The fight against darkness rages on for the next generation in New York Times bestselling author Keri Arthur’s exciting 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.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Arthur excels at creating one fantastic paranormal after another. She hits the mark again with her new Dark Angels series, which focuses on kick-butt character Risa Jones. Risa’s challenges to save the world are exciting, gripping and out-and-out enjoyable. Even when something is stealing the souls of children, Darkness Unbound entertains.”

    Romantic Times

  • “Keri Arthur's new Dark Angels series launch expands the world of her Riley Jenson Guardian series, a generation later … A well-foreshadowed but still shocking dénouement may bother some readers, but as always, Arthur uses the sacrifice to power a thrilling ride.”

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marsha | 2/19/2014

    " It's a little difficult to decide if I was impatient for this to end because of other distractions or because I didn't find it too compelling. On one hand I like that this is set in Riley Jensen's universe and locale on the other it was a little overly familiar. It felt like reading a slightly less interesting installment without all the characters and situations I've come to love. Fortunately, I suspect there is hope. First installments are rarely the strongest showing. "
