I'm considering buying Gena Showalter's Alien Huntress series but I have a few reservations.

I love the Lords of the Underworld and Atlantis series she has done and I'm hoping these books are just as good but I've read quite a few differing reviews so I'm not sure whether to spend my money on them or not.

I read somewhere that they are first person. Which would be a definite no for me buying them, I like books that give you the perspective from both the male and female leads.

Is this series any good? Would you recommend it? Is it first person?

Thank you

Hi Donna

The Alien Huntress books are first person in that you see the story unfold from the main protagnists point of view, but that switches between both the male and female leads (as well as other significant characters in the books). They are written in a very similar vein to her Lords of the Underworld books, so if you enjoyed those I'm pretty sure you will enjoy the Alien Huntress books too.

Happy reading!

I wasn't sure I would enjoy them either. First 2 sat on my bookcase for ages. But, once I started the first one I was surprised. I now have the third one on my Kindle and I'm looking forward to reading it. Give it a go, they are really quite good.

I have been avoiding them too. I just keep thinking... "Aliens? Really?" which is rather strange since I am happy to read about vampires, werewolves, ghosts, demons, etc etc etc

I did read the short story she did about aliens in Deep Kiss of Winter and I was surprised how much I liked it. I was pretty taken by the male lead in fact. Does anyone know if that story is part of this series, or is it perhaps just a stand-alone alien story?

OK, I'm going to trust your judgement! I've ordered the full series, 5 books. There's another 2 but it looks like they were written for teenagers so I didn't order those.

That should help my 'To Be Read' pile out a bit, I was down to 60 books, which is very bad for me as I read about 4-5 books a week!

Thank you for you replying and giving your opinions.

Ok, I'm disappointed. This series is definitely first person, well the first book is anyway so I'm assuming the rest are as well. When I'm reading a book about a couple I like to get the perspective of each, most authors alternate chapters for each lead. I feel you get more involved in the story that way. In the first book you have no idea what Kyrian is thinking, how he feels about Mia, etc.

I'll read the rest of the series, might as well seen as I've bought them, but I'm not going to enjoy them as much as I would have if you got the perspective of both leads.

I don't understand why authors write in the first person, I mean a relationship involves both people so surely you should get thoughts and feelings from both?

Sometimes the not-knowing is the improtant thing, I think. It can be vital if the story hangs on a misunderstanding, for example. It would be less compelling of you knew what the other perons thought in that instance. I like both styles though.

i started the series in the middle bride story and read on to mckells, unknowing i brought the 1st and 2nd book shocked to see it was the all written in the 1st unlike the other stories i read, mia story was okay and readable but i eden story just felt long and tedious i couldnt connect with with the male and kept wondering what he was thinking and wondering if he liked or even loved her. i'd suggest u stay clear of enslave me sweetly (eden black story) not worth the time or money as for the rest of the series fantastic, would bride story being the best in the whole series her davayn are pure magic.
