This is the third book in Nalini Singh’s Guild Hunter series. It is written in third person from Elena Deveraux’s and Archangel Raphael’s POVs.
SPOILER ALERT: There are spoilers for the first two books in this series. Ye be warned!
Elena is finally home in New York. But home is different now. She left New York as a broken human, now she is back as an immortal angel. She left behind an apartment and is now to share space with an archangel (who happens to have a totally awesome butler!). Where before she could run around the streets of New York with ease, now she has wings to contend with. There are a lot of new challenges coming her way, but in the end, her archangel is by her side.
Something unusual is affecting the world. Weather patterns do not make sense, angels and vampires, and even archangels, are acting erratically. What do these signs point to? It’s possible a Sleeping archangel is slowly awakening. More importantly, and archangel close to Raphael. How is the world going to handle this coming change?
This is another excellent book. Nalini Singh does such a wonderful job of immersing readers into her stories. The details she incorporates are what continue to astound me. She thinks out her stories so thoroughly, being conscious of the fact that angels would need modified accommodations and seating, the concept of how immortality can create mental and physical changes, the thought about how it would be to fly; her imagination is impressive.
The cast she has is also very unique and intriguing. You have Raphael and his Seven. Elena has her Guild Hunters. The Cadre of ten archangels each have unique personalities. I know that currently Nalini seems to be writing books for each of the Seven (at least that is my hope) but you also wonder if maybe some of the cadre and others might also get a story. (FYI, check out her website. It has a lot of short stories she writes from her series. She has a cute one that includes the butler and the cook.)
So I strongly recommend continuing to read this series.
