Somehow the gods were smiling upon me and gave me the opportunity to read two super amazing ARCs this month. The one I’m talking about today is Archangel’s Blade by Nalini Singh.
The 4th book in the Guild Hunter’s series changes to feature Dmitri, Archangel Raphael’s 2nd-in-command at the angel towers. While the 3 previous books were all about Elena and Raphael, I was not scared to see how this 4th book would turn out because I love the entire world and I’m happy she is continuing it. Elena and Raphael contributed to this book in small parts and I was happy to see them.
Dmitri definitely stole the show. A very dark and dangerous vampire, his history is revealed along with the herioine, Honor who is the perfect counterpart to Dmitri. Even though I have read the previous books multiple times, I completely forgot about how Dmitri chased down Elena in the first book and how very dangerous he is. He was not happy about Raphael and Elena and this book really dives into his history and why that is so. It was a page-turner to see how Raphael met Dmitri and heart-clenching to see why he is the way he is.
The tension was delicious and those small little peeks where we were taken into his history and the way he interacts with Honor was awesome.
This book will give you happy sighs as you read through it and keep you up until 2am. I can’t say anything better about it. I also can’t wait until Bluebell’s book! I am torn between wanting more Elena and Raphael… or wanting to see more Dmitri and Honor… but I think I know where Bluebell is being taken and I can’t wait to read that story too!
This book should be on your auto-buy list, have fun reading it!
