Vampire hunter Elena Deveraux and her lover, the lethally beautiful archangel Raphael, have returned home to New York only to face an uncompromising new evil. A vampire has attacked a girls' school---the assault one of sheer, vicious madness---and it is only the first act. Rampant bloodlust takes vampire after vampire, threatening to make the streets run with blood. Then Raphael himself begins to show signs of an uncontrolled rage, as inexplicable storms darken the city skyline and the earth itself shudders. The omens are suddenly terrifyingly clear. An ancient and malevolent immortal is rising. The violent winds whisper her name: Caliane. She has returned to reclaim her son, Raphael. Only one thing stands in her way: Elena, the consort who must be destroyed.

Hunter Born- great kick-a** character but not over the top
This is the 3rd book in the series that I have read. I don't think I will continue the series. Really liked the story line, characters and narration. Would have given a higher rating but didn't think a sex scene every 10th page that takes 2 pages to describe was necessary or did anything to improve the story. I thought that might let up after the 1st or 2nd book but it seems to have gotten worse.
I enjoyed the building storyline about the characters. They seem that they could actually be real people!
I love the entire series. It reminds me of the Daggers Brotherhood series - well written, hard to put down, entrancing....
Oh that's hard to say - each one was awesome!
Yes, definitely but unfortunately I couldn't. I did stay up too late though listening to it though.
Great listen - highly recommend the entire series!
I love to read. Always have & always will. Audible makes it possible when I can't sit and read. Audio brings great stories to life!!!!
Still loving Elena and Raphael. I was hoping for more detail of the other characters in the series. Especially Dimitri, Venom and Jason. I would love more insight into their lives and to see their characters grow. I still enjoyed the book and I look forward to see what comes next..,,,,
Say something about yourself!
I have this bad habit of loving the first, and possibly the second, book in a series but then I get bored....I always come back, but I give it a break....not with this series apparently! The only other time I got past book 3 and still loved listening was the Black Dagger Brotherhood...so trust me when I say I am shocked I am still loving this series!
This is book 3 in the Guild Hunter series, and Ellianora/Elli/Elena is still kicking butt and taking names! We learn more about everyone's past, more than we wanted to know in some cases, and we have more conflict with Elena's dad, and get to glimpse more of Elena's side of the family...some good...some bad...and one family secret divulged at the end that makes you go....WOW...what will THAT mean for the future story line?!?!?!? We also have some new characters in this book...namely Raphael's mom...but as Elena explained to Raphael not everyone gets along with their mother in law!
Can't wait to listen to the next installment to hear how THAT whole thing is going to go! Such a rich and creative world...Mrs. Singh keep popping those whacked out happy pills because the worlds you create in your stories have me on the edge of my seat!
If you haven't read the first book just give it a try!!! Put it in your wish list and Audible will tell you when it goes on sale for ridiculously cheap....what's the harm!
I'm a 30-something paranormal, mystery, and humor enthusiast. For me, the main character is the most important part of a book.
I really enjoy Elena and Raphael. Really, a lot. I was very interested in the beginning of the story, but the ending felt rushed, and even though I rewound and listened to it twice, there were still a few things I was confused about in the big climax scene ( that didn't feel all that climactic anyway).
Never fear though, I will continue with the series. I'm very interested to see where some of Elena's family developments lead.
I enjoy mysteries, wrapped with violence and sprinkled with romance.
I might recommend the series but not the book. When a book has a weak storyline just repeat platitudes and add more sex scenes.
No. I love this genre.
I have no problem with the performance.
I have listened to this series several times now. Great narrator , great story line
I can't get enough of this series. The story is wonderful and creative, the characters are interesting and the writing is lovely. This book doesn't disappoint.

It's rare that I put a fictional book down. Even if the story or character development aren't great, I usually still want to see how the story ends.
The author is repetitive, the story is not flushed out, you jump from scene to scene without enough context. It's just poorly written.
