Archangel's Storm Guild Hunter # 4 By Nalini Singh






Title: Archangel's Blood
Author: Nalini Singh                                                   
Series: Guild Hunter # 1
Publisher: Berkley Sensation
Paperback: 339
Publication Date: March 3rd 2009
Vampire hunter Elena Deveraux knows she is the best- but she does not know if even she is good enough for this job. Hired by the dangerously beautiful archangel Raphael, a being so lethal that no mortal wants his attention, Elena knows failure is not an option—even if the task is impossible.
Because this time, it's not a wayward vamp she has to track. It's an archangel gone bad.
The job will put Elena in the midst of a killing spree like no other—and pull her to the razor's edge of passion. Even if the hunt does not destroy her, succumbing to Raphael’s seductive touch just might. For when archangels play, mortals break
In this first of the Guild Hunter Series, Nalini brings a new take on vamps and angels. Angels are the Alpha and Vamps the Omega, Hunters are the knights in the realm and humans are like mere pawns on the chessboard. Millions of humans yearn for the opportunity to become a vamp, but there is a catch- you will be in servitude to the angels for one hundred years. When those vamps fail to ome the guild hunters to the rescue, ensuring that most vamps are kept in line. In the midst of inner angel political games and law, a renegade vamp is on the loose. One so dangerous the archangel Rafael is overseeing his capture. He wants the best, and the best right now is none other than Elena. Elena finds herself trapped in a deal in a whole new world where the regular rule does not apply. Will Elena be able to survive the deadly reigns of this renegade vamp, or will she fall victim to the seemingly merciless world of angels. Not to mention she feels drawn to the archangel Rafael - who's feelings are mutual. But duty comes before love and any weakness is destroyed before it manifests. Is Elena a weakness/ Will Raphael destroy her? Definitely a great read.










Title: Archangel's Kiss
Author: Nalini Singh                                                  
Series: Guild Hunter # 2
Publisher: Berkley Sensation
Paperback: 323
Publication Date: February 2nd 2010
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—even 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…
Archangel's Kiss is somewhat a continuation of Angels'   Blood. Following the fight with Uram, Elena and Archangel Raphael almost died!!! Elena woke up from a yearlong coma to find she is lying on a lumpy bed!!! But as it turns out, she was squishing her new wings!!! She’s the first Angel to be made in modern history. Angels are born not fashioned from a single kiss. It's exceptionally odd, which makes Elena a target for the other Archangels in the powerful Cadre of Ten. Fact is, Raphael’s love for Elena, makes her his weakness… Or is she, really!
I love Nalini Singh; she is a different kind of writer! I love her train of thought and the way she writes!!! She can never go wrong in my book! This installment is another winner… and I must say I can’t wait for the next installment.










In archangel's kiss Elena must come to new terms with her state of being. She is now permanently trapped in the political and war games of the angels and vampire world. Drawn in that game many see Elena as a nuisance, some among Rafael's own cadre. When Elena is personally invited to a ball hosted by the all-powerful Lijuan- she cannot refuse- all to keep up in the political games. She must prepare herself physically and mentally. But Lijuan herself has a few new tricks up her sleeve. Can Elena survive the cunning of this new world? Will she learn to fly? Will she ever be accepted?

Vampire hunter Elena Deveraux and her lover, the lethally beautiful archangel Raphael, have returned home to New York only to face an uncompromising new evil…
A vampire has attacked a girls’ school—the assault one of sheer, vicious madness—and it is only the first act. Rampant bloodlust takes vampire after vampire, threatening to make the streets run with blood. Then Raphael himself begins to show signs of an uncontrolled rage, as inexplicable storms darken the city skyline and the earth itself shudders. The omens are suddenly terrifyingly clear.An ancient and malevolent immortal is rising. The violent winds whisper her name: Caliane. She has returned to reclaim her son, Raphael. Only one thing stands in her way: Elena, the consort who must be destroyed…
Archangel's Consort begins right after Archangel's Kiss. Elena and Archangel Raphael are back in Manhattan.  Though their relationship is stronger than ever, Elena chooses to continue being a Guild Hunter even though she is a lot weaker with her new angel anatomy!!!  Elena, is also trying to understand what being immortal means, plus she is also struggling with her human heart vs. Being an immortal angel.
Elena is also dealing with family conflicts as an astonishing unearthing is revealed. Meanwhile, vampires and even earth itself is in tumult, vamps going haywire, unexplained deaths and earthquakes…. Rumor has it that Caliane, Raphael’s supposedly insane mother is rising or is she?
Raphael and his Seven are task with searching for the resting place of
Caliane… to confirm her lunacy.
Archangel's Consort had several twists and mysteries!  (Particularly towards the end)  it was addicting!  This book had vast blend of conspiracy, anticipation, action, and romance… In this episode, we got to see more preferred characters from the previous books, more of the Seven, particularly Aodhan, Illian and Jason. Nalini Singh has penned another exceptional masterpiece, a bestseller no doubt! I loved loved it!










