Keri Arthur is an author that has been on my radar for years. I have no idea why I never tried her, but when I saw a book one of a series available for review, I grabbed it. I”m so glad that I did. This is a very interesting world that she’s built.

Neve is Unlit. She has stained skin and no magic. In this world, she is taken from her parents and raised to be a soldier in the Nightwatch. They protect the citizens of the area from the Adlin that love to eat humans. There are also witches, people who can control either air or earth.

When Neve goes out into the desert to rescue a woman, she gets herself noticed a lot more than she would like. Especially, since she used her magic that she shouldn’t have to help save herself and her charge from the Adlin.

This was an interesting start to the series. I can’t wait to learn more about this series. It is a romance, so there is a different couple featured for the second book. I hope to learn more about this world.

Unlit Narration

5 Hearts

Justine Eyre is one of my favorite narrators (one of many). She does a great job with the narration of this series. I found myself really slipping into the world as she tells me the story. I love her choice of voices for both male and female voices. If you haven’t tried Justine’s narration, I highly recommend you give her a try.

Author: Keri Arthur

I’m a born and bred Melbourne (Australia) gal, and grew up sharing my life with dragons, elves, vampires, werewolves, shapeshifters and the occasional talking horse. Which worried my family to no end. Of course, now that I’m actually making a living sharing my life with the above-mentioned creatures, they no longer contemplate calling the men with the little white coat. When not at my keyboard, I can be found at the gym, sitting in front of the TV, or off in the countryside somewhere taking random photos.

I’m Melanie and I live in Ohio. I have two horses and a dog. I’m an animal lover, avid book reader and audiobook listener. I like to live vicariously through fictional characters. I enjoy reading and listening to mostly fictional books in the paranormal genre, including Urban Fantasy, Paranormal Romance and Horror. My favorite paranormal creatures are shifters, doesn’t matter the flavor.


  1. WOhoo Justine Eyre!
    It was a good one and I am so curious to learn more about the world too

    • I really loved this world too. I can’t wait to learn more.

  2. Well that sounds like a good start to a series. I really like the cover too.

  3. I haven’t read too much of Keri Arthur’s work but have enjoy the books that I have read. I would definitely give this one a try.

    • This was my first Keri Arthur book. I’m so glad that I gave her a try. I’ll have to check out her backlist.

  4. I still need to read her books, too. The start to this series sounds pretty good.
    I fell in love with Eyre’s narration two years ago and now perk right up when I see she’s a book/series’ narrator.

    • This was my first book from Keri Arthur. I really liked it. I perk up when I see her listed as narrator too.

  5. I had a good time with this one too

  6. OOh love the cover Melanie. I never heard of this author but your review has me interested 🙂

    • I’ve known about her for a long time and had wanted to try her, but never got around to it. I shouldn’t have waited so long.

  7. This author is also on my radar and this sounds fantastic… I may need to pick it up. THANKS!

  8. This is an author I have had on my TBR list since forever (at least it feels that way!)
    I hope I’ll find the time to pick up one of her books soon, because this sounds great!
    Awesome review, Melanie 🙂

    • Thanks Lexxie. It took me a while to pick her up too. I’m so glad that I finally did.

  9. I really enjoyed this one a lot. But the second book, Cursed, confused me since I couldn’t find any characters which were in both books. But it was good once I got into it.

    I have never heard Justine Eyre but I know she is popular, did Dread Nation also? I will get to it. I’ve been reading this series.

    • I haven’t tried the second book yet. I’m definitely going to grab it when it’s available on audio. She didn’t read Dread Nation, but reads Guild Hunter by Nalini Singh. She reads a ton of other romance stuff too.

  10. I have been wanting to try her too. I won 2 of her paperbacks but gave them away since I have a terrible time holding and reading them. I may grab this since I am curious.

    • I’ve gotten to where I don’t like reading paperbacks either. It is so much easier to hold an ereader or listen. I think the ereader is easier on my eyes too.

  11. This series does sound good! I wish I had seen this earlier.
