Archangel's Consort is rich, sexy and full of antagonizing conflict. This is a brilliant new addition to the Guild Hunter series and veteran Nalini Singh fans are going to be tickled when reading this story. If you're looking for a new addiction- go no further. You're going to be hooked on Raphael, Illium and Dimitri.
Raphael's insane, ancient mother is rising and wishes to claim her archangel son that she left broken and alone ages ago. She's causing natural disasters and sending vampires into a violent rage on her way back to immortal consciousness- and only one thing stands between her and Raphael.... Elena Deveraux. Elena and Raphael's love is evolving and we get to spend much more time with it in this novel. It is magnificent watching as their raw and passionate relationship deepens.
I was so engrossed in this book. The plot was incredibly unique and I loved the prospect of Raphael's mother awakening. After getting to know these characters in the previous two novels, it was fascinating to be divulged in their pasts. The climatic build up was enthralling and made it impossible to put the book down. Though the ending was rather anticlimactic, it did tie up lose ends.
The characters are beautifully written and three dimensional. Elena's new found immortality is a struggle for her, which makes Singh's interpretation of the supernatural much more believable. Raphael's Seven are becoming more vulnerable and gutsy. I can't say my love for Elena and Raphael is growing, but I can't get enough of Illium and Dimitri and love them more with each story. Honestly, the supporting characters in this series really make this series.
If you loved the first two books, you're going to love the this one. If you have not tried this series yet, you MUST pick up Archangel's Blood and Archangel's Kiss so that you can read this one and really enjoy it. This is a beautiful mesh of Paranormal Romance and Urban Fantasy. I highly recommend this series- and if anything, the gorgeous covers are a fantastic addition to any bookshelf. ;)
