The Midnight Breed Character Guide

Part human, part otherworldly, the Breed has lived among humankind for thousands of years, maintaining a tentative peace built on secrecy, power, and the dark justice carried out by the formidable warriors of the Order.

But now, a blood war within the race is set to ignite. Vampires are going Rogue in startling numbers, feeding without discretion, killing humans in the streets. It is up to the Order to stop the spreading threat of Rogue domination–and in so doing, each of the warriors will be forced to confront private demons, darkest secrets, deepest fears. Some will know triumph, some will know loss, but each warrior can count on one thing: Love, when it finds him, will often come at the worst possible moment, with the least likely woman . . . and it will bring each of these powerful males to his knees.

Life as everyone knows it changes dramatically when the Breeds make their presence known to the world at large. The threat of violence reigns as the two species struggle to coexist. The only group preserving the fragile harmony is the Order, an elite cadre of Breed warriors dedicated to protecting humans and vampires alike. Only uniformed officials with the Joint Urban Security Taskforce Initiative Squad (JUSTICE), a government directed police detail comprised of hand-picked Breed and human officers were licensed to carry unconcealed arms or use deadly force in non-military situations.

Pretty much all credit for the information listed here goes to PhoenixFyre. I have a few secondary character to add, but she very kindly gave me her own stats and notes to create this guide, and it is much appreciated.

Wine, Indigo and Gold – aroused

Deep Blood Red and Gold – urgent need to feed

    Kal,

    it looks great. Thank you. I am working on putting together Black Dagger Brotherhood. I am almost done. Just adding some newer characters.

    • Hey Robin…that sounds great! Looking forward to seeing it.

      • Robin vonKleist said:

        JR Ward’s Lover at Last comes out next month, so I might wait to finish the stats since she may add some new characters from what the review says in RT Magazine. But what I have is almost done. Just reviewing the stats from each book.

      • Take your time – I am working on a few little ones (er, and a big one) too. They are time consuming little suckers, aren’t they?

  2. Robin vonKleist said:

    Kal,

    I just finished reading Edge of Darkness and totally loved it. I was wondering if Lara could pull off advancing 20 years in the future of the second arc of the series. And wow, she did an excellent job on it. She had me at the edge of my seat pretty much from the beginning and I never wanted this book to end.

    Anyway, I had to add more characters and information on my stats so if you can email me again, I will send you the revisions. I put them all in alpha order so it would be easier for you and only highlighted the light blue for the additions or changes.

    I don’t know if you read Midnight Breed series yet but it is one of my favorites with JR Wards, Jeaniene Frost and Sherrilyn Kenyon’s series. I am now reading Kresley Coles series and enjoying them as you said I would. After that will be Nalini’s series.

    • kaleigha said:

      Hey Robin…you have been busy. I have read all of the Midnight Breeds books, but to be fair I think that I need to do a total re-read of the whole series. I always enjoy the story while I am reading it, but then it doesn’t stay with me for some reason. I think a re-read of them one after the other would get me more involved in the world.

      Thanks again for taking the time to send over your info. You can e-mail it to wickedscribes@gmail.com

      Glad you are liking Kresley, and I really hope you love Nalini, too.

      Kal

    Kal,

    It me Robin again. I have to ask a favor from you. Can you send me a copy of the Midnight Breed character stats I sent you? My computer lost several files and my stats was one of them and I just added more characters from Edge of Darkness so I need all of them together again, lol. I would appreciate it. Thank you sooooo much.

    • kaleigha said:

      Hey Robin…no problem at all. I have been so busy trying to get the new releases updated that I haven’t had a chance to work on the guides at all (I am always whining I am behind, but this time I am waaaay behind). Thanks again.

  4. Robin vonKleist said:

    Hi Kal,
    Have you found a copy of my latest MB Character Bios from about a week ago? I ask if you could send me a copy that I sent you on “Word”. My computer lost the whole file and I need one to keep but, the newest one I sent you where I added the newest characters and additions from “Edge of Darkness”. I checked my email and haven’t received the copy yet. Thank you again.

    • kaleigha said:

      Hey Robin…I sent it off that night, but I will try sending it again. Here goes…

      • Hi Kal, There is no attachments so I haven’t received it yet.. Are you sending me a copy in “Word?”

        ________________________________

      • kaleigha said:

        Hey Robin…I don’t have Word. It seems to be a docx Office file, whatever that means. I will see if I can find a program to convert it to word and send it off again.

      • Hi Kal, docx is a “Word” program. You don’t have to convert it,lol. But it does need to be ‘attachment’ with the email. If you are not sure how to do it, let me know and I can help.

        ________________________________

      • kaleigha said:

        That is strange, since I have sent it as an attachment three times already. Not sure what is going on. You still didn’t get it?

      • kaleigha said:

        Let’s try again…

    • kaleigha said:

      Crap…forgot to add it that time. Duh.

