All the information you never thought you needed...and then some can be found in this book. From notes on each story, Q&A's with Lara and the characters to a brand new story called A Touch of Midnight about Gideon and Savannah. It's all in here!

I have to be honest and say the only reason I read this was to read Gideon and Savannah's story. They've been there from the beginning but we've never gotten to know what happened with them. I was really happy I read it! I never really "got" either o

All the things you wanted to learn about Breeds and you were afraid to ask.

The book includes:
-The midnight series breed story world
-Glossary of terms
-Analysis of each novel (Books 1 up to 10)
-An extra novella about Gideon and Savannah (you can also find it without the extra information)
-Questions by the readers for Lara Adrian, but also fun questions for the characters
-Games and trivia for the hardcore fans

The Companion is very useful for the first 10 books of the series. For the next boo

Filled with info on all the books.....and best of all, we get the story of Gideon & Savannah.

This was a great read. Very interesting and detailed. Definitely a great reference to have if you ever forget a detail about something, whether about a minor detail about a character or a major detail about plot.

But it was Savannah and Gideon's long awaited story that made me want to read this straight away. We've read glimpses about this couple's past but they really deserved to have their story told in full and I'm so glad Lara Adrian decided to write a novella. Their story was beautiful and m
A useful reminder that helped me resume the series.

All in all I found this companion book more interesting than I thought it would be. I really liked the tone, the author not only shared facts about the series and each books but also some personal stuff without being too privy. I also liked the Q & A part(s), a bit less the trivia because it was a bit long but I did a good score (I reached the Breedmate status, lol). Concerning Gideon and Savannah's novella, I read it in 2013 (see review) an

This Companion is definitely worth reading if you love the series!

What I looked forward to most was A Touch of Midnight, the 130 pages short story of how Gideon and Savannah met. I just had to read that first and it was amazing!

I really enjoyed the rest of the Companion book as well. It was very interesting to read the author's notes about the lore, info about how each book came to be, Q&A from fans (not only to Lara Adrian but also to charachters from the books), Trivia questions about the
Loved catching up with the Breeds and learning some facts about the characters and their stories. I had wanted to read Gideon & Savannah's story for a long time and was so pleased to see that Ms Adrian had finally let us know how they met.....

If you love the Breeds then this is a brilliant addition to the series!

The Midnight Breed Series Companion contains many fun elements that will definitely appeal to fans of Lara Adrian’s Midnight Breed series.

Firstly it contains character information. I always like reading this sort of thing especially when it is about paranormal beings who are part of a ten plus book series. Not that I can’t keep everyone straight but you, of course, see more of some character than others so getting a recap on everyone of importance in th

The first time through the Midnight Breed Series, I’ll be honest, Gideon was just a fill-in character for me. Then on my re-read, I just couldn’t get enough of him. Savannah was a side character that I just didn’t notice at first, but on my re-read, I adored her! All I could think was their story that was never to be. Why? Because Ms. Adrian had moved on to the next generation…then she did it…she made me so happy! Even though their story is a novella, it is enough for me…for now.

This companion was extremely informative, loaded with information that we may not have been given yet or simply just didn't pick up in our readings, and it was interesting to read. There are character bios, glossary of terms, some insight into Lara Adrian's writing of the books and characters, Q&A (both with Lara and the characters), an extensive trivia quiz section, and then, of course, A Touch of Midnight, the novella telling the story of how tech wiz Gideon met his Breedmate Savannah.

"The Midnight Breed Series Companion" by Lara Adrian.

I really enjoyed this companion book to the Midnight Breed Series. Specially the novella "Touch of Midnight" featuring Gideon and Savannah. The novella is a prequil about how Gideon and Savannah meet and explains why Gideon doesn't fight anymore and says behind the scenes doing tech work. I just loved it!

It was also very interesting to read about how each book came to be. A little synopsis from Lara explaining each book. There also is a charac

This was a good companion book for someone who hasn't been reading the series for a few years. It's almost like a refresher course for the series.

