At 18, Corinne Bishop was a beautiful, spirited young woman living a life of privilege as the adopted daughter of a wealthy family. Her world changed in an instant when she was stolen away and held prisoner by the malevolent vampire Dragos. After many years of captivity and torment, Corinne is rescued by the Order, a cadre of vampire warriors embroiled in a war against Dragos and his followers. Her innocence taken, Corinne has lost a piece of her heart as well - the one thing that gave her hope during her imprisonment, and the only thing that matters to her now that she is free.
Assigned to safeguard Corinne on her trip home is a formidable golden-eyed Breed male called Hunter. Once Dragos’ most deadly assassin, Hunter now works for the Order, and he’s hell-bent on making Dragos pay for his manifold sins. Bonded to Corinne by their mutual desire, Hunter will have to decide how far he’ll go to end Dragos’s reign of evil - even if carrying out his mission means shattering Corinne’s tender heart.
Spend some more time among the Midnight Breed.

I was counting the days waiting for this next story to come out and it was worth the wait. Hunter and Corrine's story was very touching. I not only listened but read the book as well. BIG props to Hilary Huber she totally brings you in to the story I almost wish I could meet a "Warrior from the Order".
I have read AND listened to all of the stories (more than once) and I love the fact that none of the stories are the same they all have their own story line. I am so over Dragos and ready for him to go down but I am sure when Lara gives us that story she is going to do it good.
Can't wait till Chase's story is realeased (FYI if you buy the book at the end Lara gives you a quick glance of the begining of Chase's story).
HAPPY LISTENING :)
Let me start by saying I am a huge fan of this series, and if you are as well, this book is a must listen/read. The story, as usual, is well written and the narrator does a fabulous job. We get to revisit most of the couples from the previous books, continue to build up the struggle between the Breed and the evil Dragos, and we see a lot of Sterling Chase and his downward spiral; and there my friends is where the disappoint comes into play. Hunter has been one of my fav???s since being introduced and I was so looking forward to his story, and well, in my opinion he was cheated! I???ll bet if I go back and try to add up the time spent on Hunter and Corrine???s love story, it???s only a little over a quarter of the book. The bulk of this book focuses on the Breed back in Boston, Dragos??? shenanigans???, and Sterling Chase, all of it good mind you, but I wanted more of Hunter and Corrine. This book is still a good addition to the series and worth the credit.
This is supposed to be Hunters story but there is so much of Chase and the others in it that it doesn't feel like we really get a chance to know Hunter. In fact in feels like it is more Chases story. Which sucks because his character sucks. If it wasn't for the on going story line I would skip Chases book all together. I have no desire to know Chase more.
The fact that Hunter gets his happily ever after is awesome. I didn't think he would. Especially being the machine that he is. Corrine is the perfect mate for him and I love that she finds her family. Very loving, peaceful, and romantic. Now I wonder what will come of Sterling Chase.
Awesome narrator. She really makes the characters come alive and believable. I am a huge fan of Lara Adrian. She really writes some amazing stories. This book is just another one of them. Loved it.
I absolutely love this series and for the first time listening to a series I hoped that it just kept going, never ending…but, that said, this book #9 came to a too abrupt end. I was hoping, after having waited for Hunter & Corrine's story, that we'd get to be at least a few steps closer to an HEA ending, but alas, we don't know what's happening with them or with them & Nathan. Hoping that in future Books we'll get to find out; I really wanted to hear of Hunter & Corrine having an HEA. Call me a hopeless romantic, but they, of all people (Breed & Breed Mate) deserved it.
