This was a decent start to this paranormal romance series. In general this was a pretty typical paranormal romance.

The main heroine, Elena, has special Hunter powers that make her stronger than normal and overworks herself like crazy (like many UF and PNR heroines). The male lead, Raphael, is your typical over protective alpha male (although he tries to temper himself to allow Elena room). I enjoyed Elena’s relationship with her best friend; they have a funny and cute friendship that added a lot to the story.

I did enjoy the reimaging of a world run by angels and how vampires related to the angels; the explanation behind this was well done. I also enjoyed the twist the story took at the end.

Overall this was an engaging read but not all the different from many of the other PNR series out there. I thought some of the elements in the world were interesting (angles and how vampires relate to them). I didn’t really enjoy Raphael as a character all that much...too alpha male, but I know a lot of PNR readers dig that. I enjoyed the book well enough but am not sure if I will continue the series or not at this point. ( )

The Guild Hunter books were a great series, unfortunatly by the time I got around to reading them I was a little burnt out on the genre and it was way to similiar to other books I read and the characters were hard to connect with. Overall, I liked it but I wouldn't read it again. They are good books and many people like them, my opinion is somewhat swayed because, I've been reading the same genre forever so unless a plot jumps out at me and I feel like I really connect with the characters than it I won't give it a rave review. It was worth reading though, I would just have it at the bottom of my "To Read" list. ( )

Archagels rule the vampire world, Guild hunters take care of the problems the angels don't.. Ellie is a hunter, turned out by her family, hardened from life. She is assigned to work with an Archangel to solve a problem that will most likely lead to her death. He is sexy, beautiful and has little feelings for life. The conflicts of working together may be to much.. to many secerts.. to much danger from a killer Acrchangel and from the very one that hired her. ( )

Super Awesome Book!! I love love love Elena. She has such strength and depth as a character and there is much more than meets the eye in her case. She is fiercely loyal and empathetic towards just about everyone, because she tries not to judge based on appearances or first impressions. She has suffered enough of that from her father who has disowned her.
As for Raphael...let's not get into that. Let's just say that he has a VERY forceful, intense and domineering personality. That and he is the personification of hotness. Enough said.
The setting was wonderfully engaging. Modern day New York houses Angel Tower, home to one of the world's few archangels. The city's citizen are both in awe and fear of the harsh, brutal angel who has no mercy or patience for mortals, vampires or other angels. ( )

Book description
Nalini Singh introduces readers to a world of beauty and bloodlust, where angels hold sway over vampires.

Vampire hunter Elena Deveraux is hired by the dangerously beautiful Archangel Raphael. But 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 doesn't destroy her, succumbing to Raphael's seductive touch just may. For when archangels play, mortals break.
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.
