From Lara Adrian's site itself-
At the crossroads of death and desire, a woman tastes a pleasure no mortal is meant to survive . . .
In the frozen Alaskan wilderness, former state trooper Jenna Darrow survives an unspeakable breach of body and soul. But with her narrow escape comes an even greater challenge. For strange changes are taking place within her, as she struggles to understand--and control--a new hunger. To do so, she will seek shelter in the Boston compound of the Order, an ancient race of vampire warriors whose very existence is shrouded in mystery. Perhaps the most mysterious of them all is Brock, a brooding, dark-eyed alpha male whose hands hold the power to comfort, heal . . . and arouse.
As she recovers under Brock's care, Jenna finds herself drawn to the Order's mission: to stop a ruthless enemy and its army of assassins from subjecting Earth to a reign of terror. Yet in spite of their resolve, a purely physical relationship without strings soon binds Brock and Jenna together with a desire fiercer than life and stronger than death itself--until a secret from Brock's past and Jenna's own mortality challenges their forbidden love to the ultimate trial by fire.
This book seems to be a little different in that the gal lead is not one of the Breedmates that the vamps are usually with. I'm wondering how that'll go, but I liked the last, and Jenna was featured in it, Shades Of Midnight so I'm interested to see how Lara handles this new twist. I really don't know Brock that well, she is taking the lesser secondary Breed warriors now, I wish she would have done Sterling Chase, aka Harvard's book, I like his character. Ever since he realized Elise, Tegan's mate wasn't interested in him, he kinda went off the deep end a bit and I want to see her develop him so more.
I have read all the breed so far. I liked all of them except Ashes of Midnight. Just kinda blah for me. My faves are Tegan and Rio's books, Midnight Awakening and Midnight Rising. Those dark sulky brooders make the books enjoyable.
