The fight against darkness rages on for the next generation—in New York Times bestselling author Keri Arthur's exciting new series set in the world of the Guardians.
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.
I really enjoyed reading this book! It was such a great start to this spin off series, that this world is the same, but that years have passed, so there are new characters and new technologies, and new history that's affecting the present!
I think one of my favourite things was learning about how Riley's life had gone in the 25-ish years between the ending of Moon Sworn and this book! Like, that they had 5 kids, two sets of twins! And that she designed shoes and was doing well in photography!
Another thing that I really liked was seeing Risa pretty much all grown up! She was a cute kid, and yeah, we also go to see her powers in work, since we didn't seen a lot with Quinn, and he wasn't half werewolf! So that was fantastic!
This book set up this series in a great way, I can't wait to see how things are going to go with the investigation into her mom's death, in her involvement with the vampire council, and with her dad and the gates of hell!
Yeah, I enjoyed this book so much, and I can't wait to read more of this fantastic series!
