A horrifying secret rises in the aftermath of an archangelic war in New York Times bestselling author Nalini Singh’s deadly and beautiful Guild Hunter world. . . .
The Archangel of Death and the Archangel of Disease may be gone but their legacy of evil lives on—especially in Africa, where the shambling, rotting creatures called the reborn have gained a glimmer of vicious intelligence.
It is up to Titus, archangel of this vast continent, to stop the reborn from spreading across the world. Titus can’t do it alone, but of the surviving powerful angels and archangels, large numbers are wounded, while the rest are fighting a surge of murderous vampires.
There is no one left . . . but the Hummingbird. Old, powerful, her mind long a broken kaleidoscope. Now, she must stand at Titus’s side against a tide of death upon a discovery more chilling than any other. For the Archangel of Disease has left them one last terrible gift . . . .
The war may be over, but the nightmare lingers on in Singh's 13th Guild Hunter paranormal romance (following Archangel's War). In the aftermath of devastating worldwide conflict, Titus, the charismatic and commanding Archangel of Africa, struggles to rebuild. That difficult task is made harder by the fact that his lands are still infested with creatures called the reborn, undead beings that feast on flesh and spread infectious disease. Finding and destroying their nests is priority one, but Titus's resources are scarce and most other Archangels are preoccupied with postwar tasks of their own. So the Cadre send Titus an unlikely but invaluable helper in Lady Sharine, aka the Hummingbird, an artist known as much for her mental fragility as her work. Though Titus initially worries that the mere sound of his booming voice will terrify Sharine and send her swooning from the sky, Sharine turns out to be a happy warrior who flies solo, prefers pants and tunics to jewels and gowns, and throws herself into even the bloodiest work. Their unlikely alliance and perilous quest to eliminate the reborn keep the pages turning. Though series newcomers will struggle to get oriented, devoted readers will relish watching this charismatic and surprisingly playful partnership grow.

She keeps just getting better
I’m actually angry that the book is over because it’s so good. What a brilliant author.
Sad to say
I am very sad to say, but this book is a huge disappointment. There is a lot, I mean, A LOT of stuff about reborns and almost no romance at all. Maybe even without “almost”. The previous book of the series was the same, but I hoped that with new couple we will have a romance book again, but alas.
I don’t think I will read the next one, Nalini Singh, apparently, chose war, not love.
My only hope that Nalini will continue to write real love stories at least in her Trinity series. Otherwise - after Kresley Cole’s disappearance - I will not have any paranormal romance to read left.
Great addition to an already amazing series. I loved that you added the disagreement between Illium and Aodhan. Mysterious! I hope a book may follow.
