Spin off series! A Dark Angels series by: Keri Athur

I went GAGA over Australian author, Keri Arthur's Riley Jenson Guardian series last year and when I learned she was doing a  spin off series staring a very minor character from the Jenson series I was stoked. Dark Angels stars Risa Jones, a supernatural being who can enter the realm(s) between life and death and see grim reapers. In the Riley Jensen series Risa was toddler so this novel clearly takes place quite a few years in the future. Luckily the protagonist Riley from the Jensen series is a half vampire half werewolf who's life expectancy is unclear but far longer then a human life expectancy so I assume she will be just as young and sassy as always. I can wait to reunite with some of my all time favorite supernatural characters as well as get to know some new ones! I hope this novel lives up to my expectations and if my sweet baby boy gives his mommy some reading time this week I look forward to writing a review!

Title: Darkness Unbound
Series: A Dark Angels Novel
Author: Keri Arthur
Publisher: Random House ($9.99 CDN)


Being half werewolf and half Aedh, Risa Jones can enter the twilight realms between life and death and see the reapers, supernatural beings that collect the souls of the dead. But she soon makes a terrifying discovery: Some sinister force is stealing souls, preventing the dead from ever knowing the afterlife.

Reapers escort souls-not snatch them-but Risa is still unnerved when a reaper shadows her in search of someone Risa has never met: her own father, an Aedh priest, who is rumored to be tampering with the gates of hell for a dark purpose. With the help of her "aunt"-half-werewolf, half-vampire Riley Jenson-and an Aedh named Lucian who may have lost his wings but none of his sex appeal, Risa must pursue whatever shadowy practitioner of blood magic is seizing souls, and somehow stop her father . . . before all hell breaks loose.
