After writing ten Midnight Breed novels, author Lara Adrian seemed to be done with the series, but, fortunately for fans, she decided to continue it in an eleventh book titled Edge of Dawn. In this novel, the action takes place twenty years after the end of the tenth book, but the futuristic world that Adrian has created is still the same, consisting of vampires and humans living side by side in a tenuous peace maintained by the Breed Warriors. The heroine is the lovely Mira who has the Sight and can show you any moment in time, good or bad. Mira is also a Breed Warrior and she's never gotten over losing Kellan, her best friend and lover who was also part of the Breed but was killed in a mission eight years ago.

After committing an infraction, Mira is temporarily demoted from her status as Captain of her team and is sent to escort a scientist named Ackmeyer safely from Boston to D. C. However, she and Ackmeyer are kidnapped by a group of rebels who believe in vigilante justice, and their leader is none other than Kellan himself. Thus reunited, Mira and Kellan can't stay away from each other, but they have to work out their issues, including an explanation on Kellan's part as to why he has let Mira believe he was dead for so many years. In addition to the romance, the two protagonists must fight a plot to steal a powerful weapon with great destructive power.

This is a sexy, action-packed read with an interesting paranormal element. It's always fun to read a book where the focus is not just on the heroine's finding true love but also on her personal growth and the development of her powers. Mira manages to defeat the bad guys without sacrificing her need for a fulfilling relationship.

Lara Adrian is the pseudonym of writer Tina St. John who quit her career in corporate administration to take up writing full time. At first, she wrote historical romances under her real name but then branched out into paranormal romance with the Midnight Breed series which has frequently been on the New York Times bestseller list. She can trace her ancestry back to the Mayflower and to the court of King Henry VIII and currently lives in coastal New England with her husband.

In this pulse-pounding and thrillingly sensual novel, New York Times bestselling author Lara Adrian returns to the mesmerizing world of the Midnight Breed, following new characters into a dark future where an uneasy peace can unravel into war—and a great betrayal can mask an all-consuming love.

Twenty years after the terror of First Dawn—when mankind learned that vampires lived secretly among them—the threat of violence reigns as the two species struggle to coexist. The only group preserving the fragile harmony is the Order, an elite cadre of Breed warriors dedicated to protecting humans and vampires alike. And in this precarious world of torn loyalties and shattered trust, Mira, a fiery squad captain, finds that every fight bears an intensely personal cost.

Raised among the Order, Mira has always believed in the warrior's code of swif—-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. 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.
