5.0 out of 5 stars Alpha Angels anyone?....this book sold them to me!
Angel's Blood is the first Nalini Singh book i read and i loved it. It took a little while to get used to her world, with angels being the unknown factor for me as i havent read any angel books. However, they are not the sickly sweet kind, they are strong and can be vicious. The death scenes are kind of gore actually. The romance between the 2 main characters was strong...

3.0 out of 5 stars More focus on the storyline pls!
I picked this book because the storyline had a good twist on the usual supernatural books out there.
The basic plot: vampires are created by angels, who are contracted to work for them. When the vamps go astray, vampire hunters are responsible for returning them to their masters/ hunting them down. The world is divided into regions and the 10 archangels rule...

Loved the surprise ending!
5.0 out of 5 stars Huge fun to read no 2!,
Again - great to read a relationship that slowly matures (main characters) and building new friendships.
I like the fact that the characters that form the core of the story are protective of the innocent and weak.
Such FUN to read.
5.0 out of 5 stars Fab new take on paranormal,
5.0 out of 5 stars Addictive,
This review is from: Angels' Blood: The Guild Hunter Series (Paperback)I had such high hopes for this book having read the reviews and, to be honest, I wasn't expecting it to live up.
How wrong was I.
It didn't just meet my expectations it it smashed them!
The writing is just superb, really, breath taking in places. There is a lightness of touch to the turns of phrase and description. I could be stood in the middle of Manhattan next to Elena looking up at Angel Tower. Yet, at the same time, it feels magical and special. It's so hard to explain other than to say it's brilliant. More than brilliant, it's addictive to the point I have now read this and two other books in the series, back to back in just under a week, and it has not stated my hunger for these books or the authors effortless writing style.
I can not recommend this book strongly enough!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow :),
This review is from: Angels' Blood: The Guild Hunter Series (Paperback)I put off reading this book for ages and now i'm not sure why because i truly loved it.
I'll start with a summarising of the plot just incase your reading this with no idea what it's about.
Elena is a guild hunter liscensed to hunt vampires and return them to their angel masters. On returning one vampire to an angel she is given her next assignment which happens to be for the Archangel Raphael, a dangerous, terrifying and very gorgeous angel.
He needs Elena's abilities to help him track an archangel gone bad, but it becomes clear that things aren't that straight forward and to make things more complicated she finds herself falling for Raphael.
This may sound like your usual romance/fantasy story but you'd be wrong by a long shot. The characters are much more complicated and there are so many barriers between them i started to lose count, not to mention the fact that Raphael is an arrogant twit and Elena is as stubborn as they come, it makes for an interesting story.
As raphael and Elena track the archangel the plot unfolds nicely, with information being revealed at just the right pace to entice the reader to read on but not slow enough to infuriate, and i found all my questions answered by the end (which is rare in most cases!)
The fight scenes were extraordinary and i gasped on several occasions, i could almost see that final battle in front of my eyes it seemed to real, it would make an excellent movie!
The characters themselves simply came alive and shone for me. Elena was fiesty, stubborn and more than a match for Raphaels arrogance and the pair complimented each other perfectly. I also found their softening emotions for each other rather beautiful, and by the scene after the final battle i shed a few tears, it was one of those scenes that just got to me in a rather emotional way.
Other stand out characters for me, were Sara, who i totally loved, her kick-ass loyal friend nature was brilliant and i wish i had a friend that loyal. I also loved illium (i hope i spelt that right!) or 'bluebell' as Elena names him. He was so cute and the bit with the 'fluffy duck' feathers had me laughing :-)
Simply put i can't praise this book enough, it's romantic, riviting, sexy, intelligent and adventurous. Nalinis risk at writing a completely different novel as paid off and i love the world she's created.
I will definately be reading Archangels Kiss!
