Reviewer: Stacey Krug  


The line between darkness and light is drawn in blood, and the stakes have never been higher. Nothing less than the fate of the world rests in the hands of the Order, and in one Breed warrior's quest to thaw the heart of an immortal queen in the final novel of Lara Adrian's New York Times and #1 international bestselling Midnight Breed vampire romance series.

As a Breed warrior and the son of the Order’s founder and commander, Darion Thorne is an exacting tactician and a lethal combatant, yet nothing can prepare him for the catastrophic act that forces him to step to the helm of the Order as its leader. With their adversaries growing bolder and more brazen with every strike, Darion knows he must take the war to them before it’s too late to stop them at all.

Yet of all their enemies, the one most dangerous for Darion is the beautiful, yet volatile, Selene, Queen of the Atlanteans. Determined to recover four powerful crystals stolen from her ages ago, Selene will go to any lengths to have them. When that goal puts one of the Order’s own in the crosshairs, she finds herself locked in a personal battle with Darion, a Breed warrior she knows she should despise, yet who stirs an unbidden desire within her.

With the battle lines drawn between them and a diabolical evil on the rise, can Darion and Selene put aside their mistrust in time to save all they hold dear, or will they see the world plunge into a darkness that has no end?


The Midnight Breed Series is extraordinary and I’ve enjoyed every book, looking forward to taking the journey with new characters. King of Midnight was no exception. I dove back into the Breed world excited for a new story and savoring it until the last page. Final books in a series are always bittersweet. I wanted to know how Lara Adrian would wrap up her series, but I didn’t want the story to end.

Fans will not be disappointed with the final story featuring Darion and Selene. King of Midnight has everything a reader would want to see in a series wrap up.

These stories will live on waiting for new readers to stumble upon. The addicting characters and plot twists will enrapture future readers, and I envy them the start of an amazing adventure.

I received an ARC for an honest review.

Reviewer: Stacey Krug  


A woman trapped in an abusive marriage

A Kindred warrior hired to guard her
As they grow closer, will Sark be able to give Isla up?
Or will a secret part of him awaken and demand to keep her?
Read Guarded by the Hybrid to find out.

Lady Isla Le’rank is trapped in a loveless, abusive marriage, all because she is a rare Moonstone goddess. But she cannot bear her husband an heir until her skin takes on the pearly, opalescent glow that means she is ripe for mating. Since her husband has failed to bring on the glow himself, he hires a Kindred warrior to help him.

Sark is a Hybrid—half Giant Kindred and half Ice Drake Kindred. He hires himself out as a Security Specialist to the rich and famous of the galaxy. But this latest contract is very strange—why in the Seven Hells would Lord Baslik Le’rank hire him to act as his wife’s bodyguard…and also massage her every night?

The contract is strange but the money is good—Sark takes the job. But when he finds that his new charge is as defiant as she is beautiful, the ice around his heart begins to melt.

Isla, for her part, finds that her body reacts to the touch of her new guard in a way it never did for her cruel husband. She begins to care for Sark and he begins to care for her, but he knows he can never have her—she is another male’s mate. But when she finally begins to glow, during a dangerous trip to the world of Fenushia, will Sark give her up—or will a buried part of him awake and demand to keep her?
You’ll have to read Guarded by the Hybrid to find out!


Guarded by the Hybrid has a new giant/dragon hybrid, Goddess intervention, a princess that needs rescuing, and lots of steamy romance. What more could you ask for in a paranormal romance?

I loved Sark and Isla and their interactions together. They burned up the pages with their shared chemistry.

This story also contains new humanoids on another planet full of more sci-fi adventure and creativity as their journey takes them off world. The humanoids of Fenushia are very interesting as is their way of life.

Fair warning that Isla does suffer from domestic abuse in this story, but don’t let that deter you from reading, as always, Evangeline Anderson manages a pleasurable outcome for her characters.
