Shelves: 2021-favourites


Superb - I loved Phaedra and Micah, they are the kind of couple I absolutely adore reading about but because I've followed this series from book 1, I know the world and its background, thus making these novels an excellent addition to the series.

Lara Adrian is one of my favourite authors, I love the Breed books, she has a unique way of capturing the reader with her words and pulling us into the world of vampires and their quest for peace (alongside meeting their mates). Sadly, for m

Another outstanding book from the midnight breed series by Lara Adrian! I love these alien vampire warriors with their amber cat like gazes and their total bad ass attitudes and even at book 17 of the series I still am so obsessed with each and every book that comes out. The chemistry between Micah and phaedra was hot,sexy and intense and one of my new favorite couples. Theirs alot going on in this book with plenty of action and the storytelling and the characters layered and flawlessly written ...more

This one was just ok for me. I liked Phaedra but Micah, not so much. He was an ass from the start and didn't really change for most of the book. Even after the they had sex, he was an ass.

I found Phaedra and her connection to the crystals interesting, especially when we learned more about the white doe. I liked how Phaedra was able to protect everyone when needed. It will be interesting to see where things go from here with the crystals.

4 1/2 "Not so Deadland" Stars!

Wow! I was not expecting that! I like Micah and Phaedra just fine. Their push and pull was good, but this one was all about the overall Breed story arch. And I am here for it! Boy oh boy I cannot wait until September. Happy reading!

Breed Warrior Micah entire team has been killed by some kind of UV light. Micah has had this dream continually about what happen in the Siberian forest.

Phaedra an Atlantean has also had the exact same dream as Micah. When they meet up Micah blames Phaedra for killing his team. Sparks Fly.

Opus is still attacking the Breed. I didn't like that the Order did not have a massive strike against Opus. It felt like they got away with the massive attacks against The Order. There should have been some typ

4.5 stars!

An exciting, action-packed and passionately romantic read, I have been so looking forward to reading this book! Tegan and Elise (from Midnight Awakening) are my favourites of the original Midnight Breed couples, and this is the story of their son, Micah, who is now all grown up, and a fierce warrior fighting for The Order, just like his father before him.

Phaedra is an Atlantean, once part of the court and tightly bound to her race and its power, but she has been living among humans in

There are more than twenty books -including the novellas- of Midnight Breed and Next Generation and I have enjoyed every single of them since they first published, more than a decade ago. They are not your typical vampire romance books; they are perfect mix of romance, action, friendship, loyalty, mystery and the paranormal world. Ms Lara Adrian still writes them, I still read them. I have been looking forward to reading the story of Micah, who is the son of Elise and Tegan from Midnight Awakeni ...more

Micah is Tegan's son from the original Breed crew. He meets Atlantean Phaedra when she's walking in the Dreamscape and he's in the deadlands in Siberia. Tragedy happens. But are Micah and Phaedra fated mates for meeting in the Dreamscape?

Phaedra is intimately involved with the crystals that the Breed need to collect and keep safe. They can be used as weapons.

The Opus Nostrum is up to deadly tricks in this book, with tragic consequences.

They find a surprise.

In all, this is a book filled with act

Another amazing read, for sure, by one of my All Time Favorite Authors. I was totally captivated from the opening until the final scenes. All things I loved about the series were all there, in this rather short yet super sweet novel. And OMG‼️ What a Star-Studded little novel❣️It read like a Love Letter from the Author to Her Loyal Readers 💝

I was in awe and so ecstatic when Phaedra suddenly discovered her staggering defensive power in the nick of time~just when she needed to protect and saved Mi

This review was originally posted at Rantings of a Reading Addict

I was not surprised at the intensity of Micah, knowing he is Tegan's son. He takes his responsibilities to the Order, as well as his fellow soldiers so seriously that when something happens to his whole team, he will not stop until he finds answers and avenges them. The whole incident is beyond what anyone could have predicted and becomes a true mystery to be solved.

Phaedra's involvement is suspect. She is seen at the location, kno

Fantastic. This book brought out every emotion for me. I laughed, cried, smiled with joy & was shocked beyond belief. It was just an amazing addition to the series. So many new ideas of what is going to happen and who the true evil really is. Micah & Phaedra are a fantastic couple.
I received an ARC for my honest review.
I enjoyed this though it felt a bit rushed with a lot of things going on. Well narrated by Hillary Huber with many appearances by familiar characters. I was surprised to see the series is wrapping up with the next book, especially because it seemed like more doors were opened than closed in this book.

3.5 - 4.0 ***

I'm a few books behind in the series and there's quite a bit going on in preparation for the series conclusion.

Micah reminded me of Teagan except he didn't whine as much. I didn't dislike Micah or Phaedra. I thought they were OK as a couple. I did have trouble understanding what ancient Atlantean Phaedra saw in young, conflicted Micah. The relationship evolved so quickly they barely got to know each other.

