With wings of midnight and an affinity for shadows, Jason courts darkness. But now, with the Archangel Neha’s consort lying murdered in the jewel-studded palace that was his prison and her rage threatening cataclysmic devastation, Jason steps into the light, knowing he must unearth the murderer before it is too late.

Earning Neha’s trust comes at a price—Jason must tie hims...more

How good is this book? My plan is to call Jeaniene later today - she is a big fan - and taunt her savagely by saying things like, "I have the ARC of Archangel's Storm and you don't. Ha-ha!" The ha-ha part is very important.

If you're not familiar with the series, these books are set on the alternative version of Earth, that's just like ours, except that angels and vampires exist. Angels are not Biblical, but rather super-powered beings with wings, who occupy the ruling social strata. They are led...more

3.5 stars

Well... This did not go the way I wanted it to. As in, I didn't love it the way I expected to, the way I loved all the books in the series. I still liked it plenty, though and seeing all the characters again was amazing and NS can write. But... *sigh* It was slow. And while I like mystery books, something here just didn't get me anxious to read on. Also, I didn't connect with Jason the way I hoped. I was so intrigued by him. Still am, but... I don't know, I can't formulate my feelings c...more

Raphael’s Seven
What a compelling group of men... We never really got to know them well. We got many glimpses of their lives, their stories, but NOTHING ELSE. They are always there, loyal to Raphael like no other men, helping him in all manners, but always in the back. Well, lucky for us, NS has decided to write about them all. Now was Jason's turn. The Spymaster.

A slower read is not always bad
I agree with many reviews that mentioned this read being slower than the rest of the books in the series...more

I didn’t realize quite how much I missed Singh’s Guild Hunter world until I jumped back into it. The first book in this series, Angels’ Blood, gave me my first taste of this author and I loved it so much that I indulged in a serious glom session and inhaled the rest of her backlist. Said glom session led to me falling in love with the Psy/Changeling series as well, but even that doesn’t come close to how happy the Guild Hunter world makes me. There was just something about Elena and Raphael (and...more

One of my all-time favorite series! I'm a huge fan of Nalini's. Jason's backstory broke my heart and the ending was perfection! Thrilled the next book is back to Elena and Raphael, though. He's still my fave. :)

Review posted: Happily Ever After - Reads

This was an interesting installment in the Guild Hunter series in that, the book and characters took on a different feel than previous books. Coming off Dmitri’s story where he was a very big presence on page and just in general, Jason is quite the opposite. He has that archangel edge, being one of Raphael’s closest friends, he does what needs doing in his world, but he’s quiet, dark, very emotionally closed off. Having love in his life was an interesting...more

Who are waiting for Jason's story????

Sorry for all Bluebell's fans! I know how much you want that naughty and wicked blue winged angel have his own story. But we must save the best for the last, right? :P

- Love the wedding scene between Dmitri and Honor. And soo delighted to read about Raphael and Elena.
- Jason have same past with Elena. Both are watching their mother die in front of them. Just, in Jason's case, maybe he who...more

Excerpt

CHAPTER 1

Standing on velvet green grass still sparkling with dew, Jason watched Dmitri cup the face of the hunter he had just made his wife, the dawn sunlight kissing her skin, lighting up eyes that saw only the man in front of her.

The grounds of the Archangel Raphael’s home, Jason thought, the Hudson rushing past beyond the cliffs and a mass of fragrant roses in full bloom climbing the walls of the house itself, had seen centuries pass, but a scene such as this, they had never witnessed...more

We finally get to Jason's story and it starts out with him having to help Archangel Neha with the investigation of the murder of her consort. When Jason gets there he is drawn to the Princess Mahiya and while he knows how to investigate a crime, he has no idea what to do about love.

I really enjoyed this story way more than I thought I would. I had seen some lower ratings and I understand where they are coming from. Jason's story is not action packed...it is more subtle. You get to learn the hor...more

Jason, the spymaster and one of Raphael’s Seven has always been in the shadows. It’s what makes him good at his job, but as readers we don’t know much about him. In ARCHANGEL’S STORM, the fifth book in the Guild Hunter series, Singh reveals those long awaited secrets in a way that devastates and dazzles.

When Jason takes a blood vow that will place him front and center in Neha’s territory, he meets Princess Mahiya, a woman whose strength is silent, but is still as lethal...more

Nalini Singh is one of those few authors that nearly always makes me fall in love with her books. I have very rarely ever been disappointed, and most often end up gushing over how much I love each new installment. And Archangel’s Storm absolutely ended up being a book I love.

Jason is Raphael’s spymaster, with a very dark past. We know, from the previous books, that something terrible happened in Jason’s past and the only thing holding him to life is his loyalty to Raphael as well as Raphael’s pr...more

4.5 stars - There is reason that Singh is one of may favorite authors, her Guild Hunter world is vividly framed but it is all of the small details that make me believe in that world of powerful, dangerous - and not always sane - winged beings and in Singh's characters who are so well drawn that they have a depth that makes them 'live'.

