Cover Reveal: Guild Hunter

Revealed: The next in the series of Guild Hunter by Nalini Singh.

Release Date is: 30 October 2018, and this is Book 11..

Return to New York Times bestselling author Nalini Singh’s darkly passionate Guild Hunter world, where human-turned-angel Elena Deveraux, consort to Archangel Raphael, is thrust center stage into an eons-old prophecy….
Midnight and dawn, Elena’s wings are unique among angelkind…and now they’re failing. The first mortal to be turned into an immortal in angelic memory, she’s regressing. Becoming more and more human. Easier to hurt. Easier to kill.
Elena and Raphael must unearth the reason for the regression before it’s too late and Elena falls out of the sky. Yet even as they fight a furious battle for Elena’s very survival, violent forces are gathering in New York and across the world.
In China, the Archangel Favashi is showing the first signs of madness. In New York, a mysterious sinkhole filled with lava swallows a man whole. In Africa, torrential monsoon rains flood rolling deserts. And in Elena’s mind whispers a haunting voice that isn’t her own.
This time, survival may not be possible…not even for the consort of an archangel.

Frannie Cavanaugh is a good Catholic girl with a bit of a wicked streak. She has spent years keeping everyone at a distance—even her closest friends—and it seems as if her senior year is going to be more of the same . . . until Luc Cain enrols in her class. No one knows where he came from, but Frannie can’t seem to stay away from him.

What she doesn’t know is that Luc is on a mission. He’s been sent from Hell itself to claim Frannie’s soul. It should be easy—all he has to do is get her to sin, and Luc is as tempting as they come. Frannie doesn’t stand a chance. But he has to work fast because if the infernals are after her, the celestials can’t be far behind. And sure enough, it’s not long before the angel Gabriel shows up, willing to do anything to keep Luc from getting what he came for. It isn’t long before they find themselves fighting for more than just Frannie’s soul.
But if Luc fails, there will be Hell to pay . . . for all of them
Review:
Personal Demons by Lisa Desrochers, is a story about Frannie, who is your typical high school student. Then two mysterious ( and gorgeous ) boys turn up at her school, Luc and Gabe. Each begins to vie for her affections, and both have an effect on her emotions. however its more than her affections they both want.. it’s her soul. Luc is a demon sent by the devil, and Gabe is an angel sent by God. There actions and feelings dictate Frannie and her choice he must make.

“But his eyes say what he can’t. I see it, clear as day, even if she doesn’t. He’d give up his wings for her. All she’d have to do is ask.”

There was a little love triangle going on, which was well done but not always my thing. however, the whole book wasn’t completely focused on this. I loved the descriptions that Desrochers gave of hell and like the reference to the smells of each emotion.

An entertaining read, with some great scenes and a lot of humour. Would definitely recommend

Review: Archangel’s Blade by Nalini Singh

The severed head marked by a distinctive tattoo on its cheek should have been a Guild case, but dark instincts honed over hundreds of years of life compel the vampire Dmitri to take control. There is something twisted about this death, something that whispers of centuries long past…but Dmitri’s need to discover the truth is nothing to the vicious strength of his response to the hunter assigned to decipher the tattoo.

Savaged in a brutal attack that almost killed her, Honor is nowhere near ready to come face to face with the seductive vampire who is an archangel’s right hand and who wears his cruelty as boldly as his lethal sensuality…the same vampire who has been her secret obsession since the day she was old enough to understand the inexplicable, violent emotions he aroused in her.

As desire turns into a dangerous compulsion that might destroy them both, it becomes clear the past will not stay buried. Something is hunting and it will not stop until it brings a blood-soaked nightmare to life once more..

Review:

Dmitri was always an enigma, clearly very old, and very sexual. In previous books, his loyalty to Raphael is unwavering as is the Archangel’s. It was great to see his story, and the story of their friendship.

His back story was powerful and sad, and cruel. The world that Nalini Singh created is cruel, but also very beautiful. I enjoyed the flashbacks, and his point of view. The sexual smells, almost seem edible. Her descriptions of places, people, death are what I love about this author. She is undeniably one of the great Paranormal Writers right now!

“An instant later, they were kissing. It was no light brush this time, no exploring touch. This was all tongues and teeth and wicked wetness as he kissed her like a man who had rough, sweaty, dirty sex on his mind and didn’t care if she knew it.”

My Dmitri:

“While Dmitri, as the leader of Raphael’s Seven, could not accept such a weakness, the mortal he’d once been, the one who had loved a woman with a wide mouth and eyes of slanted brown . . . that man understood what it was to love so deeply it was a kind of beautiful madness.”

The Third Installment of the Guild Hunter Series starts after Elena & Raphael get back to New York, fresh from the fight. ( No Spoilers)

Problem is the weather is getting crazy and so are the residents! From Vampires going on Killing sprees to archangels going mental.. It all signifies one thing. An Ancient Archangel is rising from Sleep. Whilst dealing with the usual crap from her father, the craziness is creating a dangerous situation for innocents close to her.

