Carys Chase is accustomed to making her own rules and letting her heart lead the way–no matter what anyone else has to say about it. A rare Breed female and a daywalker as well, headstrong, beautiful Carys is one of the most powerful of her kind. She lives passionately and loves without limits, especially when it comes to the lethal cage-fighting Breed warrior called Rune.
Unbeatable in the ring, Rune exists in a brutal world of blood and bone and death. He’s made his share of enemies both in and out of the arena, and his secrets run as deep and turbulent as his past. A dangerous loner who has survived by his fists and fangs, Rune has never allowed anyone to get too close to him…until Carys. But when the bodies buried in his past rise up to threaten his present, Rune must choose between betraying Carys’s trust or putting her in the crosshairs of a battle neither of them can hope to win on their own.
Oh, how much I missed the Midnight Breed series..I couldn’t tell you what a pleasure it was to be back in this world.
It’s been a while since I last read a book from this series, and I have to admit, I might’ve neglected to read them-only a little, I swear!- but to pick it up and start where I left off was just the kind of reading break I needed. It’s always nice to discover new authors, delve into new worlds and experience new things, but there is nothing like falling into that comfortable bubble with just you and one of your favorite authors.
Those who’re familiar with this series will need no introductions simply because I’m sure they’ve read this already, but those who don’t know, please pick it up if you like vampiric paranormal romance. I know they’ve been told about in a million different ways these blood sucking creatures, but Lara Adrian’s interpretation is definitely one of my favorites of the genre. She takes the term vampire and puts a new spin to it, adding all kinds of plotlines and history, and then mixes them up with yet another myth. She spins a tale that’s quite enjoyable and sexy. The best part though, and this is lacking in so many examples of the same genre, is the heroines. They’re not just ornaments for the reading pleasure of sexy times, but they’re an integral part of the story. They have their own storylines, their own strength and weaknesses. Simply put, they have their own voices in these books. I know the series is called the MIDNIGHT BREED, and the name Breed is the one given to the males of the species, but these are as much the heroines’ stories as the heroes. Not one character is tossed aside, and this is what I love about the MIDNIGHT BREED.
