Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

In the ninth and final entry in Arthur's deservedly popular Guardian series (after 2009's Bound to Shadows), a strong start and a terrific ending are poorly served by a disjointed middle. As series heroine Riley Jensen, a part-vampire/part-werewolf investigator, tries to find the perpetrator of a series of ritualistic murders, she must cope with her ever-changing biology and the knowledge that she killed her soul mate. She begins to contemplate leaving her job and shacking up with Quinn, her centuries-old vampire lover. Then a longstanding enemy destroys Quinn's car—with Quinn in it—and Riley's world goes black. She awakens with amnesia and struggles to regain her identity in a lengthy section that reads like an excerpt from a different book and leaves little room for resolving the series, a decision that will sorely disappoint Arthur's fans.

**Possible spoilers if you have not read the rest of the series**

After what I would call a very emotional and unexpected ending in Bound to Shadows, Moon Sworn picks up with Riley mourning her soul-mate Kye's death at her own hands, and the death of her long time friend Kade. While she has much to live for she is questioning her future as a Guardian and where her life is heading. She longs to realize her dream of having a family and leaving the violent life of a Guardian behind. However, because of the changes that are occurring in her body due to an experimental drug given to her, she is bound to the Directorate indefinitely.

When it becomes apparent that a killer is at work leaving brutally slain bodies of recently released ex-cons around, Riley is back on the job and deep in a mystery. She is once again the bold, vivacious Guardian we've come to know, determined to get the job done. But an enemy from her past is hell bent on revenge and has hatched an elaborate plan to get to her. Riley's life will never be the same and she may lose everything and everyone she loves if she cannot identify and conquer the enemy that seeks to take everything from her.

As this series has progressed the stories have become more and more exciting, always entertaining, and I've become somewhat emotionally invested in the characters and their lives. Knowing this was the last book in the series I was both excited and a little sad to read it. Without spoiling I will say that Moon Sworn gave me everything I was hoping for, for Riley Jenson. Having seen her struggle and grow throughout the series, I've always hoped that someday she would get her happily ever after, but sometimes that comes in ways one would not expect.

***I've tried not to rehash the plot, but there are some minor spoilers, so proceed with caution. :)***

This was better than the last book in the series. Although Riley had issues to work through (death of her soulmate - Kye - and a good friend - Kade - in the previous book), she remained strong while she overcame her difficulties. The beginning was a little slow (and the flashbacks to events in the previous book became a little repetitive), but the pace picked up about 1/3 of the way in. The plot was great (after it got going), with a return of the strong, determined Riley from previous books (even in the midst of some serious obstacles thrown in her way). All the issues (pain of losing her soulmate, finally accepting her love for Quinn and committing to their relationship, working out her ambivalence of being a guardian) were resolved here. The series ended in a realistic way, with a happy (and well-deserved) ending for Riley and Quinn. Not a 5-star read due to the slow and somewhat repetitive start, but well worth the read, and a satisfying 4-star ending to the series.

I've been a huge fan of this series since the beginning. I love Riley's no nonsense attitude, she is who she is and isn't going to change no matter what is thrown in her face. I love the mysteries presented in each book and feel that Keri Arthur is one of the best out there at keeping readers interested in what is going on. These books balance plot and character development perfectly, and that is why I am still around at book nine. Unfortunately, Moon Sworn was a total miss for me. There wasn't very much character progression, the mystery was unimportant, and the confrontation was anticlimactic. The book starts out a bit slow because it picks up after the end of the last one, on one hand I wanted Riley to be strong, but on the other hand I appreciate that an author is taking the time to have a character mourn a loss. How often do you really see that in other books? With the breakneck pace at which most UFs progress, it is nice to have a serious moment here or there. The ritual murders are interesting and the mystery is presented well, but everything falls apart after that. All of the sudden Riley is in another body and has to spend hundreds of pages remembering who she is. Then, there is a confrontation with the big bad guy and it's over with a lovely ending. It's just too easy. Where is the compelling page turning edge of your seat plot? Maybe it's just a personal preference issue, and everyone else will like this book, but I felt like it was largely a cop out. Simple mystery, large section of nothing happening, happy ending. I just don't like sitting through a large chunk of a book where the main character has to rehash everything we already know. It's not good enough, and not up to par with the rest of the series. I'm extremely disappointed, and now it's over. The exciting ideas presented in book one were never fully explored, now this book makes me wonder what could have been.

I just recently found the Riley Jensen Guardian series last fall...I quickly read them all and waited for Moon Sworn, impatiently. It was more than I expected and as always I was intrigued by how it would all play out considering how the last book ended, but I was pleasantly surprised with a few twists and turns I was not expecting. I love this series. It is also the first series of theis Genre that I have read and I am hooked. I was sad to see it end, but Riley is deserving of a happily ever after and I am happy that she is getting it although not in the way you would expect! She is a kick ass guardian and stays true to who she is. I love her brutal honesty, her contempt for the Directorate and her passion for her family and the life she longs to have. I will miss Riley, Quinn, Rohan, Liander and even Jack. Great job to Keri Arthur for an amazing series. Loved it! Thank you
