'Edge of Dawn,' by Lara Adrian
**Twenty years after the terror of First Dawn—when mankind learned that vampires lived secretly among them—the threat of violence reigns as the two species struggle to coexist. 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.
Raised among the Order, Mira has always believed in the warrior’s code of swift—and even lethal—justice. But the one thing she desires more than the Order’s hard-won acceptance is Kellan Archer, a sexy but troubled Breed fighter. In love with him since childhood, Mira once broke through his tough exterior during an unexpected night of rapture, but the next day he mysteriously disappeared, never to return.
Kellan didn’t think he would ever see Mira again—or have to confront the truth of why he left. After abandoning the Order years ago, he now leads a band of human rebels intent on carrying out their own vigilante rule of law. Yet a high-profile kidnapping assignment brings him face-to-face with the past he sought to avoid, and the striking woman he has tried desperately to forget. And as tensions mount and the risk of bloodshed grows, Kellan and Mira must take sides—between the competing missions that dominate their lives, and the electrifying passion that claims their hearts.**
Mira was first introduced in Veil of Midnight, one of my most favorite & most memorable novels thus far within the Midnight Series. Even though I've purchased the rest of the novels completing my collection from this point on; however, I definitely have some catching up to do before Edge of Dawn is released. Nevertheless, I undoubtedly know for a fact I will definitely be enjoying the journey on discovering what occurs to the Order, and what road blocks will be placed within their path.
A special Thank You goes out to Ms. Adrian for writing such memorable characters, who we the reader take within our hearts. As we treasure them the only way we know how, as priceless artifacts! Unobtainable to the ordinary-minded individuals around us who DO NOT possess ONE literary bone within their body. . . Who would ridicule us as NOTHING more than a NERD, GEEK, or BOOKWORM!!
I AM PROUD TO BE ALL OF THE ABOVE, for I've had the opportunity to meet such wonderful & amazing people within the literary world!! People who possess the same passions as I do!!
