    One thought on “Ashes of Midnight”

    1. What a disappointment! I loved Andreas from the other books but this story left a lot to be desired.I'm sorry for spoilers, but I have to do it. There were so many problems with this book, it's hard to even outline them all. I only give it two stars because it's part of a series that has some really good stuff. Otherwise it might even have been a DNF.Okay, first of all -- the heroine supposedly blood-bonded with the villain months after the hero disappeared from her life (about 30 years ago). Th [...]

    2. Well, I must say I was very pleasantly surprised with Ashes of Midnight. Because I have had a crush on Andreas for a while, I've been looking forward to this book, although this seems to be a least favorite of a lot of fans of this series. Veil of Midnight ended with things in an abysmal place for Andreas. His whole family was wiped out through an act of his enemy, Wilhelm Roth, who is highly placed in the Enforcement Agency. This book begins in medias res of Andreas' brutal quest for vengeance. [...]

    3. 4 ½-5 stars – Vampire RomanceI really enjoyed this sixth installment in Lara Adrian’s awesome Midnight Breed series, but found myself feeling a little confused at first because it’s been a while since I’ve read the previous books and there is an ongoing story arc that’s central to the story.For those of you who haven’t yet read this series, there are similarities often drawn with J.R. Ward’s Black Dagger Brotherhood and Ward herself gives an author endorsement, but Adrian’s take [...]

    4. I admit that it is a little tough for paranormal romance authors to get a convincing romance in there while still having to build the world, have a mystery to solve, keep up with the doings of the thousand-member cast, and make sure to let us know what the bad guys are up to. all within less than 300 pages. Tough gig!It helps if you keep a list and check off the items as you do them.Needless to say, the romances suffer a bit and there has to be a little insta-love. And, that was my big frustrati [...]

    5. ^^ BURN BABY BURN!^^Another wonderful instalment in the Breed series, and I don’t know, I am liking them way better now. I find it that the series is starting to shine on its own now. The similarities to other vampire books is becoming less and less, and the action more spine tingling. I am talking hairless brooding vamps, with sex appeal that can warm the coldest winter. Plus the friendships are deeper, and the love oh so much stronger.Andreas Reichen, he was a constant character through prev [...]

    6. Really enjoyed the story but even after reading it a second time i still don't like Claire. Her logic just doesn't add up to someone who claims to love a person so fiercely. The fact that it took her so long to realize for sure who was the real villain just made me want to slap her a bit. *sigh* I think i need to go back to reading another genre for a while.

    7. La trama vampírica como siempre muy interesante aunque para mí la historia de amor es mas floja que las anteriores. Creo que el hecho de que fueran pareja en el pasado les resta pasión y entrega, algo a lo que nos tiene muy bien acostumbradas la autora en anteriores libros. De todas formas engancha y se disfruta. Lo cierto es que sin desmerecer la obra, este libro me ha recordado a la película de animación Frozen pero con fuego en vez de hielo. Las que lo habéis leído me entenderéis. Es [...]

    8. The charismatic Andreas we all knew and loved from the previous books in the series is pretty much nonexistent in Ashes of Midnight. Although we do see some sparks of the old him. Ruined by the attack on his Berlin darkhaven, Andreas vows to avenge the deaths of his innocent kin. His fury reaches monumental levels and it seems as if nothing will stop him until he kills Wilhelm Roth. His fiery gift of pyrokinesis acts as a great representation of the anger he is experiencing within. Both dangerou [...]

    9. Hmmm. "Ashes of Midnight" is book six in Lara Adrian's 'Midnight Breed' series. I have to say that it wasn't my favorite. I also have to say that it follows very well on the heels of book five, "Veil of Midnight", since events here pick up where it left off. This series is about Adrian's version of vampires (there's good ones and bad ones) and the good guys' fight to save humanity. Claire never knew she was special--until Wilhelm Roth saved her from an attack and through him, she met the love of [...]

    10. When last we heard about Andreas Reichen, he had unleashed a fireball on his decimated home and disappeared. In Ashes of Midnight he makes his comeback in a BIG way. By the first chapter, Lara Adrian lets us know that the once carefree rogue is gone, and in his place is a merciless killer intent on revenge. He is determined to exact his fiery brand of justice on anyone who aligned themselves with the Darkhaven leader, Wilhelm Roth, and while lost within the destructive force of his pyrokinesis h [...]

    11. Okay I'm not sure why this entry into Adrian's Midnight Breeds series got such bad press- I think this one is one of my favorites!AOM not only had the typical thrilling suspense we've come to expect in Adrian's popular pnr series, but also some uber romantic elements, I find myself helpless to resist.Not only linked by the fact they are tied to a race of Alien progeny, Andreas Reichen and Claire Roth have a history together. Long ago they fell in love, only to be parted by unforeseen circumstanc [...]

    12. Another winner from the Midnight Breed!Book 6 in the series picks up three months after the tragic events at the last book, and Andreas Reichen is on a mission of vengeance to kill Wilhelm Roth, the man who cost him everything. His fury has reawakened a monstrous power in him that he is unleashing on anything and everything in his way, and he is a man possessed! To make matters more interesting, suddenly thrust into the picture is Claire, the only woman he has ever loved. Together for only a few [...]

    13. This book is on FIREEEE!!!!!! 5 Stars for my beloved Andreas! I'd like to quote P!NK instead of writing a review!Where there is desire there is gonna be a flame,Where there is a flame someone's bound to get burned,But just because it burns doesn't mean you're gonna die,You've gotta get up and try try try.

