NEVER BEFORE PUBLISHED
New York Times bestselling author Nalini Singh returns to her world of dark passion and immortal power—and to one of the most seductive and impenetrable heroes ever to stalk the Guild Hunter landscape…
“Oh, Naasir. So weird, so bloodthirsty, so unique and wonderful…I have fallen for him…”—Fiction Vixen
Naasir is the most feral of the powerful group of vampires and angels known as the Seven, his loyalty pledged to the Archangel Raphael. When rumors surface of a plot to murder the former Archangel of Persia, now lost in the Sleep of the Ancients, Naasir is dispatched to find him. For only he possesses the tracking skills required—those more common to predatory animals than to man.
Enlisted to accompany Naasir, Andromeda, a young angelic scholar with dangerous secrets is fascinated by his nature—at once playful and brilliant, sensual and brutal. As they race to find the Sleeping archangel before it’s too late, Naasir will force her to question all she knows...and tempt her to walk into the magnificent, feral darkness of his world. But first they must survive an enemy vicious enough to shatter the greatest taboo of the angelic race and plunge the world into a screaming nightmare…
Praise for the Guild Hunter novels
“One of my favorite paranormal worlds.”—Smexy Books
“Amazing in every way!”—Gena Showalter, New York Times bestselling author
Singh breathes new energy into the Guild Hunter series with her splendid eighth installment (after Archangel's Shadows), in which the fascinating vampire Naasir and the scholar angel Andromeda take center stage. The two are dispatched by the Archangel Raphael to find and awaken Alexander, a former archangel who's currently sleeping the Sleep of the Ancients, before Zhou Lijuan, Archangel of China, locates and kills him in her mad quest for global domination. Inventive descriptions highlight Naasir's feline and occasionally feral nature, which intensifies as he hunts for a mate; the hunt might end with charming, brilliant Andromeda, but he's dismayed to learn that she's celibate. Andi's abstinence and obligations to her scheming grandfather, the North African Archangel, create roadblocks for her surprisingly playful romance with Naasir. Singh never loses sight of their relationship's development, even with the suspense engendered by Lijuan's evil, their dangerous mission, and other disruptions to the angelic power structure. The blend of intimate tenderness and globe-spanning action reaches new highs in Singh's most exciting novel yet.
