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.

    "Absolutely Wonderful!"

    As always, Hillary Huber delivers spot on narration, which makes an already great story a perfect listening experience. I still believe that she could refrain from mentioning the name of the character (from the extensive list of characters) she is representing and the audience would be able to tell like they were listening to an old friend on the phone. She's that good and that consistent.

    The previous Midnight Breed novel provided so much closure that it seemed as though we might be at an end of the series. I expected a spinoff series might be in the works but had not thought there could be such seamless continuation, much less so with a two decade time jump. Lara Adrian just proved me oh so wrong.

    This story centers on Mira, who was still a mere child in the last book and Kellan, who was still a teenager when we last met him. Mira's sweet, hopeful nature has been warped by the loss of the Breed male she would have called mate. She's now a warrior in her own right and out for vengence.

    There's a new threat on the horizion (well, at least one) and a whole new generation of Breed warriors prepared to fight along side the one's we know and love. I loved it, loved it, loved it and can't wait for more!

    "VT. FAN"
    Would you listen to Edge of Dawn again? Why?

    I DID LISTEN TO IT AGAIN. I LOVE THE WORLD ADRIAN BRINGS TO LIFE IN THIS SERIES. SHE FLAWLESSLY ENTERED INTO A NEW GENERATION OF THE BREED WITHOUT LEAVING THE CHARACTERS BEHIND THAT MADE THIS SERIES.


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

    J R WARDS SERIES OR THE PHOENIX PACK SERIES. ALSO FOR THOSE WHO LIKE THIS GENRE AND STORY LINE TRY SUZANNE WRIGHT "HERE BE SEXIST VAMPIRE" GREAT SERIES OR TERESA GABLEMAN SERIES BOTH ARE GREAT.


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

    ACTUALLY I HAVE BOTH BOOK AND AUDIO AND THERE ARE VERY FEW TIMES THAT I LIKE AUDIO OVER BOOK EVEN THOUGH I HAVE OVER 700 AUDIOBOOKS. BUT MIRA WAS LESS WHINY AND LESS OF A DOORMAT FOR KELLAN.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    BOTH. ANGRY AND FRUSTRATED BECAUSE MIRA WAS SUPPOSE TO BE SUCH A BAD ASS BUT IS WAS ALL IN HER OWN MIND BECAUSE YOU NEVER REALLY SAW ANY OF THE BAD ASS IN HER AT ALL. SHE EITHER CRIED, WHINED OR BEGGED(SHE BEGGED A LOT FOR KELLAN TO CHOSE HER I WANTED TO JUMP THRU MY IPOD AND SMACK HER TELL HER TO HAVE SOME PRIDE).


    Any additional comments?

    EVEN THOUGH MIRA WAS MY LEAST FAVORED CHARACTER IN ANY OF THE BREED SERIES BOOKS(LOVED HER AS A CHILD IN PREVIOUS BOOKS THOUGH) I WOULD NEVER GIVE UP ON THIS SERIES AND ALL THE NEW GENERATION OF BREED WARRIORS AND THEIR POSSIBLE STORY LINES HAS ME THRILLED THAT THIS SERIES WILL CONTINUE. ADRIAN SURE LEFT A CLIFF HANGER ENDING. AND THE CARROT DANGLER POSSIBLE NEXT STORYLINE WITH NATHAN AND JORDANA. CANT WAIT.

    "Good, but not great"

    Maybe I'm getting a little bored with this series, but I just never really got into this book. The futuristic setting turned me off a little from the beginning and I had to make myself return to it several times. The story line is fine and I like Mira and Kellen as characters. I especially like that Mira was made into a warrior as opposed to a shielded wimp.

    This narrator usually does an exceptional job, but there were a few parts that were completely off in terms of emotion and inflection.

    It is worth a credit, especially if you like the series overall. It just wasn't one of my favorites.

    "Who, What - Get Your Bookmarks Set"

    I don't suggest this installment if you are new to the Midnight Breed series, this is not the best book in the series to start with. I think Lara explains what has happened in other installments, but a new listener might be overwhelmed by all of characters in Edge of Dawn.

    **Caution: There are many new and reintroduced characters. I suggest you set your bookmarks when new characters are introduced.**

    I was worried I might be disappointed when I realized there was such a large time gap between Book 10 and Book 11.

    Lara Adrian did not disappoint, she did a great job catching us up with old characters and introducing the next generation of characters. Lara Adrian and Hilary Huber did not disappoint.

    I literally cheered during the big showdown. It was G R E A T.

    I love the new direction the Breed Warriors are going with the new generation warriors, and their new enemy they will need to take down.

    Mira and Kellan's relationship

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

    Yes, yes and yes

    "A new dawn..."

    I really love Adrian, but this wasn't one of my favorites. The series is basically starting anew and I understand that a lot of ground work needed to set; however, I had such high hopes for these two characters. Perhaps that is the true problem, my hopes were too high. Mira grew up to be really irritating and K isn't much better. I spent most of the book wanting to smack 'em. That being said the last hour was worth the 8 long hours leading up to it. I cannot wait for the next one.

    Story
    "Overall very good series...."
    Would you listen to Edge of Dawn again? Why?

    If it has been a few years have forgotten the ending. Usually when watch, read, or listen to any entertainment no matter how great, its only once.


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

    Perhaps surprising was when the old fellow could take a blow like eating pancakes in the morning.


    Which character – as performed by Hillary Huber – was your favorite?

    When there is a good reader and a good story well its hard to separate the two. Understanding this my favorite are the special talents of the character like Mira's foretelling eyes and the boys ultrasonic voice. Also when there's a hint of a future book based on a spark with certain characters.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Could see it coming but still moving when he lived.


    Any additional comments?

    Every book in this series is 5 stars. I do wish Lara A could put out two books a year...wouldnt it be nice....
