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.

When Rio discovers a small birthmark on Dylan’s body, that identifies her as a breed mate to his kind, he cannot let her go and take her to safety in the Breed compound.

Dylan has a hard time believing all the things Rio tells her about her birthmark and the Breed world. But when some of the oldest of the Breed begin disappearing and get murdered and Dylan finally figures out what her special gift is about, she realize she cannot leave Rio and the brothers. The only thing to do is to fight sight by sight and face evil together.

Midnight Rising is the fourth novel in the Midnight Breed series and really a treasure. Lara Adrian has really created a dark but powerful world that will keep your attention all the way through the book. Just like the previous books this one was great and I cannot wait for the next one.

The main characters Rio and Dylan are both stubborn and determined, but that make them the perfect couple.
Rio has been betrayed and was injured by the hands of his former breed mate, something he cannot forget or let go. For the past years he is fighting the demons within him, but cannot do that any longer. So when he was ordered to blow up the cave where the hidden tomb was located, the plan was to do that with him in it. That all change when some curious journalist is snapping pictures of the tomb. Rio has no other choice to find her and destroy all the evidence. But fate has another surprise for him, when he finds out who she is and most important what she is.
Dylan Alexander is a journalist and when she discovers a hidden tomb during her vacation, she cannot ignore her excitement to tell the story. So she convince her boss to extend her vacation so she can write and take pictures. But Dylan doesn’t know there is another secret living in the cave, a lethal vampire who will do anything to prevent her publishing the story and pictures. Will she be able to handle the true about who she really is?

All the secondary characters in this novel are great. Lucan and Gabrielle, Dante and Tess, Gideon and Savannah, Tegan and Elise and of course the other warriors Niko, Chase and some new younger warriors.

I said it before; 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.
I cannot wait for the next novel to come out and I believe it will be Niko’s story.
