Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author Keri Arthur received the coveted Romantic Times Career Achievement Award for her urban fantasy tales.

In Darkness Unbound, Risa Jones’ werewolf-and-Aedh lineage allows her to see reapers - supernatural beings that escort the souls of the dead to the afterlife. But when Risa discovers that a practitioner of blood magic is preventing souls from moving on, she knows she must set things right before all hell breaks loose.

Interesting and different

I bought this on a whim and a sale, so without much review or research. It was interesting, but I won't be getting any more of the series, I just didn't like the lead character that much so I don't really care about what happens to her or the unresolved elements of the story.

I liked that the author did not spend time on explaining how the 'reality' or 'world' of this book came to be, just accept that there are humans, vampires, werewolves, witches, and other creatures that all exist and many have interesting powers. If you are the sort who needs explanations, this might be bothersome. It didn't seem to be necessary, just go with the flow so to speak.

I'm thinking this might have been listed under romance, but I'd put it under fantasy/sci-fi. There isn't any romance but there is sex.

Exceeds expectations!

This is one of those books you can't help but enjoy! It has it all, vampires, werewolves, angels oh and you can't forget the love the mind reading and the action. At first I wasn't sure about this book, I thought I would try it out and if I didn't like it wouldn't be too big of a deal. By the time I was half way through the first chapter I was hooked.

Risa has to deal with so much and make so many hard decision that it is impressive especially since she is under so much pressure to let the problem she is investigating go. This is one of those series that you can't help but buy all the books at once and read them through.

I strongly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys romance, action, mind-reading angels, and good sarcasm. You won't be disappointed.

Wow, blew me away! Fantastic Listen

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Oh yes, very exciting and I've been following the whole series. I did not see this ending coming at all. I was stunned.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Darkness Unbound?

When Rissa realized who killed her mother and kills the bastard.

What does Saskia Maarleveld bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

It's her voice and they way she weaves the story line. It's like she is all the characters and really gets into character.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

How far can you push one person?

Any additional comments?

The whole series is fantastic. I am amazed how the story line continues and does not get boring. Rissa is a fantastic character. She has so many skills, but is still so very human in her emotions. She sometimes makes bad judgments, but isn't that what life is about? I would highly suggest listening to book one and going through them in sequence. You don't really have to as the author catches you up, but you miss a lot about how all the characters, evil and otherwise have connected.

Good but......

Keri Arthur is not one of my favorite authors and the Riley Jenson series is not one of my favorites. Fortunately, it isn't necessary to read the Riley Jenson Guardian series first in order to understand and appreciate the Dark Angels series in my personal opinion.

Anothr great series

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

A spin off of the Guardian series. If you liked the Guardian series you will like this series. The main character is the daughter of one of the lesser characters in the other series and Riley is still around but not a major player.

Didn't do it for me

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Bringing more information to the reader about the other characters

Would you ever listen to anything by Keri Arthur again?

This was my first read by her so maybe I would try another but not of this series

What didn’t you like about Saskia Maarleveld’s performance?

She's got right voice I just didn't care for the story

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

No i listened through till the end and had to drag myself there
