The best of the series yet!
Raised among the Order, Mira has always believed in the warrior’s code of swift—and even lethal—justice. But the one thing she desires more than the Order’s hard-won acceptance is Kellan Archer, a sexy but troubled Breed fighter. In love with him since childhood, Mira once broke through his tough exterior during an unexpected night of rapture, but the next day he mysteriously disappeared, never to return.
Kellan didn’t think he would ever see Mira again—or have to confront the truth of why he left. After abandoning the Order years ago, he now leads a band of human rebels intent on carrying out their own vigilante rule of law. Yet a high-profile kidnapping assignment brings him face-to-face with the past he sought to avoid, and the striking woman he has tried desperately to forget. And as tensions mount and the risk of bloodshed grows, Kellan and Mira must take sides—between the competing missions that dominate their lives, and the electrifying passion that claims their hearts.
REVIEW: Oh…my…God! I have read every single book in this series and I do have to say, this one is by far my favorite.
While I was a bit apprehensive about seeing Mira as a grown woman, seeing in the last book she was still a little girl, I do think Ms. Adrian did a phenominal job in explaining the jump in time. The building of feelings between these characters was very believable and the angst behind why they weren’t together was top notch.
The plot kept you engaged and the ending about tore my heart in half until Ms. Adrian managed to make it all better. I really don’t think I can praise this book enough, so instead I’ll summarize the entire thing with a few choice words. Edge of Dawn is an engaging and raw masterpiece that will have you both on the edge of your seat while reading and flaming the heat of desire from your face as you go.
Ms. Adrian has done it again and if I could I’d give six stars for a FANTASTIC read.

Focusing on this book alone the romance was not satisfying either. Despite us being told repeatedly that Mira and Kellan have always been drawn together we really never get to feel that develop. When we last left them they were children and when this book begins they have been separated for 8 years. Therefore the attraction felt forced and left me somewhat cold. We are told that Mira has become a fierce warrior and yet she seems rather weak to me throughout the book. Kellan is presented as being noble and aloof but instead seems bumbling and inept. Again, being a bridge book the romance was an afterthought with the primary goal being to take us from the series we have known into a new one.
Despite some of the problems and drawbacks I still enjoyed reading the book and when the next in the series comes out I will definitely read it. But I think Ms. Adrian is going to have to choose which set of Breed she is going with or try to mix them together better. In this book the older generation seemed staid and dull and the new ones were brash and unappealing. As an example, Lucan needs to get back to being a bad ass instead of a stiffling, over protective father.
If you liked the earlier books in this series you will probably enjoy this one as well. Just not one of my favorites but I have high hopes for future installments.

Could have been shorter
OMG!!! This book would have been a novella if Laura Adrian would have eliminated all of the reiteration. Ok, we get it! The explosion and pivotal moment that changed everything happened eight years ago. By page 205 it is well established which breedmate belongs to which breed and who their offspring are. Add to that Ms. Adrian's desparate need for a thesaurus so she can discover any other word to replace otherworldly would not be remiss.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

At this stage in the series Ms. Adrian could have taken the years of writing experience and the time it has taken her to create the world of Midnight Breed to paint a more indepth and better drawn story. Unfortunately, this installment falls painfully flat, given the impression of a novice attempt at writing. I'm bored and disappointed.
