New York Times bestselling author Nalini Singh returns to her world of angelic rulers, vampiric servants, and the woman thrust into their darkly seductive world...
Vampire hunter Elena Deveraux wakes from a year-long coma to find herself changed—an angel with wings the colors of midnight and dawn—but her fragile body needs time to heal before she can take flight. Her lover, the stunningly dangerous archangel, Raphael, is used to being in control—especially when it comes to the woman he considers his own. But Elena has never done well with authority.
They've barely begun to understand each other when Raphael receives an invitation to a ball from the archangel, Lijuan. To refuse would be a sign of fatal weakness, so Raphael must ready Elena for the flight to Beijing—and to the nightmare that awaits them there. Ancient and without conscience, Lijuan holds a power that lies with the dead. And she has organized the most perfect and most vicious of welcomes for Elena.
~ 4.5 Archangel’s Kiss Stars ~
Archangel’s Kiss is book two in the Guild Hunter series by Nalini Singh.
Outstanding! Wow! Loved it!
I’m in love with this series and can’t get enough. I keep devoured the books from beginning to end. I couldn’t put this novel down. The characters are interesting and deep, the world is unique, and the action is outstanding.
Archangel’s Kiss follows Raphael and Elena who is a newly Made angel. This book focuses on Elena and Raphael’s relationship and the romance that is building between them. They must learn to trust each other on a deeper level. Raphael is the Archangel of New York. He’s powerful and controlling. Elena is no cowered and won’t let anyone control her, so for things to work between them they have to find that middle ground. This novel takes the time needed for these two to really develop their relationship.
Of course that is not all that goes on. Elena is newly Made and must develop her skills again, become stronger, and deal with her past. We are also treated to glimpses of Raphael’s past and appearances from other amazing characters too, that just pull you in and make you want to know more about them. I’ll admit, I can’t wait to read Dmitri, Venom, Naasir, Galen and IIllium’s stores. They draw you too them and each has their own past, secrets, and issues to deal with.
Archangel’s Kiss was another amazing read in the Guild Hunter series. We are treated to amazing characters who end up growing/developing, along with loads of action and all at a nice pace for the story.
