Title: Bound to Shadows
Author: Keri Arthur
Series: Riley Jenson Guardian
Genre: Urban Fantasy
Summary: In the darkness, demons come out to play . . .
and someone must bring their sins to light.
Part vampire, part werewolf, Riley Jenson knows what can happen when vamps don’t play well with others. But she’s never seen anything like this: a series of brutal murders surrounding the latest hot spot for vampire-human hookups—and the victims aren’t just killed, they’re beheaded. Now Riley is launching into action, toying with a seductive—and highly suspicious—club owner, and finding herself in the middle of another mystery: women being killed one by one, without a trace of violence.
For Riley, solving multiple cases—in a world going mad with human and vampire passions—would have been tough enough. Instead she has two jealous lovers on her hands: Kye Murphy, the amber-eyed werewolf who makes Riley’s wolf blood howl—and Quinn, the cool, elegant vamp who has over a thousand years’ experience at fulfilling women’s desires. While she’s busy juggling these two sexy beasts, Riley’s detective work takes a stunningly violent turn. Finding a murderer is now a matter of life and death. Especially since the killer has long since found her . . .
Thoughts: Riley Jenson is part vampire & part werewolf. Her guardian duties having been keeping her busy, trying to solve several cases. If that isn't enough she also has two lovers to deal with. Life is never easy in Riley's world. But this time not finding the killer first could end in deathly consequences.
I read the first book in this series Full Moon Rising back in 2006 (which seems forever ago) and was instantly hooked. Riley is a strong, kick ass and likable heroine. One character I couldn't wait to read more about. Ms. Arthur has created an intriguing world with vampires, werewolves and other creatures that go bump in the night. Every book takes you on an adventure that is non stop action right until the end. Suspenseful, shocking and very sexy.
All these facts ring true in the 8th and latest book. I enjoyed it just as much as the previous books. I'd say Bound to Shadows is one of my favorite books in the series. The tone in this one remind me a little bit of the earlier books. The situations in this story really pushed Riley to the limit, both mentally and physically. I was very happy with the out come and can't wait get my hands on book 9. If you haven't read this series yet, I suggest giving it a try
