But when a war breaks out between Julian and Justine, a powerful Vampyre of the Nightkind council, they find themselves thrown together under treacherous circumstances… Kidnapped as leverage against Julian, Melly is convinced that her former lover won’t be rushing to her rescue.

But will they be able to ignore their complicated history, or will the fiery passion that once burned them blaze again?
Review by Sara
Midnight Kiss can be read as a stand alone novel. There will be a bit of back story from previous novels that you won't have the complete picture on, but there is enough recap done when needed that you will be ok. That said I personally think you would be CRAZY if you don't stop right here and go start the series right with book 1 Dragon Bound which I LOVED! Midnight Kiss is probably the first book of Thea's I didn't give a five. To be fair I'm not really sure if it's really anything to do with the book or I'm just personally done with Vampire stories. Don't get me wrong, I love the overall world of the Elders. The Djinn are my favorite well and of course Dragos. We have now had four vampire books. One was a novella but 3 of the eight full length novels have now had a vampire! Ugghh! I really hope we are done with the vampires for now. Midnight Kiss was good I'm looking forward to the next book Shadow's End which I've already pre-ordered.
