Lucan Thorne is a Breed vampire warrior and it's his duty to protect and keep his kind in line. The Rogues are getting more out of control though and their violence is beginning to leave too obvious an impact on not only his world, but that of the humans as well. When he spies an alluring woman across a crowded club, and witnesses her involvement in a grisly murder, he will have to find her and silence anything she knows. It may be too late for her though and Lucan's attraction is too strong to ignore. Too, when he discovers her true destiny, he has no choice but to bring her fully into his world...and into the war waiting there.
There is definitely a unique style to this first in Lara Adrian's vampire Midnight Breed series. It's an urban setting, which we're familiar with by now, but it's got its own atmosphere of dark foreboding twists and turns and she crafts it well through her particular use of language. World-building-wise, it's not doing too bad a job. Where it began to unravel were the main character's interactions, and it usually stemmed from Lucan's end. Tortured, angry heroes are almost always intriguing. It's thrilling to experience the redemption of their character and to see that wicked unraveling to the heroine's irresistible wiles.Read more ›
Besides that however, the story is good, engaging even. The characters themselves, apart from what I mentionned above can be taken seriously, something I had a hard time doing with Ward's (sorry for all the comparision, but there it is). The battle engaged is a worthy one, however I am kind of worried that "war" they are fighting will just turn out in "kill the big mean villain and everything will be peachy again". Because at the end, I really felt like this was a story about one guy with a grudge instead of a real war (which is unfortunate because the book starts with this idea).
On the other end, I loved the interactions between the 2 protagonists. And I loved how Lucan tries to control Gabrielle from time to time, it is daring and something I haven't read yet. I'll definitely check the second one, I read from the reviews it was way better. So I guess an ok start for a serie that as potential.

I didn't love it; I didn't hate it. I can't pinpoint what made me so ambivalent, but I reached the end of the novel not caring what happens to the main characters next. Read morePublished on Jan. 27 2013 by Jennimac
I have read all of the books currently out, and have enjoyed all of them. They are easy reads. They are very similar to JR Ward's books so if you enjoy her books you will... Read morePublished on April 24 2009 by Deidre Hunter
