Veil of Midnight
Midnight Breed #5

This is book 5 of the Midnight Breed Series and like the previous books, it did not disappoint! This book is about Nikolai, the blond haired tough vampire from Russia.  The book picks up right where the last book left off.  For some reason, I thought that this book was a little darker.  I though it was very different from the first Midnight Breed book as it had more action and the story is developing more.  I’m curious as to what Lara Adrian has in mind with the series.       

The Order has discovered that someone is hunting down and killing the known Gen Ones remaining in the Breed population.  Nikolai is sent to Montreal to speak with Sergei Yakut and warn him about the killings of the Gen Ones and see if he would join the Order and bring down Dragos. While there, Nikolai discovers that Yakut is not what he appears to be.   He also discovers that Yakut is holding two Breed Mates prisoners and is keeping them because of their special powers.  Although one of them, Renata is Yakut’s personal body guard, he manages to keep her on his side by threatening her with killing the other Breed Mate, a child with a powerful gift, who Renata has grown to love and become very protective of.   In this book, the author introduces “Hunter.”  A new generation Gen One with a mind of his own and who has other plans for Dragos.  I cant wait to find out what happens next and whether Hunter gets his own book.  ASHES OF MIDNIGHT is the next book and I'm sure I will not be disappointed.

Summary: Bound by blood, addicted to danger, they'll enter the darkest—and most erotic—place of all.

A warrior trained in bullets and blades, Renata cannot be bested by any man—vampire or mortal. But her most powerful weapon is her extraordinary psychic ability—a gift both rare and deadly. Now a stranger threatens her hard-won independence—a golden-haired vampire who lures her into a realm of darkness…and pleasure beyond imagining. 

A combat-loving adrenaline junkie, Nikolai dispenses his own justice to enemies of the Breed—and his latest quarry is a ruthless assassin. One woman stands in his way: the seductive, cool-as-ice bodyguard, Renata. But Renata’s powers are put to the test when a loved one, a child, is threatened and she’s forced to turn to Niko for help. As the two join forces, as desire fans the flames of a deeper hunger, Renata’s life is under siege by a man who offers the exquisite pleasure of a blood bond—and a passion that could save or doom them both forever.…
