Format: Mass Market Paperback
This book is a real improvement over Keri Arthur's earlier stories in Riley Jenson, Guardian series - there is a greater focus on plotting and characterisation and less emphasis on sex to carry the story along. The book starts with Riley on holiday on an island to recover from all the events of the last year (and last four books). She is contacted there by a member of her former pack who demands that she looks into the disappearance of a pack member, Adrienne, and threatens to hurt Riley and Rhoan's mother if she doesn't comply. Shortly afterwards the Directorate ask her to look into the strange murder of a woman who appears to have been torn limb from limb by her fiancé and Riley discerns a supernatural element to the crime. She works on both investigations at the same time, also finding herself under attack from an unknown assailant, dealing with the memories that contact with her pack has dredged up, and trying to make sense of her relationship with Kellen who wants to 'go solo' with her. Riley's not sure if she can commit to that and clearly has some feelings still for vampire Quinn, although he doesn't appear in person in this story.

The plotting in this book was excellent with good pacing and with the variety of two simultaneous investigations. The caustic relationship between Riley and Salliane, 'The Cow', is very amusing, and adds some light relief in a story with a fair amount of darkness. Riley's skills are growing and strengthening and she discovers a new aspect of her nature in this book following the drug treatment that she received in the first instalment. Her brother Rhoan features in this story as he helps Riley at the denouement at the end of the story when they uncover the evil behind a string of grisly deaths from the UK to Germany to Australia.

Riley Jenson is part vampire and part werewolf. She had been forcibly given an experimental fertility drug in her past. She has developed a few interesting powers due to side effects, such as the abilities to see souls rise and spirits walk in the shadows. Riley never knows when another ability will pop up. However, they tend to come in handy during her job.

Riley and her brother, Rhoan, are Guardians; they are the super-cops, hunter-killers, of the nonhuman world.

When Blake Jenson, her family's alpha male, demands Riley help the pack, Riley is ready to tell him to get lost. Riley and Rhoan had been thrown out of the red pack back when they had been thirteen-year-old pups. But Blake throws down a verbal gauntlet when he informs Riley that should she refuse to help or fails in the mission her mother's life would be forfeit. Riley is now on the hunt for a serial killer. At the same time, Riley's lover is trying to convince her to quit her work. Yet should Riley do so, many will die.

**** This is the fifth book in the Riley Jenson Guardian series. The plot starts out immediately, on page one. Readers are able to dive right into the scenario. The action slows down two or three times during the course of the novel, but gets hotter than a blow torch by the end. This may be the fifth book of the series, but new readers will not find themselves totally lost. The author does a good job of filling them in. I found this to be a compelling story that held my attention well. ****

Embraced by Darkness is book five of the Riley Jensen, Guardian series by Keri Arthur.

Now without vampire lover Quinn and off on a vacation, Riley finds herself called back by her old, and much hated, pack alpha Blake to help him find his missing granddaughter. Throw in a club where humans can dance with the nonhumans and the problems Riley and Kellen are having over her work, and Riley's got a whole heap load of issues to deal with. And there's that serial killer that Jack wants her to find.

This book explores the relationship between Riley and Kellen, who she thinks might be her soul-mate. Except, he wants more from her than she can give, and Riley can't give up being a guardian now, even if she wanted to.

This book was alot of fun, but it had a bittersweet ending. I love how there is more than one plot going on at once in these books in this series, especially the last few. I won't bore you with a plot summary as I know other reviewers are fond of doing that. If you like this genre and the previous books in the series, you must read this one. I don't think you'll regret it. I appreciate now that there are common themes running through all the books. It took until now for me to be sure that they were actually there on purpose. I can't wait to finish the next book, which I already started at the time I'm typing this because I couldn't write the review directly after reading it. I say have at it because the book is great!

I was crazy about this series and hated to say goodbye to a favorite character. Riley was all a female lead should be - tough, tender, mean, protective, smart and beautiful. What I liked was that it was set in Australia. It had a neighborhood and family on top of the intrigue. I didn't recommend this to my more conservative sister at first (werewolf freedom ala sex) but she skips all the juicy details in all books. She enjoyed it just the same. Hard to believe!
