From the Back Cover:
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 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.

Shonna's review: Despite the years, Mira still carries around the pain of the one male breed that took her love with his death. The grief that claws at her continually rips holes in her heart that never heal, while continually pounding the knowledge that she will never again hold him in her arms. Letting sorrow cloud her judgment she is pulled from her squad to escort a human scientist to the upcoming peace conference. Yet, what started out to be a simple babysitting job quickly spiraled into revealing an evil operation that could change the future of the entire world as we know it.
Leader of a small rebel enemy group, Bowman, once known as Kellan, stays under the radar. Walking along the edge of a sword, his actions attempt to only keep balance. Seeking to intercept and defuse before it is to late, his plans take a nose dive when beautiful Mira becomes tangled in one of his missions. Now a past that haunts his heart stands before him. Unable to turn away he faces what he knows fate has revealed and excepts this to be his end.
My thoughts:
Loving the MIDNIGHT BREED SERIES, I was very anxious to see where the next installment would lead us and what direction the very talented, Lara Adrian planned to take us. Without a doubt, she did NOT disappoint! This jump is a fantastic transition that smoothly glides forward with a wide open field of new adventures in front of us yet to be seen. With so many new open doors brought to us in EDGE OF DAWN, I am extremely excited to continue on with many more reads to come. The so very realistic characters and a passionate, tears blurring your eyes love story of betrayal that Adrian delivers while mingling action, kick-ass dangerous situations have your knuckles turning white as you grip your book.

A favorite moment:
“You stayed,” he murmured, mouth moving over the side of her neck, where her pulse throbbed in time with his.
Her softly whispered answer sifted into his hair where her lips rested against the top of his head. “You didn’t let go.”
I get goose-bumps just thinking about some of my favorite parts,.... and no, I’m not telling.
I don’t want to spoil one moment of this amazing tale that Adrian has given us. This is a MUST READ NOW that will harness all of your waking moments until you know how it ends.
My rating: 5