Elena finds herself the consort for Raphael the all-powerful archangel of NYC. But being the consort for one all so powerful means that there are new enemies at bay and even more responsibilities than before. As Rafael's consort she finds herself at the mercy of the ancient Caliane. It seems as if she is hell bent on claiming her son. Will Elana be able to prove herself worthy? Will she be able to withstand the obstacles by the awakening Ancient. Their love is put to the ultimate test.

Paperback: 310

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...
 Archangel's Blade is (in my opinion) Nalini Singh's paramount work yet!!!! This book follows Honor, a Guild Hunter. In this episode, Honor is recuperating from a ghastly vampire attack! She was held captive for months and was drained, raped, tortured and stripped of her pride. ...  For this reason, she hides in her shell, trying to break free, to be the woman she was before the incident. Except, Honor’s skills are needed, as a linguists and a translator of dead languages, Honor has been contracted by “Angel tower” to work alongside Dmitri! A man, who frightens, yet compels her!!!  Dmitri, Raphael’s second has NEVER been possessive about a woman, until…. Honor! There is something about her the calls to him. Perhaps she is HIS penance or His savior? I loved the storyline, it was emotionally compelling, intense, and mind boggling, but most importantly it was masterfully written! Nalini Singh is a passionate writer and it shows in everything she writes! Her books are entertaining, yet a puzzle, sexy and very addictive. She takes you on a journey that makes you feel … I hope she never stops writing because she brilliant!!!! And her imaginations are epic! It will be a long wait until her next Guild Hunter Series!!!










Dimitri's tale. The right hand to Raphael faces his demons in this one. And Nalini definitely brings it in this one. His clouded past is revealed as his pasts comes back to haunt him. Honor a guild hunter assigned to investigate some killings by stray vamps must unite with Rafael to defeat the culprit. But with a dark past of her own it seems as if her demons may affect her at any moment. Heart breaking tale, a true warrior spirit in all, There are no words to describe this story, a must read for all angel and vamp lovers alike.

Title: Archangel's Storm
Author: Nalini Singh                                                    
Series: Guild Hunter # 5
Publisher: Berkley Sensation
Paperback: 336
Publication Date:  September 4th 2012
With wings of midnight and an affinity for shadows, Jason courts darkness. But now, with the Archangel Neha’s consort lying murdered in the jewel-studded palace that was his prison and her rage threatening cataclysmic devastation, Jason steps into the light, knowing he must unearth the murderer before it is too late.Earning Neha’s trust comes at a price—Jason must tie himself to her bloodline through the Princess Mahiya, a woman with secrets so dangerous, she trusts no one. Least of all an enemy spymaster.With only their relentless hunt for a violent, intelligent killer to unite them, Jason and Mahiya embark on a quest that leads to a centuries-old nightmare… and to the dark storm of an unexpected passion that threatens to drench them both in blood.Enter New York Times bestselling author Nalini Singh’s darkly beautiful world of archangels and immortal power, as a pact is sealed between two souls bound by blood, stirred by desire, and driven by vengeance…


Jason’s book was a mystery. It was a bit familiar for me… it had the same storyline along with Angel’s wolf, yet it enthralls and I enjoyed it. In this book we got to know Jason, what shaped him to become the man he his and in the end… hope for Jason. I think he finally understands Elena and her human emotions.

Dimitri and honor made slight appearance in Jason’s book Raphael and Elena, and many of our old fav. In the end though, it felt like war is on the horizon, a new Archangel is in the making and something is about to happen! And I am excited to find out because it would be from Raphael and Elena’s POV.

I don’t need to wax odes to Nalini Singh’s writing, she is a legend in any lifetime and I approve. She always seems to find something interest and edge of your seat and heart wrenching and romantic to make you bit your nails and smile all at once. With that said book 2 here I come!
