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.
Reviews It’s been twenty years since First Dawn and the peace between the Breed and the human race is fragile to say the least. Mira was raised among the ruling body of the Breed nation and is now a Warrior of the Order, having proven herself time and again as worthy of the title. Since the apparent death of Kellan Archer, her childhood friend and lover, in an attack by rebels, she has been even more determined to eradicate the rebel threat to peace. Unfortunately she does not always think first and with her latest loss of control, the chain of events set in progress bring Mira face to face with the one person she hoped to see again, in circumstances that leave her feeling betrayed to the very core. Wow! This book drags you back into the world of the Breed as if you have never been away. Twenty years on and the transition is seamless although the world is a very different place. The focus of Edge of Dawn is on the younger generation we saw as children and babies in the previous Midnight Breed books. We still get to see the Warriors and mates that we know and love, particularly Lucan who remains leader of the Order, although most of them are very much in the background. I loved Mira as a child and I love her as an adult, she is still stubborn and fearless with a reckless streak a mile wide. It is no surprise she grew up to become the first female Warrior leading her own team. Kellan was a bit of a wuss as a child but grew up to become an alpha male worthy of any novel but not as obnoxious as some can be, and I am glad these two were paired in adulthood. It did take some getting used to having individuals I had
previously thought of as children falling in love and having sex – hot sex too but we are left in no doubt that these are no longer kids! Nathan is another Warrior we met as a child and in this book we get an indication of who his life mate will be (I think!). He has a big role in this book as best friend to both Mira and Kellan since childhood and I cannot wait to see him get his story. There were a number of other new faces including ones who were mere bumps or glints in their parents eyes at the end of Darker After Midnight. This gives me hope that the series will continue for many more books! This book was well worth the wait and was so good I could not put it down, finishing it in a day. I cannot wait to read more about this generation and the new story arc that was introduced – the reveal at the end was not what I was expecting at all! There is a succinct history lesson in the first few pages so if you have not read the previous ten books you could jump in here and be drawn straight in, however I feel I enjoyed it much more because I had an understanding of the other books. If you have read and enjoyed the rest of the series you will love this, and even if you have not read the previous ones, give this a try, I guarantee you will then want to go back to the beginning. Well, it is one way to fill the time waiting for the next one! In summary all I can say is wow, the best one yet!
I’ve been an avid fan of author Lara Adrian for many years and the next installment of her Midnight Breeds is no exception. Edge of Dawn tells the story of Mira and Kellan set twenty years forward from where we left our favorite Midnight Breeds last time. To be honest, to begin with I was wary of such a jump in time but within the first few pages I was reassured. In the twenty plus years that has passed a lot has happened to the Midnight Breed family. They have lost warriors and the world found out they existed. Lucan is trying to delegate between his species and that of the human one. Mira has grown into a strong and straight forward team leader, cherished as all breed mates are but allowed the freedom to fight against the evil that surrounds life as they know it. Mira fights with every breath in her to get every last person associated with the “rebel” influence in today’s society. To her, they are the worst enemy of all as they took her something valuable, someone that can never be replaced in the form of her best friend, Kellan. During a routine body guard detail Mira’s life is completely turned upside down when she faces a blast from the past. Through passion, betrayal, trust and family Mira has to come to the realization of what she wants in her life. Don’t miss out on this great story. I’m not going to spoil the book with any more details. Grab the book today and sit down for a full on session because once you pick up the book you won’t be able to put it down until the end.
