I thought for awhile that Singh was setting Illium up for his book with all the talk about his ‘lost human love’. I’m thinking now she may write Aodhan first, while he’s away from Manhattan sorting himself out. But who knows. The ending of this book left some things to be sorted out at home.(less)

So, a couple things before I get started...

1) Based on preliminary reviews, I seem to be in the minority in not adoring this book.
2) This being an ARC, I can't really tell you why that is, specifically. Sorry.
3) I am NOT in a reviewing mood today (or just lately in general, actually), but I wanted to get at least something down while this book is fresh in my mind and before I read it again.
4) This review is probably gonna suck ass. Again, sorry.

That said, keep all that in mind when reading thi
First. let me say that I love this series. It is one of my very favorites and if Illium and Aodhan don't get together soon I may lose my shit.

But, this book was just not as good as the past ones. The story was really slow and weak. There was recapping over every.single.thing. And, the side characters that we love were barely present at all. We never saw Naasir or Aodhan. We only saw a few glimpses of Bluebell. And, the rest of them had what seemed like a couple of obligatory sentences just to ma

Buckle up this book is an emotional rollercoaster ride of epic proportions. I had no idea what to expect. I certainly didn’t expect so many punches to my heart. The FEELS were unreal. They came non-stop. I honestly was a blubbering emotional basket case at the end.

And the ENDING!!!!!! O M G

I still don’t know what to say, much less write a cohesive review.

I went into this book without reading the blurb. And subsequently I had no idea what was to come. The plot just kept pummel
I love this series, but not this book. I spent nearly the entire book wanting to shake both Raphael and Elena. I can't go into any of it without going into major spoilers, which I will put in the comments instead. One thing I can mention that annoyed me that isn't a spoiler - this book has a TON of recaps. We're talking, someone could read this book and it is basically attempting to give them the background history of the last 10 books at every possible moment. Is this really needed?

Rant ahead!Contains swearing.

Are you kidding me? What did I just read? We have spend 11 books reading about Elena's transformation. Her adjusting and training and getting stronger, new powers and all the hoopla that goes with it and I get this???!! That cliffhanger sucked ass. And the next book better fix this shit or I'm not going to be happy. Not that anybody cares, but I'm extremely unhappy with this. (view spoiler)

2nd read: Still just as good the 2nd time around. I connected more after going back and reading this series in order. I’m still amazed at the lengths Raphael went to save Elena. Swoon!

1st read:Amazing!!! Ok, call me crazy but I seem to like to jump into series just to see if I'll like it. I didn't like it. I LOVED it! Like really, really loved it! I've actually never read this author before either. Again, crazy I know. I kept seeing her books pop up with so many of my book friends and I get it n
I found ARCHANGEL's PROPHECY a 4.5 star read. I'm a huge fan of Singh's writing and love the Guild Hunter storyline so you are wondering why not a straight out 5. Every once in a while you a novel in the series is a build up to the next major plot shift...ARCHANGEL'S PROPHECY is definitely one of these major plot shift books leaving you hanging at the end and left me still wondering where this book will go next. The What ifs and possibilities will leave you pondering long after you are through.

In Archangel’s Prophecy, we are back to Raphael and Elena as the main characters in this installment.  Normally, they aren’t my favorites to hang out with in this Guild Hunter series. *Gasp* I know, I know but I’ve never really warmed to Raphael. However, at least I don’t want to stab a pencil in his eye anymore so we’ve come a long way.

Midnight and dawn, Elena’s wings are unique among angelkind—and now they are failing. The first mortal to be turned into an immortal in angelic memory, she’s regressing. Becoming more and more human. Easier to hurt. Easier to kill.

🎵Original thoughts right after I finished reading & before my review ⬇⬇
I am so upset with this book right now, I don't dare rate & review it!

Why, Ms. Singh, WHY did you end it this way? Really! A cliffhanger! You are above such shenanigans. You have no need to resort to this type of ridiculousness.
The ENTIRE story is about Elena becoming something else. Then you leave us j

Nalini Singh returns to the dark and twisted world of the Guild Hunter series with ARCHANGEL'S PROPHECY. Readers are back with Elena and Raphael, the main couple of the series as they experience something very concerning. As the first mortal to be turned, Elena possesses incredible powers. However, when she starts to weaken and does not know why this causes quite a bit of alarm for them. Now, when I first heard that this was going to be another one of Elena and Raphael's books, I was a bit
Well. I was right to be worried. This book put me through the emotional wringer. And it kept me glued to the pages throughout.

But it’s not easy. It’s hard watching characters that you love go through such life altering changes, especially when it ends on a cliff-hanger.

Look, I trust Nalini Singh. I believe in her vision for the characters and that she’s going to do right by them. I’m clinging to that right now.

That being said, I don’t think I’ll be rereading this particular book until I have th

Well. Shit.

