Book Review: Archangel's Blade by Nalini Singh

Title: Archangel's Blade (Guild Hunter #4)
Author: Nalini Singh
Release Date: September 6th 2011
Publisher: Berkley Sensation
Source: Purchased by me

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..

My Thoughts

I am very happy to say that Archangel's Blade well and truly lived up to all my expectations. 
Which, to be honest wasn't a hard thing to do after being mildly disappointed with Archangel's Consort (Guild Hunter #3).

This, the forth book in the Guild Hunter series was fast paced, action packed, and had plenty of sexual tension between Dmitri and Honor which ultimately leads to some great sex!!

I was absolutely and completely riveted by Dmitri. 
He is just so dark and dangerous, quick witted and super, super sexy. (squirms in seat!)

An angelic appearance also from Illium (squirms some more!), Jason, Raphael and Elena means that all the bases are covered, you know where everyone is at.

The story of Holly, who was rescued from Uram in the last book is also rounded out a bit more with Venom making an appearance as her new watchdog. I have a feeling these two are going to play a major part in future books.

I have to say the way in which the past and present were intricately woven together for Dmitri and Honor's love story was outstanding. 
Luckily my girls were at school as I was so enraptured, I devoured this book in less than a day, only stopping for the odd coffee and toilet break!

I would happily and eagerly recommend this book to everyone.
An awesome 5 Star read
