While I wasn't particularly excited about either characters (Noelle and Hector), I still enjoyed this story. Noelle is funny and confident, though in real life I reckon she would get on my nerves. Loved the updates about Ava and McKell. This story returns to the books 1 and 2 story arcs, which is a good thing because the Schon were getting a little tiring. After reading this book, I'm more keen than ever for Dallas' story and I hope that's where Gena's heading next. My only critique is that sometimes Gena switched between third person and first person narration and consistency would have been better (or at least the use of italics to better differentiate the two). Perhaps the typography wasn't Gena's fault, however.
Wow I have fought and fought to get hold of this book earlier than the original release date given of November! Several e-mails to Amazon themselves and the author Gena Showalter (who really helped out) and finally they found out the UK publisher had made a little mistake with the release date and that we in the UK should have had the book released to us at the same time as the US!
Well it was definitely worth the wait and the badgering of Gena and Amazon:) I have been eagerly awaiting Noelle's story since her and Ava were first introduced to the Alien Huntress series and this book has had me laughing out loud with Noelle's quick and witty ways. One of my favourite 'funnies' from the book being Noelle's ring tone "You better answer this, genius, or I'll kick your ass!" in Ava's voice. The delectable other half in this book is Hector Dean and we find out more about his super hot (literally) arms. Hector and Noelle find themselves paired together investigating otherworlders who are being traded on the black market slave trade. They need to find out who's doing the trading and bring a stop to it before more people are murdered and more girls sold for dirty means. Hector and Noelle can't resist each other but there is one or rather two burning hot issues they need to conquer if they can ever be together. Also some other favourite characters are back in this book such as Ava and McKell (will she let McKell turn her?) and Dallas (I hope his story is next he needs a bit of luck).
I loved this latest instalment and if you haven't read either the Alien Huntress series or any of Gena's books then I would definitely recommend them. Can't wait for the next!:)
I'll be honest and say i was dissapointed with this book.After reading the 'Lords of the Underworld' series by this author and enjoying it a lot i was sure this would be on par at the very least.By the third chapter i was toying with the idea of leaving it but then thought it might get better as it went along.I understood that Noelle wasn't the 'airhead' she was making out to be but her simpering got on my nerves.I'm not sure the storyline was that interesting but moving along i did manage to get into it a bit better. Once Noelle was partnered with Hector Dean and are soon on the trial of a murderer things started to get better.Unfortunately Hector holds a terrible secret,he can kill with a single brush of his fingertips.He manages to keep it from his collegues but as his desire for Noelle gets stronger he finds it harder to keep his hands off her. I'm sure fans of 'An Alian Huntress' novels will enjoy Noelles' story.
Ava and Noelle just start AIR training OK ... enter Hector, they fall in love HEA ending.
Ectasy in Darkness: Ava and Noelle finished training and are full AIR agents. However Noelle and Hector have no relationship at all. They hardly know one another. What's the time line of these two stories?? They don't work either way.
I didn't enjoy this story as much as the others, as I didn't like the confusion. I thought this story was a continuation from Ava and McKell's story.
Gena Showalter is an amazing authour, fifty shades was not a patch on this series. Totally enjoyed all the books in the series, great storylines and kept me rivited for hours. I would highly recommend any of her books, a bit steamy but very well written. sereiously looking forward to her new releases.
