AWAKEN ME DARKLY, by Gena Showalter

Now here’s my kind of book. Dark paranormal fantasy. I’m really looking forward to reading AWAKEN ME DARKLY, by Gena Showalter.

The story is set in New Chicago, where Mia Snow is an alien huntress for the Police Department. Using her psychic abilities and deadly fighting skills to catch her prey, she heads up an expert team of Alien Investigation and Removal agents. Unmatched in battle, Mia fights the elusive enemy among us. And she’s driven by her early experiences, like seeing her brother die at the hands of aliens. As the story opens, Mia and her partner Dallas are tracking alien suspects – but a sudden blast of violence leaves Dallas fighting for his life.

Then a tall, erotic stranger, Kyrin en Arr, appears and offers Mia the chance to save Dallas. The catch? He’s an alien. And a murder suspect. And the price? Mia’s surrendering to Kyrin’s forbidden seduction…and embracing their electric attraction. The closer she gets to Kyrin, the more Mia learns about her own heart, her human needs – and the shocking secret that will shatter everything she’s ever believed.




Here’s what Gena has to say about herself--

Gena Showalter holds a Ph.D. in Quantum Physics (lie), is an expert in Krav Maga (bigger lie), and once worked as a bodyguard for the stars (the biggest lie of all). Actually, Gena Showalter is just your everyday, average girl who enjoys creating sizzling paranormal tales of kick-ass women and the men who can't resist them. With that bio, how can she miss as a storyteller?


"A brilliantly written, fast-paced novel, AWAKEN ME DARKLY sizzles…Similar to Laurell K. Hamilton’s Anita Blake series, [AWARKEN ME DARKLY] takes various steps to transcend the genres of the supernatural, mystery and science fiction" --Fresh Fiction

“Fans of TV’s Alias will find this book especially appealing” --Romantic Times BOOKclub

“Buffy the Vampire Slayer meets Alien Nation in this action-packed adventure, and Mia Snow is perfect as the alien hunter with a secret.” --Booklist

I can't stand "0 comments", it's depressing. I bought this recommended book a few nights ago, but haven't gotten to it yet. I'll let you know.
