Angels of Darkness (Guild Hunter #3.5)
Tales of alpha angels...from four alpha authors.
They soar through the night, unearthly creatures of legends and lore. Four masters of urban fantasy and paranormal romance explore the rapture of the heavens above, and the darkness below in four all-new stories of angels and guardians, and good and evil.
Angel's wolf / by Nalini Singh --
Alphas: Origins / by Ilona A
Well, I loved the Shinn entry. It is a nice one about 2 unhappy people helping each other get past the hurts life has dealt them. It is kind of a quiet story--not terribly dramatic. ...more
November 2011 Update
Okay so I may have overreacted! I now have the book, happy days people! The baboon is back in the cage!
Angel's Wolf by Nalini Singh
I find it really hard to rate novellas, this book is only 90 pages or so long; how much can you possibly pack in in that length?! Apparently for Nalini Singh, quite a bit. I think to fully appreciate th ...more
Angel’s Wolf by Nalini Singh:
In the spellbinding universe of the Guild Hunters, a vampire becomes obsessed with the seductive angel who rules the Louisiana territory. But in her court, all...more
Alphas: Origins, by Ilona Andrews - 5 stars
I loved this one. Skill and versatility from two authors I adore. The writing is so different from the typical Ilona Andrews voice and I am excited. I am excited for a new series (fingers crossed), hopefully starring Lucas and Karina.
Nocturne, by Sharon Shinn - 5 stars
My favorite. Sharon Shinn writes with elegance and an understated beauty that drags you una ...more
The Sharon Shinn story is probably not a good introduction to her Samaria world. It ...more
~4 stars, with a plus, because I'm dying for the Alpha series by Ilona Andrews and also for something written by Sharon Shinn. Hadn't expected to like her writing and when I did.. Yay.
The story by Nalini Singh wasn't as good as I hoped for, 3 stars, probably.
Meljean Brook's story was interesting. The whole Ascension-thing and the stuff the protagonsits said about the Guardians.. But I wasn't emotionally involved with them whatsoever, so I'd probably give this story 3.5 sta ...more
Nalini's story is set in her Archangel's world and center's on an Archangel called Nimra and the vampire Noel. They must find out who is out to poison the archangel. A great insight into the Archangel world!
Ilona's story is exactly what you expect from her, full of action and adventure and great character's. I would love ...more
Singh's Angel's Wolf: 3 stars
I love Nalini Singh and find most of her stuff to be great. While this story wasn't some of her best work, it was still a good read. It's set in the Guild Hunters series' world. It is a PNR anthology w/an HEA. I think you'll get more from the story if you've already read at least Angel's Blood (book one)--which is a great book.
Andrews' Alphas Origins: 3.5 stars
I love Andrews' Kate Daniels series and really lik ...more
Nocturne, by Sharon Shinn, is quite good, if predictable. A woman with a bit of a troubled past and a scathing tongue meets a hurt and despairing angel at a lonely manor . . . If you've read any Sharon Shinn, you'll know what's going to happen, but in a good way, because the story is comfortably predictable (like chocolate).
I didn't care much for Ascension, by Meljea ...more
Angel's Wolf (Singh) 4 stars. This is the first work of Singh's I've read and I really enjoyed it and will definitely try out her series. I'm not sure that I like that all the angels are cruel and inhumane (why does Raphael leave them in power?), but I get that, for at least some, it's an illusion they've created and is used as a foil for Nimra. I really enjoyed the characters of Nimra and Noel and even Christian and the rest of the c ...more
This book is one of the few anthologies that I've read in which I've actually liked every story. Some definitely more than others, but they are all good! I'll review them individually.
Angel's Wolf by Nalini Singh - 4.5 Stars
Noel, a vampire who used to work at the Tower for Raphael, and who was one of the victims in a previous Guild Hunter book, is sent to New Orleans to serve Nimra. At first he thought he was being cast out because of his weakness. He is ...more
My review will up at Smart Bitches and Trashy Books . This is the second time I participated to review for RITA Reading Challenge. And of course congratulations for Nalini Singh to get 3 RITA nominations including Angel's Wolf for the best Novella!
