Midnight Breed is one of the first paranormal romance books I read and I instantly fell in love with the creative and original world Lara Adrian created. The characters stick with you, well after the story has ended and you are always left clamoring for the next book. Every book in this series was great but I have to say that Darker After Midnight is the EPIC book of the series and was truly phenomenal. I really can't give much details without giving away spoilers, so I will do my best to give you a summary.

When Deeper Than Midnight ended, Sterling Chase risked his life by running out of the compound and surrendering himself to the human police and that is where we find him when Darker After Midnight begins. He wanted to give Lucan, the rest of the Order and their mates a chance to flee the compound before the police found them. Chase is now locked up and the bloodlust is riding him hard but he will do what needs to be done in order to save the Order and their mates, the only ones he considers his family and friends. When Tavia Fairchild arrives at the police station for a line up, all hell breaks loose. When Chase meets up again with Tavia, he learns that she is much more than anyone could have expected, to him and to the Breed, and he will stop at nothing to protect her.

Tavia Fairchild is the assistant to a United States senator who also happens to be Dragos' newest minion. Tavia knows nothing about vampires or things that go bump in the night so when she sees Chase for what he really is, and in the throes of bloodlust no less, she thinks he is a monster that's on a killing spree. Tavia's life has been turned upside down. Everything she's ever known is not what it seemed and now Dragos is after her.

I have to disagree with the rave reviews for this book. Looking at it as a stand alone, it's just okay. Viewing it as the grand finale of a long series in which I invested time and money, it's a complete miss.

Without giving too much away, here are the issues I had with this book: story rehashing ad nauseum. I get the necessity of bringing series newbies up to speed, but It was almost painful to have a series synopsis in every chapter. Heres a thought: If you are starting a series at the tenth book, you should expect to be a little lost.

This book had more holes and inconsistencies than all of the earlier books combined. Maybe I need to improve my reading comprehension. Or maybe Im just being waaaaaay too picky, but am I the only one who noticed these inconsistencies (MAY BE SPOILERS COMING UP): Dragos Is a second Gen vampire. Only first generation vampires can create minions (this we learned earlier in the series). Dragos is creating minions. Huh? Wait, theres more. Crimson triggers bloodlust. It was forced on Teagan in book three with almost nil effect. It was forced on a vampire in this book with near fatal results. What gives? Ok, maybe I can let that go, but this one really bugged me: i thought vampires couldn't be photographed. Wasn't that why gabrielles cell phone photo of the rogues in the first book could not be deciphered by humans? But in this book civilians are snapping clear vampire pics all over the place. I could go on.... My point is that I was disgusted my the number of inconsistencies. Think I'm being too picky? Maybe. But after spending time and money on a series, I deserve better than an author who is obviously too distracted by her own budding fame to give her readers a decently crafted finale. Sorry.

It's awfully hard to keep momentum up through such a long series. Lara Adrian has, for the most part, been successful at keeping me engaged. However, I think this book is the first one that slumped a bit.

Thar be many spoilers ahead. Yar. Don't read if you haven't finished the book yet.

******SPOILERS HERE******

1. YOU STILL HAVE TIME TO STOP READING NOW BEFORE THE SPOILERSSSSS. Bloodlust. Going Rogue. It was supposed to be Sterling Chase's big problemo during this book, and Ms. Adrian definitely delivered on that promise for the first quarter of it. However, I felt that as soon as Chase got his eyeballz on the female protagonist with her glyphs, that struggle faded into the background. It cropped up now and again, notably during the scene where she convinced him to mate her, but I never really believed that fighting this addiction was a real struggle for him. So much of it felt glossed over. For the balance Lara Adrian was trying to walk between smut and action and violence and lurv, I understand why she made that choice. But I felt a bit sad. I wanted to hear about Chase's struggle.

I wonder if Ms. Adrian was hoping for us to believe that being with Tavia was enough to assuage some of that horrible bloodlust... that his lust for her was enough to help him keep the darker urges at bay. Call me a cynic, but I've known addicts, and that notion is way overly romanticized. An addict loves his or her addiction more than he or she loves anything else. And if Chase was really walking the line as closely as he seemed to think, it makes it harder to believe that he was able to shunt that need off for as long as he did.

2. Tavia is a Gen One female. Sigh.
