Review for Darkness Unbound by Keri Arthur

Got it with my own monies

Risa Jones is as extraordinary as her heritage. Born from a lab-enhanced clone mother and an Aedh father, she can not only talk to the souls of the dying and the dead, but she can see the reapers and walk the gray fields that divide this world from the next.

They are skill she rarely uses, however, preferring to concentrate on the business she shares with her two best friends. But when her mother asks her to help the parents of a little girl locked in a coma, she reluctantly agrees. What she discovers scares the hell out of her. Because the little girl’s soul no longer resides in her body, and it wasn’t death and the reapers that took her.

Someone had ripped her soul from her flesh.

As it turns out, a creature consuming the souls of the innocent–and not so innocent–is the least of her problems.

Because someone wants to rip open the gates that divided hell from earth, and Risa is a key component in their plans.

And the only person standing between her and disaster is a reaper who isn’t exactly on her side.

I first fell in love with Keri Arthurs work's when discovering the epic love story that is Riley and Quinn. To say I was sad to see their story come to a conclusion was an understatement. I secretly held out for another book. It was just one of those series you didnt want to end. In fact I was ready to see Riley kicking butt while taking care of a baby.
But if anyone could take their place in my heart it was little Risa all grown up and facing challenges of her own.
The cover art is just brilliant. And even though the saying is that you shouldn't judge a book by it's cover, it is eye catching.

Having read the Riley Jenson series and knowing how she saved Risa and helped Dia, her mother, out before it was nice to see little Rissa all grown up and facing the same problems Riley seemed to run into.

This book was one I could not put down, I settled in my own little world and would not step out of it at all as I kept turning the pages in anticipation.
I must say, I love how the ending is a cliff hanger despite the death of a key character. Not going to say which, just letting that teaser out so fellow readers will have added incentive to buy the book.

I am counting down the days until the next installment of the series is released and the book is added to my library as it is a guaranteed re-read.

5 Stars!
