Format: Paperback
When Kirby returns home late and finds her best friend has been viciously murdered she is horrified but her night isn't over yet. Under police protection in a motel she comes under attack again only escaping with her life when Doyle steps in to help her. Meeting in such unusual circumstances doesn't help Kirby trust Doyle - what if he is in league with the killer? - but she doesn't have anyone else to turn to or anywhere to go so it looks like she'll have to accept his help. As they find out more about the murders it soon becomes clear that the deaths are linked to Kirby's childhood - something she has no memory of but that she is going to have to discover if they have any hope of finding the killer. Will she remember in time though?

Circle of Death is the second book in the Damask Circle series but as there is no continuation of the storyline and none of the previous characters make an appearance in this installment I think you could easily read this book even if you've not read Circle of Fire. That doesn't mean I don't recommend the other book in the series though because I definitely do! This series is set in the same world as Keri Arthur's Nikki & Michael series which is another series I'd really recommend.

Although Circle of Death is a paranormal romance it is definitely action packed right from the very first chapter - Kirby and Doyle are constantly up against different paranormal creatures that their enemy is sending after them & I was on the edge of my seat at times waiting to see what would happen next. Doyle is a great character & I'm liking cat shifters more & more every time I come across one. The romance between them develops nicely although I wouldn't have minded a few more bedroom scenes thrown in (but that is down to personal taste lol).

Katherine and her grandma are working for the Damask Circle. They need to track down a monster that tortures and murders children. Ethan is a cop whose niece has been kidnapped. Together he and Kat have to find the monster's hiding place. She and Ethan want each other, they maybe even really need what the other has to offer. Even though he's a shifter himself, Ethan doesn't believe in magic. The attraction between him and Kat makes their job harder instead of easier, because Ethan doesn't want to commit. His heart is broken and he's convinced he'll never be able to love someone again.

Circle of Desire is the last book in the Damask Circle trilogy. This book is my favorite of the three. There was a lot of chemistry between Ethan and Kat. The plot was interesting and there were several great cliffhangers. Ethan had to accept himself and learn a lot about his nature in just a few days time. It was long overdue and Kat was there to help and support him, but in the process he hurt her feelings several times. He didn't do that intentionally, but it happened because he was heartbroken because of something that had happened in a very important period in his life. Ethan and Kat kept pushing and pulling and it made great reading. In the meantime they also tried to solve an interesting case. I love the way Keri Arthur writes her supernatural romance and really enjoyed reading this series.

Kirby's best friend Helen has been killed and Kirby is on the run from the killer. Doyle is working on the case, he needs Kirby's help to find out who committed this murder and several other ones. The answer lies in Kirby's past and in her powers. Kirby doesn't trust anyone, but she needs to rely on Doyle and herself to stop the killer.

Kirby doesn't count on ever falling in love. She doesn't let anyone in, while she badly needs to be loved. Helen is her whole world, but when she's taken away from her, Kirby needs to learn how to survive on her own. I liked Kirby, she's vulnerable, but strong and she has a lot of power. Doyle knows she is the one from the moment he meets her, but it takes a lot of time to even convince her not to run away from him. Will he be able to win her over? I liked the attraction between the two. Bit by bit the reasons for the murders are being unravelled. The story was fast paced with a lot of action. There were some nasty monsters and a lot of gore, which made this a very interesting read. Keri Arthur writes great paranormal romances and I can't wait to read the final book in this trilogy!

Keri Arthur has always been one of my favourites in the paranormal romance genre. Her writing is like a hug from a good friend and as soon as you start reading you are enveloped into her world. It is easy to read, not overwhelming, yet she is emotive, and uses evocative storylines with some great characters on both sides of the good/bad divide.

Circle of Desire reminded me a little of the first book in this series Circle of Fire, in this book though we are missing young children not teenagers and the characters are far more gutsy and forthright.

I did find some flaws in the characters which grated on me throughout the book Katherine (Kat) was quite contradictory there would be passages where she would almost whine about what she wanted in terms of a future then she would give in to Ethan’s demands.

Ethan on the other hand came across very naive and at times a bit stupid.

Of course all this is going on while they are hunting supernatural killers and missing children including Ethan’s Niece which is a little hard to swallow.

The character who steals the show for me is Kat’s grandmother, Gwen, she is an absolute superstar and has some of the best lines in the book.

Overall, this is a really enjoyable read, I read it in one sitting, but it doesn’t take itself too seriously so it’s important that you don’t either.
