spoiler Anyway, besides the huge events that are taking place, this is finally Harvard s book My favourite breed warrior I was really looking forward for his book Harvard was a tortured, self destructive hero since the first book in which we met him Kiss of Crimson He was the second best in his family behind his brother s long shadow, he always have had an unsatisfied lust for his sister

GREAT COUPLE, GREAT CHEMISTRY, GREAT LOVE SCENES 5 stars Paranormal Vampire RomanceWow I loved it I ve been a big fan of this series from the beginning, and with its tenth installment, Lara Adrian definitely delivered the goods Chase and Tavia are an awesome H h pairing, and with some shocking surprises, an epic showdown, a satisfying ending, and a moving epilogue, it s one of the best books of the series There s an 11th book mentioned TBD on the author s website, so I m hoping that means we haven t seen the last of the Breed 5 stars Posted at Yummy Men Kick Ass Chicks Before I begin this review, I have one important thing to say about this book Darker After Midnight is the tenth installment in Lara Adrian s Midnight Breed series and HOLY SH T THIS BOOK IS OMG JUST WOW Essentially,

Yes, I felt bad for him and hi Posted at Yummy Men Kick Ass Chicks Before I begin this review, I have one important thing to say about this book Darker After Midnight is the tenth installment in Lara Adrian s Midnight Breed series and HOLY SH T THIS BOOK IS OMG JUST WOW Essentially, this book is about Chase and Tavia and how they find their HEA But really, it s so muchSo much happens it s insane I have to admit that when I first met Chase in book three, I didn t feel much for him Yes, I felt bad for him and his situation But as a character, he was just there Then he joined the Order and he started getting interesting Then he started getting on my nerves Never to the point where I wanted to smack him around, but I may have wanted to shake him a little to see what was going on in that head of his Then the end of book nine happened and I thought he was the bravest and stupidest vampire on the planet I found what he did to be such an honorable thing to do It s too bad he was walking into certain death But as I m getting ready to wave goodbye to Chase forever, I remembered that book ten was to be Chase s book and he most certainly wasn t headed for certain death because otherwise that would make book ten the shortest book ever So I changed it in my head We were not witnessing Chase s demise at the end of book nine we were witnessing his greatness He is still dealing with his issues in Darker After Midnight but his humanity, if you will, is a strong focus too I liked him quite a bit in this book and had no feelings of wanting to hurt him g Tavia is a very good match for Chase I really liked her character but what I liked most was what Lara ended up doing to with her Holy whoa I did not see that coming I mean yeah I can t wait to see what loyal readers of this series think of Tavia at the end of the book I found it all very fitting to what has been going on in these past few books.We see quite a bit of the other members of the Order but we mostly see Lucan and Gabrielle I found it was great how we see the aftermath of his struggle with Bloodlust and his struggle with becoming the true leader he was always meant to me If I weren t sitting in the middle of my daughter s dance school when I read the end of this book, I would have stood up and cheered for Lucan in the epilogue.I was a little disappointed after reading the last book that Jenna and her condition weren t mentionedbut I did not feel that way this time around Jenna is very much in the picture and much is explained We also discover a theory about where Breedmates originated Yeah I know Now you know what I mean when I say tons happens in this book I have a huge crush on Gideon I just wanted to throw that out there.Now let s talk about the man we all want to punch in the face and kick in otherpainful regions Dragos I am about done with him He wants vampires to take over the world and humans to be a snack Yeah he s one of those guys In each book, the Order knocks him down a little bit at a time Starting this book, I was about ready for Dragos to be really hurt this time I wanted his operation to be completely disbanded and he himself to die a slow and painful death Or a fast and painful death Or even a fast and painless death I m easy I just wanted it to happen Of course, I won t tell you what happened with Dragos you ll just have to read the book to find out But I am satisfied with where Dragos is headed at the end of this book.Onelittle tidbit about Dragos in Darker After Midnight The big part of his plan is revealed and holy jumpin I was not expecting him to go there And when he went there, it was sad and shocking and another moment in the book that had me lose all words other than whoa.Oh, and before I forget, no this is not a stand alone book You would still enjoy it if you just jumped in and read this one but you wouldn t have the same reaction as I did to the book because you would be missing the character build up and the whole Dragos is a super bastard aspect of the story also builds over a few books.Lara s Midnight Breed series is a solid series I have never rated a book under 4 stars The writing is good, the characters are very well developed and the premise even though it s vampires in hiding is unique I m always impressed when I finish a Midnight Breed, but I have to say Darker After Midnight blew me away I could not sit still during the last few chapters I held my breath and rooted for the heroes and thought THIS is how a long running paranormal romance series should make you feel Lara got it just right with this tenth installment I LOVE where the story ended up and I love where it seems to be headed Fans of this series will have to agree with me that Darker After Midnight is the best book yet Full of action, twists and reveals Conclusions and new directions One of the best installments in this series.4.5 stars I was never a huge fan of Chase But I have to say that this book has completely changed my mind about him I think this was probably my favorite book of the entire series I m not giving any spoilers but the ending was just mind blowing I couldn t read it fast enough So much was happening I m so sad this part of the journey is at an end But I am anxious to see how the spin off series will go Hopefully we will get some glimpses of the entire family so we can at least see how they are doin I was

