You could possibly read it as a stand-alone, but it will be incredibly confusing and you'll not understand a lot, and you'll miss a lot too. It's a good series, and definately wasn't a hardship for me to read the first 5 lol. If you like the author or pnr, you'll enjoy this series. Its a very new and interesting take on angels and vampires, and set in a kind of parallel universe, since things (minus the angels and vampires lol) are the same as they are in our world. (less)

My Thoughts:

✜ It's always all about Raphael....


...for me and well, it's good that I really like Elena too.

✜ What I didn't expect was all the fighting. I had thought they would be past that although the makeup and angry sex was worth it!


✜ Sooo much went on that there's no way I can address everything and everyone, so I'll just highlight the main things.

✜ Raphael is a-changing and things are a-happening...are they related?

✜ Caliane is a bit better but the jury is still out on her.

4 to 4 ½ AMAZING Stars

Well…I'm all caught up. DANG!!! This book is my favorite of the series thus far. It's absolutely fantastic! I would have given it 5 stars but there was a bit too much action fighting toward the end for my taste. I understand this is Urban Fantasy and that's to be expected, but, for me, it was just too much. I ended up skimming a few chapters because of it. Still, I highly recommend this series. I've had a blast reading it (I actually listened to it).

Another great story from this awesome author. I think this is the story and action that we've all been waiting for since the first book. Finally we get the fight between Raphael and the archangel of death. I simply loved it. The build up to this point is long but that's how it should be. It made the whole journey that more exciting and at the same time mysterious. And the battle itself was perfectly executed. There were some new answers, new powers and new clues about the future.

Oh my gosh, Nalini Singh!! Girl's got some serious skills in making me feel the beautiful relationship between the two main characters in this series. I actually find myself smiling when I am reading, and feeling all swoony over the beautiful words.

Never had she expected to find him, to fall so deeply, wildly, insanely in love - and sometimes, her soul-deep joy in their passionate entanglement terrified her...

...her archangel who'd never wanted her to be anything but what she was....

Angels, Archangels, Power and Love, among a galaxy of Stars


A world where angels rule as creatures of extraordinary power, to be admired from afar. Archangels hold the balance of good and evil in their hands and vampires are slaves to their angelic masters.

Where strategy saves your life and dooms thousands in a complex and deadly game of chess.

Where the most powerful Archangel fell in love with a mortal and dying he fed her ambrosia uniting them in life and death.


In this world, Cascade, is in fu

5 Fabulous Shiny Stars!!

Loved this story, and I REALLY like where the author is going with the series.

The writing, storyline, and characters were BRILLIANT!

I really enjoyed getting to know a little more about Aodhan, Illiam, and Naasir (even though I'm not quite sure what Naasir is).

Once again Raphael and Elana are passionate, charismatic, strong, stubborn, and PERFECT for one another.

Fans of the "Guild Hunter" series will not be disappointed!

I swear, nobody does urban fantasy romance better that Nalini Singh. Her world building is out of this world and her characters are awesome. I LOVE Raphael and Elena and I love this series - and this installment did not disappoint. I will read anything Singh writes and I cannot wait for her next one!

Archangel's Legion wasn't quite as engrossing as I thought it'd be. I still enjoyed it but in comparison to earlier Elena/Raphael books it was lacking in originality, excitement, and intriguing characters.

-Certain parts of the plot felt quite recycled such as Elena's Guild Hunter duties and her investigation into what was making all the vampires sick/die - I've read that sort of plot in countless other PNR/UF books so it didn't captivate me much.
I did enjoy all the stuff that was happen

After a few books with other characters/couples in the series I was a little sad to be back with Elena and Raphael. It isn’t that I don’t like them….I do, they are okay, but I feel like this has been set up in normal PNR fashion to explore multiple relationship beginnings and so I was looking forward to reading someone else’s story.

Here is the problem I have with Raphael and Elena sometimes. One minute they are great and having sex and everything is pretty wonderful and then there is some silly
October 2016 Re-read: Wow. I'd forgotten so much of this book! I was glued to the pages, waiting to see what would happen, struck by the implications of things we learned. I had my heart broken, and bursting with happiness. Just wow.

Original review:
Just when I think Nalini Singh can't possibly outdo herself, she proves me wrong. From the earliest pages in this book, until I turned the very last one, I was on the edge of my seat - unable to think of anything but needing to know what happened next

A buddy read with the Wednesday group at BB&B! We need to get our hunting on!!!

