Fade to Midnight is the long awaited conclusion to Shannon McKenna's McCloud Brother series. It features the long lost missing brother Kev who is Sean's twin, whom they believed has been dead all these years. Sean troubled by nightmares believes his twin is still alive. Kev is alive but has no recollection of his former life. As a self protective mechanisim his brain has chosen to forget the torture Kev experienced at the hands of a mad scientist.

Fade to Midnight starts out with a fairly intriguing premise. Kev McCloud can't remember is past but for some reason he continually pictures a beautiful girl, whom he deems his "angel". He discovers that his angel is actually a real person, Edie Parrish. She has made him the main character in her popular graphic novel. Edie had horrible experiments done on her as a child. These experiments eventually lead to her psychic abilities which come out through her drawings. Edie has always been shy and a disappointment to her father.

The best part of Fade to Midnight is in the beginning when Kev and Edie first meet. They come together in an emotional and fiery explosion. If you have read McKenna before than youll know what I am talking about. Kev immediately knows that Edie is the woman for him and he must have her and protect her at all costs. He struggles with wanting to keep Edie safe and do what is best for her, yet he can't seem to keep his hands off of her which places them in danger. Oh, what a conundrum.

Unfortunately, after Kev and Edie get separated from each other because of the bad guys, the book takes a downturn. I felt like things got dragged out too much. The bad guys are so completely over the top eeeevil. Actually, why we are on the subject, everything about this book is over the top. Which can be great in small doses, but in this book at close to 500 pages it got old after a while. In the beginning it is exciting and addictive but by the end of the book I was uninterested and ready for it to be over.

I think fans of the McCloud Brother series will not want to miss this conclusion. But do keep in mind that Fade to Midnight is not without its share of problems.

I wish there could be more in this series, but I'm sad to say the McCloud crew will be sadly missed! I knew Kev's story would be unforgetable...and it was! The story was action packed, filled with raw emotion like McKenna grabs every time, and real love and relationships. If you are looking for frills and lace during a romantic suspense...keep looking. If you like hardcore people with true feelings and the worse villians that this book - them in order though! This is the final chapter and you will not love the characters as much out of order.

An intriguing plot, interesting characters, but the use of crass and foul language seriously detracts from the entertainment potential of this book. I was rather disappointed that the author could think of no better adjective than the f-bomb throughout the entire book. I would like to read more about her characters (there are several other books in this series), but I won't because of the language the author prefers to use.

Having read all the McCloud brothers books thus far, I have to say this was my least favorite. Ir was good to finally find out what happened to the twin brother Kev. But I did find myself skipping over the parts having to do with the Club"O" sadistic portions of this book. I realize as a stand alone book the parts were probably necessary..but having read the others I already had the background of the dadistic club"O" and needed no furhter info to do with them. It's along read with over 600 pages. I don't think I will read the next one in the series having to do with extended members of the family, I believe I've had enough of club"O" for awhile. I would still recommend it as a good read, even as a stand alone.
