eARC Book review: Archangel's Prophecy (Guild Hunter #11) by Nalini Singh
eARC Provided by publisher through Netgalley
Return to New York Times bestselling author Nalini Singh’s darkly passionate Guild Hunter world, where human-turned-angel Elena Deveraux, consort to Archangel Raphael, is thrust center stage into an eons-old prophecy....
Midnight and dawn, Elena’s wings are unique among angelkind…and now they’re failing. The first mortal to be turned into an immortal in angelic memory, she’s regressing. Becoming more and more human. Easier to hurt. Easier to kill.
Elena and Raphael must unearth the reason for the regression before it’s too late and Elena falls out of the sky. Yet even as they fight a furious battle for Elena’s very survival, violent forces are gathering in New York and across the world.
In China, the Archangel Favashi is showing the first signs of madness. In New York, a mysterious sinkhole filled with lava swallows a man whole. In Africa, torrential monsoon rains flood rolling deserts. And in Elena’s mind whispers a haunting voice that isn’t her own.
This time, survival may not be possible…not even for the consort of an archangel.
Raphael and Elena are the main focus again in this book. While Elena is no longer completely mortal it's always been a question as to what exactly she is going to end up being. They haven't been able to find any records of any other made angels in history. While slowly she seemed to be progressing in becoming and growing into her angel body she suddenly finds herself regressing. This story is fast paced but it seems like it takes a long time to get answers. While Elena is trying to figure out why her body is failing her She's trying to figure out a mystery that involves her brother in law and a killer. Raphael is dealing with his own set of issues with the new Archangel of China. This is some edge of your seat reading. Nalini Singh is a master with words. It feels like you're on a fast speeding train toward the last page. I've got to admit there is a bit of a cliffhanger at the end of this book. It really didn't bother me because Raphael and Elena's story arc has never had a end feeling to it. There's always been a question as to what will happen with these two. I look forward to listening to this one in audio book form. Exciting from start to finish!