I don’t know what it is about Raphael and Elena but it takes me a little while to warm up to them, and I genuinely like them. My like for them is a new thing because I've struggled with them as characters for awhile. I can't put my finger on why but I just didn't love them as much as the other characters. That being said the development they, as individuals and as a couple, have gone through throughout this series is truly fantastic. I've

Sort of a buddy read with Robin.

After a lot of thinking I lowered the rating from 5 to 4 stars. It pained me but once the initial euphoria of the long anticipated release was over and I had some time to reflect on what happened in the book I can't with a clear conscience rate it higher. Even 4 starts is pushing it and i can only justify it because I'm so attached to this series and the characters.

I was disappointed by the fact that the rest of the recurring characters didn't play much of a role

Warning: it ends in a cliffhanger. A huge one. I got to the last page and was furiously trying to get the next page and was wondering if my ARC was defective and was missing a chapter or a page or a paragraph. It just ended with so much left open ended. It explained a little but not much. I really hope the next book is about Raphael and Elena. I’m not sure I could take it if I had to read about some random couple before getting a solid explanation.

Elena and Raphael weren’t together near

This book was hard to rate, much less review. Let me start with the fact there are 3 pretty major plots in this book:

1. - Elana seems to be regressing back to a human

2. - She has to find a killer that threatens her sister and niece

3. - In China, the Archangel Favashi is seemingly showing signs of madness ...... or something

This book kept me kind of stressed out the whole way through, you keep telling yourself "Nalini Singh won't allow this to happen .... will she?" and that sets the mood for mos

I am going to try to pack as much as I can into this spoiler free review because this book is not something to be spoiled. The reader needs to read this with their own eyes, they need to feel this book. So, no spoilers. I started this book after doing a reread of Archangel’s Heart only because I wanted to be prepared in case this book was a continuation of AH but while it is a continuation of a sort, a reread isn’t necessary. But it did help to immerse me in the world of Archangel’s and vampires ...more

There aren't enough stars for this book. I LOVED it! I never ever want to leave the Guild Hunter world. I wish Nalini would write it exclusively until the series is finished and I love her contemporary novels something fiercely!

I thought I had a grasp on what was happening in the Guild Hunter world, with Elena and Raphael, and everyone else. This book turned everything I thought I knew upside down. And to be honest, I'm shaken but with both worry and awe. Worry because I don't know what's going
Thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for providing me with an advanced copy in exchange for an honest review.


We've had a prophecy for a while now, and all of us fans have been trying to figure out what it's driving us towards. Well, obviously you already know this book is going to have some focus on that, what with it being the title and all that. ;)

This book kind of felt like more buildup, more setting up a story, with the main plotline for the book feeling like it to

Archangel's Prophecy felt so unfinished. The ending was rushed with so many unanswered questions. There's also Elena's family drama. We get this every book in which she features in. I just hope that this will be resolved in future books so we can move on from that storyline.

There are two pretty major things that happened in this book. First, Jessamy's wing is healed by Raphael. Oh my God. I gagged. Second, Favashi was in a way possessed by Lijuan (or her

Wow! Did not expect that! I mean the ENDING!!!!! Like what?!!! And an even better question, when's the next book coming out, huh?! You just can't do this to your loyal readers Nalini, nonono...

Loved the ending and can't wait to see what Nalini Singh has in store for these two. This could have been a 5 star except for the fact it dragged along. The last 10% of the book was crazy good but the first 90% was stupid slow.

I have been a fan of Nalini Singh's Guild Hunter series for a long time now and I always look forward to every new release, especially when I know it's going to be a book about Elena and Raphael (although I'm desperate for Illium or Aodan to take the spotlight too!). The blurb for Archangel's Prophecy had me slightly nervous though, that mention of Elena's angelic powers regressing and her starting to loose the immortality she

Archangel's Prophecy

Oh, I have so many mixed feelings about this book. I don’t think I had such diversified feelings about any other book in this series. As always with this series I’m enchanted with the story but, on the other hand, I wish it is a totally different tell and I truly dislike the ending.

I’m one of those people who hoped for Aodhan and Illium story. I’m waiting for it. However, till this time there was no trace that their relationship is anything but friendship. We all assumed that there can be someth

The whole book I thought that I didn't like where this was going and then by the end of it I was like "Yeah, I could get behind this". And when the last page came I was begging the powers that be to please somehow prolong it. I don't know how I'll be able to wait so much time for the next book to come out.

You're killing me, Nalini Singh.

This was too repetitive. Too many explanations about every single character, who they are, what they look like, what happened to all of them in the previous books and so on...

This is book 11. Seriously, who hasn't read all of the books before this one, don't bother, and those who did read the 10 books before this one - you don't need all those reminders about every damn character and about everything that happened to everyone since the series began. I mean really. Just a huge page filler, I thin
