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.
All you die hard Midnight Breed fans can relax. LA did a great job jumping the series into a new world. It did take me a little bit of time to adjust. We are, after all, jumping 20 years ahead. And the next generation of Breed are all grown up with lives and loves of their own. Once you get adjusted to this new era, we fall right back into the Midnight Breed we all know and love. LA has not left us without our Alpha heroes and our equally strong heroins. And all of our favorite originals are still around to make appearances in the series. Mira was always one of my favorites before, and now she has really become the character to love. I have to admit, at first I couldn't remember who Kellen was, but LA fills in all the gaps so we flow through the story without any major hiccups. This was an incredible "jump" into a new era for the Midnight Breed and will keep this series growing with new characters and a whole new enemy to fight. I am excited all over again like I was when reading the first few books in the series, really looking forward to the next one!
