Archangel’s Prophecy by Nalini Singh (book 11 Guild Hunter)
This book has driven the fans wild, absolutely wild. And I’m not going to tell you why. #spoilers
If you want a new series to read, do you want one that’s rock steady and you get what you expect? Or do you want one where the author embraces her vision for the characters and leaves her readers at 2 in the morning throwing the kindle against the wall with tears streaming down their faces and fury in their hearts? I know what I’m choosing. Drive the fans wild I say.
Elena and Raphael are the alpha couple of paranormal romance. Their story is so intricate and absorbing that time after time Ms Singh revisits them. I’m usually a one and done girl, once I’ve had the HEA, I’m moving on. Not with these two, never with Elena and Raphael.
All the Nalini Singh trademarks are in evidence – superb characterisation, outrageous story telling, unparalleled world building, true humour and painful emotion.
After eleven full novels and a whole load of novellas all of which I’ve read several times searching for clues I now have absolutely no idea what will happen next. And it’s killing me. Think on that. How many authors run out of steam about book 7 or 8? With book 11 in her guild hunter series Ms Singh has thrown everything we know up in the air. Perhaps under a bus might say it better. Pure bloody genius.
Given everyone else is ‘telling’ the author what should I happen next, I will too! I need Aodhan to get his book, then conclude Elena and Raphael’s story with Bluebell’s accession. Yes, definitely that. Oh no that means that Titus might not meet Tasha. I need Titus settled. And what about Caliane, perhaps with Alexander? Or Kier? I’ve forgotten new character Andreas needs a story. But will Astaad decide on Mele alone? Eek! Now I’ve started I can’t stop. Like I said superlative characterisation and world building.
