PNR Review: Edge of Dawn: A Midnight Breed Novel

I've finished "Edge of Dawn" the 11th book in her Midnight Breed series by Lara Adrian.

Product Description

In this pulse-pounding and thrillingly sensual novel, 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.

My Review:

This book is about Mira and Kellan who we were introduced to when they both were kids.  They became instant friends and grew up together and finally consummated their love the night before Kellan died.

Kellan has been dead for 8 years and it's the anniversary of his death which Mira is still coping with.  She is having trouble getting past his death and that night she goes berserk on a rebel she believes is the cause of his death.  Lucan demotes her and assigns her babysit a peculiar scientist who is going to speak at a conference.  When she goes to pick him up she interrupts his kidnapping by a rebel group and as a result gets kidnapped too.  They are lead by a man named Bowman aka Kellan Archer.

Then we learn what has be going on with Kellan during those years and what he has been doing recently.  My heart was breaking for him and Mira because every time they try to be together something tears them apart again.  Her sight has always been a curse especially for them.

You can feel how much they love each other since they are each others first and only love.

It was a fun delight to see all the sons and even daughter of the original members all grown up and fighting alongside each other.

I really need to read more of this series. I read the first book probably twoish years ago and I own more of the series just never jumped into it. Now the series is so long I have no clue how I would ever catch up.

Thanks for the great review!
