Another utterly fabulous read ,I always get so excited when a new book comes out from the amazingly talented writer!!! I love visiting the world of these otherworldly vampires!!!

Rafe and Devony

Rafe is the only son of one my favourite couples in Midnight Breeds. He is the son of Dante and Tess (Kiss of Crimson). Being a Breed warrior, he does not hesitate to take his efforts to the extreme..
As a result, while he tries to infiltrate Opus Nostrum group, he will become an enemy of his old team and he will be pushed away by his old co-warriors and childhood friends.

Devony on the other hand pretends to be human, although she is no

I can’t believe that BREAK THE DAY is already the sixteenth book in the Midnight Breed series. Lara Adrian pens another fun and exciting story for readers with Rafe and Devony.

Now with so many books already out in a series, often a series can get a little bit old or repetitive. However, I found that with this series, and this book in particular, Lara Adrian is capable of bringing forth stories that are fun and engaging without being too repetitive. Take Rafe’s situation for example. As a fo

4 1/2 "Undercover" Stars!

Scholar inArmor

Rafe & Devony were so exciting to read about. Their relationship simple yet dynamic, sincere without too much drama. Both main characters had a behavior that was understandable, both of them had trust issues.

One of the main reasons I love Lara Adrian is her habit of planning ahead. When asked about her 2nd Arc of the series she said that there will be 8 books. One book was with Zael & Brynne and the main reason for this book was to introduce us to the culture of Atlanteans. Other

4.5 stars!

You would think that after 15 books in this series, plus a whole heap of novellas, that it may be running out of steam. But nope! Book #16 in the Midnight Breed series, and this book is just as exciting and unexpected as its predecessors, with a beautifully passionate and emotional love story. I loved it, and was hooked from start to finish!

I am loving this second story arc featuring the children of the original couples of the series, and this time, it’s Rafe’s turn. Rafe Malebranche
Rafe and Devony were brilliant! I loved Devony’s feisty attitude and her sharp mind. She had a lot of grief and angst to work through and Rafe was in the right place at the right time to fill that need.

Even though he looked like a rough and tough warrior, Rafe’s innate goodness still peeked through, showing a very humane side. His duty to the Order versus his feelings for Devony highlighted his indecisiveness, while driving the point home just how torn he was between his past and future.

I was so excited when I found out this was Rafe's book. I love his parents (Tess and Dante from book 2 in the series, Kiss of Crimson) and I've liked what we've seen of his character in the last few books so I was curious to meet the woman who would steal his heart. Rafe is still reeling from the betrayal he suffered in the previous book and it's made him more determined than ever to help the Order bring down the Opus Nostrum terrorist group. So much that he's agreed to go undercover and he's ev ...more

Sometimes you read a series and can't believe you are so far into it. I mean, this is the 16th book in this series, folks and it is still exciting. The writer managed to keep the stories fresh and moving along. We are into the next generation and enjoying watching what they are doing with the changes in their world. We have daywalkers now. Women who are Breed, whereas before it was a purely male group. The nice touch is that they have all the same powers as the men but can walk in the day withou ...more

4.5 // Arc through Bookfunnel

I've read this series since the very beginning over a decade ago; it's a favourite among all my favourite series. While I love it, it might not be to your taste if your taste differs from mine. If you don't like action, romance, vampires, paranormal, this is not for you. If you like those things, you might like it, but as said, our tastes might differ. This is written in my own words in point of view of my own experience of this title and series it's a part of.

2.5* Better than the last read, just. Nice romance, the plot about OPUS same same so it's getting tiring. Picking up the plot and where OPUS is at isn't easy when the books are published on a yearly basis. I had to have a quick glance at the last book just to remind myself. This was one of my fav series and Lara Adrian has done well to strech it so far but enough. It's like an ageing athlete, should know to retire when the going's good. ...more

I received this book for free from Publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.After the ending of Claimed In Shadows, then reading the blurb for Break The Day, I was seriously worried about Rafe. He had faced a lot and I was scared that he was going to be scarred for life. My fear was quickly assuaged within the first chapter or so, and I felt a ton better.

