Coming Soon ~ Shades of Midnight...

I still like this series even with my less than favorable response to the last book, Ashes of Midnight. I couldn't find a blurb on the author's website, found the one below on Fantastic Fiction. Releases December 29. Enjoy...

In a frozen wilderness steeped in darkness, the lines between good and evil, lover and enemy, are never black or white but drawn in Shades of Midnight.

Something inhuman is stalking the frigid Alaskan wilds, leaving unspeakable carnage in its wake. For bush pilot Alexandra Maguire, the killings stir memories of a horrific event she witnessed as a child and evoke in her the inexplicable sense of otherness she has long felt within herself but never fully understood . . . until a darkly seductive stranger with secrets of his own enters her world.

Sent from Boston on a mission to investigate the savage attacks and stop the slaughter, vampire warrior Kade has his own reasons for returning to the frigid, forbidding place of his birth. Haunted by a secret shame, Kade soon realizes the stunning truth of the threat he faces-a threat that will jeopardize the fragile bond he has formed with the courageous, determined young woman who arouses his deepest passions and most primal hungers. But in bringing Alex into his world of blood and darkness, Kade must confront both his own personal demons and the even greater evil that could destroy all he holds dear.

The Breeds are off to Alaska for this one. This is Kade's book and I'm looking forward to the different setting. It sounds like he's alone on this mission, too bad since I was hoping for more of Sterling Chase. The heroine, a bush pilot, has potential. She's got to be tough and smart to survive being a pilot in Alaska. I do like that Adrian makes the heroines part of "the team" and doesn't leave them sitting on the sidelines.


  1. *Sigh* Leslie, I'm still not sure weather I'll continue with this series or not. It's so inconsistent for me at this point.

    I might wait for your review *g* and then decide. :) That's how much I'm waffling about it. :(

  2. I just skipped the last book, but I'm all in for this one! I'm like you, SO not ready to give up on this series. In fact, don't you think the last book's poor showing might mean this book is excellent?

  3. Hils ~ totally understand. I'm hoping this next book is much better than the last - if not... IDK, it might become another library series for me.

    CJ ~ I like that logic - last book bad = next book good. LOL I hope so. :)

  4. LOL, CJ's logic makes absolute sense at this point. As long as Chase's book comes at the "=next book good" point. Right, Leslie?

  5. LOL ~ yes, Chase's book must be the "next good book". :)

  6. I have Ashes of Midnight. I started it but then it went missing. I just noticed it the other night under a chair in the living room. Must get out and read.

  7. Kristie ~ I hate when books go missing. Hope you enjoy it. :)
