From Goodreads: Vampire hunter Elena Deveraux knows she is the best- but she does not know if even she is good enough for this job. Hired by the dangerously beautiful archangel Raphael, a being so lethal that no mortal wants his attention, Elena knows failure is not an optionโ€”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 otherโ€”and pull her to the razor’s edge of passion. Even if the hunt does not destroy her, succumbing to Raphaelโ€™s seductive touch just might. For when archangels play, mortals break

First Thought when Finished: As I said on Twitter “Dang it all to Heck but now I feel the need to read these back to back”.

What I Loved: I am going to say it–I may be in denial (Amanda I may need to change my answer) about not liking Angel based Romance series. I have actually read quite a few in the last year that I really loved and this is no exception. Seriously, I shouldn’t have loved this book–first it is more of a UF than a PNR and it is about Angels. However, I totally loved it despite both of things. I loved that the UF part is more like J. Frost type (a couple together) and the Angel part was just Fan-FREAKING-tastic world building. LOVED LOVED LOVED it!

What I Liked: I am really liking getting to know all the characters (there are a quite a few) in little bits and pieces. Though I already have a slight crush on Jason so I want to know more!

What made me go huh?: Nothing really since I think my one little hangup is dealt with in book 2.

Audio Review: Narrated by Justine Eyre, this wasn’t my favorite audiobook but it wasn’t bad either. It just felt a little rushed at times while she was reading. That is sometimes not the narrator but a time constraint.

Final Thought: I highly recommend this book to anyone who isn’t in denial (and even if you are) about loving Angel based books ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. I just purchased books 1-4 last week! I’m going to use one of my next months credits to snag book 5 that just released this month! I’m so anxious to dive into this series! Finally! Love Audible.com!! ๐Ÿ˜€

  2. Felicia the Geeky Bl

    LOL! I have to say that Angels are my least favorite Paranormal Characters. That being said I guess after this, Terry Garey, and Kristina Douglas I need refine my "I don't like" to "I'm just picky" about them ๐Ÿ™‚

    You hate angel based books? How did I not know this? I love this series!!!On another front….i just wrote the intro to an angel based paranormal book…maybe I should rethink that. hehe! although they are not really angels….they just have wings. ;o) smiles…

  4. Felicia the Geeky Bl

    LOL you are totally funny! I can't believe how many freaking books I bought……grrrrrrrrrrrrr!

  5. Felicia the Geeky Bl

    We are the balance of the universe—you read YA for me and I read adult for you. We can just live vicariously through each other ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. Felicia the Geeky Bl

    I think you will LOVE them ๐Ÿ˜‰ They are a little more down your alley than mine!!!

  7. Felicia the Geeky Bl

    I would have sworn that I don't like Angel stories a year ago but alas I seem to like the ones I like (Terry Garey, Kristina Douglas, and now NS) *sigh*

  8. Felicia the Geeky Bl

    This is the second book I have read by her (I read the first book in the Psy-Changling series). The other book was good but this one was so much better!

  9. Felicia the Geeky Bl

    LOL I loved Rafael too and his band of merry men. However I think I will just say that I am more open to books about Angels now ๐Ÿ™‚

  10. Melissa (Books and T

    I have the first 3 on my tbr waiting for me to read them back to back. Oh yes… can't wait. I'm glad to hear it is more UF. I love UF with a side of PNR. Yes… *rubs hands together* I can't wait to dive in!

  11. Mary

    Angels and vampires just make me roll my eyes these days. However, I do find myself still picking them up and enjoying them. And Nalini Singh is a writer I really enjoy reading. Might have to check this series out!

  12. Jen (In the Closet W

    I've never read anything by NG, but Jenny swears she rocks and apparently you think so as well. I'm still saying it, I'm not a fan of the angels, but maybe NG will change my mind. The characters sound pretty awesome!

  13. Missie, The Unread R

    I already read AB, and I'm still in denial about liking angels, but I will admit to loving Rafael. LOL I'm looking forward to the rest of the series.
