Midnight and dawn, Elena’s wings are unique among angelkind…and now they’re failing. The first mortal to be turned into an immortal in angelic memory, she’

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

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

Hot damn. HOT. DAMN.

Who do I have to sleep with to get the next book in this series, because the cliffhanger in this one? It just may kill me.

But seriously. I started reading Archangel's Prophecy with the firm belief that everything will be OK in the end, I'd get to spend time with one of my favorite couples and I ended up being on an emotional roller coaster that at times had my heart fly out of my chest.

Nothing is right in Elena and Raphael's world. Elena reversing from immortal to mortal is g
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

I hope we get some plot progression but from the blurb is seems we are back to Raphael and Elena facing even more trouble. (view spoiler)

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?

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.

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 now. I'm so excited that I get to go back to book one and enjoy the ride Nalini Singh has created.

What did I love about it so much? I'll start with Raphael. He was perfection to me. I have this

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.

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 con

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
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

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.

Now, Elena and Raphael have had their challenges throughout this series, but in this one destiny and prophecy and the Cascade are all agents them. Elena is losing her immortality, but she will not give up without a fight. I cried, I felt, and I hurt for all involved in this installment. T

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

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.

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

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

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

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

I'm always excited for any new Nalini Singh book, but when I found out the next Guild Hunter novel would be Elena and Raphael again I was beyond thrilled! I cannot get enough of the archangel of NY and his consort.

You really have to read these in order (at least have read the ones that focus on Elena and Raphael) or you will be lost. Singh has created a unique world that will be lost on readers who aren't caught up on the series. Archangel's Prophecy picks up when the cascade is causing havoc a

I'm just apologizing in advance for the vagueness of my review, because I don't want to give any spoilers. And believe me, this book is full of twists and turns and revelations and more questions that it would be easy to let something slip.

This book focuses on Elena and Raphael again, as well as more events that are lending more evidence that a Cascade is imminent. In the midst of more upheaval, Elena's wings are starting to fail her. Raphael and Elena search for the reason and how to prevent i

EDIT: For those who are desperately missing Aodhan in this book - there is a nice little snippet (Elena’s School of Horror) with Elena and Aodhan in this month’s newsletter (7/16). There is a brief touch on his past and emotional state. It takes place just before the events of this book.

3.5 Stars. Basically, there were two main storylines. Elena’s physical weakening and her archangel powers mysteriously diminishing; and a Guild case involving a cloaked man hunting down and savagely killing vampi

Another fabulous, action-packed, sexy installment in the Guild Hunter series! Nalini Singh just never disappoints. And I'm so happy that we got back to Elena & Raphael in Archangel's Prophecy. But... THAT ENDING!!! I need the next book asap.
