From the Publisher: 

Some nights never end.
Some desires never die. . . .

Shape-shifting werewolf and vampire Riley Jenson is through with death-causing it, solving it, surviving it. Her soul mate, Kye Murphy, is dead-and at Riley's own hands. Not even the seductive embrace of her vampire lover, Quinn, can fully ease her mind, for she has begun questioning everything that makes her Riley-including her job at the Directorate.

Now, the ritualistically slain bodies of ex-cons have started turning up. Reluctantly, Riley takes the case, but something even worse is waiting in the wings. A vicious enemy from her past is determined to strip Riley of everything that gives her life any meaning: her lover, her brother-and even her own identity. Can Riley survive this ultimate assault? All she knows is, she must fight one last time to find answers, before everything goes dark forever.

My Review:

From the very first novel in this series I was in love with the protagonist Riley not just because she is a tough as nails female but because she is also a woman who loves family, yearns for true love, and has normal insecurities.  As with any Keri Arthur book release I was excited for the release of Moon Sworn but it is bitter sweet as this is the final book in the Riley Jenson Guardian Series.  From beginning to end this book was packed with suspense, conspiracy, dynamic relationships, and of course romance.  In addition to this novel tying up a few loose ends Keri Arthur also wrote a good crime mystery which I have come to expect as an integral part of each of her novels.  It wasn't my favorite book of the entire series but it met my expectations and had me shedding a few tears (and blushing) at a particular intimate moment at the end of the novel.  What I enjoyed most about this novel was the conclusion because I felt as though the entire series came full circle and Riley got the happy ending she so desperately wanted and deserved. If you  haven't read this series and you are a lover of paranormal romance and urban fantasy then The Book Guru suggests you give this series a try!
