    35 StarsBefore I get started I want to say that I love Nalini Singh She is one of my all time favorite authors and the Guild Hunter series is one of my all time favorite series Raphael is my ultimate Hero Seriously there is no one magnetic no one fascinating and no one alpha than Archangel Raphael I could read about him and Elena in perpetuity That said I will say that this installment despite being centered around Raphael and Elena was surprisingly a lot slow moving that I expected This book had a side story feel to it meaning that it had nothing to do with the over arching Cascade story line and there was virtually no forward movement in the lives of any of the characters Instead this story takes place in Lumia a place supposedly free from Cadre control and it centers around some mysteries occurring there as well as some of the mysteries of Elena's past Two years have passed between this book and the last book and I feel like this book's purpose was to show us how Elena has grown in strength how Illium has dealt with the previous power surges and how the Cadre is interacting now that Uram has been gone awhile and Lijuan has seemingly disappeared In essence this book felt like springboard filler that is meant to get us ready for some serious Cascade movement in the next bookI hope Regardless despite this being a little tame then I thought it was going to be I still enjoyed it; because as I said I ADORE Raphael and Elena and reading anything with them as the main focus is going to be enjoyable to me There was also some drama between Illium and Aodhan And if you have read any of my previous reviews on this series you already know that I would KILL for those two to get together despite Singh never having done MM before All that said if you love this series and characters as much as I do and as long as you don't go into this expecting major Cascade events or lots of action I think you will enjoy this book XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXThat moment when someone from Berkley publishing contacts you and says it was an ERROR that you got denied a Netgalley ARCAnd then sends you oneThe amount of happy I am experiencing right now is indescribable XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXWhen you get denied the ARC you've been pining for with all your heartLOLXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXWas kind of hoping this would be Bluebell and Sparkle's bookBut then I remembered I don't care I'll take Elena and Raphael any day

    4 My precious Archangel Stars Things have been uiet for two years both on the Cascade and the Lijuan front amd waiting for something to change has everyone on edge When it does though it isn't in the form Elena expectsThe Cadre has been summoned by the Luminata to visit their compound in Morocco and apparently the invitation isn't optional Accompanying Raphael to the land of her ancestors seems luke a good way to take her mind off things even if it means interracting with the snakes of the cadre But when they arrive there it isn't to the group of wise and pure monklike librarians Elena has been expecting but to an air or violence and darkness Nothing is what it seemsI will not go into a second rant about expectations this week but I will say that NS only marginally managed to deliver on mine this time and they weren't even that highThis book was a filler through and through We get no progress on both the overarching plotlines of the seriesCascade and Lijuan Instead we get some character development and the foundation to build some new stories on That would have been just fine if the book was a little shorter I found it a bit too long when in reality it had little to offer to the series plotThat being said this book had its moments Watching the politics might not be my favourite thing but watching the bonds between Elena and Raphael grow is always a plus And I loved seeing Aodhan grow stronger and forming relationships And of course learning about Elena's family history was a huge bonus I can see NS is building up to something just don't know what yetAnd Raphael I love this guy He is my ultimate book boyfriend I even named my dog after him♥♥♥I need the Aodhan Ilium book to happen I neeeeeeeed itview spoiler12022015So it's gonna be another Raphael and Elena bookI admit to a slight twinge of disappointment I'm sure though that once release date rolls around I'll be all over this IT IS Elena and Raphael after allAodhan Illium?? Pretty please?? I want me some SparkleSorrow Venom will suffice though Or Alexander Caliane?? HmJust give me the freaking book hide spoiler

    While this story added value to the overall series I was expecting something that would move the Cascade plot forward a little than this did Particularly considering the length of the title I love reading about Raphael and Elena because I've followed their progression and evolution as a couple This book offers us insight into Elena's past and her connections to Morocco It also offered us the chance to learn about the mysterious Aodhan Sparkle his past and his friendship with Illium Bluebell I know a lot of folks want those two to get together and it would be uite interesting for it to come to fruition However there's nothing in this story that indicated that was the direction it's headed For now I classify it as a strong bromance The plot was interesting though predictable to some degree after the initial elements were introduced It added some new players into the mix I am definitely curious to see the role these additions will play in the ongoing Cascade I felt a distinct lack of progression when concerning Lijuan and am eager to know what happened to her I am SO ready for the next installment Safety No others for either of our MCs despite the fact that others are openly interested in them Yes to rape and abuse not of our heroinehero ARC received in exchange for an honest reviewThis was me pre releaseIs it November yet? I may or may not be this excited to read Elena and Rafe

