April's review of 'Ashes of Midnight' by Lara Adrian

Ashes of Midnight (Midnight Breed #6) by Lara Adrian
Publication Date: May 26, 2009
Publisher: Dell Publishing Company
Number of Pages: 368
Format: Paperback
Buy: Amazon | Barnes and Noble 
Description: A woman driven by blood. A man thirsting for vengeance.
A place where darkness and desire meet...

As night falls, Claire Roth flees, driven from her home by a fiery threat that seems to come from hell itself. Then, from out of the flames and ash, a vampire warrior emerges. He is Andreas Reichen, her onetime lover, now a stranger consumed by vengeance. Caught in the cross fire, Claire cannot escape his savage fury—or the hunger that plunges her into his world of eternal darkness and unending pleasure.

Nothing will stop Andreas from destroying the vampire responsible for slaughtering his Breed brethren . . . even if he must use his former lover as a pawn in his deadly mission. Blood-bonded to his treacherous adversary, Claire can lead Andreas to the enemy he seeks, but it is a journey fraught with danger—and deep, unbidden desires. For Claire is the one woman Andreas should not crave, and the only one he’s ever loved. A dangerous seduction begins—one that blurs the lines between predator and prey, and stokes the flames of a white-hot passion that may consume all in its path. . . .

I've loved Andreas throughout the books, and was excited to finally reading his story and see him get his happy ending. I just couldn't get into the book. And I think it has to do with Andreas and Claire knowing each other, and Claire already being a breedmate. It just took the fun and mystery out of it. I'm not even sure that I even liked Claire. Plus this book almost felt like a filler for me. 

Even though I didn't quite loved this book or the one before it, I can't wait to read the rest in this series. 

Rating: 3/5
