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.

About The Author

Nalini Singh was born in Fiji and raised in New Zealand. She also spent three years living and working in Japan. She has worked as a lawyer, a librarian, a candy factory general hand, a bank temp and an English teacher. Nalini currently lives in New Zealand.

      Comments about Angels' Blood:

      Incredible author who writes with such skill.. that once you pick up one of her books its almost impossible to put it down!
      A modern day fantasy author who is every bit as good as Tolkien and Anne McCafferty!

                Comments about Angels' Blood:

                This was an enjoyable premise. However, the character interaction was at times a little rushed with no real emotional development. It was sometimes difficult to connect with the characters and engage in their relationships. Things just happened too quickly and easily for my liking.

                That said, this was an entertaining story and a great premise. Not sure I'll read the others in the series, I'm still a little conflicted, maybe given some time and distance I'll re-consider continuing my journey with this series.

                There are so many other fantastic books out there in this genre that when making recommendations to friends, I don't think this will make my cut.

                  Comments about Angels' Blood:

                  This is a wonderful start to the Archangel series. Amazing plots like no other, characters are deep and well thought out by the author. A very engaging series, well worth the price.
                  I am very satisfied with my purchase and you will be too.

                  Service and delivery comments:

                  Book was in great condition, no bent ends or smudges. Came within the estimated time which was good.

                    This book is a great read from start to finish, it had me hooked from the beginning. Great characters to fall in love with including angels and vampires.

                    Nalini Singh

                    Nalini, in her own words...

                    I was born in Fiji and raised in New Zealand. I also spent three years living and working in Japan, during which time I took the chance to travel around Asia. I’m back in New Zealand now, but I’m always plotting new trips. If you’d like to see some of my travel snapshots, have a look at the Travel Diary page (updated every month).

                    So far, I've worked as a lawyer, a librarian, a candy factory general hand, a bank temp and an English teacher and not necessarily in that order. Some might call that inconsistency but I call it grist for the writer's mill.

                    On Writing Romance

                    I've been writing as long as I can remember and all of my stories always held a thread of romance (even when I was writing about a prince who could shoot lasers out of his eyes). I love creating unique characters, love giving them happy endings and I even love the voices in my head. There's no other job I would rather be doing.

                    In September 2002, when I got the call that Silhouette Desire wanted to buy my first book, Desert Warrior, it was a dream come true. I hope to continue living the dream until I keel over of old age on my keyboard.

                    Some of the books I love:

                    Rememberance by Jude Deveraux
                    The Heralds of Valdemar series by Mercedes Lackey
                    The Pern books by Anne McCaffrey
                    Queen of the Darkness by Anne Bishop
                    Moon Called by Patricia Briggs
                    Othello by William Shakespeare
                    The In Death books by JD Robb
                    Night Play by Sherrilyn Kenyon
                    Simple Jess by Pamela Morsi
                    Orchid, Amaryllis, Zinnia by Jayne Castle
                    Lady Love by Diana Palmer
                    Loving Evangeline by Linda Howard
                    Demon Moon by Meljean Brook