    16720 131018 Re read4 stars Contains spoilers from the previous booksI know some of you were looking forward to a new couple but I didn't mind that this was a Raphael and Elena book I was actually excited to go back to their story and catching up a bit with them There's something about their story and how they are together that will always fascinate me That said I was a bit disappointed with this oneTo be honest I could be uite brutal with this review but I find myself unwilling because even if I found about 80% of the book to be fillerin terms of plot from the previous books I still read it and uite avidly too So now I'm in a conundrum about how to review it If I take this book as a standalone in a way within the series it's a fascinating read with new additions in a spectacular setting But if I see this book in terms of plot continuation and a conclusion regarding Lijuan then I'm disappointed and frustrated The plot is central to Elena and the Luminata The Luminata is a mysterious sect within the angel society which we had no idea about until this book They have the duty of calling the Cadre to meet in extreme circumstances Such as the vampires in Lijuan's territory going crazy and succumbing to bloodlust in her absence This book picks up two years after the last book Lijuan is still missing either dead or mostly likely gone to Sleep The Cadre must decide what is to be done to her territory as the threat of bloodlust will spill over their borders uick if they don't do anything about it The Luminata call all of the Archangels to meet in their city Lumia in Morocco to resolve the issue Think of the Luminata as monks in a mountain monastery And like human monasteries they have a wealth of books and art with the self imposed task of preserving it The writing and descriptions of Morocco Lumia and the art were superb and entrancing But at times it felt that all of the setting was filler Just filling up the book with information Some interesting information but information nevertheless There wasn't really any action throughout most of the book And that means sexual too We only got to read about Raphael and Elena doing the rumpy pumpy once in the book Once So my perverted side wanted my action craving side wanted and my pragmatic side saw the twist at the end coming Don't get me wrong it was a joy to read it simply because of the writing but it was also somewhat disappointing I guess I was expecting And I wont even get into how little we saw of my beloved Bluebell ARC kindly provided by Orion Publishing Group via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review

    It was darkBUT I LIKED ITThis was unlike any other book in this series Much happened a lot of action and Elena Raphael growing strong together There wasn't much development in everything in particular but there were important things from past that were reveled and they were really ShockingI liked Aodhan in this and I just can't wait for his own book view spoiler not only just his but his Bluebell's After some hints in this book there is still hope for us that want to see them together not only as friends hide spoiler

    Reviewed by Rabid ReadsMy knee jerk reaction to ARCHANGEL'S HEART is to say it was a roller coaster But that's not right I wasn't up and down and sideways on repeat from start to finish It was that I was way way down struggling up that first incline until somewhere between 25 30% then I hit cruise straight through the next 50 60% then that last 15% was so spectacular It almost made me forget how long it took to settle inAlmostThat extra 10% that kicked the MEH into a full uarter of book though Unfortunately forgetting wasn't in the cardsBut first things first I'm sure a lot of you are concerned about the POV switch back to Elena and Raphael It's hard to muster up the same excitement we had for Janvier and Naasir in the last two installments for our returning alpha couple am I right? Especially when what we really want is Illium and Aohdan's bookThe good news is it's a' comin' At least it has every appearance of coming based on my decidedly biased opinion Regardless of whether it's the next book or three after that the majority of the groundwork laid for future HEAs was in reference to Aodhan We still don't know what happened to him but it's clear he's healing if not healed and the mysterious mystery was brought up half a dozen times at leastThe neutral news is there's no getting to it without Elena and Raphael So suck it up and let let Singh do what she needs to do orbit gum smile Trust me by the time you finish GH #9 you'll be glad you didBut I repeat first things first and in order to get to the super fantastic revelations at the end of this book you have to wade through the swamp1 There's no mystery surrounding who the Bad Guy isLike none “By dint of their spiritual uest the Luminata have no earthly ties and no loyalties beyond that to their uest for luminescence They take no lovers participate in no wars and when they become Luminata they sever all blood ties” “A perfect neutral body” Perfect Elena says scoffs BEWARE anything described as being perfect That's just common senseBUT 2 Our common sense isn't enough to clue us inThe slight redundancy that can be characteristic of Singh is than slight in ARCHANGEL'S HEART We are reminded constantly that something's not uite right “There’s something off about this place” she muttered “Gian’s spookiness aside the sense of peace I expected is missing” And on the very next page The shallow bow from an escort who had not earned that right the fact Gian had taken the names of the Cadre without adding “Archangel” to the front the Luminata who’d watched them from the shadows their faces hidden under the hoods of their robes none of it was as it should be This pattern continued but once the plot picked up the pace it was easier to ignore per usual3 On a similar yet different note basic rituals are given point by point explanations There was no shower but someone had already partially filled the large stone bath with cold water minerals swirled into the clear liuid It was a normal angelic courtesy to ensure guests didn’t have to wait too long for their bath to fill Finding the handle—old but functional—that made the hot water start to gush out from a spout in the wall Raphael turned it on By the time it filled to the top it would be the correct temperature OOThese kinds of things made getting started an uphill climb BUTI want to be clear that I very much enjoyed this book I can't tell you what made it so wonderful and lovely and ALL the good things bc huge enormous spoilers so instead I'm being painfully honest about the less than stellar start That way if you have a similar experience hopefully you'll be encouraged to push through It's so very worth it I promise Highly recommended

