27) Circle of Desire by Keri Arthur

The Blurb :

In ten years of working for the Damask Circle, shapeshifter Katherine Tanner has never come across anything that goes after kids the way this monster does, and she has never met anything that does to them what this thing does. And it’s not something she wants to confront. But with the Circle’s resources stretched to the limits, she’s given very little choice. The last thing she needs is interference from a cop who has no idea what he’s up against.

Ethan Morgan’s niece is one of the missing children and he has every intention of not only defying the odds and bringing her back alive, but of catching the monster behind these kidnappings and bringing her to justice. Even if he has to break every law in the country to do it. And he's willing to use anyone and everyone to achieve those aims--even a crazy woman who claims to be a witch.

Forced to join forces, Ethan and Kat are drawn to each other, but fight their feelings as they struggle to uncover clues that will lead them to the monster’s lair and battle a seemingly endless supply of zombies and other dead things determined to stop them. But time is ticking away and both know the monster behind these kidnappings rarely keeps her victims alive for more than seven days. And four of those have already gone.

But the greatest threat to Kat might not come from the forces of darkness gathering around them, but from the man she is beginning to love.

Because Ethan is a werewolf...and the full moon is rising...

My Thoughts :

Before I start this review I have to tell you that this is a re-release and not a new book from Keri Artur.  The Damask Circle series is one she had published some ten years ago and they have been slowly released again with new covers.  So if you are a hardcore fan you may have read these before.  Make sure you check and avoid disappointment.

Circle of Desire is the third and so far last book in the series.  I have no idea if there are more books to come but I can only hope there will be.  The Damask Circle is mentioned in all three books and the plot revolves around people who work for them solving paranormal crimes.  However there is never any direct interaction with the Damask Circle and you never find out much about them.  A secret that hopefully will be unveiled in more books.

This third installment was just as good as the previous two.  Two unsuspecting paranormals come together and hunt a supernatural being that, for unknown reasons, is taking children's souls.  The storyline is action packed, full of romance and has some original paranormal elements.  I enjoyed reading the mystery side of things as well as finding out more about the paranormals plus the romance angle wasn't a bad thing.

Keri Arthur is a spectacular author and I have been enjoying her books for years.  I am extremely happy that these books have been released again and that I have had the pleasure of reading them.  I only hope that there will be more stories about the Damask Circle.  So far the books have been great reads and I am sure there are more tales to tell.

This edition of the book release on the 1st of April.  Make sure you check out the previous books although they are all stand alone stories so there is no need to read them in order.

I do have two of this series, and I think they are the original books. Do you know if the books have been re-written or re-edited before re-release?
