Review: Archangel's Kiss by Nalini Singh



Summary from back cover

Vampire hunter Elena Deveraux wakes from a year-long coma to find herself changed—an angel with wings the colors of midnight and dawn—but her fragile body needs time to heal before she can take flight. Her lover, the stunningly dangerous archangel Raphael, is used to being in control—even when it comes to the woman he considers his own. But Elena has never done well with authority…

They’ve barely begun to understand each other when Raphael receives an invitation to a ball from the archangel Lijuan. To refuse would be a sign of fatal weakness, so Raphael must ready Elena for the flight to Beijing—and to the nightmare that awaits them there. Ancient and without conscience, Lijuan holds a power that lies with the dead. And she has organized the most perfect and most vicious of welcomes for Elena…

"They didn't understand that she held his heart, held it so utterly that there was nothing he wouldn't do, no line he wouldn't cross to keep her safe." excerpt from Archangel's Kiss

With a line like that -- who wouldn't -- who couldn't fall in love with the Archangel of New York, Raphael?

Archangel's Kiss is book two of Nalini Singh's Guild Hunter series and it picks up one year later after the end of Angel's Blood. Elena awakens from a year long coman to discover she has wings. Yes - wings. Her lover, Raphael transformed her into an angel. Something that hasn't been done in over half a millenia.

Elena must deal with the gifts and weaknesses of the life of a newly born angel. As a human she understood her limits - as a newborn angel she was weak and vulnerable. In contrast, Raphael's continued exposure to Elena, makes him more an more human - slowly chipping away his "inhuman" nature to uncover feelings that have taken root into his soul.

Singh has done a great job with exposing the vulnerabilities of Elena and Raphael and thier relationship. While you don't see much of the Guild in this book - you gain more information about the angels, Raphael's history and how and why he became the stoic member of the Archangels. We're introduced to more members of The Seven which will hopefully lead to more spin-off novels for the series. The vampire Dmitri and Angel Illium would be very well received with their own storylines.

If you're into urban fantasy and looking for something fresh and new - you can't go wrong with a sexy-heartstopping-Archangel from New York!
