Corinne does come off as more 'damsel-in-distress' than pretty much any other Breedmate has before--at least the ones associated with the Order. But after being kidnapped as a teenager, raped and tortured, and losing her son, it's probably to be expected. And all she's been through probably also helps to explain why she doesn't think she can ask the Order for help--even though she's wrong. I do like getting to see what shaped Hunter into who he is and what happens when he and Corinne inevitably hook up.
Not my favorite book in the series, but is still a key element of the overall plot flow even in the face of any deficiencies in plot or characters.
Hunter is a ruthless killer, bred for no other reason and with no emotion. Corinne brings Hunter's emotions to the surface and he falls in love without a fight. He deserves to down with dignity. He was a complete hard a-s and in a blink of an eye, he's mush....kind of unbelievable for me.
Then we have the Breed leader - Lucan. He's really acting like a wuss - unlike the character I've known and loved for 8 books.
Chase is more involved in book 9 even though this is supposed to be Hunter's book. We watch Chase throw away his life, family and friends and then...is he faithful to the Breed? is he fallen? Back and forth we go like a ping pong ball.
All in all - if you're new to the Breed, do NOT start with this book. Start at the beginning but beware - once you get involved in any series it's hard, really hard, to watch new installments come out and not grab them. I'm not sure if it's loyalty to the characters (author) or commitment to the story (even when they're bad). Rest assured, in my opinion, as series go on and on the story lines start to disappear. I was disappointed in this book but will grab book 10 anyway.
In the present, Dragos imprisoned him and forced him to copulate with Breedmates. The Children of that union were Gen X warriors, who were more powerful than most of the breed. Dragos puts a slave collar on these children as he trains them to be amoral ruthless killers. Dragos' enemy The Order liberates one of his killers Hunter who vows to kill his vicious jailer and his psychopathic brothers. The Order raid a compound and free Corrine Bishop held prisoner by their evil adversary for decades. When she and Hunter meet, there is an instant attraction, but neither can accept the soft feelings; he never knew love only hate and she had love tortured out of her. While fleeing from Dragos' henchmen, Corrine resolutely wants to find her son Nathan, but conceals this from her escort until they make love. Hunter believes Corrine is setting herself up for heartbreak and perhaps death because like him her son is a trained ruthless killer. She persuades him they should try.
The ninth Midnight Breed romantic fantasy is a fantastic entry that is as great as its predecessors (see Taken by Midnight). The story is told from multiple viewpoints; readers will find especially refreshing and fascinating understanding how a breed feels when he enters the Bloodlust stage before he turns into a mindless Rogue who cares only about drinking human blood. The Adrian vampire mythos expands as series fans will appreciate the meaning of Home.