The story, as are the leads and the romance, in Archangel's Storm is more nuanced and subtle than some of the other Guild Hunter stories but I really enjoyed it....more

*4.5 stars* Jason's my favourite out of the Raphael's elite Seven, and this book did not disappoint! As always, Singh delivers another amazing romance story that is heartbreaking and inspiring all wrapped in one nice bundle that is ARCHANGEL'S STORM. Mahiya, though not what I first expected Jason's other half to be like, is amazing in her strength and goodness of heart amidst the poisonous and ruthlessness that is Neha's court in India.

I’m going with 4.5 but giving the 5th just because I love the Guild Hunter Series writing and …no and I just LOVE the series!

Okay I didn’t do any research on this book. Its Guild Hunter and I was reading it. I did see a couple 4 star reviews come over my feed and because of that I stayed away so I didn’t get swayed one way or the other. I can see where some people might have been a little disappointed because that was me up until close to 50%. Don’t get me wrong the writing was typical Guild Hun...more

3.5 Stars

I didn't feel this book was all it could be, Jason has intrigued me from the very beginning so I was very much looking forward to his book. However, for me it fell a little flat. There are two main reasons for this:

Oh Melodrama, thy name is Archangel's Storm I am not sure Nalini Singh's writing isn't like this in every book, I know she has a penchant for being a little OTT, but normally her language strays closer to poetic and beautiful rather then cloying and repeatative. In short, it...more

4.5 stars!

Jason, the spymaster, was the focus of this book in the Guild Hunter series. What a tough childhood Jason endured, a childhood that molded his adult life. Distancing himself from people and the rest of the world, I couldn’t help but feel for him and his self-imposed aloneness. Enter Mahiya, a beautiful princess who also has endured pain and loneliness, but has fought to remain true to her spirit instead of becoming jaded. I loved their journey together, how they found the courage to tr...more

First line: Hush. Jason didn’t know how long he’d been hiding in the dark place in the ground where his mother had put him, telling him to “hush.”
Favourite quote: “I have so much love inside me, Jason. So much. And I have never been allowed to shower it on anyone—no one has wanted it. Let me stretch the wings of my heart with you.”
Song of choice: Stay by Hurts

Oh…NO! Pls tell me Jason isn't giving up HIS position as one of the Seven or I am done with this series…. okay pls………. Pls let him still be one of the seven after the search is over. please please please…


I loved it!

Jason’s book was a mystery. It was a bit familiar for me… it had the same storyline along with Angel’s wolf, yet it enthralls and I enjoyed it. In this book we got to know Jason, what shaped him to become the man he his and in the end… hope for Jason. I think he finally understands El...more

Exceeded my expectations

I do enjoy this series, but no installment has surpassed the first book as my favorite. Archangel’s Storm doesn’t do it either, but I would probably rate it top 3. Much like Archangel’s Blade, Elena and Raphael take a back seat as the story gives Jason, one of Raphael’s Seven, focus as he enters the rival territory of archangel Neha to solve the grisly murder of her consort. Jason has his own demons to face from his past, and they do challenge him; however, he must put i...more

Jason is part of Archangel Raphael’s Seven, the seven angels that have Raphael’s back and his territory centered in New York city safe. Jason is Raphael’s spy, the angel with black wings that can make himself unseen when he wants to. With his ability to see in the dark and his smoothness to not attract attention to himself, it allows him to be the shadow that goes unnoticed.

Jason also has the ability to hear things on the wind, whether it is a name or a hint of a warning. At a wedding of one of...more

I LOVE this world. I love the blood, the politics, the truly frightening alpha-males and the sex. And you know what else? I love Nalini's writing.

Archangel's Storm is perhaps the most alien of Singh's Guild Hunter books yet. Her angels and vampires are not human, even slightly, and readers are offered no human perspective with which to ease themselves into the story. Jason is not human; nor is Mahiya. Both are angels, centuries old, and Singh has a knack for showing the otherness in her leads, a...more

4 stars

A good enough read, but unfortunately not as good as Raphael and Elena or Dmitri...

Jason, Raphael's spymaster, has a new assignment. Go to Neha's court and find out who killed her consort. But to do that, he has to swear a blood oath to Mahiya, Neha's cousin. That shouldn't be a problem, until he realizes that Mahiya is a woman of many secrets, and what better challenge for a spymaster can there be?

Mahiya needs help as well, Jason represents her last chance to become free. She knows that...more

Okay so I know I am the minority here, but Archangel's Storm was my least favourite of the series so far. The writing is still beautiful, that's not the problem, it just wasn't holding my attention like all the other books have.
I was so intrigued by Jason in the previous books and desperate to learn more about his past. We did get to see his past, don't get me wrong, but the flash-backs we saw were (for me) way too short. They were mostly just little paragraphs here and there that didn't real...more

I've been writing as long as I can remember and all of my stories always held a thread of romance (even when I was writing about a prince who could shoot lasers out of his eyes). I love creating unique characters, love giving them happy endings and I even love the voices in my head. There's no other job I would rather be doing. In September 2002, when I got the call that Silhouette Desire wanted t...more
