Trying to discover the identity of a murder victim brings together the vampire Dmitri and a hunter for the Guild, Honor. And as the gruesome murders continue, a lethal sensuality explodes between them.
In the intensely dark, violent, and romantic fourth Guild Hunter novel (after Archangel's Consort), Singh focuses on the 1,000-year-old vampire Dmitri, lieutenant to the archangel Raphael, and Guild Hunter Honor, still recovering after a rogue vampire kidnapped and tortured her for two months. Assigned by the Guild to work with Dmitri toward solving the strange murder of a young vampire, Honor must confront the conflicting emotions he inspires, which intensify when the investigation bleeds into her past abduction and Dmitri vows revenge on her attackers. Their relationship develops explosively and becomes one of equals despite the centuries of age difference. Singh's vampires, angels, hunters, and archangels engage in global power struggles within a complex larger story that new readers will find challenging. An engrossing narrative, vivid characters, and a well-imagined world mitigate those difficulties, resulting in a heart-pounding and strongly emotional read.
BEST BOOK YET IN AN AMAZING SERIES!!
Singh has created a world with an amazing cast of characters where potential and love knows no boundaries. Archangels's Blade's genius lies in the strength and victory of surviving unimaginable horrors and the monsters who create them through a love that transcends time and the courage and vulnerability necessary to turn our most dreaded nightmares into a vehicle dignity, reparation and redemption. LOVED this book!!!
Loved it, much better than Archangels Kiss. Couldn't put it down.
I was tad anxious at first when I discovered this book would be Dmitri's story but I decided to relax and read on. I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed this book. I came to appreciate Dmitri both as a mortal and as a vampire. The main story is that both protagonist have a shared past that they are not aware of. This is for me was made plausible but may be a sticking point for others. This is not a stand-alone novel you must have read the other three previous books in the series to enjoy this one. There are two other plots that allow for interaction with previous characters such as Illium, Ash, Sorrow, Venom and of course the series central characters Elena and Raphael. I couldn't put this book down and it made be realize just how much I've enjoyed the entire series. I wholly recommend this book as well as the other in the series. I look forward to the next book in the series.