the nonstop action in the third act Ms Adrian didn t pull any punches with book 10, lol.The circumstances that brought Chase and Tavia together made for some excellent push and pull in the beginning, and it really worked for me But when they got together fairly early on their chemistry lost some of its spark However, even though the romance aspect wasn t as strong as it was in 4 stars for the

some of its spark However, even though the romance aspect wasn t as strong as it was in other Midnight Breed books, the overarching plot and resolution to this part of the storythan made up for it And all the new bits that were introduced concerning the Breed itself and its history are quite intriguing.It was also great to catch up with all the previous warriors and their mates I d like to continue with the series as I really enjoy this author s take on warrior vamps, not to mention her writing style, but this is such a wonderful way to wrap things up We ll see The climactic novel in Lara Adrian s New York Times bestselling Midnight Breed series and her hardcover debut Darker After Midnight invites readers to enter a thrillingly sensual world where danger meets desireIn 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 catastropheAt 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 out of reach until he finds himself drawn to a beautiful young woman who may be something much than she seems Used titanium knife sixty three dollars.Value priceless Wait, what When did Lara Adrian

fan of this series now GOOD Again, did I blink and miss something here Wasn t I lukewarm about the earlier books It s as if an author actually learned how to fix their mistakes Most of my complaints about the earlier books are slowly fading as the story world expands to includethan just the couples themselves I m sad that it took this long to get here, but at least it happened, right Chase s actual story could ve been better developed, but it was alright I m not very fond of what Tavia turned out to be, but mainly this is because of how Jenna s story came along soon before hers If Jenna hadn t happened, I might have been okay with the Tavia twist or maybe not I do think it makes the breedmates seem less special , but this is where the author probably should have chosen which alternate being should have existed, especially since the breedmates technically also count as something not just human Too many species makes an already unbelievable scenario turn into something comical As readers, we buy into a fantasy element up to a certain point We allow ourselves to put aside reality for a moment if the author tells us that aliens crash landed on our planet Okay, fine So this ONE thing happenedit s weird, but we re going with it But when the author starts adding in A, B, C, D, etc extra fantasy elements, the original idea becomes cloudy I almost laughed out loud when it was revealed that breedmates view spoiler are possibly part Atlantean There couldn t have been a rival alien explanation like in Falling Skies instead Maybe the Atlanteans are aliens, but I think tapping into that lore was stupid for a book world which is something different already hide spoiler Anyway, sorry for that ramble Outside of the additional lore insertion, I m pleased with the direction of the series, with only a few complaints about the rushed nature of the end of book 10 and how it leads into book 11 I ll expand on thisin my review for book 11 The bridge from books 10 into 11 was a tough transition I m not a fan of the 20 Years Later gap The story went from the shit hitting the fan into a fast forward So we have all of this buildup, only to have it all change in an instant with no real reactions to the change What about explanations of how people were split apart I get that so much of the immediately after could have been tedious to report, but even a short novella would have sufficed Lord knows there are a couple of needless novellas in the series that could have been scrapped in favor of this There was just SO much story in there which could have been told, and I m sad that I missed it The ending was just way too rushed To the Readers BOOM The world has changed Deal with it Move on Or don t Either way, the Midnight Breed won t be the same any Me grumble Fine But only because I feel like the writer is FINALLY deciding to add inworld and character details interactions background like I d been hoping for woo hoo forstory outside of the romance , and I like the upcoming characters, so I m excited to see what happens to them 5 Darker after midnight for sure Stars I loved it A stunning conclusion and also an intriguing new beginning Action

