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."

Keri Arthur's new Dark Angels series launch expands the world of her Riley Jenson Guardian series, a generation later. Australian restaurateur Risa Jones is half werewolf, half Aedh (a race that can dissolve into mist), and daughter of earlier protagonist Dia Jones. While helping one of her clairvoyant mother's clients, Risa discovers a soul stealer. Later events reveal a calamitous plot that may involve Risa's mysterious father and the keys to hell's gates. As Risa tries to stop the soul stealer and understand the significance of the keys, she gets a little help from her friends: a hacker, an inscrutable reaper with his own game plan, and an Aedh she meets and beds along the way. A well-foreshadowed but still shocking dénouement may bother some readers, but as always, Arthur uses the sacrifice to power a thrilling ride. (Oct.)
