Reviews for Archangel's Consort
I absolutely love the Guild Hunter series by Nalini Singh so when I got this one for Christmas so I was stoked to get it but as usual my other books got in the way and I didn't read this one until the other day.It was so awesome to finally get back into this series as I had finished the preceding book back in October of 2012 and I really missed Elena, Rafael and the other regular characters that appear in these books.
After the way the last book left off I knew something major was going to happen in this one and I was so not disappointed. I've come to really love the way Nalini Singh develops her stories for this series of Urban Fantasy novels. The way she builds such intricate plot lines and brings them to fruition and ties everything together is genius and I never know how things are going to turn out for Elena, and now her mate, the archangel Rafael.
Again in this book she was able to bring her characters to life and combine that with an excellent plot line to bring about such a successful series. The author's consistency also helped aid in the telling of Archangel's Consort. There is a seamless flow from one novel to the next so it feels all the more put together.
This book though was my most favourite of the ones I've read so far. There was a lot more action, political undercurrents and brutality than the other books. I also liked seeing how Elena is progressing as a newly made angel and seeing her relationship with Rafael develop even though I don't really care for him that much. For me, Elena is the star of this series and her smarts, wit, and intelligence makes her one of my favourite female characters because she doesn't take crap from any body not even her mate.
I also enjoyed the way that Nalini Singh is using angels, archangels, and vampires in this series. I especially find the angel lore intriguing and the way she relays the histories, myths and legends in little pieces is really neat because ultimately it gives a better perspective of the book as a whole.
With lots of bloodshed, and a few painful trips down memory lane for both Elena and Rafael we follow them as they deal with the repercussions of a sleeping archangel who just happens to be Rafael's once insane mother slowly waking and reeking havoc across the world as well a Elena deals with the ghost of her own dead mother as well as her prick of a father along with the knowledge that as an angel she will out live all those she holds dear.
Overall, I thought this was a fantastic third book in the Guild Hunter series and I honestly think that it's a prime example of Urban Fantasy at it's best. There was sex, murder, adventure drama and some light hearted moments that helped to bring the story together. The way that the whole story unraveled was great and surprised me quite a bit because I wasn't expecting it to turn out the way it did. I loved seeing the characters change and evolve and can't wait to read the rest of the series.
I highly recommend Nalini Singh's Guild Hunter series to everyone who wants to read an Urban Fantasy book with a kick ass heroine, awesome plot lines, great characters and angels. The action will suck you in and have you reading late into the night. by Kimberly Royunder review

An amazing read
That Nalini Singh is a talented author is not in doubt and this - the third in the Guild Hunter series - demonstrates almost more than the earlier books, that Nalini can weave the most incredible characters, plot and adventure together to ensnare you completely.
Archangel's Consort reaches new heights in terms of emotional intensity. If you thought an archangel couldn't show emotion, Nalini shows you they can.
These books are an awe-inspiring mix of fantasy, adventure, romance, hot sex, angels and humans with a dash of vampires. If you thought a book involving vampires wasn't your thing, I urge you to rethink that decision and give Nalini's books a go.
I can't wait for the next one, Archangel's Blade..! by K B Gordon-Smith
From the start Nalini Singh ensnares you in her sensual web with this book. Her writing lets you see, hear, feel, taste and smell every step taken in this world. From the beautiful blue wings of Illium to the dark seductive smell of Dmitri your senses are awakened.
I loved this book and it was great to see how Elena had evolved into her angel status. Her relationship with Raphael has grown into a true bonded couple and despite the gritty life they lead their love shines through to heal all hurts.
It was full of action, passion and intrigue. I enjoyed every minute. That said though I am ready to move onto other characters now. I feel at the moment we have learned all we can from Elena and Raphael. Adding the other seven's stories to the mix will make richer stories and I look forward to hearing them. Can't wait for September to read Archangel's Blade. by MRS NANCY J MCGREGOR
