Archangel’s Enigma is part rescue story, part road adventure, and part romance — and a lot of fun throughout...I have a few nitpicks. First, I find the Legion fascinating and I’m starting to get impatient with how little we know about them.

Synopsis

NEVER BEFORE PUBLISHED

New York Times bestselling author Nalini Singh returns to her world of dark passion and immortal power - and to one of the most seductive and impenetrable heroes ever to stalk the Guild Hunter landscape...

"Oh, Naasir. So weird, so bloodthirsty, so unique and wonderful...I have fallen for him..." - Fiction Vixen

Naasir is the most feral of the powerful group of vampires and angels known as the Seven, his loyalty pledged to the Archangel Raphael. When rumors surface of a plot to murder the former Archangel of Persia, now lost in the Sleep of the Ancients, Naasir is dispatched to find him. For only he possesses the tracking skills required - those more common to predatory animals than to man.

Enlisted to accompany Naasir, Andromeda, a young angelic scholar with dangerous secrets is fascinated by his nature - at once playful and brilliant, sensual and brutal. As they race to find the Sleeping archangel before it's too late, Naasir will force her to question all she knows...and tempt her to walk into the magnificent, feral darkness of his world. But first they must survive an enemy vicious enough to shatter the greatest taboo of the angelic race and plunge the world into a screaming nightmare...

To tell the truth, I think this book might be among my favorites of the entire series. I enjoyed the back-and-forth between the couple as Naasir wore Andromeda down with his insistence that she was his mate. I relished the chance to see more of the world of angelic politics.

Naasir was everything I had hoped for and Andromeda is such a fierce match for him. She took him exactly as he was which made me like her that much more. Per usual, Ms. Singh ramped up the excitement in this series and left us on the edge of our seats for whatever is coming next.

Archangel’s Enigma is everything I love about the Guild Hunter series: brilliant, unique, honorable characters who fight for what’s right and the people they love. Badass fights, wicked verbal showdowns, big threats and bigger gains, and a romance that melted my heart.

Nalini Singh’s characters are vibrant, gritty, and incredibly composed and Naasir is one of her best. The Cascade plot has so much destruction potential with Lejuan as its harbinger of all things awful.

So much happens in this installment of the Guild Hunters series: the awakening of another ancient, the thickening of Lijuan’s plot to rule the world, and the evolution taking place due to the Cascade (and the continuing effects it is causing). It was completely gripping.

The seriousness with which Naasir takes this task is absolutely adorable, his occasional grumbling about her “stupid Grimoire” when things get romantically tense between them keeping a smile on our faces even as the darkness of this world settles heavily in our bones.
