This book had me captivated. I could not put my IPAD down and take my headphones off. I can't wait to hear the rest of the books. The story line was amazing
The love storie
The two best friends
Angels blood..... Not what it appears to be...but better.
I love books and love to get lost in the fantasy. I'm always looking for a new good story to bury myself in. :)
I really liked this book. As the first in the series I was very happy with it and found myself wanting more as I finished it. I like Elana and Raphael and thought that while their relationship seemed unlikely at first it grew believably throughout the book and I loved the ending!! :)
I have two rescue dogs. One Scottish born husband. And a love of books that goes back to childhood and bookmobiles!
well, it's paranormal. you know that by the first word in the title with the word 'angel'. trust me when i tell you these are not the angels you see in paintings or hear about in church. next word in the title is 'blood'. who's blood...angels? vampires? yes. and more, there are humans and vampire hunters!
it's about love and hate, it's a thriller (well, you've got to be with hunters and vamps)! WAIT! that word 'thriller' turns some people off. let's think about it a moment.
i think there are 3 levels...pg (the whole family can watch and read), pg (someone needs to figure out the maturity levels), and then there is the x rating (where there is so much violence and gore that you have to skip page before you can go any further or you just stop there because you don't want to throw up or have nightmares), i would give it a pg rating.
the narration is great! i had not problem following the characters as the different characters spoke or with the disctives in-between.
I liked it but I'm not eager to continue on in the series. The storyline held my interest and I liked the characters but I don't feel the need for more.
It was a good listen
Several things: the female was strong and stood her ground, it showed both sides of the main characters stories, it was not a one sided story, and had lots of characters to explore later.
Although this is well written, has a good story line, & is well performed, this popular series just isn't for me=-(
I am easily amused!
Some parts of this book are so cheesy it will make you cring. You have a typical conceited love interest, too handsome for his own good, and a complete chauvinistic prick. A strong willed warrior woman that has overcome terrible hardship to become the ideal heroine that will break through the man's heart and make him see the error of his ways. Sound familiar?
Stangely enough through the cheesy romance is a intriguing story, vividly described, that is horrific and compelling. A unique tale where angels sire vampires and they become their slaves. Our heroine is a vampire hunter sworn to catch the vamps and return them to their rightful owners. Add in a dysfunctional family, a childhood tragedy, and an Archangel slaughtering helpless females while descending further into the dark side and you won't be able to stop reading. I am hooked!
This story is VERY original. And I loved it when I read it the first time.
It is getting harder and harder to find a book that has a GOOD ending, that makes you happy that you read this or that book. This book does that for me. So far that I've read in the series the author hasn't tourted or debased the main people. (I've lost a few series so far because of that new tendiency). She just writes a very good, extremly original world that I want to know more about, with plots that intrest me, and people that I like to read about.
The ending is perfection, and pulls you straight into the next book
There are a few scenes with wordplay so well written that I laughed outloud, causing my coworkers to look at me funny.
I got the this version because it was on sale, but from my past experience with Audible, I was not expecting much. Oh, how wrong I was. The reading was very good. There was none of the irritations that I have found in other programs. It was very easy to get into the story.
There are few writers I return to Laura K. Hamilton was one and Nalini Singh is the other!
Getting her wings as a result of true love is so beautiful and so befitting for the love-hate relationship of Elena and Raphael.
Raphael's slow but ever evolving archangel to slightly human character was my favorite character. He is regal but his love is pedestrian and universal.
One sitting is what you wish for when listening to this story unfold. The narrator was excellent.
More! More! More!
I've read this story before. I love the series but the audible version has made it even better. I'm going to love collecting all of these. The narrator was perfect. I was right there with her all the way.
