“I know what kind of man you are, Cain Hunter.”
We met Cain in the Born of Darkness

Lara worked her magic once again! I'm currently at work looking like a zombie due to lack of sleep, I just couldn't put it down!
I absoluting LOVED HoD, Cain was exactly as I envisioned him. He has the tough ass Hunter exterior but a total softy in the middle **dreamy sigh**.

I received this book for free from Author in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
I have such bad memory at times that when I started reading this book I couldn't really remember much about the previous book in this spin off series. What's great about Lara Adrian's writing is that she can deliver a fully standalone story even as it's part of a much bigger world. So if you are just jumping into this series, feel free to do that ...more
A fast-moving, exciting, suspenseful and romantic PNR read, I loved this one!
This is the second book in the Hunter Legacy series, but it can easily be read as a standalone. Cain was introduced in the first book of this series, Born of Darkness, but I honestly could not remember him at all, and I was able to pick up this story and get completely caught up in all of the action and excitement with no problems at all.
Cain is a member of the Breed, a vampire known as a Hunter. Cruelly bred ...more

I didn’t feel a connection between the two main characters. It felt really off to me.
Cain is a great hero. Marina his perfect mate. I think the Hunter series is off to a great start.
I received an ARC for my honest review.
I received this book for free from Tantor Audio in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.The Hour of Darkness by Lara Adrian is book two in the Hunter Legacy series. Each of these hunters from the program disbanded in the Midnight Breed series were left to strike out on their own to live their lives in the world. This is difficult for those hunters as they were raised all their lives until 20 years ago to be assassins.
Cain was in b
It had some exciting moments and twists for sure but there was one thing lacking; captivating characters.
Both main characters felt a little bit flat in my opinion. Cain was talking about his lack of honor or "if he were a better man..." for the most part of his book. Marina had two great scenes and everything else was just plain even though she had such a promising personality.
New secondary characters in this book are; Bram, Lana, Raze, ...more
Cain played a great part in the previous book, but this story delves deeper into his personalty and the reasons why he leads his chosen lifestyle.
Marina was raised in a Russian mafia environment. This is the only life that she has ever known. Her uncle, a prominent figure in the Bratva is her only family.
Marina has been trying to convince her uncle to change their lifestyle, and when he sends her on a ...more
Lara Adrian knows what she's doing when it comes to damaged vampires and the women who help them overcome.
I'm going to try to write this without any spoilers, so please bear with me.
Cain is as dangerous as the rest of the Hunter vampire's. He makes his money doing what he does best. Being what he was made to be.
He's also got secrets. Secrets that he's allowed to come between him and the o ...more
I loved this book plain and simple. It had everything I wanted and was for me unputdownable. I don’t hide my love for this author and this is another example of why.
Going into this book, I was already drawn to the hero Cain and with every action, I f ...more