We are still after the elusive Opus Nostrum, and the investigation c

Fantastic addition to the Breed series. I love Rafe, always have. He’s been so important in other books that him finally getting his own is great. Devony is the perfect mate for him. She is such a strong woman. I just love this series it gets better and better with every book.
I thought Rafe needs too much time understanding nothing about what happened in Montreal was his fault, he keeps wallowing in self hate even when everyone around him tells him he's not to blame.
Devony is really interesting, she's on a crusade to avenge her family and for someone who was always put aside by her parents she's really strong and resourceful.
On the other side the plot with Opus Nostrum doesn't really progress.

* You need to read the previous books to understand this story at all. This is not a standalone entry.

After the disaster in Montreal that almost killed his family and his friends, Rafe drops out of the Order on a special ops mission of his own. Hunting down Opus Nostrum while following underground leads, he meets a mysterious daywalking Breed Female named Devony. As they have the same goal to take Opus Nostrum down they decide to combine their powers, but an organisation like that will always be
Jen (That's What I'm Talking About)
After feeling as though he let his team and the Order down when he brought a spy and killer into their home, Rafe thinks the only way to make amends is to take a mission that puts him deep undercover. Only his parents and a few higher-ups know that he really hasn’t parted ways with the Order. While it hurts to lie to his friends and teammates, he uses his cover to get in with a local gang with potential ties to the terrorist group, Opus Nostrum.

This series is just sensational. The next generation of the Breed Warriors is a credit to their parents.

Rafe is feeling guilty about the disaster that occurred in the previous book. He now wants retribution and to achieve that, he risks his reputation.

Devony too, wants retribution for her losses. She will go to any length to get to those responsible for her pain.

After turning his back on the Order, Rafe infiltrates a gang which hopefully will lead him to the Opus Nostrum. He meets Devony who ha

Fantastic Continuation Of Dark Great Longstanding Series.

I've waited a long time for Rafe's story, I remember reading Tess and Dante's story in paperback form a long time ago as one of the beginning books in this wonderful long running series. For newbies to this series(spoiler) their his parents. Rafe's story really began in the prior book when he was tricked by an Opus operative. This deception changed him, and not for the better.

In this book we uncover Dante's son Rafe, and the aftermath from Aric's book and watch him finally start to recover and go after his goal of figuring out who is behind Opus Nostrum. We also meet Devony, another daylighter who's family was well respected and involved with JUSTIS. We ...more

He goes deep under cover to infiltrate a gang with ties to Opus and seemingly turning his back on his best friends.

Rafe finally got his own story! Rafe felt responsible for the almost deaths of the Order in Montreal and is doing everything he can to take down the Opus Nostrum. During that quest he meets Brinks. As they both work undercover to infiltrate any group with ties to Opus, they become close. While this book answers a few questions left by other installments, it also poses others. Everything isn’t always as it seems.

This book had me hooked from the first page. I love the Midnight Breed series and Devony and Rafe's book is another great story. There is action and romance, betrayal and redemption and the fight to save the world continues, the Order won't stop until Opus Nostrum is defeated. I can't wait to see what happens next. ...more

This book was amazing! I love these Breed novels! From the night Rafe and Devony met it was a rollercoaster ride of emotions. I loved how fast he fell for her. She was take no prisoners trying to figure out what her father had left behind. I never saw the twist coming. Never thought it would be so close. I absolutely love this series!

Love undercover

Break the Day is simply amazing!! The story is very consuming you won't want to put it down.
Rafe goes undercover in Break the Day, he has a score to settle with Opus Norstrum. The mole they planted did a number on him that almost got people he loved killed, it's personal now. Going undercover with a gang in Boston isn't going to be easy with his friends and fellow order members in the same area. At first everything was on schedule, the last thing Rafe expected was Brinks.

This was a fun, sexy vampire romance that I was thoroughly entertained by. I do have to admit to not loving this series as much as I loved the original start of the series.

As a huge fan of the Midnight Breed series I couldn’t wait to get started as soon as the ARC arrived on my Kindle.

Lara Adrian just never disappoints, just never ever. I love how she writes about the next generation, how every story fits so perfectly in the storyline and yet you can read it as a stand alone. Reading Break the Day felt like seeing members of the family who you haven’t seen for a while.
