    "What a find!"

    What an interesting world! I was immediately hooked. I've seldom seen a non-religious story regarding angels. The main draw of this book for me though is the relationship between Elena and Raphael. If I didn't love the relationship between them, Raphael would become my new fantasy lover. As it is, he and Elena are such an well suited and passionate couple that I leave them as they are, even in my daydreams. I like the fact that they are both emotionally scarred and have major trust issues, but are willing to work through their problems together. The only thing I don't like is the fact that I have to wait until February for the next installment.

    "I love this series!!"

    I am so very happy that Nalini Singh has been put on Audible. I really enjoy her books. To me, they are always so well thought out and a total surprise when I get to the end and think I have it all figured out.......but don't.She writes worlds that I wish I were a part of. I am hoping to see her Psy/Changeling series on Audible SOON (PLEASE)!!

    "I am glad I bought the rest of this series."

    First let me say the voice of Justine Eyre is perfect for this series she can pull off hard nosed and sultry with the same panache.
    The developing relationship does not slow Elena down. Raphael makes a superb match for the hunter we learned to respect in the first book. Their attraction to one another has not dulled. I am enjoying getting to know the other Angels in this series and look forward to seeing them grow.

    "A little dark, but still a very good read..."
    If you could sum up Archangel's Kiss in three words, what would they be?

    Dark, sexy, immortals.


    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.

    "The saga continues!"

    Just finished book two and man I feel like there should be a spinning hour glass with an over voice that says....will Raphael accept Elliana as she is? How will Elliana cope with her new found immortality? Will the angel community accept her? Find out the answer to these and more in the next episode of Days of our lives!

    It was another keep you on the edge of your seat books, there was a great who done it, and we learn more about Ellianas past and Raphael...very good. The ending was a bit rushed in my opinion but the storyline will continue in the next book, which I will listen to shortly.

    Pick up the first book, worth a listen for sure!

    I enjoy mysteries, wrapped with violence and sprinkled with romance.

    "Good Story, Good Narration"
    Would you listen to Archangel's Kiss again? Why?

    If I enjoy a story I usually will listen to it again.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Rafael. I like how his character in developing and still stays true.


    What about Justine Eyre’s performance did you like?

    I like narrators who can individualize each character in such a way that each person is distinct and the acting is compelling.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Elena's flashbacks were vivid.

    I love books and love to get lost in the fantasy. I'm always looking for a new good story to bury myself in. :)

    "Great second book!"

    Great second book in the series. I enjoyed it and thought it was very well done. It great job of furthering the series. It built on the relationship of Elena and Raphael and did a good job with it while the secondary plot interesting. I was well satisfied with this additon to the series and the only thing it left me wanting for is more.
