The Archangel of New York, a creature so lethal that part of her feared him even now, lifted the hair off her nape, brushed his lips across her skin. “Of course. You are mine.” No hint of humor, nothing but stark possession."

A buddy read with the Wednesday UF Support Group at BB&B!!!
What ever happened to the fluffy, cuddly, benevolent Angels we all grew up believing in? You know, the ones whose pictures your spiritual aunt has all over her house, the ones that come out when a loved one goes away and we need the comfort their image gives us??? The ones that are supposed to be the messengers and enforcers of G-D's will??? I most certainly did not find them in this series of The Guild Hunter, written by ...more
“The longer you live, the more mistakes you make. And the more sorrows you carry.
Nalini Singh (NS) has given us an unusual world with Angels, Vampires and maybe some new big bad coming our way. It is interesting and unusual. Most of this story I like Elena has her new life as an Angel and the Consort to an Archangle but there is so much to learn. One does not simple get wings and learn to fly in a day.

Elena is a little more timid that she was in the last book but I appreciate ...more

Hey! Be nice!
Just LISTEN for a second! Look, I’m not happy about this rating either okay?
I wanted to love this book. I really did. Hell, after reading the first one in the series I even expected to love this book. Obviously I didn’t get my way. What the hell happened? Where the hell did Elena go?

I still love this book and the whole series. I don't know how Nalini Singh does it but she always sucks me into this amazing world, where angels fight for a life of (mostly) peace and amazing adventures. I love Raphael and Elena, they are one of my all time fav characters and couples. They simply know how to capture my attention with how the balance out their relationship and how they work together as a team. Also the second ...more
Elena wakes up from a coma and is thrust into a role she is unprepared for, that of being an angel. As if being involved with the archangel of NY does not come with enough problems, she has to now cope with being part of an entirely different race. Being an angel also comes with a sharp learning curve. Learning to fly. Fighting with wings. Angel history. Socia ...more

I think I liked this book better because Elena is more confident in herself and her relationship with Raphael. Sure, she's not sure what kind of relationship they have exactly, but just being in a relationship with Raphael seems to bolster her. She finally has someone not a friend who wants her and is there for her. Ever since the tragedy happened with her family, it seems like she's been adrift and has only ...more
I still like it. It's not as good as the first book, not even close, but still... It's good. Good enough that I know that I'll do another re-read in the future... :P
First time round I gave it 4 Stars now it is worth 5 Stars.
5 “We die...... We die together. That's the deal.” Stars.
This book picks up shortly after the battle between Raphael and Uram. Where nearly both died but where Raphael used a loophole making Elena the first made angel in history. An angel with a mortal heart.
Elena spent the last year in a coma and has to adjust to her new life. A life where her friends and family will die as she is no longer mortal. Elena is at the Refuge to get used ...more
I loved the story's honesty. Yes, Elena and Raphael bring the heat but when things cool down, ...more

Favorite quote(among favorite quotes):
"I'll never leave you, Elena." A glimpse of the archangel he was, used to power, to control. "And I'll never let you go."
Other women might've rebelled against such a claim, but Elena had never belonged to anyone. Now she did, and the knowl ...more

I invite you to the Forbidden City, Raphael. Come, let us welcome this human you have embraced. Let us see the beauty of this connection between immortal and what was once mortal. I find myself fascinated for the first time in millennia.

Secondly, I FOUND OUT HOW ANGELS WEAR THEIR SHIRTS! As you know from my last review this concept is really important to me and now that I've figured it out I need not read another word. Just kidding, this world is addicting.

Nalini, I think we have a problem and we will always have it. As much as I am fascinated by your worlds and the plot lines, I just can't stand the writing, or at least big chunks of it. Sigh. And I'm pretty sure this dislike is not what's wrong with me.
How is it possible that there are so many good things in here and yet I ended the book feeling so unsatisfied? It is such a shizo feeling, being totally driven to finish a book while finding it lacking on so many levels at the same time.

I loved to read about Angels again, there is something that I found in them so interesting that makes me wanna read more and more. I love the concept that NS developed about them, so different from everything I have read. I swear that I never thought that reading about angels would ...more
And totally loved it. Nalini Singh's writing sucked me in from the first page. Raphael is sort of an uber-Alpha character which took some getting used to in the first book. There were parts of the first book where I honestly didn't want the pair getting together. But he grew on me and by the end of that first book I was hooked. There's still action in this book, b ...more
