BE: Guild Hunters Discussion

NSingh-Archangels BladeWith all the vampires and shapeshifters out there, it’s simply fabulous to come across a series that features a creature that doesn’t get as much attention as they should. I’m talking about the ethereal angels and Nalini Singh’s Guild Hunter series. While she does have vampires along with her angels, neither creature is depicted as simply breath-taking, but as ruthless and practical as immortal beings can be. Do you have a favorite angel? Are you wishing for more of Raphael and his consort Elena? Have you read the fourth novel in the series, Archangel’s Blade, which features the wonderfully brooding vampire Dimitri. Do you just have to talk about it? If so, then join Larissa (from Larissa’s Bookish Life) and I while we discuss this amazing series at Talk Shoe on October 2nd at 9pm EST.

The severed head marked by a distinctive tattoo on its cheek should have been a Guild case, but dark instincts honed over hundreds of years of life compel the vampire Dmitri to take control. There is something twisted about this death, something that whispers of centuries long past…but Dmitri’s need to discover the truth is nothing to the vicious strength of his response to the hunter assigned to decipher the tattoo.

Savaged in a brutal attack that almost killed her, Honor is nowhere near ready to come face to face with the seductive vampire who is an archangel’s right hand, and who wears his cruelty as boldly as his lethal sensuality…the same vampire who has been her secret obsession since the day she was old enough to understand the inexplicable, violent emotions he aroused in her.

As desire turns into a dangerous compulsion that might destroy them both, it becomes clear the past will not stay buried. Something is hunting…and it will not stop until it brings a blood-soaked nightmare to life once more…

Warning: Archangel’s Blade was just released, so it will definitely be on everyone’s minds. We’ll try to keep spoilers to a minimum, but anything from the previous novels is totally game.

Haven’t read the series yet? What are you waiting for?! Here are the books, in order:

Angels’ Blood

NSingh-Angels BloodVampire hunter Elena Deveraux knows she’s the best—but she doesn’t know if she’s good enough for this job. Hired by the dangerously beautiful Archangel Raphael, a being so lethal that no mortal wants his attention, only one thing is clear—failure is not an option…even if the task is impossible.

Because this time, it’s not a wayward vamp she has to track. It’s an archangel gone bad.

The job will put Elena in the midst of a killing spree like no other…and pull her to the razor’s edge of passion. Even if the hunt doesn’t destroy her, succumbing to Raphael’s seductive touch just may. For when archangels play, mortals break…

Archangel’s Kiss

NSingh-Archangels KissVampire hunter Elena Deveraux wakes from a year-long coma to find herself changed—an angel with wings the colors of midnight and dawn—but her fragile body needs time to heal before she can take flight. Her lover, the stunningly dangerous archangel Raphael, is used to being in control—even when it comes to the woman he considers his own. But Elena has never done well with authority…

They’ve barely begun to understand each other when Raphael receives an invitation to a ball from the archangel Lijuan. To refuse would be a sign of fatal weakness, so Raphael must ready Elena for the flight to Beijing—and to the nightmare that awaits them there. Ancient and without conscience, Lijuan holds a power that lies with the dead. And she has organized the most perfect and most vicious of welcomes for Elena…

Archangel’s Consort

NSingh-Archangel';s ConsortVampire hunter Elena Deveraux and her lover, the lethally beautiful archangel Raphael, have returned home to New York only to face an uncompromising new evil…

A vampire has attacked a girls’ school—the assault one of sheer, vicious madness—and it is only the first act. Rampant bloodlust takes vampire after vampire, threatening to make the streets run with blood. Then Raphael himself begins to show signs of an uncontrolled rage, as inexplicable storms darken the city skyline and the earth itself shudders.

The omens are suddenly terrifyingly clear.

An ancient and malevolent immortal is rising. The violent winds whisper her name: Caliane. She has returned to reclaim her son, Raphael. Only one thing stands in her way: Elena, the consort who must be destroyed…

Archangel’s Blade

Angel’s Flight – March 2012

NSingh-Angels FlightThis anthology was originally going to feature the print edition of Angels’ Pawn, a reprint of Angels’ Judgment, plus a brand new novella, Angels’ Dance. However, my publisher has decided to make it a complete GH collection, so as a bonus, they’ll be including Angel’s Wolf as well (releasing as part of the Angels of Darkness anthology in October).

In Angel’s Wolf a vampire becomes fascinated with the seductive angel who rules Louisiana. But all is not what it appears to be in her court.

In Angels’ Judgment a hunter must track one of her own gone bad, while surviving the deadly tests placed in her way by the archangels themselves. Unexpected backup comes from a stranger who might just be the most lethal threat of all…

In Angels’ Pawn a vampire hunter faces off against two rival factions and the angel manipulating them both, and a vampire whose help is not entirely selfless…

In Angels’ Dance an angel trapped in the mountain stronghold of the Refuge finds herself under siege by a warrior angel from a martial court.
