Book Info - Vampire 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 she’s been set 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. Because when archangels play, mortals break…
My Thoughts - I loved the main characters of Elena and Raphael. Elena is strong and independent and I love that she will not back down on things, even when facing an archangel (although this does tend to get her in a lot of trouble). She has been through a lot in her life and although at times her past comes back to haunt her, she fights through her fear and still manages to get on with the job at hand. Raphael is dark, dangerous and incredibly sexy. There is a huge amount of sexual chemistry between these two characters and I love the way the relationship develops between them.
I also really enjoyed reading about the world created by Nalini Singh. Angels are the most powerful creatures on the earth and they are beautiful and deadly. Vampires, on the other hand, are created by angels and are their subordinates. In Angels’ Blood the vampires are not portrayed as all evil beings - although they do drink blood, they do not kill people.
Summary - I loved reading Angels’ Blood; it is full of action, romance, sexual tension and mystery. I especially loved the ending – it brought a little tear to my eye! I cannot recommend this book enough to anybody who loves paranormal romance.
