Random House Publishing Group | November 27, 2012 | Mass Market Paperbound

Darker After Midnight (with Bonus Novella A Taste Of Midnight): A Midnight Breed Novel is rated 4 out of 5 by 1.
The climactic novel in the bestselling Midnight Breed series, of which BookPage raves: “If you like romance combined with heart-stopping paranormal suspense, you’re going to love this book.”
 
In the dark of night, a blood war escalates within the hidden world of the Breed. After maintaining a fragile peace with the humans who walk beside them unaware, a single act of retaliation has put the 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, before his push for domination explodes into catastrophe.
 
At the center of the Order’s quest is Sterling Chase, whose biggest battle is the one he wages against his own savage nature. But when his eyes meet those of Tavia Fairchild, Chase finds himself drawn to the woman—and convinced she is something much more than she seems. And while everything logical warns Tavia against getting close to Chase, she cannot deny that he stirs something ravenous within her. As the Order’s enemy mobilizes for the battle of the ages, Chase and Tavia are thrust into the heart of the violence. With time running out, they must find a way to defeat Dragos once and for all—or die trying.

Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This one had it all What a great installment in the series! This book had it all: great interaction between members of the Breed we already know and enjoy, the war that comes to a head, and a steamy romance for Chase. This for me was the best book in this series by far. I'm hoping Adrian has hit her stride now, and the upcoming books will be on par with this one. As I am behind in the series I'm glad that book 10 was not the end (as it well could have been), and that there is a book 11 to dive right into.

chapter one   “The charges are set, Lucan. Detonators are ready whenever you say the word. On your go, it all ends right here.”   Lucan Thorne stood silent in the dusk-­filled, snow-­covered yard of the Boston estate that had long served as a base of operations for himself and his small cadre of brothers in arms. For more than a hundred years, on countless patrols, they rode out from this very spot to guard the night, maintaining a fragile peace between the unwitting humans who owned the daytime hours and the predators who moved among them secretly, sometimes lethally, in the dark.   Lucan and his warriors of the Order dealt in swift, deadly justice and had never known the taste of defeat.   Tonight it was bitter on his tongue.   “Dragos will pay for this,” he growled around the emerging points of his fangs.   Lucan’s vision burned amber as he stared across the expansive lawn at the pale limestone facade of the Gothic mansion. A chaos of tire tracks scarred the grounds from the police chase that had crashed the compound’s tall iron gates that morning and come to a bullet-­riddled halt right at the Order’s front door. Blood stained the snow where law enforcement gunfire had mowed down three terrorists who’d bombed Boston’s United Nations building then fled the scene with a dozen cops and every news station in the area in close pursuit.   All of it—­from the attack on
