My first in this series, but not my first by Gena Showalter. She's on my auto-buy for LOTU, so I've been meaning to get to the Alien Huntress books for some time now. I wasn't disappointed. I feel like the bulk of this is setting up for more, though. It didn't feel like a stand-alone story, and I hope to see more of Mia Snow as I continue. I've read the YA books with the character, and I enjoyed those too. This is a good start to what I hope is a great series. I'll be reading on.
