- KurzbeschreibungThe climactic novel in the bestselling Midnight Breed series, of which BookPage raves: "If you like romance combined with heart-stopping paranormal suspense, you're going to love this book."<br>In the dark of night, a blood war escalates within the hidden world of the Breed. After maintaining a fragile peace with the humans who walk beside them unaware, a single act of retaliation has put the vampire nation at risk of discovery. It falls to the Order-a cadre of Breed warriors pledged to protect their own and humankind alike-to stop Dragos, the power-mad vampire, before his push for domination explodes into catastrophe.<br>At the center of the Order's quest is Sterling Chase, whose biggest battle is the one he wages against his own savage nature. But when his eyes meet those of Tavia Fairchild, Chase finds himself drawn to the woman-and convinced she is something much more than she seems. And while everything logical warns Tavia against getting close to Chase, she cannot deny that he stirs something ravenous within her. As the Order's enemy mobilizes for the battle of the ages, Chase and Tavia are thrust into the heart of the violence. With time running out, they must find a way to defeat Dragos once and for all-or die trying.<br>"Stunning . . . filled with passion, treachery, and danger . . . Adrian pulls out all the stops."- RT Book Reviews

- Leseprobechapter one<br>"The charges are set, Lucan. Detonators are ready whenever you say the word. On your go, it all ends right here."<br>Lucan Thorne stood silent in the dusk- filled, snow- covered yard of the Boston estate that had long served as a base of operations for himself and his small cadre of brothers in arms. For more than a hundred years, on countless patrols, they rode out from this very spot to guard the night, maintaining a fragile peace between the unwitting humans who owned the daytime hours and the predators who moved among them secretly, sometimes lethally, in the dark.<br>Lucan and his warriors of the Order dealt in swift, deadly justice and had never known the taste of defeat.<br>Tonight it was bitter on his tongue.<br>"Dragos will pay for this," he growled around the emerging points of his fangs.<br>Lucan's vision burned amber as he stared across the expansive lawn at the pale limestone facade of the Gothic mansion. A chaos of tire tracks scarred the grounds from the police chase that had crashed the compound's tall iron gates that morning and come to a bullet- riddled halt right at the Order's front door. Blood stained the snow where law enforcement gunfire had mowed down three terrorists who'd bombed Boston's United Nations building then fled the scene with a dozen cops and every news station in the area in close pursuit.<br>All of it- from the attack on a human government facility, to the media- covered police chase of the suspects onto the compound's secured grounds- had been orchestrated by the Order's chief adversary, a power- mad vampire called Dragos.<br>He wasn't the first of the Breed to dream of a world where human kind lived to serve and served in fear. But where others before him with less commitment had failed, Dragos had demonstrated astonishing patience and initiative. He'd been carefully sowing the seeds of his rebellion for most of his long life, secretly cultivating followers within the Breed and making Minions of any humans he felt could help carry out his twisted goals.<br>For the past year and a half, since their discovery of Dragos's plans, Lucan and his brethren had kept him on the run. They had succeeded in driving him back, thwarting his every move and disrupting his operation.<br>Until today.<br>Today it was the Order pushed back and on the run, and Lucan didn't like it one damn bit.<br>"What's the ETA at the temporary headquarters?"<br>The question was aimed toward Gideon, one of the two warriors who'd remained behind with Lucan to wrap things up in Boston while the rest of the compound went ahead to an emergency safe house in northern Maine
