Archangel's Kiss (Guild Huner #2)by Nalini Singh

Archangel's Kiss (Guild Hunter, #2) Archangel's Kiss by Nalini Singh

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
In the world of Nalini Singh’s Guild Hunter novels, angels and archangels rule the earth, each one holding sway over a certain territory. Between angels and mortals reside the vampires—humans altered by angels to serve them. When vampires go rogue, it’s the job of the Hunters’ Guild to track them down and bring them back to the angels they serve.

Elena Deveraux is a natural-born Hunter, able to detect and track the scents of individual vampires, and she’s one of the best Hunters the Guild has ever had. Unfortunately, this has brought her to the attention of archangel Raphael, who rules over New York and who has a very special, very dangerous job for her. This job will land her smack-dab in the middle of archangel politics, vicious killers the likes of which she’s never seen, and a highly dangerous attraction to the utterly lethal Raphael.

My thoughts:
Archangel's Kiss is the second Novel in the Guild Hunter series by Nalini Singh. This series is gold! I honestly loved this series from Angel's blood page 1.
If you haven't read Angels Blood by Nalini Singh, what are you waiting for?? It's a book you will NOT want to miss. It's one of the best books I've read this year for sure. I'm so glad I picked up this series. Now, you have to!

There may be a few spoilers.. but I'm trying not to give too much away.
If you don't want any spoilers at all, look away until you've read Angel's Blood...

Archangel’s Kiss starts up a little after Angel’s Blood. A full year plus has passed. In Angle's Blood, Elena is a Guild Hunter who tracks and hunts vampires for the Guild. She is sent out and tracks vampires by their unique and individual scent( which isn't very common).
Raphael(the archangel of New York) hired Elena to track an archangel who had gone mad and was killing a number women across the city of New York. Archangel's aren't Elena's strong point. She's used to hunting vampires, but an archangel proves to be a hell of a lot more trouble.
During Elena and Raphel's time together, Raphael and Elena fell in love and when Elena was mortally wounded, Raphael’s body produced ambrosia(which pretty much never happened before) a once in a lifetime event, that turned Elena from human to angel.
In Archangel's Kiss Elena had been in a healing coma and she is newly angelic. We see Elena struggling in her transition from human to angel.
She didn't realize how hard it could be to fly and fit with other angel's personalities.

Elena must learn rather quickly however because Raphael has received an invitation for the two of them to attend a ball in Elena’s honor by Lijuan, the oldest and deadliest of the archangels.
For a ball this is no social event but rather a measure of Raphael’s power and a display of Lijuan’s...

Rumors are that Lijuan is making the dead walk as the living. And not is a way you would want to make public.
Besides Lihuan's deadly undead, there is other problems for the angels...

The Refuge becomes tainted when one of Raphael’s angels is taken and tortured. To do so is forbidden. And even worse happens when an angelic child is kidnapped. Over all the events seem random. Some are pointed towards Elena, but only through the Guild and not as a Angel in general.. There is a big opening left when Raphael killed the mad archangel in Angel’s Blood, and someone is positioning to fill that void. You can try out for a spot, but you don't have to go as far as this participant is willing to go...

Elena and Raphel's relationship is as strong and hot as ever. They are learning to rely on each other and open up to each other. To both of them, this type of relationship is new, but both are determined to make it work.

I'm hooked on this series. It's one you should not. Can not miss.
It's for all you paranormal romance/urban fantasy fans. This is no ordinary fantasy world. Singh is a genius with her imagination. Go out and read it now! :)
