From Goodreads:

Vampire 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…

Opinion:

As always Nalini Singh is a master with playing with words to make you feel and to make you see. There is no power such as love and she makes this apparent with every verse of her beautiful prose.

Elana is back among the living. The mortals her friends, her city, her family. She is also still part of the immortal world and she has to straddle the two parts of herself.

Raphael still at times tries to control Elana as he has always been powerful, but she never allows it which makes her an equal among those that are of the most powerful.

She is understanding more of the pain that her father is in and although he made terrible choices he is real. He is in so much pain that is palatable.

This book certainly pulls on the heart strings.

Rating:



Mission accomplished; read again and again.
A masterful piece of writing.

  1. This book sounds incredible. I haven't read anything by her yet, but have heard enough that I know it won't be long before I get my hands on her work. :)
