Ecstasy in Darkness (Alien Huntress #5)
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 Investigatio
This book was absolutely hilarious. I giggled so many times while reading that my husband started giving me odd looks. The funniest parts usually revolved around Ava and Noelle and involved them sniping at each other. They were the type of best friends that seemed like blood enemies to the casual observer. Poor McKell made the mistake of trying to insert himself into that situation, not realizing that just because they can criticize each other doesn’t mean that they’ll let anyone else d...more
I haven't read an Alien Huntress book since, well since the last one. (lol, no really, though it's been since Bride's book came out, so a while now).
I was soo excited to get back into this world!
I read the story in Deep Kiss of Winter as my intro to the AH world, and I really liked it, so I borrowed the first couple from a friend and found out I REALLY liked the series. When I saw this one at the store, I went nuts, seriously jumping up and down and making a complete ass...more
Now, I should qualify and say that while I am a fan of th...more

But the true star of the book was Ava, and most of all her relationship with Noelle. They were truly aweso...more
The Romance- Exciting, fast paced and enticing. Watching Ava and McKell fall into passionate lust then passionate love was such a joy.
The Drama – Loved all the obstacles that Ava and MacKell had to face, with their romance as well as with themselves. Making this not an easy romance as well as the kick ass villains.
The Villains- As dangerous and devious as villains need to be. They brought the real mayhem and danger, plus a whole lot of revulsion.
The Aliens- I didn’t know it was possib...more
While McKell is never going to be a white hat kind of guy, the fact that he e...more

Paranormal Romance- Oct. 26th, 2010
Ecstasy in Darkness is a sassy new edition to Gena Showalter’s Alien Huntress series. The heroine is smart mouthed and the vamp hero is absolutely gorgeous!
Ava was poor and desperate when she was young. And although tough on the outside she still feels like that little lost girl inside. Working for the Alien Investigation and Removal team with her best bud (Noelle) gives her a feeling of purpose and belonging. Her new...more
First of all, the book is sexually explicit. There is no sexual innuendo. The sexual tension which leads to sex scenes are spelled out. It was a little much for me. I don't mind a little sex talk in...more
This book skates on the edge between PNR and UF. My preference is for UF and the heroine here is sarcastic and kicks butt. The relationship between the heroine and her BFF is fantastic. They are the type of best friends that seem like blood enemies to the casual observer. Fun dialog.
This is al...more
It was action packed and whole lot of sexual tensions between McKell and Ava until they did the deed (which was hot by the way). Lots of insecurities from Ava as well even though she is a badass trainee/agent. She doesn't date, like ever so it took some times when she finally admitted that she has falling in love with McKell. The same goes for McKell, since he waited such a lon...more
All the characters are over the top funny. I especially loved the characters of Ava and Noelle. They bicker and call each names but really are the best friends. They love and support each other like sisters and get a tad violent with anyone that crosses them.
I also loved the sexy and dysf...more

Book Rating: ★★★
Read the series? Probably, I got the next
installment but I'm not sure I'd read them all.
I'm going to sum up my review nice and quick-ish because no one reads these anyways but myself.
This book was a solid read. I really enjoyed the relationship between Noelle and Ava even though it dwindled as the book progresses and the steamy-ish chemistry between McKell and Ava.
McKell wasn't quite what I expected for some reason. He was a bit more...more
