Review: As Shadows Fade (Gardella Vampire Hunters: Victoria #5) Colleen Gleason

As Shadows Fade
The Gardella Vampire Chronicles
book 5 - finale
Colleen Gleason

Historical Paranormal Romance

Original Cover Art
Directly descended from the very first vampire hunter in the Gardella family, Victoria knows she must continue the lineage so humanity will have protectors against the undead. 

While Sebastian Vioget appears to be both the perfect warrior and lover to ensure the Gardella Legacy, Victoria cannot forget Max Pesaro - the former slayer still haunted by the vampire queen Lilith's obsession with him. But it is Lilith's obsession that may save all of humanity. 

Demons, enemies of both mortals and the undead, have found their way to earth. To defeat them, vampires and slayers must fight side by side. But Lilith wants Max in return for her cooperation; a small price for the world, but too high a price for Victoria.

** Spoiler Alert **
If you have not yet read the previous books in the series, this review will spoil quite a few surprises. You can find links to reviews of the first 3 books at the bottom of this post.


New Cover Art 2014
Perfect ending to an amazing series!

When some series come to an end it feels forced, like the author is trying to give everyone a fitting farewell and story lines don't seem to match up. This is not one of those times. Colleen has expertly ended the series with each character getting their respected goodbye.

As Shadows Fade is another action packed page turner. Vampires, Demons and the dreaded love triangle.
Victoria has finally come to the realization that she is in love with the tall brooding Max, and is determined to make him hers, whether he wants to be or not! Max wants Victoria, but he doesn't feel worthy of her as mere mortal man and is steadily pushing her toward the extremely handsome Venator, Sebastian. Sebastian is indeed in love with Victoria and refuses to be a gentleman about her choice, he is willing to do anything to get her!

Mix in some serious demonic threats, the always evil Queen of the Vampires, Lilith, and some other surprises along the way - and you've got probably the best book in the series!

The ending will ultimately appeal to both happily ever after lovers and those that prefer things to go awry. This book has it all. Suspense, mystery, romance, hope, sadness, love, surprise, etc. 

5 Stars
