Review courtesy of All Things Urban Fantasy

Not reading the previous books in the Dark Angel series made it difficult for me to understand the overarching storyline and various character relationships in DARKNESS HUNTS. Luckily there was enough exposition that I didn’t feel completely lost. This book moves fast and the pace is made all the more frenetic because Risa is in a race against the clock to stop this mysterious serial killer from killing his next victim.The way she uses her ability to find and defeat him was very clever and involved a lot exciting close calls.

I admired Risa’s persistence and determination to stop the killer while being run ragged. Every time she gets one minute to calm down something else comes up making her run to the rescue. Risa is not only has to deal with being physically exhausted but also emotionally taxed with her complicated love life.

The consequences of Azriel and Risa’s growing connection to each other are discussed in detail in between the action. Sometimes relationship talk can get pretty tedious and drag the plot to a halt, but in this case the relationship dynamics were some of the best parts of the book. The previously established love triangle between Risa, Azriel, and the Aedh, Lucien became a little less complicated as Luciens redeeming qualities became less and less evident while his obvious manipulations became more prominent.

DARKNESS HUNTS is another thrilling installment in the Dark Angel series which continues to expand its unique mythology, persistent heroine, and a compelling storyline.With the cliffhanger at the end I am definitely looking forward to the next book, DARKNESS UNMASKED coming out June 4th 2013 by Signet Select.
