Enter New York Times bestselling author Nalini Singh’s breathtakingly passionate Guild Hunter world with the story of a woman who isn’t a vampire or an angel…or human…

Once a broken girl known as Sorrow, Holly Chang now prowls the shadowy gray underground of the city for the angels. But it’s not her winged allies who make her a wanted woman—it’s the unknown power coursing through her veins. Brutalized by an insane archangel, she was left with the bloodlust of a vampire, the ability to mesmerize her prey, and a poisonous bite.

Now, someone has put a bounty on her head…

Venom is one of the Seven, Archangel Raphael’s private guard, and he’s as infuriating as he is seductive. A centuries-old vampire, his fangs dispense a poison deadlier than Holly’s. But even if Venom can protect Holly from those hunting her, he might not be able to save himself—because the strange, violent power inside Holly is awakening…

No one is safe.

 

I have been in love with this series and I just can’t seem to stop listening to these books and I have to say that our delightful narrator…Justine Eyre is one of my favorites when listening to an audiobook. And she really has made this world come alive especially as we delve into this world of archangels, vampires, dangers and the battle of good vs evil. We see the intricate layers as we pick up each book and we see this in Archangel’s Viper. Now I would like to mention that this is not my favorite book of the series and maybe I wasn’t in the mood for the level of angst that comes into play here but I did enjoy this story quite a bit and the unexpected twists that comes your way in the story.

Archangel’s Viper is a story that brings together two people that have a love/hate relationship. The heroine had some issues and is trying to become stronger and more capable but she did suffer abuse from a archangel in the past and is now a vampire and Viper is quite older than she is. But they are forced to work together when someone had put a hit on her and now they team up together and soon sparks and passions fly between them. In this book we see how much they truly care and respect for each other once they get past their own judgments and misunderstandings about each other. I did admire the slow build in their relationship and their interaction were so much fun to listen to. Nalini Singh did a great job in writing this love/angsts romance that will give you lots of laughs and fun times. And we see more depths to other characters like Dimitri which was quite fun too.

Return to New York Times bestselling author Nalini Singh’s darkly passionate Guild Hunter world, where human-turned-angel Elena Deveraux, consort to Archangel Raphael, is thrust center stage into an eons-old prophecy....

Midnight and dawn, Elena’s wings are unique among angelkind…and now they’re failing. The first mortal to be turned into an immortal in angelic memory, she’s regressing. Becoming more and more human. Easier to hurt. Easier to kill.

Elena and Raphael must unearth the reason for the regression before it’s too late and Elena falls out of the sky. Yet even as they fight a furious battle for Elena’s very survival, violent forces are gathering in New York and across the world.

In China, the Archangel Favashi is showing the first signs of madness. In New York, a mysterious sinkhole filled with lava swallows a man whole. In Africa, torrential monsoon rains flood rolling deserts. And in Elena’s mind whispers a haunting voice that isn’t her own.

This time, survival may not be possible…not even for the consort of an archangel.

I have to say that Nalini Singh has done a wonderful job in writing this epic love between Raphael and Elena and they have become one of my favorite true pairings of all time. Even though Urban Fantasy isn’t my favorite genre to read in romance, I would like to say that Singh does it exactly how I love it….equally balanced between the world building and the romanc. No one does it better than she can. And this review will be shorter because I really don’t want to reveal too much here. This story was fantastic, not really my favorite of their books together mostly because the latter half of the story I wa really worried in how it would end but thankfully the ending while a bit abrupt was far different than I was expecting this author to write here. In fact the way it developed shocked me and I thought that she couldn’t surprise me more than she already had but this book really takes the cake. I really adored how their relationship becomes even more cemented in this installment. There are other plot lines enter the story too but I did have a blast seeing their book become such an emotional and life altering journey for both of these character and I can’t wait for Archangels War. Should be EPIC

About Nalini Singh

I've been writing as long as I can remember and all of my stories always held a thread of romance (even when I was writing about a prince who could shoot lasers out of his eyes). I love creating unique characters, love giving them happy endings and I even love the voices in my head. There's no other job I would rather be doing. In September 2002, when I got the call that Silhouette Desire wanted to buy my first book, Desert Warrior, it was a dream come true. I hope to continue living the dream until I keel over of old age on my keyboard.

I was born in Fiji and raised in New Zealand. I also spent three years living and working in Japan, during which time I took the chance to travel around Asia. I’m back in New Zealand now, but I’m always plotting new trips. If you’d like to see some of my travel snapshots, have a look at the Travel Diary page (updated every month).

So far, I've worked as a lawyer, a librarian, a candy factory general hand, a bank temp and an English teacher and not necessarily in that order. Some might call that inconsistency but I call it grist for the writer's mill.
