Angel's Blood

Angels' Blood (Guild Hunter, #1)Angels' Blood by Nalini Singh
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I have never read Nalini Singh before this, but man, I can't wait to continue!

Meet Elena Deveraux, Guild Hunter... that is to say, she hunts vampires as part of a large organization that hunts them called the guild. Elena gets a request to do a hunt for Raphael, the archangel of New York. Elena is scared witless, because archangels aren't exactly known for their kindness.

The hunt isn't for a vampire however, but an archangel who has all but turned into a vampire. Elena's fear is replaced by determination as she strives to find the archangel before he turns New York into a bloodbath... but how does one kill an archangel?

This story was great! The chemistry between Elena and Raphael jumped right off the page, and at points, I was all but screaming at them to just stop fighting it, and go for it! And that is why this book doesn't get five stars. For the majority of the book, really up until the last 50 pages, you have no idea what's going to happen with Elena or Raphael. They fight all the time, and neither really shows their feelings about the other until the very end.

Raphael is a great character. He is broody, and secretive, and everything a classic romance hero needs to be. But he's also a bit... twisted. He doesn't feel things the way humans do, so, he's got a bit of a callousness that you wouldn't expect in a typical hero.

The fact that this book series not only has vampires but also angels is awesome. I totally love the concept, and the series, and I can't wait to get started on book two.
