5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing March 27 2009
By Wm19
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is the best paranormal romance I've read in the past year. I don't like Nalini Singh's other book series (the psy-changelings), but I was completely blown away by this book.

In this world, there are archangels, angels, vampires, hunters and humans. There are 10 archangels who rule the world and their wings of angels. Angels are immortals. Angels Make vampires from humans, who have to contract to serve for 100 years in return for being Made immortal. When vampires go bad or break contracts, that's when hunters (whether hunter-born or hunter-trained) track them down.

Elena Devereaux is the top guild hunter in North America and her personal history has made her tough as nails while allowing her to remain human. Elena is hunter-born with unique abilities. Raphael is the Archangel of New York and appears to rule North America. Raphael is ruthless and omnipotent in his territory. When Raphael hires Elena to track an archangel gone bad, things get a whole lot interesting. Raphael can mind control Elena, but she'd rather break than bend. Because of her history, she's surprisingly resistant to a lot of his angelic influences.

Paranormal books are very common now. What made this book stand apart was Raphael's otherworldy allure and brutality, the beautiful scenes in the sky, Elena's tough compassion, and the shockingly good ending.

Anyway, can't say more or else I'd be giving away the plot. Amazing story, I'm a Singh fan for life now.

5.0 out of 5 stars I have a problem I can live with :) March 4 2009
By M. B. Alcat TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Nalini Singh is one of my favorite authors. I'm already addicted to her Psy-Changeling series, where she has managed to create a thoroughly original and engaging world, that develops more and more in each book.

When I learnt that she was going to write a new urban fantasy series, I couldn't help but think "Oh, no, Nalini will have less time to write the books I like!". All the same, I'm very curious, so I couldn't help buying and reading "Angels'Blood", the first novel in the Guild Hunter series.

Now, I have a problem: a new addiction that joins my previously existing ones to chocolate and Nalini's Psy-Changeling series. I simply loved "Angels'Blood", its characters, and the new world it introduces. The main character is Elena Deveraux, a plucky guild hunter that tracks down vampires that break their contracts with angels, the immortal beings that create them in exchange for a period of servitude. Elena is the best at her job, and due to that she attracts what might end up being the mortal attention of Raphael, probably the most dangerous and beautiful archangel in existence. Raphael demands Elena to do the unthinkable: track a rogue archangel. Elena cannot say no to that request (or rather order), that will involve working closely with Raphael, and bring unexpected developments.

On the whole, I can say that "Angels' Blood" is the beginning of a series totally different from the Psy-Changeling series, but, strangely enough, just as good. Highly recommended :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Guild Hunter, Book One. Compelling! Jan. 20 2010
By Detra Fitch TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Elena Deveraux is a Guild Hunter. She mainly hunts runaway vampires. Those who sign a contract with an angel to Make them know that their first one hundred years is spent in the angel's servitude. Should a vampire run, he is hunted down and returned to his angel for punishment or death. Elena is the best. She is hunter-born. She did not choose the dangerous career of a hunter, it chose her. Born with an ability to smell and track vampires, Elena became shunned by her family.

The Archangel of New York is the legendary Raphael. He hires Elena to hunt someone for the Cadre of Ten. Anyone Elena dares to tell anything about her assignment would be instantly killed. Elena is to hunt one of the Ten, an archangel who has gone insane. She needs only to locate her target and Raphael will do the terminating. But Elena would have no outside help; she is basically on her own.

The more secrets Elena learns about angels, vampires, and archangels, the more those powerful beings wish her to be permanently silenced once her job is done. And as much as Elena and Raphael clash, they are also attracted to one another.

***** FIVE STARS! An intense story set in a fantastic world where mortals and immortals live among each other. I will never think of vampires or angels the same way again. This compelling tale immediately grabbed me by the throat and refused to let go! *****

5.0 out of 5 stars Angels aren't what they seem! Jan. 21 2010
By Tynga's Reviews TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Before Resuming this book, I'd like to introduce you to the world it takes place in.

The world is lead by a group of Archangels, each ruling their own areas. They are known by everyone, and they are creating vampires, also known figures. Vampires are Angels minions, and after being turned they have to serve for centuries before being free. But sometimes some vampires are rebellious, and that's when Elena Deveraux step into the action.

Elena is a born-hunter. She was born with the ability to smell and track vampires, so Angels and Archangels hires her to recover their wayward vampires and drag em back home. Only this time, Raphael, Archangel of New York, hired her to track another archangel who embraced the dark side. I hope you are ready for action and one epic chase because this is what you'll find in that book.

Think angels are fluffy innocent beings preaching peace and forgiveness? Guess again. Angels are powerful, single-minded and remorseless. They will get rid of anything stepping in there way, and the live of a single human spawn means absolutely nothing.

Elena is a stubborn, big-mouth and reckless woman while Raphael is seductive, powerful, vindicating and control freak archangel. As you can guess, that's one explosive combination - figuratively and literally.

They spend most of the book fighting each other while trying to achieve a common goal, and it's a very interesting relationship. Elena is hunted by nightmares of her past, on the other hand, Raphael's past is so long he isn't sure there's any humanity left within himself.

While most of the book is filled with sexual reference and sexual tension, there's only one real sex scene, and honestly that's the way I like it.
