Today I bring you a review of a book I have read plenty of times before, and because of my friend Sam (literarycritique) finally jumping into this world, I have decided to reread it and review it.
“Angels’ Blood“, written by Nalini Singh, is the first novel in the Guild Hunter Series, a Paranormal Romance published on March 2009.
USA Today bestselling author Nalini Singh introduces a world of beauty and bloodlust, where angels hold sway over vampires…
Vampire hunter Elena Deveraux knows she’s the best—but she doesn’t know if she’s good enough for this job. Hired by the dangerously beautiful Archangel Raphael, a being so lethal that no mortal wants his attention, only one thing is clear—failure is not an option…even if the task is impossible.
Because this time, it’s not a wayward vamp she has to track. It’s an archangel gone bad.
The job will put Elena in the midst of a killing spree like no other…and pull her to the razor’s edge of passion. Even if the hunt doesn’t destroy her, succumbing to Raphael’s seductive touch just may. For when archangels play, mortals break…
About the Author
This novel was my introduction to Nalini Singh’s works, and it came at a time I truly needed a good story that not only made me dream but also regain my strength back. I fell in love so much with this story that I have reread it plenty of times.
As we follow Elena in this exciting and dangerous hunt, along side with Raphael, we get to learn more about Angels (and Archangels), vampires and the Guild. A brilliant start of a series that grabbed our attentions and make us wish for more.
With so many amazing characters we know this could only be the beginning for some of them, because it is true that the ending made us wonder, but the amount of unanswered questions about the vampires and angels that Elena meets, the fantastic and loyal Seven… That was something that always got me excited.
Elena has the most badass job possible. It wasn’t a choice, it was meant to be, since her natural abilities gave her no other option but to be a hunter. That fact creates a tense dynamic with her father as well.
All the characters were well constructed and felt real, as if they could truly exist in our reality. The interactions developed the story, giving us an understanding about the characters and the world building and society’s rules. The story was focus on the people that are living those even, as much as the danger and problems that are happening.
Overall, this is an amazing start of a series, ending with such an amazing opening that make us curious about the next book and how the characters are going to deal with all the aftermath of the events that lead to that point.
If you don’t know Nalini Singh’s Guild Hunter series, I definitely recommend it. It’s a whole new take on the vampire origin story and… it has Angels!
