Warning: Cliffhanger (No! Please! Come back! I promise I’ll be good. Just come back and tell me more! I can’t do this, I can’t wait for another year! I think I might cry.)
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.
“Following her sister’s gaze, Elena saw that Eve was pointing to where Elena’s left wing dragged through the snow. A chill filled Elena’s blood…”
This was so, so lovely to read. Except that ending, which I’m going to pout over for days, maybe weeks. I had such a good time being with Elena and Raphael again. They are always the best part of the Guild Hunter series, and Archangel’s Prophecy doesn’t disappoint with these two. They’re so damn cute together it hurts. We get to see so much where they just get to be together, even if it is during tough times. My cruel, hard heart melted inside.
As one might guess, after a few years break, the Cascade is back. There are signs, portents, and just plain weird things happening. I love the Cascade, because it means everything is changing. The story just gets super interesting. Yet now, there is a new mysterious person that seems to know what is going to happen…and it isn’t pretty.
In the midst of everything, Elena’s dumb vampire brother-in-law nearly got himself killed and Elena is determined to figure out who and why, to protect her sister and niece. Yet this is all backdrop to the tick tick tick of time, the tick tick tick of prophecy. Elena’s body is going through changes, it doesn’t seem to be able to compensate for those changes. Raphael is terrified, Elena is scared. Nalini Singh does an amazing job of counting down to the end with more and more that comes apart at the seams. I was glued because I just had to know what happened.
I have to know what happened.
TELL ME WHAT HAPPENS!
Is it too soon to ask “when book?”. Because tomorrow is good for me. I read real fast.
