Shorter than the books from the original series and without the usual back story and interwoven plot mechanics, Born of Darkness is streamlined and hyper focused. There's no larger story arc here, so the cast of characters is small (although it will potentially spin out other character arcs). And the world already knows all about the Breed warriors, so Asher's glyphs and need to feed on blood and avoid sunlight are commonly known in the story world. As a reader, it will help a ton to already know the history of the Breed warriors and who/what their breedmates are, but that's not absolutely necessary.

The romance between Asher and Naomi felt a little rushed, and I didn't really identify with her character (she uses her Breedmate gift to steal from a casino, the owner of which killed her mother), even though she's altruistic, a sort of modern-day robin hood.

Good ending, nice action and a satisfying finish. Born Of Darkness is the first book in the Midnight Breed Hunter Legacy series of stories about the lost boys of Dragos's brutal assassin program. You don't need to have read the previous books to enjoy this one, but being familiar with the world will help.

If you want to experience the epic, full scale of this story universe, start back at the beginning at Kiss of Midnight.
