Book Description

With a dagger in her hand and vengeance on her mind, Darkhaven beauty Elise Chase prowls Boston’s streets in search of retribution against the Rogue vampires who took from her everything she cherished. Using an extraordinary psychic gift, she tracks her prey, well aware that the power she possesses is destroying her. She must learn to harness this gift, and for that she can turn to only one man—the deadliest of the Breed warriors, Tegan.

No stranger to loss, Tegan knows Elise’s pain. He knows fury, but when he slays his enemies it is with ice in his veins. He is perfect in his self-control, until Elise seeks his aid in her personal war. An unholy alliance is forged—a bond that will link them by blood and vow—and plunge them into a tempest of danger, desire, and the darkest passions of the heart. . . .

From the Paperback edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Delightful Read November 29, 2007
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have been following this author since the first book and Tegan has to be one of my favorite characters. The lone, stoic, fighter who gets the job done but gives no quarter to emotion. He has totally closed himself down and lives only for justice and vengence.

Tegan lost his breedmate to the Rogues, 500 yrs ago and still he can't forgive them or himself. He feels he should have been there to protect her. The only way he exists is to focus totally on fighting the Rogues who threaten his people. Not that his people really appreciate the men of the Order.

Elise Chase has come to the place Tegan is, her son got hooked on the drug, Crimson, and turned Rogue, he was killed by her brother-in-law right in front of her. Four months later she has left the Darkhaven and is hunting minions with her psychic power. Although she is not able to shut out the many minds pierceing her brain she continues to fight for justice and vengence.

Tegan finds her being attacked by Rogues, he saves her and follows her home where he discovers she is hunting and killing minions by herself. A minion is a human totally belonging to a master vampire. Elise has stumbled on a rare book desperately wanted by Marik, the leader of the Rogues. Rescueing her from the Rogues one more time Tegan takes her to the Order. Everyone is trying to understand the old diary she has found.

All of the people we have met before are here in the story. And all are trying to decifer the verse in the book. More secrets are revealed and Elise demands Tegan help her in the battle by sharing his blood with her. The blood bond between mates in not to be used in this way and there will be a price for her and Tegan.

5.0 out of 5 stars Five Blue Ribbons from Romance Junkies! October 30, 2007
Format:Mass Market Paperback
MIDNIGHT AWAKENING, book three of The Midnight Breed Series, features Elise Chase, a widowed Darkhaven female, and Tegan, the deadliest warrior of the Order.

Breedmate widow Elise Chase moved out of the Darkhaven enclave after the death of her son Camden. Vowing that he will not have died in vain, Elise uses her gift of hearing people's thoughts in order to stalk and prey upon the Minions of Rogue vampires. She has one focus in mind. Vengeance. She wants to avenge the death of her son and if she has to kill to do it, then she will kill. And for months she does so with outstanding precision until one night her gift's sensory overload is almost too much and Elise is seen leaving the scene of her latest kill. As if her night couldn't get any worse, she runs into a spitting and voracious Rogue bent on her destruction. Her unlikely savior just happens to be the deadliest vampire the Order has to offer. Later, once the battle is over and Elise is once again trying to drown out the thoughts of others, she comes face to face with Tegan and asks him to help her weed out and focus on those thoughts that will help her with her mission. Tegan does the one thing that Elise begs him not to; he refuses.

Tegan, a Gen One vampire, is the toughest and most deadly of the Order. Nightly he battles ruthlessly in the conflict against Rogue vampires and it is on one such night that he sees a small figure leaving the scene of a crime. Stalking the figure's scent, Tegan is led to an alley fight in which he realizes that the woman fighting for her life against a Rogue is none other than Elise Chase, a beautiful Darkhaven widow. Tegan orders Elise home where he follows her once cleanup is complete.

5.0 out of 5 stars This great vampire series continues November 30, 2007
Format:Mass Market Paperback
"Midnight Awakening" is the third in Lara Adrian's Vampire Breed series and it's another great read. Comparisons with J R Ward's Black Dagger Brotherhood books continue, especially as this third book is about the emotionally damaged and loner vampire who finds his match in a damaged woman who no longer feels her place is in the society of her peers (rather like Z and Bella in Lover Awakened). However this story also has many differences, particularly in the locations in which it is set. Most of the action in this book takes place in Berlin and it's clear the author has some familiarity with the city, although I felt there were occasional lapses when the locals seemed to speak English automatically. However overall the change of setting made it an interesting book.

The hero of this book is Tegan, one of the Gen One vampires who are oldest and strongest but also the most liable to go 'rogue' and become bloodlusting dangerous vampires that have to be killed. He connected briefly with Elise, a vampire widow and sister-in-law to Sterling Chase, in the last book. In this book they find themselves meeting again unexpectedly and Tegan is shocked by the situation into which Elise has moved. She has vowed vengeance against the Rogues who killed her son and goes out at night attacking them; Tegan eventually has to take her to the warriors' mansion for her own safety, and it's at that point where they find themselves beginning to connect. When Elise has to come with him to Berlin to follow a lead, their relationship becomes more complex.

Much of the romance aspect of this book sees the characters alternately wanting to be together and wanting to stay apart to protect themselves from the fragility that love can bring.