  5. Robin vonKleist said:

    Kal,

    I will have to just wait till you update this list with the additional info I sent you. For some reason, it is not coming to me as an attachment. When you do get a chance to update it, can you let me know by emailing me? I would appreciate it. That’s ok. When I lost this character bios, I also lost my Black Dagger Brotherhood bios and have to totally redo it again, ugh! And that list was a huge one, lol.

    • That is really strange. What I am going to do is copy the info you gave me to a page, and you can copy and paste off of that. When you are done, I will deleted it and then use the info to update. I will call the page “for PhoenixFyre”, and add it to the Lara Adrian section. This is the link… http://wickedscribelaraadrian.wordpress.com/for-phoenixfyre/

      I have lost the guide info before, and that hurt. A lot. I actually lost one set – twice. Nasty.

      • I got it. Thank you so much. I really appreciate it. I will send a copy to my email address this way if anything happens to my computer it will be there always, lol. I did “Copy & Paste” it already so you can do what you need to with it. Thank you again. Back to my reading of Kresley Cole’s No Rest for the Wicked. Yum.

    Rio did not get his injuries during the atack that killed Conlan. Niko was with Conlan during that attack. Rio got his injuries during an explosion with the rest of the Order after Conlan was already dead. It was a setup by his breedmate, Eva. Meant to kill Lucan, but Rio took the biggest hit.

  7. Robin vonKleist said:

    Did I do that? Goodness, if so I am sorry. I know Rio was injured in an explosion in the cave they were to destroy that was part of the Ancient Tomb. That is also where he met Dylan.

  8. Robin vonKleist said:

    PS, Update. Still re-reading and putting together the Bio on BDB. I am only on the second book and it is huge so far so I will have to do a lot of break-downs, lol. But I am enjoying rereading the series. It is my all-time favorite. Just love JR Ward. I will also do her Fallen Angel series. I love doing this :)

    • kaleigha said:

      I know what you mean – they are time consuming, but it is great to re-enter those worlds looking for details. It never ceases to amaze me how much I missed when I read them for pleasure then go back and read for the guide. I always feel like I accomplished something when I get one finished – but updating when a new book comes out seems to take me forever.

      • Robin vonKleist said:

        Especially when a lot of new characters are being added. In JR’s new book Lover at Last which I haven’t read yet but have a signed copy, it seems that she has added quite a few new characters. We know that her next book out is from FA series is called Possession (love Jim hate Devina) and for the BDB series it will be called, “The King” which will be about Wrath and Beth having an heir and hopefully a conclusion about Xcor trying to steal the throne. It will be a full-length novel and JR wants to do a major novel on each main character again since it is years later besides writing for newer characters. She is also thinking about a ‘crossover’ with both series. Can’t wait. But I can’t wait for the novel on angel Lassiter. He is my baby. I absolutely love him. The one thing I have to say about BDB is you fall in love with each warrior, not just one. That is great writing and especially when you can reread a series and still love it even more.

      • kaleigha said:

        I am like that with the Psy/Changelings. Even in her last novella collection, there was a ton of new characters added since she focused on the San Gabriel den rather than the main den (since that is Cooper’s territory). She has the potential for literally dozens of more stories at this point, without ever adding another character.

        I do wonder about going back to do second books for the brothers, though. To be fair, life would’ve changed for them quite a bit in the years, but usually I am happy with them having their HEA at the end of their stories, and to make another full length book there has to be some sort of conflict or crisis arise. I guess I just like the happy to stay happy. Lassiter is the one I am hoping to get my hands on, too – I was actually expecting his book to be coming up quite soon. Any word yet on when?

  9. Robin vonKleist said:

    Here is her Spoiler at a book signing this past weekend. You’ll love it and anyone here that loves her books:

    Next book is about Wrath and Beth and is called The King – it will be about him having an heir…

    Beth’s pregnancy may be more in line with humans given she’s a half-breed

    We will see more of Murdher but it involves Xhex… more when the timing is right

    Saxton – Big keep reading! His Father!!!!!

    Rhage and Mary’s novella. JR is about 146 pages in, just has to finish it. (they want a child)….

    Lassiter will get a book when he’s ready – he opens up a whole story-line and she’s not sure whether he’ll feature in BDB or Fallen Angels (she didn’t not say both.

    She doesn’t know how Layla’s pregnancy will go – a KEEP READING

    How will it work with Qhuinn and Blay, Layla, Xcor and the baby – KEEEEEP REEEADING!!

    Qhuinn and Luchas return to their parent’s house, Qhuinn sees Luchas as a victim and we’ll see more of Luchas

    Lash WILL be back, she just doesn’t know when – EEP!!

    Is there a connection between Michael (Story of Son) and Murdher – answer “Duh!” but doesn’t know if it will be “seen” in a book.

    Did the SV create the Shadows – they are a subspecies that developed

    Assail – Warden thinks he’s awesome, she’s obsessed with him and his cousins are totally effin HOT!!

