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.
