A vampire has attacked a girls’ school—the assault one of sheer, vicious madness—and it is only the first act. Rampant bloodlust takes vampire after vampire, threatening to make the streets run with blood. Then ...more
RE-READ in order to read Archangel's Propechy and Archangel's War.
Okay, I'm still on my Guild Hunter marathon, and boy, the week turn out as a blast for me even though I can't read this book in one sitting since I must go to work. I'm so tempted to take a paid leave just so I can devour all the series, but eh, girl gotta do work if she want to buy her book wishlist :P
Archangel's Consort happen directly after the event in Archangel's Kiss and still my favorite book to date, but this ...more
1. They are seven of the hottest vamps and angels out there! Singh answered my call to heaven for a book about angels and vampires. Sexy angels + Sexy vampires = enflamed panties. Genius!
2. They like to trash talk like this:
“Sure you can handle me, pretty, pretty Bluebell?”
“Did I ever tell you about my snakeskin boots?”
“I do think I need some new feathers for my pillow.”
3. They dress like GQ models in black-on-black suits. Venom, you smexy beast!
4. Even ...more

A Buddy Read with my Wednesday Warrior lovers at BB&B! Make the warriors angels, and we go nuts!
Raphael, the Archangel of New York and his newly made consort, the angel in training and hunter extraordinaire Elena, are still trying to figure out how a relationship of a very human and recently mortal hunter and a very powerful, over 1000 years old Archangel, son of two of the most powerful ancient Archangels and member of the Cadre, could possibly work and be fair and satisfying for ...more
I'm pretty behind on reviews so this one will be shorter.
The series is picking up for me now in this third book. There is an old power rising and it is affecting the Angels in ways they didn't predict. Elena must be there for Raphael to help him through some of his more human feelings as the power rises and he has to decide whether to kill it or wait and see if the long sleeping Angel well be sane when it wakes.
I really liked the premise ...more
05/10/2016 Buddy read with my amazing friends over at BB&B.
A consort was more than a lover, more than a wife. She was ... someone with whom an archangel could discuss the darkest of secrets, someone he could trust to speak only the truth, even if it wasn’t something he wanted to hear.
Elena Deveraux has barely returned to New York after the devastating events of Beijing, before her skills as a vampire hunter is needed. A vampire attacks a girls’ school, the very school where her...more
He would not hurt her, this hunter with a mortal heart who held his own in her hands.
Nalini Singh knows how to write relationships. It is always beautiful the way she captures the magical feelings of falling in love. She has a way of pulling you in and making you feel all of those wonderful moments. I noticed it in the psy-changling series, and in this one. Along with writing the feelings of new ...more
This book takes us back to New York and all the family and friends that Elena hasn’t seen since being Made. I’ve been eager to see the reaction to Elena’s wings since the end of the first book, ...more
I couldn’t care less about these crazy archangels who were trying to usurp each other’s powers. So far I would say I enjoy this series just because of Raphael, a super hot archangel hero with a ...more
Still a favorite and an AMAZING read!
I love these characters!!!
Elana and Raphael's relationship is so intense!
Can't wait for the next book in the series, so much can happen with Lijian and Caliane's characters!.... and the hint of Elana and Raphael having a child....(in the future of coarse)... amazing!
Guild Hunter is one of my favorite series' and this book did not disappoint!
i enjoyed this installment! i'm curious to see where things go from here and i think that the plot set up in this book will make for an interesting continuation in the next book.
i will say, there were a couple things i didn't like
- too much sex (i know) between elena and raphael... like y'all have been together since book 1, i really do not care about your love story anymore i'm sorry
- kind of a lackluster ending... same with the second ...more
The numerous sex scenes led to boredom and skimming, not because they weren't hot, they were, there were just too damn many of them. Especially if ...more
I think the overall plot here was a little thin, and I got sick of Elena's family "problem" stuff. The romance stuff was RACY and well done, but most the time I got distracted about where their wings were going during all this...ahem...athletics.
