Angel's Blood

A Guild Hunter Novel,#1

Nalini Singh’s new book Angel’s Blood, the introduction to her new series The Guild Hunters, is wonderful. This is a gritty, bloody world, much more graphic than the Psy/Changeling world, so be prepared. But if you can handle it, then this is on heck of a ride.
 
Elena Deveraux is a born hunter. She has secrets in her past involving her mother and her sisters. She has a bad relationship with her father and was kicked out at a young age. But she loves her job, hunting down vampires that have run out on their contracts with their masters, the Angels! Right after she finishes a job, she is contracted by the Archangel of New York, Raphael, to go on another hunt. This is a hunt like no other, for an Archangel. If Elena fails, she will probably die either by the hand of her prey or by Raphael. Raphael is a unique Archangel, beautiful and cruel but still possesses a heart. He is attracted to Elena as she is to him. But what kind of future can a hunter have with a creature of so much beauty and power?
 
Ms. Singh has a powerful gift. Her worlds are intricate and so easy to submerge yourself in. The angels and the vampires have a unique twist to them that is utterly fascinating. My only complaint is that we don’t get the whole story on Elena’s background, which I hope will be revealed in a subsequent book. Other than that one teensy little wrinkle this is a great read with a very yummy Archangel that you won’t want to miss.

 


Book Blurb for Angel's Blood

Nalini Singh introduces readers to a world of beauty and bloodlust, where angels hold sway over vampires.

Vampire hunter Elena Deveraux is hired by the dangerously beautiful Archangel Raphael. But this time, it's not a wayward vamp she has to track. It's an archangel gone bad.

The job will put Elena in the midst of a killing spree like no other-and pull her to the razor's edge of passion. Even if the hunt doesn't destroy her, succumbing to Raphael's seductive touch just may. For when archangels play, mortals break.
