Quote of the day: “I’d have been dead a long time ago if not for my friends, one of whom had just jumped off the cliff after me.
I’d have been a lot more appreciative if he hadn’t pushed me first." Cassandra Palmer ― Hunt the Moon by Karen Chance

Angels Blood by Nalini Singh

Angels' Blood (Guild Hunters, #1) Angels' Blood by Nalini Singh

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

USA Today bestselling author Nalini Singh introduces a world of beauty and bloodlust, where angels hold sway over vampires…

Vampire hunter Elena Deveraux knows she's the best—but she doesn't know if she's good enough for this job. Hired by the dangerously beautiful Archangel Raphael, a being so lethal that no mortal wants his attention, only one thing is clear—failure is not an option...even if the task is impossible.

Because this time, it's not a wayward vamp she has to track. It's an archangel gone bad.

The job will put Elena in the midst of a killing spree like no other…and pull her to the razor's edge of passion. Even if the hunt doesn't destroy her, succumbing to Raphael's seductive touch just may. For when archangels play, mortals break…

My thoughts:
Angels Blood is the First novel from 'A Guild Hunter' series by Nalini Singh. It was the first book I've read by Singh and all I can say is "Wow". I've heard good things about this book, but nothing compared to what I read. It was absolutely brilliant! It is for sure one of my new favorites. I'm glad I bought book one and two at the same time, because I cannot wait to see what happens next for Elena and Raphael.

Elena is a born hunter, who was rejected from her family for being different. Some people call her a vampire hunter but her job is more close to that of a Bounty Hunter. She tracks the wanted vampires for the angels and returns them to their owners. She's the best of the best and always get the job done. Which is why Rachel the Archangel of Manhattan, beautiful as he is deadly wanted her help. No mortal would wish to cross Raphael, but Elena doesn't take crap from noone. She's a beautiful, strong woman. A warrior. What she didn't count on, is that Raphael is only attracted to warrior woman.

The relationship between Elena and Raphael is very fresh and exciting. Singh knows how to keep you on your toes and tease you. Every time I thought, "This is it." it turned out I was wayy off. Rachael was a very original and well written character. I loved the idea of the angels and vampires. To be able to see them flying over the city as a natural thing.. that would be amazing.

But not everything about the angels are beautiful. They are truly powerful beings who don't feel humanity as they once did. Humans are merely "toys" for them to use how they wish. Some are more gental and caring than others, but most still believe since our lives are so shortly lived, we are weak and replaceable. And compared to the angels we are, but we can truly do world changing things in our short life span. Elena changes everything.. Let's just hope it's only for the good.

I HIGHLY recommend this novel for those who love urban fantasy. There's amazing action, romance, tension and horror to get you addicted for quite some time. Even while I'm writing this, I'm thinking of book two. I better start it before I go crazy!
