Overview

Ecstasy in Darkness (Alien Huntress Series #5) by Gena Showalter


New York Times
bestselling sensation Gena Showalter enthralls with a dark, tantalizing world of humans, otherworlders, powers beyond imagining, and a seductive vampire undone by his insatiable hunger for one woman. . . .

Growing up poor on New Chicago’s meanest streets, Ava Sans had two options: be the predator or be the prey. No contest. Now, working for Alien Investigation and Removal, she’s been ordered to capture the biggest, baddest warrior of all—a vampire too beautiful to be real, with the abilityto manipulate time. Once the leader of the entire vampire army, McKell has been deemed savage and unstable, spurned even by his own kind.

To McKell, humans should be nothing more than sustenance. Yet the petite, golden-skinned Ava is a fascinating contradiction—vicious yet witty, strong yet vulnerable, lethal but fiercely loyal. Against his better judgment, McKell craves that loyalty, and much more. When the chase leads to seduction, McKell and Ava will race to discover the truth about his past. But the answers will come at a price, even for a woman who thought she had nothing left to lose. . . .

i enjoyed this book but it was not one of those that keeps you interested through every page. some of it dragged on and on until i had to skip over it to get to the good parts. starting with this ebook i made the decision that no matter how much i want a ebook that i will not pay 9.99 or higher for it. these prices have gotten way out of hand and i had been contributing to the madness by buying them at those prices. if im going to give that much money for a book it will be one that i can pick up and hold, not an ebook.

i love all of gena's books, i love the actions and affection in this book in the middle but i felt that the end was kind of rushed :/ me just being a freak there wasnt alot of romantic scenes, there was more action and growling and them always going at it but i found it cute cuz they always liked each other :) great read

This next installment was as good as the previous 4. The books flow well from one to the next. I was glad to see Ava mix with her Victor and await when Dallas gets a book of his own. Gena Showalter has a great imagination and I have enjoyed many of her books if not all

In New Chicago Ava Sans is nearing the end of her training at Alien Investigation and Renewal. Noted for being one of the rough and tough girls, her "graduation" assignment is to capture the former leader of the vampire army, Victor McKell. The AIR trainee understands that this undead has become mentally deranged in his hatred of humanity. He believes they are low on the food chain even though his kind avoids his hostility, but in spite of being a psychotic he still can manipulate time. Although Ava assumes Victor sees her as dinner, she walks boldly on to his estate where he fails to kill her like he normally does to intruders. Instead admires her incredible body and he offers a deal to team up with her to prevent an alien queen from infecting the planet. Planning to use her as an expendable lure to draw vampires to him, McKell soon falls in love. Gena Showalter displays her romantic fantasy writing skills with her seventh Alien Huntress thriller (see Savor Me Slowly and Seduce the Darkness) with this fascinating, seemingly improbable pairing of a predator with a huntress and somehow makes it feel plausible. He is a human consumer (literally that is) while she is a rough vampire and other alien investigative human. She prefers nips and sensual bites while he rips throats for sustenance. Although the alien queen subplot takes a back seat to the dynamic duo's "war", readers will appreciate this pairing as she gives as much or more than she takes. Harriet Klausner

The irreverent relationship between Avalon and Noelle is truly fun. It is picked up later by McKell later making for fun throughout.

I love Gena's books & this one is a favorite of mine. Ava and her BFF, Noelle crack me up. McKell is sexy and broody. This is a must read book. Just be prepared for laugh out loud moments. I got stared at in the doctors office for giggling. My response: you just gotta read it. Try Gina's Lords of the Underworld series also.