What I particularly liked was the insight into Ms Adrian's world-building process and what an author has to go through to ensure consistency and cohesiveness of her own world. It's obviously not as easy as just sitting down and writing a book. More kudos to her for sticking to her guns to self-publish this companion book.

Another great read, even though I bought the paperback through the virtual signing I still had to order the ebook. I'm so happy I did, no way could I have waited for my favorite couple and Lara did not disappoint. I like how they came together and Gideon's talent is hella awesome, even if he never hits the field again maybe one day he'll get it back.

I’m going to put this out there - I adore the Midnight Breed series by Lara Adrian. Ms. Adrian has created a world with a unique vampire mythology filled with exciting action, intricate storylines, and passionate romance. If you haven’t started this series, I highly recommend you pick up the first book, Kiss of Midnight, and get to know

The Midnight Breed Series Companion by Lara Adrian The Midnight Breed Series Companion by Lara Adrian was very well put together and fun to read. I love this series and have read all 11 books in the first part of the story arc, so this companion really was the icing on the cake!

Included in this companion is a story every Midnight Breed fan will want to read: A Touch of Midnight, Gideon and Savannah's story! I wanted this story so much I bought the companion just to get it. I have to say though that I was pleasantly surprised at the fact that I
The Midnight Breed Series Companion is a must read for any fans of the series. If you've ever wanted to know what inspired Lara Adrian to write the series, her secret thoughts about the characters and her vision for the future of the series then you'll find all of that and more in this book. You need to be aware that the series companion does contain spoilers for the first 10 books in the series (up to and including Darker After Midnight) though so if you're not up to date then you need to read ...more

3.5 stars. There is a lot of information in this companion book to Lara Adrian's long running Midnight Breed series. A lot of it is pretty entertaining and useful. There are summaries of the world and its rituals, a summary of each of the books with Lara Adrian's comments, a glossary of terms, a character reference guide (very handy, especially if you want physical characteristics of characters, or what a specific Breed or Breedmate's "gift" is), a reader Q & A section, a kind of cute ...more

The Midnight Breed Series Companion (Volume #1) ((Midnight Breed #0.5 - Gideon and Savannah) - Lara Adrian Usually I'm not into these companion sort of books but I guess after 11 books you kind of get "mixed-up" with everyone.. who's got which special power, what was that "guy"'s woman, how someone ended up etc. So it's nice to have this compilation you can check up the details of the characters, not only the main ones but much more than that.

Ich war gespannt was mich erwarten würde und versprach mir viel davon, denn zusätzliche, interessante Informationen zu einer Reihe selbst waren bisher im deutschen Raum immer recht rar.

I think series companions are the best things an author can give us reades. (Besides their amazing stories of course!) I always enjoy reading how authors developed their series, how things happened, and how everything falls into place to give us the stories we enjoy. It also nice to have a source to go to if you forgot (heaven forbid!) a detail about one of the characters you love.

I actually didn't know what to expect when I cracked open this book. As a long time fan of the series, I like to devour anything and everything that relates to my favorite characters so I was excited to see what this book would bring. I'll admit that my biggest draw was to read the Gideon and Savannah story. Although they haven't been one of my favorite couples throughout the series, I have a special place for Gideon because he's so cool so I wanted to see how he fell in love.

But boy, was I sur

This is one of the best series companions I have come across. My one warning is that if you have not read through the series before this was published (Darker After Midnight, the 10th novel, was the last book in the series published before this companion came out) you should take the author’s spoiler warning in the Introduction of this companion seriously.

“The Glossary” and “Midnight Breed Series: The Story World” are useful to reacquaint yourself of some of the world’s specific terminology and

A must read if you are a MIDNIGHT BREED fan! This book is amazing in the details it gives. If you've not read this series would recommend you go ahead buy this book but save it to read until AFTER you have read the series. Lots of spoilers. Come-on.....if you haven't read the series what the heck are you waiting for?!?!

Ms Adrian creates an entire race of beings that has managed to stay hidden from humans for centuries. Reading this Companion's like reading an anthropological thesis on the Breed
