Veil of Midnight by Lara Adrian
Paranormal Vampire Romance Mass Market Paperback- December 30th, 2008
4 ½ stars

Veil of Midnight is the 5th in Lara Adrian's Midnight Breed Series and another hit in her continuing vampire series. Unlike many authors whose continued series have run out of steam and seem flat, Lara Adrian's books build upon each other, enthralling her readers. Mesmerizing characters and fascinating plot lines are introduced, which are sure to keep readers wanting more!

Nikolai is a vampire of the Order, an elite vampire group whose purpose is to protect the vampire society as well as humankind. But, Nikolai has never been good at playing by the rules and when he is sent to track down a vampire Elder he meets more than his share of trouble.

When Renata first meets Nikolai she is puzzled by his decency. He is unlike any of the repulsive and cruel vampires she has been forced to serve. She has been humiliated and used by a vampire Elder for her psychic powers as well as her blood. Renata spends her days plotting to escape and stay alive. Renata's sole comfort is a young psychic girl for whom she cares. When a powerful group of renegade vampires threaten Renata and her charge, Renata realizes she needs Nikolai's protection.

Veil of Midnight is sure to be yet another best seller and is guaranteed to delight and captivate fans of the paranormal and those jaded by the 'typical' romance. It has suspense, fascinating world building, and enthralling characters. I particularly enjoyed the characters interactions. Although both characters began as enemies, they grew to earn each another's respect and love. Renata was a resourceful and ruthless woman who was more than a match for Nikolai.

*** 3 1/2 stars
I won't give you a book description since there are a few already. What I didn't like was the love story part of the book. I felt that the couple lacked something, not quite sure what but there was something missing. The relationship felt a little flat to me. The continuation of the saga from previous books was better. I liked that this book moved the big picture foward and held some interesting plot twists and surprises. It seems to me the first few breed books had a delightful and exciting romance involved, the last two seemed a little lacking in that dept. I am still planning to continue following this series and did enjoy the book, just not as much as the first few.

Nikolai has been sent by his commander to Montreal to find a Gen One vampire that is in danger. The blond warrior gets more than he bargained for when he is tricked by a beautiful woman named Renata and is immobilized by her psychic force. Upon awakening, he finds his quarry and is invited into the Gen One's lair. Once there, Niko comes face to face with the atrocities this vampire has been hiding on his land. When Niko loses his temper, he is thrown off the vamp's land. Niko, however, isn't leaving without a fight and he for sure isn't leaving without Renata, the woman with whom he saw his destiny.

Renata has been a prisoner of Yakut's, a Gen One vampire for two years. First brought to his home as a woman to hunt, Renata impressed the forceful vampire with her psychic ability and made her one of his bodyguards. When Renata overhears the huge blond warrior asking about her boss in a club, she sets him up for capture. The tables are turned, however, when he is invited to Yakut's home. No matter how much the warrior makes her tingle, Renata will not forget the seriousness of her life nor will she forget her promise to keep the child Mira safe. When Mira is sold out from under Renata, she vows vengeance.

Nikolai and Renata set out to find the sinister Rogue that has suddenly become more powerful than any of his Order thought. With vampires being murdered and allies turning against each other, the only two people Nikolai and Renata can trust are themselves and in turn that trust leads to a bonding - breed style.

Yearning for Nikolai's story since Kiss of Midnight, I knew that his mate would have to be a warrior worthy of him. Renata could not have been more perfect for him.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
The Order, a military faction of the Breed civilization, is in the midst of saving not only their species, but humanity as well. The Breed truly are a sub-species of humans. Having originated from aliens who where able to breed with human women, the offspring of these unions were left with the terrible task of bringing down these ancient aliens in order to preserve Earth's human inhabitants from their bloody destruction. These vampires were known within the Breed as Gen One vampires, and today are a rare find in the Breed population having existed since the death of their ancient alien fathers centuries ago.

Lucan, leader of The Order, has charged one of his combatants, Nikolai, with the task of making contact with a Montreal Gen One named Sergei Yakut. This elusive Gen One is to be offered their protection because an unknown assassin is systematically killing the Gen One Breeds and thereby exterminating the most powerful members of their species.

During Nikolai's search for Yakut he encounters the very mysterious Renata who welcomes him with a very sharp blow to his ego. Renata is a Breedmate - a special human female who can mate with the Breed. Each Breedmate can be identified by the same crescent moon and teardrop birthmark. In addition to their ability to provide offspring, Breedmates also have psychic abilities that are unique to each individual. Renata has the ability to create a high pitched sound heard only by the Breed that creates debilitating pain. Suspecting that Nikolai is the hit man that nearly murdered her boss, Sergei Yakut, Renata brings the big Breed down with every intention of capture and questioning.
