Well written. full of action, intrigue, powerful characters & an underlying love story.
I loved that while Dimitri and Honor were the main characters in this novel I was able to see how the overall story line of the series was progressing as well.
At the end of the book I found her to be an incomplete character, who was just as mysterious to me as she was in the beginning.

"I'm going to do things to you now that a good girl definitely shouldn't let a man do to her."

When I first heard that Dmitri would be getting his own book, all I thought initially was - ok. Of all the supporting characters in the Archangel world, I hadn't thought of him having his own story, at least not at this point in the series, but oh how wrong I was. From the start, we're drawn back into this world and into Dmitri's life. He's surrounded by darkness, he's ruthless, to the point, and he shows no softness. We learn why through flashbacks and pieces of memories that Dmitri has kept buried for years. His past is heart breaking and filled with cruelness and he's basically shut himself off to love and kindness keeping only one true friend, in Raphael, close to him.

Honor has survived a horrific ordeal. She's a Hunter and while all her past training helped her to survive, it was her will alone that made it possible for her to stay alive through everything that was done her. When she's brought in to help Dmitri on a case, she really begins to start living again, something she hasn't been able to do for the many months following her rescue. Honor and Dmitri both awaken feelings in the each other that neither can explain, and even when they try to fight everything emotional that's happening between them, the pull is too strong and they both begin a long journey of healing.

There were two separate cases our hero and heroine were working on. The first, and most important to Dmitri, was tracking down every vampire involved in Honor's capture and making them pay.

First of all, let me say that I have loved every book in the "Psy-Changeling" series and the "Angel/Archangel" series by Nalini. She is a very gifted writer who makes you care about her characters, fall in love with their stories, revel in their triumphs, and grieve with them in their tragedy......and you get hot sex!

I was so looking forward to this book...I figured the story would be about one of the seven, and Dimitri was at at the top of that list because he has been such an intriguing and mysterious presence in the other three books that readers could not help but be curious about him. His story in Archangel's Blade is certainly a good read, and the sex is hot, but I was a bit disappointed....well, a lot disappointed that we did not learn more about him.
I also wish that Nalini had chosen someone with a bit more depth and dimension to her character as his soul mate. This story did not satisfy me the way the others in this series have.

Let me tell you why I feel this way:

1) With all of the build up from the previous stories about how sexy Dimitri must be, I expected the sex scenes between he and Honor to be sexy in more ways than just aerobics, and toys. I expected all of that but...I guess I expected more intimacy, more caring, the feeling of mating, instead of mechanically melding. It seemed to be from what we have come to know of him, what he did with Honor was no different than what he might have done with any other female. For even though the words he spoke and the thoughts he had were what was supposed to make that so...for me it seemed that they were just "words in the script" rather than truth.

2) I found the relationship they "flashbacked" with his wife, so much more interesting than the relationship with Honor.

Let me start by saying that Archangel's Blade may be Nalini Singh's best work to date and quite possibly her best hero she's created with the vampire Dmitri. Yes, ladies and gentleman, while I read Archangel's Blade I forgot about my favorite Singh character, Kaleb, from Nalini's Psy/Changeling series. Now that's something astonishing because out of all Nalini's male characters, Kaleb is the end all and be all for me (Lucas Hunter from Slave to Sensation comes in a close second). Dmitri is unlike any hero I've read this year. He's been an important character in the Guild Hunter series since the beginning as the archangel, Raphael's second in command. Dmitri is a dark, almost villainous creature who uses sex and violence to get what he wants. Some may say he doesn't have a soul from what we've seen of him so far. When I heard Nalini was going to give Dmitri his own book, I really thought it wouldn't work. How could she make Dmitri stand on equal footing all her other wonderful heroes? Dmitri is one slick, and at times, slimy mo fo. Well, Dmitri is a cut above all her heroes and more so. Dmitri will slip deep into your heart and not leave. What you think you know about him is so very wrong, and when you figure out who he really is and why he acts the way he does, you may end up in tears because it's so heartbreaking.

Archangel's Blade is not an easy book to read. Nalini throws everything and the kitchen sink in here in regards to Dmitri and the heroine, Honor. These two have gone through hell and back and have barely survived. Their pasts are full of torture, violence, death and disturbing acts placed on their person and their psyche. Only when they both come together and find love and understanding with one another is where they're able to fully heal.
