Book Review: Edge of Dawn by Lara Adrian


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.

As a huge fan of the Midnight Breed series, I was thrilled to see there was a new release featuring Mira.  Edge of Dawn surprising begins 20 years after the Book #10 in the Midnight Breed series. Admittedly, I was a bit confused in the beginning, because the last time I read about Mira (one of the book's main characters) she was just a child. Fast forward 20 years and she is now an adult, a warrior among the ranks of the Order.

The author did an amazing job of describing and explaining the fast forwarding of time in this book. The feeling between the main characters in not only believable, but heart-wrenching at moments throughout the book. 

The storyline picked up after about 50 pages and from there on out, I couldn't put it down! Edge of Dawn was a well-written love story that included some new and interesting characters as well as many of my old favorites. Overall, I continue to LOVE this series and CANNOT wait for the Midnight Breed #12! Who will Lara Adrian feature next??? Eagerly awaiting...
