Engelsblut (Guild Hunter #3)
Before I write the review, do yo ever guessed why Naasir never appear in this book?
The answer is...
He's so naughty, so Raphael change him as a cutie little white tiger, and take him as accessories at his shoulder..
Just kidding :P
Now,for the review
What I must said?
After my long time waiting for this book, 2 months, if you want to know, I'm almost weep when this book finally arrived at my home. And I don't wanna waste a time, that night I read it and I found, when ...more
First read: Dec 30th 2013
Gosh, how I enjoy reading this series. Especially about Elena and Raphael. They truly are one of my all time fav couples. They simply support each other so well and their love is unbreakable. Even when it at times seems that one might be in a bad and cold place, the other doesn't give up and pulls till they see light again. Their journey is amazing and this new adventure hits very close to Raphael's past and heart. We also ...more
Although Elena is now an angel, she is still very young in the immortal world. With the help of her lover, archangel Raphael and his Seven, those that have vowed their loyalty to him, Elena is getting stronger and wise in the immortal ways every day. She is able to fly now, although the vertical lift off and endurance still eludes her. Now that she is stronger, ...more
1. They are seven of the hottest vamps and angels out there! Singh answered my call to heaven for a book about angels and vampires. Sexy angels + Sexy vampires = enflamed panties. Genius!
2. They like to trash talk like this:
“Sure you can handle me, pretty, pretty Bluebell?”
“Did I ever tell you about my snakeskin boots?”
“I do think I need some new feathers for my pillow.”
3. They dress like GQ models in black-on-black suits. Venom, you smexy beast!
4. Even bet ...more
A Buddy Read with my Wednesday Warrior lovers at BB&B! Make the warriors angels, and we go nuts!
Raphael, the Archangel of New York and his newly made consort, the angel in training and hunter extraordinaire Elena, are still trying to figure out how a relationship of a very human and recently mortal hunter and a very powerful, over 1000 years old Archangel, son of two of the most powerful ancient Archangels and member of the Cadre, could possibly work and be fair and satisfying for ...more
I'm pretty behind on reviews so this one will be shorter.
The series is picking up for me now in this third book. There is an old power rising and it is affecting the Angels in ways they didn't predict. Elena must be there for Raphael to help him through some of his more human feelings as the power rises and he has to decide whether to kill it or wait and see if the long sleeping Angel well be sane when it wakes.
I really liked the premise ...more
05/10/2016 Buddy read with my amazing friends over at BB&B.
A consort was more than a lover, more than a wife. She was ... someone with whom an archangel could discuss the darkest of secrets, someone he could trust to speak only the truth, even if it wasn’t something he wanted to hear.
Elena Deveraux has barely returned to New York after the devastating events of Beijing, before her skills as a vampire hunter is needed. A vampire attacks a girls’ school, the very school where her half-s...more
This book takes us back to New York and all the family and friends that Elena hasn’t seen since being Made. I’ve been eager to see the reaction to Elena’s wings since the end of the first book, ...more
I couldn’t care less about these crazy archangels who were trying to usurp each other’s powers. So far I would say I enjoy this series just because of Raphael, a super hot archangel hero with a pr ...more
He would not hurt her, this hunter with a mortal heart who held his own in her hands.
Nalini Singh knows how to write relationships. It is always beautiful the way she captures the magical feelings of falling in love. She has a way of pulling you in and making you feel all of those wonderful moments. I noticed it in the psy-changling series, and in this one. Along with writing the feelings of new ...more
The numerous sex scenes led to boredom and skimming, not because they weren't hot, they were, there were just too damn many of them. Especially if y ...more
When I read the 1st book a year ago, I was feeling somewhat lukewarm, and then, by the 2nd book, I started truly enjoying it. This book, however, has me realize how much I appreciate the author’s craft: the world-building, the plot, the characters – I love it.
The plot is more on the slow side, but for once, I am actually totally OK with that. There is a nice gradual build-up to every development in the plot and characters. It is fun discoveri ...more
I think the overall plot here was a little thin, and I got sick of Elena's family "problem" stuff. The romance stuff was RACY and well done, but most the time I got distracted about where their wings were going during all this...ahem...athletics.
I do enjoy this author;s writing, just thought I could use some more conflict and plot instead of teh sexing. Of course I'll read the next one, haha.
I COULD NOT FUCKING FINISH IT.
And I used to love it. I used to love it a lot. People change. Indeed they do.
What made me feel this way? There's no fucking story. It's all about Raphael banging Elena, Elena banging Raphael and so on. I also have a big problem with Raphael's caveman attitude. Nope, cannot stand it.
So that's it for me. I'm dropping the series. S ...more
2nd Read - September 2016

Swathed in the silken shadows of the deepest night, New York was the same . . . and altered beyond compare.
Elena and Raphael are back in New York. Elena is still trying to adjust to her wings to becoming stronger and to dealing with mortality or immortality. But throughout other things are stirring. Weather patterns are changing and a lot of the Cadre are becoming even more unpredictable than before. There is once again no rest for the wicked as there are more murders to solve that leads Rap ...more
Oct. 10, 2016: 4 stars
I think the reason I like these so much better the second time around is because I’m not reading them back to back. Elena’s flashbacks aren’t as bothersome when there is some time between books. I had been really irritated with them the first time because they were repetitive with so little new info learned from them.
The plot was weak. Elena and Raphael were dealing with personal issues and some of the weird stuff that was going on, but for most of the ...more
Swathed in the silken shadows of deepest night, New York was the same . . . and altered beyond compare. Once Elena had watched angels take flight from the light-filled column of the Tower as she sat in front of the distant window of her cherished apartment. Now, she was one of those angels, perched high atop a balcony that had no railing, nothing to prevent a deadly fall.
Except of course, she would no longer fall.
Her wings were stronger now. She w ...more

Re-read January 2015
Re-read 31st March 2013:
I am so sorry that I finished it again! This series NEVER gets old.
Re-read: I don't know how Nalini Singh does it but her books are amazing. I love the developing relationship of Elena and Raphael, the way they struggle to be what the other one needs.
Action urban fantasy and paranormal romance combination. Lyrical and sensual Nalini Singh's writing creates a sharp contrast with the brutality and horror of the crimes she puts in her stories. It all starts with the murders in girl's school and pools of blood, and continues in a wave of dark and cruel crimes spreading throughout the city. Plot is interesting, enough action, good pacing, some humour - it kept my attention.
On a romantic front - there are more explicit sex scenes here than I'v ...more
Still good. Both book #2 and #3 doesn't beat book #1 though. Not even close. I do not know why, but I find this book (and book two) a bit boring at times, or more correctly heavy. I mean, I love everything; the world, the characters, the plot, but still....there's something missing that should make my heart beat fast in excitement...

That made her pause. "Husband" was too human, "partner" factually wrong for a being as powerful as an archangel, "mate"...perhaps. But none of it was quite right. "Mine," she said at last.
He blinked and when he raised his lashes again, the blue was liquid fire. Yes, that will do. "But for public consumption, you are my consort."
"Consort," she murmured, tasting the word, feeling it's shape. "Yes, that fits.”
