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--until he finds himself drawn to a beautiful young woman who may be something much more than she seems . . .(courtesy of laraadrian.com)
This is the 10th book in the Midnight Breed series.
This book has to have some of Adrian's hottest romp scenes. I've been a fan of this series, and Adrian knows how to do passion as well as action. Adrian takes a different take on the 'vampire' origin, and after the first book, when you are introduced to it, she really makes it work. It's there, it's the 'truth' and he stories have just flowed. (i'm sure i've said that before) Darker After Midnight, takes the plot that the Order has been working so hard to defeat and gives us some wicked twists. Man Dragos was really out there!
Chase and Tavia are amazing. Tavia in herself is unexpected and pushes this book in the right direction. Adrian wraps you up in Chase's insanity and it work. There is never a loss of action in these books, they are definitely one to grip you, as you turn each page hoping for a chance to run to the restroom, there's more and you can't stop. As you've been with each of these brothers for a few years now, you can't let them go. My heart ached for a few of them, and to find the perks in the ending; leaves you ready for the next book and with a warm settled feeling.
I'm extremely impressed (not just by the sex scenes LOL) but with how Adrian takes the book and brings a closure to the plot while sprinkling in the opening for her next books. This is not the last in the series, Adrian has a few more tricks up her sleeve. Everyone of Adrian's books in this series has been strong, there's not been a low point yet!
