“They’re getting away.”
He and his teammates from the Order’s Rome command center had been in pursuit of the four blood-thirsty Rogues since their patrol had been alerted to the killing at the club. They had contained the situation before any of the other humans had realized what was going on, but their mission wouldn’t be over until they ashed the feral members of their own race.
“Split up,” he told his men. “Damn it, we can’t lose them! Close in from all sides.”
His comrade and good friend, Savage, grinned and gave a nod of his blond head before veering right to take one of the other winding alleys on Jehan’s command. The other warrior, a hulking, shaved-head menace called Trygg, made no acknowledgment to his team leader before vanishing into the darkness like a wraith to carry out the order.
Jehan sped like an arrow through the tight artery of the ancient street ahead of him, dodging slow-moving compact cars and taxis who were getting nowhere fast in the district that was clogged with tourists and club-hoppers even as the hour crept close to midnight.
The public out and about tonight was a mix of human and Breed civilians, something that would have been unheard of just twenty years ago, before the Breed’s existence had been revealed to mankind.
Now, in cities around the world, the two populations lived together openly. They worked together. Governed together. But their hard-won peace was fragile. All it might take was one horrific killing—like the one earlier tonight—to set off a global panic.
While every Breed warrior of the Order had pledged his blood and breath to prevent that from happening, others among mankind and the Breed were secretly—and not-so-secretly—instigating war.
Tonight’s Rogue attack had the stamp of conspiracy all over it. And it wasn’t the first. During the past few nights there had been a handful of others, in Rome and elsewhere in Europe. While it wasn’t unusual for one of Jehan’s kind to become irreversibly addicted to blood, the spate of recent slayings in all-too-public places by Rogues torqued up on some kind of Bloodlust-inducing narcotic had fingers pointing to the terror group called Opus Nostrum.
Just a few days ago, the Order had scored a staggering hit on Opus, taking out its newest leader, who’d been headquartered in Ireland. The cabal was hobbled for now, but its hidden members were many and their machinations seemed to know no bounds. They and all who served them had to be stopped, or the consequences were certain to be catastrophic.
About STROKE OF MIDNIGHT: A Midnight Breed Series Novella
If you aren't already a fan of Lara Adrian you will be once you read Stroke of Midnight. It's the perfect balance of suspense, paranormal and romance.
I've loved her Midnight Breed series since the beginning. They are so well written. You won't be able to put them down until you are finished.
I just love Jehan, he goes home planning on explaining to his family why he can't be with Seraphina. Of course nothing ever goes as we plan.
This story line might not be something new, but I think you'll like how Adrian wrote it. Even though this is a novella you really get to know the characters. Something that I count on in a novella. I love to have a full story. I will say that I've been very pleased with the books in the 1001 Dark Nights line.
It's been a while since I've read any of the books in the Midnight Breed series but after reading Stroke of Midnight I will have to read the few I have sitting on my shelf.
If you've read Stroke of Midnight or any other book by Lara Adrian I'd love to hear your thoughts. Thanks for stopping by and happy reading!
