Now that Dragos, a rare Generation One vampire long thought dead, has finally been located, the Order is determined to stop the traitor's plans for world domination. Unfortunately, Breed warrior ranks remain small. The well-populated Dark Haven vampire societies refuse to acknowledge the Order, let alone support their recent claims of a new and dangerous threat to the entire secretive Breed society. But when other Gen One vampires are ruthlessly exterminated by shadowy, unstoppable assassins, the Dark Havens can no longer ignore the mounting evidence.

When the Order learns that Sergei Yakut is likely Dragos's next target they dispatch Breed warrior Nikolai to investigate. But getting an audience with Yakut means getting through the defences of his cool-as-ice bodyguard, Renata. The breedmate's psychic abilities are formidable, but each time she uses her power, she pays a heavy physical price. She is determined to escape her forced servitude to her cruel master. But that's impossible as long as Yakut holds the life of a gifted young child in the palm of his hand. However, Renata realises Nikolai might be her chance to turn the tides. Underneath his swaggering, adrenalin junkie exterior she recognises the honourable warrior that Niko truly is, one who is willing to set aside his own mission to rescue a child. But when traitors within Yakut's own camp show their true colours, Renata and Niko find themselves not only caught in the middle of a bloody power struggle, but also hunted by Dragos's fanatically loyal minions.

Lara Adrian continues upping the ante in her continually evolving series that features one of the most intriguing mythologies in vampire romance. Veil of Midnight showcases another fine cast of dark and edgy characters, plenty of inventive plot twists, another international locale and a sizzling romance between leads Renata and Nikolai - a heady combination that is sure to satisfy the many fans of this stellar series.
