Elena Deveraux, hunter-born and angel-made consort to Archangel
Raphael, is once again thrust into the center by the Cascade. It is doing
something to her, making her weaker, less immortal, and more mortal.
Can she and her lover possibly fight an ARCHANGEL'S PROPHECY, changing it with the
strength of their love? Or will this angel-made woman cease to exist?
On top of the weakness she is feeling in her wings and body, there is a
danger toward her sister Beth and niece Maggie that she must stop.
Harrison Ling, her brother-in-law, is almost killed along with other
vampires that are all strangely linked. Despite the prophecy that has
been whispered in her head and the angel changing Cascade, Elena
finds the strength and determination to end the danger to her family, as
it also leads her to a peril involving her Guild and friends there, when
revenge turns irrational and deadlier. That is when a weakened hunter-
consort must stand and fight.
There are no words in the English dictionary that can truthfully express
the ride that author Nalini Singh sends her faithful readers on with ARCHANGEL'S PROPHECY. OMG,
Wow, Holy... none of those will do at all. As a fan I have read, and own
all the Guild Hunter books
and all of the characters hold a special place for me. Elena and Raphael
are, of course, the mainstay of the series and watching her grow have
been amazing. Watching her make Raphael a little more "human" has
added humor and a lot of interest into the storylines. I also truly
enjoyed seeing the respect and love for Raphael's consort from other
angels, throughout the city and even among the vampires who might
fear the hunter but respect the angel. I'm not sure why, but I find it
riveting to watch Raphael who pulls off the archangel vibe better than
any other in the series but when it comes to the possible loss of "his
Elena," we see him at his weakest yet most determined.
ARCHANGEL'S PROPHECY will
simply have your heart in your throat as every page turns. You will find
a romance that is still strong between the Archangel and his consort,
action, danger, intrigue and moments of humor that only lighten this
intense tome a bit.
If you are a reader who must have things spelled out clearly (as I am) I
must add a warning. I stayed up late to finish ARCHANGEL'S PROPHECY, because I had to know
what happens to Elena. I found it a bit disconcerting, to say the least,
that it ends so abruptly. Don't get me wrong this is an amazing read
that will be added into my read again pile, but I have a lot of questions
in my head that were not in black and white. I look forward to more
books in the Guild Hunter
series to see how things continue!
