Arthur is one of my favorite authors so I was thrilled to get the chance to read Darkness Splintered. I had read a previous book in this series and really enjoyed it however this book did skip me ahead considerably. It took me a little bit to catch up to the current events, but Arthur does a good job at catching the reader up on what had happened while still thrusting the reader right into the middle of the current action. Arthur does a great job at setting up multiple conflicts for Risa, and I liked seeing Risa allow the people she loves to help her on her quest. Darkness Splintered has Risa experiencing a roller coaster ride of emotions, but Arthur allows Risa to really grow as the book progresses. I liked seeing the stronger more focused Risa, and with Risa's mission still not complete I am looking forward to seeing what happens in her next adventure.
Received a copy of Darkness Splintered through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
