New York Times bestselling author Keri Arthur returns to the enthralling Guardian World—and a twilight realm of danger and desire… Risa Jones, half-Aedh/half-werewolf, can enter the realm between life and death. She can speak to the dying and the dead, and she can see the reapers, collectors of souls. What she can not yet see is the identity of a stranger murdering women and draining their blood. Now Risa must summon her gifts to find him, even if it means putting her own life in danger. But Risa needn’t look far. The killer knows who she is. He tells her his victims are infected by darkness and he’s fated to destroy them. Fascinated by Risa, he engages her in a sinister game: the chance to save the life of his next victim by deciphering his series of clues. In a race against time, she enlists the help of the reaper Azriel. But as an attraction between them grows, so does the fear that the stranger’s motives are only part of a larger, more dangerous stratagem—one that that has lured Risa and Azriel into the dark.
Half Aedh, Half Werewolf Risa Jones is back with her own personal Reaper Azriel by her side. Risa’s Aedh powers allow her to walk through the grey realm. Unfortunately, her latest trip through the gray fields puts her head-to-head with a psychotic serial killer. This killer wants to play a game of cat and mouse with Risa. All Risa needs is one more person trying to kill her or get her to work for them! Her plate is kind of full in that arena what with her own father trying to manipulate her. Risa rarely knows who she can trust but she better find out fast or this could be her last trip to the fields.
The Dark Angels series is better than ever in Keri Arthur’s Darkness Hunts! Ms. Arthur heats up the story as Risa and Azriel are facing their feelings for each and at the same time battling evil. I love that we finally get some insight into the character of Lucian, Risa’s sometimes bed mate. There is so much happening in Darkness Hunts it is bloody impossible to put the book down before the end. So many times I was shouting at the book, OMG! Not only does Darkness Hunts ply you with out of this world action but it makes the reader sizzle with its unending passion.
Keri Arthur’s Darkness Hunts is powerful top-notch urban fantasy storytelling at its best! Arthur’s extensive world and character building makes her a standout in the Urban Fantasy/Paranormal genre. Risa Jones is the kind of character that keeps readers coming back for more. Prepare yourself for edge of your seat thrills and thirst-quenching desire as Risa Jones takes on her latest adversaries in Darkness Hunts.
