Angels' Blood: Guild Hunter, Book 1 | [Nalini Singh]

Angels' Blood: Guild Hunter, Book 1

Vampire hunter Elena Deveraux knows she is the best - but she does not know if even she is good enough for this job. Hired by the dangerously beautiful archangel Raphael, a being so lethal that no mortal wants his attention, Elena knows failure is not an option---even if the task is impossible. Because this time, it's not a wayward vamp she has to track. It's an archangel gone bad.

Publisher's Summary

Vampire hunter Elena Deveraux knows she is the best - but she does not know if even she is good enough for this job. Hired by the dangerously beautiful archangel Raphael, a being so lethal that no mortal wants his attention, Elena knows failure is not an option - even if the task is impossible. Because this time, it's not a wayward vamp she has to track. It's an archangel gone bad.

The job will put Elena in the midst of a killing spree like no other - and pull her to the razor's edge of passion. Even if the hunt does not destroy her, succumbing to Raphael's seductive touch just might. For when archangels play, mortals break.

    "It just didn't work for me"

    I don't know if it was the awful narration (she has an irritating nasal sound) or the cruel angel storyline that just didn't work for me. I love Nalini Singh's Psy-changeling series and had very high hopes of liking this one as well. Sadly the story just didn't draw me in like her other books. If you like stories of Angels that are not so angelic then you will probably like this one. I would suggest listening to the sample narration first. I suspect you will either love it or hate it. I'm just happy I got this one on sale.

    "This was a SURPRISE"
    Where does Angels' Blood rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This was a surprise.... It was slow to start and I had to get use to the narrator... But I really enjoyed this book..... I will be downloading the next one right away..... Here are some of the other authors I've enjoyed. Tanya Huff, Jennifer Estep, Laurell Hamilton, Michelle Sagara,
    Patricia Briggs, Kelly Armstrong are just a few.....

    One of those books that you want to keep listening to - good storyline. Liked both characters.

    Narrator did a good job for the most part.

    "Pleasantly Surprised"

    I tried to start a Nalini Singh novel once before, but didn't make it very far.. this one was pretty good, though!

    There were a couple of corny, predictable parts, but overall, I'm looking forward to reading/listening to the continuing adventures of these troubled, secular angels.

    Also: I want to see what happens to the angel with the blue wings. =P The author does a good job of planting interesting secondary characters in, along the way.

    "Good book, spotty performance"
    What made the experience of listening to Angels' Blood the most enjoyable?

    The book was great, well written and fast paced. The performance got annoying at times, with the nasal tones whenever a character tried to act 'cool'.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Plot and pace


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Narration needed work at times.

    Story
    "Disappointed by narrator,"
    Would you try another book from Nalini Singh and/or Justine Eyre?

    I love Nalini Singh's books, but I have a hearing problem, and Justine Eyre's voice is not for the hard of hearing. Trying to understand her has made the Archangel series hard work to listen to rather than the ability to sit back and enjoy the story. The stories themselves are great, but as I said, the narration is not ideal. Eyre's range is limited, and often her dialogue is almost whispered. I purchased the first four books in the series before listening to book one. Now I have to decide whether or not purchasing book five will be worth the effort.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The world-building and interesting characters in all of Singh's books is extraordinary


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Her voice doesn't have enough range, and she doesn't speak clearly enough for the hard of hearing to be able to sit back and enjoy the book. Also, much of her dialogue is almost whispered, so you're often going back and upping the volume so you can hear what was said.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Angels' Blood?

    None


    Any additional comments?

    No

    Honestly - I can't tell you about this book... I thought I would be able to get past the god awful whiney voice but I simply can't. Listen for yourself and be aware.

    Story
    "A little dark, but still a very good read..."
    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    I wasn't a huge fan of this narrator, but that's just my own personal preference. What I've found with all of the reviews I've read is that there are many people who complain about narrators that I felt did a fine job, so although this particular narrator didn't really appeal to me, you may love her.


    Any additional comments?

    I wanted to take a minute to write about the first 2 books in this series because there were mixed reviews while I was trying to decide if I wanted to take the chance on them. I absolutely love Nalini Singh's Psy-Changeling series and have read many of the books in that series multiple times. After listening to several other series in the same genre and not truly feeling satisfied, I decided to try Nalini's Guild Hunter series as well.

    I agree with some of the other reviews stating that this series is a little dark, but the books are interesting and well-written nonetheless. In the first book in this series, Angel's Blood, I didn't feel like the chemistry between the two main characters was developed/described well enough and felt like it ended without satisfaction in some sense. Then I realized that book 2 in the series further developed the story between Raphael and Elena. After finishing the 2nd book, Archangel's Kiss, I feel much better about the series and look forward to listening to the next Guild Hunter book.

    "Oh my God!"

    Nalini Singh has written a highly entertaining and unikque book with wonderfully interesting characters! Elena Deveraux, (Guild Hunter), catches the eye and heart of Archangel Raphael; a cold, unfeeling super-strong Angel. Great concept, strong primary and secondary characters. Can't say enough!!! Must Read or Listen!!!! I've lost a lot of my "reading time" due to travel, work and studying but the audio books are narrated splendidly by Justine Eyre and almost look forward to the daily commute. I almost never give all "5"'s but this book is GREAT and deserves it. Secondary characters are just as compelling.
