Midnight Awakening – Lara Adrian

Adrian, Lara. Midnight Awakening. (New York: Dell, 2007). ISBN – 9780553589399.

Main Characters: Elise Chase and Tegan

Related Works: This is part of Lara Adrian’s The Midnight Breeds series. The first book in the series is Kiss of Midnight – the story of Lucan Thorne and Gabrielle Maxwell. Kiss of Crimson, Tess Culver and Dante’s story, is the second in the series. The third is Midnight Awakening, the story of Tegan and Elise Chase.

Description from book:

He has resisted temptation for centuries, a stone-cold warrior whose frozen heart refused to thaw – until her . . .

With a dagger in her hand and vengeance on her mind, Darkhaven beauty Elise Chase prowls Boston’s streets in search of retribution against the Rogue vampires who took from her everything she cherished. Using an extraordinary psychic gift, she tracks her prey, well aware that she power she possesses is destroying her. She must learn to harness this gift, and for that she can turn to only one man – the deadliest of the Breed warriors, Tegan.

No stranger to loss, Tegan knows Elise’s pain. He knows fury, but when he slays his enemies it is with ice in his veins. He is perfect in his self-control, until Elise seeks his aid in her personal war. An unholy alliance is forged – a bond that will link them by blood and vow – and plunge them into a tempest of danger, desire, and the darkest passions of the heart . . .

My Thoughts:

I have enjoyed all three books in Lara Adrian’s series. However, there is something about Tegan that I love, which makes Midnight Awakeningmy favorite of the three books. Tegan has been in all three books. He, with Lucan, is one of the first generation of vampires. In Kiss of Midnight, he clashed with Lucan. In Kiss of Crimson, he meets Elise Chase and helps her when she learns that her son has turned Rogue. While their interaction is limited in the second book, their connection to each other was quite evident.

In this book, Tegan is reluctant to help Elise who has become somewhat of a vigilante. She left her Darkhaven group in order to hunt the Minions who were part of the drug ring responsible for her son’s death. However, she is weak due to the fact that her vampire mate has been dead for several years and because she hasn’t had any vampire blood to drink in the ensuing years. She needs Tegan’s help. Although Tegan is reluctant, they do work together to try and unravel an evil plot.
