You’re as white as a ghost. Hunter has killed someone, I said. Do you want to ring Ilianna, and make sure both she and Mirri are okay?. I was just talking to her. five minutes ago. Surely she couldn’t - This is Hunter, so anything is possible. My voice was harsher than necessary. God, what else could go wrong? If Ilianna is still at the Brindle with Mirri, tell her to stay there until further notice. Surely even Hunter wasn’t crazy enough commit murder inside the ancestral home of the witches.

Talk about Darkness Splintered

Darkness Splintered is the 6th instalment of Risa's tale, continuing on from Darkness Unmasked and opens with her still occupying a dark space, feeling betrayed by Azriel's far-reaching decisions that saved her life. However, true to character, she is able to shed her pity-party pretty early on and accept what her life has become.

Risa has lost the first 2 keys and is pulled into increasingly pressurised scenarios as the demands ramp up from those looking to get them for themselves. Madeline Hunter, evil incarnate and total nut-job (IMO :-)) and her father (another nut job) have upped the stakes in the race to get the keys and suddenly all who she cares about are at risk. It's time for Risa to step up to the plate and start fighting back - which she does admirably. There were a few twists to the plot that I found intriguing, namely, Hunter's history and the sub-plots surrounding her as well the hints of Risa's own hidden power, which the baddies seem to be more aware of than us, her erstwhile supporters! I'm so looking forward to seeing this develop (hopefully) and watch Risa as she finally kicks bad-ass butt!

From a character development perspective, Risa is growing up. Being forced into the unenviable position of being the only person able to stop Hell from taking over the earth, the pressure forces her to accept who she is, what is important to her and to realise that her dreams of her ideal future were just that - dreams! Managing reality and grasping what her heart desires is more important.

I was a little disappointed at the emotional connection between her and Azriel - in my eyes, this should be just as in-depth (although on the opposite end of the emotional scale) as the way she faces danger and the threats to her friends - with passion, determination and a well of emotion that makes you wish you were a part of her inner circle. But it isn't! While the camaraderie and banter brought a smile to my face, the love (and love-making) between her and Azriel left me just a little flat. I won't share any spoilers but the intimacy and sharing that should follow such an important part of her link with Azriel just wasn't there - it felt quite one-dimensional.

Apart from that, I am really looking forward to the next book where hopefully we'll see her succeed against all the odds!
As a long-time reader of this author, I was rather surprised that I didn't enjoy this book as much as I have the others. Half werewolf/half Aedh and now, thanks to Azriel merging his essence with her, Risa is now something more. She needs to recover the 2nd key that'll open the gates to Heaven and Hell, as well as locate the 3rd key. And all the while different factions are putting more pressure on her to get the keys for them. The threats to her friends are becoming more dangerous. She's also realized that sending Azriel away was a mistake; she loves him.

Unlike the prior books in this series, Risa is only dealing with locating the keys and the sorcerers who worked with Lucian. The other books all had a secondary mystery/investigation, adding more interest to the stories.

There is plenty of fighting action and a lot of theory detail as Risa tries to reason things out and look for clues and gates. Included in that is information from characters and action from prior books. Thankfully the author gives enough information to keep you following along even if you don't immediately recall who or what she's talking about.

This story felt very heavy. Well each story has felt heavier than the prior as tension is high, Risa is exhausted and there is very little down time as lives are at stake if she can't deliver in a short period of time. But connecting with Risa's emotions under these circumstances exhausts me, and I'm really glad there is only one more book in the series.
Keri Arthur has done it again! It never ceases to amaze me how much she can do with her words. With her hands she fashions these characters, living remarkable lives with supernatural elements who still seem relatable and humanly flawed. Her plots are out of this world and the one for the book is as usual incredibly unconventional and intricate. But she's never repetitive. If you've ever read a book by Keri Arthur and loved it, read everything she's written. Not only will you not be disappointed but you won't be bored or feel as if you're reading the same thing over and over. If you're a fan of the supernatural, every book Keri Arthur has written is a must have.

I give my rating based on plot, character development, how much emotion a book brings from you do you laugh/cry/love/mourn all of the above, and grammatical accuracy. Also, do I think the title worth buying, would I buy it again, and best of all will I read it again in the future a and this passes with flying colors on all accounts.
Wow. The author drove me nuts with her total lack of clues going our heroine's way. I mean c'mon - Risa has all these special powers & all her friends can do cool things and yet ... Nothing. Ever. Goes. Her. Way.

I found myself having trouble following all the convoluted explanations (which seemed quite forced). That inevitably led to boredom & its companion, the skimming & skipping of pages just to get to dialogue or action that made some kind of sense. All in all not the best of this series.
It was okay. I felt this book in the series was quite repetative. Risa never eats, never sleeps, and is STILL chasing the same sorcerer/sorceress. I felt it was a same ole-same ole story. Don't get me wrong, I think Keri Arthur is a fantastic author. I feel she lost interest or something in this story herself. The only thing really different is her relationship with her reaper. I am not sure I am going to read the last book in the series, I dont want to reread over and over everything that I have already read.
This series is one of the best I have read and I read all the time! The characters are well formed & likeable. Each novel gets a little deeper into the relationship of the two main characters & what makes them tick. It makes you see that even though they have extra powers and almost immortal they are still very alone unless they find true love. At times funny & other times sad, the book keeps your interest till the very end & eagerly awaiting the next installment.
