Darker After Midnight
4 Stars

After placing the entire Breed race at risk of discovery, Dragos is on the offensive and the warriors are playing catch up. At the heart of the conflict are Sterling Chase, a warrior struggling against his bloodlust, and Tavia Fairchild, a young woman who is not what she seems. Together Chase and Tavia will have to accept their true natures if they are to defeat Dragos before he unleashes hell on earth.

A satisfying conclusion to the existing story lines.

Chase and Tavia's romance is hot and heavy but definitely not the best in the series. Chase has always been an ambiguous character for me, and while his HEA is well deserved and quite rewarding, his redemption is nonetheless not as convincing as it could have been. He seems to overcome all obstacles far too quickly and conveniently. Tavia's character is extremely interesting but I don't want to give too much away, so suffice it to say that she is strong, independent and kick-ass (I particularly enjoyed the way in which she contributes to Dragos's downfall).

The scenes involving the entire Breed warrior "family" are a definite highlight. It is very gratifying to see everyone together even if it is a little saccharin sweet. Some of the newer characters such as Lazaro, Kellan, Nathan and Mira are compelling and I am eager to see where Adrian takes them.

While the plot includes several cliched and predictable moments, the development of Dragos's reign of terror and his ultimate demise is action packed and thrilling with some surprising twists. The ending feels a little rushed but the hints at future stories are intriguing and Adrian establishes a compelling new mythology that will make a good foundation on which to build the next installments.

In sum, a worthwhile read for those who are lovers of the Breed. ( )

Paranormal Romance. Midnight Breed 10. Chase gives himself up to the police so the rest of the Breed warriors can escape. Tavia works for the senator that is ensorcelled by Dragos. OK-

Another great installment in this series. I've been waiting to read Chase's story since he was first introduced. He was such an intriguing character to me, and I'm glad that his story was told well.

We saw a lot more action in this book than we've seen in past ones, which was very welcome. The story finally moved forward -- and holy hell, did it.

I'm a little confused if this is the last book or not. I'm not sure where else she would go with it, but I thought that this plot point wrapped up fairly quickly in the book and could have been stretched out a bit more. It was a lot of build up for a very fast and perfect ending (complete with babies! From freaking EVERYONE! I found it odd (and convenient) that so many of the couples wanted children after less than a year together, especially when their time is measured in such huge increments.). ( )

This is the latest of the series and I believe that it is the best. We have spent a long time getting to know the backstory and the lead-in to Chase's slide down. Lucan we see approaching bloodlust and Tegan we hear how he did fall in the past. But here we see the tipping point that Chase faces.

Adrian has done and excellent job throughout the series in foreshadowing and plot development. She is an excellent writer and this novel is no exception. ( )

Book description
In the dark of night, a blood war escalates within the hidden world of the Breed. After existing in secret for many long centuries, maintaining a fragile peace with the humans who walk beside them unaware, a single act of retaliation has put the entire vampire nation at risk of discovery. It falls to the Order—a cadre of Breed warriors pledged to protect their own and humankind alike—to stop Dragos, the power-mad vampire at the center of the conflict, before his push for domination can explode into catastrophe.

At the center of the Order’s quest is Sterling Chase, once a morally rigid enforcer of Breed law, now a warrior fallen from grace, whose biggest battle is the one he wages against his own savage nature. With addiction beckoning him toward eternal darkness, Chase’s path to redemption has never seemed more out of reach. But when his eyes meet those of Tavia Fairchild, a beautiful witness who identifies him at the scene of a mission gone terribly wrong, Chase finds himself drawn to the woman—and convinced she is something much more than she seems.

Pulled into a vortex of intrigue and danger she can neither resist nor understand, Tavia is uncertain whom to trust. And while everything sane and logical warns her against getting close to Chase, she cannot deny that the handsome, deeply haunted male stirs something primal and ravenous within her. But even as she surrenders to her cravings, nothing can prepare her for the shattering truth of who—and what—she truly is.

As the Order’s enemy mobilizes for the battle of the ages, Dragos and his Minions unleashing a hell on Earth like nothing ever seen before, Chase and Tavia are thrust into the heart of the violence. With time running out and the streets running red with the blood of innocent lives, both Breed and human, together Chase and Tavia must find a way to defeat Dragos once and for all—or die trying.