    There is a nexus with the Fallen Angels battle for good and the development of the BDB plotline – she thinks it could go either way but a crossover is logical

    Will we find out more about the glymera female who had an orgy with the Bastards – yes!

    Will Xcor turn on the Bastards for Layla – KEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP REEEEEEEEEEEADING!!!

    Will we find out about Butch and Manny’s father and if there are more kids – KEEEEEP REEEEEEEADING!!

    Will Butch be in another book? Yes, and we’ll see some closure for him and José

    Are they going to expand the rules for Brotherhood inductions? Yes and Blay, Payne and Xhex could be inducted in future

    Were there a lot of edits for the Blay and Qhuinn sex scenes? – There was nothing edited out.

    Are Tohr and Xcor brothers? Not saying a thing…

    Will we see Layla’s baby soon? Yes.

    Do we know about the coffins in the garage? Not yet but she *thinks* it may come up in The King

    That’s it till the next FA book comes out.

  10. Robin vonKleist said:

    PS. Forgot one more, lol.

    There WILL be more about Jane and V – she’s also talking to her publisher about revisiting each couple in full book form.

    I would myself like to see another one on Phury since his book didn’t do him justice. plus he is the Primale and it will be more interesting to see how things have changes so far by modernizing their lives and plus, we probably will meet more future HEA’s for future characters.

    • kaleigha said:

      Thanks for the info – she is great to keep the fandom in the loop like she does. I agree about Phury, too – he was my favorite of all the brothers, but his story did not do him justice. And to then see so very little of him in following books was even worse. I would love to see more of him.

  11. Robin vonKleist said:

    I would love to see more of Phury also and Revhenge. We don’t see enough of either of them since their books were out. Maybe that is why she is going to write more novels on them. we don’t see much of the Shadows either. Trez and iAm.

    • kaleigha said:

      It is tricky when a world gets so big – I guess you have to choose between going ahead with new stories and re-visiting past favorites. Like with the Breeds series – we don’t even know the names of most of the Breed children other than David Lyons, or what happened to previous couples, but there are still so many stories left to tell.

  12. Robin vonKleist said:

    I love series where the main characters come in and out of the series throughout. That is why I love JR Ward, Sherrilyn Kenyon and Lara Adrian. I get excited when they come back into certain scenes. I can’t picture not having my fix with Wrath, Lucan, or of course Acheron. The main leaders of the series.

    I haven’t gotten to the Breed series yet even though I heard it is fantastic. I belong to BDB/FA on yahoo groups and I heard about these books from other fans. That is what I love about that group. That is how I found so many series to read because of them. So, how is it going with the series anyway? I remember you were reading it.

    • kaleigha said:

      The Breeds are sort of a creature of their own. Some have a decent storyline, some not so much, but story is usually pretty secondary to the book. I can’t actually point out what it is about them – they are repetitive, filled with continuity errors, you need a calculator to keep track of the grammatical errors, and the character’s physical description constantly changes (sometimes even in the same book). And yet you still can’t wait for the next one. One of the mysteries of life. I just started story number 21, so that means I have 4 more books and 2 novellas to do. I took a break from it since I was trying to get caught up on some of the other guides, but felt like diving back in last night.

  13. Robin vonKleist said:

    Lol, I know what that feels like. Just as it was with the Midnight Breed. Edge of Darkness has added many new characters and additions to the stories because the Breed warriors now run compounds all over the world. The only new character we haven’t met yet but only heard about is Tegan’s son Micah.

    I do have a feeling the next book will be on Nathan and Carys Chase best friend Jordana. And Carys is with bad boy Rune which when Sterling Chase finds out will probably flip his lid, lol.

    I love the way Lara handled the second arc of this series and can’t wait to read more in the future.

    • kaleigha said:

      I do love to see how good authors can expand on their worlds well into a series. Just when you think there are no more interesting stories to tell, you get another whole offshoot to explore.

  14. Robin vonKleist said:

    Looks great Kal. Glad you added the new info. Did you end up reading the book yet? If so how did you like it?

    • kaleigha said:

      Thanks, Robin – much appreciated. I didn’t get there yet, but I do hope to soon. Mount TBR is high, and even though I have been trying to be good and control my random book buying, I am still getting swamped under the new releases. It is great, though (better than having nothing left to read, I figure).

  15. Robin vonKleist said:

    Yeah, I know what you mean with the new releases. I have them also and haven’t had a chance to read them myself, lol. Still rereading JR ward’s BDB and working on the character bio’s and then her FA series. The list is growing. A huge cast of characters both original, secondary, villain and people who pop in the books. But I will have it very organized to you alphabetically and info. and will go to her new book Lover at Last. The next FA book is Possession as you know but won’t be out till the fall.

    • kaleigha said:

      I always check when the next book is out when I am doing a guide and think “lots of time”, but I usually end up just getting the guide done right before the next new release.
