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.

    "Absolutely brilliant."

    Singh is incredible. This book is so well written, the characters so real, that it will blow you away. Justine Eyre's contribution cannot be understated. The timber of her voice is spot on, and so perfectly realizes the horror and attraction Elena feels. What amazes me most is how chilling and alien Raphael is, even during the steamier scenes. You feel his otherness, his lack of humanity, and it's beautifully horrifying. Nalini Singh has a new devoted fan. Brilliant.

    "Too dark... Little romance"

    I love Nalini Singh's style and I have all the audiobooks available of her PsyChangelling series. I tried this one hoping to see a similar style but I was disappointed. This is a very dark series. Very explicit murder scenes are detailed and it was gross. And let me tell you I'm not easily grossed out (I'm a True Blood fan). The romantic parts although few, were very good but they got lost in torn bodies and lots of blood. And then hearing about evil angels is kind of strange. To top it of the reader's voice can be a little annoying after a while. She screeches! I don't think I'll get the other books of this series. But I do recommend Ms. Singh's Psy Changelling series which is just perfect!

    "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.

    "Great story and characters"

    I requested this series from audible not very long ago and I am thrilled. If you like the paranormal genre this is a great addition to your library.

    "No one build's sexual tension like Nalini Singh!"

    I admit, I have had this whole series in my library for a LONG time....I just couldn't bring myself to start it. I was a bit concerned with a female lead...ONE female for the series. I am use to books like the Black Dagger Brotherhood series where all the players are the same but each book focuses on a different pairing, or even the the Psy/Changeling series also written by N.S. that displays a similar theme....all the same players but the focus is switched to certain characters in each new book.

    It's at this point that I would like to say....I am an IDIOT! If I had just listened to the first book I would have gotten over my prejudices and had some really awesome books to read! These books aren't like BDB or the Psy series....they are like Dune in that they have an intricate world of fantasy, myth, legend....some people are a bit insane....other's are just unlikable and evil. However, the banter is funny as heck!

    Elionorra is a Hunter Born....this means that since birth she has an advantage over the average human, her senses are more advances and this helps her to track vampires. In this world of myth there are 4 types of people...The Archangel's, the Angels, the Vampires that they create and the humans. When a human petitions to be made into a vampire they sign a contract for 100 years of servitude to the angel that makes them....if they runaway the Guild Hunter's are called in to retrieve them. Ellie is such a hunter, but when the Archangel of New York commands her to a meeting on top of Angel tower she is pretty sure it isn't to help get an escaped vampire.

    Raphael is one of 10 Archangels in the world, they are the oldest and most powerful angels in existence...and one of the 10 has gone rogue in HIS territory. Only another Archangel can kill an Archangel...killing him isn't the problem though, it's finding him! He must have the Guild Hunter's help in tracking the rogue before thousands die...he just wished he didn't WANT her so bad!

    What can I say, great start to the series, great chemistry, great action, wonderful plot twists, wonderful book! Highly recommend you get at least book one and judge for yourself if you want to read more.

    "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.....

    "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.

    "Flying High with Angels sounds good to me."

    A good start to a series, not as good as the Psy/Changling series, also from Nalini Signh. This book didn't have as much romance or sex in it as I would have liked. I suspect that as the series grows there might be more. I did have a little trouble warming up to Archangel Rafael. I wish Nalini Singh would have described her world and how everything worked a little better and not just letting us assume details. I did enjoy the writing and the narration was good, Justine Eyre warms up as the book progressed. I purchased the next 3 books on a sale, I was a little leery since I hadn't read the first book yet, but I loved the other Psy/Changling series and now I'm glad I bought the rest of the Angel series.
