An astral killer has set his eyes on Risa and he is taunting the Directorate at the same time.
Darkness Hunts starts with Risa trying to talk to a lost one (a ghost of a man who wasn't to supposed to die, so there was no reaper to lead him away). She interrupts a killer on the astral plane and, unfortunately for her, the encounter intrigues him. As she explains to Ilianna he is 'someone who brings a very fresh approach to the business of being insane.'
How the killer knows everything about her weapons is not explained. I can understand everything else (he does have a hacker accomplice, after all), but that particular titbit is not widely known.

As for the search for the keys storyline, finally the events are moving forward. Risa finally finds out more about her father's past and about Lucian (now, that part was particular satisfying).
There are many changes in Darkness Hunts, both around Risa and within her. Some of those changes are left unexplored here, but that takes nothing out of the story. It only leaves a reader waiting for more.

This book has a very satisfying ending regarding the villain. And a very satisfying ending overall. ( )

I was a good third of the way into the book when I realized I was having to force myself to continue reading. It's not that its a bad book, I just wasn't in the mood for this type of book. It was a library book so felt I had to read it. Jumped to the end and read the last bit and then returned it. ( )

The fourth book picks right up after the last one and has Risa frustrated with the case of the hunt for the keys and her attraction for Azriel. No real progress on the keys front but she ends up getting involved with solving a murder for the Directorate that also dovetails with the work she does for vampire council as well. I have a feeling that not much with the keys will get done until the book series is almost done but I wouldn't be surprised if another love interest comes into the scene since Lucian was booted to the street. Light fluffy reading when I need brainless storytelling before bed. ( )

Book description
Risa Jones, half-Aedh/half-werewolf, can enter the realm between life and death. She can speak to the dying and the dead, and she can see the Reapers, collectors of souls. What she can not yet see is the identity of a stranger murdering women and draining their blood. Now Risa must summon her gifts to find him, even if it means putting her own life in danger. But Risa needn’t look far. The killer knows who she is.

He tells her his victims are infected by darkness and he’s fated to destroy them. Fascinated by Risa, he engages her in a sinister game: the chance to save the life of his next victim by deciphering his series of clues. In a race against time, she enlists the help of the Reaper Azriel.

But as an attraction between them grows, so does the fear that the stranger’s motives are only part of a larger, more dangerous scheme—one that has lured Risa and Azriel into the dark.
