Damask Circle Series by Keri Arthur

Circle of Fire
Damask Circle # 1
By Keri Arthur

Circle of Fire is the first installment in the Damask Circle series by Keri Arthur. I have read all of the Nikki and Michael series and have heard wonderful things about the Riley Jensen series so I wanted to start a new Keri Arthur series and here we are.
I love Ms. Arthur's writing style and how she brings her characters to life. I am also a fan of paranormal and series so this was a match made in Heaven. The action and adventure along with the romance in this book has me hooked on this series.
I fell in love with the shifter Jon and Maddie's characters. I love the slow buildup of their relationship and the chemistry that will set your book on fire. I also like that the fact that Maddie is not a "normal" human and has flaws herself.
The mysterious plot along with a few characters I knew from the Nikki and Michael series leaves me wanting the next book now!


Sixteen teenagers taken from their homes. Eleven bodies recovered, each completely drained of blood. Some believe vampires are responsible. Jon Barnett knows that what's happening is far worse. Sent by a group of paranormal investigators known as the Damask Circle, Jon quickly becomes enmeshed in a web of black magic and realizes he needs help. But fate gives him only one choice.

Madeline Smith has retreated to an isolated farmhouse, afraid of the abilities she cannot control—abilities that have killed. But when a "ghost" brings a warning of danger and her nephew goes missing, Maddie not only has to leave her haven, she has to place her trust in a man who is neither ghost nor human. As the noose of sorcery tightens, the search for the teenagers becomes a race against time. But the greatest danger to Maddie and Jon could be the intense feelings they refuse to acknowledge but cannot ignore.

Circle of Death by Keri Arthur
Demask Circle # 2
Circle of Death is the second installment of Keri Author’s Demask Circle series.  I am a huge Keri Arthur fan, but this book is my least favorite book. 

This book has a whole lot of action and little romance.  And as always with Keri Arthur you get tons of mystery which I love.  It is always a treat to read anything that Ms. Arthur writes.  She is an asset to the paranormal genre. 

I just didn’t feel the connection between the characters like I usually do.  And I didn’t get swept up in this plot.  I am not discouraged though, I am sure the next book will be back on track with my style.


In one vicious night, Kirby Brown’s world is torn apart. Her best friend is dead, killed by a madman who is now after Kirby, and she has no idea why. When the police prove incapable of protecting Kirby, she has no choice but to trust a mysterious stranger. And while she finds herself inexplicably drawn to him, she fears the strange abilities he wields.

An investigator for the Damask Circle, Doyle Fitzgerald, has come to Melbourne, Australia, to hunt down a killer. What he doesn’t expect to find is a cadre of witches capable of controlling the elements, a sorceress determined to take that power for herself, and a broken woman who is more than she seems. Doyle is certain that the reason behind the bloodshed lies in Kirby’s past—a past she has no wish to remember. Because Doyle isn’t the only one with magic in his soul: Kirby’s special gifts have the strength to destroy the world.

Circle of Desire by Keri Arthur
Demask Circle # 3
Circle of Desire is the third installment of the Demask Circle series by Keri Arthur.  I love this series even thought I was a little disappointed with the last book.  This book picked up the pace and romance and I couldn’t put it down.

This paranormal series has quickly become one to look out for with likeable characters, mystery, and romance this series has everything you can imagine.

My only gripe is that the characters seem to be random and you don’t get much on the background or see characters in previous book get their own story.


Two children have been found dead, their souls torn from their bodies. Two more are missing, and Ethan Morgan’s niece is one of them. A dedicated cop, Ethan has every intention not only of bringing her back alive but of catching the monster behind these kidnappings. And he will use anyone and everyone to achieve those aims—even a crazy woman who claims to be a witch. But time is ticking. The victims rarely stay alive for more than seven days. Four of those days have already passed.

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. The last thing Kat needs is interference from a cop who has no idea what he’s up against. But the greatest threat to Kat may come not from the forces of darkness, but from the man she is beginning to love. Because Ethan is a werewolf... and the full moon is rising.
