Review: Moon Sworn by Keri Arthur

Shape-shifting werewolf and vampire Riley Jenson is through with death–causing it, solving it, surviving it. Her soul mate, Kye Murphy, is dead–and at Riley’s own hands. Not even the seductive embrace of her vampire lover, Quinn, can fully ease her mind, for she has begun questioning everything that makes her Riley–including her job at the Directorate.

Now, the ritualistically slain bodies of ex-cons have started turning up. Reluctantly, Riley takes the case, but something even worse is waiting in the wings. For a vicious enemy from her past is determined to strip Riley of everything that gives her life any meaning: her lover, her brother–and even her own identity. Can Riley survive this ultimate assault? All she knows is, she must fight one last time to find answers, before everything goes dark forever…

There are only two problems with this book: The fact that it’s the last book and that the end wasn’t more gut-spewing-kickass take no prisoners as the past books. LOL I know weird comments, but you’ll have to read the entire series to get my meaning.

In Moon Sworn, Riley must battle old enemies and personal demons to survive this final assault. This book seemed to have a much different tone from previous Jenson novels. I don’t know if it’s because it’s a farewell novel to the series or maybe Keri Arthur ran out over-the-top issues to write about. I wish more attention had been given to Riley’s relationship with Quinn, maybe even more back story about her mother – but it is what it is.

I’ve given it four stars because even if Moon Sworn falls a bit flat – it wraps up some loose ends to the overall story line that brings Riley back full circle. Even if it’s done in a roundabout way.

So farewell Riley Jenson! I loved you from book one and because of you I’ve developed a taste for Hazelnut coffee! I'm also looking forward to Arthur’s new spin-off series featuring Risa all grown up.


Get your read on!

Great review. :) I wonder how far in the future Risa's series will be - and if Riley and Co will ever make an appearance.

Ohhhh I loved this series! I didn't start it until the summer and read them all backtoback. I agree with you that it was an odd way to wrote the last book of a series, but it still worked for me. I didn't have any real expectations probably because I hadn't had to wait for it. And, in the end, AFTER ALL THE HEARTACHE (:::sob:::) at least we got our HEA :) Great review.
