Midnight Rising

Official information

Midnight Rising Author: Lara Adrian
Series: Midnight Breed
Publisher: Dell

In a world of shadows and dark, consuming hungers, desire is the deadliest weapon...

For journalist Dylan Alexander, it began with the discovery of a hidden tomb, thrusting her into the center of a gathering storm of violence and secrets. But nothing is as dangerous as the scarred, lethally seductive man who rises from the shadows to draw her into his world of dark desire and endless night.

Fueled by pain and rage over a shattering betrayal, the warrior Rio has pledged his life to the war against the Rogues. He will let nothing stand in his way-least of all a mortal woman with the power to expose the entire vampire race. For an ancient evil has been awakened, and a stunning darkness is on the rise. Suddenly Dylan is powerless to resist Rio's touch, even as she uncovers a shocking link to her own past. And now she must choose: Leave Rio's midnight realm, or risk it all for the man who has shown her true passion and the infinite pleasures of the heart. . . .

My review

Midnight Rising had put me on the fence and I don't know which side is the one for me. On one hand, the book was much anticipated. On the other, the book was much anticipated and especially coming after Midnight Awakening had the bar set very high.

I cannot say it was a disappointment, or a slow boring read. It wasn't. I loved how the world of Midnight Breeds was shaping up, the twists and the power behind everything from emotions to the dastardly deeds of enemies.

I loved Rio, he was the hero capable of dragging the reader into the story. Experiencing everything through his eyes. The character was well developed, interesting and able to touch my heart. The heroine, however, did not touch anything, except maybe evoked irritation and annoyance.

Dylan was the biggest problem of Midnight Rising, and unfortunately, there was a lot of her in it.

I could not warm up to Dylan no matter how I tried. Furthermore, her behavior was not just baffling, but simply illogical. For me, this love story to work, considering Rio's previous betrayal, Dylan had to be something amazing and I'm afraid she wasn't even average.

That's my uptake on Midnight Rising.

Rating 3.5
