Summary from the publisher:

Nalini Singh, the New York Times bestselling “alpha author of paranormal romance” (Booklist) returns to an immortal world of violent passion and lethal power…on the brink of a deadly archangelic war.

Angels are falling from the sky in New York, struck down by a vicious, unknown force.

Vampires are dying impossibly of disease.

Guild hunter Elena Deveraux and the Archangel Raphael must discover the source of the wave of death before it engulfs their city and their people, leaving New York a ruin and Raphael’s Tower under siege by enemy archangels.

Yet even as they fight desperately to save the city, an even darker force is stirring, its chill eyes trained on New York…and on Raphael. Rivers of crimson and nightmares given flesh, the world will never again be the same…

 

My Musings:

This was my first introduction to the novels of Nalini Singh and I didn't regret picking this one up. From the very first chapter you slowly fall in love with the powerful and mysterious archangel Raphael and his stubborn but loyal consort, the guild hunter turned angel, Elena. The characters are so well written that even having never met them before I found myself knowing them before I had ventured through more than a couple of chapters.

Singh managed to weave a complex web of storylines; Elena's traumatic childhood, Raphael's issues with the mother who went mad and tried to destroy him, an angelic war which could destroy the world and the ever growing love between our two heroes without overloading the reader.

At no point in my journey with Raphael and Elena was it easy to put down the book. The story was full of energy and I was constantly reading 'just a bit more' to find out how they dealt with the next plot twist.

I loved that Elena was still learning the role of Consort as it meant that I could learn along with her. Meaning that as a new reader I never felt like I was floundering in an Archangel political minefield.

I had only one problem with the book, and it was purely down to picking it up mid series, I struggled with the characters having two names (Ilium/Bluebell). It did take me a while to figure that out but it didn't detract from the story.

I have to say that I was more than pleasantly surprised by how much I loved this book. In fact I have downloaded all the other Guild Hunter books so I can catch up while waiting for the next installment.

Ratings:

Overall:  5 stars
Sensuality level:  3
(Whilst not overly steamy or erotic you definitely felt like you were sharing an intimate experience with the angelic couple.)

My FREE Kindle Quest

I've wanted a Kindle for what seems like forever, but haven't been able to afford it (and that's saying something since I can justify the cost of just about ANYTHING that I really want). I've tried winning one in one of the many giveaways that have taken place over the couple of years, but with no luck :( So I've decided to take matters in hand so to speak :) I've now decided that I am going to accumulate enough Swagbucks from my Swabucks searches to buy one...so in essence my new Kindle will be FREE...funded entirely by my internet searches done on Swagbucks. I'll keep you informed of the Great Kindle Quest below (in case you're interested....if not feel free to just skip over this part, but really who wouldn't be interested in a FREE Kindle?)
Goal: $119
Current Swagbucks Amazon Gift Card balance: $90.00
If you'd like to learn how you can earn Swagbucks and earn your own Amazon Gift Cards to buy books, a Kindle or other merchandise sold at Amazon contact me and I would be more than happy to tell you how I plan to go about it.
