Nalini Singh steps back into the shadows of her heartbreakingly original world where angels rule, vampires serve, and the innocent can pay the greatest price of all ...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 by Nalini Singh Archangel’s Consort is the third book to Nalini Singh’s Guild Hunter series, and it’s just as addicting as the first two. If you haven’t started reading this series I highly recommend you read them in order, otherwise, you will miss out on reading Elena and Raphael’s relationship growing. I friggin’ love Elena and Raphael’s relationship even though Raphael can be a tad overbearing at times with his protection. Elena wants to be able to do her job as a Guild Hunter, but Raphael is a little weary on letting go without one of his Seven beings with her. She’s a new angel and with that comes weaknesses that Elena needs to live with now. In Archangel’s Consort, Elena gets a chance to learn how to fly better, but she is still grasping onto her new life with the beautiful wings that are attached to her.
In this installment of the Guild Hunter series, Raphael’s mother is showing signs of awakening from being asleep for thousands of years. She wasn’t stable back in the day, and she most likely won’t be stable in the present. Raphael’s mother wants her son, but Raphael has to protect everyone else and may end up having to destroy the one person who made him.
It’s going to be an epic battle between mother, son, and others that get in between in Archangel’s Consort. Nalini knows how to keep the action going from each book she writes in this series, and I swear each book gets better and better when I’m reading them. I even loved the intimate moments between Raphael and Elena in this book because they have grown further together. Not everyone is on board with Elena and Raphael together, especially since she is his consort. Although, in my opinion, Raphael needs Elena even more now since his mother is about to show up. They complete each other and keep each other sane.
Many things come up in this book that brings to light about Elena’s past and her present. She is dealing with a lot still, and something comes forward that makes her realize how she became a Guild Hunter. Let’s say lots of shock moments in this installment that will keep you flipping the pages to find out even more shock moments. Ahhh! =)
I’m telling you Nalini has a way of sucking the reader in the story, which is why I’m moving right along to the next book in the series. I need more. I give this book 5 full moons and highly recommend it to PNR/UF readers out there.
This is one series that has now become a favorite, and I look forward to reading way more of this series. =)
When I'm not reading and reviewing, you can find me at my day job during the week and on the weekend taking care of our little farm.
