Title: Archangel’s Consort
Author: Nalini Singh
Series: Guild Hunter #3
Genre: Urban Fantasy
Vampire hunter Elena Deveraux and her lover, archangel Raphael, are back in New York and are dealing with natural disasters and vampire attacks. It seems an ancient immortal is rising and it is unclear if they are sane or not.
This was a slower paced story for Elena and Raphael that revolves around family. Elena spends a lot of her time getting back into being a hunter and visiting her friends and sisters. I enjoyed seeing Elena get stronger with her fighting and flying skills. She is also dealing with her nightmares still and her PTSD from those days. Raphael is dealing with his own memories of his mother and his fear that if she awakens he might have to kill her.
I enjoyed this one because we see Elena and Raphael really working and relying on each other as a couple. They are leaning on each other during trying times and when they are overwhelmed with fear and sadness. They finally are starting to feel as an equal couple in the relationship, which was my issue with the previous two stories.
While not as action packed as previous stories, this one was definitely important for the continuation of the story and for Raphael and Elena’s relationship. It will be interesting to see how Caliane’s awakening will impact the overall story.
