Publisher's Summary

In this pulse-pounding and thrillingly sensual novel, New York Times best-selling author Lara Adrian returns to the mesmerizing world of the Midnight Breed, following new characters into a dark future where an uneasy peace can unravel into war - and a great betrayal can mask an all-consuming love.

Twenty years after the terror of First Dawn - when mankind learned that vampires lived secretly among them - the threat of violence reigns as the two species struggle to coexist. The only group preserving the fragile harmony is the Order, an elite cadre of Breed warriors dedicated to protecting humans and vampires alike. And in this precarious world of torn loyalties and shattered trust, Mira, a fiery squad captain, finds that every fight bears an intensely personal cost.

Raised among the Order, Mira has always believed in the warrior’s code of swift - and even lethal - justice. But the one thing she desires more than the Order’s hard-won acceptance is Kellan Archer, a sexy but troubled Breed fighter. In love with him since childhood, Mira once broke through his tough exterior during an unexpected night of rapture, but the next day he mysteriously disappeared, never to return.

Kellan didn’t think he would ever see Mira again - or have to confront the truth of why he left. After abandoning the Order years ago, he now leads a band of human rebels intent on carrying out their own vigilante rule of law. Yet a high-profile kidnapping assignment brings him face-to-face with the past he sought to avoid, and the striking woman he has tried desperately to forget. And as tensions mount and the risk of bloodshed grows, Kellan and Mira must take sides - between the competing missions that dominate their lives, and the electrifying passion that claims their hearts.

    I love to read. I love all genres but romance in particular. The hotter and steamy and sexier book is the more I want to read it.

    "Not my favorite of hers but...."

    Not one of my favorites but still good. The two main characters were hard for me to connect with so that was a problem but I did like the overall plot that involves all The Order. That part was good. I'll still read these as they come out but I didn't think this one was quite as good as the ones before.

    Also I think part of it is this felt like a chunk of transition in the world and that can always be a problem.

    Good narrator.

    "New Generation of Breed, New Generation of Great!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Edge of Dawn to be better than the print version?

    I didn't read the print version but the narrator brings the story to life!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Edge of Dawn?

    Seeing how the story is set a couple decades after the last book, it awesome to see how not just Mira but the other Breed children have grown.

    "THIS IS THE NEWEST WINNER IN CHIVALRY AND ROMANCE!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, I have read every book on the breed by Lara Adrian and I have never been disappointed. It seems she just keeps getting better and better to the point I can hardly wait for the next in the series.I


    What other book might you compare Edge of Dawn to and why?

    Edger of Dawn might be closely compared to Darker after Midnight in that Dragos forces the warriors to come forward in order to protect "The Order" and Mankind.


    What about Hillary Huber’s performance did you like?

    Hillary Huber does a fantastic job with her performance every time. Using only the nuance of her voice and the spacing the characters each came alive.

    What does Hillary Huber bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I love how she can bring the characters to life for me. She does the female and male voices very well. There is distinction between the vocies.


    Any additional comments?

    Love this series and can't wait for the next book. Adrian has opened a whole new cast of characters and story lines so we don't have to say good-bye to the ones we love so well. It's definitely fun to see who has had children and how their stories will unfold.

    "A Little Disappointed at First"

    I have anticipated this book ever since I saw that Lara Adrian was coming up with a new book for the Midnight Breed series. To me, the book moves a little slow at first. There were some unexpected twists, and the characters were really well developed as they are in all her books. However, the buildup seems to take a long time. in truth, I didn’t start to truly enjoy the book until part two of the novel. However, I listened in hopes that things would change, and they did.

    I did like the fact that we were able to see all the characters from past books such as Lucan and Gabriel. Ms. Adrian gives a glimpse into the characters’ lives over the last two decades. We meet the children of the mates from the earlier novels and get to see the warriors and their mates. I think the only mated couple that is not mentioned are Clare and Andre.

    While the first part of the novel did a great deal of catching us up on what’s happened for the past two decades, there is a romance going on, a kidnapping, conspiracy, and treason issues, and Mirror is in deeper than she initially thought. The one thing I truly loved about this novel is that Mirror grew up to be a kickass woman that can take care of herself. She’s a little high strung and vicious at times, but she’s a good fighter and a wonderful woman. The end of the book not only surprised me, but made me want to call Ms. Adrian and tell her to hurry up with the next book because there has to be a next book. Seeing Nathan, Kellin, and Rafe all grown up was treat too. In the end, I was surprised, pleased, and eagerly awaiting more.

    "Hot!"
    Would you listen to Edge of Dawn again? Why?

    Yes. Great story! Very sexy. Keeps you on the edge.


    What other book might you compare Edge of Dawn to and why?

    The black dagger brotherhood series: can't specifically compare to another book, yet similar to this series. Really good story, great action and twists that you do not necessarily see coming. Hot male vampires!


    Have you listened to any of Hillary Huber’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Similar


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Love Lost Found


    Any additional comments?

    Highly recommended. One of the best books in the midnight breed series.

    "Terrific New Direction"

    Love the new direction the MB is heading. I cannot wait for book 12! This is insane because usually by book 10 a series tends to go stale but Edge of Dawn has the maturity of a book 3 when a series really hits it stride but with the freshness of cracking open Book 1. Thank you Laura Adrian for finding the sweet-spot!