Each Guild Hunter book builds on Elena’s secrets in her past, and also her relationship with tall, dark & winged.

“You are mine, Elena. If you choose to sleep in another bed, I will simply pick you up and bring you home.”

It was great to see both sides of their relationship and also the utter faith that they will fall with each other. Nalini Singh has this amazing ability to build a well thought out world and an achingly beautiful romance that screams of passion & trust. AGH! I want an angel..

That made her pause. “Husband” was too human, “partner” factually wrong for a being as powerful as an archangel, “mate”…perhaps. But none of it was quite right. “Mine,” she said at last.

He blinked and when he raised his lashes again, the blue was liquid fire. Yes, that will do. “But for public consumption, you are my consort.”

“Consort,” she murmured, tasting the word, feeling it’s shape. “Yes, that fits.”

The second instalment in the Guild Hunter Series is just as sensual, passionate and intriguing as the first.

Elena has awoken after a year in a coma, with indigo white tipped wings. Yet the world is not going to let her recover. She is a Made Angel and still Hunter Born. Which makes her a fascination among the Angels. Fascinating enough to kill.

Bodies begin to pile up once again, with a personal message directed at Elena. Her powers as an angel are developing, but she is both weak, and Raphael’s Weakness.

As Elena’s past hurts resurface and ancient Angels go mad, Raphael’s and Elena relationship is still tenuous.

“He’d kill for her, destroy for her, savage anyone who dared attempt to take her from him.
And he would never let her go…even if she begged for her freedom.”

YES!!!!

Elena’s & Raphael’s relationship was perfect. Alpha Male yumminess from Raphael and she totally kicked ass!! I love that their relationship is new and they are still trying to trust each other.

I also loved the fact that Elena’s gift was changing to something real. Not something that was too far-fetched, just perfect. I love gushing over this series.

“He knew what he was. He knew what he was capable of. He also knew that if he broke her, he’d despise himself for all eternity.”

My first Review of 2018!! I am so excited because its the first book I’ve read of 2018 as well.. Go Book Goals!! smashing them… Onto the review…

This is a re-read for me. one of my Goals this year was to read the Guild Hunter Series. It’s such a complex fantasy world and felt I needed an update.

So let’s start… Angel’s pretty much rule the world, and they are not the cute cherub’s sitting on the cloud, they are cruel, ruthless, powerful, and sexy.

The angels can create Vampires, but the price for immortality is loyalty. Some Vampires don’t remain loyal, and often need to be hunted and returned to their ‘sire’

Enter Elena. She is Hunter born. She can scent Vampires and she is the best at what she does. So when the Archangel of Manhattan needs help Hunt a very dangerous threat, he calls on Elena, but he has a problem keeping his hands off her.

OMFG! I love Raphael. I imagine he looks like Cristiano Ronaldo in my Head. Athletic, Strong, Tan… oops dropped off there.

Elena. I loved Elena. She’s fierce, funny protective of those she loves, and she isn’t a simpering moron!!

“He was trying to make me his bed buddy. I declined. He gave chase.”
… “How, exactly, did you ‘decline’ his offer?”
“By slitting his throat.”

The supporting Characters were amazing kick-ass beautiful people, and I cannot wait to read their stories.

“You know how spooky Ashwini is. She called an hour ago to tell me she has a secret stash of handheld grenade launchers she thought I might want to know about. My response was, ‘What the fuck?”

I love that Nalini Singh didn’t get all Holy. Yeah the story is about Angel’s, but It was unique, and there was no in your face, God is Good, which made me immensely happy.

Review: Blue Bloods by Melissa De La Cruz

Rating: ★★★★★

Series: Van Alen Legacy, #1

Pages: 302

Genre: YA Fantasy

Blue Bloods is the first in the Van Alen Legacy Series. It stars the lives of Fanged & Fabulous kids from Manhattan, who find out they are actually Blue Bloods- Vampire’s. So pop the Champagne, and take a trip inside the lives of the super rich & privileged ‘It’ Crowd.

I have read this book several years ago, but the series is now complete. I have a few Teen Vampire Romances, and I LOVED them.. They are addicting.

The cover, is simply genius: pearls and bite marks- perfect for the lifestyle of these young and fanged.

The book starts out with Schuyler Van Alen and her Best friend Oliver, at a club called the Bank. The club next door, Palladium, features the IT crowd, Mimi & Jack Force, and Bliss. The lines between cliques become really blurred as their fellow classmate from Duchense is killed that same night.

Schuyler & Bliss are then invited to the Committee, where they find out they are Vampires that are reincarnated after their physical shell dies after about 100 years. Except that Schuyler is different, she’s a new soul, instead of a reincarnation… & that’s not a good thing. There is something out there killing the vampire’s, and they will not be recycled.

Overall, it’s a good premise and start to the series, however, the romance between Jack and Schuyler is redundant. He’s a first class Jack-ass- and what is happening with him & his sister??!!

It was a great beginning to a series and it was filled with mythology, and overall 5/5 sparkles
