“Something inhuman is stalking the frigid Alaskan wilds, leaving unspeakable carnage in its wake. For bush pilot Alexandra Maguire, the killings stir memories of a horrific event she witnessed as a child and evoke in her the inexplicable sense of otherness she has long felt but never fully understood . . . until a darkly seductive stranger with secrets of his own enters her world.Sent from Boston on a mission to investigate the savage attacks and stop the slaughter, vampire warrior Kade has his own reasons for returning to the frigid, forbidding place of his birth. Haunted by a secret shame, Kade soon realizes the stunning truth of the threat he faces–a threat that will jeopardize the fragile bond he has formed with the courageous, determined young woman who arouses his deepest passions and most primal hungers. But in bringing Alex into his world of blood and darkness, Kade must confront both his own personal demons and the even greater evil that could destroy all he holds dear.”
Okay, I have a confession. My reasoning for reading Shades of Midnight was purely selfish. I wanted to get to Taken by Midnight. Oh and one more confession and this one is a big one. I haven’t read Ashes of Midnight. I know, I know..bad, bad girl. I will go back and read it….sometime. Anyway, I’ll get back on subject. I get a little nervous when a series has a lot of books. It can get redundant, same plot just different characters. However, Lara rocks it. She keeps it new and interesting. I got to give her big props for that. I mean, I have trouble keeping my dinner menu from getting redundant. Her writing is truly amazing and she is extremely talented. I can also say she is very nice. I met her in Philly at AAD and it was a pleasure meeting her.
Now for the actual review. This book centers around Kade and Alex. I really like them together. They fit well. Both are fighting their own demons and together help one another. Which I know is very similar to other stories but honestly she finds a way to make it fresh and not the same subject. My attention was grabbed from the start and I couldn’t stop reading. There were twists and turns along the way that kept you in suspense. These two are hot together and keep the heat factor up and stay up. I love the interaction with the breeds, it’s entertaining and the you find yourself falling in love with the characters you’ve read before. Another thing I liked, in this book it references to what the other mated breedmates are currently doing. I loved that. They aren’t sitting at home knitting and pining for their loves when they are away. This is a must read and I can’t say enough about this book and the series. It is one of my favorite series and I can admit I am a Lara groupie!!!
