(DARKER AFTER MIDNIGHT) BY [ADRIAN, LARA](AUTHOR)PAPERBACK - Lara Adrian Ah, Chase. We had glimpses that he was still a good guy in #9, but he really came through in this one. Though I wanted to smack him really, really hard when he tried to leave again. And Tavia... what a strong female character. Her world was turned upside down and she handled it with aplomb and grace.

I was so afraid when I finished this that the series was over. Between the epilogue and the note to her readers at the end, it sounded like she thought she was done. But there were still so many questions to answer. What about Jenna? What about the other females? What about the Atlanteans? How would life be now for the Breed since they've been outed by Dragos? And I'm still not convinced the Ancient actually died in Alaska a few books ago. So I was very happy to see that there are two more to-be-named books on Ms. Adrian's series page and I found an interview where she said two more are contracted, but she has ideas to keep it going for a while. I could see that maybe the series could be wrapped up in two more, but considering she introduced new ideas in this one, I can see that she could keep introducing new ideas and story arcs

All in all, another great installment to the series. I can't wait to find out what the next one will be about. All of the Order males are mated, though there are a couple of recent additions to the "family" that could use some love. Plus all these mysteries to be resolved.
