  • Vampire Romance
  • Band of Warriors
  • Enemies to Lovers

The son of the original couple and leader of The Order, Darion. And the Queen of the Atlantean’s, Selene. Darion has grown up around a band of warrior Breeds and he’s now a true leader. One that has to step in for his father and lead the battle against the Order’s three enemies. The Opus Nostrum, an Ancient ancestor and the Atlantean Queen. The Breed and the Atlanteans find themselves at odds and he takes it upon himself to go meet with her personally at her secret lair.


I certainly don’t want to give more than that away. This book packs so much! It’s fast paced and action packed in all the best ways. Let’s start off with the plot. Battles, enemies and all that. This book will keep you on the edge of your seat waiting to see what happens next. And give you all the closure you may need of any open ended threads.

The Order and the whole crew? Yep, all here. It was so nice to get to visit a bit with everyone. Also seeing them in such different ways and roles than in their own books. If Ms. Adrian would’ve made those parts even longer, I would’ve been happy. But she still managed to include so many great scenes to let us know how everyone is doing and give them a good send off.

Reading this out of order? Don’t. No really, don’t. This shouldn’t be a series read out of order. The buildup in this world is always in the background of every book. Even in novellas. And when you don’t have that context I think it can be a bit more difficult to appreciate or know what’s going on.

And we finally get to the romance. OMG I was not expecting to love these two as much as I did. Enemies to lovers, yes. She’s a badass Queen that will do anything to protect her people, but with a vulnerable side. He’s a tough as nails warrior willing to sacrifice everything for his own as well. These two alphas together brought some amazing and combustible chemistry. Selene also gave me Devina vibes (from the Fallen Angels/BDB) but without the unnecessary evil torture.

in conclusion

Fans of the Midnight Breed, this is a must read! It was bittersweet to see one of my most beloved vampire romance series come to an end, but Lara Adrian has made it all come full circle. King of Midnight was both a great series ending AND an amazing romance. And I can still say, for those of you that haven’t started this series, the Midnight Breed series is paranormal romance at its best. If you’re a fan of the genre it should be on your must read series list.
