A warrior trained in bullets and blades, Renata cannot be bested by any man---vampire or mortal. But her most powerful weapon is her extraordinary psychic ability---a gift both rare and deadly. Now a stranger threatens her hard-won independence---a golden-haired vampire who lures her into a realm of darkness…and pleasure beyond imagining. A combat-loving adrenaline junkie, Nikolai dispenses his own justice to enemies of the Breed---and his latest quarry is a ruthless assassin. One woman stands in his way: the seductive, cool-as-ice bodyguard, Renata. But Renata's powers are put to the test when a loved one, a child, is threatened and she's forced to turn to Niko for help. As the two join forces, as desire fans the flames of a deeper hunger, Renata's life is under siege by a man who offers the exquisite pleasure of a blood bond---and a passion that could save or doom them both forever.

Unexpectedly Sweet & Engaging
I've enjoyed re-listening to many bookmarked portions of the story.
Renata is by far unique to the Breed series to date. She's strong-minded, strong-willed, and a powerful female character. Renata is real... she's had a difficult life and has learned not to count on anyone. If not for Mira, the innocent child she shares difficult circumstances with, she would have no purpose. Niko manages to peel back the many protective layers she uses to shield herself and develop a true partnership.
Huber does a great job acting out some intense scenes in the story. I love her interpretation of accents as well as the consistency of their voices.
Initially, the story unfolds more slowly. Once Renata breaks Niko out (about Chapter 16), you won't want to put the story down.
Along with Midnight Rising (Book 4), Veil of Midnight (Book 5) is pivotal to the overall series' story. The reader really begins to understand the dark plans of Dragos.
