*Review* Darkness Splintered (Dark Angels, #6) by Keri Arthur

*My Thoughts/Comments*

So, we are now six books into the Dark Angels series and yet no closer to solving a damn thing when it comes to the keys and the gates and who the actual villains really are. In fact, we are probably closer to having things blow up in Risa and Azriel's face completely. I continue to hope that instead of two steps backward, we get to the point where Risa and Azriel have finally figured out all the stupid, idiotic mistakes they've made along the way including Risa's brief blow-up with Azriel. I keep hoping that the Tao question is answered since it is obviously a lot more intense and has been shoved to the background. 

I keep hoping that Arthur gives Ilianna a break and let's her be with who she wants to be Miri, instead of who she is supposed to be with according to her parents. I keep hoping that Hunter gets thrown into a situation where someone snaps her neck or shanks her. I've had 6 books to get used to the fact that NOTHING will happen until the very last book of the series which is called Darkness Falls. I know this because Arthur did the EXACT same thing with the Riley Jenson series. I keep hoping that Arthur actually allows Rhoan, and Riley, and Quinn to play a part in ending Hunter instead of continually putting them in a situation where they are totally out of the loop and continually threatened with death.

I am glad that over the past 2 books certain characters who shall not be named have found themselves being torn asunder by Risa. It's probably the best thing that's happened to this series knowing that these two monsters who have brought nothing but bad news to Risa and gang, is no longer a part of this series. I sincerely hope the Raziq are the next foes to be defeated by Risa and Azriel. I hope that Azriel finds a way to give Risa her life back that he's pretty much taken away from her by saving her life. I also hope that Arthur doesn't fast forward 10 years into the future and we find that certain characters have lost their minds, and memories and therefore they are not still together.

If you are wondering, yes, there are a bunch of chase scenes. Yes, there are a bunch of brutal encounters with the Raziq, and things that go bump in the night. There is even the fact that apparently the witches have come over to Risa's side and have joined her in trying to find the sorceresses so Risa and Azriel can stop them.

  1. I have similar feelings about this series; the last few installments have gone no where and it seems like everything is going to be left unresolved until the final book, which seems like an impossible feat IMO. Very frustrating!
