In the wake of a brutal war, the archangel Raphael and his hunter consort, Elena, are dealing with the treacherously shifting tides of archangelic politics and the people of a battered but not broken city. The last thing their city needs is more death, especially a death that bears the eerie signature of an insane enemy archangel who cannot— should not—be walking the streets.
This hunt must be undertaken with stealth and without alerting their people. It must be handled by those who can become shadows themselves…
Ash is a gifted tracker and a woman cursed with the ability to sense the secrets of anyone she touches. But there’s one man she knows all too well without a single instant of skin contact: Janvier, the dangerously sexy Cajun vampire who has fascinated and infuriated her for years. Now, as they track down a merciless killer, their cat-and-mouse game of flirtation and provocation has turned into a profound one of the heart. And this time, it is Ash’s secret, dark and terrible, that threatens to destroy them both.
Once again Nalini Singh proves with her newest release, Archangel Shadow why she’s my favorite paranormal romance/urban fantasy author.
I love this book. It has so much to offer its readers in terms of an emotional and engaging plot, a powerful and poignant love story, witty and intelligent dialogue, and characters so richly developed and multilayered they breathe life into each and every page. I fell in love with this story, its hero and heroine, and its ability to make me feel and laugh.
From start to finish, Archangel Shadow is a delightfully fulfilling story – one I highly recommend.
