CORINA’S REVIEW

 

OMG OMG OMG

Buckle up this book is an emotional rollercoaster ride of epic proportions. I had no idea what to expect. I certainly didn’t expect so many punches to my heart.  The FEELS were unreal. They came non-stop. I honestly was a blubbering emotional basket case at the end.

And the ENDING!!!!!! O M G

I still don’t know what to say, much less write a cohesive review.

I went into this book without reading the blurb. And subsequently I had no idea what was to come. The plot just kept pummeling my heart until I was a blubbering mess. At this point I can admit that reading the blurb would have prepared me somewhat – lol.

So, yes when it’s all said and done, Archangel’s Prophecy is an end and a new beginning for Elena and Raphael – maybe!?

I have the feeling there is so much change coming. The next big Cascade power struggle is near and nobody has an idea what change it will bring. Clearly some change is already coming, since Elena is in some kind of transition – loosing her wings and regressing back to being human. A transformation of some kind. I can see big things coming for her. HUGE changes, that feel like something big and magnificent. Something that will make her equal to Raphael perhaps.

This fact alone had me at the edge of my seat. It’s no surprise that I devoured this book from beginning to end. I especially loved seeing all my favorite characters again. But most of all I loved that Elena’s circle of friends and family is getting bigger and bigger with each book.

She is a true beacon of joy and life for all of them.

As always reading an Archangel book is a pleasure and privilege. This series is one of my most favorite UF worlds, and I’m looking forward to it each year. Nalini Singh is a true master storyteller. Her incredibly well plotted arcs keep me on the edge of my seat, which I literally was while reading Archangel’s Prophecy.

As before, the author has an amazing way of reminding the reader of facts, past events and developments that after a year might have been forgotten. Her way of explaining these facts never feels repetitive. It’s expertly weaved into the story in a fresh and interesting way.

If you love this series you’ll enjoy book 11. If you are new to this author I can only recommend to you to pick up book Angels’ Blood. You won’t regret it. A vampire hunter falling in love with an Archangel, who later on is also turned into an angel and now is loosing her wings. Come on, it doesn’t get any more fascinatinat than this.

EXCERPT

Illium turned in a direction that would take them to the Catskills if they kept on going.

Sweeping closer to him, she said, “You just want to fly?”

Hair rippling in the quiet but cutting wind, he twisted down in a complicated fall before flying back up to her side. She laughed at his showing off. That was Illium. An angel of violent power who had a heart that might almost be mortal. And, these days, she could appreciate his tricks again. Not a single angel in the city had been ready to witness his acrobatics in the immediate aftermath of the day he’d crashed out of the sky.

Elena would never forget her screaming fear.

To his credit, Illium had flown with absolute discretion for months, letting the memory dull and fade.

When he returned to her side today, his face was flushed, the gold of his eyes rich. “Sky’s too beautiful to shut ourselves away in a club.”

“Just don’t forget I’m not as fast as you. Also, I’m currently lame.”

Illium lifted one cupped hand close to his shoulder, the other moving back and forth . . . and she realized he was playing a tiny violin in response to her morose tone.

“Crossbow, Bluebell.” Narrowed eyes. “Remember the crossbow.”

He dived, his wicked laughter floating up on the night air. Lips twitching, Elena continued to glide, letting the air currents sweep her along with cold but gentle hands. Illium, meanwhile, flew circles around her—but he never went far, always close enough to halt her descent should she tumble.

She landed a number of times to rest her wings, once in an isolated park whispering and dark. A luminescent insect appeared then disappeared from sight before she could truly see it, an earthbound star. The ghostly owl sitting on a tree branch watched her with eyes even more luminous.

A sigh deep in her mind, an old, old presence restless in Sleep.

The hairs rose on her arms.

Then Illium shot them both up into the sky again, and together, they flew far beyond the diamond-bright skyline of the city and over the sleeping homes of ordinary people who lived in a world of vampires and angels, blood and immortality.

Another rest stop for Elena.

Another throb of pain from the cut on her forearm.

Another watchful owl, this one landing on Illium’s shoulder without his knowledge. Ashwini had told her not to be afraid of the owls, so Elena ignored the goose bumps and said, Hello, with her mind. A good night to fly.

A vein began to throb at her temple.

The answer came a long time later, after they were in the air again, the glow of the sinkhole visible from the distance.

It has been an eon since I flew.

BLURB

Midnight and dawn, Elena’s wings are unique among angelkind…and now they’re failing. The first mortal to be turned into an immortal in angelic memory, she’s regressing. Becoming more and more human. Easier to hurt. Easier to kill.

Elena and Raphael must unearth the reason for the regression before it’s too late and Elena falls out of the sky. Yet even as they fight a furious battle for Elena’s very survival, violent forces are gathering in New York and across the world.

In China, the Archangel Favashi is showing the first signs of madness. lIn New York, a mysterious sinkhole filled with lava swallows a man whole. In Africa, torrential monsoon rains flood rolling deserts. And in Elena’s mind whispers a haunting voice that isn’t her own.

This time, survival may not be possible…not even for the consort of an archangel.

GOODREADS


I’ve been writing as long as I can remember and all of my stories always held a thread of romance (even when I was writing about a prince who could shoot lasers out of his eyes). I love creating unique characters, love giving them happy endings and I even love the voices in my head. There’s no other job I would rather be doing. In September 2002, when I got the call that Silhouette Desire wanted to buy my first book, Desert Warrior, it was a dream come true. I hope to continue living the dream until I keel over of old age on my keyboard.

I was born in Fiji and raised in New Zealand. lI also spent three years living and working in Japan, during which time I took the chance to travel around Asia. I’m back in New Zealand now, but I’m always plotting new trips. If you’d like to see some of my travel snapshots, have a look at the Travel Diary page (updated every month).

So far, I’ve worked as a lawyer, a librarian, a candy factory general hand, a bank temp and an English teacher and not necessarily in that order. Some might call that inconsistency but I call it grist for the writer’s mill.
