New York Times bestselling author Nalini Singh takes us into a dangerous and exhilarating world where a deadly, beautiful archangel and his once-mortal consort are caught in a fury of twisted darkness…
One of the most vicious archangels in the world has disappeared. No one knows if Lijuan is dead or has chosen to Sleep the long sleep of an immortal. But with her lands falling into chaos under a rising tide of vampiric bloodlust, a mysterious and ancient order of angels known as the Luminata calls the entire Cadre together to discuss the fate of her territory.
Accompanying her archangelic lover Raphael to the Luminata compound, guild hunter-turned-angel Elena senses that all is not as it seems. Secrets echo from within the stone walls of the compound, and the deeper Elena goes, the uglier the darkness. But neither Raphael nor Elena is ready for the brutal truths hidden within—truths that will change everything Elena thinks she knows about who she is…
Nothing will ever be the same again.
I finished listening to Archangel’s Heart by Nalini Singh earlier in the summertime. I never got a chance to review it, though. This will be a quick review of the book.
This book has Raphael and Elena with the Cadre on neutral ground with the Luminata. The Luminata are impartial and don’t get involved with the drama. Although they are keeping secrets and Raphael and Elena are determined to find out those secrets.
There was quite a bit of Elena and her past in this book. It is mainly about her mother. Elena is determined to find out more about her mom’s ancestry/history in this book and may have some leads to find out if there is Vampirism in her past, making it possible for her to be an angel.
Let’s not forget about Raphael and Elena’s relationship and how it continues to grow. I think for myself, it’s repetitive since I know these two are strong together. They each have their strengths and weaknesses, but they are perfect together.
I enjoyed this installment in this series, but I was ready for more drama with Lijuan and what she is up to since she could be dead or just sleeping. I want to find out what happens next with her and Cascade.
Overall, this book gets four stars from me. I liked it but didn’t love it.
I’m ready for the next book to have another character take the lead.
If you are a fan of PNR and UF, then this book/series is for you.
