This series hasn't particularly captured me by this point, but my library has the whole series on audiobook, and the narrator is Justine Eyre, who I especially like, and they're just kind of easy to listen to. And I still might get more into them as they go, so I plan to continue. ( )

The Guild Hunter series has a really interesting story arc to it. I find all of the character's to be very intriguing even the ones that I hate. Nalini Singh can always be trusted to write a series that has engaging characters and a full and fascinating story. ( )

This was another great entry into the Archangel series. The romance was strong as Elena and Raphael are learning to forge a relationship that will last for a vast period of time. Given that they are both very strong people, the relationship includes quite a number of battles. He wants to protect her; she was to be seen as an independent equal.

Trouble is brewing too. Vampires are doing unexpected things. Lijuan is still making trouble. Other cadre members are behaving in uncharacteristic ways. Even the weather is becoming violent and unpredictable. The signs are that Raphael's mother might be awakening. The main question is whether or not her long sleep has restored her sanity. Raphael has grown stronger in the almost 1000 years that she has been asleep. But is he strong enough to kill his mother and, even if he is, can he?

This conflict is paralleled by Elena's own family issues. Her mother committed suicide after Elena's older sisters were brutalized and murdered by a monster. Elena father has disinherited her. There only contact is when he decides to try to hurt her again. But Elena finds out that one of her young half-sisters is also a hunter. She needs to deal with her father to do what is best for her young sister.

This was a taut, emotional story. It was fascinating watching the relationship between Elena and Raphael grow and strengthen. This was a very good paranormal romance. I recommend it but also recommend that readers begin with the first book in the series rather than this one. Readers need the back-story to fully appreciate this episode. ( )

Audio Review: When I read Archangel's Consort it was just ok, but the audiobook brought so much more out and I liked the audio more then the book.
Audio: 4 Stars.


~ 3 Archangel’s Consort Stars ~

Archangel’s Consort is book three in the Guild Hunter series by Nalini Singh.

Archangel’s Consort was not as engaging as the previous two. It felt a little slow, not as action packed, and the build up for the ending turned out to be rather disappointing. Their where also a little to many sex scenes which lead to some boredom, not because they weren’t hot or written well, they where; just that their was too many of them.

As for the Ancient who is awakening. I was expecting a little more on this front. We get a lot of build up along the way and a confrontation at the end, but it was acutely rather small and anticlimactic.

I do like how the relationship between Elena and Raphael is developing. It’s not an easy perfect relationship, they argue and have disagreements, but they always find a way to resolve or make a compromise. I like this, how it shows that although they love each other it doesn’t automatically make it perfect and easy.

Elena is also learning to navigate the world of angels and vampires. She is doing her best to get up to speed and become stronger. Raphael’s character is becoming more “mortal” rather then an arrogant archangel. I like how the author is giving us more on both Elena and Raphael showing the changes they are going threw as they evolve/develop.

The world building is spectacular and I am in LOVE with the Seven. We get more of the Seven. They are mysterious, sexy, and lethal. Their are so many questions about them and hopeful we will get their stories one day. The character development is amazing with the district personalities and realistic dialogue. We also explore the immortality, though it’s highly sought after, it’s not always everything.

Archangel’s Consort wasn’t what I have come to expect and love from Singh, but it was still worth reading. This is still one of my favorite series and I can’t wait to pick up the next book.

I mean, I know the point of a lot of urban fantasy is the eroticism, but I would like more world-building and less nipples now. ( )
