Awaken Me Darkly (Alien Huntress, #1)Awaken Me Darkly by Gena Showalter

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I was so excited when I found this book. It’s a SciFi Urban Fantasy! Would that be urban SciFi then? I’m not sure. Awaken Me Darkly has what readers have come to expect from the UF genre, lots of action and a kick ass hero, in this case Alien Hunter Mia Snow. The author does a nice job setting up the twist, which is something that some of the faster paced stories have trouble with. The science fiction aspects, high technology and aliens, were well fleshed out and really added to the story. I would have enjoyed a little more science I think, especially in regards to a major plot point, but I admit not everyone reading the genre would want that.

If I have a complaint, it’s that the ending seemed rushed and didn’t live up to the great pace and tension that the the rest of the book had. Well worth reading if you enjoy your UF on the adventurous side.
