As we know from the end of the last book, every man, woman and child in the hero's Darkhaven has been wiped out. This book is about Andreas' journey of revenge and personal destruction. Along the way he finds Claire his lost love [and wife of William Roth, the man who gave the order for the destruction.] The h/h and the action move to Boston and the Order uses the heroine's abilities to track down Roth and his ally Dragos [the chief villain that the Order has been pursuing for several books].

The latest Midnight Breed book is a good read, but will never be my favorite in the series. I personally don't care for plots where the 'jump start' for the story requires the death of friends/family so the hero is sufficiently motivated to destroy the bad guys. It works but it reads too much like the evening news... On the other hand, Lara Adrian has done her usual fine job of making us care for the characters and drawing us along through the story - for me it was a page turner, but probably won't be re-read often.

Order really matters in this series...
