When we last saw Andreas Reichen, his home was destroyed. The Darkhaven community within his compound had been decimated. Every man, woman and child killed like worthless creatures, his dear friend Helene turned into a minion who led the attackers to his sanctuary. He had nothing left to live for except vengeance.

Now that he knows who is responsible for the attack, he will not rest until they have paid for their crimes. He is not content to let the Order handle it. He must carry out this revenge in person. As the guilty parties perish, one by one, he knows that there is only one person left to punish. It is his old enemy Wilhelm Roth. One person stands in his way Claire the only woman he ever loved, and walked away from. As Roth's wife, she will know how to find him.

Claire Roth enjoys being Wilhelm's wife. The power he wields in the Darkhaven community gives her plenty of opportunities to serve. The fact that they rarely see each other is an added bonus. Claire knows that he chose her for selfish reasons, and she accepted him because she was hurt by Andreas' rejection. She does not even recognize the man that Andreas has become.

Ashes of Midnight is the latest installment in the Midnight Breed series, and it is full of fire. The passion that burned so brightly between Andreas and Claire has never been extinguished. The barriers between them will come crashing down as Wilhelm's evil deeds are revealed. The Breed warriors will need Andreas' help if they are to locate the captive Ancient and stop the plot to create an army of GenOne warriors.

Readers will be swept up in the emotional reunion between Claire and Andreas. They will be riveted by the non-stop action. The series is continuing into dangerous territory, and not everyone may escape unscathed.
