Muahahaha I couldn’t help myself!
Well well… What can I say about this Awaken Me Darkly? It’s mostly typical UF to my entire disappointment. I like a good UF as any cool and important person but my dear Huntress of Aliens is not the most special kid in class. The story is mediocr...more
Mia Snow is not just an agent for A.I.R, she is THE agent for A.I.R. The toughest, the smartest, the most lethal. Ever since he beloved brother was killed by a group of predatory Aliens, Mia has devoted her life to the destruction of the Alien inv...more
Mia Snow is a Huntress, she hunts down aliens who have commited violent crimes on humans and executes them, and her most recent case, where a man shows up dead and posed in a seedy alley is no different, she hs to find the alien responsible and execute them. Only things aren't quite what they seem, espcially with a certain handsome but deadly alien, and the case soon becomes really personal.
I think this book starts of really well, she sets up an interesting futuristic world where aliens...more
Mia Snow has been called out to a homicide. A man, William Steele, has been found nude in a dicey neighborhood and it's only luck that Mia and Dallas each find a clue that narrows the list of suspects down. All on that list are aliens, which confirms that their unit, AIR, is in charge.
The team members of AIR are hoping this isn't a serial killer as Steele is the fifth man who's been snatc...more
I have been saving this series for a long, long time, not because I thought it would be amazing and I wanted to save it for later but because it was the last series I had yet to read from this outstanding author. I knew I wouldn't be as attached to it as her LOTU series but I still knew I would like it big time because I adore how she writes. Well, I am glad to say I even liked it much more than what I thought I would after reading most of the reviews out there.
I never thought aliens co...more
Kyrin the alien and Mia the half alien romance was more of a lust kind of thing and so it was ok for me but not thrilling. I didn't get any kind of thrill for this book or emotion.
If a book brings out some kind of emotion in me li...more
Aliens are in this world (future earth from what I can tell) and Mia Snow is in charge of a team for the A.I.R. unit of the New Chicago Police Department. (A.I.R. standing for Alien Investigation and Removal.) During an alien rel...more
The city is Chicago, the time: the distant future (it was never specified). A series of killings has erupted, and A.I.R is on the case. I know sounds silly, right? :P
Awaken me Darkly begins the Alien Huntress series with Alien Investigation and Removal agent, Mia Snow. She is an expert when dealing with "other-worlders", and as a series of killings unfold in Chicago, Mia and her team must track the killer before it is too late. But as they begin their trail in finding a suspe...more
I liked the characters, Mia and Kyrin were great. Mia was a strong and badass heroine and she wasn't afraid to fight some aliens' asses. Kyrin is an Arcadian (an alien), he was super powerful, even Mia was kinda afraid of him. Their relationship...more
Mia is a no-nonsense kick-ass alien hunter, she's had a tough life growing up. Her mother left after she was born, her two brothers were murdered and her father stopped loving her and turned abusive when her fir...more

This is more a story kind of a story than a romance novel. I never felt like I got to know Kyrin, and even when he was around there didn't seem to be tons of chemistry between them either. Plus this book really onl...more
I would de...more
Theoretically this should have been a buddy read :D It's just Gena Showalter writes such a compelling book that i literally couldn't put it down!
It has loads of action, kick ass hero and heroine, sensuality, murder :>, a mystery... in other words: read it! ASAP!
The story centers on Mia Snow, a delicate looking, tough as nails agent for the Alien Investigation and Removal Agency. Aliens live on Earth and have for 70 years. Many are friendly, but the AIR protects humans from those who are not.
Mia is trying to solve a string of murders perpetrated by an alien, whi...more
The setting is the future where humans and aliens live and exist together in one universe. Mia Snow works as an Alien Huntress for the government to help police any Aliens who commit crimes and protect the human population. When a murdered man is found with...more
Questa autrice è entrata a far parte del gruppo degli autori che amo di più grazie ai suoi Signori degli Inferi, ed anche se ho trovato questo primo capitolo, che è riuscito ad approdare in Italia solo oggi (in America è stato pubblicato già nel 2005), diverso e inaspettato rispetto a quanto mi aveva abituata, posso dire comunque di...more
Somebody recommended the Alien Huntress series to me a while back. I wasn’t immediately sold on it, but added it to my used bookstore watch-list. When I did find a copy, the cover blurb about “Buffy the Vampire Slayer meets Alien Nation” guaranteed a purchase (I love both TV shows to death!), but I still wasn’t inclined to give it any sort of priority in my TBR pile.
So, what changed? Well, we had a coupl...more
The Alien Huntress series is set in an alternate future. A little like Eve Dallas, but way better. There are aliens, other-worlders, living among the humans, but they don't have equal rights. They can be killed on sight if they harm a human, are barely tolerated. Humans almost destroyed the Earth when they tried to battle them - and failed - so they in the end agreed on living together, as long as no human was harmed.
