Lara Adrian - Veil of midnight

Thousand years ago alien race called the Breed vampires settle themselves on Earth among the human race. Nobody knows they exist but now the Breed must fight for their existence, because something is eliminating every Gen One warriors.

Breed warrior Nikolai was sent to warn Gen One warrior Sergei Yakut of the eliminations, but was lured into a trap by one of Sergei’s beautiful bodyguards, a young woman with a special gift. Sergei grants Niko an audience, but he wishes no involvement from the warrior. Niko accepts the hospitality so he can avoid sunlight and maybe even learn more about this mysterious young woman.

Renata has a gift unlike no other; she can bring trained vampire warriors instantly to their knees without using any weapons. But she is also quite skilled with blades and guns. The only downside of her gift is that it leaves her weak afterwards. But now this warrior walks into her life and Renata refuses to admit her attraction to him, because she trusts no man.

When someone in Sergei’s camp turn traitor and kills him, all the evidence turns to Niko and Renate is the one who assists in his arrest, but only to realize later her mistake. In order to save the little child she loves dearly and her own life, Renata needs a plan to free Niko, the only man able to keep them save.

Veil of midnight by Lara Adrian is the fifth novel in the Midnight Breed series and really a treasure. I don’t think I have to say Miss Lara Adrian has created a dark but powerful world that will keep your attentions all the way through the book.

The main characters Niko and Renata are right for each other from the start, I would say a perfect couple. The leader of the Breed warrior Lucan sent Niko to warn Sergei, a Gen One that someone or something is killing all Gen One warriors. But the search is not easy, because Sergei doesn’t want to be found. During his search Niko finds a beautiful young woman, who definitely knows more than she’s showing. Before Niko figures out that something is wrong, he is down on his knees by this woman.
Renata has a rough life growing up, when some vampire took her of the streets she didn’t knew what to expect. But during their games and hunting Sergei discovers Renata’s secret gift and decide she might be useful to him. When Renata meets warrior Niko she knows he might be the answer to all her prayers. He is definitely the one who can help her escape her prison and maybe even love her.

What I like about this couple is that apart they are strong fighters, but when they are together…. well, all hell can break loose. I’m curious to find out more about the ancient and the breeding plan. What about Hunter, what will become of him? I can only hope to see more of him in the following novels. He is definitely a big key in this whole battle. You can see that I cannot wait for the next novel to come out.
