Publisher's Summary

One of the most vicious archangels in the world has disappeared. No one knows if Lijuan is dead or has chosen to sleep the long sleep of an immortal. But with her lands falling into chaos under a rising tide of vampiric bloodlust, a mysterious and ancient order of angels known as the Luminata calls the entire Cadre together to discuss the fate of her territory.

Accompanying her archangelic lover Raphael to the Luminata compound, guild hunter-turned-angel Elena senses that all is not as it seems. Secrets echo from within the stone walls of the compound, and the deeper Elena goes, the uglier the darkness. But neither Raphael nor Elena is ready for the brutal truths hidden within - truths that will change everything Elena thinks she knows about who she is.

Nothing will ever be the same again.

    "ANOTHER ADDICTIVE & RICHLY LAYERED STORY"

    For fans of the Guild Hunter series this will be an auto download because, like me, they know that again and again Nalini Singh delivers riveting plots that are bursting at the seams with descriptive scenes and awesome characters. And this one certainly doesn't disappoint as we join Elena and Raphael once more as they find themselves in the center of Cadre politics, get summoned by the mysterious Luminata, find a village that's terrified of Angels, battle the random effects of the Cascade and uncover a sinister chilling secret that will leave Elena reeling.

    Worth a credit? As we're already at book 9 there's no new love story to be had between these two because the Archangel of New York has already fallen in love with his Guild Hunter.. and theirs is a beautiful and solid relationship to witness. Instead, together they stand in another captivating and, YES, creditworthy story that's cloaked in intrigue, suspense, danger and tension - ready to fight against hidden enemies, protecting one another and are prepared to die for each other. And, as always, Justine Eyre's narration made every chapter and every character come alive.

    Story
    "Great addition to the series :D"

    4.5-5 stars

    This was a great story and addition to the series. This book focused around Raphael and Elena and Cadre business with the Luminata. The Luminata is a cast of angels that have taken a vow of celibacy and seek a path to lumination. A task given to the Luminata in ancient times is to call the Cadre to a mandatory meeting when it becomes time to reallocate the territory the Archangels control. In this case, an Archangel has left their territory un-ruled and the vampires of the area are showing signs of loosing control and killing indiscriminately. Raphael and the rest of the Cadre get called to the Luminata compound to meet and discuss the issue and it just happens to be in the same area that Elena believes her grandmother came from so while she's there with Raphael, she intends to snoop around for any info she can find.

    Things at the Luminata compound certainly aren't what they are supposed to be and the story leans heavily toward the suspense end of things during their time at the compound. While some parts I was able to guess, there were a few twists I certainly didn't expect once things started coming to light. Regardless of the lack of action, things stayed interesting enough that I wasn't bored at all and it kept me engaged from beginning to end (I only stopped to sleep). Also, I really loved how things turned out in the end and it left me looking forward to what will come next. I would definitely recommend this series. :D

    "Luminata & Elena's family history"

    The intro of the Luminata is interesting, though they aren't as immediately threatening as was Neha's daughter (bk2). Much more interesting is Elena's family history. Not saying more- spoilers! Eyre is the voice of the series.

    NUMBER OF HEARTS: 5
    I don’t want to tell you to much of what happens. But in Archangel's Heart we get to see Raphael and Elena’s relationship grow even closer then it was before. We get to see the Cadre come together and actually work together. We get to learn more about Illium and Aodhan’s relationship. We are left with a few questions about Lijuan and what will happen next with the Cascade and the world.
    Yet again, Ms. Singh blows me away with her ability to write a story that makes me cry, laugh, be shocked and fall in love with this world all over again. A story that makes me want to get to the end to see how this story will end while dreading finishing the book. Because that means I have to wait patiently for the next installment. This is one of my all time favorite series and I can not wait to see what is next for Raphael, Elena, that Cadre and the rest of the amazing cast Ms. Singh has created. Really hoping that Bluebell’s book is coming soon. And after Archangel's Heart I really need an Aodhan book .
    As always I let the amazing talented Justine Eyre read this book to me. I am in awe of her voice and talent! I love that I am able to know who is speaking with each passage without have to be told. I hope that they never switch narrators for this series. Ms. Eyre is just flat out amazing. I can not wait for our next meeting in book 10 so she can read more to me!!

    Whats to tell I am your avarage 30something, with kids, a husband, job and life. Besides that I drive a lot and love to listen to books instead of the radio. I will stay up until 3am in bed listening if the book is worth it, and I have also been known to return a couple of books that I could not get threw the first chapter. I am a bad speller so I apoligize for it now, but will be honest about my reviews.

    "OK I'll Admit It...."

    I'm an ardent fan of Nalini Singh's Archangel series.

    In this story, the lead characters begin to mature, especially Elaina but Raphael as well. They become more dimensional as they navigate their lives together as powerful beings and how they relate to other people, no matter their social station. Of course, there's the love thing between these two characters but I look for more than just the romance in any story. Recommend it to Nalini fans.