"...“My mother," he said, "has invited us to a ball."
Elena pulled a blade from one of the butter-soft forearm sheaths that had been a gift from Raphael. "Excuse me while I stab myself in the eyes-and disembowel myself while I'm at it.” ..."

We are back with The Guild hunter Elena Deveraux and the Archangel Raphael and it is one of the reasons I am becoming a bigger fan of Nalini with every passing book

26/10/2016 Buddy reading with the wonderful UF fans over at BB&B

“Eternity would mean nothing without you. For no power on this earth would I trade my Elena.”

When angels start falling from the sky and vampires start dying from an unknown disease, Guild Hunter Elena Deveraux and her Archangel consort Raphael needs to find out whether the impending Cascade could be responsible, or if a more sinister enemy is at work.

With the Tower’s defences low and time running out, Elena and Rapha

Guild Hunter novels are always so intense they cause me to lose sleep and stress out about a happy ending. This series, folks, is urban fantasy at its finest. Throughout the story, I couldn't get enough of Elena and Raphael and Illium, but I was also thrilled to get to know a few of the other members of The Seven better. Naasir and Aodhan both have significantly larger parts in this book than in any of the previous ones and their character development is super

"You are my heart."
Yeah, I admit it . . . Nalini Singh has my number.

She writes the perfect balance of romance, smut, and action, and then ties it all together with an incredibly interesting cast of characters.

This installment goes back to the core of the overarching story of Raphael and Elena.

Guild Hunter Elena Deveraux and the Archangel Raphael know they must get to the bottom of this as fast as possible to save their city--all while appearing like their forces haven’t been weakened.

Well Damn! When you think that Nalini Singh couldn't possibly have done it again she goes all the way to prove you wrong. I mean...WOW!!!(Eloquent I know.)

I have just one question for my very best author.

What can I say about this book without spoiling it? When Aly told me that this one was as good as Angels' Blood I wasn't so optimistic but this one was quite possibly better. I think this is officially my new favorite in the series and that says a lot since I absolutely LOVE the first one.

Mindy Lou's Book Review
I had thought book 5 lacked a bit of action and let's just say, book 6 made up for that. That extra action at the end just made me love this couple even more. The love that Raphael and Elena have for each other is really felt on the pages. My favorite thing to read about is a couple who are totally devoted to each other and won't allow anyone or anything to come in between them. You get that with these two. I also like that with this being book 6, I'm in no way bored with this series. It's still ...more

Amazing! Absolutely blew my mind!

Every time I read one of her books, I'm constantly struck by Nalini's Singh capability in totally capturing your attention with the story that she weaves! I love it, absolutely adore her writing.
The world she'd built in Guild Hunter series is unforgettable.
She's one of the authors I follow, hopping she'll release new books.

This book was.. huh.. I'm actually a little bit speechless after everything that I just read. Raw emotions still fights within me. Goddammit

Original Review

It's no secret that I've become a bit of a Nalini Singh fan girl since I discovered the Guild Hunter series, I'm slowly working my way through her Psy-Changeling books too and really enjoying them but Raphael and Elena will always have a special place in my heart. Because I'm such a huge fan I always have very high expectations when I pick up a new Nalini Singh book and I'm always slightly nervous that I've built

4.5 stars, Top Pick!

Queen of Paranormal Romance, Nalini Singh returns to the Guild Hunter series with Elena and Raphael. The sole reason why I fell in love with this series in the first place was because of this couple. I loved Raphael as a hero because he was this god-like creature whose power is unparalleled in the world he has created. But in the first book, we saw him succumb to a more human emotion that makes him more endearing and real: love.

ARCHANGEL'S LEGION... Sounds good to me ;)

My prediction:

There will be a war between two Archangels, and Raphael's legion of loyal vampires and angels will fight the enemy - maybe Lijuan or a new and exciting threat.


This was merely a prediction of a crazy GH fan who can't wait to read more about one of her favourite couples (Raphael and Elena, of course). So please mind the possible mistakes and don't see this as a true report of the book's content. Thank you

And also part of my Guild Hunter series read-a-thon, in which I decide to become hermit at my home in this weekend just so I can read my book in peace. Heh, sorry..not sorry :P

Brilliant, absolutely brilliant

Great plot developments. Also, I like that despite the fact that Elena and Raphael are solid, we still see subtle changes and developments to their relationship. This is such a well-written, deep, and thoughtful relationship that I would have never thought would turn out this way from just the first book.

I am not a fan of reading action scenes, especially long ones, but there is no doubt that Singh is wonderfully creative and intelligent in the way she writes her
