Image of Darkness Devours (Dark Angels)

The third novel in the Dark Angels series is an OK read. At first it seems like the author has done a good job making the book into its own story instead of just a sequel; however, a major conflict toward the end and a very open-ended conclusion make it feel like a stepping-stone to the next title. That being said, well- written, multi-layered characters and a subtle use of vampires, werewolves, reapers and other soul guides keep the story intriguing, with or without a real ending.

Half-werewolf/half-Aedh Risa Jones has enlisted her journalist ex-boyfriend to help her dig up information on a mysterious supernatural group that wants to control the world. Meanwhile, the vampire council (half of which wants her dead) has recruited her to investigate and destroy a creature that’s (literally) preying on their ranks. Both of these tasks will test not only her powers, but also her ability to stay alive. (SIGNET SELECT, July, 400 pp., $7.99)
