Publisher's Summary

Ridding the world of evil, one alien at a time: That's Mia Snow's mission.
Snow is in the forecast.
In a time and place not too far away, Mia Snow is an alien huntress for the New Chicago Police Department. Heading up her expert team of Alien Investigation and Removal agents, Mia's unmatched at battling the elusive enemy among us, and she's the perfect girl for the job. She's seen her brother die at the hands of aliens. She's earned each of her scars. And she'll die before she cries. Now, a series of killings have Mia and her partner Dallas tracking alien suspects - but a sudden blast of violence leaves Dallas fighting for his life.
They are ice and fire.
The chance to save Dallas appears in the form of a tall, erotic stranger. An alien. A murder suspect. Kyrin en Arr, of the deadly Arcadian species, holds the power to heal the injured agent but not without a price. For Mia Snow, that price is surrendering to Kyrin's forbidden seduction... and embracing their electric attraction. She's walking a knife's edge, risking her badge and even her life. 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.

What made the experience of listening to Awaken Me Darkly the most enjoyable?

Justine Eyre

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

More Kyrin

Have you listened to any of Justine Eyre’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Justine is perfect as always

Any additional comments?

I had to think about this review for a little while. I really love Gena Showalter’s book. I absolutely love Justine Eyre as a narrator. And I really did enjoy this story. But when I got to the end I kept looking at my phone (because that is where my audio books plays) and thought “That’s it??”. Yep sure enough that was the end of the book. To me it felt just a little rushed but yet it was wrapped up nicely. My next thought was there will be another books with Kyrin & Mia, but as far as I can see they don’t get another book.

So I am on the fence. I like the book. Loved Justine reading to me. Loved Kyrin. Liked Mia. Loved the side characters. But was left wanting more. I wanted more Kyrin time. I wanted to see more Kyrin & Mia. I guess I hope that as the series goes on we will get glimpses of Kyrin and Mia. Because there are a lot of questions that need to be answered and the future is not certain.

If you love Gena Showalter I think that you will like this book. If you love to listen to Justine Eyre this is right up your alley. Over all I am happy with my purchase and read.

I purchased this story from Audible and this review is my own opinion and not a paid review.

Repetitive Dull and Disappointing

Any additional comments?

After reading the Introduction i was excited to get listening to this book. I enjoy books with Alien/Human romance with some Thriller/mystery thrown in. This book could of been so much better than it was. It is very repetitive in places and i found myself drifting away from the story, a lot. I skipped a few chapters and had no trouble catching up either (Not a good sign). There also could of been more romance between Mia and Kyrin. I found the build up to the sex plain boring. There is not much sex in this story either. Justine Eyre's narration was annoying. Her voice is not suited to the story. With such a hard cold hearted Main lady her voice really needed to be more firm. I found it quite sickly sweet. I don't think i will bother with anymore books in this series. All in all this book was disappointing.
