"Darkness Devours" by Keri Arthur



DARKNESS DEVOURS BY KERI ARTHUR

SERIES: Dark Angels #3

PUBLISHER: Piatkus
GENRE: Urban Fantasy
SOURCE: Review copy received from the publisher

SUMMARY (from Goodreads)
Half-werewolf, half-Aedh Risa Jones can enter the realm between life and death, and she can see the Reapers who collect the souls of the dead. Now, she is using her gifts—and the investigative know-how of a man who broke her heart—to find a cabal searching for the power to control time, reality, and fate. And this is besides her work for the Vampire Council, half of whom want her dead. But for now the Council needs her alive. Someone is killing blood-whore addicted vampires, and Risa must find the guilty party. If she succeeds, she may finally convince the council to lift the execution order on her life. But before she succeeds, she must first survive…

MY REVIEW

Big fan of Keri Arthur since the moment I read the first chapter of "Full Moon Rising" (Riley Jenson Guardian Series, book one), every time I receive a book of Dark Angels Series to review I'm in an ecstatic mood, and after reading this third instalment I am even more.

Everything is well written as usual, the plot is great and the action always present, but I'd say it's the chemistry between the two main characters that plays the real big role in this book. Ok, in the series. The chemistry between Risa and Azriel is incredibly powerful, and for every dialogue that makes you crack up (I still have some of them playing in my mind), there is one ready to let you melt and dream (I can assure you I have those ones still going on, as well)... I said from the very beginning there was going to be no competition between Azriel and Lucian at all, and boy if I was right! Azriel is one of my favourite characters in the urban fantasy genre and, even if years of experience with Keri Arthur's books taught me to wait until the very last moment to be all joyful for someone (or/and something), this book was gorgeously Azriel all along and I couldn't be happier about that!

So, definitely the best instalment of the series so far, but could I ever wish it to stop? Please, especially not after certain interesting developments... Thank God I don't have to wait too long to read the next unmissable book!


RATING: 4.5/5
