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).Read more ›
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 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!
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.

Excellent read. I enjoyed the first book in the trilogy this one was just as good. Looking foreword to ready the last one now.Published 14 months ago by Anne Morgan
So, the blurb of this book doesn't really suggest the sheer amount of 'romance' in the book. I loved the back story with the vampires, witches and magic... Read morePublished 18 months ago by Heather
She's done it again! Another fabulous read from Keri Arthur. It took a few chapters to get into it, but I'm glad I persisted! Great story and plotline. Love the Damask Circle!Published 18 months ago by Sandra Smith
You really don't have to have read either of the first two of this set of books as they stand very much on their own and have no major characters in common. Read morePublished on 25 April 2014 by Anne
