Lara Adrian - Midnight Awakening

Thousands years ago an alien race called the Breed vampires settle themselves on earth among the human race. Nobody knows they exist but now the Breed are in the middle of a civil war with the Rogues, whom are vampires who have given over their minds and bodies to the bloodlust. An army full of Rogues wants to dominate the world but find the Breed warriors standing in their way ready to destroy them.

After losing her only son to the Rogue vampires and the crimson drug that causes bloodlust and eventually death, Elise Chase is barely holding on. Now Elise has nothing to lose, so she decides to uses her unique gift of psychic powers and tracks as many Rogues and finally kill them. But the more she uses her power, the weaker she grows and Elise knows that without a blood bond and help of one of the Breed warriors, she will eventually die.

Tegan is a Gen One warrior, the deadliest of them all. He lost his Breed mate five centuries ago to the Rogues and their bloodlust. He has been at war with the Rogues ever since, killing as many as he can. Then one evening he sees Elise Chase battling with a couple of Rogues in an alley and helps her. He remember her as the Darkhaven female he escorted home after her son’s death and is surprised by the way she is handling his death.

Now the two of them are working together to battle the Rogues and their Minions, finding a way to destroy Marek, the leader of the Rogues and an old friend of Tegan. But in the meantime someone is hunter them, will they be strong enough to destroy the enemy and find love all over again?

Midnight Awakening is the third novel in the Midnight Breed series and again it is a fabulous one. Lara Adrian has really created a dark but powerful world that will keep your attention all the way through the book. From the first novel Kiss of Midnight, Tegan was the warrior who caught my eye and made my heart tremble every time he appeared and his story was very satisfying. It really blew me off my feet.

The main characters Tegan and Elise are fabulous for each together. Tegan is the deadliest of all Breed warriors and lost his first breed mate five centuries ago. He never wants to feel love again and only lives to fight as many Rogues and their Minions as he can. But then he meets Elise for the first time and cannot forget about her. Now months later their path crosses again and he cannot let her fight her battle alone.
Elise Chase lost everything she cherish, her husband and now her only son. So she feels she has nothing to loose and is determined to let the Rogues pay for what they done to her son. Hunting the minions during daytime and kill them without remorse, she grows weaker by the day because she has to use her special gift to find them. And then one night she runs into a group of Rogues and fight for her life, but she couldn’t imagine the help of the deadliest Breed warrior Tegan.

The secondary characters in this novel are great. Lucan Thorne, the leader of the Breed and his wife Gabrielle are really great together. Then the other warriors Niko, Rio, Chase, Gideon and his wife Savannah, Dante and his wife Tess, well you can see they all are very close at the compound.

I believe the Midnight Breed series is definitely one of my favourite vampire series I’ve ever read. I don’t have to say this story contains all the stuff you need for a good vampire story, a huge and strong bond between the hero and his heroine, the sworn enemy.
The next novel will be Midnight Rising and I’m really looking forward to reading that one, because it will be Rio’s story. And man, what he went through in the previous novel, you believe he never finds love again.

Lara Adrian is one of my favourite authors and definitely belongs on my bookshelves.
