Enjoyable sixth in series,
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Ashes of Midnight (Midnight Breed) (Taschenbuch)
'Ashes of Midnight' is book six in the Midnight Breed series, a story about vampires very much in the mould of J R Ward's 'Black Dagger Brotherhood'. Nonetheless these are still enjoyable books to read, if sometimes feeling rather derivative.
'Ashes of Midnight' focuses on Andreas Reichen, the German vampire who appeared in several previous books. The action takes place initially in Germany as we discover that Reichen didn't die in an attack on his Darkhaven but has instead been wreaking vengeance on those involved in killing his family. He has long kept the secret of the strange ability he has - that of becoming in effect a fireball - but he is now using it to its maximum in order to destroy those who have blood on their hands. He now has just one person left to kill, the instigator of the attack on his Darkhaven, Wilhelm Roth.
Unfortunately for Reichen, his plans for Roth's destruction quickly go awry when he meets up again with Roth's wife and his former lover, Claire. He doesn't know what Claire knows about Roth's activities but finds himself being drawn back into her life. When it seems that Roth is tangled up with things even more important than Reichen's own vengeance he and Claire have to seek the help of the vampire Order. But can Reichen avoid his probable future death, and what chance does he have with Claire, who is mated to another?
Reichen's pyrokinesis skill added a certain amount of interest to this story, and the romance with Claire was well written, but overall this book left me a little cold. I found Reichen's singleminded and violent quest for vengeance rather distasteful and his and Claire's behaviour wasn't always that sensible. There is much to like about this series and this story was a reasonable enough read but it wasn't in any way a gripping read.
