I'm going in!!

Any book in this series is highly anticipated but I never thought we would ever get a story about these characters and especially as a couple 💕

I'm so excited!!!!


It was so easy for me to fall in love with Titus and The Hummingbird. They are probably one of my most favorite couples in this world. I’m incredibly happy that the author decided to write a story about them.

Titus is such a big and endearing character, with his booming voice and hearty laughter. I love his no-nonsen

Don't kill me but in previous books when Titus would appear my mind would insert this picture of him:




And for those that don't know who that is, it's Brian Blessed in cult favourite Flash Gordon, playing Prince Vultan. The booming voice and gold chestplate just cemented the image in my head and I had a hard time getting it out in this book. Once I manage to supplant it, it was easier for me to picture Titus and Sharine together.

I absolutely loved them as a couple! Titus the loud

“It is possible,” she said thoughtfully, tapping a finger on her lower lip. “But I find that I don’t give a shit.”

Oh, Nalini threw a curve at us with this surprising pairing of Titus and Hummingbird. Who expected that? I certainly didn't, but here is the thing: Nalini's books just make me feel better and make me smile, and this year I appreciate it more than ever. Plus, there is chapter

I liked it, but didn't love it. I felt kind of bored most of the time. It had all the right ingredients, but didn't deliver.

Sometimes things just don't come together as planned.

The main problem with this one was that the heroine has been in previous books as someone who is ancient and crazy. Not fun crazy, just a sad, pathetic kind of broken crazy. The author decided to give her an image makeover, but I still saw her as a sad old lady. And, like most people, I am really not feeling it when gran

AUTHOR: Nalini Singh
SERIES: Guild Hunter #13
RELEASE DATE: November 24, 2020
RATING: 4 Stars


You know who's dependable? Nalini Singh, that's who. Not gonna lie, I was a little worried about The Hummingbird being the heroine of a book in this series. Her being so broken and just, I don't know, retreating from her own life and living in her own small world made me a little nervous. Yes, we saw major improvement in ARCHANGE

Truly exceptional! I always grab a book thinking I'm going to get "an enjoyable read." Something to pass the time or to escape in for a while but Nalini Singh crafts such beautiful stories that when you finally reach the end you realize something profound.
What I absolutely loved about Archangel's Sun was that she gave us a woman who's been shattered and who was slowly putting the pieces of herself back together and then she gave that woman a love story she deserved. But better yet, Our heroine,

Nalini Singh made my heart so happy with this book. The romance is slow and sweet, which is the perfect pace for Titus and Sharine. I always love returning to this world, and it's a nice change of pace when we get a romance besides Elena and Raphael's (even though I do love them). It's the first time we get a story about another Archangel, the Archangel of Africa, who is dealing with the aftermath of war and destruction from ARCHANGEL'S WAR. The romance is a bit of an opposites-attract kind, wit ...more

I honestly didn't think Nalini could ever top her other books, but I was wrong. Archangel's Sun is a poignant, romantic, and stunning entry in the Guild Hunter's series. Shirene now tops my list of favorite heroines of all time while Titus will forever hold a place in my heart.
Archangel's Sun begins a new foray into the GH world after a devastating war and the glimpses of how this new world will shake out is thrilling and mesmerizing.

Archangel’s Prophecy steps away from Raphael and Elena as the center and instead focuses on Titus, and Lady Sharine, aka The Hummingbird.

Titus, Archangel of the African Territory, is knee deep in dealing with the havoc created by Lijuan and Charisemnon in their attempt at world domination, and to aid in this Raphael sends The Hummingbird to help. At first Titus is put out because he doesn’t see how The Hummingbird will be any great help. Sure, she’s a renowned artist, her works a thing

APR 7TH 2020: No cover yet, but I just read the blurb for this in NS's latest newsletter...

I know I asked for a novella about what "Titus and his fine ass gets up to" in my review of Archangel's War. And I am beyond stoked both he and his fine ass are getting a full book.
This is NOT the love interest I would have imagined for him in a THOUSAND years! I mean, what the actual WHAT Nalini?

P.s. Excuse the screaming. As you noticed, I have feelings about this.