    35This book reminds me very much of book #2 Archangel's Kiss You know Rapahel on official Cadre business and Elena his Consort with weaponsLet me give you bare bones Luminata an angelic order with authority to summon Cadre of Ten deemed it was a time for a meeting since Lijuan is missing which leaves her territory ungoverned Meeting takes Raphael and Elena to Marroco a home country of Elena's late mother so Elena decides to use this opportunity to look for information on her ancestors while Cadre is in session Confession time I wasn't particularly thrilled we are getting another book focused on Raphael and Elena Not because I don't like them but rather because I danced this dance with Singh before when it comes to her other series I get one book focused on coupleevent I really want to read about and then three I am not that interested in Illium Aodhan Venom Sorrow I admit I would be excited about any of these books than another ElenaRaphael But considering I was always a fan of bigger arc Nalini is pushing through series which at this point seems to be leading toward Cascade I hoped this book would at least move forward happenings in that department like it did with Archangel's Legion or Naasir's book view spoilerwhich brought one big change to the world Nalini created Alexander's awakening and for me the scene of his rising was the most exciting in the book hide spoiler

    Raphael and Elena are BACK Yes So happy to have finally another story about them as main characters I really missed them and all the secrets and action that always accomplanies them Before I started reading this story I thought it was maybe going to be about the crazy archangel from China but nope not as much as it would be to be honest It was really about the Luminata and man those folks just suck Just another reminder why I don't like the super religious people that much there always seems something fishy about them And I'm always right with my instincts Yes before you butcher me there might be some good folks but I haven't seen them yet so that's why I don't really like them That's all Anyway back to the story I have one huge minus for Nalini what the heck happened to Sparkle and Bluebell We didn't get the final answer So therefore the next book HAS to be about them Just saying 'Cause otherwise what's the point in all that drama and not get closure huh? OoAside from that there is one huuuuge plot twist about Elena's past or should I say her heritage I definitely didn't see that one coming I mean after all this time to finally get a piece of her history back is amazing and I was so happy for her And Raphael where to start he's just amazing and I want my own real Raphael I only wished we'd got to see of him and Elena alone and how their relationship is growing But I guess Nalini can always write books about these two wink wink My only regret is that I've read it so fast and now I have to wait for the next one But I can always read the Psy Changeling stories

    Nov 2016 I just finished reading and I'm already desperate for the next book This was such a good installment ramping up the suspense for another encounter with Lijuan delving a bit deeper into Elena's ancestry showing a bit of Aodhan's personality I have only the most minor of complaintsa I wish we'd gotten to see Illium and Aodhan reunite b I really want of the Legion who were completely absent in this book c This book was a bit 'mystery solving' than the usual 'monster fighting' and I'd have liked a little actiond MOAR SEX PLZI hate waiting so long for the next book but as always it was WORTH ITY'all try not to be assholes between now and the publication of the next book ya hear?Mar 2016 Everyone bitching that this is another Raphael and Elena book you're awful garbage people You want different characters so badly write your own pervy fanfiction Keep saying Oh no I'm so upset I'm so disappointed How could Nalini do this to us? and see how long she keeps writing for obviously unappreciative fans AssholesOct 2015 It seems everyone is hoping for an Illium and Aodhan book which I totally get That would be spectacularly hot However if Illium and Aodhan hook up with other people that means two stories instead of one And I'm all for that Sorry guys I'm too greedy to be Team Illidhan or Aolium whatever
