Summary:
In the dark of night, a blood war escalates within the hidden world of the Breed. After existing in secret for many long centuries, maintaining a fragile peace with the humans who walk beside them unaware, a single act of retaliation has put the entire 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 at the center of the conflict, before his push for domination can explode into catastrophe.

At the center of the Order’s quest is Sterling Chase, once a morally rigid enforcer of Breed law, now a warrior fallen from grace, whose biggest battle is the one he wages against his own savage nature. With addiction beckoning him toward eternal darkness, Chase’s path to redemption has never seemed more out of reach. But when his eyes meet those of Tavia Fairchild, a beautiful witness who identifies him at the scene of a mission gone terribly wrong, Chase finds himself drawn to the woman—and convinced she is something much more than she seems.

Pulled into a vortex of intrigue and danger she can neither resist nor understand, Tavia is uncertain whom to trust. And while everything sane and logical warns her against getting close to Chase, she cannot deny that the handsome, deeply haunted male stirs something primal and ravenous within her. But even as she surrenders to her cravings, nothing can prepare her for the shattering truth of who—and what—she truly is.

As the Order’s enemy mobilizes for the battle of the ages, Dragos and his Minions unleashing a hell on Earth like nothing ever seen before, Chase and Tavia are thrust into the heart of the violence. With time running out and the streets running red with the blood of innocent lives, both Breed and human, together Chase and Tavia must find a way to defeat Dragos once and for all—or die trying.

Alyn’s Review:
Nothing beats an enticing story about Breed hotties fighting corruption around the world. Lara Adrian’s latest installment of the Midnight Breeds series doesn’t disappoint. The story begins where the previous book left off after Dragos commits his most devious scheme yet, forcing Sterling Chase to allow humans to take him into custody while allowing the rest of the Order a chance of escape. When our Harvard hottie is forced into a police line up he is identified by the mysterious Tavia Fairchild. In true Breed fashion, Harvard realizes there is more than meets the eye with this young beauty. She says she is sick but to Harvard she is something “other” and he just can’t seem to figure it out. As the truth slowly reveals itself, Tavia’s world falls apart around her and Sterling Chase is forced to face his Bloodlust in order to protect her and find his way back to the Order. Secrets are discovered and ancestry is now a question with which the breedmates have found a curiosity for. Will Tavia be the enemy within, or the asset the Order needs to finally thwart their nefarious nemesis?

I would give this book a solid four stars. I truly wish the author would have given a little bit more insight into what happens between Lucan and Gabrielle. Yes this is Harvard’s book but it felt slightly like being teased with a scene to come, only to be given a resolution with nothing in between which left me slightly frustrated. The story overall was gripping and I found myself cheering on the Breeds and especially Harvard. Lara conveys his struggle with Bloodlust in such a way that you can’t help but hurt for him. I couldn’t put it down and I can’t wait to see where the next story will lead.
