Publisher's Summary

Risa will go to any lengths to avenge her mother’s murder - even if it means making a pact with the most evil vampire she’s ever met. Lethal and powerful, Madeline Hunter is leader of the vampire council, and will put her resources behind finding the killer - for a price.

The venerable vampire requires the assistance of Risa’s psychic powers. Quid pro quo. Someone - or something - is targeting the elders of the local council, cursing the immortal vampires to rapidly age, sink into madness, and die. Risa must track down the vengeful being responsible.

But Risa’s father, a rogue Aedh priest, also enlists her in a dangerous mission. And not even the great Madeline Hunter may be able to protect her from the shadowy forces that desire nothing less than Risa’s destruction.

    "Good breakaway series from Keri Arthur"

    Liked the first book in this new series from Arthur. I loved her Riley Jensen series, and this is several years down the road from that. Many of the same characters. I didn't like the narrator quite as much, something about her voice bothered me.
    Risa is a strong if somewhat confused heroine but likable all the same and the other characters fill out the story nicely.

    "Lots of action"

    There's a couple story lines going on in this second book of the Dark Angels series. First is the task of finding out who summoned the demon that makes vampires age, sink into madness and die. The second one is Risa's father, a fallen Aedh priest, has given her the task of finding the keys that will open the portals between the two worlds. There's a lot of action and violence. You get to meet a couple new demons that Risa and her friends of course get to fight and on top of all that is the growing sexual tension between Risa and her guardian reaper Azriel. There's also a few love scenes between Risa and her fallen lover Lucian.

    These are not standalone books and need to be read in order as there is the continuing quest to find the portal keys and a cliffhanger or two.

    "What a great new series!"

    I definitely enjoyed listening to Darkness Rising, which is the 2nd book of the Darkness series by Keri Arthur. Although I did like the first book (Darkness Undone), this one really picks up speed as Risa's quest begins as she learns that she must find these "keys" to prevent a sort of mystical armageddon. Risa's Aedh father makes a brief but creepy appearance early on, and Lucian--Risa's romantic interest from book 1--starts to show more of his true colors.
    The world building in this series is really quite unique, which makes it a truly fun listen. Although my favorite part of this book is definitely Azriel, Risa's reluctant guardian.
    Also, the narration by Saskia Maarleveld is absolutely fantastic, and I just love her Australian accent.
