A Guild Hunter Novel,#2
Elena Deveraux is in love but love is not always happy feelings and roses. Her new angel circumstances force Elena to re-evaluate her loyalties. She will always be a hunter but now she must also fulfill her obligations as an angel. Raphael is very territorial of his city, his vampires, and now his hunter. Elena and Raphael have always clashed when it comes to who is in charge but now the stakes have been raised. An invitation to a ball held in honor of Elena’s transition proves to be a game of hide and seek between secrets and politics. Lijuan uses the ball to her advantage by painstakingly moving the players of her game like chess pieces. Elena and Raphael must uncover what Lijuan is after before it is too late and her army has been raised.
Nalini Singh has really outdone herself with Archangels’ Kiss. I could not put this book down and continued to read well into the night. I can’t say enough about this book and the characters. Nalini continues to delve deeper into Elena and Raphael revealing the deeper core within them. She also continually keeps the reader involved with action, romance, and suspense. Nalini Singh is a master at her craft. I can’t wait for the next book.

Vampire hunter Elena Deveraux wakes from a year-long coma to find herself changed—an angel with wings the colors of midnight and dawn—but her fragile body needs time to heal before she can take flight.

They’ve barely begun to understand each other when Raphael receives an invitation to a ball from the archangel Lijuan. To refuse would be a sign of fatal weakness, so Raphael must ready Elena for the flight to Beijing—and to the nightmare that awaits them there. Ancient and without conscience, Lijuan holds a power that lies with the dead. And she has organized the most perfect and most vicious of welcomes for Elena…
