I'm not going to dig deep in the story, because the blurb tells basically everything you need to know about the main plot and it would be hard to write a long review without giving away spoilers, and I so don't want to do that with this book, mainly because in this case, it could truly ruin your experience with Dmitri's book. But let me start in the beginning...

But I found Dmitri's character to be interesting enough to pre-order Archangel's Blade. So as a birthday gift (My birthday is on 3rd September, btw...) I bought it from the Book Depository. The book arrived a week later and I immediately fallen in love with the cover. Yes the mysterious dark, shirtless predator with 6packs in a long black leather coat and with a gun in his hand can be really eye catching, but that isn't the only thing that I love. I love the scene settings, the colors, the whole set up makes an awesome contrast. And the embossed, color of copper "Archangel's Blade" title wasn't a bad idea either. So I thought it'd look stunning on the shelf... aaaand it remained there until yesterday. That means I haven't touched it for nearly 6 months!! Not even once! How could I not pick up this treasure?? Oh yes. I was scared because it is not about the two main characters from the first 3 books who I already loved.

Man! I soooooo didn't want this book to end... I've never thought Dmitri's story would suck me in as much as Elena's and Raphael's did... that bloodsucker bastard!! The weird thing is, that Archangel's Blade was very similar to Angel's Blood ,which is my favorite in the series, so maybe I'm a little biased. We get to see Elena and Raphael in a few scenes along with Illium, Jason and Venom. And we get a tiny information about Raphael's mother too, but Nalini has carefully made sure that neither side character could overrun Dmitri's story.

Most of the readers say, a book is great when there's something unique, something new in it. Which is true, BUT, I say a book is even better, when despite the fact it's really similar to an other, there's something in it, that keeps you away from putting it down and You still like/love it instead of saying "Oh no.. not again!!"

My advice is, if you love this series, don't be afraid and while you're waiting for the next E+R story, go on, pick this up and give a chance to this dark, wicked vampire to seduce you too. I can't promise, he won't bite, though :P

“Ever had a woman say no to you, Dmitri?”

“Once.” He turned the corner with a smile that made her want to cup his face, trace those beautiful lips with her own. “I married her.”
