Description
NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER
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.
BONUS: This edition includes an excerpt from Lara Adrian's Crave the Night.

        Starred review from March 1, 2013
        The war between humans and the Breed has been over for almost two decades, but Mira, a squad captain for the OrderBreed warriors dedicated to protecting vampires and humans alikestruggles to keep her anger in check ever since Kellan Archer, a fellow Breed warrior and Mira's one true love, was killed by rebels. Every once in a while her blood boils for revenge, so when she spots rebel-sympathizer Rooster skulking around Boston late one night, she follows him. As a result of their subsequent altercation, she is temporarily relieved of her command and given the task of escorting reclusive human scientist Dr. Jeremy Ackmeyer to the Global Nations Council Peace Summit in Washington, D.C. Upon arriving at Ackmeyer's fortresslike home, Mira discovers someone else has been there first. Taken hostage by the kidnappers, Mira is in for an even greater shock when she discovers the identity of their leader. The eleventh installment in Adrian's strikingly original Midnight Breed series delivers an abundance of nail-biting suspenseful chills, red-hot sexy thrills, an intricately built world, and realistically complicated and conflicted protagonists, whose happily-ever-after ending proves to be all the sweeter after what they endure to get there.(Reprinted with permission of Booklist, copyright 2013, American Library Association.)
