Wings of silver. Wings of blue. Mortal heart. Broken dreams. Shatter. Shatter. Shatter. A sundering. A grave. I see the end. I see. . .
The world is in chaos as the power surge of the Cascade rises to a devastating crescendo. In furiously resisting its attempts to turn Elena into a vessel for Raphael’s power, Elena and her archangel are irrevocably changed. . .far beyond the prophecy of a cursed Ancient.
At the same time, violent and eerie events around the world threaten to wipe out entire populations. And in the Archangel Lijuan’s former territory, an unnatural fog weaves through the land, leaving only a bone-chilling silence in its wake. Soon it becomes clear that even the archangels are not immune to this deadly evil. This time, even the combined power of the Cadre may not be enough. . .
This war could end them all.

I have finally caught up on the Guild Hunter series by Nalini Singh. I’ve wanted to catch up on this series since I read the first book in 2014. I’ll be able to dive right into the next release this year (2020). Heck Yes!!!

If you read Archangel’s Prophecy, then you know that Nalini Singh left readers with a cliffhanger. I couldn’t wait to dive into Archangel’s War to find out what would happen to Elena and Raphael. 

I don’t want to give anything away for readers that have not read this book yet, so here are some things I enjoyed about this book.

1. The relationship between Raphael and Elena and how no-one and nothing can get in between them. Not even the Cascade. They are unstoppable, and these two love each other unconditionally. You can see it in this book, as well as the previous books in the series. This book, though, proves they would rather die together instead of life without the other. Be prepared for lots of twists and turns with these two, especially after the previous book’s cliffhanger.

2. Nalini Singh throws in other twists in this book that left me in shock. One of them dealing with my favorite angel (as well as other readers). Our Bluebell and his mother, known as the Hummingbird. Hummingbird has a fierce, strong side.

3. I loved the action-packed scenes between Raphael, Elena, Raphael’s Seven, and the other Cadre against Lijuan and her forces. They didn’t ever give up. Lijuan was determined to kill them all. Readers thought Lijuan was horrible in earlier books; you haven’t seen anything yet. She is one wicked Archangel who needs to be killed already. I think she is by far one of the worst villains I’ve ever read in PNR.

4. There are other Archangel’s and Ancient’s that make an appearance in this book that were fascinating. I hope some of them get their books. One of the Ancients was introduced in the previous book, and I found her entertaining.

I could go on and on many other things that I loved about this book, but the review would be too long. Nalini Singh did not disappoint with the twelfth book in the series. I was turning the pages quickly because I needed to know what happened next in the book. (I’m a fast reader.) I love Nalini’s writing style because all of her scenes are vivid in detail. Now I’m anxiously waiting for the next book to release in November. 

Overall, this book receives five stars from me, and I highly recommend it to readers of the PNR/UF genres. If you haven’t read any of Nalini Singh’s books, then when are you waiting for, get to it! 🙂 I’m so glad I made time to read this series, and I’ll have to catch up on the other books Nalini has written now.

About Nalini Singh

I've been writing as long as I can remember and all of my stories always held a thread of romance (even when I was writing about a prince who could shoot lasers out of his eyes). I love creating unique characters, love giving them happy endings and I even love the voices in my head. There's no other job I would rather be doing. In September 2002, when I got the call that Silhouette Desire wanted to buy my first book, Desert Warrior, it was a dream come true. I hope to continue living the dream until I keel over of old age on my keyboard.

I was born in Fiji and raised in New Zealand. I also spent three years living and working in Japan, during which time I took the chance to travel around Asia. I’m back in New Zealand now, but I’m always plotting new trips. If you’d like to see some of my travel snapshots, have a look at the Travel Diary page (updated every month).

So far, I've worked as a lawyer, a librarian, a candy factory general hand, a bank temp and an English teacher and not necessarily in that order. Some might call that inconsistency but I call it grist for the writer's mill.
