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
1.) FEMINISM DOES NOT EQUAL MAN-HATING. Okay, so the main character is just going around, talking about castrating men, forcing steel pipes down their throats (o.O), ripping out their voice boxes, kicking men in the balls, and saying stuff like,
A tide of anticipation was already rushing through me at the thought of putting these men in their places - at my feet.
One of the men had actually pulled my hair and scratched my cheek, like a sissy girl who ha ...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
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
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
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
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
First Impression: Smoking sex with a hot alien. Win!
The Narration:Justine Eyrenarration of Awaken Me Darkly is equal parts lulling and sex phone operator. She has a silky deep voice that works well for both the female and male characters. It's hard for a female narrator to pull the male voices off well sometimes but Eyre does a great job and she still manages to make the females sound light and feminine.
What I liked: Showalter does a great job at setting up t...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
The book was action packed, the intrigues and mysteries were amazing.
Sometimes the pace was perfect but at others it felt a bit slow.
I didn't understand where the infatuation with each other came at first, but at the end I understood. (at least from Kyrin's side).
I was pleasantly surprised with the truth about Atlanna and the outcome in general.
The worst thing, since it was an audiobook, definitely was the woman reading it. OMG! It was unbearable. I was wishing for it to be over.
I would de ...more
Well I loved this at the beginning. Mia was kick-arse, as were the rest of her team. I was interested in what was going on with the murders and finding out who was behind it...
I also loved the little glimpses we got at the start of Kyrin. He sounded equally seductive and bad-arse--which is a great combination.
I can't say I understood Mia's need to attack him all the time...but I guess she has some anger issues regarding aliens.
The murder plot became less interesting throughout the book as ...more
I thought this was a pretty cool sci-fi book that definitely kept me turning the pages, but I didn't really enjoy the romance between Kyrin and Mia. It also ended rather abruptly, and I would have liked to see a little more resolution to some of the issues. I'm guessing there will be another book that focuses on Mia in Showalters' Alien Huntress series?
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
