Corinne Bishop is finally free after being kidnapped and forced to endure decades of torture at the hands of the depraved vampire Dragos. She wishes to return home to her wealthy family so they can help her get back the one thing that matters most to her. Hunter has been given the task to escort Corinne home. Once a lethal assassin, Hunter escaped from Dragos and joined the Order, an elite group of vampires who fight to keep their kind safe. He knows first hand the brutality Dragos is capable of and Hunter will do anything to stop him, even break the heart of the only person he's ever loved.

Hunter is different from his fellow Breed warriors, all male vampires. He was born from Dragos' heinous experiments of using breedmates, human women who are able to mate with vampires, and an imprisoned Ancient, aliens who mated with human women to create the Breed race. He was created to be a perfect assassin, void of all emotions. You get glimpses of him caring when Hunter is around the little girl who lives in the Order compound but other than that, he's like a machine. That is until Corinne. I think part of the attraction is that he finally had someone who understood what he went through. As they spend more time together, he starts to gradually allow himself to feel and care of Corinne. I liked that Corinne didn't drastically change Hunter but instead showed him that it's ok to care. The changes in Hunter are subtle and I think if it would have been any more than that it would have felt forced and I wouldn't have found it right for his character.

Corinne was taken by Dragos because she wears the mark of a breedmate and was used in his plan to make assassins.

I was really looking forward to Hunter's book since he is one of my favorite Breed characters. I wasn't looking forward to him being paired with Corinne but I got over that as I read the story. But, it wasn't that much of a story. The book kept going back to Chase. If Lara Adrian wanted to write about Chase soooo bad, then he should have been book #9!! He took up way too much time in this book.

It was a total letdown even though I was glad to read about Dante, Tess, Mira and the other characters from the series. Hunter was an assassin for Dragos who managed to get free. He then joined the Order to destroy Dragos. In book #8, Brock and Jenna's book, the Order's breedmates managed to rescue some breedmates that Dragos has captured over decades.

Dragos experimented, tortured and bred the females with the Ancient. Corinne Bishop was one of the rescued and wants to go home to her Detroit Darkhaven. Hunter is in charge of seeing her safely home. I don't want to give away the book. but needless to say, they go on a quest to find people working with Dragos. Everytime you finally get into the story, it would jump back to stupid Chase, who is getting closer and closer to Bloodlust.

I think in this story that Lara Adrian spends so much time setting up the next book for Chase's story that Hunter and Corinne's story got the shaft.

Let me start with what I love about this book. I loved the 1st half. The writing, the premise, and the plot twists alone, were written superbly. This one has alot of suspense, a trade mark to the Breed novels. I love that I got to touch base with all of the Warriors & their mates. U can't help but to care about them all and just because their books ended doesn't mean they are no longer important to us readers.

Hunter, of course! What is not to love about this strong, silent "Hero" Even though we only met him 4 books prior, he was immediately intriguing to me. I wanted to know this guy's story. I felt very protective of him. Even though he had yet to show us if he would be an ally or enemy to the Order. All I knew was that I wanted Hunter to know some of the beauty this world has to offer. Knowing where he came from, his very existence in the only world he knew & what he endured was just heartbreaking.

I do like that we get a more than brief preview of our Beloved Chase as well. I do think that he was just as front and center as Hunter was & was sort of approaching that thin line of taking the spot light, but not quite crossing it. Thank Goodness! Cuz this is Hunter's story and we'll have Chase soon enough. But it is a good set up for his book next year..

Now with all this, the reason why I give this one a 3 and half star rating is due to Corinne & Hunter's chemistry or lack there of. I did not care for her even when we got her back story from Brock in his book. I was a little worried when it was revealed that she would be Hunter's love interest. But I took it in stride hoping to be pleasantly surprised. NO such luck. I'm sorry 2 say. This pairing left much to be desired.

The intensity that you felt with the other mates was not even present with these two.

Since, most of the people here have already given a summary of the book then I will just skip that and get right to what I thought about it.

I have read all of the Midnight Breed books, and have loved each and everyone. However, I did not love and barely liked this one at all. When Humter was first introduced into the series he was fascinating, exciting, and different. My expectations for his book I don't believe were too high but I expected much better than this. THe story was rushed and boring at many times. There were too many storylines going on in addition to Hunter and Corrine's. I understand the reasoning and need for the continuation of Dragos, but between that, Hunter and COrinne, and Sterling Chase, it was way too much at once. More attention should've been given to the main characters, Hunter and Corinne, since it was their book. Some of Chase's story could've waited until his book. Hunter really seemed like the subplot in this or even just background. I like fantasy and romance but none was really here. It's a paranormal romance book, I want hot steamy sex in it just like the last ones, I mean come one what happened here? Hunter deserved better, really.
