His enemies captured Edmund when he
foolishly ran off the night he received the surge of power
Auriculusí death gave him. He finds himself in a dungeon,
God knows where, being tortured for secrets that he is
unable to reveal, because what the torturers seek isnít
something Edmund can tell, much less show. That, however,
is no deterrent to his captors who are convinced that Edmund
The Fitz Clare clan doesnít plan on
waiting for the safe return of their patriarch. Estelle,
the unofficial leader of the family, has decided to go after
Edmund as she is having extremely lucid dreams that are
slowly revealing clues to Edmundís whereabouts. The men,
Graham and Ben, Edmundís grown sons, have no intention of
letting Estelle run off on her own to rescue their father,
which means, of course, that Sally will be off with them as
well. Now with this small family army in tow, they set off
to Europe to track down Edmund.
However, fate has plans for them that
they never counted on Ė Graham becoming an Upyr to
save his father and then thereís the addition of the
mysterious Pen to their group. Will they reach Edmund in
time or will they be too late in spite of all their efforts?
Now that Edmund is home safe and sound,
they have retreated to an old family home in order to help
Edmund come to terms with the fall out of his rescue and his
ever-increasing powers. Not much seems to be going Edmundís
way and he is slowly, but surely driving Estelle away Ė the
only one that will ultimately help him come back to himself.
In the meantime, attacks of
unconscionable brutality have been occurring in America that
Graham and Edmund suspect are the acts of Edmundís captors.
Edmund is unable to go with such an unstable control over
himself, although Graham, Ben and Sally are more than
willing to go in his stead to put a stop to the atrocities
occurring. But what do they find once they reach America?
None other than Pen, in the middle of it all, and involved
in a secret organization created to protect humans from
horrors such as these. In the end, Graham must decide if he
trusts Pen, and himself, enough to have her along on this
mission to save humanity from the depravities occurring.
In the end, they might have to
sacrifice it all to triumph, but will they be willing or
able to do so?
Breaking Midnight and
Saving Midnight brings this epic tale that Emma
Holly began in Kissing Midnight in such a
spectacular fashion that will not only wrap you in the
sensuality of the characters, but also have you on the edge
of your seat as the mystery and fast paced action rocket
explosively from the first page. Edmund continues to be a
fascinating man, full of contradictions and vulnerability.
Estelle becomes, almost by default, the leader of the Fitz
Clare clan and becomes the driving force behind Edmundís
daring and deadly risky rescue. The real surprise within
both of these novels is the revelation of Edmundís children
Ė Graham, Ben and Sally. Graham is reveled to be a man of
strength that is willing to go to any length to protect his
family, even so far as becoming an Upyr, something he
previously had reviled. Ben and Sally, inevitably, become
each otherís strength as they unite as a couple and the
gifts they have received from their proximity to Edmund are
revealed. However, the real surprise in these novels is
Pen. The previously vacuous girl-child sheds her dilettante
persona and shows herself to be a commando of sorts, more
than ready and able to engage in battle against the evil
Upyr. As expected from Emma Holly, Breaking
Midnight and Saving Midnight are full
of sensual moments that will have you reaching for a cool
glass of water which serves to not only heighten the
suspense and romance, but will leave every fan breathlessly
on the edge of their seat waiting for the next move! The set
up and detailed development of the Upyr world and the
Fitz Clare family is magnificent and it only serves to whet
the readerís appetite and leaving you wanting for more after
the last page is turned. Pick up Breaking Midnight
and Saving Midnight for a powerfully emotional
read that is action packed and steaming hot! Bravo Ms.
Holly, this trilogy is spectacular work!
