Born of Darkness (Hunter Legacy #1) Reviews
couldn't put this down!! I don't know how she does it,but Lara hasn't ever disappointed me with her stories yet..I don't think she will...I'm not going to go into specific details as I received this as an ARC and can't give out any spoilers,I can say you won't regret reading it...
I'll admit I have HIGH expectation from Lara. The Midnight Breed is one of my absolute favorite PNR series and the Hunters' stories is something I wondered about especially since "Deeper than Midnight" (Hunter and Corrine's book). I wanted to learn more about them, what they went through, to see them grow into independent men. In this one I felt we got a lot more of Naomi's story than Asher (which was mostly revealed to us in the end).
Asher have been living a life of mostly solitude since he wa ...more
1.5*. This was such a disappointment, it was skirting the 1* mark but I couldn't quite do that to the author of one of my favourite series. I haven't any issues with the writing, or even the plot but the non-romance. To call what happens between the main leads cannot be called a romance. No emotional depth, no chemistry, the h was particularly annoying all equated to no romance. I sincerely hope the next book will be a lot better, because we know Lara Adrain can do a lot better. Just look at the ...more
LOVED this kickoff to her new series!
I liked Asher, the Gen One Breed vampire, quite a bit. Silent, broody, deadly. I can't say the same for Naomi. In fact, she ruined the book for me. There was not a single thing about her that I found that I liked. There was zero chemistry between her and Asher, and TBH, I was glad. He deserved better.
Storywise, this is a 2, but I'm bumping up to a 3 because I've always enjoyed Adrian's work in the past. I'll give book two in this new series a try. Just hope it's better.
Born of Darkness is the first book in Lara Adrian's new Hunter Legacy series, a spin of set in the same world as her bestselling Midnight Breed books. Each of these stories are going to be standalone paranormal romances so you don't have to be familiar with the original series to enjoy them but longtime fans will appreciate the chance to spend more time in this world and to find out what happened to the many Gen One Breed Hunters bred and trained by Dragos.
It's been 20 years since Asher escaped ...more
Okay so it wasn't everything I was expecting it to be but it could have been much worse. I love Lara Adrian and to be honest, I had not read one of her books in quite a while so Born of Darkness was just what I needed to start new with her. A new series, albeit a spin-off of her Midnight Breed series, you can definitely read it without previously having read the other one. I stopped the MB series at book 7 if I remember correctly and I can say for sure, you can read Born of Darkness without havi ...more
Set in Adrian’s Midnight Breed world, but having very little connection to the Order, Born of Darkness revels in the beauty that is a member of the Breed with his Breedmate. In this book we see Asher, a Gen One warrior born in Dragos’ lab, save a woman from certain death out in the Mojave desert. The woman, Naomi, had been taken to the remote location to be killed by some security goonies from a Las Vegas casino who caught Naomi stealing money from their boss, Slater. Naomi has a personal vendet ...more
