The severed head marked by a distinctive tattoo on its cheek should have been a Guild case, but dark instincts honed over hundreds of years of life compel the vampire Dmitri to take control. There is something twisted about this death, something that whispers of centuries long past...but Dmitri's need to discover the truth is nothing to the vicious strength of his response to the hunter assigned to decipher the tattoo. Savaged in a brutal attack that almost killed her, Honor is nowhere near ready to come face to face with the seductive vampire who is an archangel's right hand, and who wears his cruelty as boldly as his lethal sensuality...the same vampire who has been her secret obsession since the day she was old enough to understand the inexplicable, violent emotions he aroused in her. As desire turns into a dangerous compulsion that might destroy them both, it becomes clear the past will not stay buried. Something is hunting...and it will not stop until it brings a blood-soaked nightmare to life once more. Download and start listening now!

    " Nalini Singh writes about the thousand year old vampire Dimitri in this instalment of the mesmerising Guildhunters series. We find out his backstory, and how that and his long life entwined with the Archangel Raphael's have contributed to making the man? he is now. Another strong performance by Justine Eyre, but a few mispronounced words jarred the enthalment for me - unusual for her. "

    " Enjoy this series and this book is very similar to the previous ones. I like being able to follow all the characters and learn more about a new couple in each one. "

    " This is the first 5 star rating I have given this series. This book did a better job of connecting with the characters. I haven't really felt this connected to Raphael. I guess because Raphael is still somewhat a mystery. The readers don't get to see much into his past other than the fact that his mother killed his father and that he then tried to kill her and failed. Always afraid that he will go insane like his parents but I feel we still don't get much emotion with Raphael, but with Dmitri we get all the emotion with his family history of wife and children. We get to see a side of him that softens us to the hard man/vampire that he has become. The turn of events were a pleasant surprise that was written well without making it too fantastical. I find it more of a subtle flow of events that hinted at what was going on, so when the truth was revealed it wasn't a shock. It made it seem more natural for the story. Sometimes a shocking ending is not what is needed in a book, so I think this ending was well done for the reader's pleasure! "

    " In Archangel's Blade we step out of Elena's point of view, and jump into Dmitri's world. Dmitri is Raphael's second in command to The Seven (a group of seven powerful vampires and angels who have pledged allegiance to Raphael). Archangel's Blade also changes in the sense that we are now looking more at a Paranormal Romance than an Urban Fantasy. We get continuous back and forth point of views from both Dmitri as well as Honor, the primary focus of the story is the romance between them, and they get their HEA by the end of the book. So this is a turning point in the series as far as that goes. I don't know if it's Nalini's plan to make the following books about each of the Seven, but I'm kind of hoping so! Although I'm not usually a fan of a series transitioning from UF --> PNR or vice versa, I think she did well in this particular transition and I also think that it makes sense to move onto Raphael's Seven. It doesn't seem random and out of place, but more of a way to round out the world she's created. Dmitri is a dark and very tortured soul. As we delve into his inner workings and the tragedies he's had in his very long life, it becomes very clear why he is the way he is. He has had some tremendous challenges and your heart will truly break for him in this book. The same goes for Honor. She has gone through some incredibly impossible situations that would break anyone else. So this book is sort of heavy as far as emotion goes. I didn't necessarily cry and I wasn't even close to it, but what I mean is that the pasts of both Dmitri and Honor are very much tragic, so reading about them is kind of hard to swallow at times. But because of their tough lives, this is where Dmitri and Honor are able to find common ground. I wasn't quite sure how Nalini would pair up Dmitri because he is a very hard man and can be a difficult person to relate to. But I thought she did well pairing him with Honor. At first I didn't really see what they would see in each other, but as the book went on, it became more and more clear how much they were perfect for each other. The one thing I will say that I didn't like was it seemed like Dmitri fell a little too fast for Honor. This is sort of justified at the end of the book, but at the same time I interpreted him as being a very tough man when it comes to opening up. But it almost seemed like as soon as Honor came into the picture he became a completely different person. So I think the transition there could've been a little smoother, but over time I sort of forgot about that anyways and really enjoyed reading about their relationship. Overall, this was another great Guild Hunter novel. Although she seems to be transitioning these to Paranormal Romance from Urban Fantasy, I think that she's done a great job with it. Being that she has the Psy-Changeling series under her belt, perhaps that's why the transition didn't seem so harsh. But I'm excited to see what the next book brings us. It seemed to me that Dmitri and Honor's story pretty much wrapped up in this one (as with most PNRs), so I'm hoping we'll get another one of the Seven next -- preferably Venom and the person I'm pretty sure he'll end up with based on the events in this book. :) More of my reviews at I'm Loving ♥ Books.

    " I was really disappointed with this book. I had been waiting ages for it to come out and when it did I was so happy but then I read it. I was hoping for it to be involving the same two main characters from the previous books in the series, but it wasn't which is why I was disappointed with it. "

    " I love the storyit took me a while to warm up since Raphael and Elena were not the main characters. The Gritty determination of Honor impress me as a character and as part of the plot. "