I do enjoy this author;s writing, just thought I could use some more conflict and plot instead of teh sexing. Of course I'll read the next one, haha.
Raphael is still cold and distant but you can see his love for Elena very clearly. He is very protective of her and puts her above all others. She's had fear of him ...more
When I read the 1st book a year ago, I was feeling somewhat lukewarm, and then, by the 2nd book, I started truly enjoying it. This book, however, has me realize how much I appreciate the author’s craft: the world-building, the plot, the characters – I love it.
The plot is more on the slow side, but for once, I am actually totally OK with that. There is a nice gradual build-up to every development in the plot and characters. It is fun ...more
Swathed in the silken shadows of the deepest night, New York was the same . . . and altered beyond compare.
Elena and Raphael are back in New York. Elena is still trying to adjust to her wings to becoming stronger and to dealing with mortality or immortality. But throughout other things are stirring. Weather patterns are changing and a lot of the Cadre are becoming even more unpredictable than before. There is once again no rest for the wicked as there are more murders to solve that leads ...more
I COULD NOT FUCKING FINISH IT.
And I used to love it. I used to love it a lot. People change. Indeed they do.
What made me feel this way? There's no fucking story. It's all about Raphael banging Elena, Elena banging Raphael and so on. I also have a big problem with Raphael's caveman attitude. Nope, cannot stand it.
So that's it for me. I'm dropping the series. ...more
2nd Read - September 2016
It is time for Vampire Hunter Elena to return to New York and let the world see the changes she has gone through but as nothing ever goes smoothly for the couple they soon find themselves caught up in the hunt of their lives. As more and more vampires are taken over by bloodlust they quickly realise that all is not what it seems, a powerful enemy is rising, a face from Raphael's past that he hoped never to see again and one who is ...more
Oct. 10, 2016: 4 stars
I think the reason I like these so much better the second time around is because I’m not reading them back to back. Elena’s flashbacks aren’t as bothersome when there is some time between books. I had been really irritated with them the first time because they were repetitive with so little new info learned from them.
The plot was weak. Elena and Raphael were dealing with personal issues and some of the weird stuff that was going on, but for most of the ...more
Swathed in the silken shadows of deepest night, New York was the same . . . and altered beyond compare. Once Elena had watched angels take flight from the light-filled column of the Tower as she sat in front of the distant window of her cherished apartment. Now, she was one of those angels, perched high atop a balcony that had no railing, nothing to prevent a deadly fall.
Except of course, she would no longer fall.
Her wings were stronger now. She ...more
Well, um, er, okay . . . how about this?
BIASED RATING: 5 STARS!!
UNBIASED RATING: 3.5 STARS!
Phew, my conscience is clear now. :-) And I can get back to my gushy, fan-girling, completely partial review . . .
This [...] was part of whatever it was that tied them to one another . . . that tart, twisting emotion that ripped away old scars and created new vulnerabilities in a whip of fire across the soul.~SIGH~ This series is so very swoon-worthy. Nalini Singh has this amazing ability to ...more
Once again I have fallen hard for Elena and Raphael. They are quickly becoming one of my all time favorite couples. Their push and pull; give and get is my kind of swooney. These two hold their own with each other. There is certainly physical power differences, but brute strength is not everything. True love certainly evens the field. That goes both ways...
However, I feel like the ending was quite anticlimactic compared to all the action that built up throughout. I was ...more
Still good. Both book #2 and #3 doesn't beat book #1 though. Not even close. I do not know why, but I find this book (and book two) a bit boring at times, or more correctly heavy. I mean, I love everything; the world, the characters, the plot, but still....there's something missing that should make my heart beat fast in excitement...

That made her pause. "Husband" was too human, "partner" factually wrong for a being as powerful as an archangel, "mate"...perhaps. But none of it was quite right. "Mine," she said at last.
He blinked and when he raised his lashes again, the blue was liquid fire. Yes, that will do. "But for public consumption, you are my consort."
"Consort," she murmured, tasting the word, feeling it's shape. "Yes, that fits.”
