"Thank you for the excitement--and for the interest in CLAIMED IN SHADOWS! I'm writing Aric's book now, but unfortunately it's taking me a bit longer than I anticipated. This new novella, MIDNIGHT UNLEASHED, was scheduled a long time ago, before I knew I'd be coming in late on CLAIMED, so that's why the reading sequence is not quite right. I'm sorry for the wait on Aric's book, but it most certainly is coming! I've got my fingers crossed for a November release and will keep you all posted. "<3(less)

Jessica's Totally Over The Top Book Obsession
Life at my house has been super crazy the last few days, and I'm feeling really lazy right now so I am just gonna keep this short and sweet. Claimed in the Shadows was a pretty good read. Not as good as some of the others but still very enjoyable. I liked Aric a lot but at first he came off immature. I liked Kaya and I enjoyed the plot. I felt really bad for Rafe. I can't wait for his book. Niko and Renata had their son Yay! The ending felt super rushed. Still love this series.

This is Aric’s story, son of Chase and Tavia. Lucan sent Aric to Montreal (Nikolai and Renata’s turf and it was really good to hear about them and also Mira and Kellan) for his new mission. Something that he’d been waiting for so long to prove himself. But in this mission he’s not alone. He has a partner, Kaya! Their mission is verifying the Intel with getting inside the target’s head, but everything doesn’t go well! Kaya had a tough childhood, she has a secret but she can’t tell

There's passion,suspense and a ultimate betrayal,not only are the breed warrior's and their breed mates at war with opus ,but there's a bigger threat closer to home that could destroy the breed and all they love. But this is also Aric and kaya's story and it's full of passion and love and great sex!!! No one does it better then a breed warrior and especially a hot sexy one like Aric ...more

4.5 Kickass Breedmate Stars!!

Kaya is a Breedmate and a recruit for The Order, Kaya is eager to prove herself and to move up the ranks like her friend and mentor Mira. On Kaya's first mission, she is paired with Aric Chase (Harvard’s son) to attend a high-profile wedding and find out if the groom has connections with Opus Nostrum. For Aric, this mission is a slight detour, he wants to return to Washington, D.C. where he has his future all mapped out, a future that does not include the beautiful

“This detour was only supposed to be temporary. I never dreamed I’d find forever here.”

4.5 stars!

I have been so freaking excited for this book, and the moment the ARC dropped into my kindle I dropped everything to read it and I finished it one sitting, unable to put it down. It’s a fast-paced, action-packed, exciting, intriguing, fun, sexy and romantic addition to the Midnight Breed series, and I loved it!

This is book 15 in the series, and while you’ll get more enjoyment out of it if you’re a

This was a very interesting installment. It felt like a family reunion of sorts. Every past couple from the series was either present or was discussed. It was a bit too much considering how many warriors and breed mates that included.

I didn't love or relate to the characters as well as I have in the past. But I also understand I can't love Every couple in a series as long as the Midnight Breed series.

My major complaint would be that the ending felt rushed. The heroine had a secret and told lies

I'm a huge fan of the Midnight Breed, it's been my favourite PNR series for a long time now and in my opinion Lara Adrian's books just keep getting better and better. The last few novellas have been great but they were about some of the European Order members so this is our first chance to catch up with the core order members in a while. I hadn't actually realised how much I missed them until I started reading this but it was absolutely wonderful to see so many old familiar faces and I'm loving ...more

Aric Chase has made my day, what a character - a hot, strong warrior that is everything a Breed male should be.... and a Daywalker! Aric and Kaya's story is amazing, quick off the mark and one that kept me captivated.

The Breed have always been a firm favourite, some more than others and this book is definitely one of those books where the character climbs to the top of the favoured list!

Loved this story, loved the fast pace... didn't see one or two of those twists but I can definitely

Claimed in Shadows is a great addition to the Midnight Breed series. I loved re visiting the First Generation of Breed Warriors and there Breedmates. This is Aric Chase's story. Son of our beloved Sterling Chase aka Harvard and his beautiful Breedmate Tavia. I really enjoyed the bits with Pregnant Ranata and Nikolai and Mira there adopted daughter and her Breed Warrior. It was great fun to catch up with old characters that feel like friends. I have been reading Midnight Breed series since 2007 ...more

