Publisher's Summary

In the frozen Alaskan wilderness, former state trooper Jenna Darrow survives an unspeakable breach of body and soul. But with her narrow escape comes an even greater challenge. For strange changes are taking place within her, as she struggles to understand - and control - a new hunger. To do so, she will seek shelter in the Boston compound of the Order, an ancient race of vampire warriors whose very existence is shrouded in mystery.

Perhaps the most mysterious of them all is Brock, a brooding, dark-eyed alpha male whose hands hold the power to comfort, heal... and arouse.

As she recovers under Brock's care, Jenna finds herself drawn to the Order's mission: to stop a ruthless enemy and its army of assassins from subjecting Earth to a reign of terror. Yet in spite of their resolve, a purely physical relationship without strings soon binds Brock and Jenna together with a desire fiercer than life and stronger than death itself - until a secret from Brock's past and Jenna's own mortality challenges their forbidden love to the ultimate trial by fire.

Spend some more time among the Midnight Breed.

    "Love the story lines..."

    I love all of these Midnight breed books, I am a little disappointed that they end so abruptly. So much time is given developing the characters - then it is over end of story. I can't wait to see what the next one will be like so see what has developed with Jenna and Brock and the others. Is she or isn't she, that is the question waiting for the answer.

    "Not as good"

    I have really enjoyed this whole series, but I thought this installment wasn't as good as the other books. The main characters (Brock & Jenna) were not well developed and the plot failed to pick up the on going 'Dragos vs The Order' theme. It seemed almost as if the author has written this book without a clear idea of where she intends the series plot to go.

    "Creative Twist to Story Line"

    This installment, Book 8, is unique as compared to others in the series. The story really begins to draw from earlier installments... tying together critical details uncovered regarding Dragos' plans. The love affair that develops between Brock & Jenna lives up to the romantic element readers have come to expect from the series. Watch out for the shower scene!

    Here, the strong female characters in the story graduate beyond Renata, the powerful breedmate from Book 5. However, Jenna was once only human until her encounter with the ancient... the story picks up right where Shades of Midnight, Book 7 leaves off. The mysterious thoughts of the ancient expounded while in the cabin in the previous installment sets up for Book 8. Certain physical changes are detailed well, but I felt let down by the lack of development in the story/plot of Jenna's character. After having taken the time to develop/support her transition from human into an 'other', neither this installment nor subsequent installments develop the implications/intention of the ancient's motivations or the purpose for Jenna's transition. Such, along with a few others, leave the reader hanging at the story's conclusion.

    "One of the very best narrators I've heard"

    These are great books, some compare to BDB but that is not true. They are VERY different and the entire series flows like a single book which is GREAT. I got hooked and now can not wait until the next book comes out. The narrators many different voices make it all the better. LOVE IT!

    "WOW! LOVE IT!!"

    Loved this book! Thought the new twists added were great and the steamy shower scenes didn't disappoint either. I highly recommend this book and series to any Feehan, Showalter or Moning fans!

    "Excellent"

    All of her books are great but this one is my favorite. Hilary Hubber does a very good job narrating Lara books.

    "The ending was bad"

    This story ended to abruptly. What happened to Jenna' s change?? What is she, Alien, Vampire or human. Is she done changing??? The answers should not be in another book, they should be in this one.

    Story
    "TEAM JENNA & BROCK !!"

    I loved Jenna & Brock's story, not too different from all the other couples' stories, but great just the same. They, like all the breed and breed mates thus far and, I'm sure, those in future stories deserve happiness.

    The stories/books just keep getting better and better.

    Thanks Lara Adrian & Hilary Huber for taking us to a realm and reality that can jettison us into a space beyond our own world where we can wile away some of the monotony of our mundane lives & venture into the world of intrigue that is far beyond what everyday life can offer, even if only for the duration of this series. Who doesn't want an alpha male who is uber protective, gentle, kind, sensitive and holds his female in utmost regard above all else.
