Darker than her Psy-Changeling series and more urban fantasy suspense than romance. Singh's new Guild hunter universe is fabulous with its combination of angels, vampires and human hunters. And even though it is not super romantic, the relationship between the leads in Angel's Blood is still compelling.

As the best hunter of the Guild, Elena comes to archangel Raphael's notice when her talents are required for a special hunt. This time the target is not a vampire trying to opt-out of the hundred years of servitude that is the angels' price for immortality, instead the quarry is far more dangerous - the supremely deadly archangel, Uram, gone rogue. Elena knows that even should she survive the hunt and deliver her blood thirsty prey, she will likely loose her life for her inability to swallow her pride and act the nice little mortal in order to treat the powerful archangel Raphael and his immortal vampire cadre with the submissive deference that they expect - she will not crawl, no matter the price. But it just that combination in of suicidal bravery along with an innocence and forthrightness that captures Raphael's interest and Raphael soon begins his own hunt with his seductive pursuit of Elena. Despite his arrogance and cruelty, Raphael's beauty and power is attractive. And even knowing the danger of becoming one of Raphael's toys, Elena may find it hard to deny her overwhelming desire for the magnificent winged immortal.

Angel's Blood definitely lives up to - and surpasses - its prerelease buzz. I loved this one, even with some dark horrific moments showing the handiwork of the violently insane rogue `blood angel'. The Guild Hunter world is fascinating with its twist on the vampire mythos and the presence of angels on Earth.

For weeks there have been many pre-reviews of this book out in Cyberspace. I've searched for them and read them all, and perhaps because of that, and because of my enjoyment of Singh's Psy/Changeling series, I had rather high expectations of Angel's Blood. Maybe that's why, then, I read the book and wound up feeling disappointed.

It's certainly not a bad book. It's a GOOD book. I enjoyed it, I'll keep it, I'll re-read it from time to time, and I'll buy and read the others in the series as they are published. But while this book was good for me, it wasn't great. That's the part that's so disappointing.

A lot of the pre-reviews talked up the worldbuilding of this book. It's an interesting premise, no question. But at the same time, I thought the worldbuilding and characterization was not particuarly complex or layered, especially compared to the Psy/Changeling series.

Another issue I had with the book was the sizzle factor, or lack thereof. I'm a fairly old-school romance reader. I'm not necessarily a fan of the new super-hot brand of erotic romance. I don't want to read a romance in which the sex plays so significant a role that it overshadows the rest of the story and the characterization. But on the other hand, I've read all of Singh's Psy/Changeling books, and as a result, I have certain expectatins about the degree of sexuality in her books. Most of the pre-reviews really "talked up" the sexual tension between Elena and Raphael and so I went into this story expecting a little something extra. However, in my opinion, there was less sexual tension here...less of a sizzle factor...than there is in her Psy/Changeling stories.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Prior to reading ANGEL'S BLOOD, I was a Nalini Singh virgin. I'd heard nothing but good, but just never found myself in the mood for paranormal romance. My feelings on the genre are uncertain. However, this book, the first in Singh's new Guild Hunter series, is being billed as urban fantasy, which made it seem more palatable and like a good place to start. It does have several of my favorite urban fantasy characteristics. Kick-A** heroine, deadly vamps of the non-sparkly variety, strong world building, etc. But. It remains a paranormal romance at heart. So if extremely heated situations make you cringe, giggle, or otherwise react unfavorably, tread lightly here.

Elena Devereaux is a vampire hunter. She's what is known as hunter-born and so it's not just her job. It's her calling. She could no more walk away from it than she could sprout wings and fly. Elena belongs to the Hunter's Guild and, as such, is hired out to those willing to pay to have an expert hunt, capture, and/or kill rogue vampires. In this world, vampires aren't the top man on the totem pole. That honor belongs to the angels. Specifically, the archangels. Archangels rule the world and, get this, they create vampires. Who are then at their beck and call for at least a hundred years of servitude. The vampires are pretty much evil incarnate, but interestingly enough, the angels are not their polar opposites, i.e. paragons of virtue and goodness. In fact, they're sort of outside the whole good vs. evil spectrum. They run the show. They use who and what they need to to keep the vampires and humans in line and, if you value your life, you stay out of their way.
