Angels' Blood by Nalini Singh Review

"Vampire hunter Elena Deveraux knows she is the best- but she does not know if even she is good enough for this job. Hired by the dangerously beautiful archangel Raphael, a being so lethal that no mortal wants his attention, Elena knows failure is not an option—even if the task is impossible.

Because 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 does not destroy her, succumbing to Raphael’s seductive touch just might. For when archangels play, mortals break."

I am going to warn you all that Angels' Blood isn't for anyone who isn't mature. It has a lot of language (slang included) and other stuff. Plus, all the "angels" in the book are morally ambiguous. Most of the angels are more like demons than angels. Then again, this is a much different world with angels, vampires, hunters, and humans. Plus, some modern people.

I'm going to say that Angels' Blood focuses way too much on... Well, it is more like Supernatural, but there is tons of adult stuff in there. Hint, hint.

Ignoring all the weird things, Angels' Blood isn't that bad. Okay, that is me being nice. There are some parts of it that isn't really bad, but there are of course bad seeds in the book. I'll explain more, but right now, I'm going to do a quick overview picture of Angels' Blood. Overall, it is okay. Truthfully, it could be better. And I totally wish that the angels follow more on the traditional sense of angels than these immoral creatures, but the author can do whatever she likes. And right now, the author is putting words in the plot and making it go in a certain direction. I can already see it. This is going to be a "Happily Ever After" book. Even though there are a lot of complications.

The plot is interesting. Elena Deveraux hunts a rogue archangel as she learns more about the angel world. Of course, there is no mention of God or the apocalypse. The conflict is very intriguing, not to mention fascinating. I can almost forget the stranger parts of Angels' Blood. Almost. Please notice that key word in my sentence.

The writing is similar to other Supermarket books. No further comment.

Elena is a tough hunter. It is such a misfortune that she isn't a supernatural hunter, just a vampire hunter/angel hunter. She is funny and delightful despite the line of work she does. She may hunt vampires, but she seems to be bright despite all of that craziness. And her friends are quite the charmer. Both of them. Ransom, especially, is hilarious.

Rating: Three out of Five
