life. Not only are all of our old favorites characters still here, front and center, but she's given her readers a whole new cast of characters that I'm just dying to get to know. This storyline takes many twists and turns that will keep the reader on the edge of their seat. The mysterious origin of the breedmates, a lingering question throughout the series, is revealed. Old friendships and loyalties are tested and trust that has been betrayed will be earned once again in this epic story. Then there was the climactic ending that marks the beginning of a new battle between the Breed and a powerful new foe.

Was that enough to tease your appetite for this amazing story that breathes new life into an already awesome series? Edge of Dawn is a spine tingling thrill ride for both old and new fans alike. Seriously...there is NO chance of being disappointed with this epic story of a lost love that refused to die. Read it for yourself and find out just what this well-deserved praise is about.

Edge of Dawn is one of the few stories that deserve more than a five star rating.


Book Blurb for Edge of Dawn

In this pulse-pounding and thrillingly sensual novel, New York Times bestselling author Lara Adrian returns to the mesmerizing world of the Midnight Breed, following new characters 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.