Nalini Singh will always deliver and it's apparent in her latest Guild Hunter book, Archangel's Sun. Deal with aftermath of the battle against Lijuan and Charisemnon from Archangel's War, the world will never be the same. Eerily, this book have some parallel connection with real life condition, especially now that we fight the COVID-19. Of course the reborn problem in Archangel's Sun is a much older cause (from Archangel's Kiss to be in fact), but the way their infection spread, not onl

Archangel’s Sun is the 13th book in the Guild Hunter series, a series that jumps between a few different couples and a conflict between Angels.  The last two books focused on Archangel Raphael and his consort Elena in their war against devastating forces who wanted to perpetrate horrible crimes.  Now it is the afterm

This book was just fine, having all the elements of a PNR and NS signature writing all over it. It was smooth and the story actually interesting. So if there was no romance at all in it, it would still remain something of the book. Gladly it had a romantic relationship and I liked both Sharine and Titus.

The coming part is a Spoiler and speculation:

Although I like all the books in the series, I’m anxiously waiting for Illum’s AND Aodhan’s book! (view spoiler)

3.5 Stars. The second half was better and carried the book. I wouldn't exactly call this a filler book, as the overall arc of the current storyline moved somewhat forward; but it definitely wasn't as deep as the last few books. First and foremost this was a romance. A good one, mind you, but different in tone from most of the previous books in this series. It caught me a little off guard, because it was more like what you'd find in her Psy/Changeling series.

Oh my goodness, the pairing I never knew I wanted!

The hardest reviews to write are books that one liked but didn't love.

As always, I was so happy to return to Nalini's Guild Hunter world. I've been reading these book for so long that they've become a serious comfort place. That being said, Archangel's Sun didn't wow me. While I enjoyed Titus and Sharine, especially their bickering, and learning about such a famous angel I didn't really get into this book until about 50%, and even then I wasn't captivated or loving it until about the last 40-30

Still hungover!! Though in my defense it happens with all the books of this author.

Wow...what a pairing and above all we could see and understand the characters from a different angle. I loved the brash, in your face, honorable and strong Archangel Titus. Especially his creative way of cursing the now dead and very deserving Archangel Charisemnon. Infact he is obsessed with both the dead archangel and the heroine hummingbird😄.

And what a character she was! I loved how she rose like a Phoenix for
While nobody will ever come close to Raphael and Elena *though there is a potential pairing I'm waiting for 👀*, I have loved every single couple in this series. Titus and Sharine were no exception! ❤

For all the readers who have been yearning for Illium's book, the story of his mother, the Hummingbird, and the archangel Titus is a bit of a surprise. It ends up being a very nice surprise, however. We know so little of either character that understanding her, her past and her motives, may be tantamount to understanding her son.

The focus of the story deals with the after-effects of the horrific angelic war that destroyed so much of the world. Therefore much of the story revolves around t

Nalini Singh's books are an auto-buy for me.
When she announced her new book about Titus and the Hummingbird, I admit I hesitated. I never gave them any real thought. Titus was this huge, boisterous Archangel. Yeah, ok... And the Hummingbird, the reclusive, broken artist, mother to our beloved Ilium, well.... you get my meaning. I didn't even remember that her name was Sharine. When first-mentioned in the book, I was like.. "Huh? Sharine, who?"
I couldn't see the story behind them

Archangel Titus and the Hummingbird? I can safely say that was a combination I wasn't expecting as they - up until now - have been minor characters in the Guild Hunter universe.

But it worked out so well. Titus and his lady Hummingbird are now my favorite couple - aside from Elena and Raphael of course.

I was hoping we would be done with the reborn when archangel Lijuan died but sadly that wasn’t to be. Good thing the couple made this book worthwhile. I fell hard for Titus when he danced his way
Thanks to Netgalley and Berkley for providing me with an advanced copy in exchange for an honest review.

Seriously, Nalini, when are we getting Illium and Aodhan? ARE we getting Illium and Aodhan? The suspense is killing me. Now we're getting Illium's MOM before we get Illium??? *sigh*

Bitterness in regards to whom the book is about aside, this was another good entry into the series. I've liked Titus in the other books, so I was interested in where his story would go. I also adore Sharine/The Humm