Aric Chase is trained and ready to finally take up his own position within the Order. As the day-walker son of two of the most formidable Breed, he is nearly royalty within the Order and Breed society. But he works hard and is ready to prove himself when his special gifts are needed for a covert mission in Montreal.
Meanwhile, Kaya was raised by an abusive mother and in poverty. She never understood what family could be like until she became a trainee of the Order and friends with Mira. Now Kaya

I love this series! When i was introduced to adult PNRs (what feels like a million years ago!), this was one of the first three series i'd started with and it still has not gotten old for me! You would think that after this many books in a series, it would start getting repetitive and boring but Lara Adrian has done a great job of keeping everything fresh and still exciting! This book was no different...a lot of action, suspense, romance and angst..Loved!!
2.5 Stars

Meh... This was just ok. This is turning into a 'Lite' version of the series beginning. It was a pleasant read, sort of cheesy at times. I guess the author is running out of steam on this. Hopefully the next book will be better.

I was kind of hoping for Dare's story first. I feel like he has a bit of a rebellious spirit and is shown to already have a story on the rise, whereas I haven't gotten much of a feel for Aric just yet, outside of being protective of his sister (even though they've had little interaction in the books).

But I am still happy to be getting another MB book.

For me, this is the best second generation Midnight Breed novel, and that's saying a lot because my interest in this series had been waning for years now. (The last MB novel that I really enjoyed was Chase and Tavia's story, and that was released 6 years ago.)

"Claimed in Shadows" was far from perfect. I did have issues like the predictable "plot twist", lack of development in the romance aspect, and the redundancy of Kaya's trust issues, Actually, aside from the trust

Claimed in Shadows is book 15 in the Midnight Breed series by Lara Adrian. The timeline continues on directly after Defy The Dawn. The Opus Nostrum storyline had Aric and Rafe going after a woman suspected of being part of the group. Claimed In Shadows picks up with those two warriors on their way to Montreal before heading back to DC.

The threat to the Breed has really increased. I'm really scared for them all when we see what they are facing. Opus Nostrum needs to be stopped and soon. I just

Contains spoilers!

I like that this series is still ongoing, but I think the quality of main characters has declined with the onset of the timeskip to the next generation. Part of the appeal of the first 10 books was that the male protagonists all mostly had tragic or interesting backstories that they worked through. Their children however have never had to really struggle with anything, which makes it kinda hard to like or sympathize with them. They're all just so eager to go off to war and play

A French-Canadian Breedmate and a Breed Warrior face secrets and danger in the fifteenth book in the Midnight Breed Series.

I have been reading this series for quite some time (I may have missed one or two) and even when the novels are filled with action, treachery and danger, they are also romantic and steamy — often super-steamy. I like that Adrian decided to advance the series in time and, mostly, to the next
I've waited SO LONG for this book but now that I'm finished with it I mostly feel disappointed. Somehow I had a hard time connecting to the two MCs. I'm not even sure why. My main issue is actually how much time we spent in each one's head and how repetitive these thoughts were. I was just over it. When I was a little over the half mark I started skimming through those thoughts waiting for the action to FINALLY arrive. It was too little too late. Even the reunion of the founders of the order ...more

Aric Chase is more interested on fighting the enemies than on any romantic aspirations. He focus on being a warrior instead of a lover and dream to one day command his own team. So when his commander ask him to go on a mission in Montreal to meet a high-value target with possible ties with Opus, the terrorist organisation who's trying to eradicate the Breeds, it's his chance to prove himself. He's gonna have to team up with an other trainee from Montreal; Kaya Laurent, who can read human's mind ...more
I thought this one was one of the better ones with the kids generation, but part of that might be because we got to see quite a bit of the older generation. I loved the new baby that came and the ceremony that came with it. They all needed that bright spot among the crap they have been dealing with.

The romance between Aric and Kaya was good, even if you saw their issues coming a mile away. I felt much the same about the leak that they had, so obvious who it was, yet there were revelations I didn

Good storyline. It usually is. Aric Chase, the son of Sterling and Tavia, is a daywalker like his mother. That makes him extra beneficial in stopping the spread of the UV weapons. He falls for his partner, Kaya. She's a breedmate and has wanted nothing more than to belong to a family. That's what training with the Breed has done for her. But she has secrets. I saw it coming who the real villain is. Still enjoying the series and the continuing storyline but there's not too many more

This is my favorite of all the Midnight Breed books. With a major secret between them Aric and Kaya find love. And when the secret is revealed they find happiness. Can't wait for the next book in the series.
