Archangel's Enigma

Guild Hunter, #8

Archangel’s Enigma was an excellent installment in the Guild Hunter series. When rumors begin that someone is out to kill an Ancient before he wakes, Archangel Raphael decides to send one of his men to stop this from happening. Out of his Seven - Naasir is the most qualified to go though he needs the assistance of angel scholar Andi. These two head off on a fast paced and action filled adventure as they work to keep the horrible event from happening.

I don't want to say much about the plot as there is no way to do so without major spoilers. What you need to know is this book was great. It had everything that makes for a great paranormal romance; an interesting plot, a sexy hero, and a strong heroine. I’ll admit that I had some reservations about Naasir being the main focus of this book. He has never been one of my favorites of the Seven. He turned out to be an awesome character for this story. He was alpha when he needed to be but was respectful and funny and loving the rest of the time. We finally learn exactly what he is and we get to see glimpses of his childhood that were really touching. These glimpses give us a look at both Raphael and Dmitri as we have not seen them before. I also really loved Andi. She was a perfect heroine for me. She was strong when she needed to be and was a solid support for Naasir.

All of the other characters were seen in this book, and there is a set up for a future story with fan favorite Illium. This was a really solid story in this series and these two are my favorite couple beside Raphael and Elena. This is a must read for Guild Hunter fans.
