She is then recruited by Alien Investigation and Removal Agency where she has to go through ups and gen and control her desire for Ryan because their romance is forbidden.
Ambereen She is 17 years old. I was talking about you, not the name. She wasted many of her days “flying” on Onadyn, a drug introduced to the world after aliens started inhabiting it with us. Damages done to the earth were so devastating that natural resources had to be replaced by synthetic materials.
She will be trained to protect the human race from predatory aliens.
Haven’t decided if I’ll purchase Blacklisted yet though. Phoenix is such a wonderful voice. The theme in this book is to try to over come obstacles to reach your goal.
For all the conflict, there wasn’t a lot of conflict, if that makes sense. Phoenix has been through rehab twice already and is trying to kick her addiction to Onadyn for good. Also, if you are just a YA sci-fi fan and are looking for a great read you sjowalter check this one out.
I love how each and every character is extremely different. Much of the story is spent with Phoenix learning her new skills and learning about Otherworlders. I guess this stops it from being repetative, but still, I would have liked to see more between Ryan and Phoenix.
I wish I would have been able to know more about his background just so I could have connected with him better, but he was still a very fun character. Especially since dating between students and instructors is forbidden.
What I deeply disliked about the book is that it is so fast pace The book started off interestingly enough – Phoenix being addicted to drugs and her mother being deeply disappointed in her. I do think the ending was a little unsatifying because you are waiting for when they are finally together and it is a brief mention before the story ends. If you like this one, be sure to read Blacklisted, the second book in this series.
Will they accept Phoenix and her flaws?
Gena knows how to showalterr you swoon. This was a fun read and action packed. Welcome to New Chicago, where numerous alien showqlter are abundant, and some can get along with humans. How ahnded Ryan recruited and what was his boot camp like? I liked the friendships that blossomed and that Phoenix made an shwoalter to draw the one loner in the group out. She makes friends and fights her feelings for Ryan, as a relationship between them could get her kicked out of the program.
But when a party in the woods turns into an all-out battle with the most ferocious aliens Phoenix has never seen, she’s brought home in what appears to be an Onadyn-i. Phoenix knows she can’t afford to blow this opportunity. A party in the woods turns chaotic when Sybilins attack and Phoenix is returned home in what appears Welcome to New Chicago, where numerous alien species are abundant, and some can get along with humans.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book and can’t wait to see what happens in Blacklisted – it obviously carries on but down a slightly different route!
She will now learn how to fight dirty, track hard, and destroy the enemy. But when her friends are attacked by a group of predatory aliens in a party at the woods one night, Phoenix life changes drastically. It is definitely a great book for Twilight fans.

There ged meets the super I liked the first couple books in Showalter’s Alien Huntress series, but didn’t like the last few. Enter the Alien Investigation and Removal agency. The story takes place in the future when humans and aliens live, work, and play alongside each other, in peace after years of tena. I did notice very similar characteristics between some of the characters in ‘Red Handed’ and the series ‘The White Rabbit Chronicles’.
But no matter what it will keep you obsessed with the book until you finish it, to the very end. The story seems as if written by the pants and not plotted.
