Title: Darker After Midnight (Midnight Breed Series)
Author: Lara Adrian
Genre: Vampire Romance
Darker After Midnight is the latest book in Lara Adrian’s Midnight Breed series, and pulls together many of the hanging threads from the previous nine of so novels. The story picks up right after Deeper than Midnight, when Sterling Chase walks out into the sunlight and surrenders himself to the human police to try and buy some time for the rest of the Order and the families to evacuate from their compound in Boston. Chase is fighting off his Bloodlust, and remains in police custody voluntarily, pretending to cooperate with the authorities. He’s about ready to bust out, having bought as much time as he can, when Tavia Fairchild arrives at the police station. She’s there to identify Chase as the culprit in an attempted murder on arch villain Dragos (who goes as Drake Masters in the human world) at the party thrown by her boss, a U.S. Senator. Tavia’s life is turned upside down when her world and Chase’s collide, and she discovers things about herself that she would never have suspected. Tavia and Chase, together with the rest of the Order have to pull out all the stops to halt Dragos’ plans to have all Breed and humans bow to his power.
