Penumbra by Keri Arthur

So I do love Keri Arthur, one of these days I am going to get around to reviewing all the books by her that I have read, but needless to say she is one of my go to authors when I am looking for a familiar urban fantasy, she’s just one of those people I can count on to write an enjoyable book. I enjoyed the second book in this series, so I figured I was going to enjoy this book just as much. Truth is, for the most part I really did like the book, the ending just killed me. So one of the best things about this book is the pacing and the writing. Arthur always does a great job with pacing and just storytelling in general, and I really did thing that the pacing in this book was really good, and the action in the story just kept me wanting to know more of what was going to happen next. I think part of what I really liked about this book was going along for the ride with Sam, I mean watching her figure out her powers and how to use them was really fun for me. Also, part of what makes me really like Arthur’s books is that they always have some kind of mystery element to it, and I liked how this series the mystery has to do with a whole government conspiracy/cover ups.

I know this is a rerelease of the series, which was originally published a while ago, but I figured I love her writing style, so chances are I was going to like this book as well. First off I want to mention that I didn’t read the first book in this series, which I think really threw off my enjoyment of this book in the beginning. I felt like I was playing a lot of catchup in the beginning, like I was missing out on some of the interpersonal relationship backgrounds. That being said, I was really intrigued by a couple of things right off the bat, the relationship between Sam and Gabriel and the whole Kite mystery. One of the things that I love about Keri Arthur is that she creates the great paranormal worlds that are complex but fun to follow. She makes the creatures in these world complex and so interesting. I liked her world building in this book, and like in her other books this is also a mystery based book, which I think just add to the enjoyment […]
