New to BookLikes and saving my place while I get my books in order...

Seduce the Darkness - Gena Showalter I LOVE Gena Showalter's Alien Huntress series and read the first three books in the series eagerly...but I have to say that whilst I liked the idea of this book (the fourth in the series) and I enjoyed the introduction of new characters and the next step in some of the ongoing storylines, I didn't enjoy this one as much as the previous books.

I do love Devyn's character so enjoyed reading a book about him, but I felt a bit disappointed as I found it a bit slower going than the others and actually stopped reading it part way through and then came back to it rather than finishing it in 48 hours like the others.

I also felt that the ending wasn't particularly satisfactory. I think because with all the others there was a specific mission that the characters were on or had to complete and there as some kind of resolution in them - but in this one there was a jumble of storylines, some continuing on from previous books, some new and no real 'mission' to speak of that was completed.

Also, whilst shape-shifters and vampires are interesting in their own right, I read lots of other series/books about these kinds of characters, and I enjoyed the Alen Huntress series as we see alien races and things I haven't read about before - so to introduce vampires is ok, but I see that the next book is about a vampire too that was introduced in this book, so whilst I will read it, I am a bit disappointed that we are not seeing more aliens...

Also, when will we see Dallas having his own story!!! ??? Thats one I am definitely looking forward to...
