Nalini Singh, the New York Times bestselling “alpha author of paranormal romance” (Booklist) returns to an immortal world of violent passion and lethal power…on the brink of a deadly archangelic war.
Angels are falling from the sky in New York, struck down by a vicious, unknown force.
Vampires are dying impossibly of disease.
Guild hunter Elena Deveraux and the Archangel Raphael must discover the source of the wave of death before it engulfs their city and their people, leaving New York a ruin and Raphael’s Tower under siege by enemy archangels.
Yet even as they fight desperately to save the city, an even darker force is stirring, its chill eyes trained on New York…and on Raphael. Rivers of crimson and nightmares given flesh, the world will never again be the same…
I’m so happy that I read Archangel’s Legion by Nalini Singh because it involves my favorite archangel/angel couple, Raphael and Elena. These two are the reason I fell hard for the Guild Hunter series by the fabulous Nalini Singh. Although I do love Raphael’s Seven too and can’t wait to read their books, Elena and Raphael will always be my favorite, until Illium aka Bluebell, finally gets his book. Illium is a sweetheart, and I need to find out who wins his heart, after everything he went through with the mortal woman he fell in love with initially. He deserves happiness like everyone else.
In the sixth installment, angels are falling from the skies, and vampires are dying from an impossible disease, and it’s up to Raphael, Elena and Raphael’s Seven to figure out what is going on in their city. An angelic war is brewing, and Raphael and Elena know it’s going to cause a lot of damage and deaths. They have to prepare for it, but in the meantime, they have other issues happening too. A dark force is also stirring, and it has eyes for Raphael, and Elena is scared for him, but she will always be there to help him. Elena also has things that have been haunting her from her past. She will never get over it until she confronts the one person that blames her for the past, which happens to be her father, who I can’t stand in the books.
I loved being back with Raphael and Elena in the sixth book, even though there was some drama in this book with a former lover/friend of Raphael. Elena showed her jealously in this book, but Raphael proved so many times how much he loved her. This book involved a lot of action between the angelic war and all the darkness that keeps showing up in the city. Lijuan is one that suspected of making all the darkness happening, but Raphael and his Seven need to be sure. Lijuan is one archangel who I wouldn’t want to mess with, and I was scared for my favorite characters. The ending though, blew me away because I wasn’t expecting it, which is one of many reasons why I love Nalini Singh’s stories. She knows how to surprise me and leave me for more. I can’t wait to dive into the next book in this series soon because I need more of the Guild Hunter series.
If you have not read this series by Nalini Singh and love PNR with angels/archangels/vampires, then I would recommend this series. It’s one of my favorites, which is why I’m trying to catch up on reading this series before the next book releases in November 2020.
