I generally enjoyed the Gideon and Savannah novella. This was self-published by Lara Adrian and you can tell as there are a number of minor copy editing mistakes and one flat out continuity error (bus or train?) but those aren't too distracting. Gideon has always been a favorite character of mine and I enjoyed seeing how he met Savannah, the reasons why he no longer goes out on missions with the Order, and why he wears glasses (since being Breed, you wouldn't think he would need them). The overall story was a pretty good one and I liked Savannah a lot, as she is a young, intelligent, college freshmen when she gets pulled into the Breed world when her roommate disappears. The 1970's references are kind of fun (though the "hacking" references seemed out of place). SOMEWHAT SPOILERY COMMENT FOLLOWS: Lara Adrian does fall back on her typical plot device of the Breed Hero failing to tell the truth up front to his future Breedmate, which in turn gets him into loads of trouble with said Breedmate who then, of course, flees! I also didn't think that the technologically brilliant, geeky Gideon that we all know fit very well with the centuries old warrior history Lara Adrian gave him. The ending was also tied up much too rapidly and ended rather abruptly. It was still pretty fun and an improvement over the dreadful Danika novella of a year or so ago.
The rest of the companion guide is fluffy fun, though I'm not such a huge fan that I could read through every single one of the many trivia questions at the end. From Lara Adrian's comments, there will be another 7 books and a couple of novellas before she ends the series. The next book is Nathan's and will be out in February 2014. Regarding past books, the most interesting information was that Jenna is not turning into one of the Breed. She is a human with supernatural powers and more will be revealed down the road, along with the reason that the Ancient asked her to choose (life or death). The other (kind of) shocker was that Lara Adrian came up with the Atlantean ancestry of the Breedmates and wrote that into the series when a fan asked her a question about it at a live Q & A session and she didn't have an answer. I'd always thought that the Atlantis connection was kind of cheesy and it seemed kind of forced and tacked on, and that's 'cause it was.
So, buy it if you are a big Midnight Breed fan, want to read about Gideon and Savannah, and have simply got to know what each and every Breed warrior's eye and hair color is. Otherwise, you probably can skip it.
Ms Adrian creates an entire race of beings that has managed to stay hidden from humans for centuries. Reading this Companion's like reading an anthropological thesis on the Breed and Breedmate. The sheer amount of details provided on this race of vampires convinces me they're out there and Ms Adrian has had the astonishing good fortune of being allowed into their society and report on it. (It's a joke guys, I don't really believe this........maybe)
As an extra bonus we finally find out how Gideon and Savannah met. Ever wonder why Gideon doesn't fight with the other members of the Order? All is explained in the Novella: A TOUCH OF MIDNIGHT. The back story on Gideon is heartrending but it's nice to have that back story. Don't know why but I had Gideon pictured in my mind as a real nerd. Not just a computer nerd....he just always seemed to be less than the other members of the Order to me. WOW! Not after reading his and Savannah's story. He just fought his way to a fav of mine.
Savannah's life story, while not a bed of roses is not unheard of in this day and age, makes her feel like an average college student. OK, a brilliant college student with psychometric abilities. Was surprised at how young she was when her and Gideon met. Young in years with an old soul. Savannah stumbles onto an old enemy of Gideon when she discovers an ancient sword. An enemy Gideon didn't even realize he had. Oh, he knows about the sword just not the true roll the sword played in the tragedy that involved his family. When Gideon's foe targets Savannah it becomes a race for Gideon to save Savannah's life. Course there's plenty of Savannah saving Gideon going on too. Loved this novella!
THE MIDNIGHT BREED SERIES COMPANION will keep the true fan enthralled for days. Gonna want to keep it handy in-case you need reminded of who is who, or who did what while you are reading through the series and any future books in the series. And future books are promised!
This book is more than a winner, it's a must have if you are into the series. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!
