REVIEW: ARCHANGEL’S LEGION is the sixth full length novel in Nalini Singh’s contemporary paranormal/UF series-Guild Hunter. The storyline focuses once again on the Archangel Raphael and his consort and lover Elena. There is a war on the horizon-a genocide brought about the Cascade-and Raphael’s territory is the target. When angels fall from the sky by the hundreds and a blood born disease ravages the vampire numbers in New York, Raphael suspects another Archangel has plans for his demise. With his city under attack, Raphael begins to experience a power surge of epic proportions. Is Raphael the victim or the recipient of omnipotent powers?
Nalini pulls the reader into a storyline that will see friends and family fall in a war between the Archangels and their troops. A mysterious pox like disease threatens the vampire population while the zombie-like undead grow in strength and numbers. No one is safe from attack so Manhattan must be cleared of its’ residents leaving a ghost town where only the supernatural remain. Vampires will join with the angels to defend against a powerful enemy whose goal is to take down New York and Raphael’s control. But as one enemy attacks there will come support from a dark and dangerous unknown source, ensuring Raphael and Elena remain at the top of their game.
The relationship between Raphael and Elena continues to grow: their time together is sensual as well as sexually alluring and hot. Elena is the woman that keeps the Archangel’s heart and soul alive; but he is still the most powerful being on Earth and his word is law. Elena may be Raphael’s consort and lover, but she is still under his watch and command. While Elena grows into her powers, Raphael will have to stand back waiting for his ‘baby bird’ to take flight.
Nalini Singh has written a heart pounding, action packed storyline of love and loss; death and destruction; family and friends; intrigue and suspense. Many of the previous storyline characters are brought together in a battle for New York and the ultimate power and control. No one is safe from the evil that approaches and in the end help will come from a source as ancient as time itself and one that has sworn to protect the ‘aeclari’.
ARCHANGEL’S LEGION is a must read for fans of the Guild Hunter series and Nalini Singh. Plenty of background and historical information is revealed through dreams sequences, recall and shared memories. And in the end, it is one couple’s shared love for one another, that is the strength and power behind Raphael and the city he calls home.
