What a disappointment! I loved Andreas from the other books but this story left a lot to be desired.

I'm sorry for spoilers, but I have to do it. There were so many problems with this book, it's hard to even outline them all. I only give it two stars because it's part of a series that has some really good stuff. Otherwise it might even have been a DNF.



Okay, first of all -- the heroine supposedly blood-bonded with the villain months after the hero disappeared from her life (about 30 years ago). The villain is a true monster, although the heroine doesn't actually know that. She only knows he's a jerk who never sees her but about once every six months. But my question is, why in the world, when you know the man you love is still alive, do you blood bond with someone you don't love at all? Someone who may be a friend, but who definitely isn't the one you love? Blood bonding is forever. Not just a fifty-year or so sentence, it's forEVER. Or until one of you dies which, barring extreme circumstances, NEVER happens. So ... what was she thinking?

I had thought she had been forced into the blood-bonding with Roth. That's the only way I could accept what follows. But she wasn't. She went into it by choice. Made her bed, so to speak.

So, then we have the return of Andreas, the man she really loves and he's out for vengeance against Roth -- her mate. He attacks Roth's Darkhaven, killing everyone (yes, even family members, which is hypocritical because that's exactly why he hates Roth -- no matter that the villain doesn't care about them, it's still the same thing). Then he attacks Roth's country home, where Claire resides, killing all the agents who are there to protect her.

I don't even know where to begin.

If you've been following this series since the first installment, I know you have to read this book. This has many important events concerning the future of the Order and the Breed plus an incredibly disturbing/exciting occurrence in the end. However, you shouldn't expect a good story for the main characters, this is by far the most disappointing couple's story yet.

When it comes to developments for the plot as a whole, this book is very necessary and leaves the reader curious about the warrior's future. But that's the only good thing about it.

I was so eager to read this book when I saw it would be about Andreas Reichen. The previous book brought alarming news about Reichen's Darkhaven and his good life in Germany. He's a character presented since Tagen's story and someone I had grown to like. A strong, intelligent and competent man. The way his ability was presented in Veil of Midnight created the expectation of something big - heroic even -, awe inspiring pyro powers.

Also, since the first book, Lara Adrian's story and writing had been uplifting remarkably. From a dull first book to a good third, a better one with the forth and a very good one with the fifth.

When Ashes of Midnight starts it seems that the expectation will be met, since Reichen is playing havoc in Germany, bringing revenge on everyone involved with the massacre at his house. But then, for reasons unknown to me, the author starts to paint Reichen as a weak individual, self-contempt and fear ruling him, nothing like the character we were presented in the past.

The heroine, Claire, is selfish, coward and naive to the point of stupidity.

Ashes of Midnight by Lara Adrian
Paranormal Romance- May 26th, 2009
4 ½ stars

The thing I like best about Lara Adrian's Breed Series is that she doesn't take her readership for granted. Each time I read one of her books I learn something new and exciting. I only wish I knew more...but if she didn't drag it out it wouldn't be half as intriguing. In her latest installment, Ashes of Midnight we meet perhaps her most fearsome hero to date.

Riechen is a vampire bent on revenge. The attack and ultimate destruction of his family devastated him. As a result, the powers he had long tried to keep dormant resurfaced with deadly consequences. Reichen is a dangerous and unstable pyrokinetic. With nothing left to live for he hunts down Roth, the vampire responsible. The same vampire who seduced and stole the woman he loved.

Claire's relationship with Roth is an obligatory blood bond. One she never enjoyed. Bound by duty and honor but never love. An arrangement she agreed to while young and naïve. After Reichen broke her heart and when she foolishly trusted Roth.

When Reichen finds her on his search to destroy Roth, Claire and Reichen cannot help their mutual attraction. But to be together is to betray the sacrament of the blood bond. To make matters worse, Reichen can only think of justice, but each time he uses his powers he become less able to control it. Claire fears for his life but knows he will not give up vengeance.

It was a pleasure to read Ashes of Midnight. I was particularly fascinated to learn more about the blood bond. I enjoyed revisiting members of the Order and their breedmates as they played key roles in this story.
