Darker After Midnight- Lara Adrian (book 10)

In the dark of night, a blood war escalates within the hidden world of the Breed. After existing in secret for many long centuries, maintaining a fragile peace with the humans who walk beside them unaware, a single act of retaliation has put the entire 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 at the center of the conflict, before his push for domination can explode into catastrophe.     
At the center of the Order’s quest is Sterling Chase, once a morally rigid enforcer of Breed law, now a warrior fallen from grace, whose biggest battle is the one he wages against his own savage nature. With addiction beckoning him toward eternal darkness, Chase’s path to redemption has never seemed more out of reach--until he finds himself drawn to a beautiful young woman who may be something much more than she seems . . .
Oh, how I love this series, I mean come on 10 books into the series and still it is going strong. The story never gets old or repetitive and her writing is absolutely awesome. This book continues with Sterling Chase, who we met several books back. He is an ex-agent but now is part of the Order. Chase has been on the verge of Bloodlust for over six years and he is at the end of his rope, barely hanging on. With Dragos getting bolder with each day that passes the Order has to step up their pace on catching him. In the last book Chase tried to kill Dragos who is pretending to be human and when that goes wrong he is taken into police custody. Dragos is right on top of the Order's home so they have to find somewhere new to live. Tavia, who is a Senator's assistant, the senator who Dragos has in his pocket is called to the police station to pick Chase out of a line-up. He goes crazy and escapes police custody, once free he kidnaps Tavia so he can explain everything to her. Boy is he in for a surprise when he finds out what Tavia really is.
The book is fast paced, action filled, romantic and heartbreaking all at the same time. I cried at the end and can't wait for the next book.
