Book #: Book 9 in the Midnight Breed series
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.
OMG ITS A BOOK ABOUT HUNTER!!!
This character is one I am seriously intrigued by, and I am so glad there is a book about him now. I couldn’t put this book down, I had to know more about Hunter and Corinne. And the introduction of the character Nathan (who gets his own book later on, I think). I could not get through the pages fast enough.
And there was a birth. I am so addicted to this series now and its characters that I actually got hell emotional when the baby came out, and was grinning like an idiot.
The book is also heavily based around Chase, who is seriously toeing the line of bloodlust, and I kept wanting him to hurry up and get help but no, he has to be stubborn.
AND THAT ENDING…. I MAY HAVE SCREAMED “BUT WHAT HAPPENS NEXT?!?!” before staring at a wall in confusion and frantically trying to turn non-existent pages on my e-reader, convinced that the story had cut off abruptly and surely there was more story. I mean, what happens to Chase now? I HAVE SO MANY QUESTIONS.
I need to get onto the next book to find out, but there is a novella in the way that I have to get through first. I NEED ANSWERS DAMMIT.
Deeper Than Midnight rating: 10/10. First book of this series to get this rating, but by golly did it earn it. Hunter falling in love, Chase wrestling with bloodlust, the Order’s compound compromised, Dragos getting shot… this story had it all.
Would I re-read it? HELLS YES
Who would I recommend it to? fans of the series- this is the book we have been waiting for. Pick it up now.
It is a book for fans of paranormal romances, mainly females 18+.
