Went on a bit of a search today and found some reviews of Embraced by Darkness to share. Click on the link to view the whole review:
From The Good, the Bad, and the Unread:
Ms Arthur’s storytelling is getting better and better with each book. As with the other books, Embraced has suspense, interesting concepts, terrific main and secondary characters, well developed story arcs, and the world-building is highly entertaining. ~ B review. Reviewer Gwen
From The Romance Reader.
Without the usual multitudes of men floating about her and her twin, this book gave the reader an opportunity to know the Jensons better. A little more ingenuity (or maybe even just a little more strength to the sub-plot), and this would easily have been a five-heart review. As it is, the slightly cliff-hanger ending is sure to leave fans old and new waiting with baited breath for Riley’s next adventure – be it work – or relationship-related. 4 Hearts. Reviewer Sarrah Knight
From Romantic Times (not up on the website yet)
Since we last met her, Riley’s life hasn’t gotten any less complicated as this latest first person adventure clearly demonstrates. Arthur has made a name for herself by delving into dark tales filled with terrible voilence, dark passion and scorching sex. If you like your supernatural thrills dark, these are the book for you. 4 stars. Reviewer Jill.M.Smith.
From Darque Reviews (July 17 entry. There’s also a review for Lifemate Connections; Eryn on July 22):
Embraced by Darkness is the fifth book in the Riley Jenson Guardian series, and there’s never a lull in the action and danger that surrounds Riley’s life. Though estranged from their pack, Riley and her twin brother Rhoan team up to meet the alpha’s demands and through the bullets and blood remain an amazing force. Ms. Arthur is positively one of the best urban fantasy authors in print today. The characters have been well-drawn from the start and the mysteries just keep getting better. A creative, sexy and adventure filled world that readers will just love escaping to. Reviewer Kimberly Swan
Writing wise, well, I spent all of Tuesday, then half of Wednesday reading Riley 6, because I couldn’t actually remember everything I’d written (living in another characters head for a few weeks will do that to a gal.). Then I did manage to write my allotted 7 pages. I think the muse burned out doing it though, because all she wants to do today is shoot things. So, I’ve been playing Half-Life 2 for the better part of the day. But I’m sick of being killed right now, so we’ll see what I can get done tonight 🙂
