As night falls, Claire Roth flees, driven from her home by a fiery threat that seems to come from hell itself. Then, from out of the flames and ash, a vampire warrior emerges. He is Andreas Reichen, her onetime lover, now a stranger consumed by vengeance. Caught in the cross fire, Claire cannot escape his savage fury - or the hunger that plunges her into his world of eternal darkness and unending pleasure. Nothing will stop Andreas from destroying the vampire responsible for slaughtering his Breed brethren...even if he must use his former lover as a pawn in his deadly mission. Blood-bonded to his treacherous adversary, Claire can lead Andreas to the enemy he seeks, but it is a journey fraught with danger - and deep, unbidden desires. For Claire is the one woman Andreas should not crave and the only one he's ever loved. A dangerous seduction begins - one that blurs the lines between predator and prey, and stokes the flames of a white-hot passion that may consume all in its path.
I've been reading this series from book 1, and suggest others do likewise, as the series definitely needs to be read in order. We are introduced to Andreas, our hero, in previous books, when he was called upon to help "the order". I wasn't sure how he'd work as the hero of a book, as he wasn't actually a member of "the order". I had no idea about his special talent and apparently neither did anyone else.
In this book, he rekindles things with an old flame, and there are lots of complications. I'm usually not into "second time around" romances, but this book makes it work. The romantic tension is just right, the advancement of the back story to the series is action packed, and the ending is satisfying.
A great addition to the series.

When I was growin up, we had the AM radio with the weekly radio series. Whether it was
"Sky King", "Straight Arrow", "The Shadow" or "The Inner Sanctum", every week for a time we could loose ourselves in the stories. As I listen to one of the Night Breed stories, I have the same since of enjoyment. That's why I would recommend this audiobook to anyone
Andreau Rankin never stopped his love of the woman of his dreams, but ran away in an attempt to protect her, from what? This series is a favorite of mine and never fails to deliver fantastic adventure. Hillary Huber brings these stories to life with her superb performance and as always delivers a top shelf job.
I definately recommend this book and if you've not read them before, start at book one, because this will give you more insight into the utter humanity of each of the characters.

This is book 7 in the midnight breed series....and I liked this one very much! This is the story of Andreas Richen, and the mate he should have had. We last saw Andreas as he blew up his dark haven after finding everyone inside murdered and his human female lover turned into a minion! We pick up the story with him on a revenge mission, he WILL make those responsible pay! But does that extend to his sworn enemies mate... A woman who SHOULD have been his....but she is mated to another, an unbreakable blood bond, the highest law of the Breed... He can't act on his feelings now that he has found her.... Or can he?
Very fun! Great read! This series is Nothing like black dagger brotherhood so if you are holding back on reading this because you don't want to be ticked off by a rip off, it isn't! Go download now!

Any additional comments?
Story line of the series is still going strong, Hillary Huber is an awesome narrator, I LOVE all the characters that have been brought to this series UNTIL CLAIRE. I got to the point where every time she spoke, I had to scream what an idiot she was. It was that or stab myself in the ears. I have no patience for simpering, weak females that are suppose to be a focal character. She truly is too stupid to live. Poor Andraes, he deserved so much better.
Andreas is a powerful vampire with his own dark haven. Except Dragos is out for blood leaving Andreas' dark haven obliterated and his human love a minion. All there is left for Andreas is vengeance. Except his vengeance is costing him his humanity and puts his vampire love and someone else's breed mate in his path. His path of vengeance will cost him everything and his running a risk of not only losing his humanity but falling into bloodlust. Claire is the only one that can save him. Is there enough time?
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Yes, the entire series are wonderful reads, and this book is in the top half of my enjoyment list.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Ashes of Midnight?
When Reichen has to decide if he will master his psychic gift...or if it will master him.
Which scene was your favorite?
Too many to name...or to say anything about without spoiling so much of the book.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
It's a good read, but like all her novels is too long to listen to all at once. It's a good read for extended periods (like travel or gym workouts).
Any additional comments?
As always, the narrator does a good job, and doesn't leave out the necessary German accents.
Any additional comments?
I've been interested in Andreas Reichen for quite a while and it was nice to have more of his story. I found his and Clare's story to be quite engaging. Watching Andreas struggle with his pyrotechnic powers was very interesting. I've read a few reviews encouraging others to skip this novel, but I think you'd miss a lot of important information for the overreaching arch of the series if you chose to let this one slip buy.
I really love this series, do not miss out. If you do not have time to read, try to listen to the series, you will not regret it!
Would you try another book from Lara Adrian and/or Hillary Huber?
Lara Adrian, yes. I'm seriously considering skipping the final book in the series. I'm just getting tired of the narrator.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Too many to list.
How could the performance have been better?
I think adding a male for the male characters would be good, as well as replacing Ms. Huber with a female who's voice is not as rough.
