Review: Nalini Singh is a master story teller who with can suck you into a story so fast that before you know it you’re reading the last page.
When I first started this series I wasn’t sure if I was going to like it. I’m not a huge UF fan, and the story of Rapheal and Elena didn’t appeal to me. However when I finally read it I was hooked. With each book getting better and better. My favorite book in the series however was that of Dimitri, Raphael’s second.
From the first paragraph to the last word in this story I was hooked. There is a lot going on in this book. Alliances are made, enemies are revealed, and Raphael is changing.
We discover more about Elena and her relationship with her dad. No, it isn’t better, but we find out why he is the way he is. Elena has to make a decision about her relationship with him.
There is a lot going on with the Archangels, Raphael and Elena begin to make alliances, and Elena becomes friends with an unlikely ally. Because it’s Raphael we of course get more about his mother.
Dimitri and Venom my two favorite of the Seven aren’t in the book a lot, which made me sad. But we get an awesome fun scene with Illium aka Bluebell and Aodhan. We also discover more about these two, and I can’t wait to see what’s in store for them. We’ve not seen much of Nassir recently, but he makes an appearance as well.
There is a blast from Raphael’s past that doesn’t make Elena happy, in fact she see’s a bit of the green eyed monster.
One of the things I loved about this story is that Raphael and Elena’s relationship isn’t perfect. In fact they fight just like a regular couple. It was really refreshing to see, as we don’t get a lot of that in romance. What happens after the HEA. It made me like them all the more.
Overall this is a fabulous addition to this world Nalini has created and I can’t wait to see what happens next.
