Riley returns in her role as a Guardian, policing the streets of Melbourne and focusing on non-humans. This time she has a killer beheading vampires and a killer draining human victims and leaving them smiling. Is it the same killer? This is the question that confuses Riley. It doesn’t make sense but the cases seem connected. Also she has her brother and his partner wanting to create a pack with her, her over-protective vampire lover, and her sociopathic soul mate showing up to claim her. The soul mate is not the vampire either, and Riley doesn’t actually like him.

This is another fast-paced book about Riley, a werewolf/vampire hybrid. It’s not as long as her previous Riley Jenson books but has the action, bad guys, evil plots, and sexual tension of the others. Another good read from Keri Arthur. Since reading it, I’ve realised I haven’t read book 7 and am now trying to find it.
