“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
This week I would like to focus on Edge of Dawn by Lara Adrian. Due for release on February 26th, 2013, Edge of Dawn will begin the next era of Midnight Breed. This takes place 20 years after the human world finds out there are vampires in their midst. Mira, a child during the first Midnight Breed novels is now all grown up and has a story all her own.
I am excited to see my beloved Midnight Breed characters but also to see how Mira’s story is going to pan out, and what new members will join the Order. Well, mostly I want to see all the characters from previous books. I’m sure that Mira’s story will be awesome too, I’m just missing my boys!
I have received a copy of this from Netgalley so I will be reading and reviewing as soon as I get through this holiday season. I’m having a hard time restraining myself though!
Goodreads synopsis: Twenty years after the terror of First Dawn—when mankind learned that vampires lived secretly among them—the threat of violence reigns as the two species struggle to coexist. The only group preserving the fragile harmony is the Order, an elite cadre of Breed warriors dedicated to protecting humans and vampires alike. And in this precarious world of torn loyalties and shattered trust, Mira, a fiery squad captain, finds that every fight bears an intensely personal cost.
Raised among the Order, Mira has always believed in the warrior’s code of swift—and even lethal—justice. But the one thing she desires more than the Order’s hard-won acceptance is Kellan Archer, a sexy but troubled Breed fighter. In love with him since childhood, Mira once broke through his tough exterior during an unexpected night of rapture, but the next day he mysteriously disappeared, never to return.
Kellan didn’t think he would ever see Mira again—or have to confront the truth of why he left. After abandoning the Order years ago, he now leads a band of human rebels intent on carrying out their own vigilante rule of law. Yet a high-profile kidnapping assignment brings him face-to-face with the past he sought to avoid, and the striking woman he has tried desperately to forget. And as tensions mount and the risk of bloodshed grows, Kellan and Mira must take sides—between the competing missions that dominate their lives, and the electrifying passion that claims their hearts.