Noel the Vampire, recovering from the vicious attack at the refuge, is sent by Raphael to assist the angel Nimra. Nimra holds Louisiana on behalf of Raphael and someone has tried to murder her; she doesn't trust any of her Court.
Noel solves the problem and finds a new purpose, and kittens!
Alphas: Origins by Ilona Andrews ★★★
Whilst IA is one of my fav authors, this story was pretty hard to get into. By the end though, I was fully invested.
Single mother Karina, is ...more
Angel's Wolf by Nalini Singh (Guild Hunter #4.5)
Guild Hunter fans will recognize the hero from this story. Noel was the vampire in ARCHANGEL’S KISS who was brutally beaten to the point where virtually all the bones in his body were crushed. After an agonizing recovery, he is sent to Louisiana and the smoldering but heartless angel Nimra. A failed attempt on her life has cast the loyalty of all Nimra’s court in question, and Noel is sent to discover the ...more
Angel's Wolf by Nalini Singh
Singh's Guild Hunter series is not one of my favorites. I like her Psy-changeling books much better, mostly because they are PNR and the romance and world-building is good. In the Guild ...more
Angel's Wolf by Nalini Singh was a very sweet, poignant romantic mystery set in the Guild Hunter world. A very well thought out and emotional installment into the series, this novella will have readers guessing until close to the end who was out to assassinate the seductive and mysterious angel who rules her court absolutely and how the emotionally damaged vampire at her side will protect her to his last breath.
The interaction between Nimra a ...more
Angel’s Wolf by Nalini Singh – 4 stars
He is a battered, broken vampire.
She is a lethal, misunderstood angel.
But together, Noel and Nimra are more than just a broken body and a deadly blade.
Angel’s Wolf is Nalini Singh’s story in the Angels of Darkness anthology. I am truly baffled at how Singh is able to bring back shattered souls to life. She just doesn’t give them back their wings, but she lets each of her character ...more
I don’t know if there is a need for review. Just look at the author name. Of course it was great! I didn’t expect any less.
The story is about a woman being in the wrong place at the wrong time. Karina and her six-years-old daughter were attacked by strange creatures. Now she is poisoned and to survive she agreeds to feed her blood to a violent man who turns into vicious creature. That’s how she found herself in the middle of genetically muta ...more
Angel’s Wolf – Nalini Singh
The vampire Noel is sent to Louisiana by Raphael, the Archangel of New York. Nimra is the angel who ...more
Angel's Wolf ~ 4 stars ~ read from October 19-20, 2011.
I am constantly amazed at how Nalini Singh writes about these abuse characters and bring them back to life. Poor Noel was brutalized in a prior book and is what he thinks, cast off by Raphael to help another angel in Louisiana, Nimra. Nimra believes a trusted member of her staff is trying to kill her.
I loved seeing Noel and Nimra's passions return and awaken with each other. They were really sweet tog ...more
How can I say this without offending those who love Nalini Singh? this story is so typically her, the traumatic past, the supposed to be cruel but somehow always kind inside angel, the sudden urge to love someone when they spent eons lonely! Man, talk about cliché! No surprise, nothing new, I was bored reading it. 2 stars is a generous rating really.
Alphas: origin (my favorite in this Antho.)
That was a really good story, I believe if Andrews ...more
- Unsurprisingly, Meljeann Brook's instalment was my favourite, but you may need to be an existing Guardians series fan to get the best out of this story, given other reviewer comments
- The one I enjoyed next-most was Ilona Andrew's contribution. It was darker and grittier than I was expecting (I'm not surprised it ...more
Pick up any Ilona Andrews book and you know the world-building is going to be top notch. It's a skill that is hard to pull off, and they have mastered it. That skill was evident here, too, but not with the usual subtlety and deftness that ...more
