Writing Buddy Wednesday - Keri Arthur

Keri Arthur is the New York Times Best-Selling of the Riley Jensen Guardian dark urban fantasy series. (Woohoo! - proud of her for that). A former chef, Keri is one persistent and talent writer who shows that if you believe in your work, it will find a home - eventually.

I met Keri in 2002 at the RWAustralia's conference in Melbourne back when she was published by small press, ImaJinn. I purchased Dancing With The Devil and I just loved Keri's style and voice, which I think has improved with every book I've read. The last book of Keri's I read, Moon Sworn, just blew me away and ended the Riley Jensen series in a very satisfying way :))

Keri continues to be a lovely person and is just as down to earth as I first met her. Keri and I both moderate the Paranormal e-loop of the RWAus. This group is what forms the DarkSiders...

Mercy Burns is Keri's latest release. It is the second book to the Myth and Magic series. I really enjoyed Destiny Kills, but haven't had a chance to read Mercy Burns yet. Here is the blurb:

Half dragon, half woman,can she save her friend’s soul -without losing her heart?
Mercy Wilson is a reporter in the San Francisco Bay Area, but she’s also more — and less–than human. Half woman, half air dragon, she’s a ‘draman’, unable to shift shape but still able to unleash fiery energy. Now something will put her powers to the test.

Mercy’s friend Rainey has enlisted her help to solve her sister’s murder. Then a horrible murder claims Rainey’s life, leaving Mercy only five days to find the killer. If Mercy fails, according to dragon law, Rainey’s soul will be doomed to roam the earth for eternity. But how can Mercy help when she herself is a target? With nowhere else to turn, she must join forces with a sexy stranger – the mysterious man they call ‘muerte’, or death itself, who’s as irresistable as he is treacherous. But can even Death keep Mercy alive long enough to find her answers?

You can find more about Keri on her website (which includes her blog)
