Book Info

Released: January 24, 2012
Series: Midnight Breed #10
Pages: 384

It feels like I’ve been waiting to read Chase’s story since forever, and well, I have. I fell in love with his character in Tegan’s book and have seen him go from a highly respected member breed society to an Order warrior, to well… it hurts to think where he’s gone lately.But I think this was always the frame of mind he was supposed to be in, not the too far gone, but the bit reckless and out of control.  He was always a rebel at heart and just needed that side of himself to come out.

This book picks up where Deeper Than Midnight left off. Chase is the prime suspect the human police have on a murder attempt on a politician as well as some terrorist attacks around town. The Order has been forced to relocate and Chase, he has one mission in his mind before he “finishes” himself.   He wants to destroy Dragos.

Caught in the crossfire here is Tavia Fairchild.  First of all, let me just say she might be one of my favorite heroines of this series.  And you’re in for a surprise with her character!  A Big One!  She is truly the perfect match for Chase and through his attraction to her she’s able to bring him down from the ledge just enough for him to see a future.
As a couple, they were great together.  The romance and the heat were excellent.  But that’s not all this book has to offer.  Dragos is still present and causing havoc.  There were even times in this book when I thought “How can everything be going his way?”.  But in the end, the story was full of action, it grabs you from the first page and doesn’t stop until the end.  What a ride!!!
And I can’t leave aside the little ones.  I love Mira and Nathan and Kellan and I’d love to see their characters developed more.  Maybe even get books?  Also there are new developments with most of the couples, which was very nice to see.

If you are a fan of this series, you have to read this book NOW!  If you haven’t started it yet, what are you waiting for?  A bit dark, and not always roses, this series and characters are captivating!!  Great job Ms. Adrian!!  I can’t wait for more!

Thanks for the review. I was a bit dissapointed with the last book. My copy is on the way. Can’t wait to read it.


I really need to catch up on this series. I read the first book a long time ago and even though books 2 and 3 are on my shelf I have yet to read them.

I’m glad that this series has remained to be a good one, sometimes when series are this long they tend to flop at a certain point.

Thanks for the great review.


I’m looking forward to reading this one!!!

Thanks! I liked this one a lot better than the last few. I wasn’t too impressed with the last book either.

Alexa, you have to keep reading. This series is actually pretty good about keeping up good books!
