KLB Virtual Journey: Deeper Than Midnight by Lara Adrian Review and Giveaway


Title: Deeper Than Midnight
Series: Midnight Breed, Book 9
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Author: Lara Adrian
Pub: June 28, 2011; Dell
Format: Mass Market Paperback, 387 pages

At eighteen, Corinne Bishop was a beautiful, spirited young woman living a life of privilege as the adopted daughter of a wealthy family. Her world changed in an instant when she was stolen away and held prisoner by the malevolent vampire Dragos. After many years of captivity and torment, Corinne is rescued by the Order, a cadre of vampire warriors embroiled in a war against Dragos and his followers. Her innocence taken, Corinne has lost a piece of her heart as well--the one thing that gave her hope during her imprisonment, and the only thing that matters to her now that she is free. 

Assigned to safeguard Corinne on her trip home is a formidable golden-eyed Breed male called Hunter. Once Dragos's most deadly assassin, Hunter now works for the Order, and he's hell-bent on making Dragos pay for his manifold sins. Bonded to Corinne by their mutual desire, Hunter will have to decide how far he'll go to end Drago's reign of evil--even if carrying out his mission means shattering Corinne's tender heart.

Hunter's story! FINALLY!! From the moment Hunter joined The Order, I lusted after his book. I wanted to know more about his background and what really made him tick! Deeper Than Midnight lays it all out and I was flat out stunned!

Lara Adrian has done a wonderful job with creating a rich and multi-layered story with the Midnight Breed series. In Deeper Than Midnight, we finally get a real look inside the horror that Dragos has created in his pursuit of world domination and the destruction of The Order.

Corinne was Dragos' captive for over 13 years and after being rescued by The Order, she longs to be reunited with her family.  From their first meeting, Hunter is fascinated by Corinne, not by just her beauty, but by the prophesy that was shared with him not long before that involved Corinne.  He volunteers to return her home to her family safely but that trip is cut short after a discovery is made that shatters Corinne's world and ultimately sends them both on the run.

The romance between Corinne and Hunter  is ..... different. They're both "damaged" having been either exposed to or products of Dragos' madness.  Their attraction builds slowly in the beginning. Hunter is hesitant because emotions/feelings are new to him; Corinne is hesitant because after so many years of torture and pain she never expected to have an opportunity to care for anyone. Throw in a lot of danger and neck-snapping and you've got the perfect mix for romance.

In perfect Adrian form, there are several continued subplots in Deeper Than Midnight. Chase aka Harvard has officially gone off the deep end.  There's a scene between Chase and Elise that truly made my jaw drop! There's also the continued fight between The Order and Dragos.  Things truly come to a head between the two and the members of the Order are forced to decide -- "Fight or Flight."  And it makes for a totally nail biting ending.
