Mia Snow is an agent for Alien Investigation and Removal, or AIR, and it is her job to figure out who is responsible for the disappearance of five men who share common physical descriptions but donít seem to be related in any other way. Mia suspects itís the work of aliens, and she vows to bring justice and closure to this case. Mia isnít too sure that her main suspect is who sheís looking for so she teams up with her suspect's brother, albeit unwillingly, and now she has to constantly remind herself to remain focused on her case and not the distracting alien working with her.

Kyrin en Arr is trying to atone for past mistakes so he joins up with the delectable Mia to prove his sister's innocence and to stop the being behind the disappearances and murders being committed. The attraction felt by both Kyrin and Mia is too strong to ignore, and Kyrin has to convince Mia to give into their mutual desire.

Awaken Me Darkly was a fantastic read that will have readers breathlessly awaiting the next installment in the series. I was amazed to find out Miaís origins and saddened by the choice she was faced with and her unhappy childhood. Gena Showalter has created a very interesting world that readers will enjoy visiting over and over again. She has also created a group of fascinating characters who readers will want to get to learn more about and see more of. I look forward to learning what more lies in store for Mia, Kyrin and their family and friends.
