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…
I'm not sure what to think about this one. On one hand I love that Risa and Azriel are blending in to an amazing partnership. (I really don't like her lover Lucien) But the plot line didn't really hook me. The whole blood addicted vampire storyline was a little to much, it bogged things for me. And the battle with the Rakshasa towards the end, was just too much. It pushed the book into to long a length and if I wasn't so close to the end, I would have put it down. Thankfully I kept going because I really wanted to know what happened in the end. And in true Keri Arthur fashion, the end leaves you knowing that Risa will never catch a break. She will forever be heading off into the next battle, to become kidnapped, tortured, scarred, and rescued, either by Azriel or by her own ingenuity. It's still a series I am going to continue reading. Just didn't love this one that much.
