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...

I adored all of the Guildhunter books--I have devoured them time and again, so much I virtually know them all by heart. But this narrator...is simply NOT the voice of Elena, and her attempts to embody Raphael or any of the other Cadre or vampires just falls painfully short, the narrator sounds...,well, she sounds arrogant and stuffy and way too pretentious to be suited to the gritty world that Elena is a part of. Sadly...if she is narrated the rest of the books, I won't be purchasing them. Very disappointed in that regard.
You know i love my books in multiples. Its about getting to know your favorite characters more and more every book. Having an opportunity to find out the story of the secondary characters that always capture us but are not the focus of the story. For all these reasons and so many more ... I love series.
I have just discovered Nalini Singh and her Archangel Series and wow what a find. Add to the wonderful depth of the story and the fantastic characters she creates, the fantastic narration by Justine Eyre and its a flawless combination.
I listened to the first three back to back and cannot wait for the next installment.
Highly recommend this series, writer and narrator!!
This is book 3 in the series, there are seven books in this series So far.. This is a great book. The mixture of Romance, Adventure and mystery is wonderful. With each book Elana's and Raphael's relationship strengthens. She is slowly becoming a Angel, even though she became one at the end of book one. It takes time to learn to be what she became. To learn to fly, how to act in this new Scary Imortal World. Where weakness means death. Nalini Singh handles this transition from human Elana to Angelic Elana beautifully. Not rushing the transition. This is book 3 and she is still developing into a Angel and this transition and awakening happens slowly, which is realistic. This book is full of Angelic Polotics and mystery. If you loved the previous two books in this series you will love this one.
But beware there are seven books in this series yes Audible has all seven out, but living in Australia we cannot get them .(even if we are a member of Audible America we still can't buy them) Americans can we can't. It has to do with the Audio Publisher not gaining rights for Australia and I suspect New Zealand too which is totally silly because the Author is from New Zealand. If you love this series please complain to audible about only having 3 books in a seven book series available to us. I find it very frustrating when I start listening to a series on audible and find out that the rest of the series is not available in my country. I'm usually given the excuse that sometimes when first published the publisher only gains American Rights at first and they get the rights latter on? Well there are seven Audiobooks and you have only 3 available to Australians that's a long wait for Australian Rights.
Please Audible Australia get the rest of this series. Because I have read the whole series so far and it a truly Amazing series. That only gets better wih each book please, please, please get the rest of this wonderful series.
Great narration. I like to list this first as it can make or break a story.
Loved this story. Easy listerning and very entertaining. Will be impatiently waiting for any new books in audio from this author.
I really enjoy it when readers with similar reading interests list their favourite authors and series. It really helps me find new authors too follow. Mine are Charlaine Harris, Jeaniene Frost, Jennifer Estep, Faith Hunter, Molly Harper, Ilona Andrews, Kresley Cole, Deborah Harkness, Nalini Singh and Sherrilyn Kenyon.
Vampire academy. Good follow on with well written story line with well formed characters
Getting the colors of Elena's wings
This third book is a good continuation of the story between Raphael and Elena. The story line is excellent and the performance is excellent. The narrator has done an excellent job in this series and I think I prefer the audio edition immensely. Justine Eyre is excellent and it is because of her that I would prefer the audio edition over the print version anytime.
The plot and narrator add to the story and provide an added dimension that needs to be experienced!
Justine Eyre has added a richness to the characters that I would not have experienced in just reading the book.
I have read a lot of fantasy and paranormal romance series. I have found this series particularly enjoyable.
"Good installment in a solid series"
Book 3 in the Guild Hunter series won't disappoint. The romance between Raphael and Elena continues to develop and there is plenty of action, drama and suspense. A lot of Raphael's history is built upon in this book and Nalini Singh delivers another wonderful effort in a fascinating world. Look forward to the next one in Audible. The narrator is quite good, but I would like a little more of the drama to come through in her performance.
"too much sex"
I got bored of the sex which seemed to make up more of the book than anything else. The first time it showed that they are in love. After that it just filled the gaps. I wish those scenes had been in chapters so I could skip them and get back to the story which was in the end.
"nail biting till the very end"
entertaining from the first page , the story continues to unfold, can't wait for the next one, unlimited adventure,action, plots and subplots and all with true love warts and all. well done
I just get more excited with this series. I am gutted to realise that there are no more books on audio in the uk
"Archangels consort Nalini Singh"
I really enjoyed this audio book the story was as good if not better than the other two books.I have listened to them all.
The narrator was very good she makes the story exciting.
The best parts is all the book I enjoyed the way you get drawn in to The characters because both are new to not only a relationship but Elena is a new made Angel then they have to fight for their lives as well.
Rafael the arch angel is just delicious and the way he treats Elena is wonderful you gave to listen to this book ad all of the the others as they follow on and are brilliant
"Guild Hunters Book 3"
I have all the series in e -Book and three in audible.
Loved them all.
when are we going to get more in audible in English-speaking.
