Archangel's Kiss (Guild Hunter #2) by Nalini Singh
What is it about:
Vampire hunter Elena Deveraux wakes from a year-long coma to find that she has become an angel-and that her lover, the stunningly dangerous archangel Raphael, likes having her under his control. But almost immediately, Raphael must ready Elena for a flight to Beijing, to attend a ball thrown by the archangel Lijuan. Ancient and without conscience, Lijuan's power lies with the dead. And she has organized the most perfect and most vicious of welcomes for Elena...
What did I think of it:
I really enjoyed this book. It's not as intense as the first book, but it has other qualities that lift it to the same level as it predecessor. In Angel's Blood most of the interactions were between Raphael and Elena, but in Archangel's Kiss there is lots of interaction with other angels and vampires as well. I really liked reading about the other angels, about their society and history. Some characters got more depth and I'm already looking forward to their return in future books. Singh's writing and world building are beautiful and the story itself is full of romance, suspense and cool action. A great read and I will most certainly continue reading this series.
Why should you read it:
It's got angels and vampires!