Happily Ever After ReadsBlog Rating 4.5 5Sterling Chase s story has been building up for many books now and to say his journey has been bumpy and full of angst would be the understatement of the year He s seen his brother die, he s loved his brother s wife and watched her mate to another member of the Order He s killed his nephew when he was overtaken by bloodlust brought on by overdosing on drugs and all of this has slowly eaten away at Chase until he too is on the verge of losing it all to bloodlust When we last left off, Chase gave himself up to help save his brothers and their mates in the Order, even though he s been cast out of the Order and is dealing with everything on his own He s taken into custody, but doesn t stay there long and crosses paths with Tavia a female who is anything but the human she believes herself to be There won t be any spoilers about who Tavia is, so the review will be as detailed as possible without giving anything away Dragos, and his evil ways, hits close to home for Tavia and everything that she thought she was and the people she loved most in her life were nothing but lies With Chase s help, she s able to finally learn the truth about who the Breeds are and starts to uncover the details about who she is While Chase s story may have been a long time coming, Dragos rise in power and the final fight between him, his army and the Breeds has been building from the start Dragos pulls no punches and unleashes mass destruction and killers throughout the world, which causes death and destruction at a pace that the Order just can t keep up with I was counting down until the moment when Dragos got what was coming to him, but it comes at a great cost to Tavia and Chase and changes the world the Breeds and humans live in forever Tavia is such a strong female, and she needs to be to be able to match up well with Chase He still has so much self hatred in him and he s constantly fighting against the bloodlust thats right there in front of him Tavia becomes his lifeline, the person that he can hold on to and someone who helps him through the worst of times I love a hero who s been through so much pain and heartache and watch him slowly come out of it and start living again, and Tavia gives him all the reasons in the world to start to turn his life around Before we get to the sweet and tender moments between them, there is crazy hot attraction that s not denied and they become linked in ways that Tavia doesn t really understand at first Chase sure does, but since he refuses to feed from her, afraid that he won t be able to stop, their blood bond is one sided for much of the book Tavia is able to feel what Chase is going through as he fights his hunger and it s that tie between them that starts to ground him and help him move forward.All the past characters, heroes, heroines and children, get page time as everyone gears up for the fight with Dragos There are developments with the history of the Breedmates and there are still stories to be told with the younger set, Mira, Kellan and now Nathan Lucan steps fully into his role as leader, leading not only his men, but taking the Breeds in a new direction at the end of the story The final fight takes place over quite a few chapters at the end and after all is said and done, my one little issue is that Chase and Tavia s story ended a bit abruptly We get a great epilogue at the end that takes us 1 year into the future, but it almost felt like a chapter was missing between where the story ends now and the epilogue starts I needed just a little bitclosure for Chase and Tavia DARKER AFTER MIDNIGHT ends on a positive note, but there are still so many loose ends that will take us easily into the next portion of this series and really, a new world, with the direction that things go at the end of this story I m hoping that our old friends will still show up and we can stay caught up with their lives while being introduced to new characters that are out there in the Breed world that we need to get to know
