I really enjoyed this book. Riley is constantly growing and learning more about herself and her nature. I like what's happening with her, how she's dealing with what's happening to her as well. She's very much forced in to a lot of the stuff she's doing, and in some cases it would be almost expected for her to just want out, or get really down. But instead she's trying to make the best of it, do things as much her own way as she can. She's beginning to realise that there are parts of her nature that she's always ignored and maybe she shouldn't be. But she's still essentially her. I love her determination and how she knows what it is she really wants from life, and how she wants it even though she knows it's incredibly likely she'll never get it.

The plot for this book gripped me from the start, and it flows really well too. I like the darkness in this book, how nothing is shied away from. It's pretty graphic and a little disturbing in places, which almost feels too much, yet works really well. There aren't a whole lot of surprises here. You can see most of the stuff coming, but it's still a gripping read somehow. And Quinn is gone!! For now anyway. I really, really don't like him, but I know he'll be back. But a small break from him is better than nothing. Looking forward to getting the next one.

I won't bother rehashing the plot here, because Amazon gives far better summaries than me. Suffice to say this is the fourth Riley Jenson novel and, in my humble opinion, the best one yet. Riley is a little older and wiser when it comes to her relationships. Although the cloning saga first three books is ostensbily over, there are threads still hanging that tie in nicely with this new mystery.

Arthur deepens and darkens Riley's world, pitting our intrepid heroine against ancient gods and dangerous temptations, skillfully weaving old myths with the modern world. There is further exploration of Riley's developing psychic powers and her role as a reluctant guardian.

I hesitated in giving the last Riley book - Tempting Evil - five stars because two reoccuring points annoyed me. The first was Arthur's repeated use of the phrase "my hormones did a happy jog/shuffle/dance/etc." This continues to be an annoyance, but the plot is so fast-paced and fascinating it's now less of an annoyance. The second was Riley's relationship with Quinn, the vampire who proclaims to love her but spends a lot of time manipulating her and lying to her. In Dangerous Games, Riley re-evaluates this part of her life, clearly finally as sick of Quinn as I am.

In light of Riley coming to her senses, and because this was a thoroughly enthralling, darkly entrancing book, I'm giving Dangerous Games five stars and hoping Embraced by Darkness is as good.

Riley and her brother Rhoan are investigating the murder of several women who have been killed in what appears to be a ritualistic manor. She may have fought against becoming a Guardian but now she has been forced into the role she is determined to do her job well. As their investigations lead them to a fetish club it is up to Riley to infiltrate the club and track down the murderer.

Dangerous Games is the fourth book in the Riley Jenson series and although this probably could be read first as the main background plot has started a new storyline I would recommend reading the series in order so you know the history of the characters. I'm really enjoying this series though & would recommend it to any urban fantasy fan. To give a slight warning though - Riley is a werewolf with a strong sexual appetite who has several regular partners and also uses sex in her role as a Guardian to gain information about her enemies. If that is going to be something that bothers you then I'd suggest skipping this series but I would definitely recommend trying Keri Arthur's Nikki & Michael series or Spook Squad series instead.

I really love Riley Jenson - she is one of my favorite urban fantasy characters - she knows what & who she is and makes no apologies for her werewolf nature. She didn't ask to become a Guardian and parts of the job do bother her but since she was forced into her role she is determined to make the best of it. Her character has been through a lot since the beginning of the series with betrayals from people she trusted and physical changes after she was given experimental drugs. I'm finding it really interesting seeing how her psychic abilities are changing and am curious to see what abilities she will gain next.

I like the fact that the back story has evolved and changed in this book, the 4th of the series. I find that I get bored with series that don't vary the story that links the individual books together.
In this series, as in most I read, I find that I am somewhat drawn to the villains--kind of like those you love to hate (of course the good guys too). I did not feel that way towards the villains in this book. Take Jin for instance. From the description on the jacket, I was expecting a lot more from this character. I loved him at first and thought he and Riley were going to have a smashing good time together, but I kept waiting and waiting to find something I liked about him...other than his looks. I am pleased about getting answers to several unanswered questions that have been lingering over the last 4 books. I feel I got a little closure as more little "mysteries" were revealed.
I didn't get to see nearly enough of Kellen--hoping for more in #5. Quinn, Quinn, Quinn, when is he going to learn to give the girl the freedom to be the werewolf she is without trying to mold her into the little woman he wants her to be...
Over all, I feel that the series is changing and evolving enough to keep me interested and wanting more
