“Midnight’s Kiss by Thea Harrison is an anticipated book in the Elder Races series as fans finally get a book about the hated King of Night Kind world.” ~ Under the Covers

Midnight’s Kiss by Thea Harrison is an anticipated book in the Elder Races series as fans finally get a book about the hated King of Night Kind world.

Mellisandre, a princess of the Light Fae, was taken out of her own home, kidnapped to be used as bait to bring Julian to his knees.

Honestly, I’m a bit surprised at how Julian’s character turned out to be. I was expecting a mean hearted, selfless ass, who care nothing but himself and his ruling as the Nightkind King. Yes, he was ruthless and fearless when it came to battle, well respected and feared amongst his people but he was also every bit as sweet, and romantic. It was hard not to fall for him.

Melly, on the other hand, was exactly as I expected. What you see is what you get with this girl which makes her perfect for Julian. There was even a time when I thought she was pretty kick ass herself.

I have no complaints when it comes to the world of the Night Kind demesne. It was so much fun to see the convoluted politics and the backstabbing council members along with the characters from previous installments. My only gripe is the excitement didn’t come until in a later part of the book. There were also some scenes that were a bit awkward or slow for my liking.

Overall, Midnight’s Kiss was filled with good adventure, a bit of mystery and a whole lot of sweet. Elder Races fans will not be disappointed.

Favorite Quote:

”We could cut loose, you know. Every man for himself. I look after my orgasm, you look after yours. Right here, right now. Quick and dirty.”

About Thea Harrison

I write paranormal romance, urban fantasy, and other stuff. I taught myself to read when I was four. That was around the time I tried to ride my tricycle to work. I wasn't sure where work was, but I knew it had to be interesting if people went there every day. Now I combine my love of books with work, and I don't have to ride my tricycle to get there. My Elder Races series began May, 2011. You can also find me on Twitter and Facebook!

I am young at heart and a die hard romantic living in California.I am happily married to a man who understands my love for reading, blogging and my book boyfriends. I have two beautiful girls who are also avid readers but forbidden to any of my books.I like running, CrossFit and eat healthy but not necessarily good at it.My motto is “I have the right to choose my calories” and often, my choice of poison is a bag of Flammin’ Hot Cheetos.

I coblog and review here at Under the Covers and occasionally review for Hot Listens.I love to read PNR, UF, Contemporary, New Adult, and Romantic Suspense. Occasionally, I will venture to Erotica, BDSM reads and rarely Historical Romance. There are some sub-genres that I don’t always enjoy, but I’m open to stepping out of my comfort zone.For the most part, as long as there’s a hint of romance, I’m pretty much in.

I need to get back into reading PNR. This sounds like a great series, and I’d love to try this on audio. Lovely review, Ang!

Thanks for the review. I’m a book behind on this series. I am very curious though as to how she will get the readers to fall for Julian.
