    This story begins right after Risa┬┐s battle on the astral plane.

    This story begins right after Risa’s battle on the astral plane. Madeline Hunter, vampire leader, wants Risa to track down a mysterious killer…a killer that has taken one of Madeline’s friends as a victim. When Risa investigates, she discovers that it is some kind of spider demon, coating her victims in a web and leaving only a husk behind.

    As more people die, the pressure is on for Risa to discover who or what is behind these killings…without failing prey to the spider demon type creature herself.

    Meanwhile, Risa still must find the key. Unscrambling her father’s cryptic message is a daunting task, but when she finally discovers the possible hiding space her friend and roommate goes missing.

    Huge revelations, revenge, tragic heart ache and non-stop action keep you glued to the pages of Darkness Unmasked. What an incredible addition to this wonderfully crafted series! 4.5 Stars

    DARKNESS UNMASKED, the fifth book in the Dark Angels series, hits hard with the force of a Mack truck. Keri Arthur spares no emotions in this novel. There is a ton to keep readers happy and looking for more in this instalment.

    Major changes happen to Risa that are startling and totally blindsided me. I didn’t think Arthur would go through this route, but she did and wow, I was very surprised by the turn of events. After this, there is no way you can say Arthur is afraid of taking chances. As the tension between Risa and her lover Azriel bursts into flames, other major developments in terms of allocating the keys happen as well.

    I don’t think I was quite ready for the level of suspense in this novel. Arthur always has great action scenes but I really felt that the pacing and the suspense was taken up a notch, making this novel feel larger than life. If you’re new to this series, I highly recommend reading the books in order. While Arthur does take the time to recap past events, it’s always nice to experience them yourselves.

    One of the things I love about this series and this book in particular is the fact that Risa, the heroine makes mistakes and has her vulnerabilities. As a UF heroine, she is tough and kicks some major ass, but this novel really showcased her feelings in a way that made her admirable. Suddenly, things are so out of hand that Risa must look into herself to determine the next course of action. For me, that’s more interesting than someone who doesn’t react at all to life-altering events.

    Make no mistake, Keri Arthur has still got it! Thrilling action scenes, unsuspecting twists and a myriad of emotions make this novel one you have to read!

    Has anyone else noticed that she did not explain any of the sex scenes!!! That is what I have been waiting for and the first time was explained as "great". Hmm not so happy about it. Good plot though.
