Both books have wonderful, descriptive writing with great characterizations and very original storylines. Honestly, if you've ever imagined or wanted to know what an angel's wings look like (and practically feel like), Nalini Singh has written it in stunning detail. She's also not squeamish about writing blood and guts details, either, so be prepared. White-winged, golden-haloed, good guy angels these are not.
Basically--and I won't give away the plot--the story picks up a year after Angel's Blood. Elena Deveraux, Guild Hunter extraordinaire, has just come out of a year-long coma. She and Archangel Raphael are lovers, and the way they grew into their new relationship, and into a deeper love after their rocky start in Angel's Blood, was really well-written. He's nearly all-powerful and definitely totally dangerous, but Elena can hold her own as well, even if half the time Raphael scares the pants off her. There's more revealed about the Angel hierarchy, and we learn more about the Seven, Raphael's elite guard.
Great read and too good to miss.
This is a book about power. Angels and archangels have a lot of power in this world and many of them use it to wound and destroy others. They also enjoy political games. As they become older they become more inhuman/divorced from their feelings and indulge their own desires at the expense of others. Elena has to get used to this, fight against it and work out her own place in this world.
The author has created a great alternative world and lots of original problems for Elena. Despite who she loves and her new status she is very much her own person and she tries to continue having the same values and ethics - it isn't going to be easy. In this story she becomes involved in helping Raphael to challenge those who use their power unwisely and she is very much his partner despite the disparity in their ages and status.
I very much look forward to following Elena's story further in sequels to this book.
As they begin to learn about each other, an invitation to a ball in Elena's honor is received. The event is to be held in Beijing, by the archangel Zhou Lijuan. To refuse would be a sign of weakness. Elena begins rigorous training to prepare for any surprises that may be awaiting her arrival. Lijuan is evolving and now has the power to bring the dead back from the grave. These pets are called the Reborn and are hardly more than gruesome reanimated corpses.
As Elena prepares, the Refuge is being shaken to its very core. An angel among them has targeted Elena, even going so far as to break the supreme law which forbids the abuse of a child. Elena cannot go anywhere alone and begins to feel as though she is in a silk prison. Raphael and his Seven protect Elena as she uses her hunter-born abilities to track a deadly and cunning foe.
***** FIVE STARS! If I am asked whether the Guild Hunter series is worth reading my answer is always, "Posi-lutely!" This is a stunning world filled with dark and beautiful characters that have already enslaved a huge fan base. Vivid and compelling, this exciting story will quickly grab your imagination and never let so. Imprisonment has never been so seductive! *****

Raphael the Archangel who is also the leader of Vampires is a great character and I like the way his relationship with Ellie, the Guildhunter who hunts Rogue Vampires develops. The whole book is mesmerising and the twists and turns along the way had me glued to this book.
If you like to read about Angels and Vampires with plenty of suspense, surprises and hotness, you would love this book.
