Beschreibung

A woman driven by blood. A man thirsting for vengeance.
A place where darkness and desire meet...

As night falls, Claire Roth flees, driven from her home by a fiery threat that seems to come from hell itself. Then, from out of the flames and ash, a vampire warrior emerges. He is Andreas Reichen, her onetime lover, now a stranger consumed by vengeance. Caught in the cross fire, Claire cannot escape his savage fury-or the hunger that plunges her into his world of eternal darkness and unending pleasure.

Nothing will stop Andreas from destroying the vampire responsible for slaughtering his Breed brethren . . . even if he must use his former lover as a pawn in his deadly mission. Blood-bonded to his treacherous adversary, Claire can lead Andreas to the enemy he seeks, but it is a journey fraught with danger-and deep, unbidden desires. For Claire is the one woman Andreas should not crave, and the only one he's ever loved. A dangerous seduction begins-one that blurs the lines between predator and prey, and stokes the flames of a white-hot passion that may consume all in its path. . . .

Ashes of Midnight ist Band 6 der Midnight-Breed-Reihe und nach meiner persönlichen Enttäuschung (= langweilig) mit Band 5 "Veil of Midnight" war ich sehr gespannt, was mich hier erwartet. Ich habe das Buch soweit sehr genossen, auch wenn es in meinen Augen nicht ganz mit Band 1 und 2 mithalten kann. Aber das Phänomen habe ich oft mit Büchern einer Serie, also muss das wohl so sein :) Das einzige was mich persönlich richtig gestört hat ist die Tatsache, dass ich mir Andreas Reichen so überhaupt nicht vorstellen kann. Bei den anderen Jungs habe ich die Beschreibungen gelesen und ich hatte ein Bild von der jeweiligen Person im Kopf. Aber bei Andreas hat das irgendwie überhaupt nicht geklappt; der Mann ist in meinem Kopf immer noch gesichtslos. Das mag aber vielleicht auch daran liegen, dass in den vorigen Büchern immer irgendwie an ihm vorbeigelesen hab, da er mir sehr farblos erschien. Farblos ist er jetzt nicht mehr, aber wie gesagt: mir fehlt immer noch sein Bild Ansonsten ist's eine schmachtige Liebesgeschichte um Andreas & Claire, allerdings mit dem Problem, dass Claire eigentlich schon einen Mate hat, nämlich den mächtigen Wilhelm Roth. Und der ist überhaupt nicht damit einverstanden, dass Andreas wieder in das Leben von Claire zurückgekommen ist. Der rote Faden mit der Gen One Zuchtstation von Dragos wurde ebenfalls weiter erzählt. Das Buch endet was das anbelangt auch sehr dramatisch und "offen" und das stellt sicher, dass wohl noch mehr Romane folgen werden :) Schön fand ich auch, dass die anderen Jungs und ihre Mädels alle mehr oder weniger große Auftritte hatten; das ist ja etwas was ich z. B. bei der BDB total vermisse (schon 3 Bücher ohne Rhage + Mary :( - aber ich schweife ab). Ja, aber hier sind wieder alle dabei und kämpfen vereint im Team und das finde ich total klasse :). Also von mir gibt es 4 von 5 Sternen und ich warte dann mal sehnsüchtig auf Band 7 "Shades of Midnight"; das soll angeblich im Januar 2010 erscheinen.

    BERLIN, GERMANY

    The vampire had no idea that death awaited him in the darkness.

    His senses were overloaded with need, his hands and arms full of a half-dressed redhead who pawed at him with barely restrained lust. Too fevered to notice they weren't alone in his Darkhaven bedchamber, he willed open the carved double doors and guided his eager, panting prey inside. The woman teetered on a pair of tall heels, laughing as she twisted away from him and wagged a finger in front of her face.

    "Hans, you fed me too mush champagne," she slurred, stumbling into the dark room. "My head's all woozy."

    "It will pass." The German vampire's words were _sluggish, too, though not from the alcohol that had inebriated his unsuspecting American companion. His fangs were no doubt filling his mouth, saliva flooding over his tongue in anticipation of feeding.

    He tracked her with deliberate movements as he closed the doors behind him and prowled toward her. His eyes glowed like embers, transforming from their natural color to something otherworldly. Although the woman seemed oblivious to the change coming over him, the vampire held his head low as he approached her, careful to conceal the telling heat of his bloodthirsty gaze. Except for that shuttered amber glow and the dim twinkle of stars outside the tall windows overlooking the Darkhaven estate's private grounds, there was no light in the room. Then again, being one of the Breed, he could see well enough without it.

    So could the one who came to kill him.

    Enveloped in shadows across the large chamber, a dark gaze watched as the vampire grabbed his blood Host from behind and got down to business. The first pungent copper whiff of the human's pierced vein made the observer's fangs erupt from his gums in reflexive response. He hungered, too, more urgently than he wanted to admit, but he had come here for a greater purpose than to serve his own base needs.

    He had come for vengeance.

    For justice.

    It was that overriding mission that held Andreas Reichen's feet firmly to the floor as the other vampire drank greedily, blindly, across the room. He waited, patient only because he knew this male's death would bring him one step closer to fulfilling the vow he'd made some twelve weeks ago . . . the night his world had disintegrated into a pile of ash and rubble.

    Reichen's restraint was held on a threadbare leash. Inside he churned with the heat of his anger. His bones felt like hot iron rods beneath his skin. His blood raced through his body, liquid fire that seared him from scalp to heels. Every muscle and cell within him screamed for retribution-screamed it with a fury that bordered on nuclear meltdown.

    Not here, he warned himself. Not that.

    The price would be steep if he gave in to the full measure of his rage, and by God, this son of a bitch wasn't worth it.

    Reichen held that explosive part of himself at bay, but the effort came a fraction of a second too late. The fire in him was already swelling, burning through the fragile tethers of his self-control . . .
    The other vampire suddenly lifted his head from where he'd been feeding at the woman's neck. He drew in a sharp breath through his nose, then grunted, animalistic . . . alarmed. "Someone is here."
    "What'd you say?" she murmured, still drowsy from his bite as he sealed her wound with his tongue then shoved her away from him. She staggered forward, huffing a couple of choice curses under her breath. The instant her sluggish gaze lit on Reichen, a scream ripped from her throat. "Oh, my God!"
    Feeling his eyes smoldering with the amber fire of his rage, his fangs tearing through his gums in readiness of the fight to come, Reichen took a single step out of the shadows.

    The woman screamed again, hysteria rising in her wild, panicked eyes. She looked to her companion for protection, but the vampire had no further use of he
