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.

While I liked it well enough, it dragged a bit, and there was no resolution...to anything. It was lacking heart. Risa came across as a pint sized Riley, and Riley is now harder than in her own series.I already have book 2 in my possession and hope this one actually picks up in plot and action.
This was soooo good and a great start to the new series by one of my fav authors. This gives us a flash forward 25 yrs from where the Riley Jensen series left off and Risa is a young successful woman with her own adventures. She co-owns a restraunt with her roommates Tao, nephew of Riley's ex Kell...
