Veil of Midnight (Midnight Breed Series #5) by Lara Adrian

Bound by blood, addicted to danger, they'll enter the darkest—and most erotic—place of all.

A warrior trained in bullets and blades, Renata cannot be bested by any man—vampire or mortal. But her most powerful weapon is her extraordinary psychic ability—a gift both rare and deadly. Now a stranger threatens her hard-won independence—a golden-haired vampire who lures her into a realm of darkness…and pleasure beyond imagining.

A combat-loving adrenaline junkie, Nikolai dispenses his own justice to enemies of the Breed—and his latest quarry is a ruthless assassin. One woman stands in his way: the seductive, cool-as-ice bodyguard, Renata. But Renata’s powers are put to the test when a loved one, a child, is threatened and she’s forced to turn to Niko for help. As the two join forces, as desire fans the flames of a deeper hunger, Renata’s life is under siege by a man who offers the exquisite pleasure of a blood bond—and a passion that could save or doom them both forever.…

I was reluctant at first to allow myself to enjoy Lara Adrian's books because I am a die hard JR Ward fan. I was afraid that they would just be a bad imitation of books and characters that I came to know and love. However, after reading the first of Lara's books I appreciated the similarities and loved the differences even more. Lara succeeds at creating a world that sucks you in and takes you on a wild and erotic ride. I am loving Lara Adrian's books and I can truly say that I am now a fan of hers also. Veil of Midnight is my favorite of the current five. The relationship between Nikolai and Renata is hot. The way the two of them get down and dirty with one another in more ways then one keeps you turning the pages and craving more. I am eagerly awaiting the next installment, Ashes of Midnight. Much kudos to Lara Adrian who is truly an artist in her own right!

Nikolai the vampire is in Montreal searching for the Gen One vamp Sergei Yakut to warn him to be on the alert because someone is targeting the founding generation of the Ancient extraterrestrials and their families who mate and produce offspring with them. He walks into a trap sprung by some vampires and Breedmate Renata who can put him under with the power of her mind. Nikolai mentions his warning and is escorted to Sergei¿s compound for a discussion.

While there, Renata who trusts no one begins to think Nikolai is a good individual. Nikolai discovers that Sergei has hunts with humans as the prey; upset he walks out in disgust. He returns once he calms down, but Renata knocks him out as she believes he killed Sergei; unaware that his treacherous son committed fratricide. When the traitor sells the child Mira, who Renata loves like a daughter, she escapes the compound and rescues Nikolai. Their feelings blossom until they become blood bonded. However the Order that protects the vampire nation has assigned Nikolai with a mission that conflicts with Renata¿s plans to rescue Mira.

Once again Lara Adrian writes a gripping character driven romantic urban fantasy that leaves readers believing vampires exist while hiding in plain sight. Characters from the previous books in the "Midnight¿ series (see KISS OF MIDNIGHT, MIDNIGHT RISING, and MIDNIGHT AWAKENING) appear while a new surprising vampire joins the Order which is now dedicated destroying the Ancient and Dragos. Nikolai is stunned by his feelings for Renata, but less shocked than she is as she always believed she would be an untouchable loner. His mission leaves his soul divided between loyalty to his beloved and to the Order. Readers will relish the lifting of the VEIL OF MIDNIGHT while looking forward to more vampiric escapades in the Adrian universe.

Nikolai goes to Montreal to warn Sergei Yakut of the current threat to Gen One Breed males and walks into a nightmare. Soon his own life is at risk and he must rely on the help of Yakut's beautiful guard, Renata, to help him out of a bad situation. Contrary to his nature, he finds himself drawn to Renata in a way he's never experienced. At the same time, he must help Renata rescue the young oracle named Mira from her captors. This story has just about everything to capture your imagination and attention. Nikolai has always been one of the more intriguing Warriors of the Order and pairing him with Renata, a formidable Breedmate, is brilliant. Her psychic abilities are extraordinary and a perfect compliment to this Breed male. The villains are absolutely despicable and brutal. There are twists and turns throughout the entire story and I didn't want to blink in fear of missing something. Just about every word matters. This may just be my most favorite in the series to date. Renata has hard and soft sides that makes her very interesting. She leveled Nikolai at their first meeting but then she is the maternal, nurturing figure for little Mira. Sergei may be a Gen One Breed male but he's difficult to respect. And, we are introduced to the Hunter, one of Dragos' Gen One creations. I've always been drawn to Nikolai and finally got the opportunity to really experience him in action. Set aside time to read as much of this book as you can in few sittings because you will not want to set it aside. And, the ending will have you wanting to reach for the next installment.

I'm currently reading the JR Ward DBD series and the next book doesn't come out until March 2012 (Lover Reborn). SO I wanted to "sink my teeth" into something new until the next DBD was released, though I didn't think I would find something I'd enjoy as much as I have BDB. I came across the Midnight Breed Series in my search and in reading the reviews and seeing so many DBD fans enjoying this series, I figured I'd give it a try. BOY was I glad I did!!!! I just finished Midnight Rising (book 4) and I can't wait to start Veil of Midnight, the series is awesome. I can't put the books down, they grab me right from the beginning. I recommend this book to all you hopeless romantic vampire fans, the books has love, war, passion, mystery, and more. The Midnight Breed Series is right up there next to my BDB warriors. Truly a great series, a must read in my opinion. Hope you pick it up, I'm sure you'll enjoy it.

The text is unreadable in ebook format because not all the characters converted properly when the text was converted to electronic format. And the worst part is, Barnes & Noble won't give you a refund for the ebook even when the book is unreadable. Luckily I haven't had my Nook for more than 14 days and can return it for a refund. It's a waste to pay that much money for an ebook reader and then have to pay for books you can't even read.

I have no idea if the hard/soft cover version as as many typos as the ebook one I'm reading does. Seriously should have checked it better before releasing it on ebook. Examples are several "the" words replaced with "die". "could" is in there as "gould" several times over. It's bad enough to be distracting.

Even though it's a shorter book, it's still very interesting especially because the woman character is totally different than any of the others in the first four books. She's unexpected & she has a little surprise with her. Lara's writing about vampires is just as different as Stephenie Meyer. One person once said that Stephenie's vampires are bologna because they sparkle in the sun. Well Lara's vampires are pretty different from the norm too. (OK they don't sparkle - sun does kill them & they do need to drink blodd from humans.) But Lara's & Stephenie's vampires aren't ugly monsters without a sense of right & wrong. I love these two women - they took a old horror character and added a true fanasty spin on them. Isn't that what fiction is supposed to be about? - Living a life and meeting intersting beings who shouldn't exist. I love the men of Midnight Breed & their mates.

Hard shell with a soft center, honor, love. That's Renata. She is the perfect mate for Nikolai. Great addition to the series. We learned more about the evil that the Order is pledged to eradicate. Now I wonder what the future holds for Hunter and for Mira.

Seriously, do we have to pay so much? If you buy ten of these books, you are paying approximately $80. Come on, for such popular books you'd think author could give buyers a break!!! I'm done--all tapped out!!!!!!

I really really enjoyed this book . I had a really hard time putting it down every time I was needing to. I think the reason I enjoyed this book so much was I was able to see myself a lot in the role of the female main character. A great read I total recommend!!!
