A warrior trained in bullets and blades, Renata cannot be bested by any man---vampire or mortal. But her most powerful weapon is her extraordinary psychic ability---a gift both rare and deadly. Now a stranger threatens her hard-won independence---a golden-haired vampire who lures her into a realm of darkness…and pleasure beyond imagining. A combat-loving adrenaline junkie, Nikolai dispenses his own justice to enemies of the Breed---and his latest quarry is a ruthless assassin. One woman stands in his way: the seductive, cool-as-ice bodyguard, Renata. But Renata's powers are put to the test when a loved one, a child, is threatened and she's forced to turn to Niko for help. As the two join forces, as desire fans the flames of a deeper hunger, Renata's life is under siege by a man who offers the exquisite pleasure of a blood bond---and a passion that could save or doom them both forever.
Spend some more time among the Midnight Breed.

"This is one of the best vampire series on the market!" (Romantic Times Book Review)
I waited almost two years for this book to come on audio. Yes, I did read the paperback. However, the audio was so intense it was not hearing or reading the story for the first time. Reneta is my favorite. You feel what she feels.
Reading is a must-have ESCAPE...
I've enjoyed re-listening to many bookmarked portions of the story.
Renata is by far unique to the Breed series to date. She's strong-minded, strong-willed, and a powerful female character. Renata is real... she's had a difficult life and has learned not to count on anyone. If not for Mira, the innocent child she shares difficult circumstances with, she would have no purpose. Niko manages to peel back the many protective layers she uses to shield herself and develop a true partnership.
Huber does a great job acting out some intense scenes in the story. I love her interpretation of accents as well as the consistency of their voices.
Initially, the story unfolds more slowly. Once Renata breaks Niko out (about Chapter 16), you won't want to put the story down.
Along with Midnight Rising (Book 4), Veil of Midnight (Book 5) is pivotal to the overall series' story. The reader really begins to understand the dark plans of Dragos.
I'm a fan of this series and this book was another great installment. Thank goodness Tantor is committed to the entire series, and Hilary is still narrating. Nice work!
The Midnight Breed series has now become one of my top favorite vampire series. I feel I don't need to completely review this one book because it is just one part of the whole, but it was terrific.
I'll be using my credits for the remainder books very soon.
I didn't think it could get better then the previous books but this one has become my favorite! Can't wait for Shades of Midnight.
Ms. Huber's voice is rough sounding. Her portrayal of women and males sounded so similar that, except for those with obvious accents, I couldn't tell who was talking unless she specified who it was.
I am coming to this series late, and reading it in order, so my comments won't make much of a difference. Just thought I would throw in my 2-cents.
Once I adjusted to the alien back story, the Read was satisfying. I find that I prefer it in text, rather than audio because I have trouble with narrator. Often times Huber sounds bored. Her accents are marginal. That being said, she does better with the Canadian french and the Russian in "Veil" than she did with the Spanish accent in the last book. So far, "Midnight Veil" is the best story.
My favorite continuing stories in this genre are JR Ward's "Black Dagger Series" and Cole's "Immortals After Dark" series. Both are excellently written, original, smart, and deliciously narrated by Jim Frangione and Robert Petkoff respectively. Petkoff does a Scottish Lykae like no other. It actually makes me swoon.
The Midnight Breed series would benefit greatly with a male narrator.
