PARENTAL ADVISORY: This book contains adult material.About Archangel’s Consort:

Nalini Singh steps back into the shadows of her heartbreakingly original world where angels rule, vampires serve, and the innocent can pay the greatest price of all …Vampire hunter Elena Deveraux and her lover, the lethally beautiful archangel Raphael, have returned home to New York only to face an uncompromising new evil …A vampire has attacked a girls’ school – the assault one of sheer, vicious madness – and it is only the first act. Rampant bloodlust takes vampire after vampire, threatening to make the streets run with blood. Then Raphael himself begins to show signs of an uncontrolled rage, as inexplicable storms darken the city skyline and the earth itself shudders. The omens are suddenly terrifyingly clear. An ancient and malevolent immortal is rising. The violent winds whisper her name: Caliane. She has returned to reclaim her son, Raphael. Only one thing stands in her way: Elena, the consort who must be destroyed …

Review:

I’ve already said most of what I can say about this book with my reviews with the first two books of this series. So what else/more can be said about this book other than that it will feed more of your Guild Hunter series addiction? In this book we see more familial dynamics interaction. The irritating dynamics of Elena’s dysfuntional family plus Raphael’s mother entering the scene. This book is all about family and it was interesting to see how Ms. Singh woved that into the central theme of the book plus all the various sub plots and tie it all up into a nice bow at the end. Masterfully woven tale! Combine that with a compelling story telling quality and you got a very enjoyable reading time! Although this book started off rather slow for me it was worth trudging through the first few chapters for the wonderful read that I got in the end.

 

Empirical Evaluation:
Story telling quality = 5
Character development = 4.5
Story itself = 5
Ending = 4
World building = 4.5
Cover art = [paperback = 4] / [audiobook = 2.5]
Pace = (paperback) 4.5 / (audiobook: 10 hrs and 22 mins listening time)
Plot = 4.5
Narrator = 4
 

Overall Rating: 4.5 out of 5 cherries