    14. This is book six in Lara Adrian's Midnight Breed series and I couldn`t put it down. Following events set up in the last book VEIL OF MIDNIGHT this instalment just takes off, with it's exciting and suspense filled storyline. There is plenty of angst filled romance here too and several ongoing subplots and POV's which all manage to come together for one explosive ending. Fans of the series will be thrilled as we get to revisit past members of the `Order' and their `Breedmates' who all have signifi [...]

    15. Ashes of Midnight is the sixth in the Midnight Breed series and the books should be read in order because they continue solving a problem while each installment has a different hero/heroine. There are also brief updates on previous characters in later books. The series has come a (very) long way since the first saga was told. Now the plot to get rid of the really bad guy (Dragos), hunt the Ancient, kill the Gen Ones (bad ones) and restore order to the vampire community is what keeps the series m [...]

    16. 3 starsI had a hard time remembering the history of the characters in this series (and considering I've read them all at some point isn't good) so I had to rate this as a stand alone novel.The problem with this series and others like it is that they all kind of run together, especially if you read them from the beginning and have to wait for each new release in the series. There were times when reading Ashes that it mirrored Ward's "Blackdagger" series so much that I actually had to stop and kee [...]

    17. I was rather looking forward to Reichen's story after Veil of Midnight but the plot's become more absurd, with pyrokinesis (now that's an awesome concept) as the one dividing factor in uniting two lovers together The good things about it though were the numerous locations for the setting (although Berlin could have been more detailed?) and in particular, the conflict and tension between Reichen, Clare and her Breedmate, Roth. The former two of whom unabashedly have a passionate affair, with th [...]

    18. A reread time for me. Didn't enjoy it as much as the first time, but I obviously knew how this was going to play out this time. Still good though and when I'm in a m/f frame of mind, this is a-go-to series for me.

    19. I finally finished this one and it was good, just as the other novels in the series have been, and the heroine Claire was ok in the beginning, but, got on my nerves by the last few chaps. of the book, as usual with the books in this seriesI liked the powers that both Andreas and Claire had.Andreas the pyrokenesis and Claire, the ability to dreamwalk, those were both some pretty cool powers to haveAt this point I am wondering if Dragos is ever going to get caught and killed at some point in this [...]

    20. First read March 2009 - rating: 3 starsRe-read March 2013 - rating: 3 starsNot my favorite book of the series - then or now. It bothers me when a series starts out focusing on a core group of characters and then all of a sudden it goes off the rails by giving a secondary character their own book. I really liked Andreas Reichen in previous books but he and Claire's story, while littered with sweet and tender moments, never really resonated with me because they are only loosely tied to the Order. [...]

    21. Breed Warrior Andreas Special ability: Pyrokinesis, setting himself on fire like a human torchAge: Around 300 years old Breedmate ClaireSpecial ability: Walking in the dreams of people Occupation: Musician, ComposerMark place: Right side of neckSettings: Germany (Hamburg, countryside), Denmark, USA (Boston, Newport Rhodes island, Connecticut)I had a small crash with Andreas at Tegan's book. He was the movie star handsome bad boy. I was looking forward to reading his story. I also liked Helen whi [...]

    22. This book is amazing. I'm glad that 28th June is almost here for another book of Lara Adrian. I'm so very content with this series that I can't put my feelings properly in words. I've always wanted to get to know Andreas Reichen better and I wasn't disappointed. Lara Adrian creates this amazing love stories that in the end you just want to cry for joy because the characters you love so dearly finally have their happy ending. I think she excelled herself in creating Andreas Reichen. He's just a c [...]

    23. Ao ler uma saga com mais de três quatro livros, sou da opinião que existem alguns factores de exigência por parte do leitor para que este continue fiel à mesma. Tais factores passam pela capacidade do autor surpreender o leitor, manter uma boa dose de acção e imprevisibilidade e, no caso de séries como a Raça da Noite, ser versátil nas histórias de amor que apresenta. Em Cinzas da Meia-Noite temos tudo isso e no fim ainda ficou aquela sensação do "quero mais". Lara Adrian não desilu [...]

    24. As we know from the end of the last book, every man, woman and child in the hero's Darkhaven has been wiped out. This book is about Andreas' journey of revenge and personal destruction. Along the way he finds Claire his lost love [and wife of William Roth, the man who gave the order for the destruction.:] The h/h and the action move to Boston and the Order uses the heroine's abilities to track down Roth and his ally Dragos [the chief villain that the Order has been pursuing for several books:].T [...]

    25. I really like this series and even since meeting Andre I looked forward to his story. I engaged with his character and after the tragedy that happenned in his life, I wanted to see him find happiness again.What didn't work for me was Claire. Could there ever be anyone so dumb and idiotic like here whole trust issue she had with Andreeasewhere are you coming from???? I wanted to throttle her a few times.Loved getting to see the characters from the previous booksLucan & GabrielleI love that co [...]

    26. I absolutely loved Andreas, and the continuation of this story. I think his talent is really cool, and I look forward to seeing him in future books helping the Order, now that he has things under control. The reason for the 4 stars is because I had a very hard time connecting with Claire. I spent quite a bit of time not liking her, then she redeemed herself in my view, but I just didn't like her as I do the other Breedmates. Well.off to Alaska now!!!!!

    27. WOW!!!! Usually the heroine is the one making the difference for me. If she is strong and kick-a@@ probably I'll love the story ;) but in this case I'm in love with Andreas Reichen.What a man, ops, a vampire, I mean! ;)Andreas Reichen is the only survivor of his family and he's ready to get revenge. We already know who is the responsible but now we know that Andreas Reichen was in love with a girl and now this girl, a woman now, is the wife of his enemy.Wonderful book, so recommended!
