The only group preserving the fragile harmony is the Order, an elite cadre of Breed warriors dedicated to protecting humans and vampires alike. And in this precarious world of torn loyalties and shattered trust, Mira, a fiery squad captain, finds that every fight bears an intensely personal cost.

We get to see lots of the old characters in this book as well as some new ones Because we read that the order has a new otherworldly enemy and they all have to come together to take them down.
I guess that better be all I tell you about the story, I dont want to give to much away.But iv skimmed round the outline in hope that it draws you in to this wonderful story.
Im a big fan of the Breed series and im always so happy when a new book comes out But I have to say I had my doubts about this one because its set in the future, 20 years on from the last book and I couldnt see how it was going to work. but I pushed through and read it and im happy to say I loved it. I loved seeing that Mira had turned into a spunky young woman and that she was able to fight along side the men and hold her own. and Kellen is no longer that geeky little boy, and oh boy has he turned in to a MAN!!. I thought I would struggle with these grown up characters because I loved the kids so much but Know I could still see the kids there even with the changes.
Lara is an amazing writer, I dont think there is many authors out there that could jump 20 years into the future and still keep you interested. She has managed to make me fall in love with the new characters but keep you loving the old ones. I find with some long series that the books loose something along the way and I end up falling out of love with them, but I really dont think this series is going to be one of them. there is some new characters that I really cant wait to read more about.
