Loved it

What did you like most about Defy the Dawn?

I Loved Absolutely everything about it, Lara Adrian never disappoints with this series, I'm hopelessly addicted lol

How could the performance have been better?

Often times listening to Hillary Huber is a little like listening to nails down a chalk board
but because I love the series so much I'm willing to suffer. perhaps one day the publishers will take pity an employ someone like Jim Frangione for future audio's

Great Series! Good Narration!

Love this series, and would recommend all the books. I listened to the story and the narrator did a great job. Definitely give it a listen. I would start at the beginning to get the full picture, but it's not completely necessary since each book is about a different couple. Despite, the 3 stars, I still really enjoyed this story. I'm just basing the rating against the other books I've read in the series, and this one didn't quite pull me in as the other books have. Entertaining story, but didn't quite live up to the storylines of the past books. It's great to see other Breed members from the past books though! This one starts out with a sensual, passionate dance with some buildings blowing up, so that's exciting! I liked both Brynne and Zael, and I love the whole breedmate bonding scenario. Brynne did have too much of a pity party attitude though, which became annoying at times. She's too maudlin. She would push Zael away, then wallow about it, so I would've liked to see her own her issues more. Loved the passion between them, and Zael is a sweetheart. Overall, a good story that kept me reading. Excellent series!

One Mixed Up Woman

I really enjoyed this book. Bryn and Zael have a pretty convoluted story but they find each other in the end. Poor Bryn just needs to figure out herself first.

A fun adventure

Defy the dawn was a fun adventure and I really liked our hero and heroine.
The narrator did a great job giving each character their own unique voice and the story flowed together nicely.
A read read/listen for any paranormal romance fan.
Can easily be read as a stand-alone if you haven’t read the other books in the series

Love my Breed stories

Another great one. Can't wait till the next story. Hilary always does a great job with narration. I read the book a long time ago but it's never the same if I don't have Hilary to narrate it. Happy Reading!!!

The story didn't seem complete

This is the first novel, in the series, that didn't end with some sort of resolution, for the main conflict. This novel was more in line with the novellas, in that it focused mainly on the developing relationship between the Hero and Heroine. (Which honestly, got a little cheesy)

There was an escalation in the conflict between the Order and the queen of the Atlantis and the Order and Opes Nostrom (I'm sure I butchered that spelling) but these conflicts were just left hanging. There is no clear direction given for the next novel, as there has been in the past. The novel just seem to be cut off; 2 or 3 hours early. I hope the wait for the next chapter is not long.

Not the best in the series

Usually an automatic buy for me, I was disappointed. The story was disjointed and lacked any real chemistry between the main characters

Loving this series 😁

Atlantians are in the mix. Looking forward to see how this story arc is going to progress. Really enjoy Hilary Huber’s narration and hope she gets to do them all.
