Publisher's Summary

Savannah Dupree is a freshman studying at Boston University on a full scholarship. But Savannah possesses something even more remarkable than a quick mind and an insatiable curiosity for learning. With a simple touch, she can see an object's past - a skill that puts her life in danger when her studies bring her into contact with a centuries-old English sword and the terrible secret hidden within the blade's history. In all his 300 years of living as one of the Breed, vampire warrior Gideon never dreamed he'd ever again see the blade that ended his young brothers' lives ages ago in London. There's one certain way to prove Gideon's suspicion, but it will mean using Savannah to help uncover the truth. With danger closing in from all sides, the passion that ignites between Gideon and Savannah will tempt them to risk their hearts and lives for a love that might just last an eternity.

Contains mature themes.

Really awful narration

The narrator did a horrible job narrating the male lead character Gideon. He was supposed to be British but having lived in Boston for many many decades. You'd expect a toned down English accent, right? Nope. She was all over the place, sometimes sounding Scottish, sometimes Australian, some Irish, and maybe even a little Canadian. There was some English accent in there, but it wasn't consistently from one area in England either. It was distracting enough to pull me right out of the story, which was really good on its own.

The start of a new beginning.

This is my first foray into Lara Adrian and I am pleasantly surprised. A lot of people have told me that this book is almost like BDB (Black Dagger Brotherhood by J.R. Ward. I can see why some people could see that. There are a lot of silimiatries when it comes to these series. I cannot say if this series is on the same level of BDB but I am up to the task.

I enjoyed Savannah and Gideon. Savannah was not the typical heroine. She did not go half cocked and think what she knew was best. There are so many times where a heroine thinks that she knows what she is doing but actually puts not only herself but the hero in danger. Savannah knew what she could do and what she couldn't and accepted that.

Gideon was you typical alpha male but in a good way. He knew he cared for her from the beginning and wanted to protect her. Unfortunately for him and most alpha males then tend to go overboard or tend to hind things from the heroine and shit starts to hit the fan. In this case that is what happens.

Even with the couple of hiccups I enjoyed this book and I am looking forward to learning more about this world and I am excited to read more about the different characters. I heard a lot of good things about Lucan's book, Kiss of Midnight.

Fantastic Series

I loved this book. It was exciting from start to finish. I liked Savannah and the gift she has. It was like having the Midas touch with a twist. The narrators Voice was just the right pitch and aided me in engaging with the characters and not the narrators Voice. The Breed Series is awesome!

Good but not great

It gives a little back story for the characters, but not much. It's quaintly entertaining that it takes place in the 1970s - comical where they're ogling over a computer and other mentions that set the date of the story. It seemed mostly like more of the same from the series, but nothing overly amazing. If you like the other books in the series, you'll probably like this one too.

Change of characters

He I’m just saying that you all need to make more stories about African Americans women with plus size we would like to here how sexy we are to in a book not just white women with DD breast and small waist long legs we are beautiful to short hair let’s make it enjoyable for more than just white girls and men

The narrator

I didn’t like it
The other reviews are completely true, the narration left much to be desired.
The story was fine. Nothing new, predictable. There was some unanswered questions like, what happen to the bullet stuck in his brain? Or, why did he loose one of his lability? But I guess I can let it go.

A touch of midnight...?more like syrupy sweet

All n all it was a pretty good "Short story" read. But that accent ....come on, just a little too over the top for my taste. I had a hard time getting into the story! It sounds like she was trying to sound like Scarlett O' harrar from 'Gone with The Wind". I lived in Georgia & people don't really sound /that way. Lol
