Publisher's Summary

As night falls, Claire Roth flees, driven from her home by a fiery threat that seems to come from hell itself. Then, from out of the flames and ash, a vampire warrior emerges. He is Andreas Reichen, her onetime lover, now a stranger consumed by vengeance. Caught in the cross fire, Claire cannot escape his savage fury - or the hunger that plunges her into his world of eternal darkness and unending pleasure. Nothing will stop Andreas from destroying the vampire responsible for slaughtering his Breed brethren...even if he must use his former lover as a pawn in his deadly mission. Blood-bonded to his treacherous adversary, Claire can lead Andreas to the enemy he seeks, but it is a journey fraught with danger - and deep, unbidden desires. For Claire is the one woman Andreas should not crave and the only one he's ever loved. A dangerous seduction begins - one that blurs the lines between predator and prey, and stokes the flames of a white-hot passion that may consume all in its path.

    I spin my own wool and knit. Listening to audiobooks while I craft is one of my favorite things. I'm hooked.

    Story
    "Hot to Boiling!"

    I've been reading this series from book 1, and suggest others do likewise, as the series definitely needs to be read in order. We are introduced to Andreas, our hero, in previous books, when he was called upon to help "the order". I wasn't sure how he'd work as the hero of a book, as he wasn't actually a member of "the order". I had no idea about his special talent and apparently neither did anyone else.

    In this book, he rekindles things with an old flame, and there are lots of complications. I'm usually not into "second time around" romances, but this book makes it work. The romantic tension is just right, the advancement of the back story to the series is action packed, and the ending is satisfying.

    A great addition to the series.

    "BE VERY CAREFUL BEFORE YOU RILE ONE OF THE BREED!"

    When I was growin up, we had the AM radio with the weekly radio series. Whether it was
    "Sky King", "Straight Arrow", "The Shadow" or "The Inner Sanctum", every week for a time we could loose ourselves in the stories. As I listen to one of the Night Breed stories, I have the same since of enjoyment. That's why I would recommend this audiobook to anyone
    Andreau Rankin never stopped his love of the woman of his dreams, but ran away in an attempt to protect her, from what? This series is a favorite of mine and never fails to deliver fantastic adventure. Hillary Huber brings these stories to life with her superb performance and as always delivers a top shelf job.
    I definately recommend this book and if you've not read them before, start at book one, because this will give you more insight into the utter humanity of each of the characters.

    "These seem to be getting even better!"

    This is book 7 in the midnight breed series....and I liked this one very much! This is the story of Andreas Richen, and the mate he should have had. We last saw Andreas as he blew up his dark haven after finding everyone inside murdered and his human female lover turned into a minion! We pick up the story with him on a revenge mission, he WILL make those responsible pay! But does that extend to his sworn enemies mate... A woman who SHOULD have been his....but she is mated to another, an unbreakable blood bond, the highest law of the Breed... He can't act on his feelings now that he has found her.... Or can he?

    Very fun! Great read! This series is Nothing like black dagger brotherhood so if you are holding back on reading this because you don't want to be ticked off by a rip off, it isn't! Go download now!

    Story
    "A fiery story of love and revenge"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, the entire series are wonderful reads, and this book is in the top half of my enjoyment list.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Ashes of Midnight?

    When Reichen has to decide if he will master his psychic gift...or if it will master him.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Too many to name...or to say anything about without spoiling so much of the book.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    It's a good read, but like all her novels is too long to listen to all at once. It's a good read for extended periods (like travel or gym workouts).


    Any additional comments?

    As always, the narrator does a good job, and doesn't leave out the necessary German accents.

    Any additional comments?

    I've been interested in Andreas Reichen for quite a while and it was nice to have more of his story. I found his and Clare's story to be quite engaging. Watching Andreas struggle with his pyrotechnic powers was very interesting. I've read a few reviews encouraging others to skip this novel, but I think you'd miss a lot of important information for the overreaching arch of the series if you chose to let this one slip buy.

    "Narrator leaves a lot to be desired."
    Would you try another book from Lara Adrian and/or Hillary Huber?

    Lara Adrian, yes. I'm seriously considering skipping the final book in the series. I'm just getting tired of the narrator.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Too many to list.


    How could the performance have been better?

    I think adding a male for the male characters would be good, as well as replacing Ms. Huber with a female who's voice is not as rough.

    "Didn't finish it"

    I've been enjoying this series up until this book. It was just too slow for me and boring. It took me over 3 months to finish it after starting it over numerous times. I won't give up on the series or the author but I sure hope it gets better than this.

    Story
    "Female lead ruined the book"
    Would you try another book from Lara Adrian and/or Hillary Huber?

    I wouldn't say that it is a waste of $ to buy this book, just be prepared for some disappointment. I have listened to all of the previous books in this series and have enjoyed them, but the female lead in this story had me wanting to shut it off before the first chapter. The narrator does a good job with these books, but I feel that the choice of a slightly southern aristocratic tone for Claire left me clenching my teeth. It's frustrating because I was so looking forward to the the male lead's story, I loved him in the previous books.


    What could Lara Adrian have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Give the female lead a better brain and more character, have Hillary drop the southern twang.


    Any additional comments?

    I think that Lara Adrian and Hillary Huber do a great job over all, this book was just not for me. I'm skipping ahead to the next one with fingers crossed.
