5 Star Review – Born of Darkness (Hunter Legacy #1) by Lara Adrian

5 Star Review – Born of Darkness (Hunter Legacy #1) by Lara Adrian














Midnight Breed – Hunter Legacy Book 1

New York Times bestselling author Lara Adrian introduces the first novel in a thrilling new vampire romance series set in the darkly seductive Midnight Breed paranormal story world.

As a former assassin in the Hunter program, Asher is one of a small group of Gen One Breed vampires who survived the horrors of a madman’s laboratory and the cruelty of the training that made him one of the most lethal beings in existence. Now, twenty years after his escape from those hellish origins, Asher is a loner whose heart is as cold as his skills are merciless. But when he thwarts a killing under way in the middle of the desert outside Las Vegas, Asher meets a beautiful woman who draws him into a deadly game against powerful enemies—one that will test both his skills and his tarnished honor.

Naomi Fallon is used to getting out of dicey situations. Orphaned as a child after her mother’s murder, she didn’t survive twenty-six years on the street without using up most of her nine lives. But when her latest caper lands her in the Mojave against a Vegas gangster’s henchman, she’s certain her number is up.

Then he appears—immense, brutal, and far from human. Naomi’s never needed anyone’s help, least of all one of the Breed. But after one risk too many, only a man with Asher’s skills can keep her safe. Yet the solitary, seductively handsome vampire has enemies of his own, and a secret that will not only shatter her faith in him but her heart, proving what she’s feared all along—that trust is only an illusion and love may be the sharpest weapon of all.














Lara Adrian kicks off a new series with Born of Darkness and does so with two unforgettable characters that will intrigue you and have you glued to the pages till you finish.

I loved this book. No big surprise there as I’m a long time reader of this author and would read anything she wrote. What I loved most about this book was the sheer stubbornness of both the main characters in Asher and Naomi. It’s rare to see this trait in both main characters and not only did I fall head over heels for them, I am already salivating for the next Hunter Legacy book.

This pairing was so not what I expected and so was the setting of Las Vegas, when I picked up the book and I love that after all these years I can still be surprised by what the author comes up with. I never thought a breed warrior and a thief breedmate would go together, but they do and they are molten hot.

Lara Adrian mixes romance, intrigue, suspense, Breed lore and heart in just the right formula to give us the reader an unputdownable read, again.

Throw in an adorable able dog in Sam who totally tries to steal the page and a bunch of kids who tore my heart to pieces with what they have been through and where they end up and I’m really not kidding when I say it’s unputdownable.

The Hunter Legacy is another spin-off of the hugely popular Midnight Breed novels and while the legends and lore have been laid with the previous books, the author has done an amazing job of keeping the stories connected but giving this book a fresh take and voice. Like I said, I can’t wait for more and to see another Hunter meet his match.
