As Shadows Fade (The Gardella Vampire Hunters: Victoria Book 5) Kindle Edition
"Vampires have met their match with Victoria Gardella,"* but now the huntress faces an even greater evil as London is besieged by malevolent entities no mortal was ever meant to encounter...
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 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.

Seriously, I loved Victoria. She has became one of my absolute favorite female characters, and she’s one of those characters who knows what she wants and just makes it happen. It also seemed like we got a little more of Max’s and Sebastian’s POVs this time, which I enjoyed. It was great getting to see a whole different side to Sebastian in the fourth and fifth books.
It was also nice getting to see the Venators in general have a little bit of fun in this one when they went out drinking because the characters in these books seemed to have really serious and stressful lives.
Things did get a little more predictable this time, but then maybe I was just spoiled since all the other books were so unpredictable. And there was still one surprise in store this time!
The ending was bittersweet, and I felt terrible for one of the characters, but I was still happy with it, especially the sweet part. And the bitter part is apparently going to be addressed in the spin-off series and had a point to it.
Overall, this was a consistently great series with complex characters and relationships that I was gladly sucked into!

Original Review @ Metaphors and Moonlight (link in profile)
Characterization and plotting are good.
This is the 2nd time I am reading the series . I started reading the current Trilogy of Max Denton daughter Macey Gardella series wish it had been a longer series which also were fantasic :)
After so much time had past since I first read the Gardella's series with all the charters being mentioned on this new series I had to go back & read them again and as I said still had my interest and I love!love! these books
Awesome job! Colleen Gleason thanks for so many great charters , waiting to read more! :)
This was an action-packed, satisfying wrap-up to the Victoria Gardella series. Sacrifices are made all around, and we finally get the emotional pay-off between Victoria and her man of choice.
