Alien huntress, Mia Snow, works for the New Chicago Police Department as the head of a unit of Alien Investigation and Removal agents. They search for the alien enemies that live among the humans on earth. And Mia and her agents have the authority to kill, even if they just suspect wrongdoing on the part of any alien.
Mia is a strong, tough agent who is well equipped for her job. And she has some grudges against the aliens who inhabit earth. They killed her beloved brother.
A series of murders sends Mia and her partner Dallas tracking an identified alien species. During her investigation she meets an erotic, alien, Kyrin en Arr. He has the ability to save someone close to Mia, but not without a price. That price will require Mia to surrender to the forbidden but attractive Kyrin.
During the course of her investigation into the murders, she discovers secrets about herself, her family and dangerous scientific experiments.
Gena Showalter's Awaken Me Darkly is a well-written, well-plotted science fiction novel. The writing is dark and gritty but will keep you turning the pages. Be aware, there are erotic sexual scenes throughout.
