DELIVERED FROM THE DARKNESS, A WOMAN FINDS HERSELF PLUNGED INTO A PASSION THAT IS DEEPER THAN MIDNIGHT.

 

At eighteen, Corinne Bishop was a beautiful, spirited young woman living a life of privilege as the adopted daughter of a wealthy family. Her world changed in an instant when she was stolen away and held prisoner by the malevolent vampire Dragos. After many years of captivity and torment, Corinne is rescued by the Order, a cadre of vampire warriors embroiled in a war against Dragos and his followers. Her innocence taken, Corinne has lost a piece of her heart as well—the one thing that gave her hope during her imprisonment, and the only thing that matters to her now that she is free.

Assigned to safeguard Corinne on her trip home is a formidable golden-eyed Breed male called Hunter. Once Dragos’s most deadly assassin, Hunter now works for the Order, and he’s hell-bent on making Dragos pay for his manifold sins. Bonded to Corinne by their mutual desire, Hunter will have to decide how far he’ll go to end Dragos’s reign of evil—even if carrying out his mission means shattering Corinne’s tender heart.

Review:

"The solid ninth and penultimate entry in bestseller Adrian's Midnight Breed vampire romance series (after Taken by Midnight) advances the overall story line nicely without detracting from the central romance between two deeply damaged characters. Hunter is now a Breed vampire of the justice-serving Order, but the Order's greatest enemy, Dragos, once trained him to be a mindless weapon, and much of that training still shapes him. Breedmate Corinne Bishop, recently rescued from decades of torture at Dragos's hands, has two goals: reuniting with her family and finding the son she bore while imprisoned. As they fall in love, Hunter has a precognitive vision of Corinne begging him to spare someone's life, wondering whether fate will tear them apart even if they overcome their intimacy issues. New readers should start with book one; returning fans will love Adrian's latest dark and dangerous antihero. (July)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

Synopsis:

Love and Vengeance...

The violent attack left Synjon destroyed and his lover dead—at the will of the evil vampire Cruen. Syns passionate savior was Petra. When she became pregnant with his child, it should have been a blessing—until Syn vanished after discovering the truth: Petra was the daughter of the man he despised above all others. The daughter of Cruen.

When Petras health begins to decline, she contacts Syn to help save their baby. Though reluctant to see Petra, he cannot turn his back on his own innocent child. But night after night, as his feelings for Petra are rekindled, Syn becomes increasingly torn.

Although everyone assumes that Cruen is dead, Syn is not convinced—and is still hell-bent on finding and destroying him once and for all. But will his thirst for vengeance keep him from seeing what is really worth living for before it is too late?

Our Review [by LITERAL ADDICTION¡¦s Pack Alpha ¡V Michelle L Olson]:
I am a HUGE Breed series fan, and was looking forward to this release like nobody¡¦s business. Now that I¡¦ve read it and had some time to think on it, I can safely say in print that this book was not my favorite of the series, but it was still a very good installment. I¡¦m sure as soon as I read Darker After Midnight, I¡¦ll feel that everything that happened in Deeper Than Midnight was completely necessary for the series as a whole, as that¡¦s what this book felt like to me¡K a set up for the next installment (similar to what other authors do with novellas released between books in a series).

I have always had a soft spot for Hunter, ever since he took it upon himself to be free and joined up with ¡¥the good guys¡¦ (the silent, broody, ¡¥broken¡¦ types are always a weakness of mine. º) My favorite Breed Male is Chase though, and this book was almost more about him than it was about Hunter. While that should have made me very happy, it was this conundrum that sort of left me scratching my head and wondering if it was Lara¡¦s intention for this book to be a big segue into Darker After Midnight, or if she really felt like she had to tell Hunter¡¦s story and it just sort of ended up as a lead-in story to the next book.

Character-wise: Hunter was the strong, capable male we expect him to be in this book, but it was also wonderful to see him experience some real emotion -- heart breaking at times, frustrating at others, but wonderful. As for Corinne, I wasn¡¦t sure that I was going to like her at the beginning. She felt a little weak to me, but after her secrets are revealed and her single minded determination becomes evident, you realize just how much of a survivor she really is and I started warming to her. She and Hunter work well together and I think this was a good pairing in the end, but the steamy chemistry that we¡¦ve come to expect from Lara¡¦s Breed series just wasn¡¦t there with these two. I don¡¦t know if it was done on purpose because of the history of each of the characters themselves and the fact that Lara felt that the usual explosiveness wouldn¡¦t be believable with these two or what, but in my honest opinion, while enjoyable and believable, the romance was a little flat for me .

Plotline: As I stated earlier, a LARGE part of the book was about Chase and his struggles with demons within and without. I loved that, and soaked up as much Harvard as I could with this book... We get tie-ins with several of the other characters as well; Mira, Dante, Tess, etc, which was great also. The baseline of what the synopsis hinted at though, Hunter and Corinne¡¦s story and their ultimate goal as a team, while entertaining, felt like it never got closure, and I can only hope that more of that is resolved In Darker After Midnight as well. I literally hit ¡§next page¡¨ on my Kindle expecting at least another chapter only to find out that there WASN¡¦T a next page¡K

All-in-all, LITERAL ADDICTION Paranormal Book Club gives Deeper Than Midnight 3 1/2 Skulls. It was well written, as everything in Lara¡¦s repertoire is, and it was enjoyable, also as everything Lara writes is, but it left me wanting & wondering a little bit too much to give it the 4+ Skulls I had hoped to award it. I definitely recommend that all Midnight Breed fans read this, as there is so much ¡¥filler story¡¦ in it, and so much of that ¡¥filler¡¦ is Sterling Chase related, I can¡¦t imagine reading Darker After Midnight without having read Deeper Than Midnight.
