    "Do not miss this one"
    Where does Archangel's Kiss rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    First audible book I have listneed to.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Elena. Because she is so strong physically and yet so mentally damaged inside. Because of her childhood tragedy.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I LOVE WHEN SHE IS TRAINING WITH GALEN AND BLUEBELL AND USING HIM FOR TARGET PRACTICE. SO FUNNY.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    NALINI SINGHS ARCHANGELS NOTHING HEAVENLY ABOUT THEM.


    Any additional comments?

    I love this series. Read all of them and decided this would be my first audio. It did not disappoint me. I am hooked on audible books now.

    Love fantasy books, usually with a strong female character. I also enjoyed just about anything from J.D Robb I am a fan of mysteries as well. I also enjoy funny and quirky novels anything from Molly Harper is a winner in my book. Since listening to audio books is important to me while I travel I also follow certain narrators as well.

    "Wow!! Book 2 even better"

    Didn't expect the book to get better but it did, I must say I was surprised at how much I enjoyed this, normally I read books focused on vampires strictly but I love the differences in how Nalini brings them into the storyline without making them the entire focus. I really enjoy her work now and will see what else she has written.

    "Bloody and violent"

    This is a very difficult book for me to rate. On one hand, Singh has written a complex world and a multi-layered plot. On the other hand, there were many repetitive phrases and thoughts, especially in the first half of the book, that got old. On top of that, the book is stuffed full of really sick torture and scenes of cruelty.

    So, while I appreciate that Singh can be a creative and skilled writer, I do not enjoy her characters or her stories. There was no one to like in these books, except perhaps Elena and a few of her Guild friends. The angels and vampires, especially the archangels, are almost without redeeming features. They are casually cruel, jaded, careless of life, and after centuries of living, need ever increasing stimuli to feel anything, making them especially prone to torture for pleasure.

    The slow reveal of Elena's nightmare was disturbing and revolting. Really, there wasn't much to like here, at least not for me.

    I will not continue with the series. I was very tempted to give this 2 stars, but will concede 3 stars based on the quality of writing...or the potential, for I felt like Singh wasted pages on repetition in this book.

    The narrator, Justine Eyre, is quite popular, but her voice and delivery didn't work for me. The entire book is delivered in an emotionless, almost monotone, voice. I can understand using that voice for the angels, especially the archangels, but not for Elena or even the vampires. Eyre does distinguish well between the characters, but they all had the almost identical flat tone.

    "Too much S&M for my taste..."
    What disappointed you about Archangel's Kiss?

    Theres something about bloody violence and cruelty thy killssany possibility of romance for me. Love and romance cannot be believable when the characters are cruel to each other at times.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    I will get one of the Psy Changeling books. Same author, much better narrator (Angela Dawe) and its an interesting paranormal romance without violence, blood and cruelty.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Justine Eyre’s performances?

    I did not particularly like Ms. Eyre performance but I would conside a future book narrated by her if it sounds better.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    No. I liked this book even less that the first so I'm done with this series. The author has a much better paranormal romance series (Psy/Changeling) that I highly recommend.


    Any additional comments?

    If you like dark romances and S&M with your love scenes then you will love this book. Othetwise, don't waste your time and credit.

    "3.5 Overall"

    I thought the first book was pretty good, so in that mindset I went ahead and bought the next 3 books on sale. Now I'm not sure that I'm not going to regret that move. I'm having a hard time liking/bonding with any of the characters. Elena is probably the best one but it is so irritating when she gets all hot and bothered by half of Rafael's men. There was also so much sexual innuendo's/lustfulness that it was overbearing and the story lost the excitement one can get from subtleness. Don't get me wrong I like a sexy story but this didn't hit my mark. It has only been two months since I listened to the first one and already I have forgotten half the story, it was that unremarkable. Psy/Changling series is soooooooo much better.

    "To much"
    What did you like best about Archangel's Kiss? What did you like least?

    I do enjoy the angel, vampire hunter aspect of the story, thats for sure. It could be built upon for many years with so many different species and characters. The sad thing is she is drowning it in graphic sex scenes. One or two with out all the graphic detail would be much better. I usually like to share and recommend my series since I tend to follow a group of books to the end, these will not get a recommendation from me at all.


    Would you recommend Archangel's Kiss to your friends? Why or why not?

    No, to many graphic sex scenes


    What aspect of Justine Eyre’s performance would you have changed?

    The whiny voice for the main female character. Haard to believe she is a strong warrior female and have a whiny nasal voice.
