With wings of midnight and an affinity for shadows, Jason courts darkness. But now, with the Archangel Neha's consort lying murdered in the jewel-studded palace that was his prison and her rage threatening cataclysmic devastation, Jason steps into the light, knowing he must unearth the murderer before it is too late. Earning Neha's trust comes at a price--Jason must tie himself to her bloodline through the Princess Mahiya, a woman with secrets so dangerous, she trusts no one. Least of all an enemy spymaster. With only their relentless hunt for a violent, intelligent killer to unite them, Jason and Mahiya embark on a quest that leads to a centuries-old nightmare... and to the dark storm of an unexpected passion that threatens to drench them both in blood.… (more)

This one was kind of 'meh' for me. Entertaining enough I suppose, but fairly forgettable. ( )

The Guild Hunter series has a really interesting story arc to it. I find all of the character's to be very intriguing even the ones that I hate. Nalini Singh can always be trusted to write a series that has engaging characters and a full and fascinating story. ( )

This was another heart-warming and heart-wrenching romance by Nalini Singh. This one stars Jason who is one of Raphael's seven and who is his spymaster. When Archangel Neha's consort is murdered, Jason goes to her court to try to find out who killed him. There he gets to know Mahiya who is the daughter of Neha's sister and her consort. That makes Mahiya a constant reminder of Neha's consort's infidelity and her betrayal by her sister. Mahiya has learned to keep a smooth face and a low key presence as she struggles to find a way to escape Neha's court. Mahiya has grown up believing that Neha killed her sister after Mahiya's birth.

Together Mahiya and Jason try to solve the murder of the consort and the subsequent murders of others in Neha's court while gradually getting to know each other. Jason quickly comes to like Mahiya's hidden strength and intelligence and her optimism even in the face of her troubles. Mahiya also comes to love Jason because he treats her with respect and courtesy.

Jason's troubled past - which we see in a variety of flashbacks - has convinced him that he is lacking something that would allow him to connect with other people. He doesn't feel that he will ever be able to love or even understand love. But Mahiya isn't giving up on him. She is determined to love him whether or not he is ever able to love her back.

This story also adds to the story arc by featuring some of the strange new powers that some angels and archangels are developing. Neha has developed some very frightening new powers. It also talks about a cascade of power that may cause widespread devastation.

This story was a wonderful romance between two strong but damaged characters. I was rooting for them to find a happy ending since the very beginning of the book. I really liked getting to know more about Jason in this story too.

This is a must-read episode for all fans of the Guild Hunters series and would also work for those who are new to the series. The intriguing hints about other characters and romances will encourage readers to seek out the other books in the series too. ( )

Archangel’s Storm is book five in the Guild Hunter series by Nalini Singh. We focus on Jason, the Spymaster and one of Raphael’s Seven. He has been in the shadows since the beginning and we don't know anything about him, but here Singh reveals many secrets about the Spymaster in a way that demolishes and dazzles.

Jason and Mahiya are both mysteries. I loved the mystery surrounding both of them and the secrets they have. Neither had a good life and Singh delivers these reveals to the reader in spectacular fashion. The romance between Jason and Mahiya was a slow and steady build. This build was true to the characters and their sexual tension just sizzles throughout the pages.

Mahiya, what can I say, only that she is not like Elana, Honor, or Ash (previous heroines). She’s a shy woman showing more vulnerability then the others, but she has her moments of courage and strength. Singh shows these moments in subtle way’s that add to the characters growth.

Archangel's Storm had some devastating moments, that took my breath away. Their was also no shortage of action and mystery. Something is happening in the world and know one knows how it will play out.

As always Signh delivers a fast-paced action packed read with well developed characters, a world that is vast and every changing, and vivid descriptions that just add to the enjoyment of reading this series. I’m looking forward to pick up the next installment in the Guild Hunter series.

Rated: 4 Stars

Standing on velvet green grass still sparkling with dew, Jason watched Dmitri cup the face of the hunter he had just made his wife, the dawn sunlight kissing her skin, lighting up eyes that saw only the man in front of her.
