New York Times-bestselling author Nalini Singh returns to her world of angelic rulers, vampiric servants and the woman thrust into their darkly seductive world...

When vampire hunter Elena Deveraux became an angel, with magnificent wings the colours of midnight and dawn, it turned her world upside down.

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...especially not when it seems Raphael is the one who needs her help.

The archangels may be almost all-powerful, but there are some things that only a Guild Hunter can get done and Elena and Raphael may be heading for their most dangerous investigation yet.


Nalini Singh was born in Fiji and raised in New Zealand. She spent three years living and working in Japan and travelling around Asia before returning to New Zealand where she lives, although she's always plotting new trips. She has worked as a lawyer, a librarian, a candy factory general hand, a bank temp and an English teacher, not necessarily in that order. Some people might call that inconsistency, but she calls it grist for the writer's mill


Archangel’s Consort is the fourth book in the series by Nalini Singh. Elena returns home with Raphael to Manhattan and begins trying to reconcile her old life with her new - preparing to resume her duties as Guild Hunter in addition to being mate to the dangerous immortal archangel. Her wings have not made her life any easier, not with her estranged father, and not with the other immortals including Raphael's inner circle of seven who still see her as a liability to Raphael. But when "something wicked this way comes" and a `sleeper' begins to rouse - causing floods, quakes and storms, and stirring immortals to bloodlust and rage - Raphael's love for Elena may not be a weakness but the key to the world's salvation.

I really enjoyed about this book was the expanding story about Raphael's Seven. These characters are remarkable and I can't wait to find out more about them in future books by Singh. Archangel's Consort should be on you must-buy list immediately, regardless if you have read the other books in the series or not. Angels, Vampires, and an Archangel that will blow your socks off. The Guild Hunter Series is a must-have for any Paranormal Romance reader and Singh has done it again with another great read.
