Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling 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 cannot 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.

I Must Be a Glutton for Punishment!

I just finished this book and bought the next one. It's not that the story is so bad, not near as good as the Guardian series, but entertaining enough. The problem is the the narration by Saskia Maarleveld, she reads these books with so little personality, unless you want to count irritable as a main emotion, that I find I don't even like Risa some of the time. I looked forward to her being an adult, she was such a vibrant child in the Guardian books, so much personality. And our sexy male lead? He sounds even less appealing than Risa, like a dull dimwit. And I don't understand all those pauses in the middle of sentences, they are just long enough to make hold my breath, waiting for her to pickup the reading, it's just awful. Did I mention she reads these books flat as a pancake? After using Angela Dawe for the Guardian series, I can't understand why she would allow this person to read and ruin the Dark Angel series. I will be downloading a ebook if the 5th book isn't the last book.