The addition of one more ancient running amok is sure to have consequences fo

Finding the right words to say just how much I enjoyed this book eludes me. I felt the wave of concern for Lucan as the breeds battle the latest evil targeted at them, Elise’s dread at the possibility of losing her husband or son and took the journey with each of the characters throughout.
Micah and Phaedra were so different but also so alike their characters are dynamic and their interaction compelling. Fall of Night is well written and delivered perfectly and I can’t recommend it highly enough

This book is about one of the Breed and how he found his mate. Some of the same villains in the last book have appeared here and one villain I thought was gone.....isn’t.

Another great read, finally we learn more about Jenna and the results of her time with the Ancient. Lovely to check in with the members of The Order, Tegan in particular and this story centres around his son Micah who is a warrior for the order.
Micah leads his team into a catastrophe, the result he is the only survivor - he is saved by a mysterious women as he’s drawn to her. Suddenly, she disappears only to meet him in person and sparks fly. He is consumed with anger as he distrusts e

The novella, A Touch of Midnight, was a freebie on Amazon UK and I read it back in 2014. I really enjoyed it and had planned to read the whole Midnight Breed series. However, that never happened. How could I have forgotten? Fall of Night is my first foray back into the world.

I loved Lara Adrian’s writing style.
This story was fairly easy to get into, despite my missing the previous 16 in the series. 😉 Lara’s descriptive narrative was good and the basic backstories w

Sadly, this is likely the weakest book of the series and would have worked better as a novella rather than a full-length book. Plot seemed very rushed with very little work done to develop anything as far as Phaedra and Micah is concerned. They go from complete strangers to deeply in love in just days, and while insta-love doesn't usually annoy me, in this situation it just made me go *but why?*. Here's to hoping the next one doesn't feel so forced. ...more

It's been a while since I've last read this series but coming back to it always feels so welcoming. I read this book almost in one setting, enjoying the ride, and everything that is unfolding towards the final installment. I admit I waited with this one a bit because I wanted it to be closer to the release of the last book and I think it was a good idea as the ending brings even more complexity than I would have thought. Also I really enjoyed getting a bit more of the original couples -

I've been waiting for this book for SO LONG! Unfortunately for me, and all the other Midnight Breed fans, Ms. Adrian has spent some time the last few years writing other books, which are also amazing, but not about my Breed warriors. So, I've been sad. That sadness ended today! Or rather, ridiculously early this morning.

Fall of Night is the story of Micah, son to Tegan and Elise. I was super excited for this one, because Tegan is my absolute favorite from the original order. I do really enjoy a

Fall Of Night is all about Micah who is the son of Tegan and Elise who we first meet in book 3 of the series. Micah is one of the orders best warriors and is only rivaled by his father Tegan. When the covert mission that he is leading into the deadlands an area that is off limits, goes disastrously wrong. Micah is the sole survivor of an attack that introduces us to Phaedra, an Atlantean who has been living among the humans after leaving her Atlantean home centuries before.

So when he looses his entire team on a secret mission in Kazakhstan, he vows to himself that he will not rest until the perpetrator has been punished.

In this book we discover and find out the undercover mission Micah was on and find out where he went MIA at. We also meet Phaedra, his mate who is Atlantean and has a heart of gold and unique talent and family history making her a valuable woman to help the Order in their goal of destroying Opus Nostrum and fighting against Selene.

As Ms. Adrian is bringing the Midnight Breed series to its conclusion, all I can say is I will miss it terribly, although I know she will have other novels just as exciting in store for us, as well as one more Breed novel, and continuation of the Hunter Legacy Series.

Back to Fall of Night… This book centers around Micah, the son of Tegan and Elise. Tegan is Lucan Thorne’s second in command, one of the most lethal warriors, and Micah, cold and equally as lethal, is following in his father’s foots

When Breed Warrior Micah’s mission into the off-limits area called Deadlands goes terribly wrong leaving him as the sole survivor, he won’t rest until he has answers and vengeance for his team. Unfortunately, he doesn’t count on partnering up with the beautiful Atlantean Phaedra to get those answers.

I was a bit worried when I started this book that I would struggle to catch up with the story. It's been awhile since we visited this much loved world and I'm happy to say it was like I'd visited it yesterday. This story gives us another piece of the puzzle in the ongoing war the Midnight Breed are engaged in.

They're under fire from multiple sides and there's a lot that needs resolving. This book has a lot going on, had a family feel for me with a lot of the wider characters showing up on the p

Like all of Lara Adrian’s books this one packs a punch on every level with action and heart stopping danger at almost every turn, passion, heat and love.

This is Breed warrior Micah and Atlantean Phaedra’s story. These two unlikely lovers meet in The Dreamscape and the story unfolds from there. After a devastating tragedy Micah believes the Atlanteans are behind it and vows with every fiber of his being he’ll get revenge for the deaths of his team, leaving him the sole survivor.
