Book Blog Tour: Seduce the Darkness by Gena Showalter

June 30th, 2009 by Debbie's World of Books


Thanks to Sarah at Pocket Books for putting together this tour!



The war between otherworlders and humans changed Earth beyond recognition. It also saved Bride McKells’s life. Before, the gorgeous vampire was a target for every fanatic with a stake and a crucifix. Now, she’s free to roam the streets — and desperate to find others of her kind. One man claims to have the answers she seeks. Devyn, King of the Targons, is a warrior and a womanizer, and he makes no secret of how much he wants Bride — and how dangerous he could be to her in every way.

An avid collector of women, Devyn easily seduces human and otherworlder alike. Until now. Not only does Bride resist him, but she leaves Devyn feeling something entirely new…a bone-deep need bordering on obsession. Her blood is the key to curing a vicious alien disease, but helping Bride uncover her origins will compel her to choose between electrifying passion and a destiny that could tear her from Devyn’s side forever.

I am a little ashamed to admit that I could not put this book down even though it meant ignoring all the other things I had to do.  It just caught my attention that much.  Showalter creates another fascinating world that blends the everyday with the supernatural.  A world where not everyone is human and everyone knows it.  I loved Bride’s toughness and vulnerable side.  Devyn was a little harder for me to like.  In the beginning I did not like to see that he was willing to force Bride to do certain things against her will.  Luckily he does manage to redeem himself and work his way back into my good graces. It probably helped that the chemistry between he and Bride was undeniable so of course you want them to end up together.  Being a fan of Showalter’s Lords of the Underworld series had me eager to read this book and I was not disappointed.
