New Urban Fantasy

I recently came across a new urban fantasy author, Gena Showalter. She sold her first book 4 years ago and already has a range of 13 books available, with more in the pipeline. That is a very short time in which to become a New York Times best seller.

The book reviews I found for her looked interesting and I decided to try the first book in her Alien Huntress series, Awaken Me Darkly. The story follows Mia Snow, and alien huntress for the New Chicago Police Department. A series of strange killings (as if there are ever any normal killings) has her and her partner, Dallas, hunting a particularly nasty alien. Do yourself a favour and do not read the official book synopsis – it doesn’t do the book justice at all.
